East Coast Open Rhinoplasty Conference

Nose surgery or rhinoplasty is one of the most demanded operations in plastic surgery, but it is also one of the most delicate since in addition to working on a key element of facial aesthetics, it should not be forgotten that it acts on an organ respiratory and that it must be ensured that its proper functioning is not altered.

Open rhinoplasty is a technique that is used in cases where there are large deformities in the nasal tip, in cases of secondary rhinoplasties (noses already operated), traumatic noses (which have suffered trauma) or congenital malformations such as lip noses cleft. This type of intervention leaves a small scar at the base of the columella since it requires making an incision or cut to have direct access to the anatomy of the nasal tip to place cartilage grafts or modify the large existing asymmetries.

Among the cases that I presented at the conference, I also mentioned the technique with a dermal regenerator, a technique that I developed in 2007 and that allows reconstructing a nose by regenerating the dermis (the deep layer of the patient's own skin) giving the shape desired to the nose. You can consult the specific post about this technique:

Another technique that I apply in 10% of the cases that I operate to achieve the facial proportion after a nose job is the chin augmentation with the fat itself.

Three Questions We Have To Ask Ourselves Before Cosmetic Surgery

The boom in surgical interventions is due to a conjuncture of social and cultural openness in the country, and in light of the elimination of prejudices.

In the case of men and according to the expert, fat reduction in abdomen and sides, gynecomastia, nose reshaping, and hair micro implantation are the most chosen.

When we talk about care measures, we refer to all those aspects that both doctor and patient must consider to minimize the risk of a complication appearing. Here are the top 3 questions to ask ourselves:

What are we looking for?

Professional-patient interviews are essential. The relationship established between the two is a society that begins when the first consultation is held and must last forever. In all types of intervention, it is essential to understand that each case requires a personalized evaluation, an exchange between both parties where the steps to be taken are determined, based on desires and achievable aspirations. Experience is decisive for the operation to be satisfactory.

How will the procedure be performed?

The surgeon must explain both the patient and his relatives the risks of the procedure as well as the scope of the applied technique; and that in the event of a complication, an early diagnosis will be reached, either through a physical examination, enter consultations with other doctors or using complementary diagnostic methods, in order to resolve it without lethal consequences. This point is essential since many times, the fear of being judged by other colleagues means that a surgeon can minimize it and ignore it, wanting to take up the reins when it is too late.

When is the best time to do it?

The best time has no medical specifications. There is no ideal time to perform surgery and that it is related to the seasons of the year. Although it is true that some interventions should be carried out in winter, for example, the facelift to avoid exposure to the sun or the same happens with tummy since the use of the belt in summer is uncomfortable.

What is important to note regarding the ideal moment is that the patient feels safe, confident that what he is doing is under his own determination. The confidence in the medical team is of vital importance to achieving postoperative evolution as expected. It is normal for all patients to enter the operating room with a degree of uncertainty, but it is covered with the tranquility that the professional and his team give him.…
