Jubilee Hospital Trivandrum.
Rhinoplasty otherwise called nose job is one of the most popular ENT plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes. During the rhinoplasty procedure it\’s possible to reduce the size of the nose, to straighten it or to change the angle between the nose and upper lip. Also to correct an injury or birth defect or to improve breathing problems. Most of these patients have functional problems with deviated nasal septum which also need correction-Septoplasty.
The incisions for reducing or recontouring the external nose are usually made inside the nose or in the columella. The first one is Open technique-External Rhinoplasty- and the second one â€“ closed technique.
If the open technique is used one small incision is made across the columella. It is the cartilage that separates the nostrils. The cartilage is lifted over the nose to allow the cartilage structure of the nose to be seen. It can be seen in its natural state and then the surgeon can make surgical changes to create more aesthetically pleasing nose. There will be 3-4 sutures only across the columella and this scar is so small that it can\’t be seen even in sight. When the closed technique is used the incisions are made inside the nose. Then cartilage is pulled out from the nose and shaped.
It takes about 2 to 3 hours for Rhinoplasty depending upon what has to be done. I prefer to do most major works under GA but minor works under LA.
