What is Rhinoplasty surgery?
Rhinoplasty is referred to as “Nose job” or “nose reshaping” process. This process enhance the proportion of the nose as compared to the face of the patient. It also helps in treating any kind of breathing problems in case they occur due to structural differences.
What rhinoplasty surgery can do?
- Nose size with respect to the face
- Nose width at the bridge or a dislocation of the nostrils
- Humps or bumps on the nose bridge
- Nasal asymmetry
The major aim of the rhinoplasty surgery is to bring balance to your face not bring exact symmetry. This can only be achieved if you choose out of the best nose job surgeons.
This surgery is not a single process but inclusive of many steps like:
- 1. Anesthesia
The choice is going to be yours that is you can choose out of local or general anesthesia. This is done for the comfort of the patient during the surgery.
- 2. The incision
Rhinoplasty can be performed in two ways, either in a closed procedure or in an open procedure. In case of a closed procedure the incisions are hidden and in the other case, they are across the columella which is a thin strip of tissue separating the nostrils.
- 3. Nose structure reshaping
During the reshaping of the nose structure, an extra cartilage is either taken out or a cartilage is grafted. Commonly the cartilage from the septum is used for this purpose or it is taken from an ear. Rarely it is taken from the rib cage section.
- 4. Deviated septum correction
In case the septum deviates it is straightened and the projection is reduced to improve the breathing process.
- 5. Closing the incision
Once the nasal defect is treated, the nasal skin and tissues are draped back onto the nose and the incision is closed.
- 6. Result time
After this surgery, you can see the proper and desired proportion of the nose.
It is your face and it is very important to choose the best one for the job. You can easily read about the doctors and then choose the one you are looking for.
