Nose Reshaping Surgery AKA Rhinoplasty – Risks, Benefits & Safety

Rhinoplasty is a surgery that would change the shape of the nose miraculously. The motivation for nose reshaping surgery or Rhinoplasty is also to change the looks of the nose, improve respiration or both.

The higher portion of the structure of the nose is a bone, and the lower portion is cartilage. rhinoplasty will change bone, cartilage, skin or all 3 of these. Discuss with your doctor about whether rhinoplasty is suitable for you and what it can do.

When planning a nose reshaping surgery, your doctor will consider your other facial features too, the skin on your nose and what you would like to change. If you are a candidate for surgery, your doctor can develop a customized plan for you.

During the initial consultation, the doctor can inform the patient about the potential risks and side effects that will be related to nose reshaping surgery. The patient should weight the advantages and against the risks and make an objective choice.

In the real world, Rhinoplasty has a number of its benefits. In general tone, most surgeries are done to either improve the look by changing the shape or changing the size of the nose or to alleviate an issue caused by structural injuries or abnormalities.

Specific benefits related to Nose Reshaping surgeries are as follows:

  • Confidence – Increasing confidence is the most wanted motivator for a rhinoplasty.
  • Improve breathing – People with long-term, even congenital respiration problems, are typically astounded at the difference rhinoplasty will make for them.
  • Fix broken nose – Whether from falling, an accident or a fight, the resulting nasal deformity will negatively affect look and performance, as well as induce pain.
  • Sinus issues – Constantly feeling engorged, problem breathing and severe headaches are all associated with sinus problems which might be alleviated through nose surgery.

The decision to have a rhinoplasty is very personal. You need to decide if the advantages will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications of rhinoplasty are acceptable.

Your cosmetic surgeon and/or staff can explain in detail the risks related to surgery. You’ll be asked to sign consent forms to make sure that you totally understand the procedure and any risks or potential complications.

Risks Specific to the Rhinoplasty:

Some of the risks are involved with nose reshaping surgery, which can include:

  • Irregular nasal skin or breakdown of skin from bandaging or from graft materials being exposed through thin skin. This risk is normal & can be recovered in minimum time with proper care.
  • Minor scars at the bottom of the nose in case, an open rhinoplasty technique is applied. This risk can also be covered with proper care.
  • Breathing difficulties during the surgery. Breathing gets normal after a few hours of surgery.

Scarring Risks after Rhinoplasty:

We all know that scarring risks are always there to a varied degree in almost every surgical treatment. However if the surgeon uses any closed technique to perform nose reshaping, the incision can solely be made within the nostrils, and no scars are going to be visible on the surface. However, just in case of open technique, an extra incision will be placed across the columella, which will cause a tiny scar.

Risk of disappointing Results involved with the Nose Reshaping Surgery:

A few patients might feel discontent with their final results that may happen due to a surgical error or incorrect communication between the patient and the surgeon. Typically the patient might have failed to follow the surgeon’s pre- and post-op care instructions appropriately. 

In any case, the patient should have a transparent understanding and realistic expectations so as to better appreciate the ultimate outcome of nose reshaping surgery. The results develop gradually and the complete post-surgical swelling can resolve over several months.

Safety & Precautions to be taken after the Surgery

To avoid the risks concerned with the surgery, and recover quicker, the patient is instructed how to apply pressure massages at the clinic after the splint is removed.

At Prague Medical Institute, you undergo surgery with the best surgeons in entire Europe with whom, you get the best surgery with minimal risks and a completely loaded package including safety measures to take right after the surgery.

Here are some of the safety tips from PMI we suggest to our patients:

For six to eight weeks, the patient must avoid contact sports, sun exposure, extreme temperatures, and sauna. It’s necessary to rest, ideally on the back with the legs and body slightly elevated, till the bandages are removed. Fast movements and bending forward should even be avoided as the increased blood pressure may cause the rupturing of a vessel and bleeding. this may reduce the possibilities of post-operative complications like bleeding, hematomas or swelling, though they may still seem, even in the eyelid space. Ice compressors and prescribed medication help to scale back swelling. The nose should be cleaned carefully and only with soft pads not by just blowing.

The patient should ideally wait for up to a year to allow the ultimate results to take place, and then decide whether any revisionary aesthetic corrections are necessary.

Patients in the UK, Germany, France, and areas around Europe have an opportunity to receive nose reshaping in Prague from Prague Medical Institute.
