The nose is such a central feature of the face that it has a decisive impact on the entire appearance. When it is not proportionate or presents quite an unattractive shape, it can even significantly alter a pleasant expression.
There is a solution
Cosmetic rhinoplasty allows to correct disproportionate noses that lack harmony, thus endowing the entire face with grace and beauty, also making the most of areas, such as eyes, chin and mouth, that were previously ‘shadowed’ by a ‘cumbersome’ nose.
Rhinoplasty corrects the shape of the nose by reducing and remodelling both cartilage and skeletal bone. It can be performed either only for cosmetic purposes or to correct any deviation of the nasal septum (thus improving respiration).
Generally this surgical procedure does not leave scars because the incisions are made especially inside the nostril (closed rhinoplasty). If it is also necessary to intervene on facial skin (open rhinoplasty), small cuts are performed in strategic areas to be practically invisible.
Generally carried out under total anaesthesia, rhinoplasty requires the skin to be mobilised from the underlying skeleton, after performing the incisions inside the nose (in the vestibular region). Then any dorsal hump that might be present is removed and the cartilage is isolated (alar, septal and triangular) and reduced to the measure required to remodel the tip. When surgery is combined with correction of nasal septum deviation, the incisions already performed are used for rhinoplasty. At the end of surgery, the site is medicated with tampons (in both nostrils) and a plaster cast is applied on the dorsal region of the nose to immobilise the bones.
