Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is more commonly referred to as a ‘nose job’. The main purpose of a rhinoplasty is to change the shape of the nose. The shape of the nose is changed by modifying the bone or cartilage of the nose. A nose job is one of the most common forms of plastic surgery. 

The upper part of the nose is made up of bones while the lower part of the nose is made up of cartilage. A nose job can alter or change the nose bone, cartilage or skin. If you are thinking of getting a rhinoplasty, you should talk with your surgeon about the changes you want to do and how they will affect your appearance. Once you have decided on what you want, your surgeon should be able to curate a personalized plan for your procedure. For further information, you should look for rhinoplasty specialists near you.

What happens during a rhinoplasty?

Before the procedure begins, you will be administered anesthesia. You will either be given local anesthesia that will just numb the area of the surgery or you will be given general anesthesia that will put you to sleep throughout the procedure.

Once you are numb or sleeping, the surgeon will start the procedure by making incisions. In a rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon can make two types of incisions. The incisions can be made inside the nose or on the outside at the base of the nose or even in between your nostrils. Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will separate the skin from the cartilage or the bone and then try to reshape it. 

The shape of your nose can be changed using various methods. These methods depend on how much cartilage needs to be removed or added to achieve your desired nose shape. If the change is small and only some amount of cartilage is required, the surgeon might extract it from the inner part of the nose or the ear. If a large part is required, the surgeon will get it from the cartilage of your ribs, implants or bone from another part of the body. In some cases, you might require a bone graft, which refers to an additional bone that needs to be added to your nose. If you have a deviated septum, that is when the wall of the nose is broken or crooked, the surgeon will fix that too. This can help in improving breathing. You will be monitored after the surgery and then you can leave.
