Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

Rhinoplasty or what is known as a nosejob is a surgical procedure that reshapes the nose for a harmonious symmetry whilst addressing functional issues where applicable.

Rhinoplasty offers the most significant change to a patient's facial features as the nose is the most prominent part of a person's face.

We offer both surgical methods and non-surgical methods to beautify the nose at GEM CLINIC.

Rhinoplasty  Malaysia by GEM Clinic

There are 2 main approaches. It is important to choose an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon as every single nose differs in shape, size and structure. No two rhinoplasty surgeries are the same. 

 

Closed Rhinoplasty (with silicone implant)

This is the most common Rhinoplasty approach in Malaysia as it is simple with a shorter surgical duration. A small incision is made inside the nostril and a silicone implant is inserted to increase the height of the tip, radix and bridge. The whole procedure is done via the small incision opening. 

 

 

Open Rhinoplasty 

Open structured rhinoplasty (OSR) is the ideal rhinoplasty method as it offers the surgeon full access to the internal structures of the nose. OSR requires an experienced surgeon as it is a complex surgical procedure. In OSR, an incision is made across the columella and the skin is raised to reveal all nose bone and cartilages. Removal and reshaping of all structures is done under direct vision which is critical as this is a surgery of millimeters. Bony contouring, cartilage reshaping with addition of grafts are performed based on the patient’s concerns and expectations. OSR is recommended in complex revision rhinoplasty cases.
