A Guide to Rhinoplasty

Also known as a ‘nose job’, rhinoplasty is the art of reshaping the nose, which could be a major or minor alteration, and there are two main forms of rhinoplasty; open and closed. Open rhinoplasty involves making small incisions in the soft skin found between the nostrils, while the closed method makes incisions inside the nostrils, which are not visible. Even if you wish to make very slight alterations, this is possible with the latest techniques.

Open or Closed?

The type of surgery used would very much depend on the result you are looking for, and this is something the surgeon would discuss with you during the initial meeting, and with the technique of natural nose augmentation (called เสริมจมูกธรรมชาติ in Thai), there are no artificial substances like silicone used. Fat can be grafted from the hips of thighs, then injected into specific locations to change the contours of the nose, and there is no risk of rejection, as the tissue comes from the patient.

Initial Examination

The first time you meet the plastic surgeon is very important; this allows the surgeon to find out exactly what you wish to alter regarding your nose, plus he can make you fully aware of the limitations and the risks (there are risks with all forms of surgery). If the specialist thinks he can achieve your goal, he would explain the procedure, and if you are in agreement, a timeline would be set for the treatment.

3D Technology

This allows the surgeon to build an exact profile of your face and nose, using a state-of-the-art computer program, and with your input, the perfect alterations can be agreed upon. Most Bangkok clinics utilise 3D computer technology, which really does help the patient to make final adjustments.

Finding the Best Clinic

If you happen to live in Thailand, Bangkok has the very best plastic surgeons, and with a Google search, you can browse a list of clinic websites, and they will answer any queries you might have. Once you have chosen a suitable clinic, simply make an appointment to meet the plastic surgeon, when you can discuss your requirements and the expert can make recommendations on how best to achieve the desired results.

When compared to the US or Europe, Bangkok plastic surgery is very affordable and once you have had the initial consultation, a schedule can beset for the treatment and you can enjoy more self-confidence that comes from having a perfectly shaped nose.
