How is Rhinoplasty Surgery performed?
Rhinoplasty also called as “Nose Job” is done on outpatient basis. An average it takes 1.5 to 3 hours for complete procedure.
For Closed Rhinoplasty, first incisions are made within the nostrils. In Open Rhinoplasty, incisions are made across the tissue between the nostrils and nostrils. In case additional cartilage is needed for augmenting the nose, patient’s nasal septum is used.
Shape of your nasal bones or cartilage can be changed in several ways, depending on how much needs to be modified, current nose’s structure, and available materials. For minor changes, the surgeon uses cartilage taken from deeper inside nose or from your ear. For major changes, surgeon uses cartilage from your rib, implants or bone from other parts of your body. Once changes are done, surgeon places the nose’s skin and tissue back and stitches the incisions in your nose.
Surgeon can also improve breathing, if the wall between the two sides of the nose (septum) is bent or crooked (deviated).
Once Rhinoplasty is done, you’ll be in a recovery room for couple of hours. You might be discharged same day or early next day.
