Dear friend,

Rhinoplasty is a surgery performed to improve one’s nose shape by correcting existing nose deformities. The nose is the central composition of the human face, and even a slight modification, whether good or bad, cannot be overlooked by an observer. Perhaps this is the philosophy behind the origin of an operation called Rhinoplasty or Nose Job.

Nose shapes differ depending on the ethnic origin of an individual. The structure of Indian noses differs from African and Caucasian noses. Although the principles of the surgery are the same, the nose tissue configuration, shape, and skin thickness vary among different ethnic origins.

Various deformities I come across in my practice include low nasal bridge, hump nose deformity, wide nasal pyramid, bulky nose tip, wide nostrils, and crooked or deviated noses. The only procedure set to correct any of the above deformities is Rhinoplasty. This means Rhinoplasty is a tailor-made operation performed to correct according to the requirements of that deformity.
The most important factor in executing Rhinoplasty is the perception of the deformity by both the client and the surgeon. This means that the misshapenness perceived by the client/patient and the surgeon should match. Otherwise, there is no point in discussing the outcome of the procedure.

Then, who will perform Rhinoplasty? Either a plastic surgeon or an ENT surgeon. Both are performing this operation all over the world, but everybody will agree that an ENT surgeon will be well-versed with the functional aspects of the nose, while a plastic surgeon is more familiar with the aesthetic aspects of the nose. However, both are essential in Rhinoplasty. Dear friend, there are few people trained in both ENT and plastic surgery in India. I am one of them who has been performing and involved in Rhinoplasty for the past 15 years.

Regarding the results of Rhinoplasty, I can assure you of gradual improvement of the client’s nose, as one assumes standing on a stepladder. So, as a client, when you visit the surgeon, you should always inquire about a few important aspects such as experience, their own series of case results, and both cosmetic and functional aspects of the nose.

Try to find a surgeon preferably trained in both ENT and plastic surgery, with experience performing surgery on noses of your ethnic origin, and documented results of surgeries performed by them.

Thank you,
Venkata Ramana
