What is a rhinoplasty Las Vegas?
There are two types:
– functional, an ORL repair surgery, which consists of straightening the nasal septum of people suffering from difficulty breathing.
– corrective, that is to say an operation of plastic surgery of aesthetic order, which consists of modifying the morphology of the nose in the level of the upper bones or the cartilages.
Although having different goals, these two types of nose surgery can be performed at the same time.
This intervention can be requested from the age of 16 when the growth ends. It is also possible to add to this one operation on the chin or on possible bags under the eyes.
Precautions to be taken before surgery
Preoperative medical appointments are essential for cosmetic surgery. In the case of surgery of the nose, these interviews allow the patient to express her expectations accurately and the doctor to propose the possible modifications. This dialogue is paramount.
Indeed, changing the shape of his nose is not trivial and changes the overall harmony of the features: the look, the mouth and even the chin will be emphasized differently. In this, the simulations on photos carried out before the operation are very important. They will help the patient to become familiar with this new face and to decide, in agreement with the doctor, the exact course of the intervention.
How does the intervention work?
Depending on whether it is a reduction of the bone part, a bump or cartilage, the procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia. It lasts between 1h and 1h30.
The hospitalization lasts for 24 to 48 hours.
To correct a bump of the nose too visible, the surgeon will remove the excess bone. The space created by the removal of the bump is tightened in such a way that the nose becomes not only straighter, but also deeper in profile.
If you wish to modify the appearance of your nose on its tip, several techniques will be considered to make it thinner: wing cartilage reduction (which forms the tip of the nose), cartilage suture between them or Although still adding cartilage grafts to reshape the nose according to his wishes.
The duration of convalescence depends on the type of rhinoplasty, it varies between 8 and 15 days.
The nose then remains fragile for a month. It is therefore advisable to avoid any sporting practices at risk.
The procedure often leads to headaches, respiratory discomfort and the appearance of some passing hematomas. In case of persistent pain, an infection may be involved, so it is better to consult immediately.
If the first satisfactory results are visible after 2 weeks, the final result is appreciable only after 6 months or even a year.
The limits of rhinoplasty
– Attention, if the simulations on photos made of profile are often close to the end result, those made face are not always very reliable!
– The grain of skin plays a non-negligible role on the final result: it is not possible to obtain a small and fine nose with thick skin. The same is true with broad nostrils.
