What is Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty)?

Rhinoplasty (Nose Aesthetics), Since the face is the most prominent part of the person at first glance, correcting the deformations in this area is aesthetically and psychologically important. Thanks to the development of techniques in medicine and the application of innovative methods, much simpler nose operations can be performed.

Some people have very large noses and are quite happy with their appearance. However, some people may prefer a different nose shape despite having a healthy nose structure. As a result, you may prefer rhinoplasty operations because of health problems or personal preferences.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty (nose aesthetics) is a procedure performed to correct the appearance of the nose that makes the person unhappy due to congenital reasons or subsequent deformations in the nose. It is a very low-risk surgery that is frequently preferred in the world.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgeries. Regardless of the reasons for aesthetic surgery, the main purpose of rhinoplasty is to ensure the best functioning of the nasal airway at the end of the surgery.

The first of the reasons for rhinoplasty is the emergence of congenital or later deformation-related respiratory problems in the nose. Deformation causing respiratory problems can be a visible disorder. However, there are cases where the disorder is not visible from the outside. The second reason is that the person is uncomfortable with the appearance of his nose.

In rhinoplasty, a surgeon who is an expert in this field is very important because the slightest intervention has very important results. It takes 6 to 12 months to achieve full results. This time varies according to the size of the surgery, the structure of the tissues or the severity of the problem.

Patients who will undergo rhinoplasty surgery mostly undergo the operation under general anesthesia. In simple rhinoplasty operations, local anesthesia may be appropriate according to the surgeon's preference. The operation takes an average of 2 hours. However, rhinoplasty usually takes one day with pre-operative preparations and post-operative applications. There are basically two different rhinoplasty techniques.

In the first of these, open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes a small incision to increase the angle of view. The most important advantage of the open technique is that the viewing angle is more extensive. However, the healing process is somewhat longer. In addition, post-operative problems such as edema and bruising are also possible.

In another technique, which is closed rhinoplasty, the surgeon adjusts the cut so that it remains inside the nostrils. The doctor has a narrow field of vision, but the recovery time is shorter and there are no scars after the operation. The closed rhinoplasty technique is suitable for correcting smaller deformities. Not applicable in relatively large operations.

Before Rhinoplasty Surgery

Pre-operative interview is an important stage of rhinoplasty. For a good cooperation throughout the process, the doctor and the patient must understand and know each other very well. In this context, our health consultants will help you with their comprehensive knowledge.

Both parties should be open and honest with each other during the examination. The rhinoplasty candidate should explain in detail what changes he or she wants in the nose with surgery. On the other hand, the doctor will also have recommendations and determinations, and the patient should evaluate them. Rhinoplasty not only changes the appearance of the nose, but also significantly improves the perception of the face.

In the aesthetic examination, the skin and the cartilage-bone structures of the nose are put on the table. The doctor reminds of deformations that the patient does not notice or ignores. In the meantime, you should indicate whether you have any diseases, previous surgeries, any medications you use, or allergies.

Nose pictures taken from the front, right and left sides after the examination are useful for the procedure. Then, with a special program, the doctor draws the new nose shape in 3D. Next, the doctor compares these designs to which drawing looks better for balance and harmony.

Also, these drawings will help the patient get used to their new nose. Pictures do not guarantee the results of the surgery. Still, they determine what we will aim for in the operation. However, we provide 90% similarity to the shape we draw.

You should not eat or drink anything for 8 hours before the surgery. It will be relaxing for you to take a warm shower and lie down before the surgery and think positively about the results.

We remove the silicone splints 3-4 days after the surgery. It takes 5-10 seconds to remove the splints. After the silicone splints are removed, there will be edema in the nose for several weeks.

One day after the surgery, you can take a warm shower without wetting the plastic splint inside the nose. There are no restrictions on eating and drinking.To prevent infection, you should avoid swimming in the pool for a month and protect yourself from the sun's rays for two months.
