Aesthetic correction and nose surgery

Aesthetic correction of the nose is one of the most complex surgical procedures. Nose surgery is an intervention that includes the reduction of the pronounced nasal ridge, the change in the size of the nose, the shape of the tip of the nose, the width of the nostrils, the angle between the nose and the upper lip, as well as the correction of the curves of the nose. In addition to the aesthetic, the operation can also have a functional character when correcting breathing difficulties, most often caused by a distorted nasal septum. It also includes congenital deformities as well as those resulting from injuries.

We do not suggest intervention before the age of 18, when the facial structures finish their growth.

It should be emphasized that the input parameters such as the size and shape of the nose are limiting because excessive changes can lead to a bad aesthetic and ultimately functional result. We must not forget that apart from an important aesthetic and dominantly personal characteristic, the nose is also an important organ of smell and the main organ of breathing, and that the function of breathing is most often impaired. Aesthetic correction and nose surgery is often great way to reduce personal, aesthetic and functional problems.

Preoperative preparation

Checking the general state of health and basic laboratory analyzes is mandatory for all patients. The surgeon must be familiar with all health problems, breathing problems, allergic reactions, previous surgeries and injuries to the nose, taking medications, sports activities, etc. During the preoperative preparation, photo documentation is made, which is supplemented with photos during and after the operation, as well as during dressing.


  • Anesthesia: nose correction is an operation performed under general endotracheal anesthesia. Less limited interventions can be performed under local anesthesia and intravenous sedation.
  • Duration: The procedure lasts from one to two hours depending on the complexity of the operation.

Postoperative course

After surgery, the patient lies with a soft headrest and cold compresses over the eyes to reduce the expected mild swelling. If the nasal bones were broken, the swelling is more pronounced, with bleeding. Nasal tampons are removed on the first or second day to facilitate breathing.

Pain is minimal and easily controlled with medication. The nose is fixed with plasters or a plaster mask, which are removed on the fifth to seventh day after the operation. The sutures on the incisions fall off spontaneously and do not need to be removed. Blood spots on the face gradually fade and disappear three to five days after the operation. Return to work can be expected after two weeks. In the first month, you should avoid more intense physical activities and situations in which there is a risk of injuring the nose. The final results are evaluated only after one year. Also, it is important to warn patients to stop smoking, at least two to three weeks before surgery.


Possible complications in terms of bleeding or infection are very rare. Minor asymmetry and irregularity is possible within the first year. Secondary corrections are recommended only after one year of surgery. As with any operation, there are risks of an allergic reaction to anesthesia, bleeding and infection, but they are reduced to a minimum when they are performed in a completely sterile room and when the procedure is performed, strictly according to the protocol, by an experienced surgeon such as in Naša mala klinika.
