Rhinoplasty in Iran
Rhinoplasty in Iran: as the central feature of the face, the nose can determine your overall look. Sometimes referred to as a “nose job”, rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is used to improve the appearance and proportion of the nose. While the shape of your nose comes from your genes, its size and appearance may have been altered in an injury or during previous surgery, or you may simply want to make it look more natural. Rhinoplasty may also correct impaired breathing caused by physical abnormalities in the nose.
Rhinoplasty basically consists of three categories as given below:
- Open Rhinoplasty: The major nose reshaping tasks are accomplished under this type of rhinoplasty. In the open technique, the incision is made across the columella, the skin that divides the nostrils. Open rhinoplasty allows the surgeon to get a straightforward view of patient’s nasal anatomy.
- Closed Rhinoplasty: This category involves an incision inside the nose. The skin is separated from the cartilage and bone to get the preferred structural improvement in the nose. Closed rhinoplasty is performed in lesser time compared to the open rhinoplasty. Also, the recovery time is lesser than as in open rhinoplasty.
- Revision Rhinoplasty: Just as the name suggests, this surgery is a repeated surgery which applies to any patient who has previously undergone rhinoplasty one or more times and desires improvement in the appearance and often the function of the nose.
Rhinoplasty in Iran can address several of the most common nose related concerns including:
- Reduction in size
- Reduction in length
- Adjusting nostril size and shape
- Removing or reducing a bridge hump
- Reshaping the nasal tip, that is bulbous, drooping, or too upturned
- Correcting asymmetry and deviation
- Improving or alleviating breathing difficulties
Are you a good candidate for Rhinoplasty in Iran?
You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if;
- You are unhappy with the appearance of your nose
- Trauma or injury has changed the shape of your nose more than 12 months ago
- A congenital defect like cleft lip was corrected at a young age, you are now at least 17 years of age and you would like the nasal deformity corrected
- You are in good physical health
- Your facial growth is complete and you are 17 years of age or older
- You don’t smoke
- You are capable of drawing realistic expectations from the procedure and aware of its limitations
- Avoid medications containing aspirin or ibuprofen for two weeks before surgery.
- If you smoke, stop smoking. Smoking slows the healing process after surgery and may make you more likely to get an infection.
- Refrain from alcohol for 2 weeks prior surgery. Delayed wound healing, persistent skin redness and other complications may persist when alcohol is not discontinued.
- Avoid excess sun exposure two weeks before surgery.
- Do not eat or drink anything, including water, the morning of surgery. Essential medications may be taken with a sip of water.
- Please shower the morning of your procedure, but do not apply deodorant, creams, lotions, powders or oil to your skin.
- Men must shave the morning of surgery.
- Remove all make-up the night before surgery.
Rhinoplasty in Iran: What to Expect
Rhinoplasty can take place in the hospital, outpatient surgery center or our office-based surgical facility. You will begin your rhinoplasty procedure by being administered either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure your comfort.
During the procedure, your surgeon will create small incisions around the nose in order to access the bone and cartilage. After that, he/she will begin reshaping the nose. If rhinoplasty requires cartilage grafts, the surgeon will begin by removing a small segment of cartilage from the ear or a rib. For example, your surgeon may add cartilage in order to change the tip of the nose or use fat grafts to add nasal volume.
Afterward, the surgeon will close the incisions with small stiches and will place a small splint on the nose to support the new structure. In some cases, dressings may be packed inside the nose.
Immediately after the procedure, you should expect visible swelling and bruising which will most likely be reduced after 10 to 14 days. You will need to take at least 10 days off work or school, and take bed rest at least for 7 to 10 days. About 7 days after the procedure, your nasal packing will most likely be removed. After removing it, your sleep patterns and breathing should immediately begin to improve. Most rhinoplasty specialists recommend that you wait up to 1 month before performing strenuous activities. Your nose will be fully healed in one year.
What are the Risks of Rhinoplasty in Iran?
Possible risks with rhinoplasty include infection, bruising, allergic reactions, damage to the nasal structure, and changes in the functionality of your olfactory system. Although these risks are extremely rare, especially with an experienced surgeon, it is still important that you are informed on the possible side effects of surgery. Any concerns you have about rhinoplasty should be discussed directly with the surgeon during your pre-operative consultation.
Best rhinoplasty in Iran, commonly referred as nose surgery, is done for cosmetic as well as functional reasons related to nose. Rhinoplasty is performed for cosmetic reasons when a person is not happy with the shape or structure of his/her nose. The best rhinoplasty in Iran is the one which provides a nose that suits the patient’s face without disturbing the function of nose.
After surgery, following instructions must be given to the patients.
- Eat fibers or fruits to avoid constipation and drink plenty of water.
- Sleep on your back, head elevated 30–40 degrees, for two weeks.
- Open your mouth if you sneeze.
- Brush your teeth lightly to limit movement of your lip or columella.
- Don’t blow your nose.
- Don’t apply any pressure over your head or nose.
- Instead of showers, take baths, when you have bandage over the nose.
- Don’t participate in strenuous activities such as aerobics and jogging for two weeks.
- wear mask to limit the dust exposure, it can cause sneezing or allergic rhinitis
In addition to cosmetic rhinoplasty, there is another important genre of nose surgery known as functional rhinoplasty. In functional rhinoplasty, the goal is altering the anatomy of the nose to relieve nasal obstruction.
Side Effects of Nasal Obstruction
Nasal obstruction can lead to things like:
- Dry mouth
- sleep disturbance
- Reduced sense of smell
- Sinus pressure headaches
- Recurrent sinus infections
- Eustachian tube dysfunction.
These symptoms can result in more serious manifestations of chronic nasal dysfunction including insomnia, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea if left untreated.
What Does Functional Rhinoplasty Fix?
Some of the most common nose problems that can be eliminated by functional rhinoplasty include a deviated septum, an overly large turbinate, and nostrils that are too small. A broken nose may also cause breathing problems, and rhinoplasty can help to improve breathing for someone with a broken nose. Moreover, if you have a long, narrow nose and find it difficult to breathe through your nose regularly, especially after working out, rhinoplasty can help to widen the nose and make breathing a lot easier.
Will Functional Rhinoplasty Affect the Shape of the nose?
Functional rhinoplasty can often alter the shape of the nose. For example, if you are widening your nasal valves, that means you’re essentially widening the width of your nose. That’s why a good nose surgeon usually pairs functional rhinoplasty with a cosmetic rhinoplasty. Functional rhinoplasty is meant to help you prevent of breathing problems, but you should also feel happy about how your nose looks.
It should be said that although any surgical alteration of the nose intended purely for cosmetic enhancement is not eligible for health insurance coverage, a functional rhinoplasty or the functional part of a combined rhinoplasty procedure is often covered by health insurance.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Functional Rhinoplasty?
You might be a good candidate a for functional rhinoplasty if you have suffered any combination of these conditions:
- Nasal congenital defects
- Nasal injury, like a broken nose
- Collapsed airways
- Nasal trauma from repeated infections
- Overly narrow noses
Risks of Functional Rhinoplasty
If you have any of the above mentioned conditions, functional rhinoplasty will improve your breathing. However, like any surgical procedure, it comes with some risks. For example, bleeding and swelling, while they are normal side effects of the operation, may persist longer than expected. In addition, a small percentage of patients experience an infection or complications due to anesthesia. These complications are not very common, but by understanding them, you can set realistic expectations for your treatment and make an informed decision about your health. If you have any concerns, feel free to discuss them with your surgeon.
