the principles of the operation
This operation consists of modifying the appearance of the nose according to a precise request from the patient.
This can be the tip of the nose, the bump on the back of the nose, the size of the nose or its possible deviation.
To understand Rhinoplasty you must first understand the anatomy of the nose.
POSITION OF THE SCARS
Nose surgery is usually performed without a visible scar (closed way: inside the nostril) but a complex nose tip may require a small 3 mm scar (open way). The traces of the operation are completely invisible or almost invisible.
The new computer techniques offer the patient the possibility of participating with the surgeon in the aesthetic choice thanks to “photo-morphing”.
The consultation therefore starts with a “photo” session which allows a treatment plan to be defined on the profile. The analysis of the result is also done by comparing the nose “before” the project and the nose “after”. The selected “project”, even if it has no contractual value of its own, allows the practitioner to be guided in the type of result desired.
The medical expertise of Dr Kestemont, aesthetic surgery of the face and neck in Nice, and new technologies guide the patient in a project that meets his or her requirements.
Men are also increasingly requesting nose reshaping surgery, generally after unsightly deviations linked to old traumas. In some cases, part of the costs incurred may be covered if it is a proven reconstructive surgery (CT scan, traces of the accident, etc…).
Very slight anomalies of the nose can be treated without surgery, with injectable and resorbable products that allow a “test” result to be obtained for several months. Remote corrections are sometimes useful at the end of the first postoperative year: these small touch-ups make it possible to compensate for possible healing problems and to obtain the expected result (5% of cases).
Dr Philippe Kestemont, face and neck surgeon in Nice offers these injections.
