When Should One Undergo Rhinoplasty And What Are Its Risk Factors?

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is surgery that is also commonly known as “nose job.” The doctor reshapes your nose by modifying the cartilage and the bone structure in this treatment. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common and popular types of Cosmetic Surgery in Vizag.

What Are The Common Reasons For Undergoing Rhinoplasty?

Most of the time, people choose to undergo rhinoplasty to repair their broken or damaged nose caused by accident or correct a birth defect or breathing problem. It is also done to change the appearance of the nose and have a satisfying structure.

Some of the possible changes that your Cosmetic Surgeon in Vizag can perform to make your nose according to requirements are:

  • A change in the angle.

  • A change in the size.

  • Reshaping the tip of the nose.

  • Straightening the bridge of the nose.

  • Narrowing the nostrils.

If you are opting for rhinoplasty for the sake of appearance rather than health, then we highly advise waiting for your nasal bone to be fully developed.

Girls who are about the age of 15 or more are likely to be eligible for this procedure. Whereas for boys, it might take longer to fully grow their nasal bone.

But if it is done for health issues like breathing problems, the surgeon would perform rhinoplasty at a younger age.

What Are The Risks Of Rhinoplasty?

Risk is associated with all kinds of surgeries. Some of those risks include bleeding, infection, and a bad reaction to anesthesia. With rhinoplasty, these are some of the dangers that might carry along with the surgery:

  • Having difficulty in breathing.

  • A numb nose

  • Nosebleeds

  • Scars

  • An asymmetrical nose

There are certain cases wherein the patient is not satisfied with their look post-surgery. In such a situation, we suggest you wait till the nose is fully cured, which might take almost a year before choosing for a second surgery.

What Is The Procedure Of Rhinoplasty?

Like the Hair Transplant in Vizag, this surgery could be conducted in a doctor’s office, hospital, or even an outpatient surgical facility. The doctor would give you some local or general anesthesia before proceeding with the treatment. For a simple process, local anesthesia would be sufficient to numb the face.

After you are unconscious or numb, the doctor would make some cuts indie or between your nostril according to the requirement. After they remove the skin from the bone of the cartilage, they would then start the process of reshaping. If you want additional cartilage in your new nose, the surgeon will remove some from deep inside the nose or ear to implant them in the nose. If there is a requirement for more cartilage, the doctor might get a bone graft or implant.

The procedure takes around one to two hours in case of minor surgery. In the case of complex procedures, it might take longer than the stated time.
