A Rhinoplasty or nose job is one of the most common procedures which men and women undergo.

Alongside cosmetic alternations to size, shape and profile, the procedure is also effective for addressing breathing problems like those causes by a deviated (crooked) septum.

Samouris Plastic Surgery believes that reshaping the nose to give a natural looking result requires a delicate balance between the size, shape, contours and definition of the nasal bridge and tip, ensuring overall harmony with the face.

Basic surgical techniques in rhinoplasty include: closed, open and nasal tip rhinoplasty.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is generally used when the patient’s concern lies in the back of the nose and the nasal tip requires little correction. Incisions are made inside the nostrils and are subtle.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty allows greater flexibility and surgical precision for more complex cases, for example detailed correction of the nasal tip and reconstruction following injury or previous surgery. Generally a small, imperceptible incision is made inside the nostrils, alongside an invisible intersection in-between the nasal passages.

Nasal tip Rhinoplasty

If the patient concern is larger nostrils, a nasal tip rhinoplasty can be performed by making small incisions on the sides of the nostrils to reduce the size.

You doctor will advise on the best rhinoplasty treatment for you after an extensive evaluation of the structure of the nose, your medical history and your overall health.
