Men or women from eighteen years who want to improve the harmony of their face, modifying the shape or size of their nose, or those who suffer some type of nasal trauma or respiratory problems.
We carry out a physical examination and a personalized interview.
We perform an exploration of the cutaneous, bone and cartilaginous structure of the nasal pyramid and also, and very important, its functionality (the breath function).
From the analysis of your medical history and your motivations we recommend:
-The most appropriate technique to be applied, as well as the results the patient will obtain.
The surgery is performed in a surgery room, usually under general anesthesia or with local anesthesia plus sedation. It lasts between 1h and 2h.
We make an incision to separate the skin from the osteo-cartilaginous skeleton (bone and cartilage) and then carry out the timely remodeling.
Patients will leave the surgery room with a small plastic splint and a tamponade lasting between two and four days.
Patients will be treated with the appropriate postoperative medication, to alleviate possible pain, discomfort, swelling, etc., and from of the first week or maximum ten days, the nasal splint will be removed.
The edema or remnants of ecchymosis will be controlled in the following weeks and months, but patients can come back to work relatively fast, in approximately 2 weeks.
