Rhinoplasty Surgery: 

Rhinoplasty or Nose Job, is a surgical procedure usually performed by a plastic surgeon to improve the function or appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty can be performed for aesthetic or reconstructive purposes to correct trauma, birth defects, or breathing problems. Rhinoplasty can be combined with other procedures such as chin augmentation to improve cosmetic results.

In, reconstructive nose surgery was developed by Sushruta, a leading Ayurvedic physician of ancient India who is often considered the "father of plastic surgery". Sushruta first described nasal reconstruction around 500 BC. in his text Sushruta Samhita. He and his later students and followers resorted to rhinoplasty to reconstruct his nose, which had been amputated as punishment for crimes.

Surgical access: open or closed

Rhinoplasty can be performed under general, sedation, or local anesthesia. First, a local anesthetic, a mixture of lidocaine and epinephrine, is injected to numb the area and temporarily reduce blood supply. There are two possible approaches to the nose: the closed approach and the open approach. In closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nostrils. An open rhinoplasty, also known as a brow lift, involves making another discreet incision through the columella (the piece of skin that separates the nostrils). The surgeon first separates the skin and soft tissue of the nose from the underlying structures. Cartilage and bone are remodeled and the incisions closed. Some surgeons use a stent or sealant on the inside of the nose, and then tape or a stent on the outside.

In some cases, the surgeon may graft a small piece of cartilage or bone from the patient to strengthen or reshape the nose. Usually, the cartilage is pulled out of the septum. If there is insufficient cartilage in the septum, as may be the case with a revision rhinoplasty, cartilage can be harvested from the pinna or ribs. In the rare cases where a bone is needed, it is taken from the skull, hip, or ribs. Sometimes a synthetic implant can be used to enlarge the bridge of the nose.

Open skin incision for rhinoplasty. The incision may be in the shape of a "V" or a "step". This will help achieve a precise closure and hide the resulting scar.

Rhinoplasty incisions are hidden inside the nose except for a small incision at the base of the nose.

Rhinoplasty to correct a stuffy nose after unreasonable cosmetic surgery is common. Rhinoplasty Effects: Reconstructive rhinoplasty after unreasonable plastic surgery can restore normal breathing. If the nasal cartilages are cut too much during a rhinoplasty, the nose may appear pinched and the power of the nose may be reduced. Patients complain of nasal congestion, which is aggravated by attempts to inhale deeply. Internal cartilage grafts to support the tip of the nose (rod grafts) or to widen the medial roof of the nose (dilator grafts) can be very successful in restoring normal breathing. These transplant techniques increase the tip of the nose and widen the bridge of the nose.
