Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) in India

by Rishabh

The procedure of rhinoplasty (reconstructive nose surgery) is primarily done to enhance the shape of the nose, or reshaping of the nose tip and also to narrow down the nostril spans. A surgeon corrects congenital deformities, intracanal drug abuse, bent dorsum, and also works to correct the prior failed rhinoplasty surgery which needs restoration of form and nasal appearance. People with respiratory impediments, congenital defects or any other form of nasal trauma can also opt for rhinoplasty surgery. This surgery is performed to give a perfect nose which gives a more beautiful appearance to the face. More and more people are opting for this surgery for a perfect nose.

Rhinoplasty surgery (nose surgery), is also referred as ‘nose reshaping’ or a ‘nose job’. With the help of rhinoplasty, the overall look and appearance of the nose can be improved. Rhinoplasty can also help in curing breathing problems of the nose.

Cosmetic Nose Surgery

  • Open surgery and closed surgery are two options available for performing Rhinoplasty surgery. In closed surgery (intranasal), the surgeon makes the incisions from within the nose and in open surgery,  the two incisions are made from the nostril partition ( columella).
  • Reconstructive Nose Surgery: This surgery is done to correct any defect or to restore nasal functions.

The procedure of Rhinoplasty Surgery

The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia. During the surgery, the first step is to make incisions to examine the bones and cartilage that holds the nose. The tissue is also sometimes added in order to get the desired result. For this, many times bone and cartilage can be removed. After the bone and cartilage is arranged again, the tissue and the skin are draped again over the structure of the nose. To hold the new shape of the nose, a splint is placed on the outer side of the nose when it heals. Additional support is also provided by placing nasal packing from the inside of the nose.

Recovery from Rhinoplasty

The recovery may take a few weeks to heal completely. The surgeon prescribes medication such as antibiotics, analgesics and steroids to aid wound healing. The external cast can be removed after a week.
