The nose surgery is of two kinds. The two open nose surgery and the closed nose surgery. The nose surgery is performed under the expert supervison of authentic surgeon. The patients going for nose surgery are subjected to sedation or general anesthesia.
In closed nose surgery, the incisions are made towards the inner portion of the nostrils. In the open nose surgery an added and an almost invisible incision or cut is made across that portion of skin that demarcates the nostrils. The surgeon performing nose surgery first of all separates the soft tissues and the skin of the nose from the inner portions of the nose. The surgeon then reshapes the bone and the cartilage and finally once the entire procedure is complete, the incisions or cuts made are then closed. Some of the surgeons practicing nose surgery, use stent or inside the nose that is followed by another stunt or tape over the exterior of nose.
In some of the cases of nose surgery, the surgeon also shapes a small portion of the bone or the cartilage that is derived from the body of patient himself and herself. This bone or the cartilage is used as a graft in order to strengthen the shape of the nose. In specific cases of nose surgery, synthetic implants are also used in order to enhance bridge portion of the nose.
