Cosmetic nose surgery can be performed on men and women in all ages.
However, cosmetic nose surgery is not recommended before development is completed around 16-17 years of age. If you think that your nose is not properly proportioned, if your nose is
bridged, if your nose looks too large when viewed from the front, if your nose is crooked or if your nostrils are too wide and large, you are a good candidate for this operation.
The first step before cosmetic nose surgery is to meet with a plastic surgeon. Your doctor will examine your psychological and physical health, and inform you about the operation.
Additionally, you should inform your doctor about the treatments you had, the medication you use, any allergies that hinder your breathing, your frequency of nasal spray use, etc.
Your doctor will investigate your nasal bones, nose shape and size during physical evaluation. Moreover your doctor may recommend other treatments in addition to cosmetic nose
surgery in order to meet your expectations to the fullest.
Cosmetic nose surgery
First step: Anesthesia.
A few medications are administered in order to make you feel more comfortable during cosmetic nose surgery. The operation is carried out under general anesthesia or painkillers. Your
doctor will present the most appropriate option.
Second step: Cutting.
Cosmetic nose surgery may be performed using one of two different methods: open and closed. In closed nose surgery, the incisions are made from within the nose, while in open nose surgeries, the operation is performed through the nose flaps.
Third step: Reshaping the nose.
Fourth step: Fixing crookedness
If there is some crookedness in the nose cartilage or bone, this is fixed.
Fifth step: Closing the surgical operation area.
After shaping the nose bone to preferences, the skin is closed and the incisions are stitched. Incisions may also be made around nostrils to change the dimensions of the nose.
Sixth step: Conclusion
A plaster mask is placed on your nose for your one week period of healing. Swellings will fade in one month, while the shape of your nose will take one year to fully establish. You will also
note these changes on your nose.
