What You Should Know Before Getting Rhinoplasty

There is a lot in mainstream media about rhinoplasty. This is the medical term given to any surgical procedure that is done by a cosmetic surgeon to alter how your nose looks. It is one of the most common types of cosmetic procedure because it is easy, has a low recovery time, and because the it is one of the most prominent features of the face anyway. There are always medical reasons for people needing a rhinoplasty procedure performed. For the most part, it is purely for vanity purposes though. A lot of celebrities are doing it and have in the past, which seems to make it acceptable for other people to follow suit as well. While the procedure is one of the most commonly performed, it can go wrong rather quickly if you don’t take the right precautions.
What rhinoplasty does to you
The nose is composed of bones and cartilage. The upper part or the bridge of it is typically bone and the lower part towards the tip is cartilage. A nose job involves the modification of both of these components of the structure of the nose. This can be done with surgical precision to achieve very specific results, such as a narrower or sharper one, that droops less, one that has a tip that is sharper (getting rid of a “button nose”) and removing unsightly bumps on the surface of the bone. Surgery of this form starts off with one or both of two types of incisions, called the extra- and endo-nasal approaches. The Endonasal process starts from the inside of the nose, and the extra nasal procedure starts with a cut on the outside. After this first cut, another is made across the bridge between your nostrils. When the skin is raised, the bones and cartilage are exposed for changes to be made to them.
Is grafting a life or death thing?
Grafts are done during a nose job in Dubai to reduce the chance of there being scarring of the tissue after the surgery is complete. Usually, the cartilage that is needed for the graft is taken from the nasal cartilage taken out of the nose during the procedure. Sometimes when this isn’t enough, tissue is used from the patient’s back or from the backs of their ears to graft the nose.
A problem with this is that there is a small chance of this tissue being absorbed back into the rest of the face instead of being used by the body to fix the nose. This can lead to further complications, which is why some surgeons prefer to use an artificial graft like Medpor that won’t be subject to this type of risk factor.
