Rhinoplasty (rhonos, plassein, to shape) is a surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons to improve the structure and appearance of the nose. It may be performed to reshape, resize, or reposition the nose, for cosmetic reasons or for functional ones such as correcting breathing problems caused by a deviated septum. This surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and can be done for both men and women of any age who are unhappy with the shape or size of their nose.
During this surgery the nose is reshaped by altering or removing tissue, adding implants or grafts, or straightening the septum. Then the skin is re-draped over the new framework and closed with stitches. Swelling and bruising are normal after the operation but will subside within a few weeks. A small plastic splint is sometimes used for support while the nose heals.
The nose is one of the central features of the face and can have a huge impact on facial balance and aesthetics when it is misshapen or large. Dr Anastasatos is an artist when it comes to nose reshaping and can achieve exceptional results for his Cyprus patients.
Medically known as Rhinoplasty, this is an extremely common and safe cosmetic surgical procedure. Despite its popularity, it is important to choose your surgeon carefully and ensure that they have the experience to perform this delicate yet effective procedure. Also, it is essential to follow the post-operative care instructions carefully and attend all of your follow-up appointments to get the best possible results. cyprus rhinoplasty
