Nasal Hump Removal Surgery
The arched nose is a common nose type around the world. According to researches, most patients who want to have a nose-job suffer from the nasal hump.
If the nasal hump in the nose is too much, the nose will have a bent-down shape. If the nasal hump is low, then it might create a nose-shape that is spread to the sides.
People who have an nasal hump and are not happy with their nose, can obtain a nose without an hump with the nasal hump removal surgery.
The Nasal Hump Removal (Nose Reshaping)
The structure and cartilages of the patient’s nose are examined in detail before the surgery.
If the nasal hump is high, cartilages are rasped and made as small as possible.
If the nasal hump is low or incomplete, cartilages taken from other parts of the patient’s body are added to the nose’s structure.
The purpose of this surgery is to create a nose that is smaller and in proportion to the face.
In the nasal hump removal surgery, it is crucial to pay close attention to the measurament for the lifting of the tip of the nose, otherwise the natural structure and apperance of the nose may be damaged.
The surgery is usually carried out under general anesthesia and takes 2 hours on average. However, this duration can be longer if extra operations are required.
The Period After the Nasal Hump Removal Surgery
The patient stays in the hospital on the night of the operation and may leave the hospital the next day after all checks.
The patient is advised to lay on his/her back while sleeping, so the edema, which might occur after the surgery, can spread evenly over and around the nose.
As with every nose surgery, bruising, swelling and mild pain can normally occur after this nose surgery. These will diminish over time and disappear.
If a cast or tampon is used in surgery, they will be removed by the doctor within 4-5 days.
It is recommended to go to the check-ups determined by the doctor.
