What is rhinoplasty? 

The operations performed to give a more beautiful and aesthetic appearance to the nose are called rhinoplasty. The goal of rhinoplasty is to ensure that the nose is beautiful as well as in harmony with the face.


In the last 10 years, the number of "nose aesthetics" searches on Google has increased at least 4 times. This shows that society is in search of getting rid of the ailment in the nose. Aesthetic nose surgery is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries with positive results.


Aesthetic nose aesthetic operations; It can change the shape of the nasal hump or nasal tip, make your nose smaller or larger, shrink your nostrils, change the angle between the nasal bridge and the forehead, or between the tip of the nose and the lip. Besides, it removes problems such as polyps, sinusitis, nasal concha, and deviated septum, which cause problems in our breathing.


Who is canditate for rhinoplasty? 

The main condition for the need for rhinoplasty is to complain about the shape of the nose. In these people, the nose shape is often not beautiful from natal. Sometimes it deteriorated due to reasons such as accident, trauma, or tumor.


In some societies and families, the nose shape is not genetically beautiful. Although the concept of beauty is relative, the sense of beauty accepted by age and society makes people make this decision. As a result of the mixing of societies due to migrations, we encounter many different nose types. Therefore, the number of people who complain about their noses is quite high.


Adventitious problems

The most important reasons that later deteriorate the shape of the nose are accidents and traumas. Especially in childhood falls and bumps, the broken nose is not intervened promptly, so the development of the nose is worse than it should be. This occurs in the form of both shape and breathing dysfunction.


Examination before rhinoplasty surgery


Doctor-patient consultation is very important in the pre-operative examination. Everyone's nose is different in terms of bone, cartilage, and skin structures. Therefore, the outcome of the surgery will differ in each patient.


The specific skin, cartilage, and bone properties of the nose play a serious role in the result. While the result would be perfect in the nose to be shaped with thin skin bone and cartilage, it may not be possible to get the same result from a nose with thick and fatty nasal tip skin and weak cartilage.


Under the favor of the pre-operative simulation works performed by our plastic surgeons, personalized and zero error nose operations are performed.


How is performed rhinoplasty surgery?

Rhinoplasty does not have a sequential sequence of stages. Each operation is customized for the unique anatomy and goals of the patient. Depending on how complex the surgery is, the surgery may require local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. This decision will be made before the operation. 1 day of hospitalization is sufficient after the operation.



Local anesthesia with sedation is generally used in the outpatient service. This does not put the person asleep but makes them sleepy. During general anesthesia, the drug is taken by inhalation or through the IV line placed in a vein in the chest. General anesthesia affects the whole body and keeps the individual unconscious during the surgery.


During rhinoplasty, surgical intervention is performed through a small external incision in the nose or between the nostrils just below the nose. The bone and cartilage under the skin will be readjusted by the surgeon according to the targeted results.


The shape of the nasal bones or cartilage can be changed by the surgeon in various ways, depending on the nasal structure and the available material, as to how much it needs to be removed from the nasal tissue or how to make additions.


If the wall between the two holes of the nose, namely the septum, is bent or twisted, this can be corrected by the surgeon to correct breathing. Besides, this operation is different from rhinoplasty and it is called septoplasty.


Possible risks in rhinoplasty surgery

  • Red spots and sores caused by the rupture of nasal blood vessels
  • The need for revision surgery or a second surgery

To achieve the desired image, a second surgery can be planned, which is a very rare application.

A blow to the face may cause the need for revision surgery.


Post-operative/non-permanent problems

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Mild pain
  • Bruises in the eyes
  • Feeling lethargic
  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Long wound healing
  • Severe nosebleeds (in such a case, you should contact your doctor immediately)
  • Temporarily reduced sense of smell

After the surgery, there will be swelling on the face. For this reason, it is not the right approach to see the result immediately and to comment. It will take between 6 months and 1 year to see the correct result. It is very important to be patient and to trust your doctor.


The process of returning to routine life after rhinoplasty surgery 

Contrary to popular belief, rhinoplasty surgery is a very comfortable and painless surgery for the patient. 7 days after the operation, the plastic mold attached to the nose is removed, many patients can easily return to their daily routine after 10 days since the swelling on their faces disappears.


In large or thick nasal hump, swelling on the face and nose takes 3-4 weeks to subside. Although the patients do not notice that the nose fits perfectly and the edema is completely gone, it is a very long process. At the end of this process, the nose will get a thinner and more beautiful appearance with the reduction of edema.
