Plastika nosu (Rhinoplastika)

Nose job (Rhinoplasty)

Plastic surgery

Were you born with a nose that doesn’t seem to fit your face, or have you suffered an accident involving trauma to the nose? Whether it is too large, small, hooked, or unnaturally bent, a solution does exist: rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job. Since the nose holds such an essential position in the face, our surgeons take any changes to it very seriously and approach it with care in order to avoid disrupting the harmony of the face while offering some improvement.

The nose is a dominant feature in the face. Therefore, any changes to it must be considered carefully.

What is rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty can partially or completely change the shape of your nose depending on whether you opt for work on the soft part only, meaning the tip of the nose and narrowing hypertrophied alar cartilage or the underlying bone as well. For “ethnic noses,” we can perform Europeanization, usually involving a graft (cartilage, bone, or implant such as SuPor) to lift the nose and narrow the nostrils. Some people have rhinoplasty for aesthetic reasons alone, while others do so seeking treatment for health problems usually associated with a deviated septum and related breathing problems.

In certain exceptional cases, minor correction of the nose is possible through non-surgical means, such as thread lifting of hyaluronic acid-based fillers. However, neither of these methods can offer the permanent results of rhinoplasty.

Tip-only rhinoplasty – correction of alar cartilage

A tip-only procedure is approximately thirty minutes long and can be performed under local anesthesia. This procedure reshapes the tip of the nose without changing the profile. If you are interested in more extensive changes, you will need to undergo full rhinoplasty.

For clients’ comfort, full rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. Rhinoplasty can be performed either “closed” (where the incisions are made inside the nose and scars are invisible) or “open” (where the incision and thus scar is made along the outside of the nostril or just under the nose). The goal of this procedure is to change the overall shape of the nose by modifying the cartilage in the tip of the nose, as well as the underlying bone. This surgery is usually performed to remove unwanted bumps or to narrow the nose. Although, in some cases, we also raise the nose using special techniques or implants.

If you have rhinoplasty for health reasons as well as aesthetic concerns such as a deviated septum making it difficult to breathe, we perform a combined rhinoplasty and septoplasty (correction of the septum) in conjunction with ENT specialists. This surgery can also be performed on its own, of course.

Minor defects of the nose can be corrected with a thread lift to the tip of the nose under local anesthesia. This technique is ideal for clients who are concerned about the surgery but want a short-term effect at least. In some cases, hyaluronic acid fillers can also be used to correct minor defects.

Who is a suitable candidate for this procedure

Rhinoplasty is suitable for anyone dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose, whether natural or as the result of an injury, or who suffers from breathing problems. Due to bone growth, this surgery can be performed only upon reaching adulthood.

What can you gain from this procedure

  • A solution to both aesthetic and health issues
  • A change of the shape, width, and length of the nose or nostrils
  • We perform nose europeanization
  • Sensitive proposition considering individual face features
  • Solution for nose deformity
  • Improves breathing


Before / After

Before the procedure

Before deciding on having rhinoplasty, you will need to have an initial consultation with a plastic surgeon. If you decide to visit ABClinic Art & Beauty for this surgery from abroad, you can have the first consultation based on photographs or online.

Since changing the shape of the nose also changes your face in a significant way, our plastic surgeon will propose a form of comparing the results of the operation, either using before/after photographs or a specialized computer program. The surgeon will then recommend a suitable technique. If you suffer from breathing difficulties, we can operate on your septum at the same time after consulting with an ENT specialist.

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia, so you will need to have a pre-operative examination.

The procedure

The procedure is forty-five minutes to one hour long, depending on the planned scope. If a septoplasty is to be performed as well, the process is thirty minutes longer. Based on the interview before the surgery, the plastic surgeon will perform either closed or open rhinoplasty and reshape the tip of the nose and underlying bone as desired.

After the procedure

You shall be hospitalized at our clinic immediately after the surgery.

Instructions for caring for the area operated upon will depend on the surgeon’s chosen technique and preferences. You can begin massaging your nose fourteen to nineteen days after the surgery.

You can resume light office work one week after the procedure.

Unfortunately, the effects of aging and gravity on the body cannot be avoided forever. The aging process will, of course, impact the long-term stability of your rhinoplasty results. In order to maintain good results of the surgery, our specialists will be happy to recommend regular procedures and therapies designed to slow down the aging process in the face. Preventive care products by Dermaceutic Laboratoire, as well as therapies using JEISYS devices and comprehensive, Europeanization exclusive procedures from the Monaco-based RENEVE, will help you retain a youthful appearance longer.

U plastické operace nosu je třeba vzít v úvahu i věk. Operace by neměla být prováděna dříve, než je dokončen vývoj a růst jedince.

  • I’ve always had wrinkles on my neck, and the skin on my chin started to loosen, so I decided to solve my problem. At ABClinic, doctor Krajcová offered a collagen treatment using the Nithya agent. The result is amazing, and improvement has been visible even after the first session. I have had three sessions, my neck and chin are firmer, and the neck is without wrinkles after the third and final session. Julie V.

  • I would like to thank Alice at ABClinic and Dr. Satankova for all their help. I recently attended the ABClinic in Prague for a facelift and lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Satankova is extremely skilled and I have a more youthful but natural result. The clinic is very professionally run and the recovery rooms are beautiful. Traveling from abroad can be daunting but Alice helped me every step of the way, arranging taxi transfers and a hotel. I felt confident and cared for throughout my surgery. I am very happy with the results. Georgina M.
