Rhinoplasty is a sophisticated cosmetic surgery procedure that requires advanced skill and aesthetic judgment on the part of the surgeon. At Aviva Cosmetic & Laser Clinic we possess all of the skills required to consistently deliver exceptional results. We combine surgical skill with state-of-the-art technologies and compassionate patient care to deliver results that enhance the beauty of the face while appearing completely natural.

Rhinoplasty in Toronto: Am I a Candidate?
You might be a candidate if you suffer from cosmetic or functional problems related to your nose. At Aviva Cosmetic & Laser Clinic we can correct both types of issues during nose surgery. When the procedure is performed for purely cosmetic reasons, the goal is often a reduction in nostril size, removal of a prominent hump, refinement of the tip or improvement in the symmetry of the nasal bridge. When the procedure is performed for mainly functional reasons, the goal is often the repair of a deviated septum to improve breathing. In some cases, the procedure might be performed for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
Preparing for Your Surgery
Although Rhinoplasty involves only a small part of the face, it is one of the most complex plastic surgery treatments. Therefore, we take the time to thoroughly prepare our patients for this procedure. We first evaluate the patient’s medical history, overall health and nasal structures. We then asks each Toronto Rhinoplasty patient to explain his or her aesthetic expectations and wishes. Working together with the patient, we develop an individualized treatment plan that reflects the patient’s unique cosmetic needs, concerns and preferences.
Throughout the preparation process at Aviva Cosmetic & Laser Clinic, we encourage our patients to ask as many questions as they can think of. By answering patient questions and providing detailed explanations of every proposed procedure, we alleviate patient anxiety and promote a sense of relaxation and calmness.
How Is It Performed?
Depending on the extent of reshaping required, we will perform either open or closed nasal surgery. When performing open Rhinoplasty, we create an incision across the columella (the strip of skin between the nostrils). This incision allows us to open the nose and reshape the bone and cartilage. Once the incision heals, it is barely noticeable, as it can only be seen from underneath the nose.
During closed Rhinoplasty surgery, incisions are placed only inside the nose. This form is less invasive. However, it is generally not appropriate if extensive nasal reshaping is desired. The best technique for each nasal surgery patient can be determined only during a personal consultation with our surgeon.
After the surgery is completed, the nose will be bandaged with and a special splint. Most patients experience some swelling and bruising during the next few weeks, as well as some discomfort caused by the swelling. However, any pain can usually be managed with prescription medications. We remain in close contact with all of our patients during the recovery period, and we encourage them to contact us immediately if any unusual symptoms occur.
Most of the swelling and bruising subsides within a few weeks, at which time most patients can resume all of their daily activities. However, the final results of Rhinoplasty might not become apparent until one year has passed due to minor residual swelling. Once the healing process is completed, the results of nose surgery are permanent.
