What is Rhinoplasty in Switzerland

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reshape or enhance the appearance of the nose. It can also be done to correct structural abnormalities that may impede breathing or cause nasal obstruction. Rhinoplasty is different than a septorhinoplasty that combines a nose job and a deviate septum.

The initial consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon can be done online, your surgeon needs to receive photos from front, sides and below your of your nose.  

Rhinoplasty can be performed using either an open or closed approach, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the surgeon's preference. So it is important to be advised what protocol will be applied:

   - Open rhinoplasty: In this approach, the surgeon makes a small incision across the columella (the strip of tissue between the nostrils) and lifts the skin to access the underlying nasal structures. This provides better visibility and access to the nasal framework, making it suitable for more extensive or complex nasal reshaping.

   - Closed rhinoplasty: In this approach, all incisions are made inside the nose, resulting in no visible external scarring. The surgeon works through these incisions to reshape the nasal bones and cartilage, making it a preferred option for less complex cases or patients seeking minor modifications to the nasal tip or bridge.

During the surgery, the surgeon may remove or reshape excess bone, cartilage, or soft tissue, refine the nasal tip, narrow or widen the nasal bridge, or correct asymmetries to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. If necessary, functional improvements, such as septoplasty (straightening the nasal septum) or turbinate reduction (shrinking swollen nasal turbinates), may also be performed to improve nasal airflow and breathing.

Tip: send photos of what your nose should look like and explain exactly if you want to correct nostrils, the tip of your nose or the main bone of your nose.

Explain also if you had a rhinoplasty in the past and if this procedure shall be combined with another face procedure.

It's important for individuals considering rhinoplasty to have realistic expectations about the potential results and understand that the final outcome may take several months to fully manifest as swelling subsides and the nose settles into its new shape. Nose job can have a different protocol if it is an ethnic rhinoplasty or is a revision rhinoplasty.

What affects the cost of a rhinoplasty is the country where it is performed and the shape you would to have.

If you have a revision rhinoplasty, you might not have enough cartillage and need a cartillage transplantation and if your nostrils are really big you might need an ethnic rhinoplasty.
