What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is the medical term given to what is more commonly referred to as a nose job. Although most people choose to undergo rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, others choose to undergo it for functional reasons. For instance, people who have breathing problems or disfigurements might need functional rhinoplasty surgery while people who are simply unhappy with the size, shape or general appearance of their nose might want to undergo cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery. Because the nose is located in the center of the face, it is arguably one of your most prominent features, so ensuring that it’s appropriately centered and formed can help bring the rest of your facial features into synchronization.
How is rhinoplasty performed?
Because rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure, it does require a bit of sedation. How much sedation you’ll need depends on your specific case and how major the changes you’re making to your nasal area are. While some rhinoplasty procedures only require mild sedation with local anesthesia, most of them require twilight sedation under general anesthesia.
There are two different methods for approaching rhinoplasty surgery. The open approach is by far the one most utilized by cosmetic surgeons. In this approach, the entire skin covering the nose is lifted up to allow the surgeon maximum access to the nose structure. Both Dr. Kim believe that this type of approach is necessary for every patient to achieve maximum results. However, there is also the closed approach that doesn’t require any incisions to be made on the outside of the nose. The closed approach isn’t used as often, and when it is used, it’s only used on straightforward cases. People with severely crooked noses and other major issues will most likely require the open approach.
