Different Types Of Rhinoplasty

The medical procedure that is undertaken to correct the breathing problems of a patient or to improve the appearance of a patient’s nose if referred to as a Rhinoplasty. There have been different rhinoplasty procedures developed over the years by different cosmetic surgeons to be able to meet the needs and expectations of their patients. There are four different types of nose surgery procedures. These include:


Here, there will be an incision of the small strip of the skin between the nostrils that is known as the columella. This makes it possible for the surgeon to lift the skin from the tip of the nose and, therefore, be able to precisely shape the bone and cartilage of your nose. This is so because the surgeon can see the inner structures more clearly. The underside of the nose will remain with an unnoticeable scar when it finally heals. However,, if you have a darker complexion or a thicker olive skin, then you are prone to scarring.


This is a procedure that involves intravenous sedation under local or general anesthesia. An incision is made by the surgeon inside the nostril rim and as a result they will be invisible after the healing of the patient. When the surgeon is correcting a breathing problem, he or she separates the soft nostril form the structure underlying it. This then gives them the ability to reshape the bone and the cartilage. When the size of the nose is being reduced, the bones of the nose will be fractured carefully towards the end of the procedure. Cartilages form the nose, rib or ears can be used to build grafts in a cases where the nose needs to be built up. The surgeon may also opt to use other implants such as cartilage crafts that are obtained from a tissue bank.

Non -surgical rhinoplasty

This is a procedure that benefits patients who have the need to improve their nose appearances instantly without undergoing a surgery. The healing is faster with less pain. The cost is also cheaper because the patient will only pay only 10% of the price of a rhinoplasty surgery. This will involve substances like Botox being injected to change the appearance of the nose. The patients need not to worry about having a big nose because the injection normally evens out in the nose.

Natural Rhinoplasty

Cosmetic surgeons are normally tasked with the job of trying to come up with noses that look natural and stay in shape for a long time. Presently, rhinoplasty procedures involve rearranging the structures of the nose and not only getting rid of them. The tissues of the nose are preserved as much as possible. Grafts will be used only when they are necessary to help in opening up breathing.
