The tip of the nose is shaped by acting on the cartilages, either by reducing them or by increasing them by providing grafts. The height of the nose and the width of the nose are reduced by two lateral osteotomies which bring in the bones of the nose. After these first steps we can appreciate the residual width of the base of the nose, if necessary, the nostril openings will then be reduced.

It is possible to remodel the tip of the nose, in order to refine it, raise it or move it back if necessary, this at the end of puberty. Between 30 and 50 years old, rhinoplasty often brings a rejuvenating effect, particularly in the event of a narrowing of the nose (too long, too wide).

Rhinoplasty is most often performed in young patients, in late adolescence see earlier if the discomfort is significant and if nasal growth has ended.

REHEARSAL / DURABILITY: retouching possible
General anaesthesia
FINAL RESULT: immediate and optimal after 10 days

Rhinoplasty is most often performed under general anesthesia but in some cases, particularly touch-ups, local anesthesia combined with intravenous sedatives is possible.

The dissection of the nose is done through invisible incisions, made inside the nostrils, but it can also be practiced by passing through the columella (area between the nostrils), one then speaks of “external” way which is reserved for complex first-line rhinoplasties or difficult secondary revisions.

Each constitutive anatomical element of the nose can be the subject of a precise and particular surgical correction. The first stage of the intervention consists in treating the defects of the septum when they exist and interfere with nasal breathing.


It is possible to correct certain small defects of the nose by simple injection of either Hyaluronic acid or Radiesse.
This technique is simple and widely used in the event of a defect after surgical rhinoplasty.
