Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)

Rhinoplasty turkey is performed to create a well-made and more aesthetic appearance for the nose. Rhinoplasty is performed to create a better shaped nose and offers positive outcomes. Nose Job is, now, among most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. It is widely preferred due to above mentioned positive outcomes.

What is Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)?

Rhinoplasty implies optimizing the shape of nose – an organ with a major role from aesthetic perspective – with surgical procedures. Respiratory functions and sense of smell are protected during the procedure. Rhinoplasty is associated with the intended success not only for aesthetics but also from functional aspects. To breathe through your nose more easily after the surgery, following procedures should be done before the surgery:

  • Deviation of the septum should be corrected,
  • Measures are taken if there is nasal turbinate hypertrophy,
  • Certain problems, such as sinusitis, should be controlled.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

We use various surgical techniques for rhinoplasty. Type of surgical technique is decided according to a conversation with the patient and results of necessary examinations. Characteristics of the nasal tissue and patient’s expectations from the surgery affect how this surgical procedure is performed. Different treatment methods can be preoperatively performed in patients with sinusitis. Nasal turbinate hypertrophy provides us with preliminary information about the stages of the surgical procedure.

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia, unless there is a specific condition. Duration of the surgery is dictated by the techniques involved in our procedure. The procedure is completed in approximately 1.5 to 2.5 hours. The duration may be longer in people, who have history of nasal surgery.

If it is required to obtain cartilaginous graft from ribs, the surgery will take a longer time. Although duration of the surgery is long, the surgical technique is quite simple. Success of the surgical procedures is closely related to how properly you follow advices of the physician.

Who are good candidates of rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is performed to change shape of the nose and to correct existing deformities. The procedure is commonly called nose job. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure and it should be performed by a specialist physician.

  • Rhinoplasty is performed around the nose that is deformed secondary to an injury or trauma.
  • You may prefer this procedure to correct physical appearance in congenital deformities of the nose.
  • Nasal deformities that lead to difficulty in breathing should be corrected with appropriate surgeries.

An aesthetic appearance is created in the nose in the light of correct diagnosis and treatments.

Rhinoplasty can be performed in people with:

  • Aesthetic concerns,
  • Functional nasal disorders,
  • Difficulty in breathing.

What you should know before rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is performed to change shape of the nose. We can easily correct the existing deformities in and around the nose. You should stop consumption of following substances one month before rhinoplasty:

  • Fish oil and flaxseed,
  • Foods that contain Omega 3,
  • Ginseng and garlic,
  • Mixed herbal teas,
  • Milk and other foods that cause flatulence.

You need to take shower and wash your face with an antibacterial soap one day before the surgery.

What you should take care of after Rhinoplasty?

Wound dressings that are placed at the end of the surgery are left over the wound for up to seven days after the surgery. Your physician attaches a splint to your nose at this stage to protect and support the nose. You should not take off the splint for one week.

The patient should keep the head above the level of chest in order to minimize bleeding and swelling after the surgery. Resting in this position will minimize potential postoperative problems. Swollen nose may lead to obstruction of nasal cavity due to the splint attached after the surgery. You should rest at the position instructed by your physician in order to prevent this condition.

You may notice mild bleeding several days after the surgery. Bleeding is an expected condition that may persist for several days. A gauze pad should be secured beneath the nose in order to prevent the drainage. The drainage should have a quite tight structure. Your physician will inform you about the necessary measures before and after the surgery.

What are types of rhinoplasty?

There are several types of rhinoplasty. We decide the best technique according to needs of the patient. We can perform the surgery with open or close technique. Types of rhinoplasty are as follows:

  • Close rhinoplasty,
  • Open rhinoplasty,
  • Endoscopic surgery
  • Dynamic nasal surgery,
  • 3D surgery,
  • Surgeries without nasal packing.

One of these techniques is preferred according to overall condition of the patient. Physicians mostly prefer open or close rhinoplasty surgeries. We prefer close rhinoplasty method especially for surgical procedures performed on tip of the nose. We use open rhinoplasty technique for surgical procedures to be performed on cartilages. There is possibility of a mild scar in open rhinoplasty procedures.

In which cases should rhinoplasty be performed?

We perform nose job to:

  • Eliminate the appearance of aquiline (hook) nose,
  • To correct low nasal tip,
  • To correct the distance between nose and forehead,
  • To restore the nose to ideal width,
  • To correct the deformities secondary to nose fracture,
  • For augmentation or reduction of nose,
  • To eliminate asymmetry problem in nose.

Is Postoperative Pain Severe After Aesthetic Surgery? Will I experience bruising or swelling?
Most people believe that patients generally suffer diffuse pain after rhinoplasty. However, you usually witness that the patients do not suffer pain. Even if swelling or bruising can be seen, patients do not feel pain.

Your appearance on the mirror or the nasal packing may be disturbing for you after the procedure. All these problems disappear within approximately one week.

We recommend two different effective painkillers after rhinoplasty. Patients, who use medications regularly, generally do not experience any complaints. Use of medications helps alleviating the swellings.

When are patients discharged?
Recovery period varies according to type of surgery in rhinoplasty. Patients get out of the bed and start walking usually within 4 to 6 hours. Patients can eat following the 6-hour period, if there is no nausea or vomiting.

Patients are usually discharged within 1 day after the surgery. In special cases, your physician advises that you are observed at the hospital for 1 day. In this case, patients are monitored for one night and discharged on the next day. Nasal packing is placed into your nasal cavity after the aesthetic surgery, if required. The nasal packing is placed by our specialist physician and removed 1 to 2 days later. The nasal packing placed on the dorsum of nose is removed 1 week later.

Patients can resume routine daily life within approximately 10 days after rhinoplasty.

Is nasal packing inserted in rhinoplasty?
Nasal packing is frequently used in surgeries performed around the nose. The reason is the risk of nasal swelling secondary to accumulation of blood clots in the surgical site. Special techniques eliminated the necessity to use nasal packing. Nasal packing is not used due to the procedures performed by our specialist physician during surgery.

Is there an age limit for rhinoplasty?
There are various age limits in aesthetic surgeries. Age limit for rhinoplasty surgeries is generally 16-17 for women and 17-18 for men. You can always contact our specialist physician to make the best decision about rhinoplasty.
