Plastic surgery has come as a boon to all those who want a better contour. Plastic surgeries are of various types and rhinoplasty is one of them. When plastic surgery is meant to change the contours of the nose it is termed as rhinoplasty. However, rhinoplasty is not only a cosmetic procedure but it also helps to minimize the problems of breathing that are usually accompanied with nose deformities.
What can Rhinoplasty Treat?
Rhinoplasty can treat many problems and some of them are listed below:
- With the help of rhinoplasty, you can restore your facial balance by adjusting the size of your nose.
- Some people are born with depressions or bumps on their nose bridge. These lead to an unpleasant appearance. Rhinoplasty can help you to fix that.
- You can also adjust the width of your nose bridge with the help of rhinoplasty and can also adjust the nostril positions.
- Some people have a deformed nose tip. So, if you want a perfect nose tip, you can get that too by undergoing rhinoplasty and correcting a drooping, bulbous, hooked or upturned nose tip.
- If you are troubled by your large nostrils, you can correct them too with the help of rhinoplasty.
- Another very important problem that rhinoplasty can treat is a deviated septum which can lead to breathing problems.
What are the Types of Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery?
Rhinoplasty can be broadly classified into two categories and both of them are explained in detail below.
- Closed Rhinoplasty - The closed rhinoplasty is also known by the name of endonasal rhinoplasty. As is suggested by the name, in this process the surgical incisions lie inside the nostrils instead of being put outside. Since all the incisions are inside, there will be no possibility for the formation of a scar in this process. Not even a portion of any incision is visible from the outside. But the left and right nostril incisions are not connected to each other. This means that there lies a difficulty of nasal skin reposition and the surgical operation can be conducted only through small and narrow incisions that allow only a small amount of visibility. There are plenty of technical limitations and considerable challenges that are associated with a closed rhinoplasty.
- Open Rhinoplasty – The open rhinoplasty is also known by the name of external rhinoplasty. The first and foremost difference between the open and closed rhinoplasty is that unlike the closed process, there is a connection or bridging incision between the left and right nostrils which is called the trans-columellar incision. Because of the presence of this bridging incision, the nasal skin can be easily folded thus allowing a clear visibility of the underlying nasal skeleton. Moreover, there are no chances of the nasal cartilage being distorted in this process. With these challenges removed, you can get a perfect result with the help of an open rhinoplasty.
So, if you are not happy with how your nose looks, just go for rhinoplasty/ Nose Surgery and get the right proportions.
