The Rhinoplasty, also known as Nose operation, is surgery aimed at Harmonize the nose Under both aesthetically and in a functional way, improving the breathing function. Not all Nose operation It is the same, because it depends on its shape and the characteristics of the face, obtaining a different result of the remodeling depending on its physical characteristics. For this reason many plastic surgeons have specialized in this type of surgery, as is the case of Dr. García-Dihinx, who after 30 years of experience, comes to understand perfectly the emotions and feelings of each patient, and adapts their interventions to the factions and their needs to achieve the best result in the Nose surgery.

The aim of rhinoplasty is to achieve both a size and a proportions appropriate to the aesthetic ideal that we currently have.  They can be of two types mainly: of increase or reducers. In other races with diferenes nasal architectures to the European one, augmentation rhinoplasty interventions are often carried out that generally have less projected and wider noses.

In our society, on the other hand, rhinoplasty is usually reductive. The most typical is that nose that is too large, usually has a protrusion on the back (called Giba), and the tip is usually dropped. During the rhinoplasty intervention, this anomaly is corrected and many other factors can be improved.

The flexibility of this intervention usually makes the first consultation with the surgeon very thorough and intense. In it, the patient should expose with clarity and conciseness (with the help of the surgeon) which are the characteristics he wants to correct and what expectations he has.

The role of the surgeon in this case is to advise on this, and even if it is necessary in case of unrealistic expectations, explain that there are certain characteristics that are not susceptible to correction in depending on what situations, since rhinoplasty is limited by the patient’s nasal genetic architecture, as well as the characteristics of its skin.

Basically, there are two types of procedures for rhinoplasty:

(1) Open rhinoplasty: This type of intervention has much more work than closed rhinoplasty. In it, the surgeon performs an incision with the aim of gaining accessibility to bones and cartilages. This type of operation is not the most common, and tends to be practiced in very complicated cases or in second operations.

Closed Rhinoplasty: Instead, this is usually the technique most used by surgeons. Patients often like the results of this type of intervention for the following reason: it leaves no visible scar, there is no incision in the middle area of the nose, but it is accessed to the cartilage, septum or the area on which the action must be carried out through the nostrils. With this technique, the surgeon can access the vast majority of problematic areas, being able to shape the section until the nose has the desired aesthetic shape.

In this way, no internal incisions are made, which is more comfortable for the patient, by the fact of seeing without any visible scar.

Nose operation – what drives us?

Each patient has his or her own reasons for a rhinoplasty, either to improve the health or to improve the facial proportion.

  • Improve the shape, length or angle of the nose.
  • Provide the nose with the face.
  • Breathing problems inside the nose.
  • Nose deflected or broken.
  • Wide nostrils.
  • Altered nasal morphology by trauma.

Nose surgery-process

The information and prior analysis of the nose operation is the basis for patient satisfaction.

If you’re thinking about submitting to a Rhinoplasty You must take into account the process by which you must pass to get your results.

On the first visit, the surgeon will study the shape, size and structure of the nose and what our skin type is. Also the facial features, because we should not forget that the main objective is that we want to achieve a natural result and in harmony with the rest of the face.

It is essential that both in this first visit and in the following, the patient communicates to her surgeon what she is hoping to get from this surgery and to ask her about all the doubts she has. So it will be easier for both the surgeon and the patient to know what can be achieved

The first thing that is done when a patient goes to the clinic is to make photographs that serve as a study and in this way can Planning for Nose Surgery. We’ll study the thickness of the skin, the asymmetries, the characteristics of the nasal cartilage, the proportion of the facial architecture, etc. Once all of these data are known, the surgeon will inform the patient of how the nose operation, what is the best way to do it and the result you are going to get.

It is very important that the Customer report to Surgeon If you have had any type of nasal trauma or if you have breathing problems that are often caused by allergies. You will also be asked about other data, such as taking some kind of medication or if you smoke regularly.

From this moment you will be prepared (medically) to undergo rhinoplasty.

A nose operation is usually Last between 1 and 2 hours, although in complex cases it may take longer. During surgery, the skin of the nose is separated from its support, composed of bone and cartilage, which is sculpted with the desired shape. Finally the skin is redistributed on this new support. Many plastic surgeons perform this procedure from inside the nose, making small incisions inside the nostrils; Others prefer to make an open rhinoplasty, especially for the more complex cases, in which a small incision is made in the columella.

The incisions of the mucous membranes are closed with absorbable sutures. The skin incisions have to be faced with monofilament sutures of 5 or 6 zeros. Nasal tamponade with wicked gauze impregnated with antibiotic creams or semi-rigid splints coated with oily substances should be performed. Only in this way is it possible to reduce the recovery time and avoid possible infections.

External containment is done with a plaster or predesigned nasal splint with plastic materials, which are molded with heat.

Before placing the nasal splint, it is advisable to immobilize the cutaneous plane with sterile adherent bands for the nasal pyramid and nasal tip. The containment is then placed to keep the nose in the desired position during the consolidation process. It is necessary to avoid that the splint is too tight, so that in the following hours the recovery is important to observe its state.

Rhinoplasty – Recovery

As important as nose surgery is patient care in recovery.

Every intervention and the personal situation of each patient makes Each recovery of rhinoplasty is different. The surgeon will evaluate your case and inform you of the time that must pass until you can do the day-to-day activities in a normal way, which will also bring back to work. During this time of rest, some instructions on care should also be carried out on the Post-operative Rhinoplasty To be taken into account.

In general, except for rare cases, within the first 24 hours after the Nose operation It is common to feel the swollen face and headache, so the doctor prescribes the corresponding medication. During this time, it is best to be lying with your head elevated.

In addition, the patient will notice how bruising appears under the eyes to become more noticeable the second and the third day after the nose surgery. To stop the inflammation, it is best to apply cold packs.

The first two days will also have two caps on the nasal passages to prevent dirt from entering them. After removing them in the 48 hours later, you will notice a great improvement, because the sensation of having these plugs in the holes becomes very uncomfortable.

The splint to avoid blows and properly seal the new shape of the nose, is removed at approximately 10 days, depending on the patient’s recovery can also be removed a week. In addition, with the removal of the splint, the points of the intervention will be removed.

It should be taken into account that the return to normal, and above all, the return to work, depends fundamentally on the type of work that the patient has to perform. Normally, a worker may join his or her post when the splint is removed, but in the case of jobs where it is necessary to wear glasses or long exposure to the sun, the post-operative rhinoplasty can be extended to two months.
