Our nose plays a central role in our face. If it is perceived to be too broad, too narrow or too large, our face appears to be out of proportion. Nose surgery can rectify these disproportions, so that the nose is harmoniously embedded in the overall structure of the face. The naturalness and the individuality of the outcome is of course crucial.
Nose surgery is performed under general anesthetic (inpatient or outpatient), the incision is generally made in the nasal vestibule, so that there are no visible scars. Open nose surgery is an exception to this.
Once the procedure is completed, the nose is stabilized and protected with a plastic splint. The stitches are removed after five days. You are fit for society again after two weeks. At this time sporting activities can also be resumed.
