One of the most common cosmetic surgeries is rhinoplasty or nose job. In this operation, the surgeon can change the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty is very important because the nose is located in the center of the face and plays an important role in the beauty of facial components. and besides, it is the most important part of breathing and plays an important and fundamental role in the overall health of the body. For this reason, first of all, you should be careful in choosing a rhino surgeon. Because the art, taste, and experience of a rhinoplasty surgeon play a key role in a good and desirable conclusion
The anatomy of the nose (of course, the part related to rhinoplasty) is:
- The upper part of the nose is called the nose bridge. The slope of the nose towards the tip of the nose is called the back of the nose (dorsum).
- The nostrils are located between the nose and the upper lip, and the skin strip between the nostrils is called the columella.
- The upper part of the back of the nose is made up of the nose bone, while the lower part is made up of cartilage.
- In the midline is the cartilage of the nasal septum, on either side of which are the lateral cartilages of the nose. On each side is the cartilage of the nasal septum that surrounds and protects the nostrils
This action, as we said, is to make people’s faces more beautiful. Today, it has many fans all over the world. In this surgery, the nose surgeon changes the shape of the bone and cartilage of the nose to make it look more appropriate.
These changes are made according to the type of nose. Sometimes you may not need to shave the bone, sometimes you may need to shave the cartilage, and sometimes you may need both. All this will be done based on the knowledge and experience of the specialist and surgeon.
Necessities of rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is usually an optional procedure and is not
mandatory or necessary. Most people who request the nose job are under 30 years old. In some people, respiratory problems force them to do so.
Contraindications to rhinoplasty
There is usually no specific barrier to rhinoplasty unless the person is in certain medical conditions, such as severe heart disease.
But there are some considerations:
- Teenagers have to wait until they reach adulthood to have a rhinoplasty.
- A blood clotting problem may cause bleeding. Aspirin may affect the blood clotting process, so be sure to tell your surgeon if you are taking aspirin.
- The person should refrain from smoking for at least two to four weeks before rhinoplasty because nicotine may delay the healing process.
- A person’s body may be colloidal (colloid is called residual wound effects)
- One should be realistic about one’s expectations of rhinoplasty, especially adolescents and their parents. Rhinoplasty improves a person’s appearance and thus boosts self-confidence, but in no way does it create a new person or create a different face.
- If you had Rhinoplasty before and plan to do it again, be sure to tell your surgeon.
The best advices for the nose job
Each person should schedule a consultation with the surgeon before their nose job. In this session, the surgeon examines the best form and the best method for the patients. It will be according to the form of the applicant’s nose and face and chooses the best way. Sometimes, people who come to the surgeon for respiratory problems, etc., like to continue to work and have a rhinoplasty after solving the nose problems, all of which should be carefully examined.
There are many reasons for this surgery. Some people have had an accident that affects their faces. or maybe their nose organs have been damaged. Others suffer from nose deviation and respiratory problems. Some people want this surgery just to boost their self-confidence in the community and life. And even today, many actors and other famous people are having nose surgery and it seems that they want to have a more beautiful face than they have.
But the important thing is that this action takes place naturally. That is, the shape of the nose is ultimately proportional to the other parts of the face. This is how a person’s face will become more beautiful. So, you have to be careful about that.
How is the nose job operation?
Rhinoplasty may be performed in a hospital or clinic or even a limited surgery facility under general anesthesia (sleep) or local anesthesia (awakening) with sedation.
Rhinoplasty briefly involves lifting the skin of the nose from the underlying bone and cartilage and deforming the bone and cartilage and placing the skin in place, resulting in the formation of deformed skin with bone and cartilage.
Some surgeons may make incisions inside the nostrils, which is called a closed rhinoplasty procedure, but some may also make a hole in the skin barrier between the two holes (columella) to completely lift the skin of the nose. This is called an open nose job.
When the skin is removed from the bone and cartilage, the hump behind the nose is smoothed by cutting the nasal bone and shortening the nasal septum, and performing an osteotomy.
The nostrils are reduced by removing small pieces of the base skin of the nostrils on each side.
In the process of nose deformity, depending on the need and shape of the nose, the tip of the nose may be deformed and the angle between the nose and the upper lip may change.
After surgery, a splint is placed on the back of the nose to maintain the shape of the newly operated nose.
Special tampons are inserted into the nostrils to support the cartilaginous septum in the middle of the nose after surgery.
Your expectations from rhinoplasty
The important thing is that many people who refer to this point do not mention it, what do they expect from rhinoplasty?! It is very important what you expect from the doctor and what the doctor wants to achieve in principle? You may have a nose shape that does not fit your face and other parts of your face at all, and this is something you cannot recognize and it is the surgeon’s job. And your doctor will consider another form as the natural form of your nose and it will be very compatible with your face. However, you should explain your expectations to the surgeon accurately and clearly.
Important care before rhinoplasty
Before any surgery, it is always necessary to check a series of cases and observe some things. Normally in surgeries and of course this type of cosmetic surgery, you should stop taking aspirin 2 weeks before and after the operation. Also, avoid taking ibuprofen. Because this drug will increase the chance of bleeding. If you smoke, quit two weeks before surgery. Because these items increase the likelihood of infection after surgery and thus complicate the recovery process after surgery.
Anesthesia in the nose job
Local anesthesia is commonly used in outpatient surgery. This is done according to the doctor’s opinion. And if general or complete anesthesia is needed, it is done through the airways or intravenously. However, one of these methods will be done in such a way that you will not feel the slightest pain during the surgery.
