Nose Reshaping Surgical Procedure
Rhinoplasty surgery includes the following steps:
Step 1 – Patient is Given Anesthesia
We start the procedure by providing the patient with anesthesia to help them stay relaxed and prevent discomfort. This can either be done through a general anesthesia or an intravenous sedation.
Step 2 – Different Types of Incisions
Rhinoplasty is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.
Step 3 – Reshaping the Nose Structure
The bone or cartilage will be removed by our surgeon, which will help to trim down large noses. During rhinoplasty, cartilage transplantation may be required. to aid in the reshaping of the nose structure
Most commonly, cartilage from the septum, the partition in the middle of the nose, is used for this purpose. Occasionally cartilage from the ear or rarely a section of rib cartilage can be used.
Step 4 – Nasal Septum Correction
If your nasal septum is moved to one side, nose surgery can help straighten it and reduce the protrusion, allowing you to breathe more easily.
Step 5 – Bringing the Incision to a Close
The nasal skin and tissues are red raped, and incisions are closed once the underlying structure of the nose has been sculpted to the desired shape. Further incisions to the natural creases may be necessary to alter the size of the nostrils.
Step 6 – Final Results
Splints and gauze wrap will support the nose as it begins to heal.
Prior to surgery, you will be advised to follow specific guidelines such as consuming whole grain and healthy foods as well as exercising regularly. In addition, you will have to quit smoking three weeks prior to the surgery and strictly avoid over the counter drugs as these may cause bleeding.
