A nose operation is a very general term. After my training as "Specialist ENT", as well as orientation "Plastic Surgery" I am specialized in nose surgery with aesthetic background.
However, you can trust that I will also treat and correct medical indications (e.g.: nasal septum) in connection with a nose correction due to many years of experience and qualification.
In nose surgery, not only the shape of the nose is relevant, but above all its function: it breathes, smells, cleans and warms the air. The specialist knowledge in the field of ear, nose and throat is extremely helpful in this procedure.
Objective of the surgery
An individual, natural overall result should be achieved with great empathy. The doctor's experience and sense of beauty play a decisive role.
After careful coordination with your wishes, your type and what is technically feasible, the operation is performed under general anesthesia.
Procedure of the operation
- The incision, which is invisible from the outside, is made on the inside of the nasal entrance. From here, the framework of the nose is depicted and modified in such a way that the desired shape is achieved and no visible scar remains from the outside.
- The wound closure and thus the fixation of the result is carried out with sutures that dissolve themselves later and in individual cases using tissue adhesive.
- A plaster cast is applied from the outside for approximately one week.
- To avoid bleeding, a tamponade is inserted into the nose for a maximum of one night. As a rule, the most modern means allow us to do without it.
- The procedure takes 60 to 90 minutes.
- The stay lasts a few hours or two nights after the operation, depending on the effort involved.
- After one week, the nasal plaster is exchanged for a new one, which you can even remove yourself later in the individual case.
Risk of surgery
Every surgical intervention represents a risk, which I will gladly clarify with you on the basis of your indication. However, these are relative, because careful preparation and adherence to the patient's own rules of conduct after the operation make them appear much less than they did years ago, thanks to state-of-the-art techniques.
