The shape of your nose is a result of heredity, like most facial features. Rhinoplasty , usually called a nose job, nose lift or nose surgery, improves the appearance and proportion of your nose. Rhinoplasty surgery can change the nose size, it may be made narrower or straighter, longer or shorter. Nasal tip, that is large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned, nose width, at the bridge, nostrils that are large or wide and nasal assymetry may be altered and improved.
If you are 13 years of age or older, healthy, you have a specific, realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your nose’s appearance, you don’t smoke and your facial growth is complete, then Rhinoplasty is a good option for you. Rhinoplasty Surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or with local anesthesia depending on patient or doctor’s preference. It is very important to choose a surgeon you can trust.
Dr. Marlon Lajo, specializes in Rhinoplasty or nose lift, noselift with silicon implant, goretex, Alar trimming, tip plasty and corrective rhinolpasty.
Some types of rhinolpasty can be performed under local anaesthetic but sedation is also very common. Rhinoplasty should not be carried out if you have suffered from a cold during the last two weeks, since this increase the risk of rhinoplasty complications. Aspirin and similar blood thinning medications should be avoided during the last few weeks prior to your rhinoplasty, since they decrease the bloods?ability to clot and can make surgery more dangerous. Informing your surgeon about all the medications that you are currently using is very important. Your surgeon must also know about any allergies, illness or unusual reactions to previous surgery.
During rhinoplasty, the incisions are often made from the inside rim of the nostrils to make them invisible. During some forms of rhinoplasty, incisions must also be made on the rime of the nose, but such incisions are usually very tiny and will not be noticed once they have healed properly. Sometimes the surgeon needs to add extra material to re-shape the nose of the patient. This material will preferably be taken from the patients?own body and can consist of cartilage as well as bone material. It is also possible to use artificial materials to reshape the nose during rhinoplasty.
