Nose Surgery Melbourne and Sydney – Nose Reshaping by Dr Sackelariou

Precision Nose Surgery by Dr Richard Sackelariou, Specialist Plastic Surgeon.

Do you need Nose Surgery for breathing or aesthetic reasons?

Nose surgeries are a group of procedures that can include nose reshaping, as part of rhinoplasty that changes both the shape and size of the nose. It also includes other procedures that aim to repair a broken nose, remove septal deviation, or protruding tip. In fact, nose surgery can include all nasal surgical treatments that either significantly changes the shape or improve the function of the nose.

Nose surgeries are one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. The main reasons for visiting a specialist nasal surgeon are congenital defects, changes in appearance that occurred during ageing, and other cases related to injuries that have contributed to nasal deformity or nasal obstruction that make breathing difficult.

Am I a Good Candidate for Nose Surgery?

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose or are experiencing difficulty breathing that is a result of nasal obstructions, you should consider nose surgery. As with all facial plastic surgery, the prerequisites include good overall health and realistic expectations. It is important to emphasize that if you suffer from some special medical conditions and use certain medications, you may not be a good candidate for nose surgery.

Also, to ensure a quick and safe recovery, it is advisable to quit smoking if you are a smoker.

Benefits of Nasal Surgery

There are two types of benefits of nasal surgery; aesthetic and functional. In patients who feel reduced self-confidence due to the appearance of their nose, the greatest benefit is satisfaction with the results after a successful surgery. Not only do patients become more confident in their appearance and have an increase in self-confidence but general feelings of satisfaction and happiness also increase. 

On the other hand, patients experiencing discomfort as a result of functional nasal obstructions (that negatively affect breathing, sleep, and more) mostly report significant improvement and an increase in quality of life. Thanks to advances in plastic surgery and the experience of Dr Sackelariou, it is possible to combine these two aspects of nose surgery, so that patients can experience progress in both the aesthetic and functional properties of the nose.

Nasal surgeries are among the most sought after surgical procedures in the field of plastic surgery. However, every nose is different, therefore each procedure requires a completely individual approach. The most common nose surgery procedures include;

  • Rhinoplasty
    • Also known as a nose job.
    • It is the most famous and most commonly performed procedure with the goal of reshaping the nose.
  • Septoplasty
    • Aims to remove or reshape nasal obstructions to increase airflow and thus improve breathing.
  • Mini Nose Job or Tip Rhinoplasty
    • Focuses on reshaping the tip of the nose to achieve a more balanced and harmonious appearance.
  • Asian Rhinoplasty
    • Unlike classical or caucasian rhinoplasty, this procedure aims to emphasize the nose to make its contours more pronounced.

Recovery After Nasal Surgery

Recovery after nasal surgery largely depends on your general health, the possibility of recovery, and the extensiveness of the procedure itself.

General guidelines for recovery include reduced physical activity, following specific instructions given by Dr Sackelariou, wearing a splint, and also taking action to reduce discomfort in the first days after surgery. The duration of recovery is individual, but the mean initial recovery time should not exceed a period of 4-6 weeks.
