Rhinoplasty

The nose is the most significant feature of the face. The whole face becomes less attractive when the nose is out of scale.
Rhinoplasty, also known as a "nose job," is a surgical procedure that reshapes the nose by lowering or raising its size, eliminating a bump, altering the tip or bridge shape, or narrowing the nostril span.

The aim of rhinoplasty surgery:

  1. Is to improve airflow through the nose,
  2. Improve the shape of the nose on the outside, 
  3. Straighten and repair a bent or fractured nose, 
  4. Improve facial equilibrium and symmetry.
  5. improve nasal skeleton, which is made up of bone and cartilage, is reshaped during surgery.

Rhinoplasty is a procedure that involves cutting, inserting, and reshaping bone and cartilage to give the nose a more flattering appearance without losing its work. Deformities caused by trauma or congenital abnormalities, as well as physical issues such as trouble breathing through the nose, may be treated. At your initial appointment, you will be informed about the two major forms of rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is used to make the nose thinner, while augmentation rhinoplasty adds weight to the nose or makes it bigger.

Rhinoplasty surgery is usually conducted under general anaesthesia in a day care centre, but it can also be done with local anaesthetics in some cases. Small incisions are made inside and around the nose to examine the tissues, cartilage, and bones. The surgeon extracts or attaches tissues after thoroughly examining the bones and cartilage in order to obtain the required surgical outcomes. Tissues from other parts of the body should be transplanted to the nose, or fillers can be used instead. Any tissues are stretched over the nose to give it final form after the surgeon has successfully positioned and arranged the tissues. A splint (a brace used to immobilise and shield a portion of the body) is then used to stabilise the new form or structure until the nose heals.

Rhinoplasty may be performed both open and closed. An external incision is made in the columella (the region between the nostrils) during an open rhinoplasty, while other incisions are made across the nostrils, through the nose, during a closed rhinoplasty. The only distinction between the two methods is what the surgeon can see through treatment and how the cartilages and bone of the nose are altered. One of the advantages of a closed rhinoplasty is that there is a very low risk of noticeable scarring since all incisions are internal, and there is less postoperative swelling.

The duration of the operation varies depending on the particular nose and the amount of refinement needed. Since the nose is an organ that both gives structure to the face and provides function through breathing. The appointment process starts with a review of the basic problems and questions you have about your nose's appearance. At this time, any technical issues are addressed.
