What Is A Rhinoplasty Suspension?

Nose suspension is a minimally invasive nasal re-shaping procedure which lifts the tip of the nose.

The operation is most suited to patients who have good bone structure who are not wishing to drastically change the appearance of their nose but are seeking slight improvements such as lifting the tip, correcting deformity or addressing the length of the nose.

Performed under local anaesthesia in a clinic environment, nose suspension is a painless procedure which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. The patient is left without scarring and full healing time is expected within three weeks.

Suspension techniques have been effective procedures used in cosmetic surgery operations for many years.  The nose suspension surgery is based on vertical suspension where tiny holes are created within the skin using injections and the nose is lifted using a special surgical thread.

3D simulations are shown to patients before the procedure to illustrate the new shape and results.

What can I expect from my surgery?

Frequently Asked Questions

As with all surgical procedures, your consultant will review your medication and make recommendations, such as refraining from taking blood thinners.

The paper bands which are fitted post-surgery should be kept in place for 4-5 days to ensure the nose keeps its new shape. Patients should be vigilant to avoid any impact to the nose. Patients should also refrain from taking blood thinning medication and avoid any food which may cause an allergic reaction.

Because there is no intervention with the bones and due to the fact that the operation is very short, nose suspension is a painless procedure. Any pain that may arise is easily controlled with pain killers.

Tiny holes are made with injections rather than incisions so the patient is left without any scarring.

It is recommended that patients are a least 18 years of age before undergoing nose suspension. As with all surgical procedures, it is advised that patients have finished developing.

No bones are broken during a nose suspension procedure. The reshaping of the nose is achieved through lifting the tip of the nose with double tipped needles and securing with special surgical thread. The technique can be likened to plastering a broken bone where the nasal tissue is supported against gravity until it clings into place.

The nose will be fully set 3 weeks post-procedure and will not drop or collapse, regardless of whether the suspensions are released. If the suspensions are released before 2 weeks following the procedure, the nose will return to its original form.

Paper bands are used to protect and support the shape of the nose for 4-5 days post-surgery. Splints are not required in a nose suspension procedure.
