Rhinoplasty Dubai | 18 July 2021
Rhinoplasty (also known as nose reshaping or a ‘nose job’) is a surgical procedure to increase or decrease the size of the nose, or to change its shape, whilst maintaining normal breathing and nasal functions. It is often performed for cosmetic reasons, but there are some medical reasons for having the procedure. There are various techniques that Dr. Shahram uses to perform this operation. He will advise which is the most appropriate in your case, and will explain how your nose will appear afterwards.
There are any number of reasons why you might feel dissatisfied with the shape and size of your nose, and you may have spent your whole life feeling self-conscious about it. Do you feel it is too big and bulbous? Are your nostrils too wide? Is it noticeably crooked? Does the tip of your nose point up too much? These kinds of considerations can sometimes have a significant impact on your mental well-being, confidence and self-esteem, and are unlikely to change over time. As such, you may be considering a rhinoplasty as a surgical solution.
Aside from cosmetic reasons, you might consider getting a rhinoplasty dubai:
– To repair your nose after an injury,
– To correct a birth defect,
– To help with certain breathing difficulties.
Some of the common issues patients often want to correct include:
– Altering the length of the nose,
– Altering the width of the nose,
– Altering the angle from the tip of the nose to the top lip,
– Reshaping the tip of the nose,
– Altering the bridge of the nose,
– Altering the shape and size of the nostrils,
– Fixing a broken, crooked, or bent nose due to an injury,
– Addressing a tight nasal passageway, causing breathing difficulties.
Before undergoing any cosmetic surgery, it is important to consider all other options and ensure your decision to have surgery has been sufficiently thought out. For this reason, Dr. Shahram will generally recommend waiting a few weeks between your initial appointment and your surgery, so as to give you ample time to do all the research you need, letting you make the best decision for you.
The nasal bone continues developing and growing through childhood, typically up until the age of 16 years. It is therefore not advisable to operate before this age, unless there are medical reasons to do so, especially as the psychological implications of having rhinoplasty require a significant level of maturity. There is no upper age limit, as long as you are physically fit enough to withstand the demands of surgery.
For surgery to go ahead, you should be in good physical and mental health, ideally undertaking regular exercise and eating a balanced diet, and be at a healthy weight.
Smokers are also advised to stop smoking several weeks beforehand, as smoking can increase the risk of complications and can slow down the rate of recovery from surgery. Nicotine in cigarettes causes your blood vessels to tighten, which means the supply of blood and oxygen to the affected tissues is restricted, preventing your body from healing itself at the expected rate. If you are planning a pregnancy in the near future, Dr. Shahram may suggest postponing any surgery until a later date, as any changes to your body may affect the outcome.
