How long does #Rhinoplasty (nose) surgery take?

The time it takes to complete rhinoplasty surgery depends on multiple factors and will vary from person to person. Generally, minimal changes to the nose don’t require more than about 1 to 1.5 hours, and more complicated changes can take up to 3 or 4 hours. Open type procedures also take longer than closed ones, as they require extra cutting on the outside of the nose as well as the inside. The amount of grafting that needs to be done also adds to the time the procedure will take, so lengthening or widening the nose will require more time. Procedures that are done to fix breathing issues, rather than for cosmetic reasons are also more time consuming. The efficiency and rhythm of the actual surgeon and their team can add to or take away from the total amount of time spent on the procedure.
