Some Things you should consider before having a Nose Job (rhinoplasty)

Before you choose to have rhinoplasty, surgery there are some important issues to consider:

  • Be realistic, there are limits to how far your surgeon can alter the shape of your nose. 
  • You need to be clear and make sure that your surgeon understands why you want a nose job.
  • They need to work with you and decide the on the best method or surgical procedure of reconstructing your nose to your satisfaction.
  • If you have broken your nose, you should medical attention immediately. Swelling of the nose tissues could delay surgery if untreated.
  • There may be projections inside the nose that can be reduced to improve your breathing.
  • If you need nose surgery to improve an obstructed airway it will require a thorough evaluation by your surgeon. This is because your nasal structure will need to be altered to improve your airflow and breathing. If you have a septum that is deviated, the surgeon can recommend that it should be straightened.
  • The bone and cartilage that divide the nose is called the septum. A deviated septum occurs when the bone and cartilage that divide the nose becomes crooked or off centre, making breathing difficult.
  • Results of your surgery may take up to 12 months to settle and become evident. It is important to wait for complete healing before making any decisions about further surgery.
  • There is a financial cost to you as cosmetic surgery does not usually qualify for rebates from Medicare or private health insurance companies www.loans123.com.au can help with this.   
  • If you smoke, you are at increased risk of complications from any surgery.
  • If you are planning any surgery, you can expect a better outcome if you quit smoking.

Before and After Rhinoplasty or Nose Job


The Rhinoplasty or Nose Job Operation

This operation, depending on the type of surgery will usually include:

  • You will be given a general or local anaesthetic (local is when you are still conscious).
  • Surgery to repair a broken nose or other injury will require the use of surgical instruments that are usually inserted up each nostril to push the bones and cartilage back into proper alignment. If it is a bad break the surgeon may need to make an incision or cut so that the he/she can see to arrange the bone correctly.
  • Cosmetic surgery can include ‘open’ or ‘closed’ techniques.
  • The ‘Open’ technique – involves accessing the nasal bones through incisions inside the nostrils and through the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.
  • The ‘Closed’ technique – involves accessing the nasal bones through incisions that are hidden inside the nostrils. Once the incisions are made, the skin is lifted away from the underlying bones and cartilages.
  • Surgical procedures used depend on the work or reshaping required. The nasal bones may need to be broken and realigned or chiselled and/or the cartilage may need to be trimmed back.
  • Stitches, usually any incisions or cuts are closed using dissolving stitches.


After Your Surgery

After the operation, you can expect to feel pain in your nose and face.

  • You will have swelling and bruising around your eyes. The swelling will usually decrease and should go down in a few days. The bruising may take up to two weeks to go away.
  • You will feel like you have a ‘stuffy’ nose. This is due to the swelling and congestion caused by the surgery. There may be dried or clotted blood in your nasal passages.
  • Numbness due to the nature of the surgery and the impact on some of your facial nerves.
  • You will need various dressings, splints and medication to assist the healing process. Your nose will be packed with a surgical gauze. Your nose bridge may be covered with a plaster of Paris splint.
  • The plaster of Paris splint is used to help minimise swelling and keep your nose from moving and to assist in keeping the new profile while healing takes place. 
  • You will suffer from blocked nasal breathing until the gauze is removed. You will have to breathe through your mouth until the gauze is removed.

After the first few hours:

  • You will be able to get out of bed and move around.
  • You may have to wait four or five hours before you are able to eat and drink.
  • You may need pain relief. Ask if you need additional medication.

Complications You May Encounter After Nose Surgery

These are some of the complications that may occur. All surgery carries some degree of risk. 

  • Possible excessive bleeding or the risk of infection.
  • Small surface blood vessels in your nose may rupture.
  • There could be delayed healing.
  • You could suffer from sudden nosebleeds.
  • You may notice some unevenness or irregularities in the shape of your nose. These usually settle with time.

This is a guide and not a complete list of what may go wrong. Your medical history, lifestyle, general health, smoker /non-smoker or several variable factors may increase the risk of certain complications. You should speak to your surgeon so that you are clear on what you can expect.

What You Can Do After Nose Surgery

You should always be guided by your surgeon, not your friends and family. Some general self-care suggestions include:

  • Your surgeon and the medical team will give you instructions on how you should look after your wounds and how to keep your nose clean.
  • Check any medications you take home from hospital, so that you are sure what they are for, how often and for how long you must take them. 
  • If you are prescribed antibiotics, it is important to ensure that you take the whole course.
  • Hold your head upright as much as you can.
  • Your bandages and gauze in your nose may be left in place for up to a week.
  • Wait and let your surgeon remove the dressing and take out the nasal packing.
  • You need to avoid blowing your nose as this may rupture or damage the work done by your surgeon.
  • Make sure that you report any bleeding, severe pain, sudden nose bleeds or unusual symptoms to your surgeon.
  • Depending on your occupation you may need to be off work for around two weeks.
  • You will be advised to avoid contact sports or activities that could cause damage your nose for about six weeks. Be aware that broken nasal bones can hurt and/or ache for up to two months. Your surgeon will advise you on the appropriate pain relief.
  •  A point to remember is that aspirin can increase the risk of nosebleeds

How Much Does It Cost for Rhinoplasty in Australia?

Will my insurance cover the cost?

This depends on the type of insurance coverage you have. The biggest factor is the reason for your rhinoplasty surgery. Cosmetic surgery procedures are elective and nonmedical and are not usually covered. 

If your surgeon recommends undergoing rhinoplasty surgery in relation to a medical condition, some conditions that may be covered are a deviated septum, breathing difficulties through your nose, an accident that causes your nose to be damaged or traumatised then your health insurance coverage kicks in. If it is partial or full coverage of the expenses, your insurance benefits affect the overall cost of your nose job.

Our research indicated that rhinoplasty surgery or a Nose job will cost between $6,000.00 and $15,000.00.

This depends on: 

  • Where you have the surgery done. There are differences between states and cities. 
  • The type and complexity of the surgery.
  • The expertise and authority of your surgeon. They set their own fees.

Some techniques and procedures require different surgery methods and require the experience of an experienced plastic surgeon. Their fee will be higher than a less experienced surgeon.
