Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping is quite a popular cosmetic procedure which aims at correcting and reconstructing the nose by modifying the bone or cartilage of the nose. It can also be done for medical reasons, i.e., to fix breathing issues or to upgrade its functions altogether.

Who Should Consider Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is highly an individual procedure. You may want to consider reshaping your nose if you wish to:

  • Increase or decrease the size in order to make it symmetrical
  • Straighten or refine the bridge of your nose
  • Treat a broken nose due to injury or accident
  • Treat breathing problems
However, if you are not satisfied with the primary rhinoplasty, then you can go for revision rhinoplasty as well.

Choose The Right Doctor

A successful plastic surgery solely depends upon the right choice of the doctor. While choosing a doctor you must make sure that he or she fulfills the below parameters:

  • Board-Certification

  • Extensive Experience

  • Positive Reviews

  • Sharing Real Results

  • Understands Your Case and Expectations

  • Good Aesthetic Eye

Your Journey with CosmeSurge

Consultation

During your consultation, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss why you need the surgery, and what you hope to achieve. You will also discuss the process of the surgery and everything that will be involved until your recovery period. You should be completely open with the doctor about your expectations, concerns and habits. Your medical history will be evaluated to determine candidacy for the surgery. The doctor will also take photos of your nose so that you can see the difference after the surgery.

There are certain guidelines that the doctor will advise you to follow before the surgery, like maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regularly, stop smoking at least three weeks before the surgery, to strictly avoid anti-inflammatory drugs or medicines having aspirin so that the risk of excess bleeding is reduced.

Surgery

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia. Rhinoplasty is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. The type of procedure to be used depends upon your problem and expectation out of the surgery. There are different reasons for performing a nose job and hence the mechanism/style of the surgery also differs accordingly:

  • Treating Nose Bridge: If the bridge of the nose is going to be operated, the hump causing bone, or the cartilage is withdrawn. Afterward, the remaining pieces of the broken nose are connected or conjoined closely to narrow down the nose.
  • Treating Nose Tip: In this case, closed or open Rhinoplasty is employed through which the cartilage supporting or assisting the tips from the downward direction is slightly removed or reshaped and aligned.
  • Treating Nose Length: The septum is adjusted, and its size is decreased, and hence, the tip is shrunk, which eventually leads to the overall size reduction of the nose.
  • Treating Nose Width: In this case, width is adjusted through narrowing it down predominantly by breaking the bone and adjusting its position.
  • Augmentation Rhinoplasty: The contour of a flat bridge or tip can be altered by adjusting bone, cartilage, or through an implant. Well, the bone or cartilage can be utilized from the nose or the other places such as a rib, hip, or ear. This process is known as Augmentation Rhinoplasty or Additional Rhinoplasty.
  • Septum Rhinoplasty: Sometimes, your nose gets flattened post injury or an accident hence buckling up the septum, which leads to severe breathing issues. It is fixed through a single surgery, or sometimes additional surgery is required.

After Surgery

Following the surgery, a splint and/or packing may be placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during initial healing. After a week, the cast is painlessly removed, and it generally takes two weeks for most of the swelling and discoloration around the eyes to disappear. Numbness of the upper teeth and mild nasal blockage may be experienced for a few days to a few weeks. It will take around 2 - 4 weeks to completely heal from rhinoplasty surgery, however you can go back to work within 1-2 weeks.

During this time, you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to a more permanent outcome.

After Care

In order to have successful long-lasting results it is important to follow the below:

  • Take pain medication as per prescription.
  • Do not blow your nose, and do not sneeze through your nose at all and instead cough it out.
  • Strenuous exercise will not be allowed until the six weeks after the surgery.
  • Contact your doctor immediately if you experience severe breathing problems.
  • Do not lift heavy objects for several weeks and avoid sexual intercourse for two weeks.
  • It is important to attend the follow-up appointments with your doctor to keep your track of your progress.
