Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used
to modify the size and shape
of the nose in order to give
it a more pleasant look. Harmonize
your nose and show off a really
proportionate face. Learn here
how our medical team will make
you reach your lifelong dream
of a beautiful profile.
does Rhinoplasty do?
corrects unaesthetic characteristics in
noses that are too long or too big, bulbous,
with a hump or with a 'hanging' tip. It
narrows the nostrils, if they are too wide.
It corrects deformities such as those acquired
as a result of accidents. It helps correct
certain breathing problems. It can give
the nose a more masculine or feminine look,
according to the standards of proportion
and harmony prescribed for each sex.
What does Rhinoplasty NOT do?
cannot reproduce an exact copy of the nose
of someone famous. Remember that there is
no such thing as two noses that look exactly
the same, that each face has its own proportions,
volumes, angles and outlines, and that the
same nose that looks beautiful on one face
may look odd if it were reproduced exactly
on your own. Even though it will make your
face look more beautiful and harmonious,
and it will probably also improve your self-esteem,
it will not be enough to make you look perfect.
We must be realistic and accept the fact that, that
kind of perfection does not exist.
is Rhinoplasty performed?
through the nostrils, without the need of
making any exterior incisions, the surgeon
reaches the cartilage and bone located under
the skin, he may rasp or trim them with
special instruments to give the nose the
desired shape and size. In more complex
cases, where deeper modifications are needed,
it may be necessary to perform a little
cut across the columella (the tissue that
divides the nostrils) to access the bone.
The shape and width of the nostrils may
also be modified. This is done by means
of two incisions at the base of the nose
wings, these incisions become imperceptible
soon after the surgery.
Local anesthesia and complementary sedation,
or general anesthesia.
One or two hours.
There is no need to be hospitalized, it
is done on an outpatient basis.
must be taken into account that it is not
possible to make any definite judgments
about the results of a Rhinoplasty before
6 or 8 months. We may say that in these
cases patience is a virtue that is rewarded
with a harmonious and proportionate nose
that completely changes the overall appearance
of the face in a very favorable way. Patients
who have been able to achieve an adequate
understanding with their surgeons have obtained
very positive results, and today they are
happy and satisfied with the changes.
