Cosmetic Nose surgery Procedures
Cosmetic nose surgery is done either by “open” or “close” method.
“Open” method – By this technique nasal bone is accessed by incisions inside the nostrils and columella. Columella is the structure that separates the nostril in two parts.
“Close” method – nasal bone is accessed by incisions inside the nostril and thereafter, skin is lifted away from the underlying bones and cartilages.
Nose augmentation requires something to be put inside the nose and this can be cartilage, bone or artificial material like silicone. Dr. Adhikari usually uses costal cartilage taken via a small incision made in your chest and bone obtained from multiple sites. He is not in favor of using silicone because of the long term complications associated with it.
Stitches – Incisions are closed with dissolving stitches.
Anesthesia And After Surgery care
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia which means that you would be put to sleep during the procedure. Depending on your recovery, you have to stay for a few days in the hospital as postoperative molding takes place. Nasal swelling is imperative and the final results can be judged only after the swelling goes away which is usually a few months’ time.
After Surgery Complication
Complications include bleeding, infection, deformities and those related to harvesting of cartilage and bone.
Risk of Rhinoplasty
It is imperative to have temporary swelling and bruising around the eyes and nose.
● Injury on the nasal septum
