Rhinoplasty Surgery – Nose Job in Melbourne and Sydney

A Rhinoplasty or more simply a “nose job”, changes the shape of your nose. As the focal point of the face, your nose plays a key role in creating attractive, balanced features.

Dr Richard Sackelariou is a top Rhinoplasty Surgeon for Nose Reshaping procedures and secondary “re-dos”, offering patients well-balanced, natural-looking and uplifted post-surgery results.

An “out of proportion’ nose can impact your self-esteem and throws off the balance of your face. Rhinoplasty alters the bones and cartilages that make up the skeleton of the nose, the lining of the nasal passageways and even the skin covering. This surgery changes the profile, length and/or width of the nose or changes the shape of your nose tip.

Surgeons also perform the operation closed (with all incisions inside the nostrils) which is popular for Rhinoplasty Surgery. Open Rhinoplasty (with a small incision underneath the nose) is popular for revisional surgery.

Who Can Benefit from Rhinoplasty?

Naturally Disproportionate Noses

Further some patients are unfortunately born with natural nasal deformities including overly large noses and nasal humps or bumps. This issue affects children, teens and adults, leading to ridicule and a severe decline in self-confidence. Rhinoplasty can also be performed on patients with fully developed noses.

Trauma or Accident Induced Deformities

Accidents cause deformities to the nose such humps or bumps, and/or a crooked, misshapen appearance. Some patients wish to correct their noses immediately after their accidents. However, Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed years after your accident.

Breathing and Snoring Issues

Chronic snoring is not only frustrating for your partner or family, it can also be the sign of a more serious condition. A deviated septum is the most common nasal deformity that can cause breathing issues – including the dangerous condition, sleep apnea. Further, deviated septums can occur naturally or due to trauma. As well as these issues, patients often have difficulty breathing in general. Rhinoplasty surgery can also help correct this issue.

What do You Want from Your Rhinoplasty Procedure?

Decreased Size

Patients with large noses or dropping nose tips feel like their faces are unbalanced and unattractive. Rhinoplasty surgery helps correct these issues and gives you back your confidence.

Improved Appearance

Crooked or misshapen noses, or noses with humps or bumps affects your appearance. Whether they be naturally occurring or due to trauma, Rhinoplasty surgery corrects the shape and appearance of your nose.

Improved Breathing

Septoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that helps improve a deviated septum. The septum straightens to restore a natural balance to your nasal passages. Further, this procedure can be performed alone or alongside anther Rhinoplasty procedure.

A Natural Appearance

Many patients simply desire a more natural appearance to their nose and face. Rhinoplasty surgery corrects large, crooked, bumpy or drooping noses to give you back your confidence.

Healing continues for a while after surgery as the skin shrinks and adjusts to the new framework. The quality of the skin overlying the nasal cartilage is an important factor in the final appearance of the nose. Thick and oily skin doesn’t conform well and may compromise the result. Older skin does not possess the elastic properties of younger skin and may preclude an optimal result.

Remember: there is no guarantee with surgery; the aim of this procedure is improvement not necessarily perfection.
