Let’s talk a little about rhinoplasty or nose jobs in Iran
Rhinoplasty is one of the five surgeries that are performed on the applicant more than other surgeries. During treatment, a plastic surgeon corrects the condition of the cartilage and bone in the nose to create the patient’s desired appearance for their nose.
For men and women who are dissatisfied with the size and appearance of their noses, rhinoplasty can be a safe, effective, and time-tested method for resolving a patient’s appearance problems.
When an experienced surgeon performs this surgery, the results can improve the balance of facial components and help patients regain confidence. Rhinoplasty surgery can also be used to correct structural defects such as respiratory problems.
Rhinoplasty techniques used in Iran
Regardless of the type of rhinoplasty required by a patient, the physician uses one or two of the following basic techniques to correct the problem:
Closed rhinoplasty: This surgical technique is usually superior to other methods because all the incisions are made inside the nose, and there is no need to make incisions in the outer area of the nose. In this case, even though the gaps are hidden, the surgeon can access most parts of the nose and correct many of its aesthetic and structural problems.
Open rhinoplasty: Open rhinoplasty gives the surgeon better access to the cartilage and bone of the nose, but with this method, some scars remain on the patient’s nose. In this case, by creating a gap at the end of the middle septum of the nose (the area between the two nasal cavities), the doctor can remove the scalp of the nose and correct its cartilage. After healing from the gap created, minimal symptoms remain on the skin, often hidden under the nasal area.
Both open and closed rhinoplasty techniques can have very satisfactory results for the patient. In this regard, the doctor can determine the appropriate method for each patient according to the typical appearance of the nose and the goals of the surgery.
How can Coronavirus affect rhinoplasty surgery?
Although Coronavirus has been prevalent in the world for more than a year, the Iranian Society of Cosmetic Surgeons has not stopped providing training and updating the knowledge of colleagues, especially concerning this dangerous virus.
This association has tried to hold one or two conference sessions per month in webinars and has also held the annual congress of the Iranian Society of Cosmetic Surgeons.
At the beginning of the virus outbreak, there was an initial concern about this because the virus lives at the end of the nasal airway, which means a higher risk of transmission to surgeons in rhinoplasty.
The virus is mainly transmitted through the air, and any process that causes airborne particles can damage and contaminate medical personnel.
To ensure that no potential hazards arise, the Iranian government has set up private medical institutes and public hospitals to perform rhinoplasty using appropriate equipment, strict strictures and to implement particular health protocols. It should be noted that in Coronavirus pandemic conditions, cosmetic surgeries have not been stopped, and the necessary measures have been taken to help patients using methods that are not harmful and do not pose a risk of Coronavirus transmission.
