Nose surgery is a medical procedure that intends to reshape the nose. It is also known as rhinoplasty. People who have health issues due to their noses’ shape, the ones who have nose deformation caused by accidents, or the ones who simply don’t like their noses’ form can undergo rhinoplasty. It is a common medical procedure in today’s world. If you don’t have any specific health issues that keep you from taking the operation, you can leave your worries aside.
The first and the most important part of the nose surgery process is the determination of your medical history and diagnosis of your needs by your doctor. Especially, bleeding disorder may cause severe problems for rhinoplasty. Any wrong statement about your medical history may lead to unsuccessful operation. So, be sure that you give correct and complete information to your doctor beforehand.
Secondly, the surgery requires anaesthesia. The type of anaesthesia, whether it will be local or general, depends on your surgeon’s preference and complexity of the surgery. After applying the anaesthesia, you are ready for the operation.
There are two ways to perform surgery. It can be either performed through your nostrils, or through a small external touch at the base of your nose.
Our surgeons can readjust bone, cartilage, or your skin according to your needs. Since nose structure and amount of available material vary from person to person, the surgeon can choose between different ways of operation. For small changes, the surgeon may use cartilage taken from inside your nose or from your ear. Larger changes require larger pieces of different parts. In this case, your doctor use ribs, bones from other parts of your body, or implants.
Once all readjustments finish, doctors stitch up the incisions on your nose, and the surgery is over. Afterwards, you will need to spend a day or two in the clinic under the doctors’ supervision.
