Do you need Nose Surgery for breathing or aesthetic reasons?

Nose surgery can include all those nasal surgical treatments that significantly change 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 aging, and other cases related to injuries that have contributed to nasal deformity or nasal obstruction that make breathing difficult.

Nose surgeries are a group of procedures that can include nose reshaping, as part of rhinoplasty that changes the shape and size of the nose, and other procedures aimed at repairing a broken nose, removing septal deviation, or protruding tip.

Nose Surgery

Am I a Good Candidate for Nose Surgery?

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose or are experiencing difficulty breathing caused by nasal obstructions, you should consider nose surgery.

As with all facial plastic surgery, the prerequisites are 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.

Patients become more aware of their appearance, their self-confidence increases, and the general feeling of satisfaction and happiness is more pronounced.

On the other hand, patients experiencing discomfort caused by 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 the aesthetic and functional properties of the nose.

Most Popular Nasal Surgery Procedures

Nasal surgeries are among the most sought after surgical procedures in the field of plastic surgery. Each nose is different, so each procedure requires a completely individual approach to each patient.

The most common nose surgery procedures are:


Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is the most famous and most commonly performed procedure with the goal of reshaping the nose.


Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to remove or reshape nasal obstructions to increase airflow and thus improve breathing.

Mini Nose Job or Tip Rhinoplasty

Mini Nose Job, or Nose Tip Rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at reshaping the tip of the nose to achieve a more balanced and harmonious appearance.

Asian Rhinoplasty

Asian rhinoplasty, unlike classical or caucasian rhinoplasty, 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, but also 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 taking actions that can 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.

For more information on recovery, you can visit our page with instructions and guidelines to help you get your recovery going as smoothly as possible.

How Much Is Nose Surgery? – Prices and Costs

Each nasal surgery is an extremely individual surgical procedure, so it is impossible to determine a mean cost that would apply to all patients.

Dr. Sackelariou will give you a price quote during the first consultation for your Nose Surgery.  This will include a Surgeon’s fee, Anaesthetist fee, Surgical Assistant fee, and hospital fees.

Some of the procedures of nose surgery are covered by Medicare health insurance and mainly relate to procedures that are closely related to the functionality of the nose.
