Preservation Rhinoplasty is the most up-to-date surgical method that the whole world focuses on in rhinoplasty. The more sensitive and protective the surgery performed on the nose, which is such a small sensitive organ; the result will be so perfect and beautiful. Which structures are protected with Preservation Rhinoplasty? Obviously, everything.
We start the protection with the surgical incision. Since we use the closed technique, all incisions pass through the nose. There is no incision on the skin, so the skin is protected. With the incisions made, the nasal back and anterior cartilage skeleton are revealed, and surgical vision is provided. In the meantime, ligaments and veins are protected and are not cut. Nose integrity and resistance remain intact.
The main philosophy of Preservation Rhinoplasty is the dorsum of the nose. Nasal dorsal anatomy has a unique shape. If it is broken, it is not possible to make it the same way again. Even if it can be rebuilt in shape, irregularities and protrusions will occur on it. Run your hand over the dorsal side of your nose and feel how smooth its surface is. Whether it is arched or curved, our own nasal dorsum has a delicate, smooth, flawless anatomical surface. The aim is not to disturb this anatomical structure while correcting the arch and curvatures. So how does this magic-sounding process actually work? Let’s briefly explain below.
Cartilage and bone anatomical structures of the nose are tightly adhered to each other by connective tissue and suspensory ligaments, which we call ligaments. Controlled loosening of these ligaments and connective tissues can allow the structures to shift among themselves. This is exactly what we do in Preservation Rhinoplasty. If we empty the lower part of the nasal hump through the nose and release the ligaments that restrict its descent, we can decline the hump and we can also redirect the curved nose tip to the right or left side without affecting the outer surface that provides the cosmetics and without disturbing the perfect outer surface anatomy. Just by changing its level and position.
Today, Preservation Rhinoplasty is exciting for every rhinoplasty surgeon and a good address for patients in terms of perfect and fast-healing noses.
