Rhinoplasty

 

 

 

Meeting harmony

Rhinoplasty (Greek: ῥίςrhis, nose + πλάσσειν plassein, to shape), a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose, by resolving nasal trauma (blunt, penetrating, blast), congenital defect, respiratory impediment, and a failed primary rhinoplasty. In our clinic, when performing rhinoplasty, we perform art, always with respect to your unique beauty and facial harmony.

Understanding Rhinoplasty

The plastic surgical correction of congenital and acquired abnormalities of the nose restores functional and aesthetic properties by the surgeon’s manipulations of the nasal skin, the subcutaneous (underlying) cartilage-and-bone support framework, and the mucous membrane lining. Traditional rhinoplasty procedures involve incisions made along the inside of the nostrils. This allows for scarring that is barely visible, if visible at all, to others. The nasal bone and cartilage is separated and reshaped to meet your ultimate treatment goals. Incisions are then closed and a splint is added to the nose to help it retain its new shape. In some cases gauze may be packed into the nostrils temporarily to hold the septum in position and control bleeding. Nose sculpting surgery generally takes about two hours or less to complete under general anesthesia. This procedure can be performed as an outpatient.

Contraindications

Contraindications to rhinoplasty include severe concomitant medical problems. While not absolute contraindications, the risk of postoperative complications is increased in cigarette smokers and patients with hypertension and diabetes. Patients are typically asked to abstain from taking aspirin or other blood thinners for at least one week prior to surgery.

Post-surgery recovery

Elevation of the head is crucial for at least a day following rhinoplasty, and any heavy lifting or strenuous activity should be avoided for at least two weeks. It is imperative that the nose be protected from potential harm in the weeks after surgery. Patients should expect swelling and bruising in the nasal area for 7-10 days after the procedure; however, swelling should be about 75 percent diminished after about a month. Any discomfort during recovery can be alleviated with medication. Patients should not blow their nose for at least a week after nose surgery in order to facilitate the healing process. Nasal packing will be removed after 2 days, and normal daily activities can typically resume after about a week. Send out fragrances of confidence and power.
