One of the most requested procedures at our facility is rhinoplasty or nose surgery. Individuals who want to adjust the size and shape of their nose or those who have difficulty breathing may benefit from this procedure.
Your nose is the centerpiece of your face and the first thing people see when they look at you. This surgical procedure helps to improve the proportions of your nose to your face for a more harmonious appearance. You may want to reduce the size of your nose, remove the nose hum, straighten the bridge of the nose, or make minor changes to the angles of your nose and its various parts.
This surgery is also recommended for men and women wanting to make slight changes to their noses. Depending on your unique needs, we will use our advanced techniques and technologies to deliver a pleasing surgery experience.
Prior to your plastic or cosmetic surgery, you must schedule an appointment with our specialist so we can determine the most optimum surgery for your case. We will also provide you with a quote for our services accordingly.
- After surgery, it may take 10 to 12 months for you to see the final results of your rhinoplasty as your skin works to accommodate the new underlying bridge structure.
How Long Does Rhinoplasty Take in Medellín?
Rhinoplasty generally takes around 1 to 2 hours to complete. Surgeries are performed after the patient is administered general or local anesthesia. Our surgeries are headed by Dr. Juan David Londoño at the exclusive state-of-the-art operating rooms of the El Tesoro Medical Tower in Medellín.
There are two methods we employ for a rhinoplasty procedure. A closed rhinoplasty or an endonasal rhinoplasty will have incisions and sutures placed inside the nose. This technique is less invasive and leads to no visible scarring post-surgery. On the other hand, an open rhinoplasty or an external rhinoplasty will place incisions on the columella that connect the nasal tip to its base. Open surgery is more invasive but allows for more accurate reshaping and contouring.
After surgery, patients are to wear a cast or splint to let the nose tissue heal. It will be removed after 7-10 days. During your recovery, you will be given key guidelines to follow to help you achieve your desired results. Some important recommendations include avoiding makeup for at least 1 week, maintaining a healthy balanced diet, avoiding touching or blowing the nose, and resting as much as possible.
Post-surgery, protecting yourself from exposure to direct sunlight is also essential. You should further avoid any situation that may lead to trauma on the nose.
