Rhinoplasty in Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum, Kerala.
Dr.K.O.Pauose FRCS DLO
Cosmetic Surgery of Nose (Nose job) or Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure especially in the younger age group. Nose being the most projecting and prominent part of our body , it cannot go unnoticed. A pleasing nose in harmony with lips, chin and eyes is considered hallmark of one\’s beauty. An ideal nose is that which suits your face the best and is in harmony with other facial features.
Nose is divided into upper fixed root, middle dorsum or bridge and the lower moveable lobule or the tip region. All these regions of the nose are amiable to change. Thus a nose that is too big, very broad, with hump or prominent bridge, very long, drooping, broad, rounded or heavy tip, short, depressed or crooked, wide and flaring can be corrected and made more pleasing.
Septoplasty- Blocked nose with difficulty in breathing responds well to septum correction surgery called septoplasty which can be done along with Rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty surgery is commonly done here in Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum, in Kerala state, south India. This state because of its paradise like beauty is called Gods Own country. Some of my patients come from abroad as health tourists, having the surgery done and recuperate in resorts nearby and they return home after a week. The cost of Rhinoplasty in this hospital is affordable to most people.
Operative and post operative
Rhinoplasty is done under local or general anesthesia and takes about 1 to 3 hours depending upon the nature of work. The bony and cartilaginous framework is reshaped; sometimes synthetic implants are used to raise the bridge. Tip reshaping is done. Nostril or the ala is reduced if required.
After the surgery there will be light thermoplast splint over the nose for about 7 days. If septoplasty is also done, silastic intra nasal splints are also kept. Nostrils are sometimes packed with Merocel packing for 1-2 days if septum is also corrected. After the surgery the person can go home after about 24 hrs.
All stitches, dressings and splints are off after 7 days and one can resume normal light activities. There are no visible scars or marks over the nose. Although the postoperative swelling may take several months to subside nose looks good after dressings are out and keeps improving thereafter.
A short course of Antibiotic, antinflamatory and analgesics are given for 5-7 days.
I discourage patients coming with unrealistic expectation; some need psychological counseling prior to surgery. However what is desirable may not be attainable at times, especially if a person has unrealistic expectations and the surgeon is not trained enough to proceed. There are no fatal complications and sometimes-small touch up procedures may be required at a later date to improve the results.
