In our country, rhinoplasty is a very frequent surgical intervention that mainly solves aesthetic problems of the nose, such as the bony hump (bone that protrudes from the back of the nose) and the shape of the tip of the nose, seeking the facial harmony of the patient. “We use modern diagnostic methods such as three-dimensional tomography, flow rate measuring with reconstruction and/or minimally invasive endoscopy, for the correct and specific analysis of the anatomy and respiratory function”, highlights Dr. Enrique Chau, plastic surgeon at our clinic.
What is the difference between conventional rhinoplasty and 3D rhinoplasty?
The difference is that 3D rhinoplasty involves a clear vision of the nasal structure, using state-of-the-art equipment to treat the aesthetic and functional part, with a comprehensive management of the nasal anatomy and function to obtain a functional and aesthetic balance.
Benefits of 3D Rhinoplasty:
Rhinoplasty treatments focus, at the beginning of the surgery, on the correct release of the respiratory passage to obtain an adequate respiratory function, having modern devices such as radiofrequency, ultrasound and laser at hand, seeking to ensure correction and reduce the possibility of complications, such as bleeding or nasal deformity in the medium or long term.
To apply this new technique, where comprehensive evaluation continues to be the cornerstone for proper management, it is essential to have highly specialized professionals and state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosis and treatment, in order to obtain the best results.
