What is the Nose Reshaping?
A rhinoplasty or remodeling of the nose causes a change in the shape of the cartilage or bone. This type of plastic surgery is very common and is chosen by many people. People are choosing to reshape their nose to correct a birth defect or injury later in life. Sometimes this is also done to breathe hard. Some people who are not very happy with the appearance of their nose are also undergoing a nose reshaping to improve the appearance of their nose and face. The changes that the surgeon makes to your nose will change either the size or the angle or the tip of the nose. Other modifications include reducing the space between the nostrils and aligning the bridge of the nose.
There are some age guidelines that people must follow before deciding to reshape their nose. If this operation is practiced to treat respiratory problems, it can be practiced at any age. However, if done only for superficial purposes, adolescent growth should wait until the nasal bone has reached full growth. For girls, the age limit is 15 years, for boys over the years.
How is Nose Reshaping Done?
Before you start treatment, you should sit down for an initial consultation with your doctor to determine if you need a nasal modification. The doctor will conduct a thorough review of your medical history. He will ask you questions about your current state of health or about the medicines you are currently taking or not.
If you are diagnosed with hemophilia or hemophilia, surgery is not recommended because hemophilia is a genetic condition that prevents the formation of blood clots and causes severe bleeding and bruising.
The doctor then performs a complete physical examination, examining the nasal skin from the inside and outside. Your nose will also be photographed from all angles to judge your case in the future and as a reference for the duration of the surgery. This helps him decide which changes to make. You will be asked to perform certain laboratory or blood tests.
Patients are advised to stop smoking for at least one month prior to the operation because cigarettes slow down the healing process, reduce blood vessels, and impede oxygenation. In addition, you will be asked not to take aspirin or ibuprofen for at least two weeks prior to the planned surgery, as these drugs significantly slow the blood clotting process.
