What is Rhinoplasty Surgery and Who it is For

Rhinoplasty surgery refers to the procedure that is performed by plastic surgeons to either correct or reconstruct the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery can be necessary in certain situations, where the nose has been damaged due to severe trauma. People can also opt for rhinoplasty procedures for aesthetic purposes, and who wish to alter the shape of their nose, to heighten other facial features. People can opt for rhinoplasty procedures to fix certain genetic defects, or to better the nasal functions. For example, those born with a deviated septum would opt for rhinoplasty procedures, to help them breathe properly. In these situations, it becomes necessary for individuals to undergo rhinoplasty surgery.

This procedure had originated in ancient India, by an ayurvedic surgeon – with proofs from ancient texts and other sources showing that the first procedure was performed in 800 BC. This procedure was originally invented to help rebuild the ears, noses, and other body parts of those who had suffered in wars and battles, or from religious or criminal punishments. This method has been adapted and transformed to the clinical procedure that is performed today.
Before the patient can proceed with the surgery, he/she must be clinically evaluated by the plastic surgeon, to ensure that they are physically and mentally healthy enough to be able to undergo the procedure. The patient must describe the problems and concerns faced with the current nose, and the reasons for undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure. The surgeon will then use computer programs to create a simulation of what the nose will look like once the procedure is done, to ensure that the patient will have an idea of what his or her face will look like once the surgery has been performed. The doctor will also enquire about any previous treatments or procedures that have been done, to ensure that there are no unforeseen complications during the surgery. If the procedure is for cosmetic purposes, then the patient will have to ensure to inform the surgeon of the ideals that they are looking for, so that the surgeon will be able to come up with a working solution that will satisfy the patient. The procedure will include separating the skin around the nose from the soft tissue and cartilage, and then perform the corrections required. Though incisions will be made to make these corrections, these incisions can be made inside the nostril, to ensure that there are no visible scars that are left once the procedure has been done.
