Get Educated in Reduction Rhinoplasty
The Surgery: Reduction Rhinoplasty reduces the size of the framework of the nose over which the skin is draped. Nose Reduction surgery effectively narrows the width of the nose and when you have some difficulty breathing through your nose, a septoplasty maybe done at same time by adjusting the plate of the bone (nasal septum) which separates one half of your nose from the other. Alarplasty can also be done at the same time as reduction rhinoplasty wherein it reduces the width of the nasal base to narrow the span of the nostrils.
The Incision Site: Tiny incisions are made in the mucous membrane directly behind the nostrils, avoiding any visible scar. Through these incisions, the plastic surgeon can reduce nose bumps, correct unsightly nose tips or enlarge a saddle nose with bone or cartilage material. The skin naturally realigns to the new shape of nose.
Get Ready For The Big Day (Before, During & After)
24 hours after surgery: Your nose and eyes will be swollen and bruised, and your face may look puffy. You may experience varying degrees of swelling which will be soothed with cooling pads in the first 24 hours and switched to warm pads in the next 24 hours. Discomfort and pain will be controlled by oral medication. Sleep with a raised pillow or keep head elevated.
On Discharge Day: You will be given a written instruction on when to take your antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and analgesic pills and you’ll be advised on the date of your follow-up.
3 – 4 Days: Your follow-up visit and removal of stitches. You are expected to stay in Phuket for at least 5 – 7 days. You can resume daily activities provided you will wear sun glasses when outdoors. The nasal packs and splint will be removed at your first post operative day 3 and 6 respectively.
1 Week After: Bruises and swelling will gradually disappear in 7-10 days. The swelling and discoloration increase in the first few days and then will subside after the first week or so.
2 Weeks After: Kissing is not allowed and no hot bath until 14 days. Sports, sunbathing and heavy spectacle frames are not allowed for 6-8 weeks. The last swellings disappear no earlier than six months after the operation.
The Nose Reduction Surgery Package : THB
Full payment of the operating expenses must be paid in full before the operation. This package is applicable for elective, uncomplicated patients only.
The Long Term Result of Reduction Rhinoplasty
It is highly recommended for patients to stay in Phuket or nearby places for at least 10-14 days because reduction rhinoplasty surgery is an aesthetic reconstructive procedure rather than purely aesthetics. Since this is a complex operation requiring highly technical skills which have variable presentations in each patient with high chances of developing early post-operative complications, it would be beneficial when our surgeon could closely follow-up and monitor your recovery while you’re still in Phuket. There are no promises for the results as the outcome varies in each individual patient and it will take many months to see the result. In the event that the patient requires additional operations, there will be no doctor’s fee; however, the patient must pay for the operating room charges, anesthesia and hospital fee.
However like any surgical procedure, nose reduction surgery is also associated with certain number of risks and complications despite maximum care. The operative risks are not to be underestimated! In the first two weeks after the operation, breathing difficulties may be experienced. Our team takes every precaution possible to prevent and minimize the risks of surgery. However, much of the responsibility for risk avoidance rests with you as well.
