nose is one of the most prominent features of the face and can greatly
affect our overall appearance. Many people are self conscious of
the shape of their nose. The nose continues to grow until the age
of 16, and it is therefore, not recommended to operate before this
age. We inherit the characteristics of our nose from our parents,
but injury to the nose may cause nasal deformities or nasal obstruction.
Rhinoplasty reduces the framework of the nose. If the nostrils are
too wide, it may be necessary to narrow them by cutting out a small
piece of skin in the floor of the nostril.
Rhinoplasty will correct the bridge line, the width of the nose
and possibly reshape the nasal tip. This procedure improves the
appearance of a flattened nose by introducing some additional cartilage
operation is performed in a private hospital under a general anaesthetic,
although sometimes local anaesthetic and sedation is adequate. There
will be some numbness and stiffness for several weeks, but patients
are able to resume their normal duties two weeks after the operation.
