Nose Surgery: Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty aims to modify the appearance and functionality of the nasal appendix either to solve respiratory problems or to change the shape of the nose, altering bones and cartilage to improve facial appearance.
For both issues, the nose becomes an organ of vital importance in the personal image.
How will the plastic surgeon evaluate me for rhinoplasty?
The specialist in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, specifically in rhinoplasty, must assess the aesthetic and vital circumstances of each person in an individualized way, considering the patient as a whole, not focusing solely on his nose. Thus, a small, upturned nose may fit a young girl but the patient must be warned that she will grow old with her, and in her fifties or sixties she will not be so pleasant. The surgeon, like the sculptor, is essential to that special sensitivity that, guided by good technique and scientific knowledge, makes it possible for the patient to bring his reality closer to his ideal. Zoom in, not play.
How should I prepare for rhinoplasty?
Before the intervention, a complete preoperative examination should be performed: analytical, chest x-ray and electrocardiogram, as well as an x-ray of nasal bones to evaluate nasal tips, nasal tips, easel, and possible deviations.
What will the rhinoplasty surgery look like? What can I expect?
This type of intervention is performed under local anesthesia and sedation, and lasts about one hour, and can be done with overnight admission or ambulatory, depending on the complexity of the surgery.
The average recovery time is around one week and the return to daily life can be done in about ten days. Any hematoma produced by the intervention disappears in this period of time.
What results can I expect?
The final results of the rhinoplasty will be appreciated as soon as the plaster is removed, which is maintained for a week, although the more the more time is spent, the more it becomes natural.
Currently rhinoplasty is one of the most requested cosmetic surgery operations in our country, both men and women, since it is an organ of great importance in providing personality traits.
