Nasal Tip Problems After Rhinoplasty

Nasal Tip Problems After Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery method to improve the form of the nose and restores the functions of the nose. Rhinoplasty fixes your nasal trauma which can be blunt, penetrating or blast. It also fixes respiratory impediment, congenital defect, or a failed primary rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult facial surgical operations. Although Rhinoplasty surgery does not demand difficult anatomical access, requisition of extreme physical energy, or considerably longer operating time which can cause surgeon exhaustion, the operation of rhinoplasty claims an absolute and meticulous knowledge of an art and science. Each case in the nose job has its own difficulties and needs a careful evaluation of the disfigurement preoperatively, a precise comprehension of the techniques possible for correction, an intended plan of action and continuity, and an accurate, inflexible performance of the surgical technique.

Every surgery has chances of complexities. An awareness of associated complexities and sequelae is very important to make the patient understand and help him in making an informed decision. it will also help in reducing the chances of such complications, in lessening the seriousness of an imminent complication, and in curing a complication once it has happened. Out of all the nose job types, the most difficult is correcting the nasal tip. This is because of the fact that the nose tip is made up of cartilaginous tissues and skin, and it does not have any bone to support it. Asymmetry is very common on the nasal tip, and the quantity of projection is essential. Unluckily, in the nasal tip area, several patients notice problems after their surgery, and it has become a common cause for attempting revision rhinoplasty.however the complications do not occur very frequently, but they can happen to any patient. Also, the majority of the complications can be fixed. let’s discuss the most common nasal tip problems after rhinoplasty surgery.

Problems After Rhinoplasty Surgery

  1. Over-Rotated Tip

When over-shortening and rotating of the nose happens while surgery, it pulls the nostril upwards create an appearance which looks like a snout, it is called as Over-Rotated Tip problem. it is also called as pig nose.

  1. Tip Asymmetry

Commonly, the nose tip has two sides which are somewhat similar, but sometimes during or after surgery, asymmetry can occur in between the two sides of the nasal tip which can make the nose look uneven.

  1. The “Pinocchio” Deformity

The “Pinocchio” Deformity is also called as an over-projected tip. the Pinocchio deformity befalls when the tissues in the tip of the nose are comparatively extra high and protruded in connection with the nasal bridge. This commonly happens in cases in which the nasal bridge has been lessened too much, which is done to correct a dorsal hump. And if the tip has not been adjusted again, it causes the nasal tip to look over-projected. A slanted nasal bridge can make the problem seem more critical.

  1. The “Pinched” Tip

The “Pinched” Tip is mostly the result of using older techniques. as the name suggests, in the pinched tip, the nasal tip is pinched together from the deformity of the tissues present in the nose. It happens when tissue is removed excessively from the tip of the nose. This problem is not very common nowadays because of the use of Modern “open” techniques which use an external cut. However, the deformation can still come up.

  1. The “Polly Beak” Deformity

The “Polly Beak” Deformity is another common nasal deformity occurred after the rhinoplasty.  When a nose gets a too high nasal tip after the surgery, which is also called as “supratip” (the region of transition between the nasal bridge and the tip of the nose), the Polly beak problem is used as the descriptive term. This is called so because the over-projection of this supratip generates a beaked look with the nasal tip being drooped. It may be the result of excessive remaining cartilage tissues in the area or not sufficient column for the nasal tip itself.

There are some other problems also that occur after the rhinoplasty apart from the above mentioned such as profile deformity, collapsed central nose, Irregular Bridge or a Poor Bridge to Tip Relationship, Deviated Nose or Persistent Deviation After rhinoplasty Surgery, etc.[/fusion_text][fusion_text][/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
