Enhance the Appearance of Your Nose with Rhinoplasty

  1. 1. Enhance the Appearance of your Nose with Rhinoplasty
  2. 2. The nose is a defining facial feature and its shape can make a big difference to the way you look. Rhinoplasty helps improve the shape of your nose. Also known as a ‘nose job,’ rhinoplasty helps to improve nose form by reshaping the nasal support to achieve the desired aesthetic results. In addition to augmenting facial harmony, a nose surgery can also improve breathing function. Rhinoplasty surgery helps to improve the following conditions  Broken nose  Nasal obstruction and asymmetry  Nasal structural problems (from birth defects or due to injury)  Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge  Enlarged, drooping, upturned or hooked nasal tip  Nose size in relation to facial balance Besides improving nasal aesthetics, the can correct breathing problems caused by structural abnormalities in the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from trauma or birth defects. What Happens During Rhinoplasty? Both closed and open approaches are used for performing this plastic surgery procedure. In the closed approach, the incisions are hidden inside the nose. On the other hand, in the open approach, incisions are made across the columella (the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils). The skin covering the nasal bones and cartilage is lifted and the structure of the nose is reshaped. Rhinoplasty is often combined with “septoplasty” which addresses the septum of the nose. The changes made during the surgery helps alleviate breathing difficulties by aligning the septum in the nasal passage. This also helps achieve a more pleasing dorsal aesthetic line, providing a more harmonious between the nasal tip and the forehead. Septoplasty offers the following benefits  Achieves a pleasing dorsal aesthetic line  Opens the nasal air passage  Corrects nasal deviation
  3. 3. Combining both septoplasty and rhinoplasty can help men and women achieve a pleasing nasal appearance and also improve breathing problems. Before the Rhinoplasty Procedure The first step is to find a qualified plastic surgeon who is an expert in performing nose surgery. The surgeon will strive to understand patient goals and expectations at the initial consultation. The plastic surgeon will examine the external and internal appearance of the nose and breathing function. Based on this examination and the patient’s specific goals, the surgeon will develop a surgical plan that will provide aesthetically pleasing results. Some swelling, bruising and pain can be expected after the surgery, for which the plastic surgeon will prescribe appropriate medication. Patients would need to wear a surgical splint on the nose, which will be removed after a few days. Subtle changes may be seen in the first weeks following surgery, and results improve with time.
