Why is the nose job done?
Rhinoplasty surgery is carried out for two purposes:
Cosmetic reasons– This includes correction of various nose imperfections like-
- The hump at the nasal dorsum or bridge
- Nose tip which is too wide, blobby, round, poorly-defined, or beaked
- Improper length and width of the nose
- Too broad or narrow nostrils
Medical reasons- This includes the nose deformities (shape aberrations) post-trauma of the nose or nasal airway problems like internal valve collapse and deviated nasal septum (a twisted nose). The surgery can help reposition and restructure the nose after the injury and even open up the nasal airways to improve breathing. In such cases, surgical interventions are classified as reconstructive plastic surgeries.
What does the nose job surgery entail?
Initial consultation- In the first visit with the plastic surgeon, the patient is free to talk with the doctor about any cosmetic concerns. The surgeon takes initial photographs of the nose for future reference and thoroughly examines the nose from inside out.
Preparation for the surgery- The surgeon often recommends avoiding anything that can cause bleeding, bruising, or swelling and delay healing. Hence, one month before the surgery, patients must stop the intake of blood thinners, alcohol, caffeine, and stop smoking.
Prior to the operation of the nose, the patient may be asked to obtain routine bloodwork, and sometimes preoperative clearance from the primary healthcare provider. The evening before the surgery, the patient must keep the stomach empty after midnight or about 6-8 hours prior to the surgery.
Procedural steps– The surgery is done as an outpatient procedure taking about 1-3 hours and is carried out usually under general anesthesia. There are two ways to perform the surgery:
Closed rhinoplasty- In this approach, the cuts are made in the internal nostril region (i.e. hidden inside the nose). Thus, there is no risk of scarring.
Open rhinoplasty- This method involves making cuts are made both internally as well as externally i.e. few millimeters across the columella (a narrow strip of tissue separating the nostrils). It results in visible scars.
After making incisions, the nose skin is undraped allowing access to the inner nasal structures. This allows the surgeon to make required alterations. The nasal structure is reshaped by either shaving down the nasal bones and cartilages or by using additional cartilage to augment the nose framework. If there is any deviated nasal septum, its repositioned. Once, the nose is sculpted as per the desired shape, the skin and tissues are re-draped and all the incisions are closed with stitches. After the surgery, a splint is placed over the nose which is removed after one week.
What is the recovery after surgery and when can one see the final results?
Result and recovery- Immediately after the operation, the patient may regain consciousness in the recovery room where all vitals will be monitored. Post-surgery, the patient may have slight swelling that subsides within a few weeks and may come and go. Painkillers are prescribed to get relief from any discomfort. The final results usually take up to a year to appear. During the recovery time, gradual changes appear in the nose. Typically, the downtime of the surgery is of one or two-week period. Most patients can recover rapidly within 5 to 6 days (usually for closed procedures). Walking is permitted on the same day of the surgery but strenuous activities must be limited for three weeks following the surgery.
