If you’ve been thinking about getting a nose job done it’s normal to wonder how the process goes. Like any cosmetic surgery, each procedure has different types of methods which means each will have its own set of benefits, results and recovery timeframes as well.
For your convenience, we’ve compiled a summary of what you may anticipate from various types of nose surgeries here on this blog, so that you can either move forward in your surgical path or prepare for your consultation with your surgeon.
The Different Types Of Nose Job Methods And How They Are Done
When using the open method, incisions are performed on the skin of the columella which is the barrier that may be found between the nostrils as well as within the nose. After that, the skin is pulled away from the nasal cartilage, the framework of the nose is altered, the skin is placed back over the nose, and the incision is ultimately sutured, leaving behind a little scar.
The closed technique, also known as a “endonasal” approach, is one in which the required adjustments are carried out by making tiny incisions just inside the nasal passages, as to avoid the formation of an outward scar. The nasal cartilages and bones are then altered by inserting the devices in a manner that makes the necessary adjustments. This surgical technique is referred to as a closed approach since it’s done inside of the nose at all times.
A revision rhinoplasty is a possibility in the event that the first rhinoplasty is not effective and does not live up to the patient’s expectations. The last operation left some cosmetic faults, and there is a possibility that it affected the patient’s ability to breathe normally. The purpose of this procedure is to address those aesthetic imperfections.
Because of the alterations that have been done on the nose and the scarring that has resulted from the prior rhinoplasty surgeries, revision rhinoplasty is substantially different from primary rhinoplasty. In addition, the patient, who is already upset because the operation did not work, is naturally more apprehensive about the results of the revision surgery.
Therefore, revision rhinoplasty calls for a greater degree of knowledge in addition to a significant amount of experience carrying out nasal surgery. In order to make the required adjustments, more sophisticated methods will need to be used. In addition, the surgeon has to have expertise in addressing breathing problems, since this is often one of the primary concerns that needs to be addressed during a revision rhinoplasty.
Revision rhinoplasty may be quite successful when performed by skilled and experienced hands. It can provide fantastic results and free the patient from the anxiety associated with the possibility of having a bad outcome. That said, each surgery will be done differently based on the needs of the patient.
The Usual Steps For A Nose Job
The following are the stages that comprise of an average rhinoplasty surgery:
First Step: During the first steps, several medications will be given to you in order to ensure your comfort. Sedation by intravenous medication or general anesthesia are the two options. Your physician will provide advice on the option that is most suitable for you during your consultation.
Second Step: As we’ve previously mentioned, it is possible to do rhinoplasty by either a closed operation, in which the incisions are concealed inside the nose, or an open technique, in which an incision is made across the columella, which is the thin strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.
These incisions enable for the skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages to be gently elevated, which provides access to the underlying structures of the nose so that they may be reshaped.
Third Step: The third step involves reshaping the structure of the nose. This will ultimately be based on what you and your surgeon have discussed during your consultation.
Fourth Step: This step involves suturing the incision. The incisions are then closed after the nasal skin and tissue have been redraped and after the underlying structure of the nose has been shaped to the desired form.
Fifth Step: The final step in this process is of course waiting for the recovery period to end. As the nose starts to mend, it may be necessary to support it with splints and gauze packing for a few days. After that you will continue to see your surgeon until your nose is fully healed.
Every nose job will be unique since each patient has a distinct goal in mind, which is understandable. Regardless of your technique of choice, most operations follow a similar flowchart. During your one-on-one meeting with your surgeon, they will be able to provide you with further information regarding your personalized experience.
