Consultation commences with discussion with patient about their expectation followed by detailed analysis of the structure of their nose and how it relates to the appearance of their face. Dr. Ujwal Chirde at “Athera” will show which of these components need to be changed or altered to reach the goal.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty is performed through a hidden incision under the nose. Changing the underlying bone and cartilage is all that is necessary to make the change in the outer appearance. Even small changes can have noticeable impact on overall appearance of the nose. Each nose is unique and the decision regarding amount of reshaping or removal of bone and cartilage requires a specialized expertise which is best uphold by chief Plastic surgeon at our institute.

What Is The Course Of Recovery Post-surgery?

Recovery after Rhinoplasty requires one week rest from work. There will be external nasal splint for two weeks post-surgery. One can expect minimal swelling and bruising around the eyes and cheek which usually settles over the period of 4 to 6 weeks. Patient is instructed to sleep upright at night for 4 weeks to minimize overall swelling and to promote smooth recovery. Overtime, as swelling continues to dissipate, the improvements to the nose will become more evident.
Be sure to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your surgeon for the best outcomes.


A rhinoplasty can serve to decrease the overall size of the nose or certain features of the nose, such as the tip or dorsal hump. It can also be used to modify the angle of the nose, the tip or other nasal asymmetries.
Spreader graft can be used in rhinoplasty to widen the nasal cavity. They can also be very helpful in providing structural support, address nasal asymmetry as well as improve airflow for easier breathing.
In a rhinoplasty procedure, there are several surgical maneuvers and techniques that can be used to modify nasal bone shape and other features of the nose.
Rhinoplasty is considered a permanent procedure. It is performed on a fully developed nose. If the procedure is performed at a young age, patients can expect continued growth and development of the nose over time. Therefore, timing of the surgery is of upmost importance.
While rhinoplasty can address cosmetic concerns, it can also improve deviated septal cartilage and thus overall breathing ability of patients. Depending on the anatomic problems, a rhinoplasty can improve sinus issues in some cases. It is important to understand that no rhinoplasty is the same, as every patient’s anatomy is unique.
