Different Types of Rhinoplasty SurgeryOctober 3, 2018
A nose reshaping plastic surgery, commonly known as a nose job, is a choice for many patients who seek to modify the shape and size of their nose to make it more proportional with other facial features.
There are various types of nose surgery procedures aimed to deliver different results.
The surgeon will discuss the best rhinoplasty options for the patient during the initial consultation. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Reduction rhinoplasty is designed to decrease the overall nose size. If the patient chooses a reduction nose job, it can help them reduce the overall nose size or offer a reduction in specific areas that need to become smaller such as the nasal tip, or a nasal hump or bump among other areas.
In this process, the surgeon resizes the nose by excising cartilage and/or bone from the nose to attain the desired size or shape.
In an augmentation rhinoplasty, the surgeon grafts bone or tissue to develop the nasal bridge and/or tip. In a majority of cases, the surgeon sources the cartilage from other nasal areas, typically the nasal septum. But if the patient has insufficient tissue in this region, the augmentation surgeon may use various grafting materials that are available to enhance the nose.
This type of rhinoplasty surgery addresses nasal injuries that can cause compromised airways. The damage to the nose typically occurs due to sports injuries, fights, falls, or motor accidents. The procedure may involve extensive repair of the bone, cartilage and tissue, depending on the severity of trauma.
After surgery as a part of skin cancer treatment or sometimes due to trauma to the face, the nasal structure may become significantly disfigured because of the lack of tissue that has been excised or lost.
Reconstructive nose surgery is a procedure to restore tissue that has been seriously damaged or is not available in the nose. This surgery employs grafts and flaps from various regions of the body to recreate the absent component tissues.
Tip Refinement Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty involving tip refinement employs multiple tactics to chisel the nasal tip to make it appear more attractive and harmonious with other facial features. The surgeon may add or eliminate cartilage and tissue to perfect the shape or direction of the nasal tip.
In ethnic rhinoplasty, the surgeon modifies the nose shape to develop a symmetrical and cosmetically appealing nose that is in harmony with the patient’s face without adversely impacting the ethnic attributes of the facial structure.
This surgery can restore both the form and function of a nose that has undergone surgery in the past. Some people find it hard to breathe after a previous nose job or are unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of their nose due to a previous rhinoplasty. This procedure can help correct problems arising from previous nose surgery.
Other Types Of Nasal Surgery
This surgery helps in treating a deviated nasal septum. The septum refers to a wall comprising cartilage and bone that bifurcates the nose into two separate nostrils.
This procedure reduces the size of turbinates. These are structures that exist on the side wall of the nose and may get swollen leading to an obstruction in breathing.
