WHAT IS A RHINOPLASTY?




Rhinoplasty is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose. It can be done for cosmetic reasons, to improve the appearance of the nose, or for functional reasons, to improve breathing or correct a birth defect. Rhinoplasty can modify the bone, cartilage, and skin of the nose, depending on the needs and goals of each patient. Rhinoplasty is a personalized surgery that requires careful planning and consultation with a surgeon.

ABOUT THE RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURE



The Rhinoplasty procedure usually takes between one and three hours, depending on the complexity of the surgery. The surgery can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. There are two main types of rhinoplasty: open and closed. In open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes a small incision across the columella, the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils, and lifts the skin off the nose to access the underlying structures. In closed rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes incisions inside the nostrils and does not lift the skin. The surgeon then reshapes the bone and cartilage of the nose according to the desired outcome. The skin is then redraped over the new shape and the incisions are closed with stitches.

RHINOPLASTY RECOVERY



Rhinoplasty recovery varies depending on the individual and the extent of the surgery. Some common aspects of rhinoplasty recovery are:

- After the surgery, the nose may be packed with gauze or splints to support the new shape and prevent bleeding. These are usually removed after a few days.
- The nose and the surrounding area may be swollen, bruised, and sore for several weeks.
- Ice packs, pain medication, and elevation of the head can help reduce the discomfort and swelling.
- The patient may have to wear a nasal cast or tape for about a week to protect the nose and keep it stable.
- The patient should avoid blowing the nose, sneezing forcefully, or wearing glasses that rest on the nose for several weeks.
- The patient should avoid strenuous activities, contact sports, and sun exposure for several months.

The final results of rhinoplasty may take up to a year or more to become apparent, as the nose continues to heal and settle into its new shape.
