Rhinoplasty (RIE-no-plas-tee) is surgery that changes the shape of the nose. The motivation for rhinoplasty may be to change the appearance of the nose, improve breathing or both.
This surgery has no specific path and each operation is performed specifically based on the anatomy of the person’s nose and goals.
As with any major surgery, rhinoplasty carries risks such as Bleeding , Infection , An adverse reaction to the anesthesia. And also may have Difficulty breathing through the nose , Scarring , Possibility of nasal asymmetry (If you desire a more symmetrical nose, keep in mind that everyone’s face is asymmetric to some degree. Results may not be completely symmetric, although the goal is to create facial balance and correct proportion.)
Rhinoplasty is divided into local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. It depends on the complexity of the surgery and the surgeon’s preference. Before surgery, consult your doctor about which type of anesthesia is right for you.
To choose the right surgeon, you can refer to plastic surgeons, facial or ear and nose plastic surgeons (ENT) who perform the most cosmetic nose surgeries. Training and certification in one of these specialties is a good starting point. Make sure your surgery is performed at a reputable surgery center or hospital. Look for a surgeon who can make clear to you what is going to happen during your surgery.
