Patients can undergo nose surgery either for functional or cosmetic reasons. Septorhinoplasty combines the two reasons, that is, reshape the nose to ensure it cosmetically synchronizes with the rest of the face while meeting the functional obligation of efficient breathing. To meet the functionality, the surgeon corrects a deviated septum due to disease, injury, previous surgery or trauma.
Research shows that over 1 million people on a yearly basis undergo nose surgery and their reasons for doing so are plenty. Our health center is well fitted with the right equipment to perfectly carry out this surgery.
Septorhinoplasty is normally conducted as an out-patient operation. We have topnotch surgeons who safely carry out the procedure for a pleasing outcome. It takes about 2 ½ hours to be through and is done under general anesthesia. It is normal to experience swellings or bruising after the surgery but these do disappear after a given period of time.
The etiologies for nasal deformity are plenty, including hereditary such as large dorsal hump, traumatic experiences like a motor vehicle accident, congenital issues such as cleft palate nasal deformity, and iatrogenic e.g. a past operation gone wrong.
The key issue that is looked at even before any other considerations is whether you are physically healthy or not. Once that is established, your surgeon will assess other factors such as having breathing difficulties or in need of a cosmetically appealing nose.
Age is also an important factor since the teen girls are preferably aged 16 years and above while the teen boys 18 years+. All these will be determined as you undergo a one-on-one consultation with the surgeon.
There are a number of benefits associated with Septorhinoplasty. These include:
• Improved appearance that had been distorted by a crooked nose
• Better breathing by relieving nasal blockages
• Correction of a bent septum which in turn improves shape
• Likely to sleep apnea and snoring
Can realize both cosmetic and functional improvements, hence the customary say hit two birds with a single stone
• Adjust the nose’s shape and balance facial features
Quite a number of patients, and surgeons alike, are normally faced with the daunting task of picking either open or closed rhinoplasty.
