Which is better? Open or closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty?
The best ultrasonic rhinoplasty treatment will be the one that helps you achieve a final shape for your nose that is consistent with your features, harmonious with your face and that, like any cosmetic surgery treatment, makes you feel confident in your appearance and self-esteem.
We recommend the Open Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty when the cases are of a certain complexity (for example, to modify large deformities of the tip of the nose). Through a small incision at the base of the columella (the most anterior part of the medial wall of the nostrils), the structures of the nose are accessed. The scar will be almost imperceptible.
The closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty does not leave any external scar because the incisions They are made inside the nostrils. These incisions allow access to the inside of the nose to carve and/or model the bones of the nose and nasal cartilage. Thus, a new structure for the nose is achieved, at the same time that the skin and mucous membranes adapt to the desired shape.
When are the results of a rhinoplasty seen?
After 6 days the splint and the nose will have a correct and beautiful shape. On an aesthetic level, you will appreciate the final results of a rhinoplasty in about 6 months after the intervention. The modification of the aesthetic and functional aspects of the nose follows a slow, progressive evolution, and that, despite the fact that it seems like a long period, can even go unnoticed by the patient because it is very gradual. The 90% of the inflammation disappears after 3 months.
What should you know before undergoing rhinoplasty?
The previous medical examination It is essential: in Dr. Jorge Planas' office, the surgery and otorhinolaryngology team will carry out a personalized evaluation to assess both aesthetic and functional defects to be corrected and detect possible anomalies that may contraindicate this operation. As preoperative care, the skin of the nose and the surrounding skin must not have inflammations or infections. You will also have to take precautions and avoid or cure a flu or cold before the operation, to avoid nasal congestion.
The postoperative care in a rhinoplasty are very important. You will have to wear a splint for a few days, but it is not a painful postoperative period at all.
