The surgeon’s goal is, of course, for his patient to be satisfied with the result. In rhinoplasty, this satisfaction can be very subjective and, of course, depends on the patient’s idea of the ideal nose he would like to obtain. The best rhinoplasty expert in Florida specializes in nose jobs and should be considered when wanting to get your nose job done.
Examination of The Patient's Nose Is Therefore An Essential Prerequisite
The purpose of this examination is to objectify the aesthetic “anomalies” but also to ensure good respiratory function.
We can thus highlight:
- a bump, bony, cartilaginous or osteocartilaginous, complete or rather making a wave appearance.
- Conversely, a saddle which is usually low, post-traumatic or postoperative.
- A deviated nose, either homogeneously or in S, rectilinear or comma.
- A fine point, triangular, round, square, symmetrical or not, in a good position, too raised, falling spontaneously or with a smile.
- Nostrils round, elongated, symmetrical or not, thick or thin.
- A median or eccentric columella, retrused or on the contrary in gout.
- Thin or thick skin, previous scars, or dermal nevus-like lesions.
- Finally, a good quality respiratory system or, on the contrary, a septal deviation associated or not with hypertrophy of the inferior turbinates, perforation of a septum.
In Rhinoplasty We Can Use The Morphing Technique
Many surgeons offer patients a morph that is supposed to be the result that will be obtained.
Although this morphing technique is already very old, I’m still quite resistant to it for several reasons:
- The first is undoubted that I prefer that it is the patients who intervene as much as possible in their rhinoplasty project.
- The second is that, even with 3D cameras, in the vast majority of cases, the morphing will concern the profile and the face, but these two elements in a separate way.
- However, the nose is three-dimensional, and each change in the profile will have an impact on the face.
- The third reason is that I saw a lot of patients, consulting after having been operated by another team, and who were dissatisfied because the result did not correspond to the morphing that had been proposed to them, a result which, however, sometimes and even often was of very good quality!
In the nose, these stakes are represented by the bony canopy and the cartilaginous skeleton, and the web is, of course, the skin.
It will therefore always be necessary to take this into account in the rhinoplasty project and sometimes not to want to be too excessive in reducing the nasal volume to avoid, from the face in particular, to obtain a thickening of the nose in general and of the tip in particular.
