The nose is that the appendix located in the central part of the face gives this character and personality.
His front view, oblique, and profile, can appear with certain characteristics that are not pleasant or harmonious, or worse, that is a real problem for the person’s own body image.
The Cosmetic Surgery of the nose, called rhinoplasty, intends to return to this appendix harmony in relation to the rest of the face trying to correct the asymmetry (crooked nose), increased dorsum (hump), the length of the nose, the shape and tip position, etc. not forgetting that the nose performs an important first step in the inspiration of the air, by heating it and filtering it so that it reaches the lungs in the best conditions.
It is for all this, that when we consider a rhinoplasty, aesthetics and function must always be united and be studied within the globality of the face to which it belongs.
It is an intervention that we carry out under general anesthesia, in the Hospital and requires 1 day of admission, and at hospital discharge, the patient wears a splint on the nasal dorsum (plaster) and tamponade in the nostrils. The tamponade is removed between the 2nd and 4th day, and the splint a week.
The final result is measurable after months when the residual inflammation has subsided. The naturalness and satisfaction of the patient are evident from 7 days.
With the passage of time, it always happens that the skin of the eyelids loses elasticity, and if this is also favored by family characteristics, excess skin is more evident.
In addition, the eyeball is wrapped in grease that allows the exquisite movements of the gaze. This fat, which surrounds the entire orbit, can herniate and cause ugly bags on both eyelids.
In this way, with age and in some people more than others, an excess of skin and a herniation of fat appear so that usually on the upper eyelid, there is more excess skin and less herniation of fat and in the upper eyelid. Lower eyelid occurs backward, more excess fat than skin.
These particularities valued together with the position of the external canthus, the excess of muscle, the position of the eyebrow, the laxity of the lower eyelid, the quality of the skin, etc. they lead to the global and individualized surgical approach in each case.
The intervention is performed under local anesthesia plus sedation, in a hospital setting and on an outpatient basis. The corneal protector ensures the integrity of the eyeball during the entire procedure. After this, the patient returns home without occluding the eyes, with small strips of adhesive tape on the eyelids.
From the 3rd to the 7th day, the sutures are removed, and since then, it is possible to apply makeup to disguise the remains of the bruise and carry out a life of the relationship.
Perhaps it is one of the most grateful facial interventions. The naturalness, the rested, and youthful appearance bring optimism to the patient.
The shape of the ears is determined by a cartilaginous skeleton that provides consistency.
The detached ear is a deviation from normal that occurs from birth and can cause, already in the child, a significant impact on his relationship life.
The intervention is performed in a hospital setting under local anesthesia plus sedation on an outpatient basis, and the purpose is to restore the shape to the folds of the ear and bring it closer to the head.
By means of an incision behind the pinnae, the cartilage is remodeled and given the appropriate shape. The scar is hidden in the crease behind the ear.
The patient returns home after the intervention with a bulky bandage that is checked on the 3rd day and removed after a week.
The stitches fall off on their own, and the patient can lead a normal life a week, trying not to perform exercises that can cause trauma to the ears for 3-4 weeks.
An important point, also in Ear Surgery, is the reconstruction of the lobes torn by earrings or piercings.
This surgery is performed in the consultation itself under local anesthesia, after which the patient can be integrated into his usual activity.
