Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” is a cosmetic surgical procedure for the nose to change the shape or improve the function of the nose. It can be performed for cosmetic reasons or to correct structural issues that impede breathing.
Technique: Rhinoplasty can be performed using either a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. Through these incisions, the surgeon can reshape the bone and cartilage to achieve the desired form or functional improvement.
The goal of rhinoplasty is to create a nasal structure that looks natural, enhances facial harmony, and works properly. It requires a surgeon with a deep understanding of nasal anatomy and an artistic sense to achieve the best outcomes.
- Cosmetic: To change the nose’s size, shape, or angle, often for aesthetic preference.
- Functional: To correct a deviated septum or other structural issues that cause breathing difficulties.
- Reconstructive: After trauma or cancer surgery to restore appearance and function.
- Revision Rhinoplasty: To correct or improve the results of a previous nose surgery.
Micro ear surgery utilizes an operating microscope and precise instruments to treat ear disorders with minimally invasive techniques. It’s indicated for conditions like chronic ear infections, cholesteatoma, and otosclerosis, and can involve procedures like stapedectomy. This approach allows for detailed ear structure visualization, enhancing surgical outcomes and recovery.
