The role of nasal skin in cosmetic surgery
Basically, rhinoplasty is very much directly related to changes in the skeleton of the nose in order to create an ideal appearance. It will be very difficult for some patients to control and predict its effects on the outcome of surgery.
Perhaps the most important and only defining feature of the skin in rhinoplasty is its thickness. Medium-thick skin with a smooth and healthy surface has by far the best prognosis in rhinoplasty, and conversely skin with a maximum and minimum thickness (Thick and thin) have the least favorable results in cosmetic surgery, the tendency to cause scarring or the so-called benign or not, and the elasticity of the skin are two other important factors that can deeply have a profound effect on surgery.
The role of thin skin in rhinoplasty:
In people with very thin skin, the incisions tend to be healed with the least amount of scars and the swelling improves quickly and completely after surgery, but this type of skin is very weak in covering certain defects and irregularities of the underlying nasal skeleton. Defects in the lower skeleton can be seen from behind.
Another disadvantage of scaly skin is the tendency to shrink after surgery. The post-surgical scar process can cause stretch marks on the skin of any area, so the biggest problem in people with very thin skin is creating a smooth underlying skeleton. It is common that in cases where this is not possible, other techniques should be used, such as adding a coating, such as: dermis - fascia - or the person's own live perch or artificial sheets, which are the conditions for long stays alive, adequate blood supply and intact subcutaneous tissue.
In addition, the scaly skin is also prone to redness and spider mites in its superficial veins.
The role of thick skin in rhinoplasty:
It is a big problem in rhinoplasty. Unlike a nose with thin skin, the only good thing about thick skin is that it covers the possible major defects in its underlying skeleton.
The problems with very thick skin are such that many surgeons avoid this type of surgery as much as possible.
A major reason for such a decision is the large volume of this skin type. The voluminous skins mask their lower skeleton
