WHAT DIFFERENT NOSE SURGERIES ARE THERE?
There are different reasons why people choose to have nose surgery. Therefore there are different techniques and approaches to rhinoplasty that address the patient’s specific needs and concerns.
Some common types of nose surgeries include:
This nose surgery is usually done for aesthetic reasons. It can improve the shape, size, projection and other features of the nose.
This type of surgery is done to improve breathing or address deviated septum.
There are two subtypes of functional rhinoplasty – septoplasty and turbinectomy:
Septoplasty resolves the issue of the deviated septum by reshaping the misaligned cartilage and bone. This way the two nasal passages are separated and the airflow is improved.
Turbinectomy resolves the issue of turbinate hypertrophy or the condition where the patient’s turbinates are swollen which causes improper nasal breathing, nosebleeds of constant sinus infections. Once the turbinates are reduced the patient can breathe through the nose without constrictions.
This nose surgery is performed to correct the mistakes of previous nose job procedures.
Regarding the technique, rhinoplasty can be done as an open or closed procedure. The open rhinoplasty involves creating an incision on the outside of the nose, just underneath the nostrils. Closed rhinoplasty involves creating incisions inside the nose. There are additional techniques that can be used during nose surgery, such as cartilage grafting, internal sutures or bone shaving.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE NOSE SURGERY?
With rhinoplasty, the patients can shape their noses as they have always wanted. With the right technique and approach, this surgery can improve the appearance of the nose and make it more proportional to other facial features.
The surgery can reduce the bridge of the nose or its tip and reshape the nostrils. It can make the nose flatter if it looks too pointed or build up a nose that looks flat. The patients can decrease or increase the size or change the shape of their noses – just a slight change in the nose can create dramatic and beautiful changes in the patients’ appearance.
Moreover, rhinoplasty can improve breathing by resolving the issue of a deviated septum or eliminating the problem with sinuses.
Once the patients see the full results of their nose surgery, their confidence is increased and they finally feel good about the way they look.
