NOSE AND NOSE SEPTUM SURGERY / Corrective rhinoplasty

Reoblikovanje nosa /RHINOPLASTICA/ spada među naše najčešće zahvate estetske hirurgije lica ali i najzahtjevnije operativne zahvate. Postignuti rezultat može nakon ove intervencije cijelom licu dati potpuno drugačiji , skladniji i ljepši izgled. Rinoplastika se najčešće obavlja zajedno sa septoplastikom, funkcionalnom korekcijom nosne pregrade, te se u toku jednog zahvata koriguje i funkcionalni i estetski problem.

Changes in size and shape of the nose (marked nose bridge-aquiline nose, too long, too wide nose, widened or asymmetric top, bent nose top, saddle nose), as well as correction of possible respiratory disorders, or septum deviation.

It is necessary to make all the required laboratory tests after the surgeon's examination, including an ECG and sometimes an RTG image of facial bones and it is advisable to that an anaesthesiologist performs an examination, granting you permission to undergo an operative procedure.

The correction is performed through the incisions inside or outside the nostrils, so there is no visible scar. The procedure consists of changing the shape and position of the nose cartilage and bones. Upon the intervention performed, tampons are placed in the nasal corridors, and a compressive mask on the nose from the outside, which are all removed after seven days.

The surgery usually lasts from 45 min to 2 hours.

The patient breaths through the mouth until the removal of the tampons and the mask, while in the meantime the swelling withdraws up to the greatest extent.

Swellings around the eyes and the surrounding tissue..

Septoplasty is a surgery by which the nose septum is corrected with a view to improving the nose function. It can be performed independently, as well as within the aesthetic nose correction. The surgery includes a removal of the deformed parts of the nose septum and placing the septum in the right position. After the surgery, the patients have tampons in their nose for 2 days. Unlike the septorhinoplasty, the patient does not have any swellings or suffusions.
