Rhinoplasty is a procedure that is performed for two purposes – either to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the nose or to correct the structural deformities to fix the breathing problems. Nose surgery is a complex and most difficult cosmetic procedure. Therefore, you should select a highly experienced cosmetic surgeon for the procedure if you want to get the desired results successfully. Plastic and cosmetic surgeons have designed various techniques for the procedure depending on the patient’s needs and choices.
Here is an overview of four proven techniques that cosmetic surgeons use for the procedure of rhinoplasty.
Closed Nose Surgery
Closed nose surgery is the procedure in which incisions are made inside the nostrils where they are completely hidden. These incisions are made inside the rim of the nostrils and then changes are done in the nose. Your surgeon will separate the soft tissues inside the nose from the underlying structure. If your nose is too large, part of the nasal bone is carefully removed while on the other hand if it is too small, cartilage grafts are added. The cartilage grafts are mostly taken from ears, nose, bones or ribs. Artificial implants like silastic implants, human cartilage or tissue grafts can also be used. Splint and sometimes nasal packing are used to give extra support. The benefit of closed nose surgery is that there is no chance of any visible scarring. However, the surgeon can make limited changes using this technique.
Open Nose Surgery
In this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision across the nasal septum present between the nostrils. It makes it easy for him to lift the skin off the nasal tip and make changes in the cartilage and bone of the nose. This is done so that the surgeon can visualize the inner structures of the nose much clearly and the surgery gives more desirable results. The benefit of this technique is that better changes can be made but the only drawback is that it leaves a scar behind though it is virtually invisible.
Natural Nose Surgery
Nose surgery has been performed for decades but the surgeons are continuously challenged to develop the techniques that give more natural-looking results requiring less time. In the past, there have been lots of cases in which patients ended up with noses that were either overdone or were disproportionate to the rest of the facial features. Today, rhinoplasties are designed for the purpose of reshaping and rearranging rather than eliminating. This gives more natural-looking results. Natural methods are best done by using open rhinoplasty.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is beneficial for those people who want to enhance the appearance of their nose without going under the knife. Patients who select non-surgical rhinoplasty to feel less pain and recover more quickly. Furthermore, the cost of the procedure is also quite less. Most injectable fillers and botox injections are used to fill in the depressions on the nose bridge make it even. This treatment is also effective for those clients who didn’t get satisfactory results from a previous nose job. The benefit of this technique is that it is non-surgical and involves minimal side effects but it can make minor changes only.
