Rhinoplasty is commonly known as a nose job, a surgical procedure that resizes or reshapes the nose. This procedure helps to correct a visible bump on the nasal bridge, an enlarged nasal tip, crooked nose, asymmetry due to any injuries, adjusting the size of nostril opening, altering the angle between lip and nose, relieving breathing problems. Rhinoplasty surgery is possible only for the patients whose nasal bone reached a complete growth.
How is Rhinoplasty performed?
The patient is administered with local anesthesia to numb the nose and surrounding area. Vascularity is reduced temporarily to limit bleeding. The surgeon makes incisions inside or between the nostrils and then separates nasal skin and soft tissues from the Osseo-cartilaginous nasal vault. Correction and reshaping are performed by the surgeon and incisions are sutured. Internal or external splints may be placed to prevent the mobility of the reconstructed nose which enables a fast recovery from the wound.
If the nose needs a meager amount of additional cartilage, then the surgeon may remove some of the cartilage from the side of the ear or inside the nose. In case, more cartilage needs, then he will do an implant or a bone graft. In bone graft, additional bone is removed from the hip or the rib cage. A Synthetic graft is done in case of unavailability of cartilages. Thus, rhinoplasty surgery is performed.
Since the surgery is performed as a day-care procedure, the patient may leave on the same day from the hospital. Swelling of face and nose are common that may gradually come down. Headache is a commonly noted discomfort in the surgery. After three days, the nasal pack is removed. A complete recovery may take several weeks. Maximum one year will take to witness the effectiveness of the surgery.
