Types of Rhinoplasties

Rhinoplasty, also known as a reconstructive nose job, is actually a plastic surgery process for reconstructing and re-creating the nasal area. There are basically two types of reconstructive plastic surgery used - cosmetic surgery that alters the size and shape of the nasal area and reconstructive surgery which adds new tissue to the nasal area.

The most common surgery performed on the face and nose is rhinoplasty. It is an outpatient procedure, but should be scheduled in advance, particularly if there is significant swelling, difficulty breathing or difficulty swallowing. As with all reconstructive procedures, there are risks involved, including loss of hearing or sight, deformity and scarring.

Patients may be asked to wear goggles and gloves to reduce discomfort, while they are being operated on. The procedure usually takes less than half an hour. The surgeon will create a new nose using a scalpel, while removing excess skin and creating a hole in the skin at the base of the nasal passage. The surgeon like Dr. Aaron Kosinswill then cut a small incision and reshape the nose in preparation for re-insertion of skin and cartilage. This is a complex procedure requiring multiple surgeries.

Another type of rhinoplasty is the 'super nose' procedure. This procedure is usually performed in conjunction with a facial lift. In this case, a nose tip, known as the 'super nose,' is created to cover up a damaged or enlarged nose tip, while a new nose tip is created. The surgery may last a few hours or up to four hours. After surgery, patients should refrain from using any type of nose piercing and should avoid wearing caps, hats and other accessories.

A 'nose reshaping' procedure involves removing the bridge of a nose and replacing it with an artificial bridge. This is used when one or more bones in the nasal area have moved, causing it to protrude from the nasal cavity. The rhinoplasty newport beach casurgeon creates the new bridge by inserting two or more bones from different locations. This procedure usually takes about an hour or so.

Nasal reconstruction can be performed using a variety of tools including implants, metal rods, metal plates and titanium plates. The most commonly used materials are saline solution and silicone implants. These materials can be used on both adults and children.

A nose bridge is an artificial tooth bridge that is made from cartilage and bone. This is used to cover a gap between the lower jawbone and the upper lip. The surgeon creates the bridge and stitches it at the back of the mouth and in the gums, taking into consideration the natural teeth position.

Rhinoplasty reconstructive surgeries are often used to correct deformities, such as a deviated septum and a deformed nasal septum. A deviated septum is an abnormally shaped hole in the nasal cavity. A deformed nasal septum is the abnormal position of the septum in the nose. This is caused when a section of the nose has shifted forward toward the front of the face, creating an unnatural appearance. For details, visit
