Nose surgery is one of the most challenging procedures in plastic surgery of the head and neck. Knowing the different methods and their use, due to the specific problems of each individual, every nose surgery can only lead to achieving optimum results: good functionality of the nose, which ensures normal breathing, the harmony of the whole face and the satisfaction of treated individuals.
Today's approach to rhinoplasty differs significantly from previous procedures - today, the nose is not considered as a separate object. The intention is shaping it in relation to the whole face, which leads to an optimal relationship with the existing structures of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, chin and forehead. Given all of the above, cosmetic surgery targets not to give a "new face" to the patient, but to transform the nose and make it fit into normal relations with the rest of the face. There are a wide range of problems that can be successfully addressed during nose surgery, and some of them include: the coat of arms on the dorsum; wrong, too long or too short nose; broad nasal pyramid; nasal tip that is irregular, too wide or extremely narrow nose; asymmetric or too wide nostrils etc.
Surgery can also shape the bone and cartilage structure of the nose. What we should always bear in mind is that the nose structure partly determines the initial shape and dimensions which can be changed during the surgery. Too radical reduction of the nasal structure is not recommended because it can weaken the fundamental support of the nose. An important effect on the result of the operation is the strength and thickness of the skin and soft tissue cover, which also limits the extent to which the nose can be changed. Although the skin cover is not changed after the surgery, skin still must cover pre-formed cartilage, because excessive reduction of cartilage and bone may prove inadequate adaptation of the skin. This can be a problem with people who has very thick and oily skin.
