Rhinoplasty is a medical procedure aimed at restructuring the nose to your desired shape and size. Rhinoplasty Singapore aims at providing you with expert medical surgery and medical care for the various rhinoplasty procedures offered.
Science tells us that our noses are not all perfect. The perfect nose is described to be at 95-105 degrees with the upper lip and 115-135 degrees with the lower forehead. Only a few percentages of people will have this. In addition, our noses may sometimes have various irregularities that we would like to be fixed. Different nasal corrections require different Rhinoplasty Singapore types as explained below.
Types of Rhinoplasty Singapore;
- Nose hump removal
Also referred to as a western nose, nose hump removal is a cosmetic procedure aimed at straightening the bridge of the nose, narrowing the nose, lengthening it and sharpening its tip. Sharpening is done by removing excess bony structures (humps). The end result is a western look like most Hollywood celebrities.
- Traditional Surgical Rhinoplasty
Traditional rhinoplasty procedures entail some degree of invasiveness to remove an underlying nose problem for permanent results. It involves making incisions on the outside or inside of the nose through which the nasal cartilage and bones are reshaped to suit one’s needs, whether they were medical or for appearance.The incisions are then stitched and a nasal splint is used to retain the nasal features until healing takes place.
Though the word seems complicated, septorhinoplasty is simply a combination of septoplasty and rhinoplasty. Septoplasty is done to correct breathing problems while rhinoplasty is done to improve the appearance of the nose. One may have a deviated septum, which is the bony structure in the nose that separates the left and right airways. With this condition, the nose will naturally appear crooked. Septorhinoplasty will sort these two problems in one surgery session.
- Non-surgical nose procedures
For those who may not want any surgical procedure, non-invasive methods such as fillers may be used. This, however, depends on the nature of the problem to be fixed. Fillers are usually fluids such as Restylane, Radiesse and Juvederm, used in most Singapore clinics. Most of these fillers are temporary lasting about a year after which they are re-injected. This is a good option since as you age, your nose muscles tend to loosen up and thus fillers can be appropriately applied.
A well-done rhinoplasty has excellent results but how you take care of the nose after the surgery is very crucial. Some of the precautions recommended by most doctors include;
- a) Don’t blow your nose until it heals completely
- b) Avoid high-intensity exercises such as jogging
- c) Avoid extreme facial expressions such as laughing and smiling during the healing period.
- d) Brush your teeth gently, to avoid stress on the nasal muscles and tissues
The surgery also comes with various risks, some unavoidable but others can be managed with good medical care. They include; constant nose bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, scarring and creation of a hole in the septum.
