Nose job for hump reduction, crooked nose and tip of the nose

The nose is a central part of our face, and we cannot hide it in our interactions with others. Studies show that during the first encounter with a person, our gaze instinctively moves back and forth between the eyes and nose, “checking” whether the proportions, distances, and measurements are in harmony—we cannot resist this. It is therefore all more than understandable that changes in the shape and function of the nose are perceived by many people as particularly restrictive and burdensome.

Nose surgery (septorhinoplasty) is an option:

Your nose is too big for your liking or there is a hump (hump nose)

You think the tip of your nose is too big, wide or plump

Your nose is crooked after trauma or congenital deformity

Due to the ageing process, your nose shows undesirable changes in shape

Your nose has already been operated on and you are not satisfied with it

Nose job - Rhinoplasty - Septorhinoplasty

All these terms essentially cover the surgical correction of the nose to a greater or lesser extent.

Which method is required and to what extent for each individual patient varies greatly and must always be discussed and determined on a case-by-case basis.

For one patient, it may be sufficient to correct the tip, while for other patients, tip correction, hump reduction, straightening of the nasal septum, repositioning of the nose, and possibly other details may be necessary.

Nasenkorrekturen werden bei Nasenhöcker, bei einer Schiefstellung der Nase oder zur Korrektur der Nasenspitze durchgeführt.

Rhinoplasty in Vienna

In the Western world, noses are often considered too large, with or without a hump (commonly known as a “hump nose”), and too long for modern aesthetic perception. In many cases, there is also a more or less pronounced impairment of nasal breathing. Aesthetic changes to the nose are often associated with functional limitations.

Therefore, many people seek ways to influence and change the shape and function of their nose.

4 steps to a nose correction (rhinoplasty)

Anesthesia for rhinoplasty

A nose correction (septorhinoplasty, rhinoplasty) is almost always performed under general anesthesia, except for very small corrections.

Method of rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is one of the most demanding aesthetic operations. As varied as people's noses are, so are the possible types of surgery and the surgical steps required for a good result. The following always applies: as much as necessary, as little as possible to cause as little trauma, scarring etc. as possible.

Closed or open rhinoplasty - nose correction

This is determined on a case-by-case basis and after a preoperative examination.
Closed rhinoplasty: In closed rhinoplasty, access to the nose is created endonasally, i.e. via the inside of the nostrils. Certain corrections can be carried out without a scar being visible on the outside of the nose.
Open rhinoplasty: For other and more complex corrections or for certain work on the tip of the nose, however, open rhinoplasty makes sense. This provides a better overview of the surgical site. The outer scar is on the bridge of the nose and is only a few millimeters long. After complete healing, the scar is often barely visible.

Aftercare and recovery after rhinoplasty

- A nasal tamponade is usually required at the beginning (splints or absorbent compresses in the nostrils), which are removed a few days after the operation. We will make special appointments for this. All sutures inside the nose are self-dissolving. If stitches are required on the nose bridge, these are removed after 7 - 10 days.
- A splint for external stabilization of the nose can be removed after 7 - 14 days. Please refrain from blowing your nose for 14 days and do not sneeze for 2 - 3 weeks ("empty", sneeze with your mouth open).
- Light activities can be resumed after 1-2 weeks, heavy physical activities after 4-6 weeks, depending on the activity and the extent of the operation.

The result of a rhinoplasty

The result of a rhinoplasty is determined after approx. 12 months.

Nose surgery - What you should know!

How permanent is rhinoplasty?

The result of rhinoplasty (nose correction) depends, in addition to the surgical procedure itself, on numerous other factors. Factors such as the texture and thickness of the skin on the nasal tip and bridge, genetic factors affecting wound healing and scarring, age and general health condition, as well as external influences like sleeping on the stomach, engaging in sports with increased nasal breathing, and potential traumas to the nose, among others, play a role. This explains why rhinoplasty is referred to as a 4-dimensional operation. The nose undergoes changes not only in the three spatial dimensions but also in a fourth dimension—over time. This process can also extend over several years.

What happens during a nose job / rhinoplasty?

There is no simple answer here. As diverse as the shapes and sizes of noses are, the potential surgical requirements to correct a nose are equally varied. Redefining the nasal tip may be sufficient for some patients, while others may require hump reduction, and for yet others, both procedures may be necessary, perhaps along with the correction of the bony structure of the nose. Following a thorough consultation, a customized treatment plan will be created for you.

In general, however, it can be said that the surgery usually takes place under anesthesia on a day-case basis, meaning you wake up shortly after the operation and can go home soon afterward. Mostly, you will have a splint that you need to wear for 1–2 weeks. Tamponades are often necessary, which are removed after a few days. Thanks to the use of modern materials, this is done without pain.

How does the healing process proceed after a nose surgery?

The acute course lasts about 2 – 3 weeks. However, even after that, there are residual swellings that gradually subside in the following weeks. Depending on the required correction, the sutures are removed after one week, and the splint is removed after 1–2 weeks. In general, you can return to work after about 2 weeks. Pain is generally minor and can be well managed with the pain medication prescribed by us.

What are the risks of rhinoplasty?

The operation is performed as gently as possible. Nevertheless, in individual cases, there may be more or less pronounced swelling of facial tissues and eyelids, as well as bruising. Postoperative bleeding, requiring a second operation, is very rare. Wound infections are also rare due to appropriate antibiotic protection. We will inform you separately about other rare risks.

When is it possible to resume sports and sauna after a nose job?

Light physical activities can be resumed around 4-6 weeks, and for extensive corrections, it may be even later. Sauna and solarium should be avoided for at least 3, preferably 6 months.

How do I prepare for a nose operation?

Before a rhinoplasty, we will discuss the following points together in order to positively influence the success in advance and avoid risks:

  • Good general state of health. This is a prerequisite for rhinoplasty. There should be no acute or severe chronic illnesses that contraindicate a surgical procedure.
  • Depending on the findings, a CT scan of the nose and paranasal sinuses may also be necessary.
  • If you have hypertension or diabetes, you must be well-controlled with medication.
  • Blood-thinning medications must be discontinued well in advance of the surgery and, if necessary, replaced with suitable alternative medications.
  • Avoid aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs, as these greatly impair blood clotting.
  • The same applies to herbal medicines and food supplements, as these can also affect blood clotting.
    If necessary, please indicate this when making the appointment.
  • There should be no febrile infections or fever blisters present.
  • Smoking constricts blood vessels and thus leads to circulatory disorders. This can lead to serious wound healing disorders. For this reason, I strongly recommend not smoking for 6 weeks before and 6 weeks after the operation.
  • Prepare everything you will need after the operation at home and put the most important things within easy reach so that you can devote yourself to your recovery after the operation.
  • Organize your transport home, as you are unable to drive yourself.
  • Also avoid excessive alcohol consumption during this time.
  • Regardless of the type of procedure, drinking enough water before and after the procedure is necessary for recovery.
