Rhinoplasty in Ancient India
The roots of ancient Indian surgery go back to more than 4000 years ago. Sushruta, one of the earliest surgeons of recorded history (600 B.C.) is believed to be the first individual to describe Rhinoplasty. I am privileged and considered blessed to be born in the land where Sushrutha lived.
Rhinoplasty otherwise called nose job in India is getting very popular, the changing lifestyles and affluent middle class want to have more cosmetic procedures of the face especially the nose. The demand for cosmetic procedures such as rhinoplasty in India is on the rise and more and more young individuals come seeking for rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure that reshapes the nose in order to get a better appearance and function. A bulky nose can be made smaller and a small nose can be made bigger. The tip of the nose can be molded to the desired shape that is necessary by sculpting the cartilages and re draping the skin.
Types of Rhinoplasty
The first one is the open technique and the second one the closed technique. In open type a small incision made across the Columella. The skin envelope over the Cartilage framework of the nose is lifted to allow the cartilage structure of the nose to be seen. The framework can be seen in its natural state and then the surgeon can make surgical changes to create a more aesthetically pleasing nose.. When the closed technique is used the incisions are made inside the nose. Then cartilage is pulled out from the nose and shaped.
Septoplasty is usually performed along with Rhinoplasty. Following trauma to the nose there can be distortion of the nasal bones and the nasal septum. This may lead to difficulty in breathing and also give rise to a deviated nose (crooked nose). This can be corrected by means of a septorhinoplasty where in the deviated septum is corrected by removing the abnormal parts of the septum and osteotomies of the nasal bone to correct the bony deviation. The removed parts of the septum can be recycled and made use of to correct the contour deformities of the nose.
Who can do better Rhinoplasty
An ENT surgeon with experience in Cosmetic surgery is the person whom one should go to. Certain types of gross deformity where extensive reconstructive procedures like raising distant skin flap, may be a plastic surgeon can do a better job.
