Where do I begin?


A consultation with our Rhino surgeons at Aesthetics Medispa is the first step to learn how Cosmetic Nose Surgery i.e. rhinoplasty surgery can improve the appearance of your face. This consultation will fully educate you in a non-pressured environment and will include a discussion of your goals, options available for Nose Surgery, likely outcomes, potential risks and complications.

 

What kind of anesthesia is required?


Usually the procedure would be done under a general anesthetic for improved comfort, yet it is possible to do it under local anesthetic as well.

 

Can you explain the procedure?


The technique for Nose Surgery would depend on what is to be achieved. The approach to Nose Job Surgery could be through a traditional closed approach or the newer, open technique. In the closed technique, all incisions are taken inside the nostrils, hence nothing is visible outside. In the open technique, along with incisions inside the nostril a small incision is taken on the underside of the nose. This heals very well and is not visible in the long run, but it gives better exposure and enables a precise correction under vision. The subsequent steps of the surgery would depend on what is being done.

 

What kinds of nose corrections can be done at Aesthetics MediSpa?


Augmentation: A depressed nose can be built up and made prominent with either artificial material called implants or autografts. Autografts could be cartilage from the septum of your nose, ear or ribs. It could also be bone grafts from skull or hips. Common implants used in Nose Surgery are silicone or medpore. There are pros and cons to the use of every type of material and your rhinoplasty surgeons would be able to explain those. At Aesthetics Medispa prefer to use autograft ( your own tissue) only, as the risk of problems is considerably less.

Hump removal: A hump on the nose is partly due to prominence of the bone and partly due to prominence of the septum/cartilage part of the nose. This has to be shaved off. Once it is removed, the roof of the nose is open and has to be closed within fracture of the nasal bones.

Boxy nasal tip: If the tip of your nose is bulbous or like a button, this can be refined. The cartilages which form the part of the tip of the nose have to be stitched tightly and reshaped to give a more proportionate and sleek tip.

Broad nose: This is a common problem and can be corrected by moving the nasal bones inwards by in fracture. Often the nasal tip has to be narrowed as well. If the nasal base is flared or broad, this can be corrected as well.

Deviated nose: Often the nose becomes deviated during development or becomes crooked due to injury. This can be straightened by removing the deviated part of the septum or putting straightening stitches and cartilage supports.

 

What to expect after nose surgery?


After nasal surgery, there may be a trickle of fluid or blood from the nostrils for one day and to catch this, a nasal pad will be placed under the nostrils. Nose surgery The nostrils might be blocked by a pack for one day to stop this drip. Often, the surgical trauma may cause swelling of the lining of the nose and give a feeling of the nose being bunged up. This feeling may last for up to three weeks. There might be bruising and swelling after surgery that should subside in three to six weeks. If you have had in-fractures, then you may have a splint on the nasal bridge, which will be removed in one week. A couple of days after surgery, due to the swelling, you might experience some difficulty in opening your eyes. This rapidly improves after the next day. Wounds normally heal in one to two week. Your rhinopasty surgeon at Aesthetics Medispa and the assisting staff will fully attend to your comfort and safety. The swelling around the tip of the nose tends to take the longest to resolve and may last for up to three months. Despite all the swelling, surprisingly the pain is very minimal and can be controlled by oral painkillers.

 

What are the possible risks and complications?


Although there are very few risks associated with this procedure, a possible general risk includes bleeding and collection of blood under the skin (hematoma). Bleeding is rare but may have to be stopped. Any surgery carries risks associated with anaesthesia. There are very few risks if the procedure is done under local anaesthesia. These risks will be fully discussed with you prior to your consent for surgery. General risks like delayed wound healing and infections are common to many other operations and can be treated satisfactorily. Any surgery on the nose has a ten percent risk of residual deformity, for which further revision surgery might be required.

 

What is the progress and healing period?


Incisions usually heal in one to two weeks. Stitches are removed around this time. You will be able to return to work and light normal activity by two weeks. You will then be asked to use a moisturiser and massage the face and scars. Cosmetics can camouflage any bruising or redness. Healing will continue for several weeks. Diligent sun protection is a must for best results. Nasal decongestants might help for nasal congestion.

 

How will the results and outlooks be?


Your final result will appear over time, generally within several weeks. It may take up to a year for incision lines to fully refine. Most of the swelling resolves by three months. The results are usually dramatic and noticeable straight after the dressing is removed, but further refinement in the nasal features happens over three months.

What matters more is that the appearance of your face matches the way you feel inside - youthful, vital and alert.
