1- What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure designed to reshape, resize, or reconstruct the nose. It can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons, such as improving the nose’s appearance, correcting breathing difficulties, or addressing congenital defects.
2- How is rhinoplasty performed?
Rhinoplasty can be performed using either an open or closed technique. In the open rhinoplasty approach, a small incision is made across the columella (the strip of skin between the nostrils), allowing the surgeon better visibility and access to the nasal structures. In closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nostrils, making the procedure less visible externally. During surgery, the surgeon reshapes the bone and cartilage of the nose to achieve the desired appearance or correct functional issues. Dr. Shahram will recommend the best procedure for your specific case.
3- What are the risks and recovery time associated with rhinoplasty?
Like any surgical procedure, rhinoplasty carries risks such as infection, bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, or dissatisfaction with the results. Recovery time varies from person to person, but most patients can expect initial swelling and bruising to subside within a few weeks.
However, Dr. Shahram’s skills and experience make sure the risks are reduced to the minimum, as well as the recovery time, also thanks to the state-of-the-art facilities the Doctor operates in his Dubai hospital.
4- Can rhinoplasty improve breathing problems?
Yes, rhinoplasty can improve breathing problems by correcting structural issues within the nose, such as a deviated septum or nasal valve collapse. Functional rhinoplasty focuses on enhancing nasal airflow and can be performed alongside cosmetic changes. Patients experiencing breathing difficulties, snoring, or sleep apnea due to nasal obstruction may benefit from this procedure.

5- Am I a suitable candidate for rhinoplasty?
Ideal candidates for rhinoplasty are generally in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the outcomes, and are non-smokers. Candidates should also be emotionally and mentally stable, understanding the potential impact of the surgery on their self-esteem and body image. A consultation with Dr. Shahram in his new state-of-the-art facilities at Shape Zoom in Dubai will clarify any questions or doubts you might have.
