What is the Advantage of 3D Telescopic Rhinoplasty?

Published on: September 8, 2015

Rhinoplasty or also called a ‘nose job’ is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic or plastic surgeries. The nose is the central feature on the face and can impact the entire appearance of an individual. Although one of the most popular surgeries in facial plastic surgery, it also is very complicated and can take time to heal. Advanced technology in the form of using 3D telescopic tools for rhinoplasty can help surgeons perform the surgery with greater precision and even improve healing time for the patient.

What is 3D Telescopic Rhinoplasty?

3D telescopic technology allows the plastic surgeon to have a clear, precise view of the inside of the nose when they are performing surgery. In the past, the surgeon had to use their own expertise and limited vision to navigate within the interior of the nose. 3D telescopic imaging is provided through a high definition telescope that is attached to a large monitor. This shows the interior of the nose in detail, in real time, as the surgery is performed.

Having a clear, precise view of the interior of the nose allows surgeons to avoid tissue, blood vessels and muscle that can increase trauma to the nose. It also helps the surgeon create the shape desired with more accurate precision. The end result can be a higher quality rhinoplasty for the patient, with quicker recovery and less inflammation.

If you are considering undergoing rhinoplasty, carefully research your choice of a plastic surgeon. Those that are experienced in using the 3D telescopic technology may be able to create a more definitive nose and avoid trauma to the nose, reducing the amount of complications and recovery after the surgery.
