As the nose is a very prominent feature of the face, the shape and size of it has a great impact on a person’s appearance and self-esteem. Being unhappy with the appearance your nose can cause great distress and often, a rhinoplasty is the solution to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Rhinoplasty is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose and enhances the proportions and facial harmony. This procedure may also correct breathing problems caused by structural defects in the nose.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure most commonly carried out to:
- alter the hump at the bridge of the nose
- reshape the tip of the nose
- change the length of the nose
- change the width of the nose
- change the width of the nostrils.
- correct breathing problems
When planning rhinoplasty your surgeon will consider your other facial features, the skin on your nose and your preference and what you would like to change.
How is rhinoplasty performed?
At WorldClinica we use the latest innovations offered in our branch of technology and science. In the past few years rhinoplasty techniques have advanced considerably. One of the new technologies in the field of rhinoplasty is Piezo rhinoplasty, also referred to as Ultrasonic rhinoplasty.
In traditional rhinoplasty surgeries, when the nose bone and sidewalls are shaped with the support of hammer and chisel, they become traumatized. This results in increased edema and bruises after procedure. In piezo rhinoplasty surgeries, on the other hand, ultrasonic devices create vibrations in tissue by using high speed sound waves. These vibrations cause gentle breaking apart of tissue surfaces to remove surface irregularities and cut tissues. With this method, it is possible to avoid damage to the underlying structures. Thus, by using ultrasonic vibrations in a very targeted and precise way to reshape the bone, damage is kept to a minimum. Piezo rhinoplasty provides a less painful recovery and surgery, in contrast to traditional rhinoplasty.
Who is a candidate for rhinoplasty?
While most people can undergo a rhinoplasty, there are some factors that can determine whether you are an ideal candidate for this procedure or not:
- Your facial growth is complete
- You are physically healthy
- Your current nose makes you self-conscious or unhappy
- You have realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.
Advantages of rhinoplasty surgery
There are many benefits of rhinoplasty surgery. In general, most procedures are performed to either improve appearance by changing the size and shape of the nose or to improve an issue caused by a structural abnormality or injury. Some of the more specific benefits are the following:
- Increase or decrease the size of the nose. Reshape the nostrils. Reduce the nasal tip and the bridge.
- Enhance the balance and harmony between other facial features.
- Improve breathing and snoring
- Improve self-confidence
- Solve sinus problems
- Repair a broken nose
Disadvantages of rhinoplasty surgery
While most rhinoplasty procedures are problem-free, there are potential side effects and risks of this procedure just like with any other surgery. Choosing a qualified surgeon will significantly reduce the side effects associated with rhinoplasty.
Some of the most common side effects of the rhinoplasty surgery include:
- Some pain and bruising
- Anesthesia risk
- Unsatisfactory appearance
Recovery and results
Immediately after nose surgery you will notice swelling around the nose, but it should largely subside in a few weeks, however it may take some months for the residual swelling to resolve completely. The nose splint that is placed on patient’s nose to protect it after the surgery, will be removed a week after the procedure. Regular daily activities may be resumed a week after surgery.
It isn’t until a full year after surgery, that nose reshaping results are truly definitive. You’ll, however, be enjoying positive improvements in your nose’s shape long before a year.
