What is rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty helps to harmonize the nose

Rhinoplasty or nose job is a plastic operation on nose intended to harmonize a shape and size of the nose according to the face harmony norms. It is also carried out to correct breath impairment as well as to reconstruct facial damages resulted from trauma, cancer removal or congenital defect.


Types of rhinoplasty

There are three groups of rhinoplasty surgeries:

  • Septoplasty or functional rhinoplasty
  • Aesthetic or cosmetic rhinoplasty
  • Ethnic rhinoplasty

Functional rhinoplasty

Also known as septoplasty, it corrects breathing difficulties caused by congenital defects or physical trauma. It is also used for reconstruction of facial structures damaged as a result of accident or cancer removal. Functional rhinoplasty includes correction of deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, removal of nasal polyps and treatment of nasal fractures and is usually performed by otolaryngologist. Depending on severity of the problem, implantation of donor bone or cartilage may be needed.

Aesthetic rhinoplasty

The goal of cosmetic rhinoplasty is to improve appearance of the nose by changing its shape or size. Prior to the procedure a rhinoplasty surgeon evaluates individual features of the patient’s facial structure and discusses the further changes focusing on preserving and enhancing uniqueness of the face. Cosmetic rhinoplasty surgeries involve correction of the radix, straightening of the shifted or crooked nose, reduction of its tip, width, nostrils, improvement of nasolabial angle and projection. Some cases may require revision rhinoplasty.

Ethnic rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty suggests all types of nose job provided to patients of particular ethnics. Though each face is unique, each ethnicity has its typical features. The aim of ethnic rhinoplasty is to enhance appearance of the patient’s nose while preserving his or her ethnic features. This mainly refers to patients of Asian, African, Middle East and Hispanic origin. Rhinoplasty surgery for these patients differs from this of Caucasian patients and requires specific methods and skills of rhinoplasty specialist.

Both functional and cosmetic and ethnic rhinoplasty can be open or closed. During open (or external) rhinoplasty a plastic surgeon makes an incision on the outside part of the nose - columella, while during closed rhinoplasty (also called endonasal) an incision is made inside the nose. When considering open vs closed rhinoplasty it is obvious that each technique has its advantages and disadvantages. Closed rhinoplasty leaves no visible scars, lasts shorter and causes less postoperative swelling of the tip. Open rhinoplasty is preferred in case of complex deformities of the nose because it provides direct exposure and better visualization of nasal structures. The decision on which technique to use is left to the rhinoplasty specialist.

How much does rhinoplasty cost

The cost of rhinoplasty depends on:

  • fee of the clinic;
  • operated area;
  • country;
  • specialist who carries out the procedure;
  • type of anaesthesia etc..

Cost of rhinoplasty in different countries:

Contraindications for rhinoplasty

Nose structureThe only specific contraindication for rhinoplasty is age of the patient - it cannot be provided to patients under 18, because growth of his or her face is not finished yet and can affect the final result of the procedure. The only exception is when the surgery is provided for medical reasons. Patients with blood clotting disorders belong to risk group and plastic surgeon can advise against rhinoplasty. Prior to the surgery the patient undergoes medical examination which will confirm that his or her physical condition enables performing of rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty procedure step-by-step


Step 1 - Anaesthesia


At the first step of rhinoplasty the patient receives anaesthesia which can be local or general. The decision on which type of anaesthesia to use is made by anesthesiologist.


Steps 2 and 3 - Incision and Reshaping


Then the rhinoplasty surgeon makes incisions inside or outside the nose (depending on rhinoplasty type - open or closed) and starts reshaping. It may include reduction of cartilage or bone, straightening of deviated septum, implantation of grafts etc.


Step 4 - Closing of incision


When the nose is reshaped the surgeon rearranges and models the skin and makes stitches to close the incisions. Sometimes a splint on the nose and cotton packs inside the nostrils can be used to support the new shape.

Rhinoplasty recovery

Nose job before and afterNormally, the procedure lasts 1-2 hours and does not require in-hospital stay. Severe cases involve significant changes of nasal structures and last longer with following 1-2 days of stay in the inpatient department. After the procedure the patient is monitored for several hours in the ward until he or she is ready for discharge. It is important to keep the head elevated to avoid immense swelling or bruising. One week after the surgery the patient can return to work avoiding physical activities during 4-6 weeks as well as sun exposure which can cause permanent skin discoloration. The nose will have its final shape and size in up to 6 months when all healing processes are finished and the patient can compare the results of rhinoplasty before and after.

Potential rhinoplasty complications include:


  • swelling
  • headache
  • nose bleeding
  • anaesthesia complications
  • allergy
  • scars
  • numbing, etc.

The patient was treated of brain cancer

Appealed to Bukimed after her husband refused a doctor in Israel. He has a relapse of the brain tumor. Very quickly and clearly the staff picked up another doctor, a clinic in Germany. Proposed options to choose from. Everything is very clear and professional very quickly. I want to say a big thank you to Ekaterina Kochergan and Maria and Alexandra from the international office of the Solingen clinic. After different experience of treatment in Israel, communication and work with these people gave pleasure. Thank you for being and continue in the same spirit !.

I wanted to share my experience of the survey in Germany, if more precisely, at the Solingen Clinic.
The wife has transferred 2 operations on a stomach, resection on B-II after have altered on B-I. We continued to accompany ourselves for a long time, because doctors did not want to take us for a walk or let us circle. We go around a lot of clinics in Kiev and did not find doctors who were ready to deal with the condition of the body, diagnose and offer a treatment regimen.
After much thought, they decided to apply through the Bookimed site. Manager Ekaterina helped to select a clinic and doctors, with specialization applied to our case. We were offered a personal system of body examination (for gastroenterology). In the Solingen clinic, an international office in the person of Marina and Alexandra, provided the necessary assistance in negotiations with doctors and helped resolve all issues that we had.
We expected that we would come, and everything would revolve around us (to examine, do something, advise, treat). But medicine in Germany is a little different, it needed to be ready and we had to learn it on the go. We were listened to, the professor on the basis of ours appointed a survey, tests, consultations of other doctors and what he considered necessary for our diagnosis. Frankly, with such thoroughness and so meticulously (in the good sense of the word) we were never examined. During the examination, doctors excluded anomalies that could form in the body (tumors, improperly performed operations, a violation of the body's physiology, adhesions). After the examination, medical treatment was started. Preparations are selected by adding or removing one tablet and controlling the condition of the body.
Separately I want to note the care of medical personnel, from nurses to doctors, comfort and warmth - all for the patient.
After the examination in Germany, the international office, translated the documents for Ukrainian doctors and provided survey protocols, both in German and in Russian, CD-ROMs with the results of the surveys.
To sum up, I will say: if you want to examine the body and understand what to do next, I recommend Germany and the Solingen clinic. In the person of the medical staff of the clinic and employees of the international office you will find - sensitivity, understanding and desire to help. Doctors treat each patient equally well and at the highest professional level, every professional and in his place.
We have a positive impression of Germany and the Solingen clinic, German doctors and everyone who helped us and actively participated in solving various issues. I also recommend finding time and looking at Germany itself - it's very interesting and allows you to get an easier examination and treatment.
We consider that the trip costed those forces, money and the result that we received.

My name is Elena. I applied to this site because my husband needed an urgent ablation operation on the heart. Naturally, in today's Internet space, a million proposals are lightning-fast ... But in a situation where you do not have time for a long and detailed correspondence with a particular clinic, Bookimed in my situation played a very positive role. At the same time I want to express special gratitude and gratitude to the coordinating physician Bogdan Klimenko. His attentive attitude and careful participation in solving our problem played a decisive role in the choice of doctor and clinic. Thank you very much, Bogdan and all who helped us!

The patient was treated of breast cancer

Good afternoon everyone! The company bukimed very much helped in solving the terrible misfortune that happened in my family - this is cancer, namely the consultant Koval Ivan, gave hope for the recovery of my aunt. A couple of words about how the bukimed advised us with the hospital: we filed an application with a specific problem, and on the same day we received a call from the consultant Ivan, exactly one day we were offered three hospital options in Europe with a full description of the doctors and the cost of treatment. A week later we were already in Germany at a reception with Professor Dr. Hensch, the consultation was held at a very high level. Now my aunt is being treated and I'm sure that the treatment will be successful.)) I think the aunt will tell in more detail after full recovery. Personally from myself and from the weight of my family, I want to say HUGE thanks to the company Bukimed and Ivan for the quality work.

The patient was treated of viral hepatitis

After a blood transfusion in Kherson, I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. The examination showed a viral load of 88,000, a severity in the liver appeared. When the doctor in the infectious hospital explained to me the prospects - I was horrified. Effective antiviral drugs for hepatitis in Ukraine are not registered, and ordering in Europe is very long and expensive. A familiar doctor advised to be treated in India - these drugs cost several times cheaper, as well as a comprehensive examination. Appealed to the clinic Manipal - for everything paid less than 2000 dollars, bought there heptcinate (Indian version of sophosbuvira, which is not in Ukraine). The liver does not hurt anymore, I wait for the results of the tests.

The patient was treated of

I had a diagnosis Hemophthal urgently needed surgery Vitrektomiya.Tak as we do not do such an operation in the country I went to Bukamed for help. I quickly worked for me Bukimed, my coordinator was Ivan Koval. In a very short time I received all interesting information and the program of my treatment. I am very lucky with the coordinator, he is a professional, friendly, diligent and responsible doctor. I came to the Fortes Clinic in New Delhi, India. At the Fortes clinic I did not like right away.
Translators are not serious, the medical staff seemed to me not very responsible, the legislation was changed, the coordination in the clinic was simply terrible. After the examination, I was refused an operation on a tourist visa, I needed a medical visa and the visa needed was 15 days and large money as doctors said Fortes, I was very nervous, all this time my coordinator was on call, he called me every 10 minutes. asked how things were, how he felt, talked with the medical staff of the clinic, he also worried very much for everything. Ivan Koval same day found for me another clinic in Bangalore and Dr. Priyu who took me for a night from Delhi to Bangalore. If I had one reliable, diligent my Coordinator doctor, then there were two kindly sympathetic doctors Priya too very much done for me, he found for me their most good colleagues. For which he thank you so much !!! In Bangalore, I was warmly greeted by the staff of the Manipal hospital and taken to Manipal where good, responsive, lovely and wonderful medical personnel of the hospital were waiting for me. They very carefully examined me and my eye, they set the day for the operation. On the day of the operation, I had no doubt that my operation would pass perfectly differently, otherwise my surgical doctors were the most experienced, responsible, sensitive and highly qualified world-class doctors. very easily and successfully, I almost did not feel pain after the operation.
I was happy when the next day the operations cleaned the eye patch to me, my eyes began to see as before)) This was my second birth.
for joy, even tears of happiness slipped.
My doctors were Dr. Ajanta Chakravarty and Dr. Nitin S. Shetty.
I express my heartfelt gratitude to my beloved doctors and to all Manipal staff for the impeccable and noble work that is so important to people. I was very pleased to feel a great deal of attention from the staff and doctors, sympathy and ponemanie! Low bow to you for the great, competent forces in saving our lives!

I was already going to call you with words of great gratitude for the help rendered in our complicated business. Roma had already been operated on. He is as happy as ever. The hospital can not understand what he rejoices! The clinic is wonderful. You can recommend it with a calm heart. They do everything! All doctors with American and British diplomas. The format of the hospital is absolutely European. And the prices are funny! Single room costs $ 100. In Berlin we paid 2000 € per day. The pacemaker Metatronic USA costs $ 500. In Russia there are 160000₽. So the conclusions are self-evident. I'll recommend it to my friends! I want to wish you all the best and thank you again for your help !!

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

Looking back on the past life, I can say that I did not go to doctors regularly. I thought this: the disease itself came, she herself will leave. Only sometimes I went on an ECG, because at the age of twelve I suffered myocarditis. And since I worked very hard for many years, I can say that I worked as a "slave on galleys," I always stopped near the pharmacy and measured the pressure. My wife and I have a very happy family life and I was worried that one day a love relationship could be misfired. For this reason, I underwent routine prophylactic examinations of the prostate.

In 2001 I retired. At the insistence of my wife, I went to the examination. Frequent urination, which worried me a bit, I explained by the supercooling of the bladder. In the course of the survey, among others, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was determined. In December 2001, it was: 3.1 μg / l. I was told that there was nothing to worry about. But I did not relax and (together with my wife!) With some skepticism found on the Internet a lot of information regarding the prostate and began to regularly (on a fee basis) determine my PSA.

After a year, he was 4.2. After another 8 months, 5.0 μg / l. Then he froze for a while. In 2005, he again crawled up from 5.5, bypassing 7.0, and amounted to 10.1 mkg / l in December 2005. At the end of January I had to do a biopsy. Out of 12 samples, tissues 2 were positive. For me it was not a surprise, but, as they say, hope dies last. The biopsy did not seem to me painful, although somewhat unpleasant. As it seems to me, it is not necessary to be afraid of it. Already in mid-January, I was internally prepared for a serious test called "prostate carcinoma". At the same time, my wife learned about the event held by the self-help group on the topic "Prostate". At this event, the professor, MD, A. Böhle should make a report on the high degree of risk in the prostate and about brachytherapy, which I already knew from the Internet. In this event my wife and I took part. Professor A. Böhle answered our questions with exhaustive answers. I felt psychologically well prepared to hear the "fatal news" from the results of a biopsy. Our solution, i.e. not mine, but the decision taken by my wife and myself, in case of passing a serious test, was taken in advance.

To conduct brachytherapy by Professor Böhle at the HELIOS hospital named after Agnes Karl in Bad Schwartau, I was assigned the day of the operation in May 2006. In 14 days the wedding of our youngest daughter was due. I so wanted to be in shape again to this day. Preliminary examinations that were usual for such a case were completed. It was found out that I also have an enlarged prostate, the so-called benign prostatic hyperplasia, and it needs to be reduced (with the help of medications) before the operation.

Brachytherapy went according to plan: I was implanted 81 micro-source of radioactive radiation (the so-called "Seeds"). After 2 days I was at home, finished the remaining work in the garden and started preparing for the wedding together with my wife. As expected, the wedding sang and danced until the morning. I well endured this holiday, although I had to put up with side effects (frequent urge to urinate and frequent urination). Over time, erectile dysfunction arose. To eliminate it, I take tablets, so-called, PD 5- inhibitors.

Almost 3 years have passed since the brachytherapy. I can say that I feel well, there was no recurrence of cancer. From the perspective of today, I consider brachytherapy to be one of the best and most sparing methods of treating prostate carcinoma. However, I recommend that every man undergo preventive examinations, and in addition to them at regular intervals determine the value of PSA. It, although it is not a tumor marker, but it should be considered as a very important medical parameter. When complaints about the condition of the bladder and prostate should be addressed in time to the urologist. I confess, I, perhaps, long delayed. Perhaps I would have created more favorable medical conditions for brachytherapy, for example, fewer micro sources of "Seeds". But, as they say, to know where to fall, there would straws and podstelil. A spouse or spouse should also be publicly informed about changes in the health sphere that have a negative impact or can affect the sexual life. In my opinion, this will have a positive impact on the strengthening of mutual trust and mutual consent. However, medical measures aimed at treating the disease as such, such as cancer, must always be in the center of attention.

In 2013, I underwent endoprosthetics of the hip joint. The operation was done in Helios Endoklinik Hamburg, where they are engaged in the surgery of large joints. It is one of the best orthopedic clinics in Germany, and foreigners are accepted here.

When choosing a clinic, I was guided by three criteria.

First. The hospital should be specialized, and not multidisciplinary: when doctors deal with only one disease, their achievements are much higher than those of doctors whose practice is wide enough.

Second. It should be a large clinic that has been operating for a long time and has a good reputation.

Third. The hospital must be a university to carry out scientific work.

The endo clinic meets all of the above criteria: it is a large specialized university hospital, which has been operating for more than 20 years, is widely known in medical circles and has an impeccable reputation.

I learned about it on the Internet forum, where I was given a link to several videos with reviews. When I looked them over, the fear of the operation let me go. I saw quiet, smiling people on crutches and more and more filled with confidence that I will be all right. And they talked about prosthetics of the knee and hip joints as if talking about visiting a cosmetologist. In addition, they unanimously spoke about the need for rehabilitation after surgery (which in Russia, if carried out, then in a very truncated form), and the Russian-speaking osteopath, which this rehabilitation exercises.

Of course, I realized that the videos with reviews serve purely advertising purposes, but one thing is enthusiastic texts, which often belong to the pen of a PR manager or website editor, and quite another - the live stories of people with whom , as it turned out, can be contacted by phone or email.
When I arrived in Hamburg, reality did not disappoint me at all. On the contrary - from all it followed, that this clinic of a very high level. Medical technology is more modern than the one I had to deal with, research is being carried out quickly, the staff is acting in a coordinated manner. And the endless questionnaire for the selection of anesthesia clearly said that the individual characteristics of the patient are taken into account here as much as possible.

At our municipal hospitals the clinic is completely different. Moreover, they are even somehow strange to compare: they are in too different qualitative categories. If you make any analogies, then the Endo Clinic resembles European sanatoriums in thermal waters - only the staff, perhaps, is more friendly. A large modern building with stylish interiors, spacious rooms for one or two (of course, with a bathroom), everyone has their own TV with headphones. And, of course, a small refrigerator. For the convenience and safety of patients, the clinic provides everything to the last detail.

For example, a multifunctional bed. It consists of three parts and is easily transformed in the necessary way - you just have to press the control button. Immediately, next to, a small table on the hinged mount.

In the bathroom there are all the devices for hygienic procedures after the operation. The tile in the bathroom is not slippery (which is very important for a person on crutches), the floor in the ward is the same. And everywhere is incredibly clean! At the entrance to the ward there is a small device for disinfecting the hands of doctors and nurses. Wet cleaning - every day. After lunch, a person comes into the room, who is wondering if there are any needs outside the clinic's walls (meaning fresh press, fruit or small services). In a word, comfort and security are at the heart of this. If you evaluate the quality of prosthetics, then it says respectful reviews of Russian surgeons who saw my X-ray after surgery.

More importantly, the clinic has its own know-how, which relates to the implantation of the prosthesis into the joint. You do not think about it in advance, but when you plunge into the topic and learn about possible complications, you understand how important it is to exclude the possibility of infections.
Summing up, I will say that the video reviews were not deceived, the choice was correct, and the result corresponds to expectations.

I was tormented by severe pain during movement or with a load on the hips, as a result of which I was restricted in movements, and in Russia the treatment consisted only in the use of strong analgesics. Physiotherapeutic treatment was not received. Almost could not move. I heard about the good quality of the German clinics, and above all that patients are quickly recovering. In Russia it is believed that after the installation of the hip joint prosthesis only after 6 months you can move normally, but here in a few weeks after the operation I was able to walk again. I also thought to be treated in Israel. There the price structure is similar to German, but there is no system of rehabilitation centers and rehabilitation therapy in Germany. In my search, I came across a private clinic HELIOS-ENDO (Helios, clinic of endoprosthetics). I was convinced not only by the reputation of the clinic itself, but also by the excellent responses of Russian patients who were treated in it. My expectations were that I would be able to walk again without pain after the treatment in Helios. And, despite the fact that the operation was done less than two weeks ago, my condition improved significantly. I am very pleased with the result. I was operated on by Professor Gerke, and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude. He not only perfectly operated on me, but despite the intense employment, he gave me a lot of his time. In the clinic I felt myself in safe hands.

The patient underwent hip replacement

Hello! My name is Larissa, I'm from the city of Orenburg and led me here such a complicated disease as coxarthrosis of the hip joint. My disease I have a very long time, I was born with a congenital hip dislocation, which was cured during the first three years of my life. Then we experienced an accident with the family and I had a fracture of the right hip. I was treated for a long time, there was skeletal traction, then gypsum, for treatment it took two years, while Elizarov GA. I did not put the apparatus Elizarov. It was 35 years ago and in life I somehow managed to run and learn, get married, have children, grow them. And so it did not stop me. Three years ago, I felt a great pain, which prevented me from walking or sleeping and constantly distracted from normal life. When I underwent a complete examination and passed all the tests, I was told that the only way out is an operation. And as you want to go the rest of life in "their" feet, without any complications and infections and have a guarantee that our surgeons I could not give (even if they do not take offense), I chose the clinic. On the Internet, I found many clinics. Several clinics in Israel and Germany offered to help me, but for some reason I stopped at the Helios clinic in the city of Hamburg. I really instilled confidence in Professor Thorsten Gehrke, who operated on many Russian patients who can walk normally, cycling, driving and continue to move well. Of great importance is that it is in this clinic that there is a Russian-speaking physiotherapist Sergei Karsten, who has knowledge of all types of rehabilitation. He has developed his own tactics of massage and physical education. He knows how to properly develop joints, so that the body does not stagnate and does not sit too long and there was a full volume of movements.

The patient was treated of pancreatic cancer

You can talk about treatment after receiving the results, a professor who examined me and doctors cause trust. I can recommend a clinic. Excellent organization of examination and treatment, there are blunders, but there are not many of them. Language barriers should be taken into account. Eugene...
