NosePeople who want to know about the cosmetic surgery of rhinoplasty in Malaga and the Costa del Sol, can receive basic information on this website of Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon.

What is a rhinoplasty?

With a rhinoplasty (nose surgery) the shape of the nose is changed, it is reduced or increased in size, the tip is changed or the angle between the nose and the upper lip is altered. Likewise the nasal orifices can be narrowed and congenital problems, trauma and some respiratory problems can also be corrected.

This cosmetic surgery is dedicated to improving the shape, size and general appearance of the nose. The nose will have a more natural appearance making it more harmonious with the other structural features of the face.

It is possible to correct cosmetic problems such as pronounced osseous gibbus (the bone that emerges from the back of the nose similar to a hump), deviations to the left or right of the entire nose and congenital malformations which are common in patients with sequelae from cleft lip and palate and deviation of internal bones. Rhinoplasty surgery is also used to improve nasal respiration.

How is nose surgery performed?.

Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, performs always the rhinoplasty in an operating theatre, within a clinic or hospital in Malaga or the Costa del Sol. Occasionally a simple local anesthetic which desensitizes the nose and surrounding area can be used. More commonly it is carried out under general anesthetic whereby the patient remains asleep.

The incisions are made inside or at the base of the nose, permitting the plastic and cosmetic surgeon to reshape the cartilage and bones of the nose. The cosmetic surgery procedure tends to last between one to two hours, and in more complex cases it may last longer. The technique generally consists of separating the skin of the nose from the bone and cartilage that supports it. The skin is then sculpted into the appropriate shape and then reattached to its support. This plastic surgery can be performed from within the nose via small incisions inside the nostrils.

Recovery and Results after a Rhinoplasty.

Upon completion of the operation, a plaster cast will be placed on the nose which will maintain its new shape. Nasal plugs will be inserted to stop the bleeding.

During the first day your face will feel swollen and you will experience discomfort which can be adequately controlled with medication. After a week, or maybe two, the plaster cast will be removed and if stitches are used, they will be removed at the same time. Bruising and swelling will noticeably reduce from two weeks onwards.

However, remember that each rhinoplasty case and each patient may vary, and therefore this information should be taken purely as a general guide and explanation. It should not be considered a replacement of the detailed information that the plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Ruiz Ruiz will provide during the personal consultation and evaluation with her.
