Rhinoplasty


Rhinoplasty is another name for a nose job. It is a plastic or cosmetic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions and aesthetically enhancing the nose by resolving nasal trauma.

Reasons for nasal reconstruction:

Skin Cancer: The most common cause (etiology) for a nasal reconstruction is skin cancer, especially the lesions to the nose of melanoma and basal-cell carcinoma. This oncologic epidemiology occurs more readily among the aged and people who reside in very sunny geographic areas; although every type of skin is susceptible to skin cancer, white-skin is most epidemiologically prone to developing skin cancer. Furthermore, regarding plastic surgical scars, the age of the patient is a notable factor in the timely, post-surgical healing of a skin cancer defect the most common cause for a nasal reconstruction is skin cancer, especially the lesions to the nose of melanoma and basal-cell carcinoma.

Major Trauma: Although trauma is a less common rhinoplastic occurrence, a nasal defect or deformity caused by blunt trauma (impact), penetrating trauma (piercing), and blast trauma (blunt and penetrating) requires a surgical reconstruction that abides the conservational principles of plastic surgery, as in the corrections of cancerous lesions.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

During rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes incisions to access the bones and cartilage that support the nose. The incisions are usually made inside the nose so that they are invisible after the surgery. Depending on the desired result, some bone and cartilage may be removed, or tissue may be added (either from another part of the body or using a synthetic filler).

POST PROCEDURE:

bruised and swollen for several days. Cold compresses can help minimize the swelling and reduce pain. Your doctor may also recommend pain medicine. It takes about 10 to 14 days before most of the swelling and bruising improves. You may need to keep your head elevated and relatively still for the first few days after surgery. It may be several weeks before you can return to strenuous activities

WHY TAKE IT?

Rhinoplasty can change the size, shape, and angle of your nose and bring it into better proportion with the rest of your face. Rhinoplasty may also correct structural problems with the nose that cause chronic congestion and breathing problems. Also, in certain professions (acting) appearance is the major reason why one lands a job, however it is of utmost importance to make sure the step you take precautionary measures before considering the same.
