Aesthetic nasal correction is one of the most complex surgical procedures. Nose intervention is expressed comprising the reduction of the nose bridge, change the size of the nose, the tip of the nose, the width of the nostril, the angle between the nose and upper lip and nose unevenness. In addition to the aesthetic, surgery can also have a functional character when correcting breathing disorders is most often caused by a distorted nasal bulkhead. It also includes both congenital deformities as well as those resulting from injuries.
We do not propose an intervention before the age of 18 when the facial structure ends its growth.
It should be noted that the input parameters as the size and shape of the nose are limiting because excessive changes can lead to poor aesthetic and ultimately functional results.
General health check and basic laboratory analysis are mandatory for all patients. The surgeon must be familiar with all health problems, breathing difficulties, allergic reactions, previous operations and nasal injuries, taking medication, sports activities, etc. During preoperative preparation, photo documentation should be completed, it is completed with photos during and after surgery, as well as during rewinding.
- Anesthesia: Nasal correction is an operation that is performed in general endotracheal anesthesia. Less restricted interventions can be performed in local anesthesia and intravenous sedation.
- Duration: The duration lasts from one to two hours depending on the complexity of the operation.
After surgery, the patient lies with a mild head and cold coat over the eyes to reduce the expected mild swelling. If the fracture of the nasal bones is performed, the swelling is more pronounced, with a blood streak. Tampons of the nasal hallway are removed first or second day in order to facilitate breathing.
The pains are minimal and are easily controlled by medications. The nose is fastened with patchwork or gypsum mask, which is removed from the fifth to the seventh day after surgery. Threads of the cuts spontaneously fall off and no removal is required. The bloodstreams from the face gradually fade and disappear from three to five days after surgery. Returning to work can be expected after two weeks. In the first month, more intense physical activities and situations in which there is a risk of injuries to the nose should be avoided. The final results are estimated only after a year.
Possible complications in terms of bleeding or infections are very rare. Minor asymmetry and irregularity is possible within the first year. Secondary corrections are recommended only after a year of surgery.
