Nose Reshaping and Reduction
Nose reshaping and nose reduction surgeries are among the most preferred aesthetic operations by patients with an arched nose structure. The aim of the operation, as in all rhinoplasty surgeries, is to obtain an attractive nose structure. During nose reshaping, the plastic surgeon uses special tools. The procedure is designed not to cause severe swelling and bruising on the patients’ faces or eyes. During nose reshaping excess bone or cartilage tissue that forms an arch in the nasal bone is gently corrected, resulting in a straighter and more balanced nasal profile.
What are the Advantages of the Surgery?
Nose reshaping has a number of advantages. First of all, thanks to this procedure, it is possible to achieve a flatter and more aesthetic appearance from an arched or too protruding nasal structure. This helps patients to restore balance to their face and increase their self-confidence. However, this surgery is not only aesthetically beneficial. Nose reshaping surgeries also relieve breathing problems. Patients who have difficulty breathing due to anatomical problems inside the nose start to breathe more easily thanks to this operation.
The most important advantage of the surgery compared to complicated rhinoplasty is that the healing process is much easier and more comfortable. Patients usually experience minimal swelling and bruising in the postoperative period. In this way, they return to their social life faster. And this is a very sensitive issue for patients. Of course, the results of the operation are permanent and provide long-term patient satisfaction. In short, nose trimming surgeries offer an effective solution that combines the aesthetic and functional expectations of patients.
How Is the Surgery Performed?
The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia according to the doctor’s decision. However, general anesthesia is mostly preferred. As we mentioned above, nose reduction/trimming is not a very complicated procedure. Therefore, the duration of surgery does not exceed 1-2 hours.
During the nose reshaping surgery, the surgeon follows the following steps in order:
In the first step of the surgery, he carefully examines the patient’s nasal structure. As a result of preoperative evaluations and these examinations; determines where the arch in the nasal structure is and how much it needs to be corrected. S/he makes the surgical incisions either through the nose or through the natural folds outside the nose. Thus, stitch marks appear minimal.
Excess bone or cartilage on the nasal bone is gently corrected or removed according to the surgeon’s expertise. The nasal skin and soft tissues are then reshaped to fit the corrected nasal structure. At the end of the operation, a bandage is placed over the nose and thin tubes are inserted into the nose. This supports the healing process.
Who Is Suitable for Nose Reduction Surgery?
Many people can benefit from the nose reduction procedure. The operation is suitable for both patients who are aesthetically uncomfortable due to nasal arch and patients with respiratory problems.
Remember that nose reduction is a surgical procedure. The patient’s general health status is taken into consideration to determine whether or not they are suitable for the operation. For most surgical procedures, individuals with chronic diseases and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not considered suitable candidates. However, some cases may be exceptions. If you are in such a situation, we recommend that you consult a specialist surgeon. This is the only way to get precise information.
Will I Experience Pain during Recovery?
In the nasal arch trimming procedure, the surgeon directly intervene in the nasal bone. Although this is not a difficult procedure, it is possible that you may experience some pain during the healing process. But let us clarify that this is by no means a very severe pain. On the contrary, rhinoplasty is known for being one of the least painful aesthetic operations. The painkillers prescribed by the doctor are sufficient for the patients to spend the healing process in the most comfortable way.
