¿That goal has rhinoplasty?
The goal of rhinoplasty is the aesthetic improvement of the nose. What we really want is to get a nose that is proportionate with other facial structures. That is, get a harmonica nose, symmetrical and, above all, natural, without altering its functionality. Sometimes this function is already altered and must perform an operation called septorhinoplasty.
To achieve these objectives the most important is the first visit with the patient. We have to see what the patient wants, that is what we can offer that patient and how we will get. There are skins that are thicker and they can not get a tune to the nose, or other conditions that can not be changed. It is no question that the patient comes to us with a model and we copy it exactly, but with the limitations of the patient's own nose can achieve a more natural and aesthetic as possible.
¿, At what age is possible or advisable to get rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can be performed when there is a complete development of the person. In women, the anatomical development is usually earlier than in men and is about 16 years. In men it is customary to wait for 18 years. Although there is an important psychological factor, related to the maturation which each person, and can extend the recommended age.
¿What types of rhinoplasty there?
In function of the approach we talked about two basic types of rhinoplasty. The traditional closed rhinoplasty is that all through cuts is performed within the mucosa and used for the most common and simple rhinoplasty. But for more complex rhinoplasty, we use a technique with which we open the skin of the columella, which is the lower part of the nose, and can expose the entire nasal tip and have greater control of the entire tip.
¿How is the post -operative?
The post -operative rhinoplasty is not painful but annoying. If we do only the aesthetics usually place a tamponade and retire at 24 hours. If you also do the partition, this blockage can leave up to 4 days. If we have to break the nasal bone, we need to place a splint ( plastic or plaster) and keep it between 7 and 10 days. Bone breaking involves a major inconvenience, an inflammation of the periorbital area and some bruising, which usually last about 2 weeks.
¿When the results of the intervention are?
The result of the intervention can be seen when we remove the nasal splint, from 7 to 10 days. However, inflammation of the nose will last 2 to 3 months; and naturalness of the nose will get from 6 months.
