First, we must say that rhinoplasty is equivalent to the Persian word rhinoplasty, which is a process that can improve the appearance and size of your nose and increase facial harmony and self-confidence. This nose surgery itself is divided into two parts: Beauty and restoration are divided.
Rhinoplasty is performed with the aim of increasing the proportion between the face and nose and removing external defects.

What results can we expect in nose surgery?
To reshape the nose, surgery is performed either using a closed approach, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open approach, where an incision is made on the columella, or a thin strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. . The rest of the cut is similar to the method. Through these incisions, the soft tissues that cover the nose are gently raised, changing the access to the nasal structure.
Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the structure of the nose using cartilage transplanted from other areas of the body. Typically, pieces of cartilage from the septum (split down the middle of the nose) are used for this reason. Sometimes a piece of ear cartilage and rarely a part of rib cartilage can be used.
If your nasal septum is deviated, it can be straightened and the bumps inside the nose can be reduced to improve breathing. Once the underlying structure of the nose has been shaved to the desired shape, the skin and nasal tissue are shaved again and the incisions are closed. Additional incisions may be made in the natural folds of the nostrils to resize them.
Your cosmetic surgeon may place splints and inner tubes to support the nose, because if the septum is surgically removed, it will begin to heal up to a week after surgery. Rhinoplasty usually takes one to two hours, although it may take longer depending on the procedure.

What are the types of nose surgery (rhinoplasty)? Procedures for nose surgery
Types of nose surgery: The two main types of rhinoplasty are open and closed, although there are other types of rhinoplasty. The steps of nose surgery are as follows.
Open rhinoplasty is used for major reshaping of the nose. Incisions are made in the vertical strip of skin that separates the nostrils, called the columella. The skin and soft tissue are then lifted from the underlying structures of the nose so that the surgeon can see the anatomy of the nose.
Closed rhinoplasty is used to partially reshape the nose. Incisions can be made inside the nose. Then the skin of the nose is separated from the bone and cartilage that form its supporting framework. Once exposed, the bone and cartilage can be removed, reshaped, reinforced, or rearranged to achieve the desired new shape.
Secondary rhinoplasty, also called reconstructive rhinoplasty, is performed to correct problems that remain or develop after a previous rhinoplasty.
Although problems may be minor and easily corrected, problems may be more complex, making reconstructive rhinoplasty more difficult. Reconstructive nose surgery can also be performed in an open or closed manner.
Rhinoplasty filler: Filler rhinoplasty (injection gel) involves the use of injectable fillers and gels to “fill in” depressions, flatten sharp angles, or change the angle of the tip of the nose to restore symmetry. For example, instead of removing a bump, your surgeon uses an injectable filler to straighten the nose. While injectable fillers are effective, they do not provide permanent results. And it is not recommended.

What contributes to recovery?
Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis at the Cleveland Clinic Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center. Your recovery will depend on the type of procedure completed.
If the size of the nose is reduced, a splint is used or the nose is gently closed with medicated gauze. An external splint may also be used as primary support during nasal healing. The stitches inside your nose are self-absorbing and do not need to be pulled.
If an incision is made in the vertical band of tissue that separates the nostrils (the columella), skin sutures are used and should be removed within four to seven days.
Swelling and nasal congestion are common for several weeks after surgery. Most patients usually resume light activities after a few days, but it takes several weeks for the nose to fully heal before full physical activity can be performed.

New methods of nose reduction

Laser nose surgery
This method is a newly emerging method that is currently not performed professionally in Iran, and there are no suitable devices for this type of surgery in our country. In this style of erbium laser bone and cartilage reconstruction surgery: yttrium-aluminum-garnet. In this method, with the help of a laser device, the redundant parts of the nose are removed.
Nose reduction with massage
Today, there are many cases where people promise to change your nose permanently by suggesting methods such as nose massage or using nose massage tools. And they promise to achieve your desired nose. But this issue is completely false.
The shape of the nose is mainly composed of cartilage, and cartilage is not an organ that can be significantly changed by massage. Mostly you see small changes in a short period of time. And then all results are lost. If you are looking for a temporary solution, this is recommended.
