The doctor would then reshape the underlying bone and cartilage to attain the desired improvements. This can encompass various adjustments such as reducing or augmenting the nasal bridge, refining the nasal tip, and making changes to the nostrils, to achieve the desired outcome.
Cartilage grafts from other parts of the body, such as the septum or ear, may be used to provide additional structure and support to the newly shaped nose as required.
Upon completing the reshaping process, the doctor will close the incision using sutures.
After the surgery, you would need to follow your surgeon’s instructions for post-operative care. This may include avoiding strenuous activities, keeping your head elevated, and taking prescribed medications to manage discomfort and prevent infection.
