The Surgical Nose as Six Aesthetic Nasal Segments

  1. The tip segmentsix aesthetic nasal segments
  2. The columellar segment
  3. The soft-tissue triangle segment
  4. The alar segments
  5. The dorsal nasal segment
  6. The lateral nasal-wall segments

Rhinoplasty surgeon will determine the topographic location of the defect Based on the segments of the nose. , the plastic surgeon plans, maps, and executes a rhinoplasty procedure. The unitary division of the nasal topography permits minimal, but precise, cutting, and maximal corrective-tissue coverage, to produce a functional nose of proportionate size, contour, and appearance for the patient.

There is much type of nasal deformities.  Here is an exhaustive but not the complete list.

For better understanding each deformity is described in isolation while in practice, each individual has separate combination of nasal deformities.


  • Small nose, Big Nose


  • Shor nose, Long nose


  • Sharpen the bulbous tip, boxy tip, or correct pinch tip
  • Increase or decrease tip projection
  • rotation of the tip: piggy nose, droopy tip


  • Dorsal hump
  • Flat or saddle nose


  • Hanging columella or retruding columella


  • Hanging ala

Broad Nose

  • width of the nose, broad, broad-mid, and broad base of the nose

Complex Deformity

  • To improve a complex deformity like crooked, deviated, or twisted nose
  • Corrects some nasal birth deformities
  • Corrects nasal deformities due to sports injuries or other trauma.
  • Corrects breathing difficulties by repairing a deviated septum

You will benefit from nose shaping surgery if:

  • girl should be above 16 years and boy should be above 18 years
  • You are physically fit.
  • You are mentally ready for surgery and recovery.
  • When you have realistic expectations from the rhinoplasty.
  • When the size and shape of your nose is not proportionate to your overall facial features and you expect a more balanced look.
  • If you are feeling that your nose has any of the above mentioned deformities.
  • When you suffer from breathing problems due to some birth defects, i.e., deviated septum
  • You might have snoring problems that can be improved with Rhinoplasty

Limitations of the Rhinoplasty Are

  • It’s a complex surgery. So. One must choose the Cosmetic surgeon with  well experience and should have artistic eye .
  • Tissue molding have its own limitation and so achievable result. One can expect improvement not the perfection. Please discuss with your surgeon before going for the surgery.
  • Nasal reshaping surgery should be not done at the cost of function. It limits narrowing or reduction of nasal shape.
  • Cartilage has its internal memory and sometimes internal healing is unpredictable. Inspite of surgeon best effort, 1 to 5 percent patient require revision rhinoplasty.

Today you get all general information internet. During personalized consultation you get specific information about your nose reshaping surgery. The consultation is an opportunity to ask questions regarding your concerns directly to your operating surgeon.

According to the Technique of Rhinoplasty Surgery:

In closed rhinoplasty, the surgeon performs every procedural incision endonasally (exclusively within the nose), and does not cut the columella. In open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes an additional small, irregular incision to the columella.

The open approach continues to gain in popularity over the end nasal approach or closed approach for both primary and secondary rhinoplasty. There are advantages and disadvantages of both the techniques, but the correct approach determined by the patient’s anatomic deformity and the surgeon’s experience. Clearly, what is performed to alter the underlying anatomy is far more important than the type of incision used.

1. Open Rhinoplasty Surgery

Distinct Advantages are as follows:

  • Binocular visualization
  • Evaluation of complete deformity without distortion
  • Precise diagnosis and correction of deformities
  • Allows use of both hands
  • More options with original tissues and cartilage grafts
  • Direct control of bleeding with electrocautery
  • Suture stabilization of grafts (invisible and visible).

Potential Disadvantages are as follows:

  • External nasal incision (transcolumellar scar)
  • Prolonged operative time
  • Protracted nasal tip edema
  • Columellar incision separation
  • Delayed wound healing.

2. Closed Rhinoplasty Surgery

The Advantages of Endo nasal Approach Are as Follows:

  • no external scar
  • Limited dissection process
  • Permits the creation of precise pocket so graft material fits exactly without need for fixation
  • Allows percutaneous fixation when large pockets are made
  • faster healing by maintaining the vascular bridge
  • Encourages accurate preoperative diagnosis and planning
  • Produces minimal post-surgical swelling
  • Reduces operating time
  • Results in faster recovery
  • Creates intact tip graft pocket.


  • Requires experience and great reliance on accurate preoperative diagnosis
  • Prohibits simultaneous visualization of the surgical field by a teaching surgeon and students
  • Does not allow direct visualization of nasal anatomy Makes dissection of Alar

3. Preservation Rhinoplasty Surgery

Preservation rhinoplasty is popularised in recent years. Where nasal support tissue dissection is minimum to give natural looking result and faster recovery

Preservation rhinoplasty is composed of following 3 principles

  1. Elevation of the skin sleeve in subperochondrial-sub periosteal plane
  2. Preserving osseocartilagenous dorsum
  3. Maintaining alar cartilage with minimal excision while achieving desired shape with sutures

4.    Structural Rhinoplasty Surgery.

Nasal frame work is created or supported by strong cartilage support to maintain the shape after rhinoplasty

5.  Piezo Tome: The Precision Rhinoplasty surgery


ultrasonic rhinoplasty. Ultrasonic Rhino sculpture, Diamond rhinoplasty

How does Piezo rhinoplasty work?

A piezo tome is a specialized instrument which generate ultrasonic energy  and apply to the bone without spreading to surrounding soft tissue.

Piezoelectric inserts (PEI) act selectively on bones and/or hard cartilage, without injuring soft tissues: skin, mucosa and flimsy cartilages such as the upper lateral cartilages and lower lateral cartilages. More so, the fracture lines created by PEIs are very accurate and eliminate the risk of radiating fracture lines encountered with traditional rhinoplasty instruments.

The piezo tome device comes with various attachments of sculpting tools which are used to reshape the bone precisely.

As there is no collateral damage to soft tissue. Reduced swelling and bruising  and pain. Rresult in speedy recovery, less internal scaring and more precise nasal shape. Which reduces revision rhinoplasty need

There is faster recovery and less scar formation and increase patient satisfaction

 What are the Benefit of Piezo Rhinoplasty

  • Greater precision for bone shaping
  • No splinting or inadvertent fracture of bone.
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Less swelling and bruising.
  • Speedy recovery
  • It also allows for sculpting of the bone.
  • It is essential tool for preservation rhinoplasty
  • In some cases, breaking of the nasal bones can even be avoided
  • Can be used for preservation of the nasal bridge.

Reference link:     Piezotome Rhinoplasty

Am I suitable for a Piezo rhinoplasty?

The instrumentation is designed for nasal bone sculpting. Therefore practically all patient of rhinoplasty benefit from piezo tome. More benefit to the  patient with bony hump , bony deviations or bone irregularities and wide bony mid vault.

a piezo rhinoplasty needs to be performed using an open approach. However, the advantages of using the piezo tome for the rhinoplasty outweigh the presence of a minimal scar which is imperceptible.

Why are not all surgeons using Piezo rhinoplasty techniques?

  • Many surgeons may not be familiar with this advanced technique
  • Need to adapt and modify their standard rhinoplasty
  • Piezo tome equipment is considerably more expensive.

A. According to the number of attempt of Rhinoplasty Surgery:

According to the rhinoplasty society –    Revision Rhinoplasty

1. Primary Rhinoplasty:

The primary nasal shaping procedure is conducted when no previous nasal operation has been done. The existing nasal structure is altered to achieve the desired result.

2. Secondary Rhinoplasty/Revision Rhinoplasty

The secondary nose shaping/nose job is conducted when someone is not happy with the result of the primary rhinoplasty. In some cases, there may not be enough septal cartilage left for the reconstruction.

Common Problems that Require Secondary/revision Rhinoplasty:

  • Nasal airway obstruction
  • Collapse of cartilage or nasal bones
  • Artificial cosmetic appearance to nose (“Overdone nose job”)
  • Internal and external nasal valve collapse
  • Worsened asymmetry
  • Over reduction or inadequate reduction of dorsal height (bridge height/hump)
  • Incomplete shaping (not enough of a cosmetic change)
  • Excessive or inadequate tip projection
  • Excessively narrowed nasal tip (“pinched tip”)
  • Excessive internal and/or external scarring (thickened scar tissue)

B. Verious Ethinic Rhinoplasty

It is vitally important to understand an ethnic patient’s aesthetic goals. Some request cosmetic enhancements that preserve their unique ethnic characteristics; others will seek a more Western or white/European standard. Fastidious patients may voice their concerns using accurate terminology, whereas others will have difficulty identifying features they like and dislike. For the latter, photographs of desirable noses will help to get desired planning

1.    Caucasian, leptorrhine (narrow nose);

2.    Hispanic Rhinoplasty paraleptorrhine (narrow-sided nose)

Hispanic groups exhibit varied features combination of their individual Spanish and American Indian descent.

One spectrum, Castilian nose, with long nasal bones, a high dorsum, and normal tip projection is essentially a white nose. Another spectrum is the mestizo’s nose, and overall a short and a broad nose, with thick skin, wide alae, a retracted columellate, under the projected tip. Any anatomic combination along this continuum may be seen.

2. African Rhinoplastyplatyrrhine (flat, wide nose)

It is characterized by a wide, low dorsum and broad, under-projected tip, and broad middle vault. Thick skin, fat layer leads to the bulbous tip. Anacute nasolabial angle is caused by both an under-rotated tip and bi-maxillary protrusion.

The nasal base is often wider than the inter-alar distance, and the under-projected tip contributes to excessive alar flaring.

The goal of rhinoplasty in a patient of African descent include achieving, straight dorsum, improved tip projection and definition, decreasing alar flaring andalar base width and narrower. Tip definition is improved by suture techniques and cartilage grafting. Improvement of low nasal dorsum require cartilage graft or silicone implant.

3. Asian Rhinoplasty: subplatyrrhine (low, wide nose)

Typically, it is a low radix, low dorsum, and broad, under-projected, round, blunt tip. Thick, sebaceous skin contributes to poor definition. The columella and soft triangle are retracted. They have an acute nasolabial angle and protrusive premaxilla. The radix of Asian patients typically lies at the midpupillary level.

Cartilage is overall weak and soft. Dorsal graft placement thus depends on the degree of ethnic characteristics the patient wishes to maintain.

4. Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

Skin is thick and sebaceous and is most prominent at the supra-tip. The radix may over-project, the bony and middle vaults are wide, and the large dorsal hump is common. Tip is poorly defined; under-projected droopy tip. There may be an acute columellar labial angle. The tip deformities may be exacerbated by hyper dynamic action. Nasal deviation and nostril asymmetry are also common.

The goal of rhinoplasty in a Middle Eastern patient is moderate dorsal hump reduction, narrowing of the wide nasal bones, debunking of soft tissue, correction of the nasal tip potion, improvement of tip definition and correction of nostril asymmetries.

C. Special Rhinoplasty

1. Septorhinoplasty

It is also called septorhinoplsty, when the nose job is done to correct the septum, the structure inside the nasal cavities is deviated or shifted thus obstructing proper breathing. Along with cosmetic correction, Septoplasty is done by making a small incision on the nasal inside on one side. After that, the misaligned cartilage and bone is then removed, which allows to sewing the skin lining back to itself using a quilting type suture. With the deviated cartilage and bone removed the skin lining can lay much straighter, which then allows for smoother airflow while breathing.

2. Rejuvenation Rhinoplasty

This type of nose shaping/nose job addresses nasal appearance related to aging, including a deterioration of the cartilage, and a thickening of the skin in the lower portion of the nose. In the procedure, the surgeon gently lifts the nasal tip, restores the shape of the nostrils to give a youthful look to the nasal area.

A.  Preoperative Preparation:

You should be in your optimum health for a safe and smooth recovery.

Once you decide to go ahead with surgery you are advised the following:

  1. Complete your body check-up test
  2. General examination and general fitness done. Nasal examination and CT scan of para nasal sinuses done to assess the air passage. To plan the nose job such a way that airway function should remain patent
  3. Any medical condition like diabetes or hypertension should be under control.
  4. Quit smoking as advised by surgeon
  5. Any nutritional support or on-counter medicine should be stopped
  6. You will be given detail instruction before surgery
  7. The Rhinoplasty surgeon team is always there to guide you in case of any confusion.

B.   On Admission at the Cosmetic Surgery Center

Please inform about:

  1. Recent illness like common cold, fever, urinary tract infection or any other seasonal illness
  2. Your medical ailments like blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, thyroid or any other illness
  3. Any ongoing medication
  4. Past history of any major illness, hospitalization, trauma, or surgery
  5. Drug or any other allergy
  6. Family history of any significant illness like blood pressure, diabetes, cardiac ailment, cancer, G 6 PD deficiency, thyroid, thalassemia, bleeding disorder, or any other illness.

1.    The Cosmetic Surgeon Will:

  • Listen to your concerns and explain to you again about the surgery
  • Discuss your desire nose shape
  • Your physical fitness is also evaluated (you will also be examined by anaesthesiologist for physical fitness)
  • Will mark the operative area with your active participation. This is useful as guidelines in the procedure.
  • Preoperative medications will be started.
  • The preoperative formalities are done.

2.    In the operation theater

  1. Anesthesia: Limited extent nose job/nasal shaping procedure can be done under local anesthesia with sedation. While extensive nose job will be done  under general anesthesia.
  2. Duration of surgery: The procedure approximately requires 1 and a half hours to three hours to perform.
  3. Infiltration: The operative area is infiltrated with a small amount of local anaesthesia and adrenaline, which reduces general anaesthesia requirement and makes the procedure very safe. Adrenaline reduces blood loss and helps to give bloodless operative field which makes the procedure more precise and there is less bruising and less scarring.
  4. Incision: The Incision for a nose job is as described in open and closed nasal shaping surgery.
  5. Nose Reshaping Surgery: Modulation of the nasal structure is done primarily with suture, in addition to graft and strong support creation. Excision of cartilage is done if needed as a last resort. The bony base is modified with osteotomySeptoplasty and other ENT work take care of air passage. Complete wash is given to remove debris and to reduce scarring to get a most predictable outcome. The skin is sutured back with the hair-thin suture material. Nasal packing is provided.And small splint is kept there to maintain the bone position.

A silicone implant is used if previously discussed and permission is taken from the patient.

Autologous Cartilage versus Nasal Implant

Nasal Implant Autologous Cartilage Nasal Implant
Nature of intervention More invasive Less invasive
Operative time More Less
Pneumotharox risk Yes in costal cartilage graft No
Scarring Additional at donar site No additional
Resorption Yes No
Aesthetic Outcome May Change Shape Superior
Tip Tip defining points well created Abnormally narrow and pointed, associated septal cartilage graft help to get good tip shape
Infection risk Less High
Extrusion Risk No High
Supply Limited Abundant

3.    Rhinoplasty Immediate Recovery

  • You will be advised to be in a propped up position, the ice pack will help to reduce swelling and bruise marks.
  • Nasal pack, which is now with airway, so one can breathe through the nose only. Mostly removed in a day.
  • You will be able to walk in the evening.
  • You can take soft diet in the evening.
  • You will be discharged from the hospital in a day or two.
  • You have to come 2 to 3 times to remold the splint as swelling reduces.

Nose Job Result depends

  • rhinoplasty surgery Extent
  • Individual healing process.
  • purpose, and the end goal of the surgery and
  • Operating surgeon’s hand to a very extent.

One must follow the surgeon advice to get best result.

You can see Rhinoplasty surgery result as follows:

  • Immediately: There is a huge difference in your nose shape.
  • 1st week: most of the swelling will go,
  • 1st Month: Major Rhinoplasty result is visible over a month as the majority of the swelling has been reduced now.
  • 6th-8th MONTHS: most of the tip modification and tip sharpening will be visible
  • 8th-12th MONTHS: tip sharpening is going on.
  • The rhinoplasty surgery result is faster with close rhinoplasty technique compared to open rhinoplasty technique.
  • Revision rhinoplasty takes longer to show result than primary rhinoplasty



Take as much liquid as possible once you are comfortable, there is no diet restriction once you are out of anaesthesia, better to take soft diet which will be easy to chew and nutritious diet to hasten  healing and recovery.


Keep the head of the bed elevated at an angle of 45 degrees for the first 1 week after surgery, it will reduce oedema faster and will help to maximise postoperative comfort. Avoid rolling onto your face. You can change your position and turn to side. Don’t turn to prone position.


You are advised to walk in the evening on the day of surgery once you are conscious. One can do office like job in 6 to 8 days. One can do cardio like activity after 15 days and heavy gym and jerky activity after 4 weeks of surgery.


  • Recovery varies patient to patient.
  • There will be feeling like common cold but as internal swelling goes, you will feel better.
  • On an average, first few days it is normal to have swelling. Most of your swelling should resolve over a week. Your nose mainly tip may appear fat after removal of splint and it will naturally dissipate over time.
  • Mild bruising may occur under the eyes if so will disappear over 2 to 3 weeks after surgery. Numbness is normal and will subside over the coming weeks to months.
  • Mild blood stained discharge is common.
  • Lower lip swelling will reduce gradually.


  • Cold compresses should be applied across the eyes for the first 48 hours after surgery.
  • The stitches inside the nose are dissolvable and keeping them lubricated helps to quicken the healing process.
  • Keep moisturizing the lower lip to prevent drying of lips
  • It is important to keep the tape and splint on your nose for 7 days. Doctor will do the dressing.

Q: What is rhinoplasty?
A: Rhinoplasty is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasty aims to make your nose in harmony with your face also considering your age, gender, body structure, and ethnicity.

Q: What is involved in rhinoplasty surgery?
A: Rhinoplasty commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is a surgery to change the shape of your nose by repositioning the cartilage or bone beneath the skin of your nose.
