The Importance of Splints After A Rhinoplasty Procedure

Importance of Splints After a Rhinoplasty Surgery - Premier Plastic Surgery Arts Following any type of plastic surgery, it’s important to follow your doctor’s orders in terms of recovery and postoperative care. For those who have just undergone rhinoplasty surgery, the operation on the nose typically results in the patient wearing a splint to keep the nose protected during the healing process.

Splints may be made of metal, plastic, or silicone. They are used to protect the nasal dorsum (bridge of the nose) and support the nasal septum while the nose heals. By having the splints securely in place, it ensures that the bones that have been repositioned remain stable as they heal. The septal splints are typically worn for only the first few days following rhinoplasty surgery, but the dorsal splint is worn for anywhere from a week to 10 days.

Rarely, gauze packing may be used inside the nose for internal splinting. This is more typical in the repair of nasal trauma than in cosmetic or functional (for breathing) rhinoplasty.  Doing this helps prevent possible hematoma (collection of blood) formation. The internal packing compresses the mucous membranes and supports the nasal bones, providing the necessary support the tissue needs after an uncontrolled injury which may have broken the bones in many places. Patients typically find this method uncomfortable as it clogs the nose, and requires early removal due to an increased risk of infection when left for more than 48 hours.

No matter what type of splint we fit a patient with, we advise them not to remove or adjust it. Moving a splint will hinder the repositioned bones’ ability to heal correctly, and it can also expose the patient to the risk of bumping their newly reshaped nose on something. Having this happen could result in needing an additional surgery.

Breast Augmentation⁠
Before & Afters by yours truly! ⁠

Dr. Franckle focus on what works for your body and composition. Women who desire larger breasts may choose to have breast implants (breast augmentation plastic surgery). Breast implants can restore the volume lost following breast feeding or weight loss. Breast enlargement may also be helpful for women who have one breast that is noticeably smaller than the other. Breast enlargement plastic surgery is intended to give the patient larger and more shapely breasts. A more positive self image may also result from breast enlargement surgery.⁠

❗️FALSE❗️⁠

“Plastic surgery” and “cosmetic surgery” are not the same thing. Due to a misunderstanding, the public has misconceptions regarding the two specialties. Cosmetic surgery is surgery to improve one’s appearance. It is an elective course that focuses on beauty aesthetics. Cosmetic surgery refers to procedures that improve a person’s appearance. On the other hand, plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic procedures and reconstructive surgeries; such as burn treatments and correcting birth defects. Also, the training for plastic surgeons is much more rigorous than for cosmetic surgeons. Plastic surgeons have to go through years of extensive training in order to become board certified. We even have specifically separate centers and clinics for cosmetic surgery.⁠

Procedure Variations and Steps❗️❗️⁠

Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, your plastic surgeon should have a variety of recommendations. Patients should cease smoking, avoid taking any blood thinners, and increase water intake prior to surgery. When it comes to the day of your procedure, there are some important details you should be aware of. First and foremost, there’s anesthesia. This is crucial for your comfort during the procedure. Your surgery requires medications that can include intravenous sedation or general anesthesia depending on your preference. If you’re looking for further procedures to enhance your facelift, many patients consider undergoing various procedures in one session. These may include facial implants, soft tissue augmentation, resurfacing techniques, or wrinkle reduction with injection of fat or fillers.⁠

What Is Breast Implant Removal?⁠

Breast implant removal is sought by women who would like to return to their natural bust size or have had complications with their implants. During the procedure, Dr. Franckle will remove the implants and—when possible—use the same incisions from the initial breast augmentation to avoid additional scarring.⁠
