Reconstruction of the external and internal nose (rhinoseptoplasty)

Elimination of the nasal septum deviation in combination with the elimination of defects of the external part of the nose is called rhinoseptoplasty. This plastic surgery allows not only to improve the aesthetic structure of the face but can also eliminate some functional pathological conditions (chronic sinusitis, frequent nosebleeds, impaired nasal breathing).

The highly specialised surgeons at GRACE Centre correct even the most complex defects and deformations of the nasal septum. Modern technological developments contribute to the high accuracy of these interventions. An individual approach to solving this problem guarantees the high efficiency of rhinoseptoplatitis.

What is rhinoseptoplasty?
Rhinoseptoplasty is a complex operation that is performed to eliminate a deviated nasal septum and conduct an aesthetic correction of the shape of the nose. Rhinoseptoplasty often has medical indications.

Duration of surgery:  40-120 minutes

Rehabilitation:  7-10 days

Our approach to rhinoseptoplasty:

  • Choosing the new, most natural and harmonious shape of nose taking into account the physiological characteristics of the patient and the state of her nasal septum.
  • Use of unique 3D-simulation equipment to create an exact 3D-model of the nose after rhinoseptoplasty.
  • Increased attention to the safety of Patients.
  • Reduction of rehabilitation period 2-3 times in comparison with other clinics.

Indications for surgery:

  • Deformation of the nose and nasal septum due to trauma.
  • Presence of a congenital defect in the structure of the nose and nasal septum.
  • Incorrect size and shape of the nasal septa and its septa and concha.
  • Impaired breathing and snoring during sleep.
  • Blockage of the nasal passage.
  • Chronic edema of the nasal mucosa that causes allergic rhinitis.
  • Chronic inflammation of the nasal sinuses (sinusitis).
  • Frequent colds.
  • Frequent nasal bleeding.
  • Dryness and itching in the nasal cavity, pain in the facial area, headaches due to the curved septum.

Psychological and other motives
Apart from the deviated nasal septum, there are:

  • Discontent due to excessive length of nose.
  • Psychological complexes due to large nostrils.
  • Elimination of the hump on the nose.
  • Thickened or turned-up tip of the nose.
  • Saddle-shaped nose
  • Bulges in front of the tip of the nose.
  • The desire to have a make the form of a turned-up nose more perfect and correct.

Types of deviated nasal septum
Compensatory deviation of the nasal septum includes the irregular shape of not only the nasal septum but also the cocha.

Perforation in the nasal septum is a diagnosis confirming that there is a hole in the nasal septum which can provoke breathing disorders.
Complications due to deviated nasal septum

  • As a rule, a patient snores during sleep and there are crusts and itching in the nose.
  • The mucous outflow is impaired that results in swelling, sinusitis, maxillar sinusitis, and frontitis accompanied by breathing disorders.
  • The deviated nasal septum provokes an allergic reaction.

Therefore, rhinoseptoplasty solves not only aesthetic problems but also improves the overall well-being of a patient

What is rhinoseptoplasty?
Surgical intervention involves performing the inner incisions (through the nostrils). Also, elimination of the nasal septum defect is possible to combine with simultaneous rhinoplasty through the incisions on the external surface.

During the surgery, the doctor cuts and partially lifts the mucosa that covers the cartilage. These manipulations are necessary to reach the cartilage and bone tissue that are located in the central part of the cavity. After that, the septum is straightened. To do this, it is necessary to separate the cartilage from the base of the bone and then excise its deformed parts.
Possible complications
After rhinoseptoplasty, difficulty breathing, loss of smell, decreased the sensitivity of the skin of the nose and upper lip, prolonged swelling, inflammation, etc are possible.

However, the ten-year experience of physicians at GRACE, the use of high-quality technologies and medications and careful approach at GRACE to the safety minimise the incidence of the above-listed risks.

Self-preparation for surgery

  • 14 days before surgery, you should stop taking hormones and aspirin-containing drugs. In case this cannot be done, it is necessary to tell the surgeon about the systematic administration of these medications. Simultaneously, you should quit smoking or minimise it up to 2 cigarettes a day.
  • 7 days before surgery, it is necessary to exclude spiced and fatty foods as well as stop drinking alcohol.
  • In the evening before surgery, you should not take any food as for safe anesthesia, the stomach must be empty before surgery.
  • In the morning on the day of surgery, when arriving at the clinic, you should have comfortable clothes, personal hygiene products, spare underwear and all necessary documents and test results with you.

Durint the preparation to rhinoseptoplasty, attention should be paid to adequate rest and balanced nutrition. The intake of vitamins or, in case of serious operations, preparations containing iron are prescribed

The course of complete rehabilitation

Day 2 Discharge from the inpatient unit, it is allowed to have a shower
Day 7 Removal of the residual stitches. Returning life to normal
After 3 You can evaluate the result of an operation and attend social events.
1 months
It is allowed to visit the sauna, solarium, fitness centre. You can return to an active sex life.

Specific aspects of the postoperative period

  • During first 2 days, a patient should stay in the inpatient unit a hospital and have rest. In the case of painful sensations, the doctor prescribes her painkillers.
  • During 7 days after surgery, the patient should wear a special bandage. During this period, it is recommended to sleep on the back with an elevated head (on a high pillow). Also it is forbidden to blow your nose
  • During one month, steam baths, sauna, solarium, and sunbathing are prohibited as well as doing active sports and swimming.
  • During 2 months, the skin of the nose area should be treated especially carefully, the mechanical cleansing of the face is contraindicated. In addition, doctors strongly recommend not to wear glasses.

During rehabilitation period, food rich in vitamins, microelements and all necessary substances should be included in a patient’s diet

Detailed consultation is the key to a successful operation
The duration of the primary consultation on rhinoseptoplasty at GRACE lasts not less than 40-50 minutes. This time is necessary to hear and understand as deeply as possible all the needs and desires of a patient. During the consultation, we always strive to help our patients to create the correct understanding of perineoplasty. We will reconstruct the exact 3D-simulation of a new nose and simulate different variations of the final appearance using a unique equipment Vectra ХТ 3D. Within 15 minutes, a patient will be able to see how her nose will look like after the surgery and make corrections according to her preferences.
