Correction of the size and shape of the nose (pronounced nasal hump, too
long, too wide nose /bulbosed/, asymmetrical nasal tip, drooping nasal tip,
saddle nose, deformity after previous rhinoplasty and trauma), as well as
correction of possible breathing issues by straigthning nasal septum,
removing conhal excess bones and mucosa and internal valvular correction by
Spreader grafts, etc. with an open approach.
Classic endonasal surgery has become rare not because they become obsolete,
but because, it is in our view reserved for a small number of reductive
rhinoplasty with minimal humps, well-defined and projected tip of the nose
which is unfortunately very rare in practice.
Although there is no age limitation for rhinoplasty, adolescence is the time
when your nose is practically reaching its full development. This is the
earliest period in which surgery can be recommended.
The correction is performed through incisions inside the nostrils
and through a small,almost invisible incision on base of the nose. This
approach provides good access to the nasal skeleton. This method provides
numerous advantages over conventional nasal surgery. Further procedure
consists of changing the shape and position of the nasal bones and
cartilages, in order to reduce the nasal pyramid or to increase it. After
surgery is performed, in the nasal turbinates the tampons are placed as well
as nasal mask on the back of the nose, which should be removed after seven
days. After this period, it is possible to put make-up on.
Duration and Anesthesia:
surgery usually lasts 2 to 3 hours and is performed under local anesthesia,
intravenous analgosedation or general anesthesia.
Until the tampons are removed the patient
breathes through the mouth. By this time the swellingis largely withdrawn.
After a few days you are going back to your normal activities, but in the
next few days you should avoid activities that can elevate your
bloodpressure. Swelling around the eyes and in the surrounding tissue.
Rare Somplications: Bleeding,
compliment you can get is, when someone says that your nose is not marked.
The ultimate goal of rhinoplasty is, in essence, to get functional nose and
to obtain the nose that looks natural and harmonious with your face.
