Candidates for rhinoplasty surgery are subjects of both sexes, including adolescents provided they are over 16 years of age and have completed development of the bones of the face. Patients with the following conditions are particularly indicated

  • Aquiline nose
  • Nose deviated to one side with associated breathing difficulty
  • Excessively large nose not in harmony with the rest of the face
  • Noses affected by post-traumatic changes

The preoperative examination with the medical staff at Studio Romano Fuhr is aimed at assessing the patient's general clinical situation and agreeing on the desired result in an absolutely informal but professional atmosphere.
In order to rule out pre-existing pathologies, patients are advised to perform the following examinations in addition to the routine examinations for all surgical procedures (blood count, coagulation balance and ECG)

  • eNT examination with possible rhinometry

Rhinoplasty surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and broadly speaking involves two techniques. The doctors at Studio Romano Fuhr perform both techniques, each time choosing the most suitable for the clinical case in question. The techniques can be divided into:

  • Closed rhinoplasty. No skin scars on the skin of the nose.
  • Open rhinoplasty. To achieve better exposure of the cartilaginous bone structure of the nose, a very small skin incision is made on the columella.

The purpose of the operation is to remove or reshape both the osteo-cartilaginous components in the nose in order to achieve harmonisation of both the shape and size of the nose in relation to the oval of the face. After the operation, the nose is protected by a thermoplastic shield or plaster for about 7 days.
The patient is admitted to Day Surgery and after about 6 hours of observation is discharged home.
The result of rhinoplasty is generally definitive and permanent; in some special cases, a touch-up may be required.

The postoperative period after rhinoplasty is generally quick and painless, characterised by slight bruising and oedema of the face for the first 10 days after the operation.
The patient resumes his normal life after about 7 days of rest from social life, during which he will be able to perform all primary functions.
The patient can accelerate the return to social life by helping himself with the use of light make-up from day 7 postoperatively. It is recommended not to expose oneself to the risk of trauma for at least 1 month.
