Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as nose job is a surgical procedure to restore, reconstruct and aesthetically enhance the form of the nose. Rhinoplasty is performed to correct congenital defects, nasal deviations, respiratory problems as well as for purely aesthetic purposes.

Rhinoplasty is beneficial for people having saddle nose, humped nose, depressed nose, nasal deviation, bulbous tip, wide nostrils, etc. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who donot smoke and have a good general health. They should not have any life-threatening diseases or medical conditions.

Types of Rhinoplasty:

  1. Surgical Rhinoplasty
    There are two methods – closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty.

    Procedure: The surgeon creates a functional, aesthetic, and facially proportionate nose by separating the nasal skin and the soft tissues from the osseo -cartilaginous nasal framework, correcting them as required for form and function, suturing the incisions, and applying either a package or a stent, or both, to immobilize the corrected nose to ensure the proper healing of the surgical incision. Rhinoplasty may be done using general or local anesthesia. It is usually done as an outpatient procedure but sometimes requires a 1-night stay in the hospital or surgery center.

  2. Non-surgical rhinoplasty
    This is a medical procedure in which injectable fillers such as collagen are used to alter and shape a person’s nose without invasive surgery. The procedure fills in depressed areas on the nose, lifting the angle of the tip or smoothing the appearance of bumps on the bridge. The procedure does not alter nose size, though it can be used to correct some functional birth defects.

What to expect after Surgery:

  • The splint and bandaging around your nose will be removed in about a week.
  • Your face will feel puffy and the area around your eyes and nose will be bruised and swollen for several days. Cold compresses can help minimize the swelling and reduce pain. Your doctor may also recommend pain medicine. It takes about 10 to 14 days before most of the swelling and bruising improves.
  • You may need to keep your head elevated and relatively still for the first few days after surgery. It may be several weeks before you can return to strenuous activities.

Prognosis:

  • The results of rhinoplasty may be minor or significant, depending on what kind of correction you want. It is important that you and your plastic surgeon agree on the goals of the surgery.
  • If your expectations are realistic and your plastic surgeon shares them, he or she will probably be able to give you the results you want.
  • The results of rhinoplasty are permanent, although subsequent injury or other factors can alter the nose’s appearance.
  • Cosmetic surgery should only be done on a fully developed nose. Complete development has usually occurred by age 15 or 16 in females and by age 17 or 18 in males. If surgery is done before this time, continued development of the nose can alter the surgical results and possibly cause complications.

There are very few risks associated with Rhinoplasty. Some complications associated with the procedure include risks of bleeding, failure of rhinoplasty, scarring, adhesion formation, etc. All the possible side-effects and complications will be explained in detail to our patients prior to the surgery.
