Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the nose.

  • Congenital
  • Traumatic injury
  • Due to aging

  • Specific Wicks are placed inside the nose for 12hours which will be removed before you leave the clinic.
  • The severity of Bruises and swelling depend on the severity of the corrections made.it also differs from a patient to another and will disappear within a week.
  • Breathing will be difficult through your nose for 3 to 4 days as the internal walls of the nose are still traumatized by the surgery,which will get back to normal in few days,once the swelling is gone.
