RHINOPLASTY AND RHINOSEPTOPLASTY
Rhinoplasty surgery enables the profile and structure of the entire nose to be reshaped by shortening it, removing the dorsal hump or modifying the tip. Not just a cosmetic surgery, rhinoplasty can also treat a number of breathing issues, as well as correct congenital or acquired deformities and those resulting from trauma. The goal of this surgery is to correct defects and achieve the most natural-looking results. In order to create balanced and attractive proportions, the nose is considered in relation to the entire face. The surgery usually takes place under general anaesthesia. There are two methods of rhinoplasty: one uses the closed technique (incisions are made inside the nostrils so there are no visible external scars) and one that uses the open technique (an additional incision is made into the columella, the cartilage and soft tissue that separates the two nostrils). I tend to opt for the closed technique in primary rhinoplasty (first procedures).
