Crooked Nose Surgery
Rhinoplasty – the medical term for nose surgery – is by far the most popular type of cosmetic surgery, probably because the nose is one of the first features that are noticed on a face. There are five different types of nose surgery procedures, which are:
- Ethnic rhinoplasty
- Open rhinoplasty
- Filler rhinoplasty
- Close rhinoplasty
- Revision rhinoplasty
Why Nose Surgery?
There are many different reasons to undergo nose surgery, including those that are for medical reasons rather than cosmetic reasons. Nose surgery can be useful for all ends of the spectrum: from enlarging the nose to making it smaller and from widening the nose to making it narrower. Crooked nose surgery is very common, as many noses are not perfectly straight, causing unsightly humps and bumps.
Ethnic rhinoplasty is a specialisation for many plastic surgeons who specialise in performing crooked nose surgery and other forms of nose surgery specifically on people from a certain ethnicity. Since the gossip stories about Michael Jackson’s nose, surgeons have widely agreed that a nose should continue to fit with the ethnicity of the patient.
Open Rhinoplasty and Closed Rhinoplasty
Open rhinoplasty is performed when more extensive work needs to be done and the entire nose needs to be reshaped. This technique would be used in crooked nose surgery. In this procedure, an incision is made between the two nostrils, after which the skin is lifted and the nose can be reshaped. With closed rhinoplasty, however, only small changes need to be made to the patient’s nose. However, this can still be applicable to crooked nose surgery as it is possible to reshape both bone and cartilage in this procedure.
Filler rhinoplasty is comparable to Botox in as such that a filler is injected into any depressions in the nose. Like Botox, this is a temporary measure and will need to be redone regularly to retain the new appearance.
Revision rhinoplasty is an incredibly expensive procedure that is performed on people who have had previous rhinoplasty and are unhappy with the result. For example, someone may have had crooked nose surgery to straighten out a previous breakage, but finds that their nose simply does not fit their face or is unhappy with it for different reasons. Revision rhinoplasty is able to restore or revise previous cosmetic procedures.
As you can see, crooked nose surgery can be performed in a variety of different ways. The type of surgery that is most applicable to you is something that you would need to discuss with your plastic surgery consultant, who will look at all your needs and requirements and will assess whether crooked nose surgery is for you. The cost of this type of surgery will vary depending on a number of factors, including the experience of the surgeon and the location of the surgery. However, with plastic surgery, higher prices do often mean higher quality, and people are not advised to try and find the cheapest deal when it comes to any form of plastic surgery.
