Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is one of the most requested cosmetic surgeries in the world. It is a procedure used for nose reshaping to correct different nose abnormalities. Also known as a nose job in Dubai, it can be performed for cosmetic or health reasons such as a deviated septum that interferes in breathing. You can try this procedure, if your nose is too broad, too long, or has bumps on it. A number of factors define rhinoplasty cost but the average cost is approximately AED 20,000 or $5,445.
What are the Reasons to get Rhinoplasty In Dubai?
Reasons to have a rhinoplasty procedure vary from person to person. However, there are two primary reasons to get a nose job i.e. aesthetic and medical.
Some people, who feel that their nose is negatively affecting their overall features usually go through this procedure to:

Make the nose surface smooth.
Apart from aesthetic reasons, there are some medical reasons as well to get rhinoplasty in Dubai and they include:

What is Revision Rhinoplasty?
What if the results of your rhinoplasty Dubai are not satisfactory? Can you make more changes to it? What to do if you do not like the results? Usually, a second surgery, known as a correction or revision rhinoplasty, is needed to correct the structure or fix what went wrong during the first attempt. However, we deliver perfection in just one session.

What is Bulbous Nose Surgery?
Bulbous nose surgery is a rhinoplasty procedure that is used to enhance the tip of the nose. The procedure is performed by refining the tip of the cartilages, saturating them together, and finally adding cartilages harvested from the ear or septum to the top of your nose. A huge number of nose surgery patients request for this surgery.

Rhinoplasty/Nose surgery is a complex cosmetic surgical procedure that requires great expertise. It is performed on an outpatient basis and the duration of the procedure varies depending on the complexity of the surgery and the technique used. The procedural steps include:
Administration of general anesthesia.
Making incisions in the appropriate area depending on the technique. Incisions are made:
Inside the nostrils in closed rhinoplasty.
Across the columella – narrow strip of tissues between the nostrils – in open rhinoplasty.

Then the skin will be raised to allow access to make the alterations.

What should be discussed during the consultation?
If you have given much thought to the surgery and decided to go ahead with it, then you should discuss the following things beforehand:
Discuss the step by step surgery procedure, risks involved and the outcomes you expect from the surgery.
Discuss the different options available for nose reshaping.
Discuss any health problems that you have and disclose your full medical history.
You need to have a clear view of your nose before and after surgery. You can do that by taking pictures before surgery or doing a 3D simulation.
Rhinoplasty has many aesthetic and health benefits. Some of them include:
Improved shape of the nose.
The nose becomes proportionate to the rest of the facial features.
Improvement in facial symmetry.
If the nose reshaping procedure is performed by an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon, then you should expect good and lasting results after the procedure.
Before & After
After the surgery, your nose will become sensitive and swollen for a couple of weeks. The final results of the surgery will become apparent after the swelling subsides completely. About 90% of the swelling will subside in about three weeks but it may take more time to subside completely. The results of nose surgery are permanent. We do not give any guarantee, as the results vary from one person to another.
The accurate analysis of this procedure before surgery is very important. Nearly 50% of the result depends upon the pre-operational analysis of the procedure. Patients should bring the photographs of their desired nose with them before the surgery so that their surgeon could have an idea about the type of nose shape needed by patients.
The Rhinoplasty is done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia.
If a simple fracture or dislocation is present, manipulation of the nose with instruments may restore the nose to the pre-injury appearance with no cutting or incisions.
If a complex fracture or dislocation is present, a more formal operation may be required to solve the problems.
In standard Rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nostrils. The nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissues are reshaped to improve the external contour.
In open Rhinoplasty, which is frequently used for difficult or larger noses, one external incision is made across the columella (strut between the nostrils). Bones, cartilage and soft tissues are reshaped under direct vision.
In tip-plasty, which is done when only the tip is abnormal, either a standard or external approach is used to modify the shape.
Large nostrils may be reduced through tiny incisions at the outer base of the nostrils with either type of Rhinoplasty.
A numbing agent is usually given to the patient so that he/she does not feel pain for some time. The nose is usually swollen and it should not be blown for some days.
There maybe some bruising but it disappears with time. The surgeon usually puts a splint on the nose then removes it a week after the procedure.
The average cost of nose surgery treatment or rhinoplasty is approximately AED 20,000 or $5,445. The cost varies depending upon the amount of work needed and the surgical requirements like surgeon fee, hospital charges, anesthesia fee.
Some bruising and swelling is expected which subsides in two weeks. The risk of infection, bleeding and scarring is also associated with rhinoplasty which can be minimized with careful planning and proper execution of the procedure.
Yes, we use computer imaging and it is a good way to get an idea about how the nose will look after the surgery. However, it should be understood that computer image is just a visual representation of the guidelines and requirements provided for the surgery. It cannot be guaranteed that the result will be exactly be the same as generated by the computer image.
Rhinoplasty is a complicated procedure and the patient cannot always get their desired result. Therefore, you will be needing a post-operation surgery called corrective Rhinoplasty for the desired results.
Most of the patients are physically fine to move around and perform sedentary work. However, there will some swelling and bruising around the eyes and there will be a splint on the nose which prevents people from going in public. Splint is removed in 1 week and most of the swelling and bruising is gone by that time as well.
Risks & Complications
There are a few risks involved in the procedure because it is surgery and like most surgeries, it requires anesthesia. A good surgeon will always tell you about the risks involved and will try to mentally prepare you for any unexpected outcome of the procedure. The most common types of risks and complications involved are:
Like any other surgery, there is a chance of infection, healing problems, or breathing difficulties.
There is also a possibility that the person would need a correction surgery if something goes wrong with the first surgery.
Anesthesia complications can also happen.
The recovery is different for every patient depending on certain factors, some of which may be unique, but there are some elements of recovery that are common for all patients.
You will feel more pain and discomfort for a couple of days after the surgery, which will reduce in subsequent days.
Stitches will be removed within 3 to 7 days after surgery.
