RHINOPLASTY

The plastic surgery of the nose, called RHINOPLASTY, is very important to those who have it. First because of its respiratory function. Those who have breathing difficulty consequently breathe with their mouth open, bringing many bad consequences to their respiratory treat. So, when necessary, the respiratory function must also be corrected with the aesthetic procedure. The nose is the central structure of the face and it plays a very important role in the aesthetic harmony of the face. RHINOPLASTY must not be performed with the goal of having a nose similar to so-and-so´s nose, but of bringing it into harmony with the overall facial structure. To harmonize it, the surgeon must first analyze the set face/nose in details and then choose the right technique to achieve the aimed result. RHINOPLASTY is a kind of plastic surgery that can turn a person beautiful or even enhance her/his beauty.

This surgery must be performed in a hospital with general anesthesia or local anesthesia plus sedation. Patients usually stay in hospital for 24 hours. A nasal splint or bandages are placed on the nose (plaster, aquaplast, etc), in order to support and protect the new structures, in addition to prevent the edema (swelling) from expanding. When the plaster is removed, after a week, the patient can already have an idea of the result. But this is just an initial idea, once the operated area still shows swelling and bruises. After three or four weeks most of the swelling is dissipated, but it may still take from six to twelve months for the patient to see the final outcome. Main restrictions to the patients are related to sun exposition, wearing glasses and physical exercises.

Deformities of the nose are significantly visible and may be a nuisance. The RHINOPLASTY, when successful, provides the patient with a high degree of satisfaction and improves his/her self-esteem. Due to its long-time existence and importance to the self-satisfaction and self-esteem of the patients this surgical procedure has been studied extensively along the years by many plastic surgeons.
