Rhinoplasty

Would you like to change the shape and / or size of your nose?
Well, in most cases it is certainly possible. And I’ll explain it to you shortly. But before that I would like you to know that we are talking about the most common intervention in cosmetic surgery if we consider the male and female population together.

This has a lot to do with the position of the nose. A position so special that it is impossible to hide it, unless you use a mask.However, that is not practical. So, like it or not, your nose is always exposed to the public. There are no alternatives. I can also add that there are various attempts and tricks that aim to obscure it or reduce its visibility: shadows created by hats with long visors, long hair to fall loose on the sides of the face, large and showy glasses to take all the attention, a little unusual poses in pictures and selfies trying to avoid showing the nose profile….

But what is a natural result?

A natural result happens when you can get a nose that in shape and / or size appears to be well balanced and in harmony with the other areas of the face. When you follow these principles you get a nose that you do not notice. The result becomes stigmatizing when these rules are not respected (eg too small nose, too much raised, etc.). In this case, a bad nose job is very well noticed as “strange” or disharmonic compared to the rest of the face.

Therefore, given the sensitivity of the issues involved in this surgery, it is essential that you aspire to rely on those who can boast a broad and demonstrable experience on the subject. Which does not mean certainty of result. But at least substantially reduce possible and very visible alterations that would require the need for revision surgeries later.

Before the consultation

If you have decided to have a consultation, it means that you have been thinking about it for a long time. And maybe even for a long time you’re gathering information, reading here and there, or watching one of the many videos available online. Therefore, what to do now?

What my advise to you is to try to visualize and have an idea as precise as possible
what do not you like about your nose. This, I assure you, would already be a good starting point. In fact it would seem a very obvious thing. But it is not. It is not uncommon to receive patients who would like to change their nose but do not know exactly what they do not like about it. They can not indicate it specifically. The more precise you are in your request, the more easily I can get close to your real expectations. This is an essential requirement for a satisfactory result. Then bring photos of noses that you like, it would help me further define what you want.

This does not mean being able to reproduce exactly that particular nose, be it clear. But at least it helps to have an even clearer idea of ​​why you came to me.

Consultation day

Here you are now in front of me. Getting to this point, usually, means that exposing your nose daily has become a problem now unsustainable. So … congratulations. You have taken an important first step in trying to improve your life and in particular to your ability to relate with others every day.

During this visit, after an examination of the anatomical part in question, I will go into details on what could be an obtainable improvement by suggesting a possible correction. I will show you photos of noses similar to yours that I have operated so as to try to make it clearer what we can aim for. This is a point that I really care about. In fact, having clear ideas about what can be done is essential.

Before the surgery

The long-awaited hour is getting closer and closer. What is missing?

On the morning of the surgery I will ask you to introduce you to the clinic staff and an informed consent must be signed. It is only after completing these that we will do the fundamental preoperative photos.Now you are ready for surgery.

Surgery

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Its duration varies from 45 to 60 minutes. In the case of a rhinoseptoplasty, sometimes it can reach 90-120 minutes. As for the surgical approach, rhinoplasty may involve only internal scars (closed rhinoplasty) or also require a small external scar at the base of the nose (open rhinoplasty). The choice whether to choose one or the other approach is purely technical and purely of my discretion. It is a choice that has a lot to do with what I will have to do during the surgery.

Obviously I will explain the reasons in detail. The typical requests for correction in a rhinoplasty are for a smaller and / or raised tip and for a reduction of the “bridge” of the nose. The absolutely most complicated noses to operate are those already worked previously (rhinoplasty or secondary rhinoplasty, tertiary and enumerating …) or with sequelae of important past traumas. The condition of “mission impossible”, however, falls to the nose with important sequelae from prolonged abuse of cocaine over the years. In these cases,  the supporting structures are sometimes so damaged or missing that any surgical approach can really become impossible.


At the end of the intervention, I will insert packs. In reality they are gauzes impregnated with vaseline that are removed after 12-24 hours at most, without any trauma. The discharge occurs more often in the day (only occasionally the following day), with a stiff plaque/splint on top of the nose.
