Guide to Getting Rhinoplasty in Korea

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures after eye surgery in South Korea. Since the nose is at the center of the face, the image of the face can change drastically depending on the nose line and height, but it is important to maintain the natural look and overall balance of the face. Therefore, it is always recommended that each individual proceed with a customized surgery for their face. We've gathered some tips from Marble Plastic Surgery  Clinic in Korea, to help you begin your rhinoplasty surgery

Getting customised surgery

If a nose is raised too high with surgery, the patient may experience not only abnormalities in nose function but also lose the harmony with the rest of the face. This will result in an unnatural-looking nose or other health side effects. That's the reason why, every surgery has to be carried out to fit each case such as hooked or crooked nose bridge, and bulbous, pointed or short nose tip.

Rhinoplasty implants

Many people are also curious about the implants for nose surgery. There are natural implants from the body and artificial implants. Silicon is the most representative prosthesis, can be used in various nose shapes and comes in more than 50 designs. Sometimes, we get the question: How often do I need to replace the implant? The answer is simple: If there is no problem with it, you don't need to replace it. There are some who get a revision surgery due to inflammation or dissatisfaction with the results.

Natural implants from the body include:

  1. Ear cartilage: Ear cartilage is soft and elastic, so it is suitable for making a natural nose shape and has less chances of peeking through.
  2. Septal cartilage: Septal cartilage is used most often because it is suitable for creating a higher nose tip and nose column.
  3. Rib cartilage: Rib cartilage is used when there is a lack of septal cartilage and ear cartilage, and it is often used for revision surgeries.
  4. Deep fat tissue: Deep fat tissue is used when the skin on the nose is thin, which causes implants to peek through the skin.

Incision Methods

In addition to implant material selection, many people are worried about the incision method. Scars may be visible with open incision surgeries, but you don't have to worry too much because the scar usually fades after 3-4 months. It also has the advantage of greater visibility inside the nose for the surgeon, making it suitable for more complicated surgeries. On the other hand, with the non-open incision surgery, there is less concern about scarring, as the incision is inside the nostril, but it is also difficult for the surgeon to check the internal structures of the nose and should be done by an expert rhinoplasty surgeon.

How to look for a clinic in Korea

For a natural nose that fits the individual's facial features, surgery method, implant material, incision method, and many other factors are considered fully before surgery. In addition, it is important to ensure that anesthesiology and a systematic safety system are in place for safe surgery. When looking for a clinic, always make sure the plastic surgeons are experienced and are able to give you 1:1 consultations and customize the surgery to fit you.
