RHINOPLASTY SINGAPORE (NOSE SURGERY SINGAPORE)

What Is The Rhinoplasty Procedure?

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a ‘nose job’ in Singapore refers to plastic surgery to the nose to change its shape, size and improve function. During this procedure, various deformities in the nose area can be corrected using various plastic surgery techniques.

Asian noses typically feature a round tip, plumper on the sides, and are commonly described as ‘short’. Besides being common aesthetic concern, the asian nose structure is also more prone to nasal obstructions. Undergoing rhinoplasty can be a daunting procedure and should only be attempted with proper medical advice and consideration.

If Rhinoplasty is done for cosmetic reasons, top rhinoplasty surgeons usually start off with a consultation appointment to get to know you and what you would like for a satisfactory outcome before planning the nose job.

There are two approaches to plastic surgery on the nose, and known to be effective in asian rhinoplasty; closed rhinoplasty (also known as the endonasal technique) and open rhinoplasty. The type of rhinoplasty chosen for you is dependent on the complexity of the surgery involved. Each nose job procedure is done under general anaesthesia and under the care of our highly trained plastic surgeons.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed Rhinoplasty Techniques

In closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made in the nasal mucosa within the nose to gain access to the underlying nasal cartilage and nasal bone. This approach can only be done for limited nasal cosmetic deformities.

If you are considering nose tip surgery, closed rhinoplasty may not be suitable for you as minimal work is done on the nose tip.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty Technique

In Open rhinoplasty, a skin incision is made at the narrowest point of the columella, the bridge of tissue that separates the nostrils at the nasal base. This incision is extended to the nasal mucosa allowing good access to the underlying structures for its correction.

In the Open rhinoplasty procedure, the plastic surgeon makes a skin incision at the narrowest point of the columella, the bridge of tissue that separates the nostrils at the base of the nose. This incision is extended to the nasal mucosa allowing good access to the underlying structures for its correction.

For those with a prominent dorsal hump, nasal cartilage or bone may be reduced to the appropriate size and shape to fit your facial features.

If you have a flat or shallow nose bridge, we can augment your nose bridge with a variety of autoplastic/autogenous grafts that are available during the surgery. We will discuss the pros and cons of each type of implant material with you. In general, we do not graft alloplastic materials (biological materials either manufactured synthetically or materials derived from other species; eg. silicone implants) at the nasal tip region due to the risk of perforation. Instead, nose tip surgery for those with a poorly defined nasal tip, wide nasal tip or poor nasal projection, we opt for various top grafting techniques using your own autogenous grafts from other areas of your own body.

Postoperative tips for care during recovery time

Postoperatively, nasal dressing will be placed in the nasal passage and a nasal splint and tapes will be placed on the nose. You will be placed on soft diet for the first few days and prescribed antibiotic and painkillers.
