Rhinoplasty is a surgical operation that aims to change the structure of the outer nose. It May Be Motivated By Functional Problems Or By An Anesthetic Concern.
The first rhinoplasty in the West was performed in the 19 th century by Joseph Constantine Carpue.
When to have rhinoplasty?
The nose signs the character, and when it is a source of complex, It is impossible to hide. The aesthetic responses must always take into account the psychological parameter.
A nose that you can't stand can ruin your life. It's simple "rhinoplasty engages the whole personality"
At what age to decide on a rhinoplasty?
The operation is possible when the face has finished its bone and cartilage growth. between 16 and 18 years old. This remains a theoretical age, one can exceptionally operate on a 14 year old teenager if the nose poses a real psychological problem well known with the agreement of the parents.
What Can Rhinoplasty Correct?
Everything can be corrected, starting with the most classic cases of working on the nose or a too thick nose ... even if some cases remain more delicate.
If the skin is very thick:
The operation will be more complex, for example so-called ethnic rhinoplasties. When the patient may have very short nasal bones, soft cartilages, very thick skin.
If The Skin Is Very Thin:
The risk of seeing irregularities or imperfections increases significantly.
If the bones are brittle:
In people over 40, the skin does not smooth out the same way and the bones are more brittle.
If There Is A Fake Bump:
People who have a hollow between the two eyes may give the impression of having a lump; this is the case where rhinoplasty by injections gives good results. Rhinoplasty by injection allows to correct small defects of the nose with injections (hyaluronic acid). this method has several advantages: it is rapid and non-invasive, and there are few consequences. the result can last from 1 to 3 years because the nose is not a mobile area, hyaluronic acid can stay in place for a long time.
How is the intervention going?
During a classic rhinoplasty the surgeon will operate most often under general anesthesia for one to three hours. There are two ways to do this.
First through the inside of the nose (closed rhinoplasty). Second option: make a microincision between the nostrils (open rhinoplasty) the surgeon proceeds by open route when the nose presents factors that can be a source of difficulty ... especially since the scar is almost invisible.
Are the Suites Binding?
This nose surgery may require overnight hospitalization. The consequences are binding: count at least a week of social exclusion.
In some cases, the patient wears wicks to prevent bleeding for two days, a plaster or splint for a week. It takes one to two weeks of bruising around the eyes.
Then, so that the nose finds its final appearance, it will be necessary to wait up to a year, the time for the edema to subside in several stages. on the upper and bony part, the final result can be seen in two or three months.
What if there is a breathing problem?
There are few contraindications to nose surgery. In some cases of diffuse polyposis (growths in the mucous membranes) and which deform the nose, or in the event of an uncorrectable bleeding problem, the operation is prevented. But these cases are rare. Often the operation will even be better breathe.
Will the Nose be Sensitive?
Once the period of consolidation has passed, there is nothing to say that the nose will be more fragile, even if the patient psychologically will pay more attention to his nose after the operation. the patient is generally more afraid of damaging it than anything else.
