Rhinoplasty surgery is a very popular cosmetic procedure performed by surgeons in the region. Our surgeon understands the requirements of patients, and how to achieve a well-structured nose that blends with the patient’s highlighted features.
Key Highlights of a Rhinoplasty Surgery Procedure
Rhinoplasty surgery is performed either using a closed procedure, where the incisions are made inside of the nose, or an open procedure, where cuts are made across the columella. The experienced surgeon will then raise the soft tissues that cover the nose through these incisions. This provides access to reshape the structure of the nose. The nasal structure is reduced or reshaped using the cartilage grafted from other areas of the patient’s body. These pieces of cartilage can come from the septum or occasionally from the ear or the rib cartilage. If the septum deviated, this should straighten it. Apart from this, any ridges inside the nose will be reduced, to improve breathing as a result. Thereafter, once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted, the nasal skin and tissue are re-shaped and the incisions are then closed. A cast or support will be placed after the procedure for recovery purposes. The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the surgical procedure.
Even though this is a very modern and widespread procedure, many people are still not very confident, about undergoing such a life changing procedure, as they for fear that the results would be unfavorable or not as what was expected. However, finding the best surgeon in Dubai is the key to a successful Rhinoplasty surgery. Many patients who undergo Rhinoplasty surgery in Dubai, find that the results are satisfactory, impressive and life changing and increases their level of confidence and boost their self-esteem.
Who makes a good candidate for Rhinoplasty?
- Healthy individuals over the age of fifteen, who want to improve the structure of their nose
- Have breathing problems or find difficulty in breathing on a daily basis
- Be in good physical and emotional health
- Unsatisfied or suffer from low self-confidence with the size and shape of the nose
- Suffered an injury that has altered the physical structure of the nose
Rhinoplasty surgery can be also performed as an outpatient treatment and the duration of the procedure will depend on the type of surgery that is performed.
The recovery process can take time, like any other surgery. Patients will experience difficulty in breathing for the first 24 hours, due to swelling in the nasal passage. There may be some discomfort, which can be controlled with pain medication prescribed. There may also be limited bleeding during the first few days and it is recommended that a cold compress (ice bag or frozen peas) should be held to the nose to reduce swelling. The head should be kept elevated for the first 24 hours, especially during sleeping hours. After a week, the cast or splint is removed by professional surgeons.
Complete results of a rhinoplasty surgery are not immediately recognized or noticeable and can take up to one year to be fully evident.
The decision to have cosmetic surgery done is an important and personal decision; you should first consult with our board of certified plastic surgeons before making a final decision and we assure the best of advice.
