Types of Rhinoplasty
- Augmentation Rhinoplasty – this operation helps to enhance a low nose bridge to make it appear more prominent in the frontal as well as the side profile. This can be achieved by using a silicone implant tailored to suit the patient. Own bone or cartilage can be used but will require additional surgery to harvest these tissues. This will leave the donor site scar. Another option is to use allografts from donors or other materials. At the same time, the low nose tip can also be enhanced by using the cartilage from the ear to provide the lifting of the nose tip.
- Reduction Rhinoplasty – this is for the high nose bone or prominent humps. The large bulbous tips or wide nostrils can also be reduced to suit the rest of the nose and other facial features.
- Corrective Rhinoplasty – This is to correct either congenital or acquired deformities. The nose can be deformed from violent trauma in a fight or accident. Sometimes cancers can also deform the nose. The correction or reconstruction will depend on the deformities and can be complex. The bony and soft tissues may be required to be rectified.
