Each year thousands of people undergo surgery of the nose. Nasal surgery may be performed for cosmetic
purposes, or a combination procedure to improve both form and function. It also may alleviate or cure nasal breathing problems, correct deformities from birth or injury, or support an aging, drooping nose.
Rhinoplasty (also known as nose surgery or nose job) is a facial cosmetic procedure, usually performed to enhance the appearance of the nose. The term rhinoplasty means “nose moulding” or “nose forming.”
During a rhinoplasty procedure, the nasal cartilages and bones are modified to make the nose smaller (reduction rhinoplasty), or tissue is added (augmentation rhinoplasty). The change can be made by adding or removing bone or cartilage, grafting tissue from another part of the body, or implanting synthetic material to alter the shape of the nose.
At Secret Surgery Ltd, people often report how they feel much more self confident and generally happier after undergoing nose surgery to correct a flaw or issue with their nose.
We value our patients feedback immensely and that is why we invite you to interact with our on line community of patients who can offer you’re their first hand experience of nose cosmetic surgery in Poland.
I Am a candidate for a Nose Surgery
If the natural shape of your nose is making you very unhappy and impeding your quality of life, or if your nose is misshapen because of an accident or injury then talking to our skilled cosmetic surgeons in Poland will give you a good idea about what can and can’t be done to help you.
There are certain things that nose surgery can change for you:
Nose size, in relation to the rest of your facial features
The width of the bridge of your nose
Large, bulbous, drooping or too upturned a nose
Large and/or wide nostrils
An asymmetrical or deviated nose
The shape and structure of your nose is fully developed by the age of sixteen. A skilled cosmetic surgeon can only work with the existing bone and cartilage structure, so there are limits to the extent that the shape can be altered by nose surgery.
Before you decide to undergo rhinoplasty, you should be certain that it is really what you want. Your nose is the most prominent feature on your face, and changing its shape can significantly alter your facial appearance.
It is essential that you have realistic expectations for your rhinoplasty surgery outcome. Discussing your expectations for your desired result fully with your surgeon is very important; this will ensure that your goals are compatible with what is surgically possible.
You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty surgery if you fulfill the following criteria:
Your facial growth is complete and you are 18 years of age or older
You are physically and mentally healthy
You have specific, and, importantly, realistic goals for the results of your nose job surgery

Nose Surgery Recovery & Heading Steps
When you come round from your nose surgery, you will have packs (dressings) in each nostril for about a day, which will stop you from breathing through your nose. You may be asked to stay in hospital overnight, so that the packs can be removed in the morning.
During your stay in Poland, Your Medical team will advise you of the following;

Medications to apply or to take orally to reduce the risk of infection
Specific changes at the surgical site or in overall health
You will be seen daily by medical staff during your stay in Poland, to ensure that your recovery and healing proceed in optimum standards.
A return to light and normal activity is possible as soon as you feel ready, which is normally a few days after surgery, however initial wound healing may take between 5 to 10 days. During this time your surgeon will advise when your medical dressings and stitches will be removed.
You will be able to return to work and resume normal activity after this time.
Nose Surgery Effects and Surgery Risks
The decision to have cosmetic nose surgery is an exceptionally personal one and you will have to decide if the surgery will achieve your goals and expectations.

Patients experience an immediate satisfaction at their results, and experience fulfillment in self-confidence and achieving their goal for an improved facial profile.
