Are you thinking about having plastic surgery to fix the size or shape of your nose? If this is your first time having this type of surgery, you may want to consider preservation rhinoplasty. This cosmetic procedure provides an updated approach that can provide superior results compared to traditional rhinoplasty surgical methods. Here are three benefits you can receive from preservation rhinoplasty.
Refined Natural-Looking Appearance
Preservation rhinoplasty can deliver a more refined, natural-looking appearance than traditional rhinoplasty. Conventional surgical techniques remove bone and cartilage from the top of the nose, which can create irregularities and asymmetry with the dorsal lines of the nose. In preservation rhinoplasty, bone and cartilage are removed from underneath to ensure dorsal lines remain unchanged for a less-operated-on appearance.
Improved Breathing Function
During traditional rhinoplasty, some of the nasal structures that support breathing function may become weakened or damaged as bone and cartilage is removed. As a result, you may need revision rhinoplasty to restore these structures. Preservation rhinoplasty minimizes potential damage to nasal structures by keeping critical support structures undisturbed, which can improve overall breathing function.
During preservation rhinoplasty, incisions are made on different planes of the nose than the incisions made during traditional rhinoplasty. This can help keep lymphatics and blood vessels responsible for healing and circulation intact to mitigate potential bruising and swelling. As a result, you can experience a faster recovery and fewer complications compared to traditional rhinoplasty. Many individuals are able to resume normal activities within a week following the procedure.
