Generally, rhinoplasty does not change the voice. Technically, rhinoplasty may narrow or open nasal passageway, hence people who underwent rhinoplasty may sound subtly more nasal or deeper.

After surgery, a splint will likely be placed inside your nose for support during initial healing, therefore, your nose may be stuffy and you may sound a little bit nasal.

An acoustic analysis suggested changes in the frequency and amplitude of certain sounds, which may be related to narrowing of the nasal cavity after rhinoplasty.

"The changes in surface area of nasal cavity may increase airflow resistance and cause an increase in sound absorption and a decrease in passing sound amplitude," according to the researchers.

The demand for rhinoplasty increases each year, so how concerned should you be about this voice change affecting you?

Based on the study’s findings, it appears that voice quality can change after the procedure, but they are subtle and may not be apparent to the general public. Trained listeners, and the patients themselves, may notice them more than others.

These changes should not cause any interference with a patient’s daily life. For instance, if you are a recreational singer, a rhinoplasty should not have much effect on the sound of your voice.

“In the majority of cases, a standard rhinoplasty will not change the voice much, if at all,” says Dr. Miller.

“For patients having substantial work done to their nose, there is a possibility it will alter their voice slightly, so just as with any other side effect that could arise from surgery, patients need to weigh that along with the positive benefits that result from a beautiful nose job procedure.”
