What is Nose Reconstruction (Total Nasal Surgery) ?

Males tend to have larger and wider noses than females. Also, if you look at a female nose from the side, the base often points slightly upwards while on males it tends to point more straight ahead or slightly downwards. Standard nose reconstruction surgery procedures are generally used to feminize a masculine nose. Noses with a slightly concave “scooped” bridge are thought by many to look particularly feminine.

The nose varies tremendously from individual to individual and, of course, may be quite masculine compared with being desirably female. If one has thin skin, a significant size nose reduction can generally be completed. If the skin is quite thick (as is often the case in males), the contour can still be markedly improved, but there may be a definite limitation to the size nose reduction.

Additional, nose contour changing alone greatly feminizes the basic nasal appearance. If there happens to be a breathing difficulty coexisting with an appearance deformity, these can often be improved markedly by the same surgery.

Nose Reconstruction Surgery

In most nasal surgery an incision is made inside the nostrils, through which the work will be done. The incision provides the surgeon with access to cartilage and bone which can be cut, trimmed and manipulated to reshape the nose and alter its external appearance.

A hump is removed by using a sawing instrument or a chisel and then bringing the nasal bones together to form a narrower bridge. To improve the angle between the bottom portion of the nose and upper lip, the nasal tip is elevated. This is accomplished by trimming the septum through the incisions in the nostrils. If a large hump is removed, the base of the nose is disproportionately wide. To narrow it, small skin wedges are removed and the nostrils are brought closer to the center.


Postoperative Recovery Nose Reconstruction

After surgery, pain that is easily controlled by medication usually will subside in a day or two.  If dressings have been applied, they will be replaced in a few days.  Sutures will be removed within a week of surgery.  Although the surgeon has made every effort to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible, they are the inevitable result of surgery.  Minimal swelling and discoloration of the breasts will disappear rapidly.

Healing process, some degree of firmness of the nose may occur for weeks or even months following surgery.

The decision on when to return to work and normal activities depends on how fast you heal and how you fee.  To permit proper healing, you should avoid over activity and refrain from overhead lifting.

A: I was not very satisfied with my natural appearance and always wanted to have a more exotic look.

Q: How did you choose the clinic?

A: Before picking a place, I did a lot of online research and also got my friends’s testimonials.  My friends are pretty familiar with the industry and so I gained a lot of insight from them.  They have the best doctors ranked, based on each type of surgery.

Q: How long did the pain last nose shaving ?

A: About a week after the surgery, I went back to get the stitches removed. The pain started to fade after 3 days, but swelling took about 2 weeks to go down.  It may took about a month to be fully recovered.

Q: Was it worth for surgery?

A: The surgery helped boost my confidence and I have got a lot of compliments saying how pretty my nose structure looks now.


Q: Hi there, I need to have a reduction rhinoplasty.  How much is that???

A:  If nose reduction, it is called Nose Shaving, Total Nasal Surgery or Nose Reconstruction Surgery.  It must be done under General Anesthesia.  You should be in Thailand 5 days after surgery.  Stitches will be removing on day 5 after surgery.  Swollen and bruise will be reduce within a month.  To be natural or fully recover, this is requiring 2-3 month after surgery.
