A straight perfectly carved nose adds to the beauty of a face. But many of us are not fortunate enough to possess a slender and chiseled nose, either by birth or due to some injury. The good news is that it is possible to achieve a perfect nose through rhinoplasty. The term rhinoplasty means “nose moulding” or “nose forming”, to change the appearance of the nose. The shape of the nose is transformed either by adding or removing a cartilage, grafting a tissue from another part of the body, or by implanting a synthetic material to change the shape of the nose.
Rhinoplasty is mainly performed for cosmetic reasons, when a nose is crooked, too long, too short, or deformed from birth or injury. Rhinoplasty can also be performed, when someone is suffering from breathing troubles which need immediate attention. The procedure is mostly performed at the hospital, outpatient department or a health clinic, depending upon the patient’s convenience.
Why Is Nose Surgery a Complex Cosmetic Procedure?
Nose reconstruction or rhinoplasty as it’s known, may sound easy to perform, but may lead to complications in extreme conditions, if precautions are not taken. Rhinoplasty is a complex surgical procedure not only because of its cosmetic value, but also due to the nasal or breathing problems that may manifest after surgery. The main challenge that doctors face while performing the surgery is trying to maintain the precision of the external features of the nose with the internal ones.
In extreme cases, a patient might have to go a for a revision rhinoplasty if first time rhinoplasty is unsuccessful.
This usually happens if the size of the nostrils is uneven or if the nasal septum or cartilage is too soft or too hard (leading to discomfort and breathing problems). Revision rhinoplasty is always harder than a primary so make sure you’re going to a surgeon who is very experienced in revision rhinoplasty surgery.
Widening the nasal bridge will involve reverse medial osteotomies and wider grafts being placed between the nasal bones to hold them open.
Revision rhinoplasty be done either through a “closed” or “open” approach. For instance, minor contour corrections can be performed via a “closed” technique. In closed rhinoplasty, only internal incisions (endonasal) are made for access to the nasal structures. Open rhinoplasty refers to the addition of an incision in the skin bridge between the two nostrils (columella) in order to lift up the nasal skin for more direct visualization of the structures to be altered. The decision to use either the closed or open approach in revision rhinoplasty is based on surgeon preference and each technique has its pros and cons.
Recovery time in revision rhinoplasty is the same as in primary rhinoplasty, except for the frequent check-ups with the doctors needed for nose structure analysis. In order to avoid any further rates of revision rhinoplasty, it is advisable to approach a doctor who is specialized in revision rhinoplasty and can give a you a detailed treatment orientation plan.
