What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is the most daunting cosmetic procedure as it is 3 dimensional and requires several levels of expertise.
Your nose is a prominent feature of your face and contributes to its unique character. If you are feeling self conscious about its shape or size, you may be thinking about a “nose job”.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure to reshape the nose and enhance facial harmony. This usually can be achieved by reducing or increasing the size, removing a hump, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, narrowing the span of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip.
Types of Rhinoplasty
A : Primary Rhinoplasty
“Are you A candidate”
Depending on the type of problem and the experience of your surgeon, Rhinoplasty is performed with different approaches.
-Closed nasal surgery
In closed Rhinoplasty, a few small incisions are made inside the nose in order to visualize the bone and cartilage. This method require more precision, experience and skill. As well, the recovery time of closed nose surgery is less. For surgery in this method, no incision is made in the outer part of the nose and all the necessary changes are made through the nostrils.
-Open Nasal surgery
In open Rhinoplasty, incisions are made in and out of the nostrils. In this case, the surgeon has more access to the structure of the nose and can easily shape the nose by shaving the bone and shaping the cartilage, however, a simple scar is left and surgical and healing times are longer.
Nasal tip surgery corrects the shape of the tip of the nose only. The width, size, or height of the tip of the nose can be reshaped, the bones of the upper nasal are left intact.
B : Non surgical Rhinoplasty
The nose is one of the body’s visible organs, making its aesthetics important. While many believe that Rhinoplasty requires surgery, there are non-surgical methods to enhance the nose’s appearance. By using injectable gel, one can alter the nose’s appearance without undergoing surgery. Notably, the patient remains awake and alert during the procedure, even holding a mirror to assist the doctor. This level of patient involvement enables direct input into the nose’s shaping. The results of a nonsurgical nose job become immediately apparent during the procedure. The final shape will be visible when one gel is injected and sculpted by the doctor.
In this method, you do not need much of a recovery. You can also resume your daily activities immediately after the injection is completed.
C : Revision Rhinoplasty
Revision Rhinoplasty is for a person who has had Rhinoplasty before and doesn’t have the result they had wished for. They may have problems such as breathing difficulty, olfactory disorder, deformity of the nose, etc.
