Are you considering to get rhinoplasty in Singapore? Please read on to discover more about this interesting surgical term. Rhinoplasty is a abroad term that is used to describe a variety of cosmetic procedures that entail enhancing the way your nose looks like.

The kind of procedure that you get will be determined by the level of invasiveness that you can withstand as well as the kind of look that you want to achieve.

It is therefore important for you to be well acquainted with what is on offer so that you can select the right procedure for your needs.

(1) Non-Surgical Nose Jobs With Fillers

If you want a non-invasive solution to your nose problems, then reshaping them with non surgical fillers may be the best way to get what you want. If the muscles of your upper nose have contracted and you would like to get rid of the wrinkles that have appeared, then you should consider botox as well to get rid of them.

You can opt for fillers if you have a widened nasal dorsum. The filler will be able to elevate any nose depressions, to raise your bridge and give your nose a narrower look.

Since most Singapore clinics use temporary fillers (Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm, etc.) to sculpt the nose you want into shape, any nose job that you obtain using them will last between 9 months to 1.5 years. You will therefore have to go for more sessions each time you would like to maintain the shape of it.


While this may seem like much, in fact it is a good idea because as we age, our face changes its form, going back to the clinic helps us get the touch ups to look as natural as possible through the years.

(2) Septorhinoplasty

Septorhinoplasty is a combination of septoplasty and rhinoplasty. The former procedure is usually done to correct breathing problems while the later is done to enhance the appearance of your nose.

Septorhinoplasty is therefore the procedure that you should consider when you want to kill two birds with one stone. For example, if you have a deviated septum that is making it difficult to breathe, as well as a crooked nose, then the procedure will enable you to solve both problems at once.

You need to ensure that the surgeon you pick for this procedure is very familiar with not just the cosmetic aspect of the nose, but its inner workings as well. Otherwise, your breathing problem will be much worse than when you started, if things go wrong.

(3) Asian Nose Jobs (Raising Nose Bridge)

Asians usually have a distinct look that may set them apart from other races. The Asian rhinoplasty therefore enables you to obtain a more western look if you are Asian or possess Asian features.

The procedure for the Asian rhinoplasty usually involves enhancing the height of the nose, sharpening its tip, making the nose narrower and more popularly – raising the nose bridge. All these will ensure that you get that western look that you are going for.

(4) Western Nose Surgery (Nose Hump Removal)

A western rhinoplasty is usually a cosmetic nose job whose aim is to ensure that you attain the ultimate western look. Many people who opt for this kind of procedure want the ultimate Barbie doll look. Others want to look more like their favorite Hollywood celebrities.

The procedure may entail the straightening of the bridge of the nose, narrowing the nose, lengthening it, sharpening its tip and also removal of excess bony structures (humps). Ultimately, the aim is to help you achieve the perfect westernized look that is suited to your existing facial features.

(5) African Rhinoplasty (Bulbous Tip Reduction)

People who have an African descent usually have a wider and sometimes flatter nose with a round, bulbous nasal tip. If you belong to this category, you may want to think carefully about the kind of procedure that you have as far as a nose job goes.

An African rhinoplasty procedure usually entails enhancing the definition of the nose. What this means is that instead of making your nose unrealistically smaller, you will be getting an overall nose augmentation. This will include narrowing of the nose, creating a narrower bridge as well as enhancing or in most cases, reducing the nose tip.

Because of the complexity that the African skin presents due to its thickness, you need to ensure that you hire a surgeon who is comfortable with a more complex nose job. That way, you can be sure that your nose will be redefined to your satisfaction.

(6) Traditional Surgical Rhinoplasty

Traditional nose jobs are those that entail a certain level of invasiveness in order to correct the underlying nose problems. The traditional version will entail having incisions made on your nose from either the inside or outside of your nostrils. Once these incisions have been done, your nasal cartilage and bone will be reshaped to suit your needs; both medical and aesthetic. After that they will be closed and a nasal splint used to retain your nasal features until healing takes place.

The traditional nose surgery is usually meant to have permanent results, which makes up for the level of invasiveness. In addition, it ensures that residual scarring on your nose cannot be seen.

(7) Silicone Nose Implants

Another way through which you can enhance the appearance of your nose is through nose implants. These implants can be inserted into your nose to help you achieve the look that you are going for.

Implants are usually synthetic in nature. Silicone implants are among the more common implants used for rhinoplasty. Goretex implants are an additional option in this category that you can explore. What you want is to find something that is less likely to cause complications later on.

The implants are usually a good option if you want to build up your nose bridge in order to undergo a more extensive procedure later on. These are also a more permanent form of rhinoplasty than fillers.

Nose fillers like Restylane and Radiesse and temporary and usually last between 9 months to 1.5 years. Nose fillers can be a better alternative if you’re looking to see how your nose looks like with a raised bridge. Then, you could follow up with a more permanent surgical option.

(8) Price of nose jobs (Cost of surgical rhinoplasty)

The price/cost of nose jobs (surgical rhinoplasty) is one that varies a lot. It can be something as low as $8,000 and something as high as $20,000 depending on the kind of procedure that you want done.

Rhinoplasty costs vary a lot because a huge number of factors affect them. A more qualified and experienced doctor in Singapore is highly likely to charge more than a less qualified and experienced counterpart. In addition, the location of the surgeon matters a lot.

Comparatively, Singapore is more costly as compared to countries like Thailand and Korea, however, when asking “how much does a nose jobs cost?” you’ll need to factor in insurance (and whether or not medishield/medisave can cover your costs) needs to be brought to the forefront (though you can’t claim insurance for all types of surgical rhinoplasty) because once you consider the fact that up to as high as HALF of the fees are claimable, things balance out pretty evenly. When you consider flight, accomodation, food expenses, travel and the pain of recovering without your loved ones around you, Singapore becomes a better option compared to overseas surgeons.

The disparity in costs can be attributed to the cost of living, the demand for nose jobs, be they surgical and permanent in nature or temporary with fillers, as well as the supply of surgeons who do the procedures.

If you have more problems that need fixing, you will pay more for your nose job. The more complicated your issues may be, the more money you will pay especially if you need several types of operations in one, to get the nose you want.

So if you’re thinking about getting a nose job done, then look no further…
