The Nose Job Faq-步步高i606

Health Nasal Plastic surgery is a specialty in itself. It has its own niche and unique questions. I will highlight the 9 most .mon clients concerns. 1) Who will benefit from cosmetic rhinoplasty? Ideally anyone over the age of 18 years, in good medical health who requires correction of a cosmetic nasal defect. This may be a reduction in nasal size which may include a hump removal, straightening the nasal bones and shortening the apparent length of the nose. This is called a reduction rhinoplasty. Some nasal profiles show a significant "saddle" deformity either from previous trauma, ethnic traits or inherited facial characteristics. This is known as "augmentation" rhinoplasty. It will require a cartilage graft either from the patients nasal septum or their auricular (ear) cartilage to cover the saddle shaped defect. Surgery for Asian, Mediterranean and African-American clients require a deep understanding of their special racial characteristics and this is an increasing market especially in the British Isles where third generation immigrants are more "westernized". This variant is called the "Ethnic" rhinoplasty. Those clients unfortunate enough to require a second procedure present the rhinoplastic surgeon with a unique and difficult problem known as revision or secondary rhinoplasty. The scarring from previous surgery and the expectation from the dissatisfied client together with technical difficulties make this a very demanding and challenging procedure. All these procedures may require refinement of the nasal tip. The artistry and finesse to perform this aspect well, require years of study and experience, often beyond the realm of most plastic surgeons. 2) How is it done? Surgery may be performed using "Twilight" anaesthesia or general anaesthesia depending on the client’s choice. The majority of cases are performed utilizing internal incisions that are not visible and hence no external scars. This is called a closed rhinoplasty. Sometimes it is required to make an external incision in the columella ( the partition between nostrils). This is called the open or external approach. It depends what needs to be done to the nose; for example, when placing a cartilage graft or refined tip work. 3) How long will it take? This depends on the type of rhinoplasty, but as a rule between one to two hours. 4) What results can I expect from a nose job? It is vital to have realistic expectations and this is where the preoperative consultation is so important. Both client and surgeon have to sing from the same hymn sheet so to speak. Remember your surgeon wants to make you happy, his livelihood depends on it. 5) What is the recovery? Rhinoplasty is not usually painful, but that doesn’t mean it is not un.fortable. Most patients are ready to go back to light work two to three weeks after the operation. Avoidance of .petitive extreme sports where there is a high risk of facial injury. Some surgeons may argue that they will only perform a rhinoplasty when a contact sport athlete has retired from active .petition! 6) What risks and .plications are involved? Surgical .plications are bleeding, infection, septal haematoma (a blood collection between the two opposing lining layers of the internal nose), collapse of the nasal bridge, loose fragments of bone and approximately a 10% revision surgery rate even in the most experienced hands. These are the main ones, for a more in depth account talk this over with your surgeon. Please let your surgeon know if you are allergic to elastoplast, latex rubber, iodine or any other drugs. 7) Are there any after effects following Cosmetic Rhinoplasty? Bruising and black eyes are so .mon as well as nasal blockage, light seepage of blood, temporary loss of smell and swelling. These are transient and should return to normal after several weeks. 8) Can the rhinoplasty be .bined with other procedures? It can be done in conjunction with a septoplasty i.e. straightening the nasal cartilage partition. This is called a septorhinoplasty and is a very .mon procedure performed by an Otolaryngologist ( Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon). It is also possible to have a chin augmentation or lip enhancement performed simultaneously. 9) How do I choose a Surgeon? There is no substitute for years of experience. It takes many years to be a .petent rhinoplasty surgeon and more so to deal with all the .plications that may arise. In the UK rhinoplasty is most .monly performed by an Otolaryngologist following trauma, nasal osbstruction and coexisting nasal problems. Functional and cosmetic surgery of the nose need a surgeon with advanced skills and knowledge together with years of experience in this specialist area. The nose sets the tone of the face, your nose must look good and function properly too. The art of the nasal plastic surgeon with the science of the otolaryngologist is brought together par excellence in cosmetic rhinoplasty, the most difficult procedure in facial cosmetic surgery!
