What do I need to do before Rhinoplasty Surgery in Dubai?

Once you are done with your initial consultation, you will be asked to sign a consent form for your surgery. A date will be set once you are satisfied and clear about the procedure, as well as the potential risks and complications. Moving ahead, the support team will guide you through the process of getting ready for the big day.

They will give you instructions on a variety of topics, such as the medicines you may be taking; for example. You may need to stop taking aspirin at least two weeks ahead of time. Besides, they may also suggest:

Make sure that you arrive for the surgery in loose, comfortable clothing, free of make-up and jewellery.

Step-by-step Rhinoplasty

Performed as an outpatient procedure, Rhinoplasty is a complex surgery requiring the highest level of expertise. The time period of treatment is determined by the surgery’s complexity and the technique used. The following are the steps in the procedure:

  • Reducing the size of the nose by removing bone or cartilage.
  • Increasing the size of the nose, a cartilage graft is attached.
  • Aligning a deviated septum 
  • Creating the desired shape by sculpting the underlying structure.

What to expect from a Rhinoplasty surgery in Dubai?

Immediately after the surgery
  • Rhinoplasty has a surprisingly short recovery period, usually lasting only a week after the splints and bandages are removed.
  • Your nose may still remain swollen at that point, and you may also have swelling around your cheeks and eyes, but the bruising and swelling will have subsided by the end of 2 weeks. Cold compresses, in addition to medication, will help keep this under control. You will also be put on nasal splints or gauzes for almost a week.
  • You and your surgeon will notice some swelling for a few months after surgery, but casual observers will only notice something nice and different about your face.
  • Our rhinoplasty surgeon in Dubai at MPSI clinic will use gauze bandages and splints to aid in the initial healing process. The swelling will cease in a few weeks, and the new shape of your nose will gradually emerge.
Rhinoplasty Before and after


Although the natural ageing process can change the shape of the nose in later years, the surgery’s results are essentially permanent, and the improvement over the original shape will be visible.

Healthy living, combined with adequate sun protection, will help you keep your new look for longer.

What is Corrective or Revision Rhinoplasty in Dubai?

A secondary, corrective, or revision Rhinoplasty is performed to correct the shape and/or function of the nose that was either not corrected or worsened by an earlier Rhinoplasty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Because the nose is such a small part of the body, many people believe that rhinoplasty is a minor procedure. In reality, a nose job is a major surgical procedure because the nose is such an important part of the respiratory system.

Rhinoplasty surgeries aren’t usually painful but congestion and sinus pressure can cause tenderness or aches in some patients. Having said that, the surgeon will be able to discuss some pain management options with you before the procedure and will write you a prescription for pain relief that you can fill.

Because the incisions in a closed rhinoplasty are made inside the nose, there are no visible scars on the outside. Even with an open rhinoplasty, the incisions are small and strategically placed so that they are hidden or camouflaged by the skin’s natural features.

“It all depends,” is the real answer. Rhinoplasty is best done after a person has stopped growing, as a general rule. Patients who are embarking on a new chapter in their lives, such as college or a new job, may benefit from Rhinoplasty to help them reflect that change.

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the appearance and/or functionality of the nose. It involves reshaping or reconstructing the nose to achieve the desired outcome.

There are various types of rhinoplasty procedures, including closed, open and preservation rhinoplasty. Other types are reduction rhinoplasty, augmentation rhinoplasty, aesthetic rhinoplasty, and revision rhinoplasty.

 Each procedure is tailored to address specific concerns and goals.

The duration of a rhinoplasty procedure can vary depending on the complexity of the case. On average, it takes around 3-5  hours to complete. However, more complicated cases may require additional time.

Yes, rhinoplasty can improve both the aesthetic appearance and functionality of the nose. It can address concerns such as nasal asymmetry, a prominent bump, a deviated septum, or breathing difficulties.

When choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon, it is important to look for qualifications such as board certification, specialised training in plastic surgery, and a proven track record of successful rhinoplasty procedures. At MPSI clinic in Dubai, our highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeons,  Dr Adnan Tahir and Dr Rory McGoldrick, specialise in rhinoplasties.

Rhinoplasty is generally a safe procedure when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications. At MPSI clinic, our surgeons prioritise patient safety and take all necessary precautions to minimise risks.

The cost of rhinoplasty can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the procedure, the surgeon’s expertise, and the location of the clinic. At MPSI clinic, we offer personalised consultations where we can provide you with a detailed cost estimate based on your specific needs and goals.

The recovery process after rhinoplasty involves some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications. You may need to wear a splint or nasal packing for a few days to support the nose during the initial healing phase.

The initial recovery period typically takes about 1 to 2 weeks, during which you may experience some swelling and bruising. However, it can take several months for the swelling to fully subside and for the final results to be evident.

Like any surgical procedure, rhinoplasty carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, adverse reaction to anaesthesia, scarring, and asymmetry. However, these risks can be minimised by choosing a skilled surgeon and following post-operative care instructions.

The incisions made during rhinoplasty are typically placed in inconspicuous areas, such as inside the nose or along the natural creases of the nostrils. This approach helps minimise visible scarring. At MPSI clinic, our surgeons are skilled in placing incisions strategically to ensure that any resulting scars are as discreet as possible.

Yes, rhinoplasty can be performed to correct a deviated septum, which can cause breathing difficulties and aesthetic concerns. This procedure, known as septorhinoplasty, involves reshaping the nasal septum to improve both function and appearance.

Rhinoplasty primarily focuses on enhancing the shape and appearance of the nose. While a well-performed rhinoplasty can bring balance and harmony to the facial features, it does not typically alter the overall shape of the face. The primary goal is to achieve a natural-looking nose that complements your facial features.

The timeline for resuming normal activities after rhinoplasty can vary for each individual. Generally, you can expect to return to work within 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the extent of the procedure and your body’s healing process. However, it is important to avoid strenuous activities and follow the post-operative guidelines provided by your surgeon.

Yes, after rhinoplasty, it is common to wear a splint or cast on the nose to protect and support it during the initial healing phase. This helps to minimise swelling, maintain the new shape, and promote proper healing. Your surgeon will advise you on how long you will need to wear the splint or cast.

At MPSI clinic, we have a collection of before and after photos of previous rhinoplasty patients. During your consultation, our surgeons can show you these photos to give you a better understanding of the potential results and help you visualise the possible outcomes of the procedure. 

The results of rhinoplasty are generally long-lasting. However, it is important to keep in mind that natural aging and the effects of gravity can still impact the nose over time. It is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow your surgeon’s instructions to ensure the longevity of your rhinoplasty results.

It is important to follow these instructions closely to ensure a smooth and successful surgery.
