INSECURE ABOUT YOUR NOSE?
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery throughout the world. Used for both aesthetic and functional reasons, it can be used to restore deformities, heal fractures or cracks, solve breathing problems, and create a more appealing aesthetic appearance.
How is the right rhinoplasty decided upon?
The first step of this treatment involves a comprehensive medical examination, where you can express your complaints while our expert doctors assess the nose. After this examination, the appropriate course of action will be chosen, with the suitability of the targeted nose structure related to other facial aspects. Using specialised software, the ideal nose structure will be shown to the patient via digital approximations. You and your doctor will then decide on the best approach to help give you your dream nose.
How is rhinoplasty administered?
Rhinoplasty is administered in either an open structure or a closed structure, the appropriate method being determined during the initial medical examination. Open structure rhinoplasty is the preferred method, as it allows the surgeon to operate visually and allows for easier intervention to the nasal cavity. Rhinoplasty can be administered to help rectify several abnormalities, including:
Fixing humped bones and other intranasal elements.
Rasping the tip of the nose to reduce length.
Lifting and volumising the nasal tip.
What should patients avoid after rhinoplasty?
During the postoperative period, the patient should protect their nose and be patient throughout the healing process. They will need to be dressed regularly while any painkillers, anti-inflammatories and anti-edematous medications should be taken as prescribed.
Who can have rhinoplasty?
Anyone with a stable health status who can receive general anaesthesia without problems is suitable for rhinoplasty. Suitability is generally determined during a formal medical examination.
Are the results of rhinoplasty permanent?
All rhinoplasty procedures are generally permanent. However, revision operations can be performed if necessary.
How long does the procedure take?
Rhinoplasty surgeries generally last between one and two hours.
When can the patient move on with their social and business life?
Patients can be discharged on the same day as the procedure, or the day after. Patients may feel a dull ache following the surgery, which can be managed by taking any prescribed painkillers. Should any bruising form, this should fade a few days after the surgery. Any swelling will also slowly decrease and will be gone after two weeks.
Sleeping with the head slightly elevated, and applying a cold compress will also be beneficial. Nasal casts will generally be removed after one week. However, it is not uncommon for casts to stay in place longer.
BENEFITS OF RHINOPLASTY?
Nose Surgery can be used to open up your airways for better breathing. Opening the airways of the nasal cavity also assists in enhancing breathing while sleeping, allowing for a full night's sleep that increases overall health and improves a patient's mood.
