Nose surgery

Introduction *

Anesthetic: General
Stay in clinic: 1 day and 1 night
Recuperation: 7 to 14 days
Required pre-surgical tests: All patients undergoing general anesthesia are required to have a preoperative medical evaluation and some routine laboratory tests to assess their general medical condition.

For whom? *

• The nose surgery is recommended to everyone who undergoes psychological and social distress owing to the shape and size of his/her nose. 
• The goal of the nose surgery procedure is to improve the nose aesthetically, change the shape of the tip or bridge, narrow the span of nostrils and make it in proportion with the forehead, chin and the cheekbones etc.
• Age and gender: Unless it is a result of an accident, you are advised to wait until you reach full maturity, usually around sixteen. 
• There is no age limit though, but you need to be aware that as you mature, your skin takes longer to heal.
What is the procedure nose surgery?
• During surgery, the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting framework of bone and cartilage, which is then sculpted to the desired shape. 
• The nature of the sculpting will depend on your problem and your surgeon's preferred technique. Finally, the skin is red raped over the new framework.
• Many plastic surgeons perform rhinoplasty from within the nose, making their incision inside the nostrils. 
• Others prefer an "open" procedure, especially in more complicated cases; they make a small incision across the columella, the vertical strip of tissue separating the nostrils. 
• When the nose surgery is complete, a splint will be applied to help your nose maintain its new shape. Nasal packs or soft plastic splints also may be placed in your nostrils to stabilize the septum, the dividing wall between the air passages


Length of the operation for nose surgery

• A rhinoplasty usually takes an hour or two.

Post operation *

• Retention plaster until the eighth day, then dressing is applied.
• You'll notice that the swelling and bruising around your eyes will increase at first, reaching a peak after two or three days. Applying cold compresses will reduce this swelling and make you feel a bit better
• From the fifteenth day, you will feel comfortable with your nose. 
• Most rhinoplasty patients are up and about within two days, and able to return to school or sedentary work a week or so following surgery.
• Back to work: 1 to 2 weeks. 
• More strenuous activities: 2 to 3 weeks.
