Whether your refinements are subtle or dramatic, the ideal nose job is one that never looks “done”. Beautiful, natural and proportional are the ultimate objectives.

The nose, as one of the most distinguishing facial features, must be addressed with balance and proportion in mind. At our plastic surgery clinic in Singapore, we handle rhinoplasties with great care to enhance the appearance and function of the nose so that patients leave our clinic in style and comfort.

IS RHINOPLASTY RIGHT FOR ME?

If you are unhappy with your nasal form and function, such as a wide nose or a broken nose which led to difficulty breathing properly; then you may have considered a rhinoplasty, which can correct all these in one procedure.

Here are what you can touch up on during a rhinoplasty:

  • Improve asymmetry or a crooked appearance
  • Refine or narrow the tip
  • Adjust the tip projection
  • Reduce the nasal width
  • Reduce the size of the nostrils
  • Correct functional damage, such as a deviated septum
  • Improve your breathing
  • Remove a bump on the nose bridge

Skilled in the art and science of rhinoplasty, Dr Colin Tham, a Ministry of Health-certified plastic surgeon, brings decades of experience, meticulous attention to detail and an eye for beauty to achieve exquisite results.

HOW IS
RHINOPLASTY DONE?

Depending on the type of rhinoplasty, it is performed while the patient is under either sedation with local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia. The entire operation generally takes between one to two hours. In most cases, Dr Tham skillfully creates small incisions inside the nose, which means that there will be no external incisions or visible scarring. In the remaining minority of rhinoplasty surgeries, a small incision is created at the bottom of the nose where it is easily concealed.

In most cases, Dr Tham does not use nose packing, which translates to an easier recovery and less pain. Usually, a nasal splint will be placed at the top of the nose and worn for a few days to provide support and control swelling following surgery.


Every Patient Deserves Personalized, Quality Care

Dr Colin Tham is a certified plastic surgeon in Singapore who has been committed to the safety and satisfaction of his patients for over 20 years.

The nose, located front and centre, provides the foundation for facial harmony. Dr Tham’s approach to rhinoplasties is driven by three goals: to enhance the appearance and function of the patient’s nose, to do so with natural-looking results, and to ensure minimal to no scarring and discomfort.

WHAT DO I NEED TO CONSIDER BEFORE OPTING FOR A
RHINOPLASTY?
AM I A SUITABLE CANDIDATE FOR RHINOPLASTY?

Physically, the nose must be fully developed – typically by around age 14 for girls and 16 for boys.

Young patients also need to demonstrate emotional maturity and understanding about the plastic surgery process.

Otherwise, in general, most people can benefit from a rhinoplasty.

  • Open Rhinoplasty
  • Closed Rhinoplasty
  • A small incision is made under the nasal tip, between the nostrils. This approach gives the cosmetic surgeon greater access to the nasal structures, where he can then sculpt the nose into the desired shape.
  • Because of this increased access and more invasive nature, plastic surgeons will typically use this approach for patients requiring more extensive reshaping.
  • The resulting scars are hidden in the natural contours of the nose so that they are as inconspicuous as possible.
  • Incisions are made inside the nostril. This approach is most commonly used for patients who require only minor adjustments to the nasal structures.
  • The advantage of closed rhinoplasty is that there is no visible scarring after surgery; however, this approach may not be suitable for more extensive rhinoplasty procedures.
  • In certain cases, the nose can be reshaped non-surgically with dermal fillers, providing temporary improvements that last up to one to two years.
  • By strategically injecting a filler at certain points in the nose, a skilled cosmetic surgeon can smooth out bumps, reshape the nasal tip, and improve nasal symmetry.
  • For those who are undecided for a permanent, surgical nose job, this temporary, non-surgical approach can be a cost-effective and possible way for patients to “test-drive” a nose reshaping procedure before committing to a surgical rhinoplasty.

Our clinic’s approach to rhinoplasties is one that is fully patient-centric, with the patient’s wishes and facial harmony at the core. Dr Colin Tham will walk you through all your options and together formulate a plan that is in your best interest.
