Rhinoplasty Melbourne

What you need to know about Rhinoplasty

Your nose is one of the more prominent features on your face; it provides the focal point around which the rest of your facial features are built. It’s not uncommon for both men and women to be self-conscious about the size or shape of their nose. At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we understand that the decision to undergo rhinoplasty can often be an emotional one.

Dr Allan Kalus, our respected rhinoplasty Melbourne surgeon, knows that rhinoplasty surgery is not just about changing the shape of your nose but also about improving your self-esteem and confidence. To learn more about our approach to rhinoplasty, contact us today.

Your Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is not only about making the nose smaller, but also involves restoring the delicate balance that exists between the nose and the other facial features. Our artful approach to nose reshaping aligns your nose with the rest of your face to achieve a natural-looking and beautiful result.

Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Allan Kalus, is knowledgeable and experienced, having performed thousands of rhinoplasty Melbourne surgeries over the years. His advanced techniques allow him to control precisely the profile of the nose, the length of the nose, and the size and shape of the nasal tip to produce the optimum nose for your face. He also specialises in lip enhancement Melbourne wide. Computer imaging enables precise planning and allows you to visualise your result before committing to surgery.

Our Approach to Rhinoplasty

We specialise in closed rhinoplasty. Due to his skill and extensive experience, Dr Allan Kalus is able to perform the entire nose reshaping procedure from incisions made inside the nose. As a result, there are no visible scars!


Our advanced method of nose reshaping also enables us to avoid the use of nasal packs, so that you can breathe normally soon after your surgery and have minimal post-operative swelling. Open rhinoplasty results in a visible scar at the base of the nose as well as prolonged swelling of the nasal tip following surgery. It is our opinion that open rhinoplasty should be reserved for cases with specific problems of the nasal tip that cannot be corrected using our closed method.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Having performed several thousand Rhinoplasty procedures, Mr Kalus is often asked: “What happens if I am not happy with the result?”. In capable hands, complications are rare following Rhinoplasty surgery. However, because the nose is highly visible in the centre of the face, even the slightest asymmetry or unevenness can be very distressing. Some people are very conscious of their nose and this self-consciousness can linger after surgery. The age of the “Selfie” has added to this problem!

Rhinoplasty For Two Generations

It is a rare privilege for a plastic surgeon to help two generations of the same family! We were thrilled when we recently received this photograph of mother and daughter proudly displaying their “perfect noses” during the daughter’s wedding. Mr. Kalus was the fortunate surgeon who had the privilege to operate on both mother and daughter and provide them both with the added self-assurance and confidence that rhinoplasty can bring.
