Rhinoplasty, also known as a ‘nose job’ is a medical term that refers to the surgery used to reconstruct or transform the structure of the nose. Undergoing a rhinoplasty treatment can change your life and improve your self-esteem. Some patients undergo the procedure to correct birth defects and injuries from accidents.

The majority choose to undergo the procedure simply to improve the aesthetical appeal of their faces. Marylin Monroe is a shining example of how a rhinoplasty procedure can improve anyone’s life. Marylin underwent a procedure to straighten her nose and transformed from the girl next door into a superstar model overnight!

When is the Rhinoplasty Procedure Advisable?

Almost anyone can benefit from the aesthetical improvements in straightness and symmetry that are accomplished with a nose job. Most of us are born with a natural lump in our noses that detracts from the smooth contours we associate with beauty. For some patients, the procedure is a matter of medical necessity to alleviate difficulties with breathing. Patients who suffer deformities from injury, infections, or tumors are also prime candidates for this type of correctional or reconstructive surgery.

Overview of the Rhinoplasty Procedure

 

Consultation

At the consultation, our English-speaking specialist surgeon will discuss the goals of your rhinoplasty procedure and pinpoint the elements of your nose that may benefit from adjustments. You will have the benefit of reviewing the results of his previous surgeries, documented with before and after photos, to plan out the types of changes that you wish to obtain.

Our specialist surgeon is profoundly educated and experienced. He will know exactly what techniques to apply for obtaining the shapes, straightness, and narrowness you desire in a basic nose job. When it comes to reconstructive surgery, he will explain what limitations there may be and how to maximize the tissue available.

His goal is to construct a functional and aesthetically pleasing nose that you love.

Treatment

Rhinoplasty procedures can be performed using local anesthetic or with general anesthesia under sedation. It is an outpatient procedure that normally takes 2 to 3- hours but in some circumstances can take longer. The general consensus among plastic surgeons is that rhinoplasty is one of the most complex procedures because it involves both technical skill and artistic vision.

After all, your nose is the central focal point of your face and, therefore, requires the utmost in care. A variety of surgical techniques must be meticulously planned to determine what parts of the nasal structure are to be augmented, altered or reduced.

For many years, reduction was the sole method for smoothing out the contours of the nose. Nowadays, reduction and augmentation are used simultaneously to shape the nose without restricting aspiration. Bone and cartilage grafts are often performed by removing tissue from the nasal septum in primary procedures. “Osteotomies” is a medical term for the controlled fracturing process that is used to narrow and straighten the nose.

The incisions are typically hidden inside the nostrils or limited to a small incision at the base of the nose. At the completion of the surgery, the nose may be put in a cast or simply taped up. It can also be packed with supportive material to aid in healing.

Recovery

During the recovery period, a splint may be applied to the nose for up to a full week. Although some swelling and discoloration of the skin may occur around the eyes, it will improve after the third day. Strenuous exercise and activities should be avoided for the first 6-weeks as the bones and cartilage heal.
