How is the Rhinoplasty surgery done?

The procedure of a rhinoplasty involves a surgery wherein the surgeon is required to make several incisions in order to get access to the cartilage and bones that would be supporting the nose. These incisions are made in the interior of the nose; this is specially to hide them post-surgery. As per the requirement certain cartilage or bone would be removed or a tissue might be added. This tissue is taken usually from another part of the body or synthetic filler will be used. Once the reshaping and rearranging of the cartilage and bone is done, the surgeon will drape the structure of the nose with tissue and skin.  To support the nose better and for healing, a splint will be placed outside the nose. Rhinoplasty can be done in the condition of local or general anesthesia and at times will require a night stay in the hospital.
