Surgical and Non Surgical Nose Job Processes

A nose job, also referred to as rhinoplasty is a cosmic surgery process that works to reconstruct the nose either for aesthetic beauty or for reconstructive surgery. This surgical process started from way back in 18 BC through the works of Sushruta, an ancient Indian surgeon who documented his science in his writings commonly referred to as Sushruta Samhita. The surgery experts in London still borrows heavily from these writings to date. However, there are many changes that have taken place to the process over the years especially with improving technology. Some of the people who have contributed significantly to the modernization of the rhinoplasty process include Johann Dieffenbach and Dr. Wilfred S. Goodman, who was the first to use the open nose job. London surgeons have improved significantly from the works of Dr. Wilfred S. Goodman.

There are both surgical and non surgical processes.

Surgical Process

The surgical process is a more commonly used process as compared to the non surgical nose job. London surgeons use either the open or closed surgery techniques. In the closed process, the surgeon places the incisions in the nostrils to effect the desired change. On the other hand, the open surgery involves placing the incision across the nostril separator. The surgeon separates the soft tissues of the nose from the nose bone. The surgeon also perform some form of adjustments to the nose bone before placing the incision to either widen, elongate or change the general structure of the bone. The surgery is done under general anesthesia and it usually take a few hours. The healing process is fast and there are very few complications associated with the process.

A primary rhinoplasty is used to refer to the first time that an individual undertakes the nose job. London surgeons may at times not get it perfect in the first surgical attempt. The surgery may effect an unnatural looking nose which is either too long or that does not match well with the rest of the face. Therefore, in most cases, an individual may need to undertake a secondary nose job. London rhinoplasty experts will in this case work to rectify the defective nose look and make it look as per the request of the person undergoing the surgery. At times, the surgeon may also involve a cheek job or extra adjustments to other parts of the person’s face. However, with modern technology in the plastic surgery techniques, one can now get a graphical image of the results of a surgery even before undergoing the nose job. London surgeons are therefore using this graphical technique to give their clients a visual look before performing the surgery.

Non Surgical Nose Job

For the non surgical nose job, London doctors will simply inject various medication to cause a lengthening or expansion of the nose. The process is usually seen as being safer as there is no surgery involved. It therefore requires no anesthesia and the processes can easily be effected as an outpatient procedure. However, the limitations of this process is that it may not effect a significant change on the nose. Another alternative technique is use of an expander to stretch the nose.
