Nose Reshaping Technique And Procedure
A sculpted and lifted tip of the nose can be achieved by internal stitches, sculpting of cartilages and cartilage grafts.
Cartilage Support Grafts:
In the past, cartilage reshaping could be imprecise, leading to misshapen results. Now, by using pieces of your own cartilage to assess and correct internal contour irregularities,
Dr De Silva can create more symmetrical results.
Although many patients are focused on the appearance of the nose, rhinoplasty often makes your nose smaller, breathing is important! Often a combination of straightening your septum (cartilage in the middle of nose) and graft material is required to ensure good breathing.
An Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty:
Your surgeon can now cut through bone with extreme precision. This advanced osteotomy technique is highly successful.
It prevents damage to the surrounding blood vessels and tissue while cutting bone, and it may lead to less swelling and bruising. Not necessary for all patients.
Previously, lower nose cartilage was trimmed to correct bulbous features. Now, we know that the nose must be properly approached with a combination of trimming and specialised suturing. This dual technique creates better proportions and a more uniform appearance.
Healing can be enhanced with the use of anti-inflammatory medicine after surgery, this can be particularly important for revision rhinoplasty, ethnic rhinoplasty and patients with thicker skin.
