About Rhinoplasty

Confidence and good looks are inseparable twins. No amount of spending on fashionable attire, expensive accessories, and makeup can give the confidence that comes with a striking face. The nose is a prominent part of that face. Plastic surgeon’s help can be taken for a “nose job” if the nose is the hurdle. In medical terminology, the procedure is called Rhinoplasty.

When Rhinoplasty

This cosmetic procedure is for people who have a

  • Asymmetrical nose
  • Wide nose
  • Small nose
  • Large nose
  • Bump on their nose bridge
  • Drooping nose tip or
  • Wide nostrils

However, Rhinoplasty also offers medical relief in case of patients experiencing breathing problems, or if they need to reconstruct the nose following some accident, or ailments such as cancer.

What does Rhinoplasty entail?

Rhinoplasty is an invasive surgery lasting for approximately 2 hours.

The plastic surgeon may

  • Add something to the nose using tissue grafts. The surgeons use tiny grafts of varying dimensions and shapes. Software tools are available for ensuring precision in these grafts. The grafts may be implanted as needed and where possible, to get the desired shape and size of the nose
  • Remove some parts of the nose by chiseling away nasal bone or cartilage. At times, both the bone as well as the cartilage may have to be reduced or shaped and
  • Modify some parts of the nose by a. Reshaping the bone/cartilage b. “Lifting the Skin”

Tools, such as Osteotome and Rasp, are used for removing the bone that is already there. “Rasp” is a filing tool, which the surgeon uses to file away the undesirable part of the bone. It is also useful or shaping the nose.

After completing the above procedures, the plastic surgeon uses some packing and closes the initial incision. This packing holds the grafts in place. In due course, tissue develops around it, thereby integrating it in the nose’ structure. Packing also brings down excessive swelling and bleeding. The surgeon uses tape to hold this packing in place. A casting ensures that the inserted grafts remain where they should be. Such casting also ensures that lifted skin also remains in place. After a few weeks, the body naturally accepts the new grafts and stretched skin.

A plastic surgeon can also offer temporary solutions. For this, the plastic surgeon uses fillers like Restylane or Juvederm.
