Simple rhinoplasty: the patient only requires a nose amendment Complex rhinoplasty: where the condition is accompanied by problems in the nose, whether congenital problems or fractures or as a result of mistakes from a previous operation Closed rhinoplasty (without surgery): the procedure does not need cracks in the nasal septum
WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY
Rhinoplasty, which is referred to as "nose function" or "nose reshaping" by patients, enhances the harmony of the face and the proportions of the direction of your nose, can also correct poor breathing caused by structural defects of the nose.
What can be cured in the process of rhinoplasty
Nose size in relation to facial balance
The width of the nose or the size and position of the gills
Nasal tip maximized or swollen, drooping, inverted
Gills that are large, wide or upside down
Asymmetry of the nose
Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a very personal process. You must do it yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to contain any kind of perfect image.
You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if:
Your nose is too big or too small
Your nose does not seem suitable for the rest of your face
Your nose is crooked, badly, or out of alignment
You have a stuffy nose inside your nose and have trouble breathing
You have a birth defect that you want to improve
You want improvement, not perfection, in the look of your nose
What are the steps for rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty includes the following steps:
Medicines are administered for your convenience during surgery and options include local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best option for you.
A rhinoplasty is performed using either a closed procedure, where the cracks are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, which is the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nose.
Through these cracks, the skin that covers the bones of the nose and cartilage is gently raised, allowing access to remodel the nose structure.
Reshaping the nose structure:
A large nose may be greatly reduced by removing bone or cartilage, and nose surgery may sometimes require the addition of a cartilage patch.
Most commonly, cartilage is used from the septum, which is the section in the middle of the nose, or from the cartilage of the ear or rarely a section of cartilage of the ribs can be used.
Trapezoid barrier correction
If the septum deviates, it can be straightened and projections inside the nose to improve breathing.
Closing the notch:
Once the primary structure of the nose is carved in the desired shape, the skin and nasal tissues are reshaped and the incisions are closed, additional cracks can be placed in the natural wrinkles of the gills to resize.
For a few days, splints and coated gauze may support the nose when it begins to heal.
How can I prepare for rhinoplasty?
When preparing for rhinoplasty, you may be asked to:
Obtain special analyzes
Take some medications or adjust your current medications
Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
What should I expect during a rhinoplasty procedure?
While restoring the rhinoplasty procedure, a splint or gauze may be placed inside your nose and a splint or dressings placed outside to support and protect new structures during the initial recovery.
You will be given specific instructions that may include:
How to care for the surgical place
Medicines to be applied or taken orally to help with healing and reduce the risk of infection
Specific concerns to look for in the surgical location or in your general health
When to follow up with a plastic surgeon.
