Both nasal passages are separated by a septum (nasal), which has a bony cartilaginous structure. Deformed areas in the nasal septum can be straightened upon request and need. This intervention is not necessarily in the field of cosmetic surgery, but the term "Illness", if breathing difficulties occur due to the deformation. At the same time the nose can be modeled of course new, if the patient so wishes and the doctor considers it important or necessary.
Prior to surgery, EKG and coagulation parameters should be carried. Diabetics, obese and smokers carry an increased risk (risk of embolism and thrombosis -).
The health insurance fund is a medical necessity for a nasal septum surgery, bears the costs of the operation; in most cases following disease reasons can make all the difference for this: difficulty breathing, sinus inflammation, etc.
For the removal of a hump for a saddle or for the straightening of Crooked Bridge nose, a photography creates advance by the surgeon. By modern computer technology, the possible new nose shape is then discussed with the doctor. Nevertheless limits the surgeon, as a rhinoplasty can result in a completely changed look.
- During these operations the nose skin is lifted from the bone and cartilage framework
- the surgery itself can be made mostly through the nose or mouth, to the surgeon introduces a light with a camera in the surgical field. The transmission takes place on a screen
- reduction of corpora cavernosa small flexible tubes for approx. 6-8 are fixed days in the nose
- are still uneven, they are compensated by filling material (possibly cartilage from the septum of the nose or ear cartilage)
- the operation from the outside must be cut carefully at the root of the nose, in the approach of the nostril or best in the eyebrows
- then is usually a cast or a stable plastic (thermoplastic rail (waterproof) for approx. 10 days attached. A Tamponade is inserted inside the nose, to prevent bleeding. The cast can be changed after detumescence
- If a nose reduction is desired, tip of the nose must be lifted, because it settles naturally again in the course of life
