Techniques used in rhinoplasty
Top rhinoplasty techniques
Closed rhinoplasty: Your doctor hides the incisions inside the nose in this technique, making an internal incision between the upper and lower cartilage, which takes less time and a faster recovery period.
Open rhinoplasty: The doctor in this technique performs an external incision through Columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils; this technique is used in cases of apparent deviations and deformities.
The patient undergoing rhinoplasty is completely sedated, then the doctor makes incisions and uses one of the two techniques depending on the condition of the patient undergoing the operation (closed nose technique – open nose technique) after which the phase of nasal remodeling begins.
Nose remodeling phase
This is the main stage in rhinoplasty, where the doctor reshapes the bones and cartilage of the nose according to the shape agreed with the patient before the operation, in some cases implanting cartilage may be required.
Correcting the shape of the nasal septal
Your doctor closes the incisions and then installs the nasal splint, after which the final stage of rhinoplasty begins: recovery and waiting for the results of the operation.
After rhinoplasty and recovery
at this phase the patient undergoing rhinoplasty must follow the doctor’s advice and instructions in order to get the required results, the most important of which are:
Take medications and antibiotics prescribed regularly by your doctor to avoid any infection.
Make cold water compresses on the eye and nose to reduce swelling.
Avoid violent activities until the wound is fully healed.
Eat too much fiber-rich foods such as vegetables and fruits.
Keep your head up, for a few weeks after the operation.
