(Correction Of The Nose)

Professor Gress is one of the top specialists internationally

The nose is of central significance for the appearance of the face.
It divides the face into two halves
and substantially determines the profile.

There are few parts of our body that hold such divergent attributes and meanings as the nose: It serves as a source of inspiration for painters and poets, a focus of countless paintings and pictures, fairy tales and stories. It is admired and ridiculed. Some even claim you can read a person’s character by their nose. A nose correction with Prof. Gress in Munich will give you the nose you have always wanted.

Aesthetic surgery of the nose, also known as rhinoplasty, aims to improve not only the appearance of your nose but also the harmony of your entire face by changing the shape and/or size of your nose.

The success of an aesthetic nose correction, i.e. one that improves its shape, depends on many factors. Above all, the skill and experience of the surgeon should match the patient’s expectations for the result.

You will have a consultation at our clinic in Munich before the procedure. Prof. Gress will take sufficient time with you; most of all, he is interested in learning about your desired outcome for the procedure. The function and shape of your nose will be examined and documented and the surgical procedure discussed with you.

Because the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, medical preparation is necessary, including blood count and ECG. No blood-thinning medication (aspirin, Marcumar etc.) is permitted 14 days before the operation!

Nose structure with bone and cartilage

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. A small, step-shaped incision at the bridge of the nose (columella) allows the skin of the nose to be folded upward, so that cartilage and the nasal bone are visible. The cartilage and bone are then modified to produce the shape and size of the desired nose, and the skin is folded down. A cast and a tamponade stabilize the nose.

Generally, a nose cast is worn for 12 days, the stitches removed after five days. The nasal tamponade is removed the day after the operation. Cooling.

Do not touch the nose initially after the procedure and avoid contact sports. Your nose can have a “furry” feeling for up to a year and also be slightly swollen for that long. As a rule, no changes occur after one year. Any bruising disappears after about 14 days. See below for more details.

In Germany, the German Drug Advertising Act (Heilmittelwerbegesetz) does not permit before and after pictures of cosmetic surgery to be displayed. You can view these during your personal consultation with us.

Examples of medically indicated nose corrections:

Reconstruction of a nose with hump caused by an accident
Use of cartilage transplant to correct a saddle nose caused by an accident
