Approximately 2-4 hours.

General or Local with sedation.
Recovery Time after Nose Shaping Surgery?
Return to work in 10-14 days. Strenuous activity after three to six weeks.
Longevity of Results?

Advanced Rhinoplasty techniques utilize cartilage grafts from within the nose to radically alter its 3 dimensional structure to achieve the desirable outcome. A small incision on the hanging columella is often used to do more extensive shaping of the nose- a technique called ‘Open Rhinoplasty’.
Rhinoplasty may be combined with Septoplasty to improve breathing in selective patients. Advanced bioresorbable plates have revolutionized the corrective surgery for deviated and crooked noses.
