There is no doubt that a person’s nose is one of the first things we look at when we see someone. A nose, beautiful or ugly (that is, proportionate with the rest of the face, stylized, symmetrical and soft shapes) greatly influences the aesthetic appearance of a man or a woman.
Many people do not have any complex and like to show off their nose as “it has touched”, but for many others, a wide nose or with a very pronounced or deviated septum, for example, makes them feel tremendously insecure or their appearance produces some rejection.
Fortunately, nose surgery today is a solution for all those people who, due to aesthetics (or due to an injury or functional problem) want or need to improve their appearance.
In our blog we have talked on occasion about the different types of rhinoplasties, but in today’s post we are going to focus on wide nose rhinoplasty.
What is a wide nose?
Before getting into the matter and explaining how to operate a wide nose, let’s try to explain what we understand, from the medical point of view, when talking about wide nose.
Well, we talk about a wide nose when the width of the entire nose, including the wings and nostrils is greater than the distance between the eyes.
The origin of the wide nose is ethnic or genetic, that is, it comes from birth, and is basically due to the existence of a wide nasal bone and / or cartilage in pyramidal structure. In any case, and even being the origin of mainly genetic, the truth is that the nose does not stop growing throughout the life of people and, sometimes that growth can be excessive, giving rise in adulthood to a wide nose, which was not had years ago.
What you should know about wide nose rhinoplasty
Wide nose rhinoplasty focuses mainly on rebuilding the nasal bone and depending on the desired shape and the nose in question, it will also be convenient to remodel the cartilage in order to improve the shape of the tip of the nose and nostrils.
And how this is done, then through surgery. With a nose rhinoplasty we can achieve a balance between the principle of the septum and the nasal tip.
There are different types of nose surgery that can solve the wide nose. It is in consultation, once we see the patient, when we determine which is the best technique in his case and if we opt for an open surgery (for which it is necessary to make an incision in the columella, that is, at the base of the nose, between the nostrils) or closed (through the nostrils). This last option is less invasive but not always useful since with open surgery we have greater access to cartilage and a greater vision of the area, which allows us to work with greater precision.
Results after wide nose surgery
If all goes well, which should be normal, and you comply with the post-operative period and the cures recommended by the specialist, in a few weeks you should be able to enjoy a proportionate nose.
It is important that you take into account the times. Once we remove the dressings, you will see a change, but it will not be until a few weeks have passed when the inflammation finishes going down and the final result will be seen. Depending on your skin type or your response to healing, among other factors, this time span may be longer or shorter.
The most important thing of all is that if you are thinking of undergoing a wide-nose rhinoplasty in Valladolid, make sure that you put yourself in the hands of a professional, who offers you security and guarantees.
