Rhinoplasty Surgery in Hyderabad

A balanced nose with perfect shape is the centrepiece of the face and can enhance both the men’s and women’s overall appearance and confidence. Your nose is a thing of beauty that adds to the proportion to the face. However, at times one may not have a perfectly shaped nose or may have a medical condition that leads to breathing problems. If you think that your nose needs any correction, then it is time to seek Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery in Hyderabad.

Commonly known as “nose job”, Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping or reconstructing the nose. This may be done for cosmetic reasons to change the appearance of the nose or in medical instances to correct breathing problems caused by structural issues with the nose.

Most often, rhinoplasty is sought for:

  • Aesthetic reasons: Where the person is unhappy with the size or shape of their nose –
    • Nose appears too large for the face
    • Nasal bridge is depressed
    • Bump on the nasal bridge when viewed in profile
    • Nose seems too wide when viewed from the front
    • Nasal tip droops or plunges
    • Tip is thickened or enlarged
    • Nostrils are excessively flared
    • Nose is off-centre or crooked
  • Functional reasons: Where the person may have difficulty breathing due to structural malformations of the nose such as deviated septum and needs correction.
  • Trauma: Where the person may have suffered an injury to the nose resulting in deformity.

Nose Surgery would be ideal for you if you fall into any of these categories:

  • Recommended for any age group, but in younger patients it is advisable to to wait until the facial growth is complete – girls 15-16 yrs and boys 17-18 yrs of age
  • In general good health
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure

How is Rhinoplasty done at Ambrosia Clinic in Hyderabad?

We follow our tested protocol for the procedure:


We always believe that the pre-procedure consultation is a critical part of any treatment. It not only allows for all questions and doubts to be addressed by Dr. Priti Shukla, one of the best Rhinoplasty surgeons in Hyderabad, but also allows for planning the way ahead. You may have expectations beyond the realms of reality, the consultation will help align them to what is the best for your body. Also all previous medical history is taken into account and costs etc may be discussed openly.


Once you have decided to undergo the Rhinoplasty in Hyderabad at Ambrosia, you will be evaluated for your fitness for anaesthesia and surgery by Dr Priti or if necessary by the anaesthesiologist. Your diagnostic test reports will be studied and you will be examined by taking measurements and clinical photographs for your medical record.

You will sign the consent forms and will be given detailed preoperative instructions in writing.


Before taking you inside the operation room, parts to be sculpted will be marked to shape them to the desired size.

After Surgery

After surgery, there will be gauze padding on the operated part. You can drink water after 4 hours and have some snacks afterwards. You can walk and have normal dinner on the same evening.


You will be advised to rest and avoid physical activity until the incisions have healed. You will need some assistance initially. The recovery period may vary depending on the extent of the procedure, but for the first few days to up to a week or more after the surgery one may expect some swelling and bruising and general discomfort. The surgeon will put a splint on the nose to keep it in place as well as protect it.

About the Rhinoplasty Surgery at Ambrosia Clinic in Hyderabad

During your nose job procedure, your rhinoplasty surgeon will make incisions in the nostrils or in the skin between the nostrils, depending on the changes required. To give it the desired shape or repair deformities, the cartilage, bone or tissues may be removed or sized accordingly. The skin flap is then redraped over the new structure before the incisions are closed.

Depending on the patient’s preference, the surgery may be performed under general anaesthesia or local sedation. This choice may also depend on the complexity of the procedure and it then becomes the surgeon’s prerogative.

Will there be visible scars on my nose after my rhinoplasty surgery?
Rhinoplasty surgery can be done through cuts inside the nose (closed rhinoplasty surgery). Sometimes cuts are made outside but in such places where the scar is not visible. You can discuss that in person during the pre-procedural consultation with Dr. Priti at Ambrosia Clinic, Hyderabad.
How is the nose surgery done?

Usually, through the small hidden incision, work is done on the cartilage and bone that form the framework of your nose. The skin and soft tissues are then redraped over this new framework.
The different techniques for different purposes:
1. For making the upper nose narrow: In fracturing of nasal bones, pushing them inwards.
2. For removing the hump on the nose: Excess bone/cartilage is shaved off.
3. For elevating the nose bridge: Silicone implant/ cartilage graft is placed on the nose bridge under the skin.
4. For flared nostrils and broad lower nose: Alar excision- small wedges of skin are removed to narrow the base of the nose or reduce the width of the nostrils.
5. For the bulky tip: The cartilages that make the tip are made smaller and shapely and fat is removed.
6. For tip shaping: Cartilage graft from the septum of the nose or ear is placed inside the tip.

What are the risks involved with rhinoplasty?
Fortunately, significant complications from rhinoplasty surgery are infrequent. Some of the potential complications include hematoma (an accumulation of blood under the skin that may require removal), infection and reactions to anaesthesia. Numbness of the skin following a nose surgery may occur but is usually temporary. Occasionally, if the surgical outcome needs further improvement, additional surgery may be necessary.
How much does rhinoplasty surgery cost in Hyderabad?
The cost of nose surgery/ rhinoplasty surgery depends on how much alterations in the nose are required, on surgeons experience and skills and hospital facilities. A personal consultation is the best way for the surgeon to assess you and your nose and for you to assess the surgeon. Only then the cost can be best determined.
When can I get back to work after rhinoplasty surgery without it being noticed? What is the total recovery time for this procedure?
Just like after any other surgery or injury, there is swelling of the involved part (nose) after a rhinoplasty surgery. Additionally there is usually swelling of the eyelids. There can be bruises (black and blue patches) on the nose and lower eyelid. There is also splint and or tape and packing inside the nose. The pack comes off in a day or two and the splint in 5 days. At the end of one week the nose is still swollen but not very prominent, so people return to work and if there are still some bruises, they can easily hide it with a concealer and with makeup. It is very important to remember that every person heals at different rates.
How soon can I see the results of the surgery?
Results of rhinoplasty surgery are only partially appreciated by 1 to 2 weeks. In the case of tip modification, more than one month is required to barely notice the result. This is because tip skin is thick and takes longer to redrape over the newly shaped cartilage framework. Tip shape can be gradually appreciated over the next 3 to 6 months. In some cases, the tip has been seen to improve up to one year after surgery.
I had my nose surgery about two months ago, but my nose still looks big. Do I need another surgery?
Two months is too short a time to assess the result. A second nose surgery can be considered only if the changes are dissatisfactory even after six months and that too only if your surgeon is convinced that it can be further improved by second rhinoplasty surgery. You can always take a second opinion if needed. There is the limit to which a nose can be modified safely without disfiguring it, and extreme surgery can look artificial and incongruous.
I have a deviated septum and I also want to have my nose reshaped. Can both surgeries be done at the same time?

Both surgeries can be done simultaneously by a plastic surgeon.

Is there a risk of having difficulty breathing after my nose surgery?
No, but if you have any pre-existent nose block, then it may worsen after fracturing. Thorough nasal examination before doing a rhinoplasty surgery can help detect this problem and it can then be tackled at the time of surgery.
My nose is fine, but I have always wanted a nose like Aishwarya Rai. Is that possible with rhinoplasty surgery?
Each nose is unique. Unlike clay modelling or sculpting where things are in the artist’s hand, in the human body, there are many things beyond the control of a plastic surgeon like- individual tissue characteristics and healing quality. Plastic surgery improves your existing nose keeping it in harmony with the rest of the face and without making it look artificial. There is no guarantee of a certain look.
My nose is very big. I am quite sure I do not have any girlfriends because of that. This is making me depressed and I cannot concentrate on my studies. Can rhinoplasty surgery help me?
Your nose may be improved by plastic surgery, but it can not change your life. There is no guarantee that girls will start liking you after your nose is changed. You should have a stable mental condition and realistic expectations before opting for nose plastic surgery.
What other surgeries can be combined with nose surgery?

Other face surgeries like chin augmentation, fat injection, liposuction and any other body contouring surgery can be combined with a nose surgery.

Are silicone implants safe for elevating the nose?
Silicone implants are time tested and completely safe for your procedure.
What is the difference between implants and grafts from one’s body? Which is better?
There are three choices available for elevating the nasal bridge:
1. Implants (Silicone/medpor)
2. Bone from one’s body (hip/elbow)
3. Cartilage (nose/ear/rib)
There are advantages and limitations of each option. Nose cartilage is preferred in the USA and Europe. Among Oriental (China, Japan), African and Indian surgeons implants are very popular because the thick skin of the nose permits safe placement of implants.
