TYPES OF RHINOPLASTY
There are two most prominent types of this cosmetic surgery i.e. reduction and augmentation rhinoplasty. These are widely used to solve your nasal problems.
The prime objective of this kind of surgery is to reduce the size of the nose by removing the different tissues. Sometimes, the bone is cut in the nostril whereas many times it is rearranged to give your nose a proper and shorter shape. The outer skin is however left untouched so that it gradually gets draped in the new shape. Fine scar marks on the nose may remain for some days ( and then fade away) as surgeons need to make proportional incisions for better shaping.
This process is suited for people with small and constrained noses which can be made to look wider and larger by adding extra tissues through cuts. The extra cartilage or bone used in this procedure is mostly grafted from the Chest, hips, back elbow, skull, etc. Sometimes, spare cartilage is also taken from the ears or artificial implants are implanted to reshape the nose properly.
Rhinoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that takes approximately 80-90 minutes to be accomplished successfully. However, you may suffer from some after-effects such as numbness and discomfort for a few weeks.

The best candidates for rhinoplasty
The best candidates for rhinoplasty are those looking for improvement, not perfection, in their appearance. If you are physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
Rhinoplasty can be performed to achieve aesthetic goals or for reconstructive purposes – to correct birth defects or respiratory problems.
Age can also be a consideration. Many surgeons prefer not to operate on teens until they have completed their growth spurt – about 14 or 15 for girls, a little later for boys.
Schedule your nose surgery
Good communication between you and your doctor is essential. In your initial consultation, the surgeon will ask what your nose should look like, evaluate the structure of your nose and face, and discuss the options with you. He or she also explains the factors that can influence the procedure and the results. These factors include the structure of your nasal bones and cartilage, the shape of your face, the thickness of your skin, your age, and your expectations.
Your surgeon will also explain the techniques and anesthesia he will use, the type of facility where the surgery will be performed, the risks and costs involved, and any options you have.
Be sure to tell your surgeon if you have had nasal surgery or an injury to your nose before, even if it was many years ago. You should also inform your surgeon if you have allergies or breathing difficulties; if you are taking medicines, vitamins or recreational drugs; and if you smoke.
Types of anesthesia
Rhinoplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the scope of the procedure and your and your surgeon’s preference.
With local anesthesia, you will usually be slightly sedated and your nose and surrounding area will be numbed; you are awake during surgery, but relaxed and insensitive to pain. With general anesthesia you will sleep during the operation.
The nose job
A nose job usually takes an hour or two, although complicated procedures can take longer. During surgery, the skin of the nose is separated from the supporting framework of bone and cartilage, which is then sculpted into the desired shape. The nature of the sculpting depends on your problem and your surgeon’s preferred technique. Finally, the skin is scraped over the new framework again.
When the surgery is complete, a splint will be applied to help your nose maintain its new shape. Nose packs or soft plastic splints can also be placed in your nostrils to stabilize the septum, which is the partition between the airways.
Reduction Rhinoplasty reduces the size of the nose in height, or width, or both.
Rhinoplasty augmentation adds volume to the nose with cartilage implants or fillers.
Functional rhinoplasty mainly focuses on improving breathing and correcting a possible birth or trauma disorder.
Sometimes only a little refinement is needed to strengthen the nose, which is obtained with Nose Refinement Rhinoplasty.
Procedures help maintain nose ethnicity while reshaping to balance with your face.
For e.g. Cleft lip and cleft palate etc.
Deformation from accident or trauma
Correction of trauma or accident-related nose injury resulting in nose malformation
After your nose surgery
After surgery – especially during the first twenty-four hours – your face will feel swollen, your nose may hurt, and you may have a dull headache. You can control any discomfort with the painkillers prescribed by your surgeon. Plan to stay in bed with your head held high for the first day (except when you go to the bathroom).
You will notice that the swelling and bruising around your eyes initially increase and peak after two or three days. Applying cold compresses will reduce this swelling and make you feel a little better. In any case, you feel a lot better than you look. Most swelling and bruising should go away in about two weeks. (A subtle swelling – unnoticed by anyone but you and your surgeon – will persist for several months.)
Small bleeding is normal during the first days after surgery and you may continue to feel some tightness for several weeks. Your surgeon will likely ask you not to blow your nose for a week or so while the tissues heal.
