Rhinoplasty: A safe and effective procedure to achieve your desired nose

Rhinoplasty in Ibiza is a type of intervention that is completely the order of the day. It is often demanded by men and women who aim to modify the size or shape of their nose. It can be done for aesthetics or to correct certain respiratory problems.

In the following guide we tell you all about what a rhinoplasty is, what the intervention consists of and give answers to all the questions you may have.

What is rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to modify the shape or size of the nose.

There are people who perform this type of surgery for aesthetic reasons, to reduce the size of their nose or to give it a desired shape, because they do not like theirs.

Of course, in other cases it can be performed for medical reasons. For example, to correct respiratory problems or congenital deformities. Both cases and situations are completely on the agenda.

For this, rhinoplasty is performed, where the surgeon shapes the nose through the removal or repositioning of bone and cartilage, and may also use tissue grafts to achieve the desired shape.

The duration depends on each specific operation. It is not considered a long procedure, so the patient can achieve the desired results in a short time.

How it is done

This type of cosmetic surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. Although there are specific cases that can be done under local anesthesia and sedation. It depends on the patient and each specific case.

During the intervention, what the surgeon does is to cut and shape the nasal bones and cartilage to achieve the desired shape of the nose. Incisions may also be made at the base of the nostrils.

Shaping may require grafting of the patient’s own tissues, such as cartilage or bone. Synthetic materials may also be used, although this is less common.



After undergoing rhinoplasty, it is normal for the patient to experience swelling and even bruising in the area for days or weeks. The most sensitive people may see this time lengthen, but eventually passes.

For pain, painkillers are usually prescribed. But you can also follow other recommendations to relieve the pain. For example, applying cold compresses to the nose area can help reduce swelling.

It is also advisable to follow the doctor’s instructions to care for the wound and change the bandages. This will prevent the wound from becoming infected and help you recover more quickly.

Getting a good night’s sleep will also help you recover faster. So try to get as much rest as you can. It is even advisable to use a special pillow to sleep on your side to avoid putting pressure on your nose. If you prefer not to use this pillow, try to always sleep on your back to avoid rubbing your nose against the pillow.

Of course, you should avoid doing any type of exercise or activities that involve exertion for a while. It is something you should do in a very moderate way, avoiding of course any contact or dangerous sport.

For the recovery to be as effective and fast as possible, it is advisable to follow the surgeon’s instructions. Always attend scheduled postoperative consultations with the surgeon to ensure that the recovery is progressing properly and follow your surgeon’s instructions.

As for the time needed to return to normal activity, it may vary depending on the health condition of each person. It may be days or weeks.


When to undergo rhinoplasty

Each person has his or her own reasons for undergoing this type of intervention. Some people do it because they have a strong complex about their nose, while for others it is recommended for medical reasons.

In any case, if you do not breathe well or if on the contrary you want to give a more flattering shape to your nose, it is important that before anything else you consult a surgeon, to tell you if it is possible to perform the intervention.

From what age can it be considered

Nose surgery is the most requested cosmetic surgery procedure by teenagers. However, it is recommended to be performed at the time when the nose has completed 90% of its growth. This occurs differently in boys and girls, at 16 and 14 years of age respectively.

In any case, it is important to listen to the surgeon’s opinion beforehand.
