Best Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery in Kolkata

Basics of Rhinoplasty / Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery is a popular plastic surgery procedure. As nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a small improvement can have a tremendous positive impact on a person's appearance. This specialised plastic surgery involves altering the size or shape of the nose, the width and aperture of the nostrils; and the angle between the nose and the upper lip. It can correct  a defect in the nose present from birth, any deformity following an injury; and improve breathing problems.

Types of Rhinoplasty / Nose Surgery

There are three common types of corrective nose plastic surgery:

  • Rhinoplasty - full correction of the external visible portion of the nose, including the bridge, nasal tip and nostrils.
  • Septo Rhinoplasty - correction of the internal septum, in addition to all of above.
  • Tip Rhinoplasty - correction of the nose tip and adjustments of the nostril.

Understanding nose correction surgery properly is vital during consultation. There is no absolute ideal in nose surgery. Ethnicity, skin type and age of the patient are crucial determinants. The goal is to make the nose harmonise with the surrounding face, resulting in overall aesthetic improvement. Sometimes, chin augmentation and other surgeries of the face may have to be combined for achieving a perfect balance and harmony in the face.

During the surgery, cuts are made in the nose mainly from the insides, where they become invisible; and sometimes on the skin separating the nostrils. Bones and cartilages forming the framework of the nose are opened up. Changes to this structure is made, either by adding up on them, or by removing some of their parts. The bones and cartilages are reshaped to form a good new support structure. Skin over the nose are finally draped over this new structure. A splint is applied from outside to protect the nose and allow it to heal for the next week. A good follow-up and proper aftercare ensures a good outcome.

Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping with Fillers & Fat Grafts

Changing Shape of Nose with Fillers and Fat 
Non-surgical nose reshaping is an exciting alternative for people who want refinements in

the nose shape. It is possible with injectables - like fillers containing hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite, and botox. They can correct depressions in the bridge of the nose, bumps and downturned nasal tip. The major benefit of this procedure is that it does not require surgery, hospitalisation or commitment. It can be done quickly within office settings. However, it can not treat all nasal problems, especially the major ones. The results are also not permanent, and fillers have to be repeated at regular intervals. In short, it is not an alternative to a good rhinoplasty. Rather it is a quick fix correction of minor blemishes without surgery and with less time taken off work.

Nose Reconstruction After Cancer or Trauma

Operative Steps in Corrective Nose Surgery
Reconstructing the nose to an almost natural shape is an exciting  challenge for
reconstructive plastic surgeons. Nose is the most important structure for facial identity and appearance. Treatments are usually performed for:
1. Trauma / Injury to the nose.
2. Previous surgery (rhinoplasty).
3. Cancer surgery leading to nasal defect.
4. Congenital (nose deformed from birth).

For reconstructing the nose, we may have to perform surgeries singly, or in multiple stages. The patient's own bone and cartilage can be taken from another part of the body to build up the structural framework of the nose. They are covered with skin and mucous membrane from surrounding areas or from different areas to produce the inner lining and the outer cover. For best results, patience is the key. At the end of it, even a badly deformed nose can be reconstructed to produce an almost natural appearance.

Costs of Rhinoplasty / Nose Surgery

The costs of rhinoplasty / nose surgery includes surgeons' fees; hospital or surgical facility costs; anaesthesia costs; medicine costs & costs of medical tests. Thus, the costs can fluctuate depending on the hospital facility chosen, whether some other surgery like chin augmentation or implants is combined with rhinoplasty and the type of rhinoplasty being performed.  Ultimately, your satisfaction after a well performed rhinoplasty / nose surgery is much more precious than the price paid for rhinoplasty / nose surgery - in fact, it is 'priceless'.
