Rhinoplasty 101 – All you Need to Know

The ‘nose job’ is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery, especially among Asian women who wish to improve the bridge of the nose, giving the nose more prominence. As with most things, cosmetic plastic surgery has indeed come a long way, and there are two main forms of rhinoplasty; open and closed.

Open Rhinoplasty

The incisions are made on the thin strip of tissue between the nostrils, and this method is preferred for major changes, and with bone augmentation and dermal fillers, the contour of the nose can be altered. The open nose surgery (known as เสริมจมูกแบบเปิด in Thai) usually takes less than one hour, and there may be some swelling, which will quickly subside, and you should follow the surgeon’s post op instructions.

Closed Rhinoplasty

This method is used when minor changes are required and it involves making incisions inside the nostrils, which allows the surgeon access to bone, cartilage and tissue, and the agreed changes can be made. The first step when looking to have rhinoplasty is to have a consultation with the plastic surgeon, who would understand the desired results you are seeking, and your reasons for wanting the surgery. Then the surgeon can make a recommendation, and should you be in agreement, a surgery date can be fixed. It is important that you fully understand the risks that are involved with any form of surgery, which the specialist would make clear, plus the surgeon would explain how they are going to achieve the desired result.

Filler Rhinoplasty

Sometimes, the desired effect can be achieved by injecting special dermal fillers into the nasal tissue, and when you see the plastic surgeon, he or she might recommend dermal filler treatment, which is non-invasive and long-lasting. When browsing clinic websites, it is important to know that the Medical Council does not allow before and after images to be published, but when you have your face to face consultation, the surgeon will be able to show you many images that demonstrate what can be achieved.

If you would like to have the shape of your nose altered, the first thing to do is search online for a reputable plastic surgery clinic, and you can make an introductory appointment with the plastic surgeon. Once the specialist knows what you are looking for, they can then suggest the best form of treatment and explain how they would achieve the desired result.

Today’s rhinoplasty is non-invasive and very affordable, and many women are enjoying a boost in self-confidence thanks to rhinoplasty, which is carried out by a very experienced plastic surgeon.
