Rhinoplasties are, besides breast lifting, one of the most popular surgeries in terms of plastic surgery. This is no wonder as the nose is an important facial feature and is directly visible for everyone. The nose does not only affect the whole outer appearance but also the mimic. However, the nose is often recognized as a problematic part of the body, because it is either too big, too broad or too crooked and therefore, it makes the face asymmetrical. Under some circumstances, a Rhinoplasty can also have a medical reason, e.g. if the breathing is restricted due to a too crooked or too slim nose. In both cases, a Rhinoplasty can be seen as an effective solution.
A Rhinoplasty is a challenging procedure
A Rhinoplasty is classified as a complex and challenging procedure, because in contrast to a lot of other plastic surgeries, this surgery directly works with cartilages and bones. The possibilities of a Rhinoplasty are diverse, because they are based on the type and extent of the correction. In most cases, the patient wants a straight bridge of the nose or a reduction. This surgery will be carried out under general anaesthesia and stationary. Pain and bleeding will be curbed by the local injection of vasoconstrictive and narcotic substances.

In order to professionally medicate the nose, the doctor has to come near the nose frame. For this, a closed access will be set with the help of a cut at the nasal mucosa. There are not going to be visible scars, because the skin coat stays closed. A disadvantage of this procedure is the problem of precise corrections afterwards. Therefore, an open access is the alternative. In this case, both cuts will be set on both sites of the nasal mucosa. As a result, there will be scar which heals well and is hardly visible.
The possibilities of a Rhinoplasty are diverse: if the nose is crooked to the site, the whole nasal skeleton will be worked on; if only a hump has to be eliminated, excessive bones and cartilages will be severed. Sometimes even transplants are used in order to achieve a beautiful and straight nose. The doctor explains the different possibilities in detail in order to determine the best method of treatment and to clarify all possible questions.
As already mentioned before, a Rhinoplasty is a challenging facial plastic surgery and is therefore also known as the “king’s intervention of plastic surgery”. However, the patient does not have to fear the surgery if he visits an experienced and versed doctor who is exactly aware of what he is doing. Moreover, possible complications after the surgery are rare. Of course, swellings, bruises and light pains can occur but decay after a short time. After the surgery, the nose will be immobilized by a gypsum for approximately one week and a hospital stay of 1-2 days is necessary. In general, a close season of three weeks is recommended and any sport activities can be carried out after 12 weeks. The final result can be admired after nine to twelve months, when the excessive skin and swellings are completely decayed.
