Nose Implant Phuket
The human nose is one of the most defining features of the face and a difference of just a millimetre can dramatically alter the shape and size and thus the entire appearance of the nose. Some people are unhappy with the appearance of their noses and desire to make alterations to this part of their face and nose surgery in Phuket is the perfect answer to your cosmetic enhancement.

If you are a healthy individual over the age of 16 who is unhappy with the size and shape of your nose, then you may be the ideal candidate for nose surgery. If you are unhappy with irregularities or asymmetry affecting your nose, if the bridge is too large or too flat or if your nostrils are too pinched or too broad, then you are also a likely candidate for nose surgery in Phuket.
In the pre-operative consultation you will discuss your goals and expectations of the surgery and together you and the surgeon will decide what procedure to follow during the surgery.
The surgeon will either make an incision inside the nasal cavity to minimise scarring or an incision will be made at the base of the nose. Excess skin, bone and cartilage will be removed from the bridge and tip of the nose. If an adjustment needs to be made to the nostrils then an incision will be made where the nostril attaches to the cheek. The nostril will be repositioned and any excess cartilage and tissue will be trimmed away. Micro sutures will be used to close the incisions and a splint and bandage will be applied to the nose.
The patient will experience some discomfort during the early days, but after a week they should be able to return to work. After two weeks the healing process is well under way and within six weeks the patient can resume normal activities. The sutures should be ready to be removed after two weeks. The final results of the nose surgery will only be final after six months to a year later.
Scarring is an inherent part of any surgical procedure and unfortunately a way of altering the appearance of the nose without necessitating the use of surgical tools to make incisions has not yet been developed. The incisions are carefully placed to minimise the appearance of scarring, especially when placed in the nasal cavity. If the scars are at the base of the nose they will also be barely noticeable and after several months they will begin to fade until barely visible.
Any surgery has some inherent risks or side effects. Nose surgery may result in pain, swelling, bleeding, scarring, infection, slow wound healing and an asymmetrical appearance to the nose. Burst blood vessels may lead to red spots on the nose, damage to nerves may lead to temporary or permanent numbness.
The results of a nose surgery in Phuket are permanent and will last the patient the course of their lifetime.
