Rhinoplasty : Presentation
The nose is one of the most important elements in the harmony of a face. It is central to the face. A rhinoplasty requires a natural result and a balance with the whole face.
During a cosmetic surgery consultation there must be a real discussion between the surgeon and the patient in order to fully understand what can be done according to the request.
Each face has its own identity, so it is important to be able to define precisely the result that will be most adapted and harmonious to the face.
Many factors condition the attitude to adopt: the skin, the anatomy of the nose, the age, the volumes of the face, the desire of the patient. The surgeon is there to listen, understand, explain and help you choose.
A consultation is necessary before an aesthetic nose surgery operation.
During the consultation, Dr. Diacakis, an aesthetic surgeon in Paris, will give you a consent, an estimate, a prescription of the necessary medication for before and after the operation and a preoperative check-up that the anaesthetist can complete if necessary.
Photographs are always taken before a rhinoplasty. Sometimes a radiological check-up, see CT scan is necessary.
No medication containing aspirin must be taken 15 days before the operation.
It is essential to fast for 6 hours before the operation.
Procedure for rhinoplasty surgery
A rhinoplasty operation usually requires a general anaesthetic and a 24-hour hospital stay.
With Doctor Diacakis, a plastic surgeon in Paris, the incisions are always internal, hidden inside the nostrils. It is only in the case of flattened nose wings, that a reduction of the nostrils may be necessary, the scars will then be hidden in the fold of the nose wing.
A deviation of the nasal septum must always be corrected in the same operation.
After aesthetic rhinoplasty surgery a resin splint will be placed on the nose for 6 to 8 days.
After rhinoplasty surgery
Rhinoplasty is a very painless operation.
Doctor Diacakis, an aesthetic surgeon in Paris, will prescribe you a prescription based on anti-inflammatory, anti-oedematous, and nose washing will be prescribed.
The discomfort is mainly linked to the fact that the nasal mucous membrane will produce more “crusts” during the first three months due to internal scarring.
The resorbable stitches will fall out on their own within 10 days.
Each patient is unique, the after-effects of the operation vary from one patient to another: swelling and bruising of the eyelids last 7 to 15 days.
Sometimes, it is possible to experience some respiratory discomfort in the early stages. This is due to the internal component of the external swelling.
In rare cases, the appearance or accentuation of dark circles is reported, which gradually disappear.
The resin splint will be removed between the 6th and 8th day, the nose will of course still be swollen.
From the 15th day onwards, the signs of the operation are usually no longer visible to those around you.
Sports activities must be stopped or reduced for 4 weeks.
of a rhinoplasty
The result of the rhinoplasty will begin to be discussed with the surgeon from one month onwards (at which time approximately 50% of the oedema will be resorbed, bearing in mind that at 3 months, 80% of the oedema will be resorbed). The final result is between 6 months and a year.
For 4 weeks, sports activities must be stopped or reduced.
