The Art of Rhinoplasty by APEX
Rhinoplasty, often colloquially referred to as a “nose job,” stands as one of the world’s top five most popular plastic surgery procedures. At APEX, we understand the profound impact altering the nose’s size and shape can have on your overall appearance. When performed by our highly qualified cosmetic surgeons, rhinoplasty isn’t just about changing your nose; it’s about enhancing your entire facial harmony.
Rhinoplasty: More Than Just Cosmetic
Rhinoplasty at APEX isn’t limited to cosmetic concerns alone. While many seek this procedure to enhance their aesthetic appeal, it can also address structural defects causing breathing difficulties. Whether you’re pursuing rhinoplasty for aesthetic perfection or functional relief, we’re here to guide you through the process.
A Choice Tailored to You
Rhinoplasty can be performed as an outpatient or inpatient procedure, with most surgeries lasting between one to three hours. The ideal candidates for rhinoplasty at APEX in Bangkok are those with specific concerns, such as:
- Prominent nasal humps.
- Wide noses.
- Nasal tips in need of refinement.
Two Paths to Nose Transformation
At APEX, we offer two primary types of rhinoplasty procedures:
- Closed Rhinoplasty (Internal Approach Rhinoplasty): In this technique, incisions are discreetly made within the nasal interior, ensuring no visible external scarring.
- Open Rhinoplasty (Open Structure Rhinoplasty): An external incision is made on the columella, the tissue strip separating the nostrils, providing direct access to the nose’s interior. This technique is chosen for specific cases where greater access is required.
What Rhinoplasty Can Achieve
The results of rhinoplasty vary from person to person due to individual factors. At APEX, our goal is to help you achieve the best possible results tailored to your unique desires. Rhinoplasty can achieve several alterations, including:
- Changing the nasal bridge’s size, either increasing or decreasing it.
- Reshaping and resizing the nose.
- Narrowing the nostrils.
- Adjusting the angle between the nose and upper lip.
- Refining the nasal tip.
The surgical techniques employed by our skilled surgeons will be based on the goals you establish during your consultation.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
During the rhinoplasty procedure, our surgeons at APEX carefully work on the cartilage and bone that form your nose’s framework. In some cases, adjustments may be made to reposition certain bones, creating a narrower and straighter appearance. Should your nose require additional structural support, cartilage or bone grafts from areas like the septum or ear can be utilized. The skin and soft tissues are then delicately re-draped over this new framework.
Your Road to Recovery
Recovery after rhinoplasty typically involves the following:
- Bruising and Swelling: Bruising around the eyes and cheeks is most noticeable during the first three days after surgery. However, most discoloration clears within a week. Makeup can be used as a concealer a few days post-surgery. While significant swelling may last several weeks, minor residual swelling, often affecting the nasal tip, may persist for several months.
- Procedure Details: Rhinoplasty at APEX is usually performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, offering a safer and less side-effect-prone alternative to general anesthesia. However, if you prefer to be completely asleep during surgery, general anesthesia can be arranged.
- Incision Types: Rhinoplasty can be done using either a closed procedure, where incisions are concealed within the nose, or an open procedure, with an incision made across the columella. Incisions, when present, are discreet and virtually undetectable upon healing.
- Augmentation and Cartilage Use: Depending on your desired outcome, your surgeon may use cartilage grafts from other parts of your body to reduce or augment nasal structures. Cartilage from the septum is commonly employed, but occasionally, cartilage from the ear or even rib cartilage may be used.
- Splint and Bandaging: After the procedure, a plastic splint is applied to support the newly shaped nose as it heals. This helps maintain the desired outcome.
The Path to Long-Lasting Results
While rhinoplasty results are typically permanent, it’s important to note that cartilage may continue to reshape over time, potentially altering the outcome. Swelling may persist for several months and occasionally up to a year or longer before fully dissipating. However, with APEX’s expert care, you can enjoy lasting results.
