Rhinoplasty or surgery of the nose is one of the usual procedures among those performed on the face and must be performed by a surgeon with extensive training in both aesthetics and nasal functionality. There are several reasons why a person wants to undergo rhinoplasty, such as: nose dissatisfaction with which they were born, changes in the shape of the nose over the years, trauma or improve breathing and take advantage of surgery to change the shape of your nose.

Using a photographic scanner and special software for nose surgery, you can improve the shape according to the face of each person, we analyze the measures of both your face and your nose to define the plan of the changes we will need. Even in these nose operations , we can do a virtual surgery so that the patient takes part in the changes and can see what his face will look like with the new nose, both in front and in profile. In this way, the patient will be more sure of the change he wants to make and also as a surgeon I will be able to know exactly what the patient wants.

 

 

In nose surgery, it is impossible to separate aesthetics from functionality. That which improves nasal aesthetics can have negative consequences at the functional level, so current rhinoplasty techniques do not remove as much tissue as before.. Now, we reinforce and support the structures to modify the form and if we remove some tissue we reconstruct it. In this way we obtain totally natural and lasting results in both aesthetics and functionality.

The necessary incision to make a rhinoplasty varies according to the changes that are needed, there are noses that require minimal modifications and the incisions are only internal but if the changes are larger we must make small external incisions in the columella or at the base of the nasals, although always from the base of the nose inwards and not outwards as was done before and which were very visible. During the procedure, we also perform endoscopic approaches, especially when faced with a problem of nasal functionality. These incisions are camouflaged and are practically invisible. In addition, with these new approaches we get better and more natural noses.

After making the incisions and releasing the skin, we proceed to sculpt, reinforce and reconstruct the cartilage and the bones of the nose to achieve the desired result. Once the nose surgery is complete, we place a bandage that helps maintain the new nose shape during the first week.. For several years now we have not placed nasal tamponades .
