The nose is made up of bone tissue at the base of the nose and of cartilage end. Both of them can be surgical corrected, although the surgery requiring osteotomy (bone surgery) is relevant more difficult, always require general anesthesia, and the patient enters an extended period of recovery.
The corrections rhinoplasty include the cosmetic reshaping of the nose, e.g. a defective tip of the nose, too narrow, pug nose , parrot beak etc.
The surgery is usually preceded by three consultations with the plastic surgeon. The doctor has to understand the patient’s expectations and motivations and know his (mental) health as well.
During the first consultation the doctor additionally makes some facial pictures and eventually send the patient for additional medical examinations.
The next consultation includes detailed analyze of the results of the medical examinations, which may disqualify from the rhinoplasty.
During the third consultation, shortly before the surgery, the patient meets the anesthesiologist to clarify the details of the treatment and anesthesia. In case of less extensive surgery and rhinoplasty of the cartilage nasal pyramid it is possible to perform the surgery in a local anaesthetic.
The internal part has to support the septum and shorten the healing time of nasal mucosa.
The external part prevents movements of the anatomical structures after the treatment, ensures the right adhesion of the skin to the nasal bridge and prevents of hematoma and edema.
