Frequently Asked Questions
Is it for me?
If you’re unhappy with the size, shape or position of your nose, you may be the ideal candidate for nose surgery. However Dr Hunt will discuss your situation and suitability for rhinosplasty surgery in detail during your personal one-on-one consultation.
Dr Hunt performs all nose surgery under a general anesthetic, administered by one of his carefully selected anesthetists in the hospital of your choice.
Either an open or closed surgical technique will be used, depending on the extent of your surgery. However both techniques leave minimal to no scarring on the outside of the nose, as all incisions are made from the inside.
During your surgery, Dr Hunt will gently and carefully separate the skin of your nose from the bone and cartilage, before sculpting it to your desired size and shape.
When your surgery is finished, a splint will be placed over the bridge of your nose. If your septum was adjusted (the cartilage between your nostrils), Dr Hunt will also pack inside your nose.
The whole procedure generally takes around two hours.
When can I go home?
You can choose to go home on either the day of your nose surgery or after an overnight hospital stay. Whichever you choose, you should rest in bed with your head elevated for the first day, and then limit your movements to around the house for the next two to three days. During the first 24 hours your face will feel puffy, your nose may ache and you may have a dull headache. Cold packs and the pain medication prescribed before you left the hospital will help.
Will I have to return for post-operative care?
You’ll come to see Dr Hunt within the first week after your surgery, so that he can check you’re recovering well and remove any packing, your splint and usually your sutures. You’ll then have regular follow up visits over the next year so that Dr Hunt can ensure you’ve achieved the desired result and that you are recovering nicely.
How long will I be off work?
You should plan on taking two weeks off work to allow a full recovery.
As the swelling and bruising around your eyes will actually increase at first, peaking around three days after surgery, you plan on minimal activity during this time. After that time, you can resume your normal activities as soon as you feel comfortable.
The swelling and bruising will then begin to subside, disappearing within around two weeks. Some subtle swelling will linger for several months, however only you and Dr Hunt need be aware of it.
When will I see the end result?
While it will take a number of months for the skin of your nose to fully ‘re-drape’ and to see the absolute final result, you will see big changes within a matter of weeks.
How much will rhinoplasty cost me?
Rhinoplasty is a very personal procedure. There are so many aspects of the nose that can be altered – both physical and functional. The first step in determining the final cost of this surgery is to schedule a consultation with Dr Hunt. This way, he can evaluate your concerns and understand what you want to achieve. Whether or not Dr Hunt opts for a closed or open procedure will also alter the cost of the procedure. Finally, anaesthetist, hospital and surgeon fees are also factored into the final cost of your surgery. Patients that choose to undertake rhinoplasty for medical reasons can usually apply for a Medicare rebate, which will cover some of the costs. Any deformities or breathing difficulties that are caused by injury or trauma will generally attract a Medicare rebate. Dr Hunt can take you through the specific requirements during your consultation once your nose has been evaluated.
