An incision is made inside the nose and sometimes a very short incision is made across the columella. The surgeon then reduces the wedges of the skin from the base of the nose, if the base of the nose is to narrowed or the nostrils are to be reduced. If the nose needs to be built up, silicone implant or cartilages from some other site are used to build the nose.

The surgeon then re drapes this newly built nose with the skin and soft tissue. A splint is usually placed on the nose to stabilize the newly formed nose for about a week, and you would be advised to not make it wet.
