Rhinoplasty is surgery on the nose to change its shape or improve its function. It can be done for medical reasons; such as to correct breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from trauma or birth defects.
It is necessary to be 18 years of age.
If the body bone structure has been completed, it is more comfortable to plan the shape disorder in the nose. When planning rhinoplasty, your surgeon will consider your other facial features, the skin on your nose and what you would like to change.

Procedure

The upper portion of the structure of the nose is bone, and the lower portion is cartilage. Rhinoplasty can modify bone, cartilage, skin or all three. The operation is carried out from the patient’s nostrils with an inward incision. There is no scar on the patient’s skin after the operation. Each patient has special planning. Doctor may take photographs of your nose from different angles. Your surgeon may use computer software to manipulate the photos to show you what kinds of results are possible. After, you and your doctor should talk about your motivations and expectations. Rhinoplasty requires local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the surgery and your surgeon’s preferences. The operation lasts approximately 2 hours. At the end of the operation the buffer is placed in the nostrils. The Atel is placed on the nose.

After Surgery

After the surgery you need to rest in bed with your head raised higher than your chest, to reduce bleeding and swelling. Swelling and bruising are seen around the eye according to the person’s metabolism and body structure. It might be several months before you see the full effect of the nose operation, and up to six months for all of the swelling to completely go.
