Rhinoplastik oder Nasen Op sind sehr gefragt, da es sich um ein Organ mitten im Gesicht handelt. In manchen Ländern im Orient, wie in Iran ist es die meist durchgeführte ästhetische Operation. Dabei scheuen die Patienten weder Aufwand noch Kosten. Wichtig ist Prof. Shafighi ein ausgiebiges Gespräch mit detailierter Besprechung, was das Anliegen ist. Dabei wird eine Liste von Dingen aufgeschrieben, welche die Nasenform nach Ihrem Geschmack umformt. Jedoch sollte die Nase nicht operiert aussehen und natürlich wirken.

Rhinoplasty - nose surgery in Bern

"The ideal nose as we would like it to be straight, neither too small nor too big, not too wide, natural-looking and, in women, has an angle of 110 degrees between the edge of the lip and the bridge of the nose." That is the idea of ​​the ideal nose, but only in theory! In reality, the ideal nose does not exist, or rather it is very individual, emphasizes Prof. Shafighi, a nose surgeon in Bern.

Although we know that the perfect nose shape may not even exist, we can and should absolutely bother ourselves with our nose. This can be a problem in childhood, but it usually increases enormously with puberty and growing up. In most cases, your own nose is felt to be inappropriate, and the person concerned then focuses entirely on this problem. In such a situation it is very difficult for those affected to get out of the discrepancy with the image of their own nose that they once discovered, and so many nasal operations are performed nowadays. The number of rhinoplasty operations (also called nose surgery or nose job) has increased in recent years.

There are very different stories in people who are dissatisfied with their noses. Sometimes, for example, the nose is not pleasing due to a congenital malalignment. At other times, an accident is to blame for the change in shape of the nose. Or other causes change the appearance of the nose. Ultimately, this can lead to a long history of suffering until one decides to undertake a rhinoplasty.

As a nasal surgeon, Prof. Shafighi conducts many patient consultations in Bern and Zurich. It is particularly noticeable during the informative talks for a nose operation how much those affected can suffer from their nose shape. It is impressive and enjoyable how happy people, young and old, women and men, feel free of an overwhelming burden after a successful rhinoplasty. Whether Prof. Shafighi corrects a hump nose, hook nose, broad nose, long nose, crooked nose, bulbous nose tip or even just an unsightly nose tip - the results and satisfaction of his patients speak for themselves.

Anyone who suffers from the shape or size of their nose can definitely change something these days thanks to advanced nasal surgery in Switzerland with Prof. Shafighi in Bern and Zurich. Prof. Shafighi will be happy to explain to you in a personal consultation for a nose correction how the current possibilities of aesthetic plastic surgery can help gently and safely. Incidentally, in certain cases, which are examined by Prof. Shafighi, a rhinoplasty can also be performed without surgery with hyaluronic acid.

When performing a rhinoplasty, it is often necessary to improve the function of the nose - nasal breathing - should this be restricted. You should talk to Prof. Shafighi about this during the informative discussion. This restriction of nasal breathing can namely be caused by a deformed (deformed) nasal septum and / or by enlarged turbinates, or both, which Prof. Shafighi can then take into account in the nasal operation.

Advice for rhinoplasty in Bern & Zurich

The goal of the nose correction (rhinoplasty, nose surgery) is determined carefully and individually by Prof. Shafighi for each patient. After a detailed consultation in Bern, we will find the desired shape and size of the nose together. In this way there is ultimately a beautiful overall picture of the nose and face as a unit and so Prof. Shafighi tries to achieve a balance of the proportions in the face with precision work.

If additional details are changed, this can be implemented according to a professional assessment by Prof. Shafighi during the nose operation. We work with great care and analyze in detail what should be corrected in a preoperatively individualized plan. Any additional functional disorders that may be present, as can be seen in the case of nasal breathing difficulties, can also be addressed in a targeted manner. With a rhinoplasty, this can be significantly improved or even eliminated completely, so that at best a completely normal nasal breathing occurs. Functionality can be combined with aesthetics.

The nose operation is carried out by Dr. Shafighi performed routinely. The most important thing before the nose operation is certainly a detailed discussion with the patient and the corresponding good planning, taking into account your ideas, ideas and wishes. Here, the current situation is first shown using photos (including before and after photos that we keep here in our practice clinic) and sketches. Then the possible corrections can be shown. Accordingly, we can see together in advance what the end result should be and how the result can be realistic.

It should be emphasized that nowadays there are a number of correction options in nasal surgery, as this sub-area has developed significantly. The 3D simulation on the computer, for example, enables the representation of your currently not yet operated nose in the virtually operated state. In this way, you can follow what will happen afterwards on the screen in real time, conveniently and without the risk of a surprising result. Rotating, tilting, zooming - plan the various possible end results together with us like in front of a mirror. Your new desired nose is created virtually on the computer before the nose operation and problem points can also be discussed.

In the run-up to the nose surgery, we can use these tools and several detailed discussions to clarify what your nose will look like afterwards. We value transparency and honesty towards the patient so that the presentation is realistic and no false expectations can arise. With this quality assurance, we want our patients in Bern to be satisfied.

The cost of the rhinoplasty is covered by the health insurance company

The costs for a nose operation for medical reasons, i.e. mostly functional reasons, are often covered by the health insurance company after prior confirmation of costs. In addition, a nose operation that is carried out for purely aesthetic reasons has to be financially supported. Before the operation, we will clarify for you whether the costs can be covered if there is a chance according to Prof. Shafighi's assessment.

The nose operation / nose operation / rhinoplasty in Bern & Zurich

Nasal surgery can be done in a number of ways. The open access can be chosen so that you have an optimal overview during the operation. At the same time, this enables the surgeon to achieve the greatest possible symmetry because the structures are optimally visible. With the open approach of the rhinoplasty, a small, later practically invisible incision is made on the nasal bridge.

Depending on the individual form and function correction of the nose, something is changed by dissecting, cutting or chiseling cartilage, bones or soft tissues and the new nose is formed. If any, excess cartilage or bone can be removed with this method. If there are deformed / deformed areas, these can be straightened and any depressions and dents built up. Here, the body's own tissue such as cartilage is usually used as a transplant.

If there is a nasal obstruction, one speaks of a functional disorder. With Prof. Shafighi this can be measured with a modern rhinomanometry device. Often the fault is a sloping nasal septum, which can be done straight in the nasal surgery. At the same time, the often enlarged turbinates can be made smaller. “Less is often more”, this also applies to nose corrections, because the optimal result does not have to be 180 ° different from the starting position. "In rhinoplasty it is important to fix the blemish and not to change the whole shape of the nose". "The nose should match the face and the contours so that it creates a harmonious picture".

Prof. Shafighi takes this concept into account with his many years of extensive experience in aesthetic surgery.

Häufig gestellte Fragen zur Nasenkorrektur

Sind äusserlich Narben bei der der Nasenoperation zu sehen?

Bei Nasenkorrekturen werden die meisten Schnitte im Inneren der Nase angelegt. Narben sind daher äusserlich nicht zu sehen. Bei sorgfältiger Planung und Technik sind selbst diese Narben praktisch nicht zu sehen und nicht auffallend.
Davon unabhängig muss sich grundsätzlich jeder Patient darüber im Klaren sein, dass die individuelle Wundheilung und Narbenbildung auch bei optimaler OP-Technik letztlich nicht vorhersehbar sind. Beispielsweise können auch Narbenkontrakturen, überschießende dicke oder breite Narben oder sog. Keloide auftreten.

Ist eine Nasenkorrektur schmerzhaft?

Die allermeisten Patienten haben nach einer Nasenkorrektur geringe Schmerzen. Sie empfinden eher ein schwellungsbedingtes Spannungsgefühl, vergleichbar einem Sonnenbrand der Gesichtshaut. Allerdings werden Schmerzen von Mensch zu Mensch sehr unterschiedlich empfunden, und postoperative Schmerzen sind zudem vom Befund und der durchgeführten Operation abhängig. Sollten einmal nach der Nasenoperation Schmerzen auftreten, so sind diese durch Schmerzmedikamente beherrschbar.

Wann ist das Ergebnis nach der Nasenkorrektur sichtbar?

Das vorläufige Operationsergebnis ist nach ca. 6 Wochen beurteilbar, das endgültige Ergebnis ist erst 6 bis 12 Monate nach Nasenoperation ersichtlich.

Müssen nach einer Nasenkorrektur Tamponaden getragen werden?

In der Regel wird eine Nasentamponade gebraucht, wenn etwas in der Nase gemacht wird. Die Tamponade wird bereits nach 2-3 Tagen entfernt. Zur Stabilisierung des Nasengerüstes dient während einer Woche eine Schiene.

Ab welchem Lebensalter kann oder sollte man frühestens eine Nasenkorrektur durchführen?

Falls es sich um eine hauptsächlich ästhetische Operation handelt, sollte der Eingriff nicht vor dem 18. Lebensjahr erfolgen. Bei schweren funktionellen Problemen können jedoch bereits im Kindesalter Eingriffe durchgeführt werden.

Ab wann nach der Nasenoperation kann man wieder seine Brille tragen?

Je nach Methode können Patienten ihre Brille etwa zwei bis drei Wochen nach der Nasenkorrektur wieder aufsetzen.
