Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery to correct and reconstruct the nose. There are two types of plastic surgery used:
The steps in rhinoplasty surgery are shown in the following stages:
The rhinoplasty procedure must be done under anesthesia, as the anesthetic medications gives more comfort during the surgery. Options include intravenous or general anesthesia. The doctor will advise you of the best option for you.
When rhinoplasty is performed, two techniques can be used, the closed technique and the open technique. In the close technique, the surgical incisions are made inside the nose, whereas in the open technique, an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.
The skin covering the nose bones and cartilage is gently lifted, allowing access to the nose structures to where rhinoplasty is done.
A very large nose may be reduced by removing bones or cartilage.
Aesthetic nose surgery may sometimes require the addition of a cartilage patch, to perform this cartilage from the nasal septum is most often used. Nasal septum is the cartilage and bone in the middle of the nasal cavity.

Sometimes cartilage from the ears is used, and cartilage of the ribs is still an option but is rarely used.
If the nasal septum is deviated, the surgeon straightens it, and reduces the protrusion inside the nasal passages to improve breathing.
Once the primary structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, the skin and nasal tissues are repositioned, and the surgical incisions are closed.
Additional incisions can be made in the skin wrinkles of the nostrils to change their size.
For a few days, splints and gauze packing may be needed to support the nose as it begins to heal.
It depends on how much changes are made to the nose.
Minor changes usually take from an hour to an hour and a half.
But if many changes are made, the operating time can extend up to 3 to 4 hours.

You may experience a slight swelling of your nose, which you and your surgeon may notice.
But it will subside over the next six months. The final shape of your nose will be clear after complete recovery.
Tiring activities should be avoided for 3 to 6 weeks after surgery.
It is possible to return to practicing social activities within 2-3 weeks, without any signs that you have had a plastic nose surgery.
For many patients, swelling of the nose subsides totally after 6 to 8 months, but often you need to complete the 12-month period, so that your nose has completely recovered from the inside and outside, and final results appear.
