Surgery , Nose Reconstruction Surgery
Fact about procedure
Considered as misshapen nose or one incompatible with other facial features may present an unacceptable image for individual.
Nose Surgery (Reduction) is performed to deformities resulting from birth defects, trauma or disease by improving function and/or appearance. For example, nose fracture with distortion, septal infection with saddle deformity or rhinoplasty for cleft lip deformity.
Nose Surgery is also performed to alleviate nasal obstruction to correct breating difficulties. Septoplasty (straightening of septal cartilage) and submucous resection (removal of a portion of septal cartilage) should be reconstructive.
Criteria of Approval
Be sure to tell your plastic surgeon if you've had any previous nose surgery or an injury to your nose, even if it was many years ago. You should also inform your plastic surgeon if you have any allergies or breathing difficulties; if you're taking any medications, vitamins, or recreational drugs; and if you smoke.
Nose Surgery may be performed under general anesthetic maybe used. Medication to relieve tension is given before the anesthetic is administered. The sedative and local anesthetic allow you to be comfortable during surgery.
In most Nose Surgery an incision is made inside the nostrils, through which the work will be done. The incision provides the plastic surgeon with access to cartilage and bone which can be cut, trimmed and manipulated to reshape the nose and alter its external appearance.
A hump is removed by using a sawing instrument or a chisel
and then bringing the nasal bones together to form a narrower
bridge. To improve the angle between the bottom portion of
nose and upper lip, the nasal tip is elevated. This is accomplished
by trimming the septum through the incisions in the nostrils.
If a large hump is removed, the base of the nose is disproportionately
wide. To narrow it, small skin wedges are removed and the nostrils
are brought closer to the center. Following Nose Surgery ,
composed of tape and plastic or plaster overlay is applied
to the nose to maintain bone and cartilage in their new shape.
The Nose Surgery procedure usually lasts from an hour and
a half to two hours or longer, depending on the extent of the

Post Operative Care
After the Nose Surgery operation, there is some pain that is easily controlled by medication. You will be asked to keep your head slightly elevated and apply cold compresses to your eyes to reduce postoperative bruising and swelling. Bruising around the eyes will begin to fade within a few days following the operation and will generally disappear within the next two to three weeks.
Since most aesthetic rhinoplasties are performed from inside the nose, there is no visible scarring. The degree of improvement depends on the extent of the corrective work undertaken and basic structure of your nose and skin.
It is common after some types of rhinoplasty for relative or friends to remark that they do not see a major difference. Do not consider such a reaction an indication of failure. On the contrary, if it looks better and natural, it may go unnoticed. The intention, after all, is not to create a “new” nose that draws attention to itself but rather on e that blend subtly into the overall features of the face in the proper proportions.
To permit proper healing activities which raise blood pressure such as jogging, swimming or even bending should be restricted during the first few weeks. The decision to return to work depends on the individual’s degree of swelling and discomfort.
