A person’s profile is marked by the nose

The size and shape of the nose is very important for the effect of a human face. A deformed nose or one of a disproportionate size in comparison with the rest of the face can be perceived as unattractive. We would be happy to discuss with you whether and if so, what nose operation is useful for you.


What does “nose correction” mean?

In plastic nose correction, shape and size are refined and harmonious proportions with respect to the other facial features are created. Usually, a high nasal ridge is reduced, the tip of the nose is lifted, the nostrils are made finer, the bone structure is narrowed, or the nasal septum is straightened. A nose correction may also be needed after injuries to the nose to restore the original shape.


What happens during the procedure?

During the operation, the cartilage and bone structure is temporarily exposed by detaching the skin and mucous membranes and is then moved into the desired position and stitched into place with self-absorbent sutures. After the operation, a shaping dressing and a splint are fitted.
