Rhinoplasty in Mumbai
Rhinoplasty or a Nose job in Mumbai is a cosmetic surgery done to change your nose’s external structure (size, shape, and proportions). The nose is the central structure and a very prominent part of your face. There are many problems you may yourself notice about your nose, or in some cases, it may have been pointed out to you by your friends, relatives, or an ENT surgeon you visited for breathing issues. As the function of breathing and the external structure of the nose are interrelated. Dr. Ashish Ghughe, an acknowledged Rhinoplasty surgeon in Mumbai, may actually provide a solution by performing rhinoplasty in conjunction with a septoplasty (surgery to improve breathing by straightening the wall inside your nose).

GIST OF NOSE JOB PROCEDURE: BY OUR EMINENT SURGEON IN MUMBAI, INDIA
Rhinoplasty is generally done under general anesthesia as a daycare nose job in Mumbai. You may be discharged on the same day or the very next day of nose surgery, depending on the extent of the procedure done. It is a kind of plastic surgery done through a cut inside your nose or through an external small cut at the base of your nose, which extends inside your nostrils. The placement of the cut, internal or external, depends on the amount of correction required, as per the analysis done for nasal crosssection before rhinoplasty surgery by the surgeon.
Your surgeon can change the shape of your nose by altering the nasal bones or cartilage, or both. There are situations where changes need to be done by removing excess cartilage and bone or adding extra cartilage or implant. The extra cartilage, if needed, can be harvested from the septum within the nose itself or the ear cartilage, or the rib cartilage.
If there is a hump on your nose, the excess bone, as well as cartilage, can be trimmed to give a straighter appearance. In case of depression on your nose, a cartilage graft or implant can be placed to correct the deformity. There is a wide nostril or bulky nasal tip; excess tissues can be removed to give a sharper contour. Our Rhinoplasty surgeon in Mumbai integrates fine, as subtle changes in surgery can make a difference. After the changes have been made, the nasal skin is draped back on the bone and cartilage framework, and the cuts are stitched.
