Girls should be at least 14 or 15, boys 16 to 17 before they can have nose surgery, because the structures of the face change with growing and it is better to wait until full development of the face is achieved to perform the surgery.Younger patients should be advised carefully, to understand the reasons that motivate to want to change their noses. It is important to realize the change should satisfy the patient, avoiding influences from relatives and friends. The upper age limit for rhinoplasty depends on health conditions and psychological motivations that provoke the need for the change. A classical reason for nose surgery in older patients is the rejuvenating effect that can be produced to correct a drooping tip, when performed together with a facelift. Breathing problems can be corrected at the same time. A computer consultation is the bestway to evaluate the change that can be obtained through plastic surgery of thenose. If the nose has a "ball" at the tip, if it is too large for theface, if there is a hump in profile, or if it is too wide, crooked orasymmetrical.

Reshape the nose by reducing or increasing size, removing a hump, changingshape of tip or bridge, narrowing the nostrils, or changing the angle betweennose and upper lip. It may also relieve some breathing problems. The skinquality and the size and shape of the nose in relationship to the face arestudied. Sometimes correction of the chin can be done together with nosesurgery to balance the face.

Incisions and technique:
Results from rhinoplasty will vary according to several factors, type of skin,shape of the nose, etc. Results are individual and should not be compared withothers. The nose can be increased or decreased, nostrils can be narrowed, thetip reshaped and elevated. Usually all of the incisions will be placed insidethe nose. To reduce the base of the nose or the nostrils small incisions areplaced at base of the nostrils, hidden in the natural crease. Sometimes a smallincision is made in the columella, the tissue that separates the nostrils. Thiscan be used in more difficult cases or in re-operations. Though the smallincisions cartilage and bone are treated to narrow and straight the nose. Toaugment the nose cartilage from the septum or the ear can be used.

Operating Time:

1 to 2 hours or more.

Anesthesia: Local with sedation, or general.

Usually outpatient.

Side Effects: Temporary swelling, bruising around eyes and nose. Somebleeding.

Bruising around the eyes and cheeks can appear three days after surgery andshould disappear around the second week. Cover-up makeup can be used to concealthe discolored skin. Most of the swelling disappears on the first month, butthere can be residual swelling up to the sixth month. Usually the final resultof rhinoplasty is obtained around the eighteenth month. Packing can be used inthe first 24 hours to avoid bleeding although it is not absolutely necessary inevery case. A nasal splint, when used is usually removed between the 5th and7th day after surgery. Back to work: 1 to 2 weeks. Strenuous activities: 2 to 3weeks. Sun exposure: one to two months.

Serious complications from rhinoplasty are not common. Potential complicationsinclude hematoma (an accumulation of blood under the skin which may requireremoval), infection and reactions to anesthesia. Numbness of the skin followingrhinoplasty may occur but is usually temporary. Occasionally, furtherimprovement can be obtained through a second procedure.

There should be no pain after rhinoplasty. Dressings usually stay for sevendays. Stitches usually reabsorb and do not have to be removed. During the firsttwo days after surgery it is necessary to sleep with the head elevated toreduce swelling and the possibility of minor bleeding. A small amount ofbleeding on the dressing is not uncommon on the first two days.
