Rhinoplasty is simply nose surgery. It is generally used to change its shape or size, in order to harmonize it with the rest of the face. It is a rather delicate procedure that requires the services and competence of a highly skilled surgeon.

Generally, the results of a rhinoplasty must be natural. Indeed, it requires a thorough discussion between the surgeon and the patient, in which the former will explain to the latter the effects of the procedure, as well as ensuring that his objectives are realistic and aesthetically recommended.

The procedure

Rhinoplasty can be used to reduce the shape, size, width or height, shorten or straighten the nose in its cartilage and bone structures.

The procedure duration

The intervention can be performed in 1 or 2 hours.


This procedure can be performed both under general or local anesthesia. In any case, it is possible that the doctor recommends a short stay in the clinic, under supervision. This is generally the case in complex interventions.


Recovery after a rhinoplasty depends on the choice of anesthesia performed (general or local). In any case, the duration can range from 2 weeks to several months or 1 year.
