Nose correction may be indicated in case of an unaesthetic nose shape, such as hump nose, long nose, tilted or asymmetric nose, broad nose tip, etc. The intervention leads to an aesthetically pleasing nose that suits the shape of the face. In a preliminary consultation, the nose shape to be expected is simulated on the PC and discussed in detail.
Nose corrections are done under full anaesthesia on an outpatient basis.
We prefer open rhinoplasty to allow a clear view of the nose cartilage and nasal bone. This operation changes the supporting structure of the nose, reshapes the nose and refines the cartilage. The small scar at the nose bridge is virtually invisible. The nose splints (outer nose fixation made of plastic) and sutures are removed already on day 6 after the operation. Work can usually be resumed after approx. 14 days.
