Rhinoplasty is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery interventions in the world. Due to the great impact that the nose has on beauty and facial expression, a good result after the intervention has a positive effect on both the patient’s health and aesthetics.

When planning nasal surgery, we must bear in mind that aesthetics goes hand in hand with function. In other words, a good cosmetic result that leads to a worsening of respiratory function is considered a poor overall result. For this reason, it is essential to put yourself in the hands of a specialist who knows how to treat both aspects.

What can we treat with nasal surgery?

  • The nasal size in relation to the face
  • The width of the nasal bridge
  • The profile of the nose, with humps or depressions on the back
  • The nasal tip fallen, globular, etc.
  • The lateral displacement of the nose


In the preoperative consultation, we will make an aesthetic assessment, taking photographs, and developing digital simulations in order to find the result that best suits the patient’s facial characteristics.

At the same time, we will explore the interior of the nose, in order to detect deviations of the nasal septum or increases in the size of the nasal turbinates, in order to correct them during the intervention and maintain or improve the patient’s nasal breathing.

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty

The conventional rhinoplasty technique uses the hammer, chisel and file to reshape the nasal bones, obtaining very satisfactory results. However, science is rapidly advancing and nasal cosmetic surgery has benefited greatly from these developments. One of the most important in recent years has been the appearance of ultrasonic rhinoplasty.



What is ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

It is an advanced technique for the treatment of the bone part of the intervention, which is carried out with an instrument called an ultrasonic scalpel. This instrument allows work on the nasal bones in a controlled manner under direct vision, allowing a finer action on the tissues.

What are the advantages of ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

By working more precisely, it prevents injuries to nearby structures, producing less post-surgical inflammation and reducing the risk of bruising under the eyes.

  • Greater fabric care
  • Fine and precise work
  • Reduces postoperative pain
  • better healing
  • Long-term stable results


The nasal packing that is placed at the end of the surgery is usually removed after 24 hours, if there is no contraindication. The protection splint and stitches are removed after about a week. We recommend keeping the wound clean and doing nasal washes with saline water, to avoid scabs. It is usually a well-tolerated operation and patients do not complain of pain, except for the normal discomfort after surgery.


Small episodes of bleeding may occur, usually in connection with nasal washes, when blowing the nose. In case of a significant nosebleed, you should go to the nearest health center emergency.

Regarding sick leave, it depends on the type of work that is performed: if it is a quiet activity, for example, office work, a week of rest may be enough, depending on the evolution. If, on the other hand, it is a job that requires physical effort, at least two weeks is recommended. Intense sports activity is not recommended before 3-4 weeks, although you can start with walks at an increasing pace to activate physical fitness. Sports where there is contact (football, basketball, martial arts, etc) are not recommended in any case, before 2 months, in general.

The definitive aesthetic results will begin to be seen at different times in each patient, depending on the type of skin and the speed of the inflammation process. There are people that can see their results at 2-3 months and others in which we have to wait more than 6 months.
