The goal of rhinoplasty is to have a good size, a good height, a good tip and a nasal dorsum.That the nose has stability of all its anatomy and that it has functionality: that is, it can breathe the same.
Rhinoplasty can be of 2 types : augmentation or reduction.
During the consultation, your Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon César Fernández will analyze your nose, see how it is projected, the length, the tip and the nasal dorsum. Based on a well performed cephalometric analysis, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon César Fernández will tell you what you need and the parts of the nose that you should correct. Always keep in mind what are the parts of the nose that most uncomfortable to patients.
In patients who have unrealistic expectations, they should be explained that certain characteristics are not amenable to correction.
The results depend a lot on the patient’s own anatomy, sometimes the patient does not have much substrate to work with.
If as deviations from the nasal septum, spurs and any other anomaly.
The septum is released and reinserted in the correct position improving breathing. This allows to align the nose.
In the second consultation, the surgeon will inform the patient of how the nose surgery will be carried out, what is the best way to do it and the result that will be obtained. In addition, you must pay the cost of the surgery to be able to program it in the surgical band.
Closed rhinoplasty does not leave a scar. But open rhinoplasty allows to visualize all the structures of the nose completely.
Open rhinoplasty leaves a scar on the columella.
Closed rhinoplasty leaves an internal scar in the nostril.
The nose surgery usually lasts between 1 and 2 hours , although in complex cases or surgical reinterventions, second or third surgeries may take more time.
During rhinoplasty, the skin of the nose separates from its bone and cartilage. Cartilage grafts of the nasal septum or atrial concha may be used to reinforce the nose. Then the shape is given to the nasal tip with special points. Finally the wound is closed with stitches.
The surgery can be performed open , making an incision on the columella. Or closed rhinoplasty by making an incision in the inner edge of the nostril. The incisions of the mucous membranes suture with absorbable points, that is, they disappear on their own. The skin incisions are closed with nonabsorbable points, that is to say that they must be removed after 5 or 7 days.
Nasal packing with gauze impregnated with antibiotics with oily substances may be necessary.Only in this way is it possible to reduce the recovery time and avoid possible infections.
All patients always leave an external nasal splint designed with plastics or plaster. Then the splint is immobilized with micropore or bandits.

You do not have to worry All patients who undergo nose surgery go through the same process. After 4 weeks the swelling and bruising will disappear.
