Rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a “nose job” is a plastic and/or reconstructive procedure that improves the appearance and/or function of the nose.

Why Undergo a Rhinoplasty?

The main motivation for a rhinoplasty is cosmetic aiming to correct an undesired appearance of the external nose: dorsum hump, tip deformities, wide base, etc. It is also performed as a reconstructive procedure following a trauma / injury and can also serve patients who suffer from breathing difficulties.

What are the Risks Involved?

The Rhinoplasty is a complex, but relatively safe surgery. At BESH we perform dozens of rhinoplasties per year and have not had any major incidents. However all surgeries do come with some risks that you will be made aware of.

The main risks involved have to do with bleeding, swelling and as is the case with all surgeries: an adverse reaction to anesthesia – this can be a local or general anesthesia depending on the case.

Side Effects of the Surgery

Like any surgery there are some side effects that one must keep in mind:

  • There will be some bleeding and swelling of the nose
  • Your doctor will dress your nose and tape a wooden or plastic splint to your nose to support it
  • There may be some bruising, this is case-dependent
  • You will also have to take precautions to avoid any contact with the nose and thus avoid any extra bleeding e.g. no sports, do not blow your nose, do not strain your face

Recovery Time

It usually takes a week of rest before you can go about and continue your daily activities (with limitations). The swelling however may take up to a few months to fully resolve.

What to expect during rhinoplasty surgery?

  • Following your consultation you will be directed to the Surgery Scheduling Department where the following information will be provided:
    1. Date and time of your pre-operation medical examinations
    2. Amount to be paid / paperwork to be completed
    3. Date and time of your surgery
  • Pre-operation medical examinations will take place 24-48 hours before the surgery – please arrange to spend approximately 2 hours at the hospital
  • On the day of surgery you will be admitted to a room to wait for your surgery slot
  • Following induction to the operating room you will be put under anesthesia
  • Following the surgery you will be back in your room to have a quick rest and then you are good to go
  • A post-op visit will take place the following day

I have been followed up in Besh since Years, by Dr Ziad Khweir. I can’t recommend him nor the hospital enough for the wonderful work they Have been doing. Such an empathetic professional and loving team. I have visited so many Drs all over the world and visited many eye hospitals; yet, and very objectively i have never been followed that closely and that ethically by anyone else. Dr Khweir knows very well the scope of his work and in case of Co morbidities, he knows the limit of whAt he does and recommends excellent colleague of his at all times. I am blessed to be his and Besh s patient.

I am writing to share my incredibly positive experience with the intralasik eye surgery I recently underwent at BESH. From start to finish, the care I received was truly exceptional. The professionalism of the entire staff, including the skilled doctors, attentive nurses, and supportive support team, was noteworthy. They not only demonstrated a high level of expertise but also made sure I felt comfortable and well-informed throughout the entire process.Communication was excellent, with the medical staff taking the time to thoroughly explain the procedure and answer all my questions. I felt well-supported at every step, which significantly eased any pre-surgery apprehensions.The post-surgery care was just as impressive. The recovery process was smooth, and the follow-up care provided by the BESH team demonstrated their commitment to patient well-being.I wholeheartedly recommend BESH Hospital to anyone considering similar procedures.
