Plastic Surgery Nose Rhinoplasty

Enrico Robotti, Waldemar Brandao Penna
Rhinoplasty is universally considered as the most demanding procedure in facial plastic surgery. Secondary rhinoplasty is its crown jewel, even more complex, and likewise highly fascinating. The evolution of thought and practice in rhinoplasty in the last decades has been quick and steady, progressively acknowledging the importance of maintaining structure in primary rhinoplasty and rebuilding structure in secondary procedures. No longer is the paradigm to achieve a small, thin, and pointy nose, but rather a well-proportioned nose which looks natural, albeit elegant and breathing well...

The problem with the appearance of the nose or breath disturbance are relatively frequent in plastic surgery patients. The nose is distinctly aesthetic dominance of the face, therefore individual approach to nose operation is a necessary thing. The basic conditions for successful outcome of the operation are proper clinical examination and precise operating plan. There are several types of operations by type of defect: Nasal tip surgery (soft nose), complete rhinoplasty (total nose surgery inclusive corrections of osteotomies) and reconstructive nose surgery (septoplasty, saddle nose corrections, ethnical nose corrections)...

BACKGROUND: Nonsurgical rhinoplasty using injectable fillers improved skin quality and texture, cost-effectiveness, and quick recovery. The aim of this study was to provide a valid and customized protocol for injecting the nose with the aid of a nasal grid. METHODS: From January of 2015 to October of 2018, 150 consecutive patients entered the trial. The mean patient age was 36 years (range, 16 to 60 years). The patients were divided into two arms: primary nasal defects (no previous surgery, n = 109) and secondary nasal defects (previous surgery, n = 41)...

INTRODUCTION: Rhinoplasty is a common plastic surgery that potentially has some complications such as postoperative deformities and breathing problems. A humpy nose is among the main reasons for rhinoplasty. Nasal valve (the narrowest part of the nasal airway) collapse may be occurred after nasal hump removal. Spreader graft is essential after more than 3 mm nasal hump removal. But the value of this graft is unknown for patients with nasal hump smaller than 3 mm. Mattress suture is another technique for widening the nasal valve angle...

IMPORTANCE: Spreader grafts are commonly used for nasal valve stenosis. There is debate among practitioners regarding the optimal approach for spreader graft placement. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine whether an endonasal spreader graft placement leads to equivalent postoperative outcomes using a standardized nasal obstruction symptom score and whether there is a significant difference in operative time between the 2 approaches. DESIGN: A retrospective review of functional rhinoplasties by a single facial plastic surgeon over a 2-year period was conducted...

Rhinoplasty is one of the main facial plastic procedures performed worldwide. Ethnic patients today are mainly mixed-race patients. Diagnosis is based on anatomical findings and surgery should be planned based on patients' needs and what they define as beautiful. Different surgical techniques are presented where a structural approach to rhinoplasty is explained. Very little tissue is resected and support structures of the nose are strengthened with sutures and grafts. A gradual approach to the nasal tip is also presented progressing from simple predictable techniques to more complex unpredictable ones...

BACKGROUND: Rhinoplasty represents one of the most challenging and frequently performed procedures in plastic surgery and non-surgical rhinoplasty is rarely considered. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the Nasella Nose Former (NNF), a newly developed non-surgical rhinoplasty device, could improve objective and subjective results following surgical rhinoplasty and even correct the shape of the nose without any surgery at all. METHODOLOGY: In this prospective, monocentric, two-armed, non-blinded randomized, controlled clinical trial, a total of 43 participants were included...

BACKGROUND: Facial plastic surgeons and patients benefit from knowledge about how psychological aspects can influence the outcome of cosmetic surgery. The influence of preoperative self-consciousness of appearance and its effect on benefit after surgery in rhinoplasty patients has not been explored before in other studies. METHOD: A prospective study was conducted on patients undergoing (septo)rhinoplasty for a combination of cosmetic and functional problems. Before the operation subjects were asked to complete two questionnaires, the Derriford Appearance Scale (DAS59) to measure distress associated with self-consciousness of appearance and the Rhinoplasty Outcome Evaluation (ROE) to measure satisfaction with their nose...

BACKGROUNDS: It has not been established whether sex differences in pain perception are influenced by prenatal sex hormones. Digit ratio as an indicator of prenatal hormone exposure can be used as a simple measure of the influence of prenatal hormones on pain sensitivity or perception in adulthood. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine a correlation between the 2D:4D ratio and pain perception in the postoperative period after rhinoplasty. METHOD: A prospective cohort study of 100 patients (50 women of the mean age of 30...

Advances in computer modeling and simulation technologies have the potential to provide facial plastic surgeons with information and tools that can aid in patient-specific surgical planning for rhinoplasty. Finite element modeling and computational fluid dynamics are modeling technologies that have been applied to the nose to study structural biomechanics and nasal airflow. Combining these technologies with patient-specific imaging data and symptom measures has the potential to alter the future landscape of nasal surgery...

Facial plastic surgeons use a variety of reconstruction techniques to overcome challenges in restoring the function, structural integrity, and intricate nasal contour in nasal reconstruction. Local cutaneous flaps provide excellent skin texture, thickness, and color match in nasal reconstruction. They offer an excellent cosmetic appearance for small- to medium-sized defects and are preferentially utilized when feasible. This article aims to provide an updated review of local cutaneous flaps for nasal defect repair and describe the major principles related to flap selection...

BACKGROUND: Rhinoplasty is considered the most challenging chapter of plastic surgery due to its variability and the continuing evolution of surgical maneuvers. Worksheets became essential to unequivocally record surgical steps and to demonstrate their reciprocal effects/interactions during the follow-up period. After 1989, no other software was created to upgrade the Gunter Rhinoplasty Diagrams, the forefather and benchmark of the rhinoplasty "virtual" worksheet maker. METHODS: The authors built a new standard three-dimensional nasal framework model in STL format...
