Rhinoplasty Techniques at the Swan Clinic

At the Swan Clinic, we provide a range of rhinoplasty techniques tailored for individual preferences. During your consultation, Dr. Reema Hadi will evaluate your nasal anatomy, understand your concerns, and suggest the most fitting procedure.

Common Rhinoplasty Techniques

  1. Open Rhinoplasty: Ideal for intricate cases, offering enhanced visibility of underlying structures with a small external incision on the columella.
  2. Closed Rhinoplasty: Suitable for less complex cases, with all incisions inside the nostrils and no visible external scars.
  3. Augmentation Rhinoplasty: For increasing nose size using cartilage grafts or synthetic implants.
  4. Reduction Rhinoplasty: Ideal for those with larger noses, this technique reduces size for better facial symmetry.
  5. Functional Rhinoplasty: Focused on correcting breathing issues like a deviated septum or nasal valve collapse.

Procedure Details

  1. Pre-Operative Consultation: A thorough discussion with Dr. Reema Hadi about your aspirations, medical history, and expectations.
  2. Computer Imaging: Digital simulations to visualize possible outcomes, keeping in mind actual results might differ.
  3. Anesthesia: Typically done under general anesthesia.
  4. Incisions: Depending on the need - open or closed rhinoplasty techniques are employed.
  5. Cartilage and Bone Reshaping: The nose's structure is meticulously reshaped to desired outcomes using trimming, rearrangement, or grafting.
  6. Septoplasty and Functional Improvements: Procedures like septoplasty improve airflow and address other structural issues.
