Introduction to Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty (also known as “nose surgery” and “nose job”) is a surgical operation that improves the appearance, size, and shape of the nose as well as correcting any pre-existing functional flaws associated with a deformed nose. The goal of a rhinoplasty in certain uncommon situations may be to repair any damage caused to the nose as a result of an accident or injury.

Knowing the anatomy of the nose is crucial when we discuss rhinoplasty. The top layer of the nose, which consists of bone, is divided from the lower layer, which is made up of cartilage. In order to achieve good and natural-looking results, rhinoplasty may be performed on all three components: bone, cartilage, and skin.

Types of Rhinoplasty Surgery

The following are the types of rhinoplasty based on procedure:

  1. Open rhinoplasty: Dr. Nilesh Satbhai will make an incision in the columella, which connects all relevant parts of your nose. The tip is then folded upwards to open up space for surgery and correct any imperfections within it. This type of procedure makes access easy because it is done directly through one opening at once.

  2. Closed rhinoplasty: Closed rhinoplasty is a much more delicate procedure than an open one. The incisions are made within the nostrils, so there will be no scarring and it’s difficult to see because of restricted tissue dissection.

  3. Septoplasty: A septoplasty procedure aims to correct a deviated nasal passage and improve breathing.

Who is a good candidate for Rhinoplasty?

In order to be eligible for rhinoplasty, patients must be adults with completed facial growth. Additionally, patients must either be non-smokers or willing to quit smoking for the period prescribed by Dr. Nilesh Satbhai . Finally, patients must be physically healthy in order to undergo surgery. If you fit into the above criteria then you may be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty.

What will happen during consultation for Rhinoplasty in Mumbai?

Dr. Nilesh Satbhai will go over all your medical history and explain the surgical procedure in detail during the consultation. The type of rhinoplasty is determined by taking into account the patient’s individual situation.

A physical examination will be performed and prior operations if any, and expectations for the procedure are noted.

Dr. Nilesh Satbhai ’s main focus is on patient safety and attaining the patient’s goals for the final outcome. Dr. Nilesh places a high value on the consultation, looking at all aspects and concerns in order to provide the finest results possible.

What is the procedure for Rhinoplasty in Mumbai?

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient surgery, which means the patient will not be admitted to the hospital before or after the operation. The rhinoplasty may be completed in a few hours’ time and patients are able to go home straight afterward.

The following are the stages involved in the complete operation:

  • The general procedure consists of giving general or local anesthesia, as well as intravenous sedation. Dr. Nilesh Satbhai makes the best choice based on each patient’s situation.
  • The incisions must now be made. During the consultation, the type of rhinoplasty—open or close—is determined. Depending on the type, the incision is then made either externally or internally.
  • Dr. Nilesh Satbhai then reshapes the nose. The procedure may include one or more of the following:
    • Changing the length of the tip of the nose
    • Changing the size of the nose
    • Changing the width of the nose.
  • In the event that the nose needs implants, Dr. Nilesh Satbhai utilizes material determined during the consultation (silicone, cartilage, or bone).
  • Noses may be widened and shortened by adding or removing cartilage or bone within the nose. The most popular technique to improve a nose is to use autologous cartilage from the septum. Cartilage rib grafts are also possible. Fat injections and fillers can be used to shape and conceal flaws. This process continues until the desired form of the nose is achieved.
  • A septoplasty is a surgery that is used to straighten the nose and cure breathing problems in people who have a deviated septum. The openings are stitched up after the shape of the nose has been modified.

Dr. Nilesh Satbhai , a renowned and well-known Plastic Surgeon, performs rhinoplasty/nose surgery with complete accuracy to provide patients with an attractive nose.

What factors influence Rhinoplasty cost in Mumbai?

If rhinoplasty is done to reconstruct a damaged nose following an accident or to improve the nose’s functioning (like septoplasty surgery), insurance may cover it. If the surgery is only for cosmetic or aesthetic reasons, it will be considered cosmetic and hence not covered by insurance. The total cost of a rhinoplasty includes numerous elements like:

  • Fees for consultation and the medical staff
  • Cost of pre-surgical tests and post-surgery dressing
  • Cost of the surgical facility

The fees for a rhinoplasty are determined by the sort of nose surgery performed, the approach utilized, the surgeon’s skill and experience, the location of the facility where the operation is performed, and whether or not it has been certified.

What are the benefits of Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Some benefits of rhinoplasty surgery are:

  1. Rhinoplasty can help reduce the size and length of your nose.
  2. If you’re unhappy with the shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can reshape it to your liking.
  3. A rhinoplasty can also improve the symmetry of your nose.
  4. If you have difficulty breathing through your nose, a septoplasty may be able to help fix that issue.

What will happen after Rhinoplasty Surgery?

After the procedure, the inside of your nose is filled with gauze wick. A bandage is put on the outside part of the nose.

You may walk by yourself within eight hours and be released the same day or the next morning, depending on Dr. Nilesh Satbhai ’s assessment of your vitals. You must remain indoors for the first 48 hours after surgery. 

At 48 hours after surgery, Dr. Nilesh will change the dressing. Then, the gauze wick is removed. Dissolvable stitches mean there is no need for removal. They dissolve when they’re done healing. After seven days, the dressing is removed. For 10 to 14 days, a plaster must be worn.

The nasal area and surrounding region may initially appear swollen. Some people’s eyes might appear puffy. This is not a problem because it is a normal response from the body after a medical procedure. The swelling will gradually subside over two weeks.

The swelling’s last stage is at the tip of the nose. After the swelling has subsided, you can see the final appearance of the nose, which might take up to 6 months in some cases.

Pigment buildup under the skin causes darkening of the whites of the eyes (or around the nostrils) in red, purple, and black spots. It will go away on its own after 3 weeks.

Sometimes, Dr. Nilesh Satbhai may prescribe pain medication. You must follow the doctor’s advice exactly. Dr. Nilesh will also give specific instructions for treating the wound. These include taking a bath rather than a shower, limiting extreme facial expressions for at least a few hours, and avoiding strenuous exercise for at least a few weeks.

Routine checkups are necessary to ensure that the healing is being followed and results can be seen.

What are the possible complications of Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Dr. Nilesh Satbhai takes great care to ensure that the surgery proceeds without complications. However, like with any other surgery, there is a risk of anesthesia. The following are the other potential issues associated with this surgery:

  • Bleeding
  • Chances of infection
  • Silicone-implant rejection
  • Reoperation: After the initial surgery, some patients may require additional operations. Such procedures are generally done at least six months after the primary operation. It should be noted that all of these risks are uncommon and not every individual will experience them.
