Rhinoplasty is surgery to repair or reshape the nose. This may be performed for cosmetic reasons to improve the appearance and proportion of the nose and improve a person’s self-confidence. Plastic surgery of the nose can also correct breathing problems caused by structural abnormalities in the nose due to injury or birth defect.
The nose is a key defining characteristic of any face. The shape and size of the nose influences the face’s overall harmony, balance and proportions. Even a slight alteration in shape or size can greatly enhance overall facial appearance, just as a slight distortion can have an amplifying negative effect.
Rhinoplasty is not always about appearance. It is often undertaken to remove physical obstructions to facilitate better breathing, better sleep and better health. Nose surgery is performed for both aesthetic and functional reasons. If any of these conditions apply to you, you might benefit from nose surgery.
TYPES OF NOSE SURGERY
OPEN rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty are two approaches to reshaping the nasal tip. Open rhinoplasty means that there is an incision along the columella (soft tissue between the nostrils), while closed rhinoplasty means that all of the incisions are inside of the nostril.
ALARPLASTY – Nostril reduction surgery, is a type of cosmetic surgery that alters the appearance and narrows the span and base of the nostrils to make the nose appear more balanced and symmetrical with the remainder of the face. People with wide and/or flared nostrils may consider this type of surgery.
AUGMENTATION – Rhinoplasty “nose jobs” to build up the shape of the nose. Surgery to reshape the nose is a very common plastic surgery procedure and it can both increase or decrease the size of nose. The shape of the tip, the bridge and also the nostrils can be changed as can the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
SEPTOPLASTY is a surgical procedure that’s done to fix a deviated nasal septum. A deviated septum occurs when the cartilage that separates your nostrils is out of position. This can cause breathing problems, nosebleeds, and pain.
TIP PLASTY is the correction of nasal tip deformity in cosmetic surgery of nose.Bulbous tip deformities are corrected best by an external rhinoplasty approach than endonasal route.
