A rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery (Nose Job) meant for the performance of a nose job. It changes the shape of the nose, the purpose of it is to improve the appearance of the nose, to improve an individual’s breathing or to achieve both at the same time. It is a surgery which is considered to repair deformities one might have due to an injury or to correct both deformities as well. The upper portion of the structure of the nose is bone, while the lower bone is cartilage. This nose surgery can change skin, bone, cartilage, or even all three. One should have a discussion with their doctor regarding whether rhinoplasty is appropriate for them, and the difference it can potentially make for the patient.
The procedure of this nose operation is as follows: It is important to keep in mind that rhinoplasty does not have a specified series of steps, and that each surgery is unique and customized according to the facial anatomy and goals of each individual patient. Firstly, either local anesthesia with sedation or a general anesthesia will be provided to the patient depending on the complexity of their surgery and the preference of the doctor too. In a local anesthesia with sedation, a specific area of one’s body is targeted. Through this, a patient feels groggy but is not fully asleep. On the other hand, with general anesthesia, the drug is received through it being inhaled or through the use of a small tube place in a vein in one’s hand, neck, or chest. This affects the entire body, and makes one unconscious during their surgery.
This cosmetic surgery may be done inside one’s nose or through a small external cut (incision) at the base of your nose between your nostrils. The surgeon will re-adjust the bone and cartilage present underneath one’s skin. Once the surgery has been completed, the patient will be taken to a recovery room where it will be waited for him/her to become fully conscious. Then, after a day or two, the patient will allowed to go home.
Similar to other major surgeries, rhinoplasty (Nose Job) consists of the following risks: Bleeding, infection, and an adverse reaction to the anesthesia. Furthermore, other risks associated with rhinoplasty consist of a hole in the septum (septal perforation), scarring, pain, discoloration, swelling, the possibility of an uneven looking nose, permanent numbness in and around your nose, and lastly, difficulty breathing through your nose.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery one can consider for the improvement of their appearance, and comes under the list of plastic surgeries one can resort to for this purpose. Other examples of such surgeries include liposuction, which is the surgical removal of excess fat from one’s body, and septoplasty, a procedure used to correct a deviated septum. The effects of a plastic surgery in comparison to before and after it has been conducted are usually highly significant and notable, and therefore, it is an option which is in a fair amount of demand in the world of today.
