Nose reduction – hump shaving – nostril surgery – tip and boxy nose reconstruction
Total Nasal Surgery is also performed to alleviate nasal obstruction to correct breathing difficulties. Septoplasty (straightening of septal cartilage) and submucous resection (removal of a portion of septal cartilage) should be reconstructive.
Surgical procedure nose reconstruction
Nasal surgery may be performed under general anesthetic maybe used. Medication to relieve tension is given before the anesthetic is administered. The sedative and local anesthetic allow you to be comfortable during surgery.
In most nasal surgery an incision is made inside the nostrils, through which the work will be done. The incision provides the surgeon with access to cartilage and bone which can be cut, trimmed and manipulated to reshape the nose and alter its external appearance.
A hump is removed by using a sawing instrument or a chisel and then bringing the nasal bones together to form a narrower bridge. To improve the angle between the bottom portion of the nose and upper lip, the nasal tip is elevated. This is accomplished by trimming the septum through the incisions in the nostrils. If a large hump is removed, the base of the nose is disproportionately wide. To narrow it, small skin wedges are removed and the nostrils are brought closer to the center. Following surgery, a splint composed of tape and plastic or plaster overlay is applied to the nose to maintain bone and cartilage in their new shape.
Duration of Operation nose surgery in Thailand
Total Nasal Surgery (Reduction) usually takes an hour or two, though complicated procedures may take longer.
We will give you detail before and after surgery at our Institute.
Seven days in Thailand after surgery for post op cares.

Post Operative Care
After the operation, there is some pain that is easily controlled by medication. You will be asked to keep your head slightly elevated and apply cold compresses to your eyes to reduce postoperative bruising and swelling. Bruising around the eyes will begin to fade within a few days following the operation and will generally disappear within the next two to three weeks.
Since most aesthetic rhinoplasties are performed from inside the nose, there is no visible scarring. The degree of improvement depends on the extent of the corrective work undertaken and basic structure of your nose and skin.
Alarplasty is the reduction of the width of the nostrils to match proportionally with the overall contour of the nose and be in perfect symmetry – a perfect nose speaks in volumes for the face. With alarplasty, the surgeon makes incisions to remove nasal skin and tissue and fashions the base of the nose to make it proportional with the width of the nostril. The procedure is done in 30-45 minutes. The patient is made to recover from the sedative for approximately an hour and a cold compress is applied over the operative site.
The patient is sent home and returns for a follow up check and removal of the sutures 5 to 7 days after the surgery
