Your Munford nose job may have several components, including correcting your deviated septum, removing the bump on your nose, refining your nasal tip, making your nose less wide with a nasal in-fracture, making your nasal tip profile less prominent, or making the nostrils of your nose flare out less. What kind of pain would you expect from all or some of these procedures?
The most pain you will feel is from any potential bony work, specifically if the bony part of your nose needs to be made more narrow. If your nose job requires your plastic surgeon to break your nose, and then make it more narrow, then this will hurt the most. Even though your nasal bones are very thin, breaking your nasal bones will probably cause bruising under your eyelid areas and around your cheeks, as well as significant pain right after your rhinoplasty surgery.
Cost of Rhinoplasty
When I hear about rhinoplasty, a new face comes to my mind. It is of Bibi Aisha, an afghan girl of 19 years who was just brutally harmed and got her nose chopped off by her cruel husband. She showed an open face of an afghan lady in the cover page of Time, one of the popular magazines across US. Here is where rhinoplasty has its all priority.
Can you imagine a girl with her nose sliced off coming back to life after a couple of months with a new nose flap? Though earlier, it may be a matter of concern now it's never an issue with an easy rhinoplasty. Actually, the word rhinoplasty had its birth from two Greek terms, rhinos mean nose and 'plassein', to shape. It is done as an operative procedure in order to improve nose appearance or enhance or normalize the function of the nose.
It is performed by an otolaryngologist or an ENT surgeon. Nose shaping or nose job is another name of rhinoplasty. Some of the indications of rhinoplasty include birth defects, traumatic injuries affecting nose and nasal septum, cosmetic problems etc. it is also done in adjunct with chin augmentation procedures. Rhinoplasty is usually performed under local or general anesthesia. It is done through two approaches; one is an open approach where an extra incison is placed at columella, a thin membrane splitting two nostrils. Closed approach deals with the rhinoplasty where incisions are made in the nostrils.
Rhinoplasty is of primary and secondary types. Primary rhinoplasty is done as an initial cosmetic or functional procedure. Secondary rhinoplasty, as the name suggests is done secondary to primary rhinoplasty and is very common with almost 5- 20% of cases. There are a lot more new interventions brought in the rhinoplasty. It's very useful in refurbishing the air flow, reforming the normal contour and many more. Congenital problems, nasal obstructions, skin cancer excisions, vascular abnormalities etc are treated successfully with rhinoplasty.
Laser rhinoplasty is also done for simple problems. Non surgical rhinoplasty deals with procedure that does not involve any open penetration but treating by injecting medicines and other line of treatment. Non surgical treatment is usually done in an outpatient setting.
Though less, there are some major complications related to rhinoplasty. One is bleeding or hematoma formation as in the case of any surgical procedure, infections, scar formation or adhesions, whistling and difficulty in breathing due to crusting, polly beak deformity etc.
Nose Job Benefits
There are many reasons that people choose to undergo rhinoplasty. For instance, people consider nose jobs to reshape their nose - whether reducing the size, or adding size to it - and to repair damage caused by trauma. Yet, in general, there are four common types of rhinoplasty: Reduction, augmentation, ethnic and post-traumatic rhinoplasties.
Do you know which type you're considering? You likely have a general idea of what you would like to accomplish with nasal surgery. But understanding the different types will help you weigh your options. Here's a quick look at the four most common types:
1. Reduction Rhinoplasty
The majority of patients seeking rhinoplasty want to decrease the size of their nose, whether the length of the bridge, the size of the tip, or the width of the bridge. Most commonly reduction rhinoplasty addresses bumps on the bridge of the nose, as well as decreasing the width of the nasal bridge. When your goal is to reduce specific areas of the nose, you will first meet with your rhinoplasty surgeon to discuss your options. Then, your surgeon will develop a surgical plan that's designed to meet your expectations.
2. Augmentation Rhinoplasty
Another common reason patients seek a nose job is to increase dimensions of the nose. For example, a patient may opt for this type of procedure to widen the bridge of the nose, or to increase the projection of the tip. Augmentation is usually required when the nose has underdeveloped congenitally, or when injury has caused underdevelopment. Typically, cartilage from the nose can be used to build up the nasal structure, yet sometimes cartilage must be grafted.
3. Ethnic Rhinoplasty
Ethnic rhinoplasty is a term that's widely used to describe a nose job that specific population groups undergo to revise their natural nasal profile. For example, some Far Eastern and Afro-Cuban populations seek a nose job to adjust a softer nasal contour, a wider bridge, or a narrower bridge of the nose, which may be a common genetic trait shared by the population. This requires precision and skill to properly balance the nose to achieve natural-looking facial symmetry, and it's best to find a surgeon with advanced training and specialization in ethnic rhinoplasty.
4. Post-Traumatic Rhinoplasty
The nose is one of the most commonly broken bones, and following an injury to the nose, the resulting damage to the cartilage and bones can alter one's appearance. Rhinoplasty is commonly performed to repair damage caused by traumatic injury. In many cases, a nose job isn't required, as the nose can be set non-surgically up to a week following the injury. Yet, if the nose isn't set quickly enough, surgery is often the only option for reversing the damage. One reason: Bleeding caused by trauma can cause clotting within the nose, which can kill the cartilage. This loss of cartilage can cause deformation - a condition that's sometimes called "boxer nose," which requires surgery to repair.
