Rhinoseptoplasty or septorhinoplasty is the most correct way of referring to the cosmetic surgery of the nose, commonly known as rhinoplasty. Rhinoseptoplasty procedure includes a vast majority of cases work nasal septum or septum, either for a respiratory failure remodeling or for a graft which then employ the nose reconstruction. Apart from functional problems, if any, it may be correct aesthetic defects of the tip, the dorsum (hump), laterorrinia (sloping nose), wide nose, etc..


Results Rhinoseptoplasty


A successful surgery is one that returns the patient's facial harmony. That is, an optimal result is one that makes the nose follow the structural features of the face. Achieving that balance is, in most cases, the more complex work. On one side, the nose should be overlooked, in fact when we observe someone's face areas in which we most look are her eyes and her smile. The shape, size and width of a nose should be in line with each race, because that allows us to achieve more satisfactory results for our patients.


Scars after rhinoseptoplasty


The nose surgery is a complex surgery that supports few errors. Small structural changes may mean very marked defects. In most cases we perform open, which means making an incision 2-3 mm at the columella (structure between the two nostrils), which allows a correct visualization of the entire skeleton and osteocartilaginous precise work. This scar is highly cosmetic achieving disappears within a few weeks after surgery


Rhinoplasty: ENT or plastic surgeon?


If you ask me who must make rhinoplasty, the answer is clear, that must be done by a specialist doctor who has appropriate training and be able to obtain good results for the patient. The nose is part of the working field of Otolaryngology, and that makes our vision as specialists more comprehensive and specific than other specialties, which can offer very good results both aesthetically and functionally.


Postoperative after rhinoseptoplasty


Each patient will require specific care and each will present a different postoperative. Generally a patient can be incorporated into their daily lives gradually from 7-10 days.
