Due to incredible advancements in the medical field, plastic surgery has improved drastically and there are many techniques now available for it. Facial surgery has also seen revolutionary changes. Operations are now available for specific parts of the face. For instance, there are various methods applied for surgery of eyes, nose, treatment of scars and spots, etc. Specifically for nose surgery, a procedure has been developed which is technically named Rhinoplasty. It is defined as a surgical procedure done on a human nose which improves the functioning and appearance of the nose. A huge number of people have been undergoing this surgery in the past few years.
In this operation, an incision is made in the region of skin which separates the nostrils. Following this, the covering skin is gently peeled off and the nose is then ready for reconstruction. Some of the cartilage muscles and bones present are removed or rearranged to obtain a new appearance. It is the choice of the patient as to how they want their nose to look like, after the surgery. The incisions involved in nasal surgery are generally all made inside the nose and there are no cuts visible. After the procedure, the incisions are closed off and the nose is neatly dressed and bandaged. This helps in supporting its new structure and preventing infection. To complete the operation, the nose is covered with paper tape on which the metal splint is kept. This ensures that the shape of the nose is not changed and supports it. The bandaging is generally removed after a week of the surgery.
Risks involved in the surgery
Even though the surgery is performed with total safely and utmost care, there are some major risks involved. For example, excessive bleeding is quite possible and could become an emergency situation. In extreme cases, it is also possible that the patient may have lost any kind of feeling in their teeth or lost the sense of taste. Most of these cases are avoided, still they are a possibility. The most a patient can do is to ensure total rest until the wounds are completely healed.
