Rhino offers its clients all of the medical information available in the modern world. We adhere to the principle of using the best techniques with a goal of achieving the best results. Health, beauty and comfort, we guarantee all of the three.
We know that it is a decisive step to undergo a plastic surgery. Aware of our clients’ eagerness to learn every detail regarding the procedure we give comprehensive insights into their expectations.
Those having undergone rhinoplasty are aware of the discomfort caused by gauze pads. Besides blocking the nasal passages and increasing the risk of infection the dressings also cause adhesion-related problems. Other possible complications include accumulation of blood between tissues which may require additional medical intervention and may prolong the recovery process.
In addition, these commonly used dressings increase the swelling while all patients dream of speedy recovery and return to daily routine. Though beauty requires sacrifice, there is a way to minimize painful interventions. It’s already four years we have saved our patients from the discomfort caused by the gauze pads by inserting special silicone tubes instead. Advantages of silicone tubes include appropriate contact with nasal mucus preventing adhesions and ensuring separate recovery of each nasal wall.
Silicone tubes may be removed in 5-7 days after the surgery. Eliminating the risk of infection they allow for nasal breathing and lavage. Silicone tubes are removed very easily contributing to the speedy recovery of wounds. No nasal septum perforation cases have ever occurred in our professional experience, the problem quite common in case of disbalanced contact between pads and septum.
BESIDES, silicone acts as an anti-inflammatory speeding up the healing process. It also boosts oxygen saturation and cools the tissue. The scar tissue, if there is any, is always thinner and more delicate. Nasal pads are not applied in the standard method even in case of insufficient silicone, for example in case of nasal bleeding. In this case we apply the sea sponge which swells after being drenched and obtains the appropriate size to proportionally influence the nasal walls and stop the bleeding.
As we know our skin performs gland and respiratory functions. In case of being hermetically covered, the fat produced may widen the area between the skin and the bandage causing the latter to fall off. The plaster may ALSO cause such skin problems as irritation, blemishes, etc.
This affects both the post–surgical recovery and the quality of life. To avoid this we use only hypoallergenic porous paper plasters through which the fat produced can easily pass, ensuring problem-free recovery EVEN for patients suffering from severe allergic reactions.
Another modern technique applied in our clinic is the porous thermoplastic bandage used for fixing the external bones (instead of the gypsum plaster) which changes its elasticity at boiling point, becoming more amorphous and capable of taking the appropriate shape.
Gypsum plaster hardens like a stone, causing pain and leaving scars. Moreover, it falls off when drenched or even dampened. Thermoplastic bandage never falls off, it doesn’t require additional stretching, as it is quite elastic.The bandage is capable of stretching as much as the tissue swells without damaging the skin whilst preventing any bone mobility. Starting the third day, after the swelling starts to go away, the bandage tightens ensuring the appropriate size.

We don’t adhere to the selection principle when the best materials are offered to acquaintances only. At Rhino you will be offered exclusively the best medication.
