This kind of surgery has been practiced over the longest period of time and is the very first on the face.
As of 17 years of age, all disgraceful noses can be modified starting from bumps, deviation a dropping nose and a fatty tip.
The first advice is of utmost importance, digital photographs will be taken to study and discern harmony between face and nose. Computer simulation helps find a range of surgery possibilities.
Local anaesthesia is sufficient for the tip or nostrils combined with neuro-lept analgesy for other operations.
The scar is on the inner part of the nostrils, but sometimes a scar is placed on the outer part, and most often invisible. The rhinoplasty requires one day in clinic.
When the bone has to be corrected the nose must be mobilized in a splint or a cast for eight days. Ecchymoses might appear as well as eye lid oedemas for about 15 days. The latter is over within a month’s time and the final result can be seen within six month to a year.
Rhinoplasty, one of the most delicate plastic surgery operations, is a real challenge because of the fact that the nose is the central part of the face and directly linked to one’s personality.
A successful nose repair means a discrete nose, in harmony with the face and which breathes well. A nose must not bear the surgeons signature neither be a copy of a well known star.
