Thick Skin In Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery technique to enhance the form 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, known as revision rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult facial surgical operations. Although Rhinoplasty 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. Complexities can happen after the surgery.

Every surgery has chances of complexities. A 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.

Rhinoplasty on thick skin has its challenges because the upper skin makes it hard or sometimes even impossible, to show a good level of refinement. Although, many patients show a great deal of improvement after a revision rhinoplasty which is also known as the corrective nose job.

After the rhinoplasty surgery the skin which is wrapped around the structure and contour of the nose, allow the beautiful outcomes of surgery to be seen. But sometimes, a thick skin over the nose make the nose look not defined, covering the task that was done on the nose. Sometimes the nasal tip is also pulled down from the pressure of the thick skin.

Also, people with thick skin find that it takes more time for swelling to settle, especially after corrective rhinoplasty surgery. Apart from these many problems caused by thick skin, there is a minor benefit also which thick skin has. The benefit is that if you have any tiny imperfections in the nasal structure, it will not be clearly visible. This is because of the fact that thick skin can cover unwanted outlines.

All the surgeries create scar tissue, but revision rhinoplasty has a double disadvantage as it has a scar tissue under the skin, with the thick skin covering outside. The measure of the scar is greater in thick skin and also primary rhinoplasty develope tough tissues in patients with thick skin. This can create more difficulties in secondary procedures.

Also if there are any areas of weakness in the nose, thick skin can cause problems as because of its heaviness thick nasal skin can put pressure on the bones and cartilaginous tissues.  In primary rhinoplasty, formations of the nose are changed and can become less firm. Though trained revision surgeons will make sure to maintain as much anatomical support as possible, the nose has already become undetermined about future surgeries or operations.

While thick skin in nose exhibits vital challenges and barriers in revision surgery, an experienced and trained plastic surgeon can give you good result in revision rhinoplasty and display a major change from a poor primary rhinoplasty.

There are methods and techniques which increase the sharpness of the result and maintain the strength of the nasal structure, using which the doctors can make a good improvement in the appearance of your nose and face in the revision rhinoplasty surgery. If the surgery is performed by good specialists, patients can get great results. But the patient should expect realistic results and should understand the restrictions of both the surgery and their skin.

You develop a swelling after the surgery and for thick skinned patients, it will take more time for the swelling to reduce after the rhinoplasty. Revision surgery can be done only after at least 12 months of the primary surgery. Getting rid of swelling after second surgery may take longer time, seldom 18 months or more, so you have to be ready to wait for the final results of revision rhinoplasty.[/fusion_text][fusion_text][/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
