A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure meant to either correct some medical problems such as a deviated septum or just improve the features of your nose. It is a low-risk surgery, extremely popular in this day and age, easy to perform and allowing you to go back to work a few days after you had it. Side-effects such as bruising and rhinoplasty swelling are gone after the first week and results are noticeable in the second one.
Before moving forward you must be well informed of all its characteristics in order to make a sound decision.
The rhinoplasty procedure falls into two important categories: surgical and non-surgical. While the first one (and the most popular) involves incisions in order to shape the nose, the latter is non-invasive and relies on injectables. One method is not necessarily better than another, and your plastic surgeon will help you decide which procedure is best suited to your circumstances. Follow the links for more in-depth information about the different rhinoplasty techniques.
1. Closed Rhinoplasty - Your surgeon makes several incisions in the inside of your nose and makes the necessary revisions without creating scars on the exterior of the nose. This technique is often preferred when there are minor imperfections to be corrected.
2. Open Rhinoplasty - An additional small incision is made in the skin that separates the nostrils at the base of the nose to expose the cartilage. Depending on your unique needs, open rhinoplasty may give the surgeon better access to the anatomy of your nose to make more precise corrections. Your surgeon may prefer open surgery if there is grafting to be done, or in the case of ethnic rhinoplasty.
3. Revision Rhinoplasty - Noses that have already undergone a previous surgery may present some additional challenges. A significant amount of the nasal support structure may have been lost, grafts may have been misplaced, or scar tissue may have built up. The correction of these problems can often be more difficult and require different techniques.
