If you have been wanting Rhinoplasty Surgery in Delhi

In a world obsessed with external beauty, one is often left envying those who are naturally gifted with striking features. We have always been told that good looks are a gift by nature, and man has no control over her/his looks; makeup being the only help we can use. And of everything that matters to us when it comes to good looks, the shape and size of the nose plays a very significant role in defining the overall appearance of the face. But no amount of cosmetics can ever change its basic structure.

A fat or crooked nose will remain as it is, subjecting you to a lifetime of hating your nose and hence your appearance, whenever you look into the mirror. The only solution comes in the form of surgery; i.e. correction of the shape using a surgical technique called Rhinoplasty or more commonly known as a ‘nose job’.

Since nose forms the centerpiece, it is very important for the overall aesthetic appeal of your face. Your sharp features may be ruined because of a broad or blunt nose; a round, bulbous nose, might make your face look fat; or a tilted (deviated) nose might lead to difficulty in breathing. Similarly, a thick, broad, bulbous or drooping tip might not be of your liking too. Rhinoplasty rectifies all these shortcomings and gives you a whole new altered and desirable look.

Rhinoplasty Surgery in Delhi

What is Rhinoplasty?

It is a cosmetic surgery conducted on the nose to reshape or resize the nose, and also to correct the breathing problems. This procedure helps to make the nose appear better, and improves any functional disorders. It is a safe method to alter the nose size in relation to the rest of the face. It also can change the width of the nose bridge and reduces the appearance of humps or depressions on nose. Other corrections that can be done through this procedure are the position of the nasal tip, the size of the nostrils, and the symmetry of both nostrils.

What is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

RG Aesthetics has added a new tool to its armamentarium…PIEZOTOME to perform more precise rhinoplasties, and correct issues caused by traditional rhinoplasty tools. In traditional rhinoplasty, surgical instruments known as rasps and osteotomes are used to reshape the nasal bones by removing the hump and/or narrowing the nasal bone width. These tools are relatively imprecise and their use can lead to contour irregularities, etc. if not used in the proper manner. Piezotome allows surgeons to make precise bone cuts andcorrect minor irregularities and asymmetry, and major deformities without damaging the underlying structures.

History

In rhinoplasty surgery, management of the bony vault and lateral walls is most often performed with mechanical instruments: saws, chisels, osteotomes, and rasps.Over the years, these instruments have been refined to minimize damage to the surrounding soft tissues and to maximize precision. Power-assisted rasps, burrs, and saws were designed, however, there were limitations such as the expense, increased operative time, risk of soft tissue injury, more extensive exposure, and difficulty performing lateral osteotomies. Recently, a technology that uses sound waves has been developed to contour nasal bones in a precise and far less traumatic way when compared to traditional techniques. Ultrasonic, or Piezo, rhinoplasty is now the most advanced technique available for minimally traumatic nasal bone reshaping and hump removal during rhinoplasty.

The first application of piezoelectric instrument in rhinoplasty surgery was reported by Robionyin 2004. The initial publication reported the use of a piezo scalpel for performing lateral osteotomies through a percutaneous approach. Several months later, Robiony published report on additional applications in rhinoplasty surgery including management of the bony vault as well as medial and lateral osteotomies, and hump removal In 2013 Cochran and Roostaeianreported intranasal lateral osteotomies. In addition to management of the bony vault, deepening of the root of nose was also performed.

Who can go for Rhinoplasty?

Anyone who wants to change the appearance of their nose or those having breathing troubles or other medical issues can opt for Rhinoplasty Surgery.

Septoplasty

Patients suffering with breathing problems like snoring, deviated septum, or inferior turbinate hypertrophy, can opt for a functional nose surgery.

Broken Nose

Patients who have sustained a nasal fracture due to any accident or trauma in a car or due to playing any sport can consider Rhinoplasty which can be performed to straighten the nose and also to achieve a beautiful shape.

What is Crisalix 3D Simulation?

Crisalix technique equipped with 3D glasses is an innovative way toCrisalix 3D Simulation - Rhinoplasty envision the results of cosmetic procedures, breast shaping surgeries and other facial procedures, beforehand, without the actual procedure done. It simulates the after results to be viewed by the patient and get satisfied with the appearance, before making a decision for surgery. This is the first ever, breakthrough Web-based 3D simulation app for plastic surgery.

The technology is simple. During consultation session, our surgeon will use a 3D camera to capture your current images from different angles and then upload it into the advanced Crisalix 3D imaging software. This helps to create the base for further specifications to be added to your body structure, which becomes visible in the enhanced 3D images. The software is programmed to accept the specifics and add to your figure and show the results of your chosen procedure on your very own 3D model.

Thus, it is easy and sensible to have a look at self before investing a lot of time, money and effort in a cosmetic procedure. With Crisalix, you can see your likely results within minutes. And if you want to change something about your appearance as seen in 3D image, you can work with our expert Dr. Rajat Gupta, to tweak the details of the procedure until your 3D image matches the results desired by you post surgery.

What is the procedure?

Rhinoplasty is done under general anesthesia during which the plastic surgeon will add or remove the bones and cartilage from the nose. This is done to change the form or functionality of the nose. The other options to enhance the aesthetics are adding a cartilage graft or remodeling of the tip to make it look younger and fitter. Fillers or fat grafts can also be put in to increase the volume and give that youthful look. Some patients prefer silicone, but it comes with its risks of infection.

Mechanism of Action of Piezotome Device

This Piezotomedevice uses ultrasonic i.e. high speed sound waves to create vibrations in tissue. These vibrations cause gentle breaking apart of tissue surfaces to cut tissues, all while avoiding damage to underlying structures. These devices minimize soft tissue injury, because a frequency of 25 to 29 kHz is utilized to cut bone, although a frequency greater than 50 kHz is necessary to cut neurovascular structures. Piezoelectric inserts have the ability to selectively act on bones and/or hard cartilage, without injuring soft tissues: skin, mucosa, and flimsy cartilages such as the upper lateral cartilages (ULCs) and lower lateral cartilages.

Importantly, the fracture lines created by piezoelectric instruments are very accurate and eliminate the risk of radiating fracture lines encountered with traditional instrumentation. In other words, it treats the areas that need treatment in a highly targeted and precise way, all while keeping damage to a minimum.

Advantages of Piezotome Rhinoplasty

  • It reduces soft tissue trauma to zero. So bruising and swelling is almost nonexistent.
  • Owing to controlled cuts, the formed lines appear as if sculpted.
  • It prevents uncontrolled bone fractures due to use of hammer and osteotome methods or micro-motor rhinoplasty instrumentation. Thus, it prevents step-off deformities and contour irregularities.
  • Postoperative recovery is faster because it does not cause damage to the soft tissue surrounding the blood vessels and cartilages, so patients may return to their daily lives more quickly. Postoperative pain is typically less as well.
  • The accuracy of reshaping the nasal bones is enhanced leading to increased patient satisfaction.
  • Complication rates and the need for revision surgery is reduced after rhinoplasty.

What is the Recovery Time?

Recovery after Traditional Rhinoplasty

After the operation a splint will be placed on your nose. The nasal orifices will be covered and packed with paraffin gauze for 24 to 48 hours. You will be required to wear a patch on the upper lip that you will have to change many times a day. In some cases, patients experience any slight bleeding, for which they can use a wet cotton swab and place it on the nose till the bleeding stops.

In 7-9 days the splint will be removed and you will be able to do your day-to-day activities. The bruises & swelling will diminish in the next few days and the nose will get softer over a few months and get back to normal. Avoid sun in the initial days of surgery.

Within 15 days, you can start practicing light sports, but it is recommended to resume heavy exercises only after a month and consulting your surgeon.

Recovery after Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty

The recovery afterultrasonic rhinoplastyis similar to traditional rhinoplasty. You still need to wear a nasal splint for seven days. You still need to sleep with your head of bed elevated. But since there is far less intra-operative trauma, the patient experiences less swelling, and almost no bruising.

The major difference is that your nose looks more presentable to the public early on and the long-term final result is enhanced once full healing has occurred.

Are there any side effects?

Rhinoplasty is a very safe procedure and when performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, has minimal to no side effects. Few of the common side effects may include swelling, bruising, infection or skin rash that is temporary and will diminish within next few days. During the first weeks after surgery, breathing may be difficult due to incisions, scars, mucous hypertrophy and valvular, collapse. This will disappear in a few weeks.

Final Result

Clinically, the final result will depend on bone cartilaginous structure and type of skin of each person. Every single patient will be aware of all surgical possibilities and what to expect from surgery. To be able to observe the final result and evaluate it will take from 6 months to 1 year.
