The nose is a central part of our face and has a huge impact on a person’s image as it affects the overall facial harmony. A rhinoplasty can help improve the size, the shape and the form of the nose.
Choosing rhinoplasty can be a big decision and in many times can be daunting undergoing a surgical procedure or having a long recovery period. You want to be assured that you will be under the best and safest hands possible and achieve the best possible and natural-looking results.
At The Private Clinic, we now offer the innovative Preservation Rhinoplasty, a type of rhinoplasty that involves minimal downtime, is less invasive than traditional rhinoplasty and doesn’t leave any scars. In this blog post, we will be covering everything about this new technique.
Traditional rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves making small incisions between the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or in the inside of the nose (open rhinoplasty) to then remove or reduce the dorsal hump. With this technique, once the incisions have been made, the skin proceeds to be separated from the cartilage layers and bone of the nose to then be sculptured to the desired shape.
Traditional rhinoplasty requires patients to wear a splint across the nose for a period of 7-10 days and the downtime is usually 2 weeks, along with swelling and bruising.
During the past few years, there have been major advances in the understanding of the nasal anatomy, aesthetics and surgical techniques. Preservation Rhinoplasty is one of this new advancement in nasal surgical procedures.
Preservation Rhinoplasty is a new technique that allows surgeons not to destroy or reconstruct the dorsum of the nose during surgery. The hump of the nose is carefully reduced internally, allowing the nose to become smaller. The goal of this technique is to preserve the nasal ligaments and manipulate the cartilages requiring minimal incisions.
The main benefits of this new procedure are the fact that is a less invasive and less traumatic technique for the patients, as there is less swelling and bruising involved. With this technique, even though there is a lower chance of requiring a revision rhinoplasty, if needed the revision is far simpler since there is less scar tissue when compared to conventional rhinoplasty techniques.
With the Preservation Rhinoplasty patients can achieve more natural results and as a result of the speedy recovery, patients can get back to their daily routine faster. Patients are able to go home within a few hours after the procedure and recover in the comfort of their home.
Preservation rhinoplasty enables patients to breathe freely as the risk of post-operative bleeding is severely reduced. This is because of the less invasive nature of the procedure compared to traditional techniques.
