Nasoplasty or nose job is surgery to alter the nose. It can change its shape size or improve airflow. It enhances beauty, increases self-esteem, and relieves snoring and breathing problems. Nasoplasty procedure is not as popular as in earlier times because it has gone out of fashion, and most people believe it is better to go without surgery. However, 2/3 of patients with nose jobs are satisfied with the result after a year from surgery.
It involves cutting open the folds of skin on your chin or around your lips so that it can make room for your new one. There are different types of Nasoplasties: some doctors have a specific way to perform the surgery, so talk it through with your doctor.
The recovery process is not as painful or as long as expected. You will be able to breathe normally after the surgery. Your new nose will start living within every three months if it was significantly narrowed before. The swelling might take up to four weeks to go down completely. You should wait around two months after nasoplasty so you can exercise again.
The most usual risks are infection, bleeding, blood clots.
The operation can be done in different ways. The nose reshaping depends on how the doctor wants to change the nose. The surgeon can have a perfectly formed nose or make it more comprehensive. Having a narrow nasal passage may cause breathing problems, so this kind of surgery is usually needed. Since many people have breathing difficulties when they sleep, they get surgery to widen the nasal passage.
Techniques that surgeon uses for the surgeries of a nose with a bump:
To obtain purely aesthetic results, surgeons can perform Nasoplasty or Nasal retrusion, shaping the dorsal and palatal aspect of the maxilla with removing excess skin around it. To achieve aesthetic results when increasing the width of the nose with a bump, surgeons can use one of these techniques:
When doctors need to reduce the size of the nose, they can do this by cutting and removing excess skin. This is done without altering the shape of the nostrils or making any incisions on the columella and simply removing the skin that overhangs or is hanging down, resulting in a smaller nose. This can be done in three different ways.
The first is called Rostrum Excision. It involves simply cutting out excess skin around the tip (the protrusion). The cut is usually made along the columellar margin in a tiny V-shaped incision. The skin is then trimmed down to the natural borders of the nostrils, and the excess skin is removed.
Another method for reducing the size of the nose is by using a punch (a guide used to resect tissue from inside an object). The point is generally inserted into a nostril and moved up or down its axis, and the incision is made using a scalpel or diamond blade.
The third method uses a laser. It can be used either as a scalpel or as a light source. The advantage of this method is that it does not require general anaesthesia, and the nose is treated almost immediately. A special light beam, emitted through the tip of the nose in an arc and reflected through an eyepiece, is used to vaporise skin. The target area is vaporised without damaging surrounding tissue, allowing safer and deeper incisions.
What they use to achieve aesthetic resuls:
The nose can be shaped differently, which involves removing the tip and narrowing the nostrils. The most usual sign is a hump in the centre of your nostrils that can cause problems with breathing. Noise reduction is made by resecting nasoplasty or nasal retrusion, shaping the dorsal and palatal aspect with removing excess skin around it. To achieve aesthetic results when increasing the width of the nose, surgeons use one of these methods:
The first method, which removes only a tiny part of the tissue from each side and then reshapes it, has been used for more than fifty years. It is performed to reduce nostril hypertrophy or surgical treatment for nasal obstruction. It also removes the hump that occurs when too much cartilage in the nose.
The bridge is made thinner, smaller and shorter. The procedure can be done in different ways. Before the actual surgery, doctors make an incision (cut) underneath the tip of your nose. To prevent any swelling during the first week after surgery, which will help minimise pain. During this period, you will be given some prescriptions for pain relief to use if you need it.
A skin graft can also be taken from your thigh, the ear, or sometimes behind your ear. When this is performed, after the skin has been removed, it is then sewn back onto the new tip of your nose to reshape it.
In some cases, doctors will use a laser to perform this operation. The laser will be used to cut away and reshape all cartilage in the nose. This means that surgeons have more control in changing and sculpting the nose and reducing pain. This procedure can take up to five hours for one side of the nose, except for minor details, which can complete much faster.
After the surgery is completed, you will be given some prescriptions for pain relief to use if you need it. You will also have a bandage on your nose that has to stay on for a few days. If you are in a lot of pain or bleeding, notify your doctor immediately. You can remove it after 2–5 days. The stitches or staples used to close the wound are dissolvable and can be removed after a week or two if they don’t fall out by themselves. After the procedure, the nose might still feel numb for about a month and even longer in some cases.
Once you can work out, running and jogging should be performed after the swelling subsides so that you don’t stretch the skin of your nose and cause it to droop. While exercising, try not to push yourself too hard. Perform a warm-up before exercising, and do not overexert yourself.
Endoscopy (direct vision) surgery is a minimally invasive method of selecting the length and shape of the strut (or struts) used in your Nasoplasty. It also permits surgeons to work on areas of your nasal anatomy that cannot
