What happens during the Middle Eastern rhinoplasty procedure?

Different ethnicities have underlying structural commonalities, although of course there are variations from patient to patient. Dr. Fechner takes the particular, unique qualities of each patient’s nose into account in planning and performing Middle Eastern rhinoplasty.

Middle Eastern noses tend to be longer with a bulbous or prominent tip, which may point downward toward the chin. Some noses have a noticeable hump on the bridge. Often the internal structural support must be carefully altered, as the underlying structure can be deceptively weak. Dr. Fechner will reduce the tip and shorten and refine the nose millimeter by millimeter, and carefully make other changes to refine your nasal shape.

Your procedure will begin with general anesthesia. Dr. Fechner will move forward with your surgery with custom techniques based on your needs:

Closed rhinoplasty

Finite, precise changes to the nose require the closed rhinoplasty technique. Small incisions are made inside the nostrils, leaving no scars. Using these incisions, Dr. Fechner will make refinements and changes that require less significant restructuring.

Open rhinoplasty

More complex alterations are made with the open rhinoplasty technique. Small incisions are made on the outside of the nose, hidden in the natural folds of the skin. Dr. Fechner will then lift the nasal skin to expose the underlying nasal structures and make more significant changes to the nasal structure.

Recovery after Middle Eastern rhinoplasty

When your procedure is complete, Dr. Fechner will apply an external splint and tape over your nose to help it heal in the proper shape. He will remove this splint after one week. Expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort during your healing process. Keep your head elevated and use cold compresses to help reduce swelling.

Most patients require about two weeks before they feel ready to return to light, sedentary work. It will be at least 3-4 weeks before you can engage in strenuous activity or exercise.

Final swelling will eventually fade over a period of months, and the shape of the nose may change as the swelling reduces during this time. This is normal, and we will guide you through this process until your nose is fully healed and the swelling is gone completely, revealing your ultimate results.
