How is rhinoplasty surgery performed?

Rhinoplasty is performed in the following 6 steps:

Step 1-Give anesthesia

So the first step begins with providing anesthesia medication for continuing the procedure. Your doctor will advise you on the best choice of medications.

Step 2 – Incision 

Rhinoplasty is either performed in a closed or open procedure. In closed surgery, the incision is hidden, whereas in open surgery, the incision is placed across the columella into tiny strips that can spread out the nostrils.Once the cut is made, the nasal bones and cartilage that are covered by the skin are gently lifted to change the shape of the nose over time.

Step 3 – Reshaping the nose structure 

A large nose will be deducted by removing bones and cartilage. In some cases, nose surgery requires an additional step like cartilage grafting.For septum partition, cartilage grafting is most effective, and cartilage is taken from the ear or any irregular part of rib cartilage.

Step 4 – Creating an ideal deviated septum 

When a septum differs, it straightens and projects inside the nose for better breathing.

Step 5 – Finish incision 

Once the nose is structured according to the desired shape, the nasal skin is covered again and the incision is terminated.

Step 6 – Final results 

Results will be visible after a few days, and you will get a more refined look than before after the rhinoplasty surgery.There can be certain complications after surgery, however, your doctor will recommend aftercare tips and medications to get rid of these risk factors.
