How Is Surgery Performed?
This surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and the patient goes to sleep during the whole procedure. In typical cases, incisions are made inside the nose, so closed operation doesn’t bring any scarring. However, the surgeon needs to go for open surgery in some complicated cases, and it leads to some scars, which disappear after a few weeks of operation. In rhinoplasty, the surgeon separates the skin of the nose from its supporting framework of cartilage and bone, and he starts reshaping this framework depending on the customer’s preference and requirements. Once he is done with changing the framework, the skin is again redraped over it. Once the surgery is complete, the surgeon applied splint on the nose for maintaining its new shape and reducing the swelling. He may also place nasal packs or soft splints (small plaster dressings) in your nostrils for stabilizing the septum, which is a dividing wall between the air passages of the nose.
