Brief Answer:
Hi, Yes Rhinoplasty can be done

Detailed Answer:
Plastic Surgery of the nose is called "Rhinoplasty" and is done to reshape the nose according to the problem that one might have.

I had a look at the picture attached, yes we can do a reduction Rhinoplasty for her. We need to reduce the long nose septum and the cartilages to reduce the length of the nose.

This can be done via a closed or an open approach. I prefer to do it via the closed approach or closed Rhinoplasty.

Side effects are related to the healing phase which is about 3 months post surgery, in the form of some numbness, swelling, dryness of skin. It takes about 3-4 months for the final result to be seen once the skin shrinks. Sometimes rarely, after 6 months some minor revisions may be required in about 2 % cases.

Please visit a Plastic surgeon for this and not a ENT surgeon or a dentist ( Facio maxillary surgeon) for this problem and you should have predictable results.

What exactly needs to be done has to be decided after examining your wife and a one on one consultation.

Im based in Bangalore, if you want you can XXXXXXX me and read more about the procedure from my website mentioned below.

Rates can vary from @ 60,000-1.5 lacs depending on the hospital and room when done by an experienced plastic surgeon. Duration of surgery will be around 2- 2 n half hours and you can go home the same evening.

Thank you for using WWW.WWWW.WW
Wishing her all the best for her surgery.
