Nose tip rhinoplasty involves improving the shape and/or eliminating defects in the tip of the nose. Depending on the anatomical characteristics and the desired result, the operation may require treatment of the cartilage, soft tissues and columella.
Thanks to rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose, you can change:
- The thickness of the area above the tip of the nose
- Protrusion of the tip (the distance it is from the face)
- Tip projection (the angle between the upper lip and the tip of the nose)
- The position of the nasal septum
Nasal tip surgery is much more complicated than it first appears. The surgeon must plan his actions very precisely - otherwise the result can be directly opposite to expectations.
The bony and cartilaginous structure of the tip of the nose has a significant impact on its appearance. Unsuccessful intervention can lead to distortion not only of the shape of the tip, but also of the shape of the entire nose.
How is nose tip rhinoplasty performed?
The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia and lasts from 1 to 2-3 hours. It is difficult to distinguish the typical moments of plastic surgery of the tip of the nose - almost every operation is unique in its own way.
The same tasks that the surgeon faces in different cases will be solved differently - depending on the anatomical structure of the nose, the thickness and shape of the cartilage, the strength of the tissues and other individual characteristics of the patient.
The preparation and recovery process after surgery is not much different from conventional rhinoplasty. It is necessary to quit in advance smoking and a number of drugs that affect blood clotting and healing of sutures, as well as undergo a medical examination to identify possible contraindications.
In the first days after rhinoplasty, swelling, bruising and pain may occur. Recovery after surgery takes about 1-2 weeks, after which it is advisable to protect the nose from physical influences and high blood pressure for another 2-3 weeks (in particular, limit sports),
How much does rhinoplasty cost
The prices for the operation depend on the nature of the changes, the qualifications of the doctor and the prestige of the clinic, as well as a number of other factors.
