Rhinoplasty Dubai | 20 June 2022
The complexity of the nose, together with it being one of the most prominent elements of our face, means that rhinoplasty is an extremely delicate procedure. There is totally no space for any errors when it comes to rhinoplasty.
Unfortunately, inexperienced rhinoplasty surgeons do not consider certain aspects of the nose during the procedure, which can cause significant difficulties for later patients. Revision rhinoplasty is a viable option for patients who are dissatisfied with the initial rhinoplasty and is often used to correct previous unsatisfactory attempts.
A well-performing and professional rhinoplasty always consists of three main components: the actual procedure goes according to plan, the nose looks natural after surgery, and there are no obstructions within the nasal structure. The latter two can be largely avoided if the first element is met – doing it correctly.
Conversely, a poorly performing rhinoplasty can have some problems. Here is a short list of signs every rhinoplasty patient should be aware of:
– breathing issues
– Misshapen nose shape
– Bulge at the bridge
– The nose is excessively wide
– Irregular shaped nostrils
If you have any of the above signs after your first rhinoplasty, and you are not satisfied with the results, then you may opt for a re-rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is for sure one, if not, the most difficult procedures in cosmetic (cosmetic) plastic surgery for a number of reasons.
The nose itself is a highly complex structure, evident in the center of the face. Professional rhinoplasty requires simultaneous correction of deformities of the nose while maintaining or even improving nasal function. Without optimizing the function of the nasal airway, it is impossible to make the nose look good.
Patients can be left dissatisfied with their previous surgery and may not realise that further rhinoplasty procedures may not be successful in fully correcting aesthetic deformities that were either uncorrected in the previous surgery or that occurred as a result of the surgery. Scar tissue is often a problem in revision cases and can limit results as it can reappear even after successful rhinoplasty surgery. Additionally, revision rhinoplasty often requires the use of cartilage to replace damaged and/or defective cartilage that was removed in a previous procedure.
The nasal septum may be deviated, which requires correction to improve the appearance and function of the nose. Nasal congestion may also be caused by collapse of the apical cartilage, causing the outer valve to collapse. Deviations of the nasal septum, as well as defects in the upper lateral cartilage, are common in revision cases, causing the internal valve to collapse, requiring the use of a cartilage graft, called an “expansion graft or sometimes a self-expanding flap,” to open up this narrowed area.
