Nose correction

For some people, the nose is just a part of their face, harmonizing with the rest of their appearance. However, for many others, the nose is a constant source of inhibitions and complexes. Its appearance can even put the biggest optimist in a bad mood. Often, what may be a beautiful Roman nose for some can be a serious problem for others, which they would like to get rid of at any cost. Cosmetic nose surgery has made incredible progress in recent years, and what was once a painful and often unsatisfactory procedure has transformed into an operation that can shorten the nose, lift its tip, eliminate a hump, or build up a deficiency. All of this is done without visible traces of surgical intervention. The best candidates for cosmetic nose surgery are physically healthy individuals, mentally balanced, and with realistic expectations.

This type of procedure cannot be performed before the completion of skeletal bone development, which occurs around the age of 16-17. The decision about the surgery is best made consciously and independently, after reaching legal age, rather than, for example, on the advice or persuasion of parents.

It is very important to have an understanding between the patient and the surgeon. Before the procedure, there is a consultation during which the doctor pays attention to the need to maintain harmony of facial features, explains what factors can affect the final result (arrangement of nose bones, cartilage, skin thickness, age). The doctor discusses with the patient the shape of the nose after the surgery, as well as the surgical technique, the line of incisions inside or outside the nose, the type of anesthesia, postoperative dressing, and the course of healing after the surgery. The patient receives detailed instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. It is important for the surgeon to be informed beforehand about any other possible surgeries or past nose injuries, as well as tendencies towards allergies, excessive swelling, or prolonged bleeding (difficulty breathing may be a consequence of a deviated nasal septum).

Corrective nose surgeries are among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. If there is a need to clear the nose, they have both aesthetic and functional purposes. Submucosal and subperiosteal preparations are most commonly used. This approach provides a good view of the cartilaginous and bony structures and, very importantly, does not impair blood supply and protects the skin from secondary trophic changes.

The aim of corrective nose surgery is to improve the function and/or appearance of the nose. The most commonly corrected noses are: humped, crooked, slanted, high, droopy, with hypertrophy of the cartilaginous part, saddle-shaped, with a deviated nasal septum, occasionally cleft noses. It is possible to change the shape of the tip, the position of the wings, or the size of the nostrils, or completely change the shape and size of the nose. Depending on the need, incisions are made only in the middle of the nose or additional incisions are made at the base of the columella or the wings of the nose, correcting cartilaginous, bony parts, the septum, nasal turbinates, nasal wings, or combinations of these elements. The procedure lasts from 1 to 2 hours. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia.
