Rhinoplasty is the surgical procedure of changing the shape of your nose. There are various types of rhinoplasty including surgical and nonsurgical. When you decide you are ready for your nose surgery, explore your options by discussing them with your physician.
What Is Traditional Nose Surgery?
The traditional surgical rhinoplasty is the best option for a permanent change to the shape of your nose. Reducing the size of your nose is called a nose reduction and increasing the size of your nose is called a nose augmentation.
Do you not like the angle of your nose to your top lip? Do you think that your nostrils are too large or oddly shaped? A surgical procedure can manipulate the cartilage in these areas resulting in beautiful nose surgery (called ศัลยกรรมจมูกสวย in Thai). On average, nose surgery takes anywhere from one to three hours. Because the surgery is invasive, recovery time can take between six to eight weeks.
What Is Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty?
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is the least invasive nose alteration. Physicians inject a filler rather than create incisions. This filler is used to correct small imperfections. If you need a very minimal change to your nose, this may be an option. It is important to keep in mind that this procedure is not permanent because the filler degrades over time.
What Are The Kinds of Traditional Rhinoplasty?
There are four surgical nose surgery options:
- Closed rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of nose surgery. This nose operation does not leave any external scars. Incisions are made inside the nose, allowing access to cartilage and bone. The benefits of closed rhinoplasty include less scarring, shorter operating times, and reduced irritation.
- Open rhinoplasty is a much more invasive surgery. Patients who need large changes to the shape of the nose, contouring, and nose reduction are more likely to need open rhinoplasty. Surgeons will make incisions in the skin between your nostrils to access target areas. After open rhinoplasty, a splint is typically worn for a week. Recovery time is much slower than closed rhinoplasty due to the invasiveness of the procedure.
- Septo rhinoplasty is a surgery used to help improve breathing. Usually, patients have a deviated septum that needs to be altered to clear the breathing passageway.
- Rhino-tip surgery changes the structure of the cartilage in your nose. Surgeons go inside your nose to change the shape of the tip of your nose. As it is less invasive and incisions are made on the inside of the nose, there is generally less scarring.
A new beautiful nose will increase self-esteem, help your breathing, and accomplish the look you have always desired. Consult with your physician to see what option is best for you. Are you a good candidate for closed rhinoplasty or open rhinoplasty? Your surgeon will help determine which surgery will give you your dream results as well as answer all of your questions.
