Rhinoplasty

The term “Rhinoplasty” comes from ancient Greek and is the union of two words: “rhinos”-“nose” + “plastikos” – “changing shape”.

A nose is an elevated visible part of a face and its ideal form is related to ethnic origin, esthetic proportions of face, skin type and age. Its form and shape determines individual characteristics of your face esthetic proportions and if you are not happy with this fact – you are not alone.  Every year thousands of people chooses rhinoplasty in the world in order to gain their confidence by changing the shape of the nose and /or improve nasal breathing.

 

When the nose surgery aims harmonization of middle face esthetic lines with face proportions, it is called aesthetic rhinoplasty and breathing recovery- Septoplasty.

 

In case of functional insufficiency reunification of these two aims into one intervention became a necessary procedure in modern plastic surgery and is called the aesthetic functional rhinoplasty.  Upper age limit of aesthetic rhinoplasty is unlimited. Bottom age limit ranges with respect to gender and preferably no less than 14 years old in case of girls.

Normally, open rhinoplasty requires approximately 2-3 hours. Medical intervention ends by putting protective fixator.
