There are two prerequisites for nose surgery: for medical reasons or for cosmetic reasons.
This type of rhinoplasty as a correction of the size and shape of the nostrils is performed only for aesthetic reasons.
Continuing the lateral surfaces of the nose, from below, the wings limit the external openings of the nostrils.
Correcting only the shape of the nostrils can sometimes perfectly improve the appearance of the entire nose.
Reasons for correcting the shape and size of the nostrils
Surgical indications can be:
- wings of the nose too long;
- wide wings;
- nostrils of different sizes;
- narrow wings of the nose;
- thick nostrils;
- large wings of the nose;
- wings of the nose that sink in.
Perform surgery for plastic surgery on the wings of the nose
The method of performing the operation to correct the wings of the nose depends on the individual characteristics of the person. The surgeon will select the option that is best for you.
- Reduction of the wings of the nose - the plastic surgeon makes small incisions on the sides, removes excess tissue and sutures the edges. Scars are invisible and disappear quickly.
- Narrowing of the nostrils - the area of the columella (between the nostrils) is sutured, thereby narrowing the width of the wings of the nose.
- Retraction of the nostrils - for this operation it is necessary to transplant tissue from the nasal septum or atrium.
Basically, plastic surgery on the wings of the nose is done in conjunction with general rhinoplasty. During the initial consultation, the plastic surgeon will assess the proposed intervention in terms of scope.
Contraindications to surgery
Patients must be 18 years of age or older.
For various diseases:
- diseases of internal organs;
- viral infections;
- oncological diseases;
- blood clotting problems (and other blood diseases).
In addition, plastic surgery of the wings of the nose is contraindicated in patients with mental illness, somatic diseases in the stage of decompensation or exacerbation.
Rehabilitation after plastic surgery of the nostrils
At the end of the operation, the doctor inserts tampons into the nose and applies a fixing plaster bandage. After that, the patient may very well go home, but if he wishes and the doctor's recommendation remains in the hospital. A week later, the cosmetic stitches are removed, followed by a specialist consultation.
The scar from the operation disappears after 1-2 months. Patients are advised not to expose themselves to the sun for a long time, to avoid physical activity and to refuse the sauna (bath) for a month.
Correction of the wings of the nose without surgery
In some clinics, in the presence of minor defects, correction is possible without surgical manipulations. Changing the shape and size of the nostrils occurs with the use of fillers. The composition of the fillers is completely harmless to the human body. The advantage of this method is instant results and no rehabilitation period. In addition, after the procedure, no scar or scar remains with the fillers.
The advantage of non-surgical correction of the nostrils is the absence of a rehabilitation period and the absence of a rehabilitation period. In addition, after the procedure, no scar or scar remains with the fillers.
Non-surgical nasal remodeling is performed under local anesthesia.
For most people, the imperfections associated with the shape and size of the wings of the nose do not interfere with life, but there are those who do their best to correct nature's mistakes. In the modern world, people, who strive to bring their appearance closer to perfection, will always find flaws. So there is cosmetic surgery. Rhinoplasty will help correct various defects of the wings of the nose and the nose in general.
