One of the great things about life in the 21st century is we have the ability to alter our appearance in so many ways, especially as plastic surgery has developed the way it has. Many men and women are far from happy with the shape of their nose and feel it is a negative factor regarding their appearance, and if you are thinking of having rhinoplasty, here are a few things you should know.
- Open & Closed Rhinoplasty – There are two incision areas when the surgeon carries out rhinoplasty; the open method, which involves making tiny incisions along the thin strip of flesh that sits between the nostrils, and the closed method, when incisions are made inside the nostrils, leaving no visible scarring. Most surgeons recommend open nose surgery (called เสริมจมูกแบบเปิด in Thai), as this allows the specialist more freedom of movement and he can access the nose tissue and cartilage without any difficulty.
- Silicone Vs Natural – In order to perfectly contour the nose, the surgeon has two choices; he can insert silicone or graft some fat from the patient, and this would depend on your preference, plus the results you are looking to achieve. When you first sit down with the plastic surgeon, they would first discover what you are looking to achieve, then he or she would explain the process, making sure that the patient fully understands both the risks and the expected results.
- Choosing a Clinic – If you happen to live in or around Bangkok, there are many top-class rhinoplasty clinics that are well-established and have state of the art facilities, and an online search would be the best place to start your quest for the right clinic. Once you think you have found a suitable clinic, make an appointment to discuss things with the plastic surgeon and they will help you to make the right choices regarding the treatment.
- Post Op Guidelines – The surgeon would issue you a list of do’s and don’ts, which should be followed, as this will result in a rapid recovery, and within a short time, you can resume your normal daily routine.
Improving your appearance can have a dramatic effect on one’s self-confidence, and if you feel you would like to have your nose contoured by a specialist, all it takes is an online search to find a nearby clinic.
