Cosmetic Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) Procedure:
Cosmetic nose job is done either through closed or open method by cutting columella. Cartilage is harvested from rib cartilage where an incision is made on chest and scar mark is seen whereas artificial implant is an alternative of rib cartilage and donor site scar mark is absent but infection chance is more. Stitches are mostly done with absorbable sutures. Aesthetic nose surgeries are performed under general anesthesia so patient needs nursing home stay after operation and discharged with postoperative directions and nasal moulding. Nose eventually swells up after surgery, and final judgment can be given after few months when swelling subsides.
Complications of Rhinoplasty include bleeding, local infection, nasal deformity, airway obstruction and donor site morbidity.
