Rhinoplasty, commonly known as nasal surgery, is a cosmetic surgical procedure for improving the appearance and function of the nose, which have been distorted through nasal trauma, congenital defect, respiratory impediment, or a failed craniofacial surgery.
A rhinoplasty procedure should be done on a completely developed nose, usually after the age of 18.
There are two surgical options for rhinoplasty: closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. The surgeon makes incisions inside the nose and separates the nasal skin and the soft tissues from the nasal framework. Then he accesses the bones and cartilage that support the nose. The surgeon rearranges and reshapes the bone and cartilage to create a more functional, aesthetic nose. At the end of the surgery, your doctor may apply a package or a stent to immobilize the nose. A splint can be placed outside the nose to support the new shape. Rhinoplasty requires local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. The surgery takes about 2 hours.
After the surgery you may expect bruising and swelling around your eyes and nose for several days. You should keep the splint dry. You should keep your head elevated when resting and sleep with 2 pillows at least. The splint and bandage will be removed approximately 1 week after surgery. It is recommended to use pain medicine after the surgery.
Blepharoplasty is the surgical operation for correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids; and for aesthetically modifying the eye region of the face. With the excision and the removal, or the repositioning (or both) of excess tissues, such as skin and adipocyte fat, and the reinforcement of the corresponding muscle and tendon tissues, the blepharoplasty procedure resolves functional and cosmetic problems of the periorbita, which is the area from the eyebrow to the upper portion of the cheek.
