Rhinoplasty

Nosey issues

Rhinoplasty or nose job has long been used by the celebrities to enhance their looks. The procedure has gained both popularity and acceptance in the common man’s world too. People who are desirous of changing the shape of their nose can achieve it through rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can help in improving the cartilage, bone or skin of the nose.

Rhinoplasty rules

The surgery can help in the following cases-

  • Narrowing the width at either end

  • Asymmetrical nose

  • Rectifying the nose size in relation to the facial size.

  • Rectification of drooping, hooked or upturned nose

  • Nose with humps

  • Wide or upturned nostrils

Types of Rhinoplasty

Two types of Rhinoplasty are there –open and closed. It is at the disposal of the surgeon which one to opt for.

Open /external Rhinoplasty involves making a small incision across the columella. After this step, the nasal skin is folded upwards and gives the surgeon full access to the entire area. It enables the surgeon to create symmetry to the best possible extent.

Closed/Endonasal Rhinoplasty

In it, all the incisions are made inside the nose and the columella is left untouched. Although the surgeon doesn’t get as much access as the open approach, there are fewer scars in this surgery.

Procedure

  • First of all, the sugar levels of the patient are checked and local anaesthesia is administered.

  • Incisions are made whether a closed or open approach is being used

  • The shape of the nose is changed by removing bones if it is big. If it is small, the grafts can be taken from other parts of the body. Septum or ears are the preferred choices.

  • The septum is rectified as much as possible if it is damaged.

  • After closing the incisions, the nose is given the appropriate shape and skin is fitted accordingly.

Post-surgical care

  • Post surgery, you will experience swelling and redness. The painkilling medication will provide the desired relief. The surgeon will also be providing a special bandage which will be effective in protecting the nose. You will have to be patient as the new shape you desire will take some time to come up. You need to maintain proper hygiene and look out for any signs of infection. It is also essential to take the medicines according to the doctor’s advice. Go for regular follow-ups and immediately consult the doctor in case of any signs of infection show up.
