    Are not you happy with your nose? Go to rhinoplasty

    Are not you happy with your nose? Go to rhinoplasty

    Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is a plastic surgical technique that can improve a person’s appearance either by a physical problem of the nose or because the person wants to modify their appearance. But it does not necessarily change the appearance of the nose completely, only a part. You can achieve a proportional and harmonized nose in its shape and size.

    People who desire this technique, are people who want or need to change their image because they are complexed with what their nose is, either because it is large, deformed, or has had an accident. They also resort to this technique because it can correct birth defects such as a cracked nose, very large holes, eagle nose, short or problems arising from not being able to breathe well.

    General anesthesia is usually applied in cases less local anesthesia and sedation.

    What is nose surgery?

    It lasts between 1-3 hours, depending on the degree or severity of the intervention. If it is a deep nose reconstruction it usually takes a few more hours.

    The intervention is usually performed in a hospital or clinic, discharging the patient the next day.

    During the procedure, the skin is separated from the bone and cartilage, working them until the desired state is achieved.

    The incisions are made inside the nostrils normally. That way, you will not see any scar on the outside.

    At the end of the procedure, a plaster structure is placed on the nose to protect it and control the inflammation. In this way it does not deform and take on the appearance of the plaster cast. It is also normal to place a stopper in the nostrils to avoid bleeding.

    Who can benefit from a rhinoplasty?

    • Non-smoking rooms
    • Physically healthy people


    Precautions After Intervention

    After the first 24 hours, it is normal for the face and nose to be swollen. You may also notice some pressure, but it is very normal since it has been freshly operated.

    On the first day, your surgeon will advise you to be on your back with your head raised whenever you can.

    The first three days, you may have some purple areas towards the eyelids, for which it is very good to apply something cold in the areas more swollen. You do not have to worry since the swollen and purple areas usually disappear in a few days. After 72 hours, you can remove the plugs and cast iron on the 7th day, depending on what the surgeon tells or advises.

    You should avoid rough activities and intense exercise during the first few days, as well as gain weight. In short, any activity that can increase blood pressure. It is also not convenient to sun exposure in abundance the first month or makeup.

    After two weeks, the patient will be able to see the final result of his new image, although the internal scarring takes a little longer. In about 6 months, you will be able to see the final and permanent results.

    At our Vithas Xanit International Hospital, in the Cosmetic Surgery unit, our professional surgeons will attend to your case and advise you throughout the process for the results to be successful.
