How to place the ribbons on the nose after removing the post rhinoplasty splint – Dr. Chinski

@Yoana Marlen Style tells us how she placed the ribbons on her nose to finish maximizing the result of her Esthetic Rhinoplasty. After 10 days of nose surgery, patients have their splint and stitches removed. From this moment the nose is in the open air. Likewise, it is always advisable to keep the nose taped for the first few days, placing an adhesive tape (taping) of half an inch or smaller in such a way as to tighten the skin against the bone and cartilage structures and in this way favor the reduction of inflammation. @Yoana Marlen Style was operated by Drs. Chinski of Esthetic Rhinoplasty and followed all postoperative indications to the letter, in such a way as to favor the best result obtained in the operating room and in the shortest possible time. True to his style, @Yoana Marlen Style shows us step by step how the ribbons are placed following the instructions of Drs. Chinski and with his personal touch of sympathy and creativity to get us to internalize the process. As a general guide we can say that the placement of tapes in the postoperative period works fundamentally to keep the nose tight, preventing it from becoming inflamed. Being that the tape is not stretchable, then the nose when it seeks to swell cannot do it because the tapes do not allow it. Postoperative inflammation is greater at night, which is why most patients report that when they wake up in the morning they feel that their nose is much more swollen than at other times of the day. With this foundation, we suggest using the tapes for a month after removing the splint, mostly at night. The tapes placed on the skin generate a seborrheic dermatitis reaction caused mainly by the glue of the tapes. That is why it is important to let the skin ventilate for a few hours and clean it with cloths with astringent solutions, ethyl alcohol and / or neutral soap. Additionally, cleaning prior to placement helps the tape stick more to the skin and last longer without coming off. Each surgeon has their own ways of placing the tapes as a result of their experience in the office. In our personal case (Dr. Hernan Chinski and Dr. Luis Chinski) we used the tape placement method that is explained in the video. The tape we mostly use is a half inch Micropore. Neither the brand nor the color is relevant. What is important is that the narrower the tape, the more pressure we can exert on the skin. The site that most often requires pressure is that of the supra-tip, that is, just above the tip. Patients with thick skin are in themselves the ones who most express postoperative inflammation and that is why they are most in need of treatment with tapes. ——— More info on our website Subscribe to our YouTube channel: Follow us on Facebook: Follow us on Instagram:.
