What is rhinoplasty treatment?
This surgical procedure corrects deviations, congenital malformations and other conditions of the nose, whether innate or acquired throughout life. It is one of the most frequently performed procedures in plastic surgery.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed under local or general anaesthesia. The skin that covers the support of the nose, composed of bone and cartilage, is separated and then moulded to give the nose the desired shape.
Generally, this surgery lasts between 1 or 2 hours maximum and is performed in the operating theatre of the Clínica ICA. If you are interested in this type of surgical procedure you should consider that there are two types of rhinoplasty:
- Open rhinoplasty: this surgery is performed in the middle area of the nose to gain better access to the bones and cartilage.
- Closed rhinoplasty: unlike open rhinoplasty, closed rhinoplasty is performed on the nose through the inside of the nostrils, without making any type of incision that may leave scars.
How does rhinoplasty work?
To determine whether a person can undergo rhinoplasty, they must make an appointment with our specialists at Clínica ICA, who, through a physical examination and a CT scan of the nose and paranasal sinuses, will determine the best solution to the problem.
Surgery is usually quick and practical, and will allow you to achieve great aesthetic results. Once the operation is finished, the patient can be discharged the same day, between two and five hours after surgery.
With this type of intervention, the patient will be able to obtain a more defined nose, reduce or increase its size, mould their figure, narrow the nostrils or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
In order to have a quick recovery and avoid problems or serious consequences, it is advisable to follow the instructions given by the specialist on the day of your first consultation.
What is rhinoplasty for?
Rhinoplasty can have two objectives: one functional and the other aesthetic, depending on the cause for which the patient comes for consultation.

Aesthetics, on the other hand, is inclined towards the modification of the bony and cartilaginous structures of the nose with the aim of achieving a new shape of this part of the face that improves facial harmony.
