A Guide to Rhinoplasty Treatment

If you feel that the shape of your nose has a negative impact on your appearance and you would like to explore the potential of rhinoplasty, or a ‘nose job’ as it often referred to, the following information is designed to give you a better understanding of the treatment and how it is performed. There are several methods to reshape a person’s nose, which are as followed.

  • Open Rhinoplasty – The plastic surgeon makes an incision along the thin strip of flesh between the nostrils, which gives them access to the bone, tissue and cartilage, and this is the preferred method most of the time. The surgeon would show you many before and after images, which helps the patient to come to a decision regarding the outcome of the surgery. One of the best clinics can be found at http://www.surgery-thailand.com/, a state-of-the-art clinic with a very experienced plastic surgeon who has more than 35 years’ experience.
  • Closed Rhinoplasty – The treatment involves making incisions on the inner surfaces of the nostrils, which, of course, cannot be seen, and closed rhinoplasty is generally used when minor changes are required.
  • Filler Rhinoplasty – This procedure does not involve surgery, rather the surgeon injects medical grade silicone into the nasal area to make changes to the contours, and as you would expect, the cost would be considerably lower than surgery. The treatment would take no longer than 30 minutes and there is no downtime, and it is ideal if you would like to remove a small bump or change the contour of your nose.

Choosing a Clinic

If you would like to talk to a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, the best clinics are found in Bangkok, where the treatment is affordable and some of the best plastic surgeons in the world are based in this city. When looking at websites, make sure that the plastic surgeon is registered with the Medical Council of Thailand, which allows them to perform cosmetic plastic surgery.

The First Consultation

Once you have found the clinic’s website, you can book an appointment to see the plastic surgeon, when you can discuss your needs with the specialist, and the surgeon would make a treatment recommendation based on this meeting. Thai law does not allow the clinic to post before and after images on their website, however, when having a face-to-face meeting with the plastic surgeon you would be shown many before and after photos, which would help you come to decision regarding the changes to be made.

Once the date of the surgery has been set, you can follow the pre-op instructions and prepare for the treatment that will boost your self-esteem.
