Rhinoplasty Overview

Rhinoplasty has emerged as a powerful plastic operation that improves the nose appearance completely. It can modify the bone which is the upper portion of the nose as well as the lower part of the nose which is the cartilage surgically. Usually, the operation is performed to:

  • Changing the size of the nose.
  • Straightening the bridge of the nose.
  • Eliminating the humps and depressions over the bridge of the nose.
  • Reshaping the nasal tip.
  • Narrowing the nostrils.
  • Treating breathing problems, such as deviated septum.

Here you have the most common nose job operations:

1. Open rhinoplasty

An open nose job is a type of rhinoplasty that provides wide access to the nasal structures for patients whose nasal situations need extensive nose contour reshaping. The operation requires a small incision which is made across the columella between the nostrils. Generally, the operation is performed under general anesthesia as it involves surgical intervention. The scar will not be visible due to its location under the tip.

2. Closed rhinoplasty

This operation is appropriate for patients who need small changes to reshape the structure of their noses. The incisions will be made inside the nostril, so the resulting scars will be hidden inside the nose.

3. Non-surgical approach

Dermal fillers injection can be a good non-surgical method to adjust bumps and depressions, and reshape the tip of the nose by injecting filler at strategic points temporarily. The procedure is considered an expensive way as it must be repeated once a year to maintain the results since the results can last up to a year only.

Preparation for Rhinoplasty 

Preparation for Rhinoplasty 

When you visit your doctor, you should be open with him about your expectations. After you explain to him your desires about the final results, he may suggest some options which can achieve your ultimate goals of the operation. Your rhinoplasty surgeon will start your operation with:

Checking your medical history

Your doctor will ask you some questions about your medical history whether you have any breathing issues or perform certain operations which may affect being a candidate for rhinoplasty. Also, he may ask if you have any chronic diseases or medical disorders which makes you unqualified for the operation. 

Performing your physical examination

A full physical examination will be conducted to ensure performing a successful operation with optimal results. Firstly, the doctor will conduct blood tests as well as physical exams which have to do with the nature of your facial skin and the strength of the nasal cartilage which mostly need to be reshaped.  

Smoking and medications

If you are a smoker, your doctor will recommend you to stop smoking before your operation. Nicotine can reduce the oxygen and blood which are required for the recovery process. Additionally, your surgeon will inform you to avoid medications, such as aspirin which lead to blood thinning and therefore cause more bleeding during the operation.

The steps of Rhinoplasty in detail

Although rhinoplasty is done surgically through two methods; open or close procedure, it goes through the same stages:

  1. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that requires general anesthesia. So you will be injected through your LV line which is connected to your hand's vein typically. After receiving the anesthesia, you will be completely unconscious during the operation.
  2. Incision making: the incision can be made in two methods depending on the adjustments your nose structure needs. For significant changes, an incision across the columella will be made. However, if the nose needs small changes, a closed procedure will be performed. This method requires an incision inside the nose only, so the scars will be invisible.
  3. These incisions allow access to the cartilages and nasal bones, so the surgeon can reshape the structure of your nose correctly. In most cases, nose reduction is done by removing parts of the cartilage, but sometimes parts of the cartilage are taken from the septum and added to the nose structure. If you have a breathing problem that has to do with a deviated septum, it will be modified and strengthened, helping you breathe normally.

After Rhinoplasty procedure

Once your surgery is done, your surgeon will cover your nose with a metal splint which ensures your nose takes its new shape. Moreover, additional splints may be put inside your nose to support your septum and keep it straight.

You may experience some bleeding, swelling, and headache for a short period, it is normal, you don't have to worry, use the medications prescribed by your doctor to help you release the pain and reduce the swelling.  You will get fully recovered in a few weeks.
