Side Effects On Plastic Nose Surgery?
Hello doctor, is it possible to remove the plastic on the nose from the results of plastic surgery? In my religion he said that if I die, I cannot carry foreign objects … can the plastic that was implanted in my nose be lifted? If possible, will the shape of my nose be flat or hollow? scarred because there is no plastic support?
Hello Rianda, thank you for asking.
Plastic surgery to repair or change the shape of the nose, called rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can be done based on medical indications or based on aesthetic indications. Medical indications for example in people with congenital abnormalities (congenital abnormalities), people with facial tumors, post-accident, and so on. Aesthetic indications are certainly based on the desire to get a more perfect nose shape.
Rhinoplasty consists of various methods, depending on the case. Not all rhinoplasty uses implants. Some rhinoplasty only aims to cut nasal cartilage, or straighten nasal cartilage. Partly, using implants made of silicone (not plastic) or implants in the form of cartilage in other body parts, such as ear cartilage. In severe cases, the nose bones may need to be replaced by bones in other parts of the body, such as the rib cage.
Depending on the beliefs of each individual, some religious leaders argue that during the operation carried out on the basis of medical indications, the use of implants or prosthesis does not violate religious rules. In addition, if rhinoplasty is only done by cutting or replacing cartilage with cartilage, then of course it is not a foreign object, because there is no installation of silicone implants.
Make sure first that your nose does have silicone implants in it. There is indeed a reverse rhinoplasty technique, which is to repair a nose that used to have had surgery for aesthetic indication. However, whether or not silicone implants can be removed and replaced with your own bones, you should consult with a plastic surgeon. In addition, maybe not all hospitals have these facilities. Therefore, you should consult with your doctor first, to ensure the condition of your nose.
That is my explanation. May be useful. Regards.
