When I hear about rhinoplasty, a new face comes to my mind. It is of Bibi Aisha, an afghan girl of 19 years who was just brutally harmed and got her nose chopped off by her cruel husband. She showed an open face of an afghan lady in the cover page of Time, one of the popular magazines across US. Here is where rhinoplasty has its all priority.
Can you imagine a girl with her nose sliced off coming back to life after a couple of months with a new nose flap? Though earlier, it may be a matter of concern now it’s never an issue with an easy rhinoplasty. Actually, the word rhinoplasty had its birth from two Greek terms, rhinos mean nose and ‘plassein’, to shape. It is done as an operative procedure in order to improve nose appearance or enhance or normalize the function of the nose.
It is performed by an otolaryngologist or an ENT surgeon. Nose shaping or nose job is another name of rhinoplasty. Some of the indications of rhinoplasty include birth defects, traumatic injuries affecting nose and nasal septum, cosmetic problems etc. it is also done in adjunct with chin augmentation procedures. Rhinoplasty is usually performed under local or general anesthesia. It is done through two approaches; one is an open approach where an extra incison is placed at columella, a thin membrane splitting two nostrils. Closed approach deals with the rhinoplasty where incisions are made in the nostrils.
Rhinoplasty is of primary and secondary types. Primary rhinoplasty is done as an initial cosmetic or functional procedure. Secondary rhinoplasty, as the name suggests is done secondary to primary rinoplastia preço and is very common with almost 5- 20% of cases. There are a lot more new interventions brought in the rhinoplasty. It’s very useful in refurbishing the air flow, reforming the normal contour and many more. Congenital problems, nasal obstructions, skin cancer excisions, vascular abnormalities etc are treated successfully with rhinoplasty.
Laser rhinoplasty is also done for simple problems. Non surgical rhinoplasty deals with procedure that does not involve any open penetration but treating by injecting medicines and other line of treatment. Non surgical treatment is usually done in an outpatient setting.
Though less, there are some major complications related to rhinoplasty. One is bleeding or hematoma formation as in the case of any surgical procedure, infections, scar formation or adhesions, whistling and difficulty in breathing due to crusting, polly beak deformity etc.
