Generally, there are two types of Rhinoplasty surgery: open and closed, but there are other types as well. Iranian plastic surgeons utilize all types of Rhinoplasty procedure according to the patient’s need.
Open vs closed Rhinoplasty in Iran
With open Rhinoplasty surgery, the nose is reshaped significantly. The incisions are made in vertical stripes, in the part of the nose that separates the nostrils, called the columella. As the skin and tissues are lifted off the nose, the surgeon will have a better view of the inside and anatomy of the nose.
Closed Rhinoplasty is done mainly for minor reshaping of the nose. In this case, an incision is made inside the nose, and then the skin of the nose is separated from the bone and cartilage. After they are exposed, the bone and cartilage can be removed and even reshaped and often augmented or even rearranged to provide a patient with the nose they desire. A skilled surgeon knows how to minimize visible scars even in open type operations by creating incisions within the contours of the nose.
Secondary Rhinoplasty in Iran (revision Rhinoplasty)
There is no way that two patients will recover at the same rate and at the same speed at the same time. Individuals will react differently to the treatment. Therefore, some patients may require a secondary Rhinoplasty to achieve their goals. Revision Rhinoplasty is also known as secondary Rhinoplasty. This procedure is often performed to correct issues that develop or persist after a Rhinoplasty has already been performed.
According to a survey, about 15% of the individuals who opt for Rhinoplasty surgery tend to opt for revision Rhinoplasty surgery as well. In some cases, the result from the initial surgery may be odd and unnatural to the eye of the patient, or the patient may feel that the new nose has no harmony with the features of the face. On the other hand, some patients want to opt for revision Rhinoplasty in Iran for functional reasons. Maybe the patients feel nasal obstructions after the first Rhinoplasty, or even a collapse of the cartilage. Sometimes scar tissue from earlier surgery is the cause of the problem.
A secondary Rhinoplasty procedure can be performed either openly or closely. To help patients to achieve the best result from revision Rhinoplasty surgery, the following should be kept in mind.
- The patient has to stick with the healthy diet that has been prescribed by the surgeon and drink ample water.
- Smoking is strictly forbidden before as well as after the surgery.
- Aspirin and Motrin should be avoided for about two weeks before surgery.
Reconstructive Rhinoplasty Surgery
Most nose surgeries aim to tackle aesthetic issues, and they can even be ideal for severe cases. Reconstructive Rhinoplasty surgery is known to be a specialist method that focuses on the restoring of the damaged as well as lost issues that have been caused as a result of illness or injury to the patient.
For performing this type of Rhinoplasty, the surgeon recreates the nose with the help of skin grafts collected from different parts of the patient’s body to replace the lost and damaged tissues. Multiple surgeries may be required over the period of months to achieve the result that the patient and the surgeon both desire.
Reduction Rhinoplasty in Iran
As the name suggests, reduction Rhinoplasty in Iran reduces the size of the patient’s nose. It is done to reduce the overall size of the nose or to highlight specific features. Among the features will be narrowing the nostrils or reducing the size of the bumps on the patient’s nose bridge.
In this process, a tiny amount of cartilage or even bone from the nose is removed to restore the nose’s proportions. In reduction Rhinoplasty, the main aim is to reduce the overall size of the nose as the patient desires.
Augmentation Rhinoplasty in Iran
Augmentation Rhinoplasty is performed when the patient’s nasal height is excessively reduced because of a congenital defect, trauma, infection, excessive reduction Rhinoplasty, or submucosal resection. It is done by using autogenous tissues (bone and/or cartilage) or implants to create the nasal tip or even the bridge for the patient.
In some cases, grafting is basically performed using the cartilage taken from other parts of the patient’s body such as the ear or rib. If the cartilage is not sufficient for the process of augmentation Rhinoplasty, then the surgeon will have to look for alternative solutions to fix the nose. Synthetic implants are a great example, and they are also known as alloplastic implants.
Refinement Rhinoplasty in Iran (Tip-plasty)
Refinement Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most popular processes that patients choose due to their nose tips. The tip of the nose can be up or down, round or even pointless. A refinement Rhinoplasty surgery aims to address all these issues in a patient’s nose and fix the problems.
The unique steps involved in the process of refinement Rhinoplasty may vary from patient to patient based on the reason behind their surgery. Fat tissue is often removed from the nose or, if possible, repositioned carefully. Others can have implants inserted to shape the nose tip easily.
The recovery period for refinement Rhinoplasty is not very long. During Rhinoplasty surgery, the inner anatomy of the patient’s nose is drastically altered, and the bones may even break. Hence it increases the time for the patient’s recovery.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty in Iran (liquid Nose job)
In the case of patients who are unable to have surgery or do not want to have it for any reason, sometimes the surgeon may decide to correct some of the defects of the nose without surgery. The surgeon may use an injectable filler instead of removing a bump to make the nose more even and straight on the tip to restore that particular symmetry. Filler Rhinoplasty also known as liquid nose job, is considered a procedure in which fillers are injected into the nose to fill depressions, smooth sharp angles, and modify its angle according to the patient’s requirements.
