Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty)

Since the nose is located in the middle of our face, it is the most striking organ. Although we have delicate facial features, the sharp and pointed image of our nose can completely change our expression. Rhinoplasty is applied to people who experience discomfort and unhappiness due to the appearance of their noses. Rhinoplasty is redesigned electronically according to the facial features and form of the person, and the most suitable nose form is obtained by surgery. Rhinoplasty cannot be performed before age 16-18 because the nose has not yet completed its bone development.

The patient is usually sleeping during a rhinoplasty because it is normally done under general anesthesia. To reach the underlying bone and cartilage, the surgeon will either make incisions inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or outside the nose (open rhinoplasty).

The surgeon may employ a variety of procedures to modify or remove tissue as necessary once the underlying structures are visible. For instance, they might remove or restructure the nasal bones using a bone saw or chisel, or they might use sutures to reshape or realign the cartilage.

Following the required adjustments, the incisions will be stitched up, and the nose will be put in a cast or splint to help it keep its new shape while healing.

Several weeks are usually required for recovery following rhinoplasty, during which time the patient must refrain from the heavy activity and take extra care to prevent bumping or injuring their nose. Although the initial bruising and swelling should start to go down within a few days, it may take many months for the nose to heal completely and for the procedure’s full effects to show.

Overall, rhinoplasty is a delicate and difficult treatment that needs a surgeon with considerable expertise and experience, careful attention to detail, and a complete grasp of the patient’s desires.
