How does Dr Andrew Kim perform the surgery?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reconstruct and reshape one’s nose.

For Asians, rhinoplasty involves inserting an implant over the nasal bridge, often with a material called Goretex™, in order to give extra height. It also involves reshaping the nose tip by using some septum or ear cartilage if necessary.

The same technique is applied for Caucasian noses however, some methods that are used for Caucasians do not always work effectively on Asians.

Is Rhinoplasty safe?

Rhinoplasty is performed with twilight anesthesia so the patient will be sedated.

Dr Kim prefers to use Goretex™ and carves a nasal implant during the procedure so he is able to adjust and create an appropriate implant that suits one’s nose. Dr Kim harvests septum cartilage which allows him not only to reshape the nose tip but also to give extra length to the nose. By using one’s natural tissues, it reduces risks of implant rejection and infection.

How long does the nose surgery take?

Dr Andrew Kim takes usually between 2 – 4 hours. We have an efficient team to care for the patient during and after the surgery.

How long is the recovery process?

Most people develop swelling and bruising after the surgery for the first couple of days. The patient may also have some difficulty breathing through the nose. Swelling should peak in a few days, and gradually reduces over a couple of months. Stitches are usually removed between 5 – 6 days after the surgery and no tapings are further required. Our friendly staff will provide pre and post surgery care instructions to follow.

How much does a nose job cost?

The cost of nose surgery start from AUD$8,800. However, as each person is unique and the procedure needed varies in each individual, the type of nose surgery that you need to have done may have a direct impact on the cost involved.

The best way to understand the total cost involved is to go for free consultation.
