Rhinoplasty, a surgery on the nose to change its form, size, or improve its function, and also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose. It is the most complex and challenging operation in all of the cosmetic surgeries because each part of the nose must be harmonious with all the others. According to the statistics of American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the rhinoplasty takes the fifth level for most common plastic surgeries.
This surgery can be performed for the visible bump on the nasal bridge, a droopy or enlarged nasal tip, a nose that’s off-center or crooked, or asymmetry due to a previous injury. it is done on a same-day basis in operating rooms of hospitals .and the general anesthesia will be used for allowing the surgeon to protect the airway during surgery.
During surgery, the doctor will make surgical cuts for accessing the bones and cartilage. Next, he will add or remove bone and cartilage in order to change the nose’s mold and function if needed. After a surgery, patients will wear a nasal splint for the first week. It is expected, swelling and some bruising around the eyes after surgery which will begin to improve after the third day.
Complicated rhinoplasty, If the patient doesn’t get the desired results after primary rhinoplasty, he will be performed to complicated rhinoplasty, it should be applied with great care and precision to improve the results of your initial rhinoplasty. It requires more time and is more complicated than a previous rhinoplasty because the nose has already been surgically altered.
