Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

The operations performed to give a more aesthetic appearance by shaping the nasal bone are called rhinoplasty. It is one of the most preferred aesthetic operations in the world. The reason for the preference for rhinoplasty surgery may be conditions that negatively affect the quality of life (shortness of breath, sleep apnea) due to congenital deformities, or the individual's desire to have a more aesthetic, symmetrical nose. Rhinoplasty surgery can also be performed by correcting the intranasal septum in order to help the individual's nostrils open equally.

Before & After Operation

A pre-examination is performed by the doctor and the patient is questioned whether he has a disease that will negatively affect the operation. The doctor learns the patient's complaints and the visual changes that he wants to make on the nose during the examination. Considering the patient's nose and face structure, the final state of the nose is determined after the exchange of ideas between the doctor and the patient. In order to design the patient's dream nose, photographs of the patient's nose area can be taken and the final state of the nose can be modeled after rhinoplasty in digital environment. Relevant laboratory tests are performed to check the patient's suitability for the operation. Local or general anesthesia can be applied to the patient as prescribed by the doctor. The patient should complete the pre-operative preparations as informed by the specialist doctor. Blood thinner etc. drug use should be terminated at least 1 week before surgery. It is recommended that the patient not stand up for at least 4 hours after the operation. It is recommended that the patient spend the night of the operation in the hospital. Swelling and bruises around the nose and eyes after the operation are quite normal. Apart from this, it is recommended to be fed with liquid foods as much as possible for the first few days. Apart from this, pain that can increase the activity of the nose, etc. The use of spices in food is not recommended for the first few weeks. Apart from this, the patient should avoid excessive facial movements and facial expressions (laughter, strong chewing, etc.) after the operation. The patient should avoid movements that may cause physical pressure in the nose area.

Subtreatments & Techniques

Open Rhinoplasty:

The biggest advantage of open rhinoplasty is that the doctor can perform the operation more safely and precisely, with a wider viewing angle. It is performed by making a small incision between the nostrils of the patient's nose. Recovery time is longer than closed rhinoplasty.

Closed Rhinoplasty:

It is mostly preferred in small-scale interventions. Since the operation is performed by opening an incision from the inside of the nose, there is no visible scar from the outside and the recovery time is shorter than in open rhinoplasty.

Recovery Process

In order for the operation to be successful, it is very important for the patient to protect the operated nose area with the drugs prescribed by the doctor and as recommended by the doctor. In order for the desired nose shape to fit successfully, the patient should avoid situations such as wearing glasses and lying on the side that may put pressure on the nose area. In about 1 month, most of the bruises and swellings (more than 70%) that occur after the surgery disappear. It may take 6 to 12 months for the expected nose shape to be fully achieved.
