Unfortunately, no one can choose their physical characteristics, and for many Asian women, having a shallow bridge is deemed as unattractive, and with rhinoplasty, a more European shape can be achieved. Some people have a slight bump of the profile of the nose, and this can be resolved with rhinoplasty performed by a skilled plastic surgeon who operates in a state-of-the-art clinic.
Open or Closed Rhinoplasty
There are two main forms of rhinoplasty; open, which means making an incision along the thin strip of flesh between the nostrils, and with a skilled plastic surgeon, there would be no visible scarring. While open rhinoplasty is the most popular method, there are times when the surgeon would prefer to make incisions on the inner surfaces of the nostrils, hence the name closed. There are several aspects the surgeon would take into account when deciding on the type of surgery, and during the initial consultation, the surgeon would determine your needs, then he would suggest the best form of treatment, which might include injecting dermal filler under the skin.
Choosing the Right Clinic
Of course, there are numerous clinics that can be found with an online search, and when looking at a particular nose surgery clinic (called คลินิกเสริมจมูก in Thai), and make sure the plastic surgeon is registered with the Medical Council and is authorised to practice. Check out all of the online client reviews, as these are a strong indicator of what to expect, should you decide to proceed.
This would be arranged by the clinic and it enables the client and the surgeon to get to know each other, while the surgeon would determine exactly what you would like to alter, and using before and after images, you can the specialist can come to an agreement regarding the desired outcome. During this time, the surgeon would make you aware of the risks that are associated with all forms of surgery, and providing everything is agreed, the clinic would schedule the operation date.
The clinic would issue you with a list of do’s & don’ts when the date is set, and this enables you to prepare. If you are currently on medication, you might have to stop taking it until after the operation, and you should stop smoking, if you like the occasional cigarette, and abstain from drinking alcohol until a few weeks after the surgery.
