what is anrhinoplasty?

"Nose-job": Rhinoplasty is plastic-surgery intended to repair or reconstruct the nose. "anrhinoplasty" is not a real word.

Great question: I have no idea. :) rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping operation. The prefix -an usually means "without.". You may have a mis-spelling or perhaps someone has made up a term, but that isn't a real medical term that I have encountered.

Nose job: It is reshaping of the outside of the nose.
Dr. Christopher Khorsandi

rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure in which the cosmetic and functional aspects of the nose can be altered. Rhinoplasty can help to reduce the size of the nose, reshape, and improve breathing. It is commonly referred to as a nose job.

A 26-year-old female asked:

Ive heard there is a nonsurgical alternative for rhinoplasty. How does this work?

Dr. Andre Berger
Cosmetic Surgery 40 years experience
Injectable Fillers: Injection rhinoplasty is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure utilizing injectable fillers such as restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, Radiesse or artefill. It works best to straighten or to improve the look of noses with bumps or dips, but is not useful to issues related to the tips of noses. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and results can last months to years, depending on the filler used.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Is it safe to get rhinoplasty when you have a cold?

4 doctor answers21 doctors weighed in
Dr. David Astrachan
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 37 years experience
Wait for the OR: As a surgeon the first rule is minimize risk. Having a cold means that you are not in perfect health. The cold can affect your breathing, irritate your lungs and airway. You should not have anesthesia when you are sick. It may be inconvenient but it is much safer.

Any systemic infection is a NO NO to having any kind of surgery. Please re schedule when you are better.

A 38-year-old male asked:

Is there an age after which cosmetic rhinoplasty probably isn't a good idea? A family member (38) is considering...

No age limit: Cosmetic rhinoplasty has no age limit. Certainly 38 yo is fine. I have performed functional rhinoplasty on healthy patients up in their 70's and early 80's. As long as the patient is healthy enough to have anesthesia, and has appropriate expectations, rhinoplasty is a viable option. I would recommend consolation with a qualified facial plastic surgeon who performs lots of rhinoplasty.

Post surgery: It depends on your overall health. More medical or complex medical issues, the longer is the recovery.

How long does it take to fully recover from a cosmetic rhinoplasty?

Up to one year: Although most doctors say that the healing from a rhinoplasty is over in 6 months, it can take up to a year to fully recover.

Depends on "fully recover." Pain after rhinoplasty is not severe, and most swelling and bruising is gone in 4 weeks. The nose is sensitive if touched at that point, but not much more. After 4 weeks, there are some subtle changes in the nose, but most of the healing is done.
