“Nose augmentation and reshaping”
Your nose is the central element of your face, and if you are unhappy with its appearance, it could easily be debilitating to your everyday confidence and vitality. Your appearance — especially that of your nose — is not a trivial matter, and you should not let anything prevent you from looking and feeling your best whatever the feature you have which concerns you.
Fortunately, you don’t have to continue to endure the problems that currently affect the look of your nose because effective options exist to change any unwanted features. A rhinoplasty, commonly known as a ‘nose job,’ can significantly alter the shape, size or profile of the nose. The surgery can improve the appearance of the nose and also the performance of the nose, as well, clearing the nasal passageways and further opening the airway.

A rhinoplasty can be one of the most effective and transforming cosmetic procedures you can have. First and foremost, the procedure actively reshapes the underlying structures which give the nose its outward appearance and removes or alters unwanted aspects of these structures, ensuring that your nose looks its best and the way you want it to. Additionally, once you have the full benefits of your rhinoplasty, your nose will better complement all of your other facial features, revealing your vision of yourself and expressing the real you.
What does a rhinoplasty treat?
A rhinoplasty is a versatile procedure which can improve many concerns that adversely affect the appearance of the nose that can cause self-consciousness and dissatisfaction.
Some of the problems which a rhinoplasty can treat include:
A high dorsal hump
A disproportionate nose
A crooked nose
A large or droopy nose tip
A flat nasal bridge
Your rhinoplasty procedure can improve a single or multiple concerns and provide far-reaching results. This is because the surgery not only improves the look of the nose itself but also creates greater balance throughout the entire facial area. The new nose shape and profile that the procedure produces will compliment and enhance your other features, as well, providing you with a look that is different from your original appearance in all the ways that you want it to be but which is also uniquely you.
How can my rhinoplasty be tailored for my needs?
Rhinoplasty is a versatile procedure with many variants. To produce ideal results for each patient, Dr Anh can perform specialised surgeries called augmentation rhinoplasties which give patients additional options to achieve their goals.
Augmentation rhinoplasties can build up the nose using fillers, grafts or nasal implants to help patients realise the unique look they hope to accomplish through surgery.
These techniques primarily enhance the shape of the nose, but it can also alter the nose’s profile by adding implants or bone grafts to produce a stable and long-lasting result.
Implants and Grafts
Implants also offer patients great flexibility. They come in different shapes and sizes and can be shaped to suit each individual nose. Alternatively, augmentation can be achieved using rib grafts, cartilage from the ear and or cartilage from the nasal septum. In some instances, a combination of implant and cartilage can be used to increase the side profile of the nose and the tip.
Each type of augmentation has its own advantages and drawbacks to consider.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty with Fillers
Using fillers to reshape the nose is known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty. A range of fillers can be used to achieve a patients desire results, and these fillers include hyaluronic acid gels which last 9 – 18 months or calcium hydroxyapatite which may last up to two to three years. Fillers, when introduced by a skilled and experienced Specialist Plastic Surgeon like Dr Anh, also provide tremendous versatility and allow patients who wish to improve their nose without surgery a viable and effective option.
What can I expect during my rhinoplasty procedure?
Depending on your needs, Dr Anh may recommend either an open or closed rhinoplasty; these are the two primary variants of a rhinoplasty procedure. An open rhinoplasty will utilise an incision along the columella — the cartilage between your nostrils at the base of your nose — which will give Dr Anh more access to the internal structures of the nose, making finer adjustments of these elements possible during surgery.
A closed rhinoplasty will not utilise this incision and will minimise scarring and swelling and also shorten your time in surgery. While a closed rhinoplasty is somewhat less versatile than an open rhinoplasty, this technique can still achieve positive results for clients who do not have concerns with the internal structures of the nose or nose tip.
Some rhinoplasty procedures are performed as day surgery so patients can return home the same day, usually a few hours after surgery, when they are alert, eating and drinking, when they are comfortably mobile and when pain and any nausea are well-controlled.
