Thanks to the innovative RCMI® structured rhinoplasty technique devised by Dr. Alejandro Afanador®, usual pain or trauma of traditional rhinoplasty are no longer present. ‘Minimum Incision Closed Rhinoplasty’ RCMI® offers enormous advantages: it is painless, it does not generate external scars, it does not require nasal plugs, it does not generate purples, the inflammation is mild, the disability is short, only six days and, more importantly, The result is natural.
In that sense, RCMI is a different and enjoyable experience. Correct imperfections, guarantee symmetry, rejuvenate, make us attractive, raise self-esteem and harmonize the face without having to go through the traumatic experience of traditional rhinoplasty. That is why Dr. Alejandro Afanador® has been recognized among the best plastic nose surgeons in Colombia and Latin America.
In the case of a positive change and a prompt return to work, RCMI® rhinoplasty is the best choice. It is performed under general anesthesia with a surgical time of one to two hours and on the seventh day the patient can return to work.
Porous and sebaceous skin, acne sequelae, rhinophyma and genetic causes are responsible for the bulky nasal tip. Profiling and reducing the volume of the nasal tip is a procedure that is frequently requested. RCMI® closed aesthetic rhinoplasty achieves wonderful results. Of course, the level of thinning should be adjusted to natural measures that respect facial harmony.
Notorious tuning generates false appearance. Quantifying the degree of tuning is a priority. For this, a simulation of results is done using the three-dimensional Canfield3Dx ™ Simulator. RCMI® cosmetic rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia with a surgical time of one to two hours. The postoperative period is painless and the disability is short, only six days. On the seventh day it is possible to start work.
Raising the nasal tip is one of the most common procedures in rhinoplasty. The tip may be tilted or dropped because the nasal spine or columella is weak, due to a high implantation of nasal wings and, finally, due to lack of support and development of the lateral wing cartilages. Breathing is typical of the female nose and rectify it of the male.
Rectify: It is to raise the nasal tip to obtain a position of 90 degrees in relation to the upper lip.
Answer: It is to raise the nasal tip at an angle greater than 90 degrees relative to the upper lip.
Quantifying the level of elevation of the nasal tip is elementary. Doing it in excess is harmful. The Canfield 3Dx ™ Simulator preoperative three-dimensional simulation helps illustrating the indicated level of elevation for each nose. Natural rhinoplasty RCMI® for lifting or lifting the tip is performed under general anesthesia with a surgical time of one to two hours. The postoperative period is painless and the disability is only six days.
Laterorrinia means deviated or crooked nose. Nasal trauma and developmental and growth abnormalities are causes of septum deviation. Through a computed axial tomography (CAT), a radiological study, it is possible to locate and determine the severity of the deviation.
The RCMI® natural rhinoplasty technique developed by Dr. Alejandro Afanador® allows correction of deviations and laterorrines. However, some deviations require complementary procedures.
Occasionally the surgery of turrets, the removal of spurs, flanges and synechia, the use of expansion grafts and other reconstructive adjustments are necessary in the management of laterorrinia.
The bone, the cartilaginous structure and the nasal pyramid are wide and thick for mainly genetic-hereditary reasons. The RCMI® closed aesthetic rhinoplasty allows the nose to become thin reaching the ideal balance. However, those who claim an exaggerated refinement may end up with unsatisfactory and false-looking results.
Determining the correct degree of nose width is essential. For this, the three-dimensional simulation Canfield3Dx ™ Simulator is used. RCMI® closed cosmetic rhinoplasty for thinning the nose is performed under general anesthesia with a surgical time of one to two hours. The postoperative period is painless and the disability is short, six days. On the seventh day it is possible to start work.
Large nose or “Rhinomegaly.” In terms of facial harmony, the size and volume of the nose have a determining role. A well proportioned nose gives the face the attractive appearance that we so desire.
Natural rhinoplasty RCMI® allows to reduce the size of the nasal bones, refine the septum and generate the ideal balance. The scope and limitations of the intervention are illustrated using the modern three-dimensional Canfield3Dx ™ simulator.
Natural rhinoplasty RCMI® for reduction is performed under general anesthesia with a surgical time of one to two hours. The postoperative period is painless and the disability is short, only six days.
Since the nose is the most prominent structure of the face, it is exposed to trauma. Most originated by sports activities. Nasal trauma of less than seven hours of evolution is considered medical urgency and requires immediate intervention. The surgeon takes advantage that the inflammation is minimal and scarce to achieve a more accurate reduction or rectification of the bones.
The situation is different if the nose is swollen. Deferring the intervention days or weeks is recommended for a better cosmetic result. The nasal structure must be assessed radiologically with a tomography or CAT scan of the sinuses and even a 3D reconstruction. RCMI® closed rhinoplasty applies to the management of nasal trauma.
Intervening the nose for the second time is known as Secondary Rhinoplasty or revision surgery. The objective is to correct imperfections originated from previous surgeries, traumas and congenital anomalies.
The patient must remember that as skilled as a surgeon may be, the possibility of suffering an abnormal scarring exists. This can negatively affect the most delicate and neat surgical work. Nose touch-ups are small procedures and are intended to complement a result.
