It is not always essential that your nose is broken during a rhinoplasty and this will depend on the technique used by the surgeon, the type of nasal deformities and the end goals from the procedure. Usually if you are correcting the bridge of the nose, narrowing the nose or straightening the nose then the nose is usually surgically broken in a controlled manner using surgical cutting instruments to make precise cuts to reposition the nose.
Our new preservation rhinoplasty technique does not require the nose to be broken during surgery when removing a hump or changing the shape of the nose. Instead the nose is reduced from inside the nostril and as the nose gets smaller, the bump or hump will be reduced.
This technique is less invasive and less traumatic for the patient. Dorsal preservation also achieves a more natural result and allows for faster recovery with patients being discharged to recover at home the same day as their surgery.
