Rhinoplasty commonly referred to as “Nose Surgery or Nose Reshaping or Nose Job”, is a surgery that changes shape of the nose and provides facial appearance that you desire. Rhinoplasty nose surgery may sometimes be performed to improve breathing difficulties, correct a birth defect, or repair facial deformities due to injury. Rhinoplasty has a dramatic effect on facial beauty for lifetime.

Rhinoplasty is generally done as an outpatient procedure, that is, no need for overnight stay. This type of nose surgery can be performed usually under general or local anesthesia. General anesthesia makes you go into a deep sleep throughout the operation. On the other hand, you will be sedated and your nose will be numbed with local anesthesia. Anesthesia makes you relax and unable to feel the pain. During the surgery procedure, the surgeon makes cuts within the nostrils. In challenging cases, the surgeon may also make cuts across the base of the nose. Then, the surgeon reshapes the inner bone and cartilage to gain an attractive and charming look.



Following rhinoplasty surgery, most patients experience mild to moderate discomfort which can be easily managed with medications. At least one week after rhinoplasty surgery, splints and gauze packing should be used to protect the nasal bones and cartilage to support the nose as it begins to heal. Besides, patients should avoid strenuous activity like jogging or swimming for 2-3 weeks and avoid wearing glasses for 4-5 weeks after rhinoplasty surgery. Importantly, the initial recovery period can be somewhat awkward at work as well as in social settings on account of potential bruising under the eyes and the use of a splint.

In India, the costs of rhinoplasty surgery will be around 60,000 to 1, 20,000 Indian Rupees. Cost of the surgery is based upon several factors such as the nature of the procedure, location, and fees of the surgeon and clinic.


The nose is complex structure composed of delicate cartilage and bone. Even a small change in one part of the structure influences the rest of the nose; ergo, rhinoplasty nose surgery requires expertise to obtain natural and functional outcomes. Dr. Jagdish Sakhiya, adroit at dealing with challenging cases of rhinoplasty with more than 20 years of experience, assures exceptional cosmetic improvement.
