What is Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Rhinoplasty is the most common and complicated type of all plastic surgery on the nose (nose reshaping), changing the shape, size of the nose or improving its operation (breathing) or both, bringing it into a better relationship with the rest of the face (facial balance). It is additionally done to mend nasal fissures that the aim is to recover pre-trauma emergence of the nose.

Rhinoplasty (nose job) can be done for two reasons:

Medical reasons: 

To correct breathing problems linked to the nose or proper disfigurement affecting injury or birth defects.
The most common medical reason for rhinoplasty is the difficulty of breathing through the nose. The nasal problem can create complications with exercise, bother sleep, tend to snore.

Cosmetic reasons: 

Cosmetic rhinoplasty is concentrated on the part of the nose you can clearly see. In this surgery, clients are discomforted with the form of their noses. They can use rhinoplasty to reform their nose, cover hump or bump, improve a pressed or disfigurement nasal apex, and reform the basis or connection of the nose or both.
The most popular demand are lessening the nasal hump, the apex or correcting imbalanced, In this part; most people often complain about having a hump; they concern about the bridge or the tip of their nose, which will change the shape and appearance of the nose, boost facial balance and self-confidence. The aim of cosmetic rhinoplasty is to better the emergence of the nose by reforming the figure.

Functional rhinoplasty:

Functional rhinoplasty is a medically essential method that is operated to improve breathing trouble and sinus effects. “The most common reason a patient seeks a functional rhinoplasty is to improve breathing,” Dr. Friedman says.
Some people have problems with their breathing, not their nose’s shape. In this case, functional rhinoplasty is offered that refers to a kind of surgery that improves the function of the nose without affecting its appearance. The aim of functional rhinoplasty is the development of reconstruction of the figure of the damaged nose.
Cosmetic and functional nasal methods are commonly linked and have related improvements.
There are two kinds of rhinoplasty: open rhinoplasty closed rhinoplasty. The difference between these two is the location of the slits through which surgery is completed.
In open rhinoplasty, a slit is generally made in a vertical strip of the nose, inducing the peel to be divided to the nasal structure beneath.
In disparity, closed rhinoplasty is usually completed through the nostrils using tiny slits placed on the inside of the nose -ending in no outside disfiguring. Every pattern has an individual advantage.

As far as been observed, this operation is not very painful. However, some patients may feel itchy and tender, which also depends on the type of surgery and may be due to the pressure escaping the airway or sinus during the surgery. However, your surgeon can give you the best advice to reduce pain; you can also consult with your doctor to use pain-relieving pills. Rather than pain, most of the patients report that discomfort is a bigger issue than pain after the surgery. Meanwhile, some complain about aches they feel due to that congestion and sinus pressure . Generally, the pain reduces after few days (36 to 72 hour) but it can remain if the nose is severely touched or manipulated. However, nose sensitivity to touch and swellings can last as long as months after the surgery (up to 3 months).

Some patients might leave the hospital the same day they have had nose surgery. For the first days it is recommended to keep your head elevated and for the swellings to be reduced you can apply ice packs.

Although Some nonsurgical alternatives as Contouring and makeup and also dermal fillers are offered on some websites you should keep in mind that the structure of the nose is formed by your bone where attaches to your face and the tip of that is formed by soft cartilage which creates flexibility so all these alternatives are temporary and not permanent.

The operation takes less than 15 minutes and results may last up to 6 months.
