Rhinoplasty is categorized on OnlineMedicalTourism.com as within the class of procedures known as Cosmetic. This procedure is sometimes also referred to as Nose Job..
(click for worldwide facilities list): Rhinoplasty is a nose-reshaping cosmetic plastic surgery that can correct deformities or make subtle aesthetic changes for cosmetic purposes.
A rhinoplasty can change many things about your nose, including your nose size (in relation to your face), nose width at the bridge, the size and position of the nostrils, and nose profile (by downsizing visible humps, bumps or depressions on the bridge).
A rhinoplasty can also reshape the nasal tip, improve the appearance of large, wide or upturned nostrils and correct nasal asymmetry. From a functional standpoint, a rhinoplasty can correct certain breathing difficulties such as those due to a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty is also an option for certain birth defects or noses that have been injured in car or sports accidents.
Primary rhinoplasty is a nose-reshaping plastic surgery. Two types of primary rhinoplasty include open and closed:
Open Rhinoplasty. For major nose reshaping, the incisions are made in the vertical strip of skin separating the nostrils. This is called the columella. The skin and soft tissue are then elevated off the underlying structures of the nose so the surgeon can see the nasal anatomy.
Closed Rhinoplasty. For minor reshaping, many surgeons make incisions within the nose. The skin of the nose is then separated from the bone and cartilage, which form its supporting framework. Once exposed, bone and cartilage can be removed, reshaped, augmented or rearranged to achieve the desired new shape.
Secondary Rhinoplasty. Also called revision rhinoplasty, this is performed to correct problems that persist or develop after a previous rhinoplasty. Although the problems may be minor and easily corrected, often the problems are major, which makes the secondary rhinoplasty more difficult. Secondary rhinoplasty can also be done as an open or closed procedure.
Filler Rhinoplasty. This involves the use of injectable fillers to fill depressions, smooth out sharp angles or change the angle of the tip of the nose, restoring symmetry and making your nose appear smaller and more attractive. Instead of removing a bump, a surgeon would use an injectable filler to even it out. The results are not permanent.
Complete results are not immediate and can take up to one year to be fully evident. You should wait at least one year before undergoing revision rhinoplasty.
Insurance does not typically cover the cost of cosmetic procedures, but if the purpose of your rhinoplasty is to improve breathing, it is considered reconstructive and may be covered by insurance.
