What are the different preparatory steps ?

The decision to have a nose correction surgery should not be based on a momentary mood or dissatisfaction.
Before rhinoplasty Tunisia, the surgeon examines the shape and structure of the nose. For this purpose, he also assesses the thickness of the skin and the firmness of the cartilage. He checks the function (obstruction to breathing) and appearance. A medical instrument, the endoscope allows a look inside the nose : because changes inside the nose such as mucosal tumors (polyps) and inflammation are often not visible from the outside.

Nevertheless, such findings have a great influence on the planning of the operation.

In order to be able to assess the result of rhinoplasty Tunisia later, the surgeon also takes photos of the face from different perspectives. Drawings and computer simulations are also sometimes used.

He will also ask you questions about your medical history, whether you are taking some medications or if you suffer from allergies...

Then, he will ask you to do blood analysis to be sure you can opt for this operation.

Rhinoplasty : how is it realized ?

The surgical techniques are based on the agreed goals that you have set with your surgeon during the preoperative consultation.
Typical changes that are performed during nose surgery (rhinoplasty) involve the removal of a nasal hump, the narrowing or reduction of the nose, the alteration of the angle between the nose and upper lip and the reshaping of the tip of the nose. Often there is also a curvature of the nasal septum which must be corrected at the same time to achieve a straight nose shape and good nasal function (septorhinoplasty).

Changes to the nasal framework can sometimes be made through incisions that are located inside the nose. However, it can often be useful to make an additional short incision at the nasal bridge. The approach is chosen depending on the particular nasal deformity and the corrective required measures. The open technique offers advantages over the closed technique for complex corrections to the nasal framework or fine corrections to the tip of the nose.

The optimal overview of the open technique allows very controlled changes to cartilage, bone and soft tissues of the nose. Cartilage grafts can be inserted and fixed under direct vision, and sutures can be placed.

Using the above-mentioned incisions, rhinoplasty is used to make changes to the cartilage and bone of the nose, for example, to straighten the nose, remove a nasal hump, narrow the nose, or raise and refine the tip of the nose. Furthermore, a nasal bridge that is too low can be built up with cartilage tissue from the nasal septum, from the ear or, more rarely, from the ribs. The skin of the nose and soft tissues then adapt to the newly formed nasal framework and can also be modified. For example, an excessively thick soft tissue mantle can be selectively thinned out via an open approach. To narrow the base of the nose and reduce the size of the nostrils, skin and soft tissue at the base of the nostrils are removed in a wedge shape. The incisions are placed so that they are hidden in the natural skin folds between the nostril and cheek.

Rhinoplasty Tunisia : aftercare and recovery

Following a nose correction, physical rest is particularly important, because the body needs time to regenerate. For six weeks, patients should sleep with the upper body elevated and in a supine position, if possible. Elevated positioning reduces swelling after surgery. Tamponades are only necessary for a few hours. For extensive surgery, a splint is applied. After about ten days, this can be removed and patients are once again able to socialize and work.

However, special care must be taken after rhinoplasty Tunisia.

Sports : these are prohibited for at least six weeks, as impacts on the nose for example during ball sports that can have a negative effect on the healing process.

How long does swelling last after rhinoplasty ?

Swelling may persist for several weeks after surgery, but should gradually diminish over time. It's essential to note that each case is unique, and the speed at which swelling disappears depends on several factors, such as the complexity of the operation, the initial structure of your nose, the thickness of your skin, and what was achieved during rhinoplasty.

How long does it take to look normal after rhinoplasty ?

The time it takes for your nose to return to a normal appearance after rhinoplasty depends on a number of factors. Every rhinoplasty is unique, as some people undergo their first procedure while others are on their first or second revision. The structure of your nose, the thickness of your skin and the specific modifications performed all contribute to the complexity of the operation and the length of recovery time.

Can i touch my nose after rhinoplasty ?

It's natural to want to touch, push or manipulate your nose to feel the changes after rhinoplasty. However, it's imperative to resist this temptation. Touching your nose during the healing process can misalign nasal tissue, cause injury and potentially compromise rhinoplasty results. Protecting the operated area is essential, so avoid any contact that could exert pressure or cause injury.

How to sleep comfortably after rhinoplasty ?

Sleep plays a crucial role in the recovery process. It's important to find an appropriate sleeping position that doesn't affect the operated area. Surgeons recommend sleeping at an angle of 35 to 40 degrees, ensuring that the head and nose are above heart level. You can also opt to sleep on a reclining chair for the first week. Using a few pillows to support your head can be beneficial.

Avoid sleeping on your side, as this can cause asymmetrical bruising and swelling, in addition to the risk of accidentally hitting your nose. It's advisable to avoid sleeping on your stomach for at least six weeks, as this position puts your nose at greater risk.

If you're used to sharing your bed with your partner, it's advisable to sleep alone for a while. Avoid any contact that could lead to pain and potentially affect the final result of your rhinoplasty. Surgeons stress the importance of avoiding caffeine to promote optimal rest. You can opt for a decaffeinated herbal tea before bedtime.

When can i take a shower after rhinoplasty ?

Good hygiene is essential for recovery after rhinoplasty. However, it is essential to follow preoperative and postoperative instructions rigorously. During the first week after rhinoplasty, it's crucial that the dressing, adhesive tape and plaster don't get wet.

At the end of this first week, before visiting your surgeon to remove the splint, you can take a bath and wash your face and head, but avoid using shampoo. You can even pour water over the adhesives to soften them, making them easier to remove.

For the first few weeks, it's best to avoid hot water. Also, after taking a bath, be sure to remove the adhesives and reapply them according to the instructions provided. For the first two months after the operation, it is necessary to visit your surgeon twice a week to replace the adhesives.
