About Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape or correct the shape of the nose. This is an aesthetic surgery which can be favorable in several conditions such as-

  • -Face deformity- If a person has any face deformity like cleft palate, that causes disproportionate facial features, it can be repaired through rhinoplasty surgery
  • -Natural shape of the nose- The procedures done in rhinoplasty to reconstruct the structure of the nose. If a person is conscious about the natural shape and finds it asymmetrical to the facial features, that correction can be made through rhinoplasty
  • -Injury by accident- There are unfortunate times when some accidents happen and cause facial injuries. The injuries can be repaired by rhinoplasty surgery by reshaping the bone and uplifting the cartilage of the nose. This will give a better contour and suitable structure to the nose
  • -Breathing issues- Some people complain about breathing issues caused by deviation in the nose structure. Breathing issues may happen because of a deviated septum. The septum is the thin wall that separates both nostrils. Such deviation commonly causes sinus infection and a stuffy nose. This can lead to painful inflammation, bacterial infection and difficulty in breathing. Rhinoplasty corrects the deviated septum to resolve all the issues related to breathing.

The surgeon who performs rhinoplasty surgery will have a brief consultation with you to investigate the medical condition including lab tests, surgical goals about the structure of the nose, taking photographs of the nose from different profiles and will explain you the rhinoplasty procedure.

The process of shaping or contouring a nose is called rhinoplasty. There are two types of procedures through which rhinoplasty is performed-

  • Closed Procedure- This surgery is done by making minor incisions that are hidden inside the nostrils. The skin on the outside of the nose will stay scarless. This procedure is usually done for modifications of the nose structure like the nasal bridge.
  • Open procedure- This procedure gives access to the surgeon and more possible changes are noticeable post surgery. The incisions in the open procedure are made outside of the nose in a Z-shaped pattern. Though, the scar will be visible post this procedure but will be healed by the time.

How to prepare yourself for rhinoplasty surgery in Mumbai?

  • Patients should get a good sleep a night before surgery.
  • Avoid wearing any kind of makeup before going for surgery.
  • As specialists suggest, patients should not be taking any aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs at least 2-3 weeks prior to the rhinoplasty surgery
  • this will increase the level of bleeding.
  • Last but not the least, patients should refrain from smoking before and after surgery as that will alter the blood flow in the body.

What is the Duration of the Recovery Post Rhinoplasty

The recovery or healing period post rhinoplasty is usually two-four weeks. Patients might notice swelling and bruising which will disappear after some time with prescribed medication.

  • During the first two weeks after surgery, patients should avoid any kind of exercise that can cause nose bleeding or nasal swelling. Once the cast or splint is removed you can see the major changes in the shape.
  • Maintaining a healthy diet will help patients to recover faster, refraining from smoking is necessary as it would cause fluctuation in blood flow and reduce the ability to heal quicker.
  • Patients should get plenty of rest and should not blow their noses. Keep your head elevated most of the time to make the recovery smoother.
  • There is no major complications post rhinoplasty as stated by patients who have undergone the procedure. Therefore to make the recovery healthy and earliest, the patient should follow all the given instructions by doctors. You see yourself mostly recovered after 7-8 weeks of surgery.

What is non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is the procedure in which injectable fillers are used to alter the shape of the nose. It is also known as a liquid nose job and is done with the help of derma fillers. Mostly hyaluronic acid, like Juvederm, calcium hydroxyapatite, or Restylane is used for this procedure. It is very effective in filling the depressed areas of the nose, lifting the tip, or smoothing out the bumps and bridges on the nose.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is more like an augmentation procedure, hence, it cannot help to reduce the size of the nose. Like any surgical procedure, this non-surgical treatment has some risks and complications. So, if you want to change the nose shape through this technique, make sure that you have a detailed consultation and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure.

Difference between Open & Closed Rhinoplasty

Open and closed rhinoplasty are two different techniques that can be used to change the shape and structure of the nose. The key differences between these two techniques are explained below:

  • Open rhinoplasty is done through an incision around the columella whereas, in closed technique, the incisions are made inside the nose.
  • Open rhinoplasty allows the surgeon to measure the true anatomy of the nose and perform detailed and precise work. However, closed rhinoplasty limits the access of the surgeon to the internal structures.
  • The open technique for nose jobs is effective but it may leave a scar whereas closed surgery doesn’t cause scarring on the face.
  • Closed rhinoplasty takes less time to perform whereas open rhinoplasty requires longer for surgery as well as recovery.
  • Open rhinoplasty is preferred when the patient is getting a revision nose job or needs major changes. However, closed surgery is done when the patient requires nasal bridge modifications or minor changes.

Recovery Timeline of Rhinoplasty

The rhinoplasty surgeon will explain the recovery timeline of the nose job. Typically, the final results of rhinoplasty will take around one year to become clearly visible. It may sound like a very long time but it is a critical period that will determine whether rhinoplasty surgery was worth it.

  • Week 1- The doctor will remove the splint from the nose and you can go out in public. There will still be visible bruising around the eyes.
  • Week 2- The swelling and bruising around the eyes will subside and it will be safe to resume daily activities.
  • Week 3-4- You can perform activities like jogging, swimming, cycling, and other cardiovascular exercises.
  • Week 6- The bone and cartilage will take a stable shape and you can start working out, wearing glasses, and even blowing your nose.
  • Week 3-6- The numbness in the nose will resolve completely and your sense of smell will also improve.
  • 1 Year- The healing process will be complete and the nose’s shape will be refined.

You can speed up the healing process by listening to the doctor’s advice and taking proper care of your nose.

Recovery Tips After Rhinoplasty Surgery

Many people don’t realize this but the recovery period is the most crucial phase to get the desired results from rhinoplasty surgery. You will be able to achieve the best results by following the recovery tips below:

  • Keep the swelling in control by using an ice pack or cooling pads. This will help to alleviate the pressure and reduce puffiness in the treated area. It will also promote faster healing by constricting the blood flow to the nose.
  • Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medicines unless prescribed by your doctor. These medicines can increase the swelling and blood flow that will slow down the healing process.
  • Do not take painkillers or any other medicines without consulting with the doctor. Talk to the doctor to get a specific dosage for the pain medications to ensure that the medicine doesn’t cause any adverse reactions or hinder the healing process.
  • Take sufficient time off your work or school to focus on healing. Give your body proper rest to recover quickly. Minimize physical activities to prevent stress and injury to the nose.
  • Take a bath rather than having a shower. You will have bandages, splints, and supports in and around the nose. They should not get wet until removed by the doctor. Hence, for at least the first week, you’ll have to wash your face with a damp cloth around the bandages.
  • Eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water during the recovery. This will ensure that you are getting plenty of nutrients that promote faster healing. Drinking plenty of water will help to flush out toxins from the body, reducing the chances of infection.
  • Avoid blowing your nose unless it has healed properly and the support devices are removed. If you blow the nose while the splint is inside, it may dislodge or shift them. This can injure the nose and compromise the healing process.
  • Make sure that you stay away from peppery and spicy foods that can cause irritation in your nose, especially in the early stages of healing. Reduce your salt intake as much as possible. Excessive salt intake will increase the swelling and pressure around the surgical site. Therefore, it is best to avoid salty foods or add salt to food items.
  • Try to keep your head elevated most of the time, especially during sleeping or resting. Place a pillow under your head to keep the fluid from building up around the face.

Take post-surgery follow-up appointments with the doctor to ensure that your nose is healing properly after rhinoplasty. The doctor will monitor whether the results are closer to what you desire or not. The doctor will also check if the splints or bandages need replacement.
