Aesthetic or functional rhinoplasty

A large nose with a bump, a large nose that is too wide, a nose that is too long, a crooked nose, a crooked nose, a rounded nose tip,

a drooping tip of the nose, a pointed nose… the request for modification of the appearance of the nasal pyramid or  rhinoplasty

is certainly one of the most requested operations in cosmetic surgery.

More than any other surgical operation, the result must be beyond reproach, as it is seen as “the nose in the middle of the face”.

Rhinoplasty helps to   create a harmonious balance in the face. But this intervention (  rhinoplasty) is not just a simple remodeling technique! It is essential not to forget that the nose is not only a decorative element of the face but also an organ reserved for breathing, filtration, humidification of the air and olfaction.

Different types of rhinoplasty

There is not a  rhinoplasty  but multiple different surgical procedures which makes all the interest but also all the complexity of this type of intervention. Here is an attempt at classification with explanations and results for each procedure where everyone can approach their own case.

Find out what you need to know before considering rhinoplasty surgery

Because beyond the physical change, rhinoplasty brings a real change in self-image. The therapeutic decision

should therefore be carefully considered. The nose holds a central place on the face, it is an element that cannot be

hide. For patients who experience the shape of their nose as a social handicap, this intervention allows them

often to change their view of themselves, with a nose that will not be stereotyped (surgical look) but  a natural nose ,

in accordance with their face and their personality. So that the nose does not appear to be an added piece, the gesture must take into account

of the face as a whole. Nasal corrections can sometimes lead to additional gestures

(especially on the chin) to obtain a balanced profile. Breathing, filtering, smelling, the nose must also provide functions

which must not be altered but on the contrary which can be restored thanks to such an intervention.

The dialogue between the patient and the surgeon is of paramount importance. It will determine what is desired by the patient.

And finally determine what is  technically feasible  by the surgeon and aesthetically suitable for the face.

What is rhinoplasty after all?

Any surgical procedure on the nasal pyramid is considered a rhinoplasty, but it includes a quantity

large number of completely different acts ranging from simple retouching of the nasal tip to total reconstruction.

This is why certain rhinoplasty interventions having a respiratory or  post-traumatic functional character

or tumor can be covered by social security and mutual insurance after a request has been made

prior agreement with social security. In the majority of cases it is a purely

Aesthetic without any refund.

We must differentiate  between functional rhinoplasty , the aim of which is to straighten the septum, a source of difficulty breathing,

corrective  rhinoplasty  , the aim of which is to modify the morphology and volumes of the nose, either at the level of its part

upper bone, or its mobile lower part called cartilaginous. We can thus thanks to rhinoplasty straighten,

shorten or decrease in height and width a nose in its two bony and cartilaginous structures. The surgeries of Rhinoplasty can combine different gestures and can therefore be:

Revision of rhinoplasty by external approach (with scar) patient already operated on with persistence of deformity, fall of the columella, nasal obstruction, decision to undergo surgical revision (rhinoplasty) by external approach, 2 months post-operative

These  different interventions  therefore do not have the same  consequences at all  , particularly in terms of the post-operative follow-up and the expected changes.
