WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY?

Rhinoplasty is an operative or injectable way to correct deformities or imperfections in the shape of the nose. It also includes complex operations for complete restoration of the nose.

The human nose is a complex organ that is responsible for many tasks: from breathing to proper metabolism.

It has a complex structure of nasal and frontal bones, large, small, lateral and accessory cartilages, so various types of rhinoplasty affect all parts of the organ.

With the help of such an operation, the nose is proportional, more direct, thin, with a clearly defined bridge of the nose, neat wings and nostrils, a small tip.

Qualitatively performed rhinoplasty visually transforms a person, makes his facial features more harmonious, thinner, aristocratic. The problems of both aesthetic and medical nature are corrected, which can be seen in the photo “before and after” on the Internet.

Only qualified doctors can perform rhinoplasty – plastic surgeons with many years of experience. The fact is that nasal correction requires great responsibility from a specialist, otherwise, the risk of encountering an unsuccessful result is increased

FEATURES OF THE OPERATION

It should be noted that operative rhinoplasty involves the incision of a scalpel to model the shape in the open nasal cavity by moving or partially removing the cartilage.

The doctor must take responsibility for carrying out all stages of the operation.

The nose is the organ responsible for breathing, which indirectly affects the correct oxygen saturation of the blood and – accordingly – the metabolic processes throughout the body.

Modern methods of correction often combine not only aesthetic correction of the form but also the restoration of the right nasal breathing.

Rhinoplasty (nose plastic surgery)

For minor defects, it is recommended that the form is corrected with injections, not by surgery.

The essence of the operation

Closed rhinoplasty

As a minimally invasive technique for correcting the shape of the nose, closed surgery is most effective.
It is recommended to correct small defects of the shape, for example, the saddle tip of the nose.
Main advantages:
low odds of edema, low traumatism, minimal risk of complications.

The surgeon makes small incisions inside the nasal cavity, then sutures them. External skin is not affected.

Open rhinoplasty

Complex and requiring a surgeon a lot of experience and skill correction method. It is required for severe bone deformities after mechanical impact, lateral or upper curvatures when transplants are required. Also, the method is used for osteotomy.

In the crease between the nostrils, incisions are made, due to which the skin is separated from the cartilage. Then the surgeon makes the necessary manipulations.

Non-surgical (injection) rhinoplasty

The most modern and safe way to improve your appearance with contour rhinoplasty.
It is recommended to perform the procedures once every 1-2 years.

The cosmetologist uses injections of fillers – gel or liquid preparations based on hyaluronate. The substance fills the necessary cavities and corrects imperfections in the shape of the back, tip, nostrils or any irregularities.

INDICATIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS

Women tend to improve their appearance, and if they appear to be imperfect, they may resort to plastic surgery or injections of fillers.

Indications can be divided into two types – medical and aesthetic. Medical refers to:

  • Curved cartilaginous septum, making breathing difficult and provoking edema of the respiratory tract at temperature exposure;
  • Post-traumatic deformation of the shape, curvature or displacement of the cartilage;
  • Congenital defects that impede breathing.

Aesthetic indications are very conditional and are not direct indications for surgery, except for explicit cases of disproportion:

  • Wide nostrils or back;
  • A large tip of the nose (“potato”);
  • The existence of a pronounced hump;
  • The absence of a pronounced bridge of the nose;
  • Hooked nose, with a bent down tip;
  • Causelessness.

The operating types of rhinoplasty have a lot of contraindications:

  • acute infections;
  • malignant tumors;
  • herpes;
  • low blood coagulability;
  • acute rhinitis;
  • heart diseases;
  • pyelonephritis;
  • mental disorders.

Also, you can not adjust the shape of the nose during pregnancy and lactation, as well as during menstruation.

Analyze your attitude to appearance and decide whether or not an operation is required or you are ready to accept yourself with natural beauty.

PREPARATION FOR RHINOPLASTY

The operation is preceded by the preparatory period. A plastic surgeon should advise the patient and prepare him for surgery, discussing his wishes, examining his health condition, explaining the nuances of creating a “new” nose.

Before plastic surgery, a number of standard examinations should be performed, which include a general blood test and biochemistry, an ECG and a consultation of the therapist.

If the patient has no contraindications, then he is sent to a day hospital.

 

For 10-15 days before admission to the hospital, the client of the clinic needs to refrain from alcohol, smoking, heavy food, to lead a diet and sleep.

A few hours before the start, food and water are excluded – a violation of this rule can lead to negative consequences of surgery.

If it is planned to completely correct the form or correct serious defects, it is necessary to visit the consultation of an anesthesiologist before the rhinoplasty – a complex operation will be performed under general anesthesia and requires an examination for intolerance of the anesthetic components. Defects of the shape of the tip of the nose are corrected under local anesthesia.

To prevent the plastic from appearing so frightening, doctors recommend watching thematic videos on the Internet, reading more about rhinoplasty materials and adjusting to a positive result.

HOW IS THE OPERATION? (STAGES)

Operative types of rhinoplasty consist of several stages:

1. An anesthesiologist will administer a local anesthetic to the patient with minor surgery or make general anesthesia – in more complicated cases of cartilage deformation. Additional anesthesia may be performed to disconnect receptors.

2. In the area of the columella, between the nostrils, a thin incision is made with a scalpel and the operation itself begins – an open or closed type. In the first case, the surgeon releases the cartilage from the skin, in the second – does the necessary manipulations without temporary removal of the skin.

3. With the help of surgical instruments, the doctor corrects the defects discussed with the patient. If necessary, implants are inserted into the cartilaginous area or, on the contrary, a part of the tissue is removed. The average range of the operation time is 50-120 minutes.

4. After the procedure is completed, the seams and nose are closed with a fixing bandage. Non-operative versions of rhinoplasty for the correction of small areas of the nose require only local anesthesia or are performed without it, so the correction consists of three stages – preparatory, injecting and restorative. If necessary, the injection is repeated.

The most progressive way to correct defects in appearance is laser – this tool replaces the scalpel, reduces blood loss and promotes rapid tissue healing. Find out more about the nuances of the procedure on the advice of your plastic surgeon.

POSTOPERATIVE PERIOD (RECOMMENDATIONS OF DOCTORS)

  1. Rhinoplasty is one of the fastest plastic surgeries, taking in time from 1 to 3 hours, but the rehabilitation period lasts from two weeks to a month.
  2. After surgery due to damage to the capillaries, hematomas and edema remain. To ensure that the seams do not part, and the nose itself has come to the desired shape, within 10 days the patient should wear a bandage.
    In the nostrils inserted tampons, stopping the bleeding.
  3. You can not eat hot or hot food for a month, play sports and swimming, strain your face muscles.

Doctors recommend that their patients gently wash, not wetting the nose area and wearing clothes with zippers or buttons, so as not to be removed through the head.

Instead of the conclusion, it is necessary, to sum up: rhinoplasty in a number of cases, medical and aesthetic – necessary operation. Do it or not, if the shape of the nose has only minor defects – it’s up to the patient herself to decide on the clinic. The advice that can be given in this case is to weigh the pros and cons and turn to a specialist.
