If you are considering rhinoplasty, you must have done your research on the costs, side effects, and benefits of rhinoplasty. But did you know that not all nose jobs are the same?
Understanding the different types of rhinoplasty can help you decide what is best for you. Keep on reading to learn more about the different types of rhinoplasty.
What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a process to reshape the nose and enhance your nose. It can help change the appearance of your nose or help with improving your breathing. The upper part of your nose is bone and the lower is cartilage, and rhinoplasty can change the bone, cartilage, and skin.
You can get rid of the bump on your nose, make your nose straighter, or reduce its length or size. Getting a nose job can also help improve breathing difficulties by unblocking nasal passages
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Getting rhinoplasty can help you get a more youthful look. It can allow you to breathe better, which will improve your sleep. No one can deny the further benefits of sleeping well including a stronger immune system, preventing weight gain, and strengthening your heart.
Types of Rhinoplasty
If you are looking for tips for getting a nose job, the first thing you need to do is understand more about rhinoplasty. There are five different types of rhinoplasty that you need to know about:
1. Closed Rhinoplasty
Closed rhinoplasty is the most common type of nose job and it’s less invasive than other procedures. All the incisions are hidden inside the nose, so you don’t have any visible scarring. In this procedure, the nose is lifted slightly up allowing your doctor access to the bone and cartilage.
You will have less swelling and will need less recovery time. This procedure is best for those who need small changes made to their nose. If you need work on your nasal or major structural changes, you need open rhinoplasty.
2. Open Rhinoplasty
In open rhinoplasty, the doctor will make an incision on the skin between your nostrils to get access to the internal nose. With this incision, the doctor will have more freedom to reshape your nose.
This procedure can be more precise and used for those with nasal issues such as collapsed valves or structural deformities. It’s also the procedure used for someone who wants more structural changes to their nose. It’s also more intensive, but with the right doctor, you will have minimal scarring.
3. Tip Plasty
This is the procedure used for those people who only want to change the tip of their nose. If you need to change the bridge of your nose, this procedure will not be sufficient.
4. Filler Rhinoplasty
This is a less common and non-surgical type of rhinoplasty. You can add a filler to your nose to even or fill out small issues. The results are not permanent.
5. Revision Rhinoplasty
After the primary nose job, you may need a secondary procedure if you are not happy with the results or you want further changes. This is called a revision rhinoplasty.
