In general, a candidate for this type of surgery must be in good physical health, including psychological stability, not smoking and have accepted the possible risks, reaching an agreement with the surgeon on the real and possible expectations that can be had after the surgery. .

Age should also be taken into account. It is advisable not to perform a rhinoplasty until the “pull” has been given and facial growth is complete, that is, until 15 – 16 years of age in children.

What is nose surgery?

It is a 1 to 3 hour outpatient process, although surgeries to correct more complicated problems may take longer. It is usually carried out using general anesthesia although it is also performed under local anesthesia and sedation. Generally stays overnight.

The procedure consists of separating the skin of the nose from its bone and cartilage support, which is sculpted with the desired shape. Thus, the skin is redistributed and adapted on this new support.

The intervention can be performed from inside the nose, making small incisions inside the nostrils, or from the outside, using an open rhinoplasty, especially for more complex cases, in which a small incision is made in the columella.

When the surgery is complete, a thermoplastic resin splint is placed on the back of the nose, which will help maintain the new shape of the nose. Nasal plugs are also placed in both holes to prevent bleeding and stabilize the nasal septum.

 

After rhinoplasty

After surgery, and mainly, during the first 24 hours, the patient may notice a swollen face, discomfort over the nose and headache, which will disappear with the passing of days and medication. It is recommended to sleep with the head of the bed elevated to reduce inflammation. The swelling and bruising around the eyes disappear in about 2 weeks (minimal swelling, only noticeable by the surgeon, may last for a few months). The nasal packing is usually removed in 1 or 2 days, while the splint and skin points are removed after one or two weeks.
Most of the patients notice an improvement 2 days after having undergone the intervention, although their labor incorporation does not take place until after a week. Physical activities such as swimming or jogging should be avoided during the first weeks and above all, take special care when touching your nose and washing your face.
Any intervention presents risks of complications, such as infection or reactions to anesthesia, but in a rhinoplasty they are not common and are usually of little importance. It is essential to follow the instructions of the surgeon and his team before and after the intervention to minimize the possibility of these complications.

 

The results

Most men who have undergone rhinoplasty are very satisfied with the decision to have it done, as cosmetic modifications can improve breathing, increase self-esteem, and achieve greater balance in their facial features.
Our greatest success is to make the patient feel comfortable with his new facial harmony, in a natural way, without showing an operated nose.
Patients who undergo rhinoplasty obtain satisfactory and permanent aesthetic results. Scars are usually minimal and inconspicuous. In some cases small red dots appear in the treated area but their appearance will gradually improve and after a week or two you will be able to appreciate the results without discomfort. The final results are appreciated one year after the intervention since the skin has to adapt to the modifications that have been made to the bones and cartilage.
