Aesthetic problems such as the nose being too big, too wide, asymmetrical, crooked, too long, or too short, or as the nares being too large.
- Medical problems such as asymmetric septum or sinus-related problems.
When you feel your nose is too big, hooked, asymmetrical or snub, or when you sense that it draws attention of other people, this might be the best moment to schedule a consultation and finally solve the problem.
Surgical corrections of the nose are performed for aesthetic or medical indications. Depending on the expected effects, the surgery is performed within the bone part (in the case of crooked or aquiline nose) or in the cartilage part (when the nose is too broad, asymmetrical, or when its tip is too short or too long).
In some cases, nose may not only disturb the overall harmony of the face, but its function may be limited as well. Such problems are usually associated with asymmetrical nasal septum or paranasal sinuses. During the consultation and following all the required examinations, our specialists make every effort so that the selected procedures lead to a maximum improvement of patient’s comfort.
One should keep in mind that aesthetic correction of the nose may be performed simultaneously with functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), i.e. widening of sinus openings, as well as with the correction of asymmetrical septum and other disorders.
In order for the nose to look natural and meet the customer’s expectations, the procedure should be appropriately planned with consideration being paid to all biological features of the face such as the elevation of cheekbones, jawline, and overall nose dimensions.
Anesthesia and the course of the surgery
Nasal correction may be performed under local or general anesthesia and lasts 90 to 120 minutes depending on the extent. The procedure requires one-day hospitalization. During the procedure, nasal skin is detached from the osteochondral support, and then the nose is remodeled to the desired shape.
After completion of the procedure, thermoplastic fixation dressing is placed on the nose. Small dressings (seton drains) are placed within the nostrils to prevent bleeding. Depending on whether the surgery involved the nasal septum or not, seton drains are removed on the first or on the second day after the surgery. If stitches are placed in natural skin folds, they are removed after several days. The fixation dressing is usually removed after 7-14 days.
Most incisions are located inside the nose. The only external incision is located at the nasal column. It usually heals very well and is finally invisible. When nasal correction requires narrowing of anterior nares, incisions are hidden at the site where the wings meet the cheeks.
Swelling or bruising may be present over the first few days after the procedure, usually resolving after 10-14 days. Final follow-up visit is scheduled 6 months after the surgery; however, 12 months are required for the full effect to become visible.
