Reconstructive surgery is performed to restore normal function and appearance and to correct deformities created by congenital disabilities, trauma, or medical conditions, including cancer. Examples include cleft lip and cleft palate repair, breast reconstruction after a lumpectomy or mastectomy for breast cancer, and reconstructive surgery after burn injuries. Reconstructive surgery is generally considered medically necessary and is covered by most health insurance plans.
How is a Rhinoplasty Performed?
Several techniques are used depending on the problem to be corrected, such as lumps in the profile (hump), bulbous or fallen nasal tip, or asymmetry problems. Changes are made internally to the structure of the nose to achieve the desired appearance. Internal changes can also be made to improve its functionality. Three structures determine the shape and functionality of the nose. The upper part consists of bone, the middle part of cartilage (called superior lateral cartilage), and the tip of cartilage (called alar cartilage). The nasal septum is cartilage that divides the nasal area in two and provides support for the distal middle and third parts of the nose. A portion of bone is removed at the top of the nose to correct the hump,
How do I know what my nose will look like after surgery?
There are computer programs where profile and first photos are entered, an approximation of how the patient will look after surgery can be observed. There is also a more artistic way with portraits, but none of them consider how to heal each patient.
How long do the effects of the surgery last?
The benefits of a Rhinoplasty are permanent. And they only go back to surgery for a touch-up if the desired goals were not achieved in the first surgery, although most are pleased after the first surgery.
