Aesthetic and functional Rhinoplasty


 Breathing freely and looking beautiful

Aesthetic and functional rhinoplasty is the most common plastic surgery in our country, and is often combined with chin and ear corrections and simultaneous dewlap liposuction.

The nose is the center of the face and any change in shape or size can alter the expression.  What is important in the surgery design is not simply the choice of a perfect nose, but that of the perfect shape and size, that best suits the person. Thus, the design and use of digital simulation are essential tools for selecting both the shape and size. The digital simulation enables one to foresee the post surgical result (before & after image). This way the comprehension of what is expected from a plastic surgery involving this feature, and all possible options is fully understood.

Rhinoplasty also improves or corrects malfunctions, injuries, anatomical malformations. Rhinoplasty can restore aesthetic or functional deviations so the simultaneous presence of specialized treatment ensures optimal results. The nasal septum supports the nasal bridge and ensures oxygen supply. Scoliosis,  snoring, disorders in breathing, can be restored by alignment of the septum.

The need for surgical intervention may concern the size, or shape of the nose, or the tip only.  It may also concern the nostrils or their width.

Rhinoplasty can achieve expression intensity and excellence in form as the nose is the most dominant facial feature. The correction may involve parts of or the entire feature.  The surgery involves intervention through the nostrils with small internal cuts that enable the detachment of the mucosa and also allows the surgeon to work on the bone or cartilaginous frame.  The stitches used are absorbable. The operation may be performed on patients after their 18 years of age. Rhinoplasty is conducted under general anesthesia.  For smaller improvements, though, it is performed under local anesthesia.

Following surgery, nose pads are placed internally and removed the next day. Also, a cast is applied for about a week. According to the operation design the patient may stay in the hospital overnight or may leave for home  a few hours later, with post operation instructions.
The swelling and bruising that appear under the eyes,  will subside within a few days.  After one week, the cast is removed and one may return to normal activities. The swelling subsides gradually.

Before surgery, the patient should be thoroughly informed on all aspects of the operation.  The serenity of knowing what to expect is always important for the outcome of any intervention
Rhinoplasty illustrates the dynamics of the newly refreshed image. The facial expression, free from malformed lines remains unchanged while confidence is boosted into new perspective.
