The nose at the centre of the face and of observation is a distinctive feature of human beings.
Particularly large, long, crooked, pointed or tubercular noses may make life difficult for the affected individual and aesthetic/cosmetic surgery can lend nature a hand here.
It is not only the form of the nose which is important here but above all its function:
It breathes, smiles, cleans and warms the air.
With great empathy, an individual natural overall result is achieved with the experience and aesthetic sense of the doctor playing a decisive role.
After careful adjustment to your wishes, your type and technical feasibility, the rhinoplasty operation is carried out under general anaesthetic.
The incision which is invisible from the outside is made on the inner side of the nasal vestibule. From here, the framework of the nose is delineated and changed in such a way as to achieve the desired form.
The closing of the wound and with it, the fixing of the result, is achieved with stitches, which subsequently dissolve, with the use of tissue glue in individual cases.
An external plaster cast is applied for approximately a week, with a tamponade inserted into the nose for at most one night in order to avoid bleeding. The most modern means devices allow us to avoid this to an ever greater degree.
The operation lasts from 60 to 90 minutes, with an inpatient stay of two nights after the operation. After one week, the nose plaster is changed for a new one which you may later remove yourself.
Ideally, you should rest for two weeks after the operation and sleep on your back with a slightly raised torso. Avoid sport for four weeks and direct exposure to sunlight for the following four months. You will be socially presentable after two to three weeks.
