Safest Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)


 

Safest Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) @ GLOJAS

 

A Rhinoplasty, or a ‘nose job’, is one of the five most common cosmetic surgery procedures. As the central feature of the face, the size and shape of the nose is a key determining factor in how we feel about our overall appearance and attractiveness. If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with it, a rhinoplasty procedure is the most effective solution to change it.

A rhinoplasty procedure reshapes, corrects or reconstructs the nose to achieve more aesthetically pleasing proportions and to enhance ones’ physical appearance.

Our surgeons are leading experts in their field, and via a rhinoplasty procedure, can make your nose smaller, more prominent, slimmer, or wider, or simply smooth away unwanted lumps or bumps.

 

 

What is a Rhinoplasty?

The nose develops its final shape only after puberty and this development is complete by the age of 16. This determines the earliest age at which one can reasonably carry out a rhinoplasty.

A rhinoplasty procedure reshapes, corrects or reconstructs the nose to achieve more aesthetically pleasing proportions and to enhance ones’ physical appearance.

Whilst this is most commonly carried out for aesthetic reasons, a nose job can also be performed as a procedure to improve function by correcting breathing issues and help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnoea and snoring. In these cases, one is likely to also be operating on the septum or turbinate which are blocking the airway, otherwise known as a septoplasty or submucosal resection (‘SM Resection’).

There is also the large group of patients who have suffered injuries to the nose, very often a nasal fracture, playing sport or as a result of physical assault. This requires a delicate balance between the size, shape, contours and definition of the nasal bridge and tip. Nose reshaping requires skill and surgical finesse as millimetres make the difference between a natural-looking result and one that has obvious trademarks of surgery.

 

Types of Rhinoplasty Procedure

The nose is supported by a skeleton. In the upper third, it is a bony skeleton and the lower two-thirds are nostrils, flexible cartilage of the same type as we have in the ear. Dividing the two airways running back from the nostrils, we have another sheet of cartilage, covered with mucosa, called the septum. This is a strut which stops the cartilaginous part of the nose from collapsing.

Most operations on a Caucasian nose involve a reduction in size and therefore both the bony and cartilaginous skeleton are reduced, allowing the skin to retract, often without trace of a scar.

 

Open Rhinoplasty

An incision is made across the columella (the skin of the central strut of the nose separating the two nostrils. The incision is carried up and around the rim of the nostrils, allowing the skin on the nose to be peeled back. The surgeon then has a direct view of the cartilage, which they can then refashion. This technique is used for the very complicated, difficult and injured nose but is also used exclusively by some surgeons.

 

Closed Rhinoplasty

The closed rhinoplasty does not have an incision across the skin of the columella between the nostrils, but is carried out through the mucosa of the inside of the nose. The surgeon does not have the direct view of the nasal skeleton and therefore it is a technique for the more experienced surgeon.

 

Septo-Rhinoplasty

A septo-rhinoplasty is commonly done to improve the way you breathe through your nose. This is often done for patients who suffer from a deviated septum. The septum is the cartilage and bone inside your nose that divides the nostrils.

Your surgeon will make an incision in the mucosa (the lining inside your nose), and lift it off the bone and cartilage in order to remove any parts that are bent, putting them into a straight position allowing for clear breathing. This procedure will improve the way you breathe, and the appearance of your nose can be adjusted as well.

 

Rhino-Tip Surgery

Rhino-tip surgery is done to change the shape of the nose by modifying the structure of the underlying cartilage. Most alterations are done from inside the nose so as to minimize any scarring. Your surgeon can create the perfect tip for your nose structure.

Some common cases that patients come in for are:

 

– Big Tip: This is a rounded appearance at the tip of the nose, possibly due to thick skin.

 

– Crooked Tip: One nostril may appear larger than the other or the nose might be slanted to one side causing an asymmetrical look.

 

– Flared Nostrils: When the nostrils are larger and spread farther apart creating an upturned of flat-nose appearance.

 

– Hooked Tip: This is when the nose juts out and is overly-long, particularly noticeable on the profile of the patient.

 

 

The Oriental & African Nose Augmentation

Many patients have noses which are flatter with wider nostrils. In these cases, it is not a question of reducing the skeletal support, but adding to it. The bridge line can be raised by adding a manmade substance or the patient’s own bone and cartilage taken from the ear, skull or rib. In each case, the extra tissue is carved to the required shape. Nostrils and nostril floor can be reduced in width by removing a wedge of tissue. The oriental may on occasions need surgery of the upper eyelid, and particularly the inner end where there is often web.
