Augmentation rhinoplasty refers to the cosmetic surgery that reshapes the nose for physiological or cosmetic purposes. One of the things that makes your face unique is your nose, and if it is out of proportion to the other features, it can take away from the overall look of your face.

You may consider nose augmentation if you want to get a perkier, bigger nose using either autogenous tissues or implants, such as silicone perforation [ซิลิโคนทะลุ, which is the term in Thai]. But you can’t choose just any cosmetic surgeon for this procedure—it takes skill, knowledge, and experience.

What Is The Augmentation Rhinoplasty Procedure?

A rhinoplasty augmentation surgery is an intricate procedure that requires surgery under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision on the nose first. The incision can be made using one of two methods: either the more recent open technique, which also includes a small incision on the underside, or the more traditional closed technique, which makes all of the incisions inside the nostrils.

The surgeon then uses cartilage grafts from other body parts to improve the nasal structure and reshape the nose. The surgeon reconstructs the nose and then reshapes the skin tissues and underlying nasal structure. Lastly, a cast or splint is used to seal the incision.

What Are The Materials Used For Augmentation Rhinoplasty?

The rhinoplastic surgeon can augment the nose with a variety of materials. These consist of autologous implants (made from the patient’s tissue), allogenous materials (derived from cadavers), and alloplasts (synthetic implants). Each has its benefits and drawbacks.

Polytetrafluoroethylene, porous polyethylene, and silicone perforation are the most often utilized allograft materials. Alloplastic materials are infinitely supply-wise readily available, easily shaped into the desired shape, resistant to resorption and warping, and donor-site morbidity-free. These factors make alloplastic implants more preferred.

When Can You See The Results After The Treatment?

You will notice the difference right away after a successful augmentation rhinoplasty. However, it takes two to three weeks to notice the full effects, and the scars to fade.

The cost of an augmentation rhinoplasty varies according to the components needed and the training and experience of the surgeon. You should consider getting an augmentation rhinoplasty surgery if you are unhappy with the way your nose looks, are having trouble breathing, or have other problems with how your nose works. It is highly common since it is one of the most effective plastic surgery procedures currently available.
