Step 1: Anesthesia
Medications are given for your well-being during the surgical procedure. Among the options available are intravenous sedatives and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best one for you.
Step 2: The Incision
Nose surgery can be done through a closed procedure, in which the incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, in which an incision is made along the columella, which is the narrow strip of tissue. that separates the nostrils.
Step 3: New Shape For The Structure Of The Nose
Nose surgery can reduce or enlarge the nasal structures with the use of cartilage grafted from other parts of the body. Usually, fragments of cartilage from the septum, the division in the middle of the nose, are used for this. Occasionally a piece of cartilage is taken from the ear and, rarely, a section of rib cartilage.
Step 4: Correction Of Deviated Nasal Septum
Nasal septum is straightened at this time and the internal projections of the nose are reduced to improve breathing.
Step 5: Closing The Incision
After the structure of the nose has been made into the desired shape, the skin and nasal tissue are put back in place and the incisions closed. Additional incisions may be made in the natural folds of the nostrils to change their size.
Step 6: View The Results
The nose will probably be supported by splints and internal tubes in the first stage of healing, for about a week. Although the initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it can take up to a year for your new nasal contour to be definitively cleansed. The swelling can come and go and even be worse in the morning for the first year after surgery.
Nose surgery aimed at correcting a blocked nasal passage requires a careful evaluation of the nasal structure due to its relationship to air flow and respiration.
