Rhinoplasty (also known as “nose surgery” and “nose job”) is a surgical operation that improves the appearance, size, and shape of the nose as well as correcting any pre-existing functional flaws associated with a deformed nose. The goal of a rhinoplasty in certain uncommon situations may be to repair any damage caused to the nose as a result of an accident or injury.
Knowing the anatomy of the nose is crucial when we discuss rhinoplasty. The top layer of the nose, which consists of bone, is divided from the lower layer, which is made up of cartilage. In order to achieve good and natural-looking results, rhinoplasty may be performed on all three components: bone, cartilage, and skin.
Open rhinoplasty: Dr. Nilesh Satbhai will make an incision in the columella, which connects all relevant parts of your nose. The tip is then folded upwards to open up space for surgery and correct any imperfections within it. This type of procedure makes access easy because it is done directly through one opening at once.
Closed rhinoplasty: Closed rhinoplasty is a much more delicate procedure than an open one. The incisions are made within the nostrils, so there will be no scarring and it’s difficult to see because of restricted tissue dissection.
Septoplasty: A septoplasty procedure aims to correct a deviated nasal passage and improve breathing.
In order to be eligible for rhinoplasty, patients must be adults with completed facial growth. Additionally, patients must either be non-smokers or willing to quit smoking for the period prescribed by Dr. Nilesh Satbhai . Finally, patients must be physically healthy in order to undergo surgery. If you fit into the above criteria then you may be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty.Request Appointment
Dr. Nilesh Satbhai will go over all your medical history and explain the surgical procedure in detail during the consultation. The type of rhinoplasty is determined by taking into account the patient’s individual situation.

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient surgery, which means the patient will not be admitted to the hospital before or after the operation. The rhinoplasty may be completed in a few hours’ time and patients are able to go home straight afterward.
The following are the stages involved in the complete operation:

If rhinoplasty is done to reconstruct a damaged nose following an accident or to improve the nose’s functioning (like septoplasty surgery), insurance may cover it. If the surgery is only for cosmetic or aesthetic reasons, it will be considered cosmetic and hence not covered by insurance. The total cost of a rhinoplasty includes numerous elements like:
The fees for a rhinoplasty are determined by the sort of nose surgery performed, the approach utilized, the surgeon’s skill and experience, the location of the facility where the operation is performed, and whether or not it has been certified.Request Appointment
Some benefits of rhinoplasty surgery are:
After the procedure, the inside of your nose is filled with gauze wick. A bandage is put on the outside part of the nose.
You may walk by yourself within eight hours and be released the same day or the next morning, depending on Dr. Nilesh Satbhai ’s assessment of your vitals. You must remain indoors for the first 48 hours after surgery.
At 48 hours after surgery, Dr. Nilesh will change the dressing. Then, the gauze wick is removed. Dissolvable stitches mean there is no need for removal. They dissolve when they’re done healing. After seven days, the dressing is removed. For 10 to 14 days, a plaster must be worn.
The nasal area and surrounding region may initially appear swollen. Some people’s eyes might appear puffy. This is not a problem because it is a normal response from the body after a medical procedure. The swelling will gradually subside over two weeks.
The swelling’s last stage is at the tip of the nose. After the swelling has subsided, you can see the final appearance of the nose, which might take up to 6 months in some cases.
Pigment buildup under the skin causes darkening of the whites of the eyes (or around the nostrils) in red, purple, and black spots. It will go away on its own after 3 weeks.
Sometimes, Dr. Nilesh Satbhai may prescribe pain medication. You must follow the doctor’s advice exactly. Dr. Nilesh will also give specific instructions for treating the wound. These include taking a bath rather than a shower, limiting extreme facial expressions for at least a few hours, and avoiding strenuous exercise for at least a few weeks.
Routine checkups are necessary to ensure that the healing is being followed and results can be seen.
Dr. Nilesh Satbhai takes great care to ensure that the surgery proceeds without complications. However, like with any other surgery, there is a risk of anesthesia. The following are the other potential issues associated with this surgery:
