At the Clinic for Plastic Surgery located in Malaga and Benalmadena, Dr. Ruiz Ruiz specializes in plastic and cosmetic surgery of the nose.
What are the benefits of rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can offer many benefits and can help achieve various objectives. Patients can opt for this procedure for aesthetic reasons, as they may not be satisfied with the appearance of their nose, or for functional reasons, such as difficulty breathing. Rhinoplasty can shape the nose by working on the bone and cartilage, and the skin will adapt to the new shape.
The many benefits that patients, interested in undergoing Rhinoplasty often look for, vary greatly. They include eliminating bumps in the nose, correcting deviations, straightening the nose, modifying the nasal tip, improving breathing, and reducing size.
How is Rhinoplasty performed?
Nose surgery, also known as Rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure that typically requires general anesthesia and is performed in a first class hospital in Malaga. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon will make incisions at the base of the nose or inside the nostrils where they will not be visible. This allows the surgeon access to the bone and cartilage and reshape the nose to achieve the desired shape.
The duration of nose surgery can vary depending on the complexity of the case, but it usually takes approximately one to two hours. After the surgery is complete, it is recommended that the patient remains in hospital for at least one night for monitoring to ensure proper recovery.
What type of scars does this Rhinoplasty surgery produce?
The healing process following Rhinoplasty varies from person to person and depends on the type of procedure performed. Scarring is a concern for many patients undergoing Rhinoplasty, whether it is an open or closed procedure. However, rest assured that in both types of Rhinoplasty, the scars are typically minimal and barely visible, particularly in the case of a closed Rhinoplasty.
It is important to note that the appearance of scars can improve or worsen depending on the patient’s post-operative habits and care, as well as their exposure to the sun. Therefore, following proper aftercare instructions and avoiding excessive sun exposure can help minimize the appearance of scars and promote optimum healing.
What is the postoperativeperiod like? How long does recovery take?
The postoperative period following Rhinoplasty is typically straightforward, and following the recommendations of Dra. Maribel can help ensure a smooth recovery.
After the Rhinoplasty procedure, the patient will need to wear dressings in each nostril for one or two days, as well as a plaster cast to help maintain the new shape of the nose in its correct position. After one to two weeks, the cast will be removed, and the patient can return to their normal activities, while still following the recommendations provided by Dra. Maribel Ruz.
While inflammation in the nose may persist for up to a month following the procedure, patients can generally resume most normal activities once the cast is removed. However, it’s important to note that recovery may be more intense for those who smoke or drink alcohol, as both habits can negatively affect healing, hydration, and proper blood flow.
To ensure proper healing, patients should avoid engaging in intense exercise or contact sports for two to three months after surgery, although other daily activities typically do not impact the recovery process. In most cases, six months after surgery, the nose and any small scars will have reached their final appearance.
