The aim of rhinoplasty is to repair the defects of the shape and function of the nose, which is one of the most common cosmetic procedures, and for many people, this process, in addition to being suitable for nasal abnormalities caused by accidents, emergence or deviation, it is a way to help self-confidence.
What are the parts of the nose:
* The upper part is the bone part of the nose
* The middle and lower part: the cartilaginous parts of the nose
* Nose barrier: which separates the noses of the nose and has a bone part and cartilage part
* The internal parts of the nose: It is inside the nasal cavity and related to the functional area of the nose and has nothing to do with aesthetics
What is normal and what is flawed?
There may be some imbalance between the external parts of the nose, such as there is a relative smallness of the upper part compared to the lower part or vice versa, or there is a bulge in the middle part with tightness in the lower upper parts or there is a visible warp in the nasal barrier. On the other hand, there may be a case of relative nose inconsistency with the rest of the facial features, such as the face is generally thin with the size of the nose or vice versa. And the estimation of this relative situation depends on the extent of the impact on the owner may be a large case of inconsistencies in the features of the face, but is not impressive and does not bother the owner or there is a small proportion of inconsistency, but caused the owner a lot of suffering and these cases need surgical intervention to improve the shape of the nose In proportion to the overall shape of the face.
Rhinoplasty can be divided into:
1 – operations performed for the parts cartilage of the nose: These operations are simple and do not need to stay in the hospital where they are cases of one day and does not need to put an external splint on the nose.
2 – Operations of the bone part of the nose: It depends on the restructuring of the bone part of the nose, which are intermediate operations need to stay in the hospital for a day after the operation and need to put an external splint on the nose.
3 – operations are performed to repair the warp or apparent emergence of the nasal barrier: These operations need partial removal of the nasal barrier with the adjustment of the bones of the nose to restore consistency and parallelism, which are large operations and need to stay in hospital for two days with the development of an external splint of the nose.
Nose enlargement operations: These operations are performed in cases of deficiency in some parts of the first or secondary nose (resulting from injuries or previous nose operations). These operations require the addition of artificial or natural parts of the nose (using bones or cartilages from different parts of the body) . These operations require a hospital stay for a period determined by the doctor based on the steps required for the patient.
The patient or patient should be interviewed in the first session with a detailed explanation of the problem and proposed solutions. It is preferable that there be a clear background for the patient about the details of the procedure so that he can determine which part of the nose is to be improved and if necessary the patient will be interviewed in another session Determine the final status and details of the operation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can a rhinoplasty be performed for any patient?
As long as there is a specific complaint from an area of the nose that can be surgically improved, there is nothing to prevent the operation.
Can a rhinoplasty be done at the same time as a process to treat a functional problem with the nose?
This depends on the quality of the two processes. For example, if the functional problem is a nasal obstruction and shortness of breath due to the warping of the nasal septum with the presence of a visual warp affecting the aesthetic form, there is no conflict between the procedure of both processes. If the repair requires surgical procedure of internal parts with the possibility of putting filler Large in contrast to the process of accurate embellishment of the nose, it does not fit the two processes together and then the process is carried out in two phases functional and aesthetic stage.
Is the operation under local anesthetic or general anesthetic?
Simple operations can be done under local anesthetic, while the patient is given sedatives. In the larger cases, they need a general anesthetic.
Can rhinoplasty be performed with other operations?
This may be possible if there is no conflict in the public health of the patient or the effects resulting from both processes, for example, can be performed liposuction with rhinoplasty, but can not be a process of eyelid beautification with the process of rhinoplasty as the bruises that can result from restructuring the bone part of the nose Can extend to the eyelids which may lead to negative effects on eyelid tightening.
Is an internal filler used in rhinoplasty?
In all cases a light strip is placed to absorb the blood drops that may come out after the operation and is lifted after a day or two depending on the type of operation.
What about the external trowel? An external splint is placed for the cases in which we surgically treat the structure of the nose and leave this splint for ten days after the operation.
When can the patient regain normal activity?
The normal activity is restored gradually (48 hours after the procedure) with the external sphincter and the activity can be practiced after a period of not less than 3 weeks after completion of the operation.
When does the nose position settle on the end result of the operation?
Some minor nasal changes may occur in the postoperative period and these changes stabilize after a period of six months to one year from the date of the operation.
At what age can the operation be performed?
In general, it is preferable to postpone the operation beyond the age of 15 years because the nose at this age reaches 90% of its final size almost.
