Women - Nose Correction
Nose Correction Surgery, also called Rhinoplasty is a procedure to improve the nose aesthetically in order to create harmony with other facial features. Your nose is a dominant feature on your face and plays an important role in determining your overall appearance.
Some women are unhappy with their nose, either because of its size or shape. Rhinoplasty reshapes the skin as well as the bone and cartilage inside to change the size and shape of the nose.
During open rhinoplasty, Dr Fferrando will create a small, inconspicuous incision at the base of the nose across the columella. This allows him the most access and flexibility in addressing the internal structures of the nose.
During closed rhinoplasty, small incisions are made inside the nostrils, where they are hidden from view. A closed approach may be appropriate for those individuals requiring minimal to moderate changes in nasal structure.
What is the process for deciding the shape of the nose?
The process for a rhinoplasty procedure with leading consultant plastic surgeon Mr. Giovanni Ferrando, starts with the first consultation with the patient. During this consultation, a photo of the patient’s face is taken, especially focusing on the nose.
This consultation is very important, as it allows both Mr. Ferrando and the patient to discuss exactly what result is possible, and what shape and size of nose is perfect for the patient’s face. Mr. Ferrando needs to assess exactly what kind of results the patient can achieve and let the patient know if their goals are realistic and possible.
The techniques used to achieve natural looking results will vary from patient to patient.
In time for the second consultation, a drawing of the face with the new nose will be created to discuss with the patient.
How is a natural-looking nose achieved?
The proportions of the face are taken into consideration in a vertical sense, with the nose taking up one third of the face, with one-third for the forehead, and another third for the lower face.
In a horizontal sense, the width of the nose at the base has to be around the same as the distance between the eyes. When Mr. Ferrando draws the nose, it allows the patient to see how the proportions of the nose will appear after surgery.
There is not one nose shape that fits every face. The nose has to match the face of the patient, and the surgeon has to put the maximum effort to find the right nose for every patient. The best compliment the surgeon can receive at the end of the operation is for the patient to say “the new nose looks so natural, it looks as though I was born with it”.
Your consultation for plastic surgery with Mr Ferrando is an important step in the process of considering and undergoing cosmetic or reconstructive procedures.
This initial meeting allows the patient and surgeon to discuss goals, expectations, and potential outcomes, as well as evaluate the patient’s eligibility for the desired procedure. It will be an opportunity to ask questions or clarify any concerns that you may have. You will look at the “before and after” images of previous patients and get further information you need to make a decision.
Mr Ferrando will review your medical history and conduct a physical exam. He will then discuss all options suitable for you and explain each stage of the procedure or treatment. The exact procedure depends on the anatomy of the patient.
Our team believes that a well-informed, comfortable patient is one of the most important elements of the process. Whether you move forward with surgery or simply learn more, Dr Ferrando is looking forward to meeting you!
Depending on the type of technique, open or closed rhinoplasty, Dr Ferrando will create a small, inconspicuous incision at the base of the nose across the columella. This affords him the most access and flexibility in addressing the internal structures of the nose.
In the case of closed procedure small incisions are made inside the nostrils, where they are hidden from view. A closed approach may be appropriate for those individuals requiring minimal to moderate changes in nasal structure.
Anaesthesia and length of the procedure
Rhinoplasty requires local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia, depending on how complex your surgery is and what your surgeon prefers.
The Rhinoplasty procedure takes between 1-2 hours depending on what type of procedure will be performed. If the issue relates to only the external portion of the nose meaning that the operation is only for aesthetic reasons, then the procedure will take less time to perform.
After rhinoplasty, patients will need a friend or family member to escort them home and assist them for the first 24-48 hours. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness will peak during the first few days and then gradually subside.
Risks and Side Effects
All surgeries carry certain risks and even though they are rare you should be aware of them before making your decision. Mr Ferrando will talk you through any possible risks and side effects at his consultations as they will vary depending on the patient’s body shape, age, physical condition and lifestyle.
How long until the final results are seen?
A rhinoplasty is a very complex operation. The patient can see the final results following a rhinoplasty after approximately one year on average. This depends whether the rhinoplasty is the first time the nose has been operated on, or whether the patient has had another rhinoplasty in the past. If the patient has had one or more rhinoplasties in the past, then the recovery time can be more than one year.
Sometimes different methods have to be used, such as bone grafts from other parts of the body. In these special cases, the recovery time can be longer. If you are interested in having a rhinoplasty procedure, and would like to learn more, you can make an appointment with a specialist here.
