How is rhinoplasty different from septoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgery to change the shape of the nose. Because both breathing and the nose’s shape are interrelated, a rhinoplasty may sometimes be performed not only to change the way the nose looks but also to improve breathing through the nose.
Septoplasty is a surgery to improve breathing by straightening the wall inside the nose that divides the nasal passages into a right and a left side (nasal septum). When the septum is crooked, it can make it harder to breathe through the nose. A septoplasty is often combined with a rhinoplasty.
Is rhinoplasty a simple operation?
Changes made during rhinoplasty are often very small. But these changes can make a major difference in the way the nose looks and functions. Because these changes are small, so is the margin for error.
Swelling and the placement of local anaesthetic in the skin distort the nose during surgery, hiding many of the subtle changes made. Rhinoplasty also doesn’t have a standard plan or set order of steps. Doctors tailor each operation to the needs of the patient.
Will I need to stay in the hospital?
Nearly everyone who has rhinoplasty is able to safely leave the hospital the same day after surgery. In rare cases, you may stay in the hospital for one night if you’re having a hard time with nausea or have other health problems that need to be monitored. At Glojas, 100% of our patients leave immediately after the procedure and return the next day for a follow-up.
How long is the recovery period?
Plan to take a week off from work, school or other obligations. You will feel progressively better each day during the first week. One week after surgery, people usually feel like they are themselves again.
After surgery, there will be some swelling. The swelling can take many months to resolve, although most people stop noticing it after a couple of months. People are usually back to performing most activities after a week and resuming all activities after two to four weeks.
Are there risks?
All surgeries have risks. Fortunately, rhinoplasty risks are small and complications are rare. Your doctor will talk to you about the surgery’s risks and benefits in detail before the operation.
Can I see what my nose might look like after surgery?
Yes. Before your consultation, your doctor will take standardized photographs of multiple views of your face. These photos can be manipulated to give you an idea of what your nose might look like after surgery.
Is rhinoplasty painful?
Not for most people. One day after surgery, most people rate their pain between 0 and 4 out of 10.
Will you pack my nose?
No. Packing can be very uncomfortable. But you’ll likely have some soft splints in your nose. These splints have a hole in them to make it possible to breathe through them, at least for a few days. Doctors easily remove these splints at the one-week visit.
How long will I be bruised?
Minor Bruising is normal, it usually lasts two to three weeks.
What should I look for in a surgeon?
Plastic surgeons or facial plastic surgeons with Training and board / University Medical Specialist Education in one of these specialties is a good starting point. You’ll likely want a surgeon who often performs rhinoplasty.
You’ll likely want a surgeon with a good reputation among patients and other doctors. If your surgeon has published many papers in medical literature related to rhinoplasty and is invited to speak at educational conferences that is usually one sign that their peers recognize expertise in rhinoplasty.
Make sure that your surgery will be performed in an accredited surgical facility or hospital. You likely should also feel comfortable with your surgeon. Look for a surgeon who can explain to you in understandable terms what is going to happen during your surgery.

About an Alarplasty
The nose is considered by plastic surgeons as the center of attraction in the face, and its shape or “type” can widely vary between a person and another due to their ethnicity or race. The nose is divided in 3 areas, which are the bridge, the nasal tip and the alar rim-base, and any change in one of those nasal areas can drastically change the whole aspect of the face.
In fact, many of them say that rhinoplasty (or the surgical procedure to change the nose’s shape) can be classified in two types, nose augmentation or nose reduction. The nose augmentation is usually performed in Asians and consists in changing the aspect of the nasal bridge when the patient has a flat nose.
What is an Alarplasty?
According to experts, an Alarplasty (commonly called trimming of the nostril/alae) is a plastic surgery that allows narrowing the width of the nose by reducing the size and projection of the nasal wings. This procedure also allows improving the patient’s facial harmony and the breathing.
The Alarplasty can be performed as an isolated procedure or as a part of a complete rhinoplasty. In both cases, the results are dramatic and the plastic surgeon always tries to make them as natural as possible.
Who can Undergo Alarplasty?
In general terms, any person who only wishes to reduce the width of his/her nasal wings can be a good candidate for an Alarplasty. Most experts say that, to determine if the nose has a “normal” width, you can draw an imaginary line from the nasal wings end to the point where the eye of each side begins. If those points match, you have a normal width in your nose.
However, it is important to know that only a qualified plastic surgeon can decide who is a good candidate for an Alarplasty because the width of the nose must be harmonious and proportional with the other facial structures. The surgeon will determine the best alar size to guarantee a proper breathing.
Finally, as it was said before, this procedure can be used as a complement of a complete rhinoplasty to create a proper facial harmony on par with world class expectations making the candidate rather attractive.
What Must I Know Before Having Alarplasty?
You must visit a plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure, the best way to perform the Alarplasty and to fill the medical history. During this consultation you must ask the doctor any question about the procedure and the recovery process.

The recovery time after an Alarplasty is shorter than other cosmetic surgeries and you can obtain the final results after one or two months, which is the moment when swelling and bruising disappear.
