Hello! I hope you'd help me!
I had a nose surgery 10 years ago. And i don't like the result, would like to do it again, but this time i actually know what i want.
I have a wide nose bone, big nostrils, and there is a small buldge on my nose. It is not actually visible now, but it would be visible after surgery..
I want a small, beautiful nose, but have several fears. One of them is that i woud not like the result, and the main fear is that i may loss the sense of smell. Because i only feel smells by one side, i have a fear to loss it at all. May it happen or there is no reason to worry?

previous rhinoplasty may not be related loss of smell. It can be investigated by an ENT surgeon. Howver,, if you ar unhappy with the appearance of your nose, something can be achieved. If you send your pictures with front and side views, we can evaluate your condition.

best regards

An aesthetic septorhinoplasty is usually restricted to the external part of your nose (this what you call "nose"). The smell receptor nerves are lokalised far away from it, in the internal part of the nose (hidden in your skull), so they normally can not be affected by this type of operation.

I'm a plastic surgeon for nearly 26 years with a lot of experience in the field of rhinoplasty.I have not seen even one patient complaining of smell loss.
The cribiriform plate which is responsible for smell is out of reach of rhinoplasty.Dr Farahvash

Dear,
You can get excellent results after your Rhinoplasty. Your wide nostrils, broad nasal bones, and hump on your nose can be corrected. We use Khawajas Simplified Rhinoplasty under local anesthesia. You can go home, two hours after your procedure, and there is minor swelling, and no black eyes. There are no bandages, and in most cases, no stitches, which need removal later on. Our results in the last 25 years of Rhinoplasty surgery, have been excellent, with a very high patient satisfaction rate. None of our patients, have ever complained about loss of smell after Rhinoplasty.

Best Regards

I think this risk is one you hafe to share. It is possible, that you could loose parts of your nosstril smell potension. Afte a while it will came back, at least a part of it.
