About The Nostril Retainer

Apparatus Made of Soft Silicone That Prevents Nostril Deformation: Nostril Retainer

Nostril Retainer (Nose Shaping Apparatus)

Nostril retainer is made of soft silicone that does not harm the human body. It is used to correct or reconstruct the shape of the nose by placing it inward through the nostrils. The raw material of the device is "silicone gum". This product prevents the deformation or collaps of the nostrils after the nose aesthetic surgery, nasal valve operation and for cleft lip or palate surgery.

There are standard and long types, the long type can also be used by cutting.

This product is different from standard nasal snoring apparatus!

On the internet, there are various products that are placed in the nose, expand the nasal airway, nasal valve expander, plastic or hard silicone. These products are not nostril retaners and may not be suitable for prolonged use or regular insertion into the nose.

Nostril Retainer Indications

- Preoperative Use: "Nostril Retainer" can be applied in the correction of alar cartilage in the cleft lip nose.
- Post-operative Use: "Nostril Retainer" is used to shape, correct and restructure the nostrils after cleft lip / palate or rhinoplasty and nose enlargement surgeries.

Warning About Nostril Retainer Using

1- The size suitable for the patient's nose should be used. When deciding on the size of the device to be used, it would be most appropriate to benefit from the "Nose Retainer Mold Test Apparatus" offered separately from the device. Because it is not possible to try the actual product.
If the product is to be removed and reattached, it is removed from the nose and washed first and then sterilized using one of the sterilization methods.
2- After sterilization, the device is placed inside the nose with the two arms facing upwards.
3- The device can be removed from the nose by holding it from the outside middle part of the device.

Points To Be Considered During Use

a) Any dirt sticking to the device or remaining between the device and the inner surface of the nose may interfere with the configuration of the nose, so the device should be cleaned well.
b) The device may be deformed due to patient use. For this reason, the device should be replaced with a new one at least once a month.

Nostril Retainer Usage

1- The size suitable for the patient's nose should be used.
a) When deciding on the size of the device to be used, it would be best to use the "Nasal Retainer Trial Apparatus" offered separately from the device. Because there is no possibility to try the actual device.
b) Do not ever think of cutting one of the right or left arms of the device. Otherwise, the device may slide behind the nose or there may be a situation that prevents you from breathing.
2- If the device is to be removed and reattached, it should be removed from the nose and washed first and then sterilized using one of the sterilization methods shown below.
3- After sterilization, the two arms of the device are placed inside the nose, facing up.
4- The device can be removed from the nose by holding it from the outside middle part of the device.

While the Nostril Retainer is placed in the nose, it is appropriate to cover the skin with antibiotic beta cream or ointment.

Damages Resulting From Use

The product should not be bent during washing or sterilization. Otherwise, it may not sit on the nose as deformed and may fall.

Nostril Retainer Usage Time

The usage period is 30 days from the day the box is opened and used. The duration of Nostril Retainer usage can be changed according to your doctor's recommendation. I generally recommend it to be used for 30-90 days in patients presenting from different clinics due to severe nasal valve problem or nostril stenosis.

Nostril Retainer Cost

Nostril Retainer prices range from 50-70 Euros. Please refer to different websites to purchase. I also buy from various medical companies. I added it to give information.
