Nose Reshaping / Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgery used to change the shape and size of the nose in order to which improves the overall appearance of a person’s face by surgically altering the nose. Nose job can be combined with septal corrections.

Rhinoplasty Overview
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure which is usually performed in order to improve the function or the appearance of a person’s nose. This surgical procedure can reduce or increase the size of person’s nose as well as modify its shape.

Rhinoplasty can change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. This surgery may also correct an aesthetically unpleasing nose, birth defects, injury caused by an accident, or some breathing problems.

Not all rhinoplasty is performed for cosmetic reasons; rhinoplasty can correct structural abnormalities. One of the most common conditions that can be corrected with this surgery is a deviated septum, which can lead to breathing problems, chronic stuffiness, post-nasal drip and even snoring.

Rhinoplasty can be performed to meet aesthetic goals (cosmetic surgery) or for reconstructive purposes to correct trauma, birth defects or breathing problems (reconstructive surgery). Rhinoplasty can be combined with other surgical procedures such to enhance the aesthetic results that the patient can obtain.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common types of plastic surgery procedures and the most common type of facial plastic surgery today.

Closed Rhinoplasty
One of the most common techniques is called “closed rhinoplasty.” In a closed rhinoplasty, all of the incisions used for the surgery are hidden inside the nostrils. This, of course, if a benefit because it means that the scars will be entirely invisible to the casual observer. Although this surgery does not offer quite as much freedom to the surgeon as an open rhinoplasty, it still offers a number of possibilities. For some patients, this surgery provides them with everything that they need.

Open Rhinoplasty
The open technique is a procedure that has more incisions then the closed technique and the incisions are external where as the closed incisions are internal. In the open technique the surgeon cuts the columella which separates the nostrils and that is where the tissues are located. Also, more patients have open technique performed on them when they have previously had nose surgery.

The patient returns home after the rhinoplasty. You will require cold compresses for 1 or 2 days after surgery followed by alternating hot and cold compresses for 1 or 2 additional days. Most people choose to remain home for a week, although it is safe to be outdoors. If there are external sutures, they are usually removed 4 to 5 days after surgery. The external cast is removed usually after one week of the surgery. The bruising usually lasts two weeks. External splints are removed in about a week time.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty
The benefits of rhinoplasty can be enormous! When we improve our physical appearance, we tend to feel more confident, whether in social interactions or career paths, and this is true of both males and females. Rhinoplasty can improve a person’s overall look and how they are also perceived by others to give a stronger confidence.
