Rhinoplasty, which we know as Nose Aesthetics. Our nose is the organ that is located in the middle of our face and is the first thing that the person we meet pays attention to. The ratio of our nose to other structures on our face directly affects our appearance. In mathematical terms, faces close to the golden ratio are those with faces that we use as beautiful for women or handsome for men. All structures on the face have a certain proportion with each other. When this ratio is excessively distorted, there is a visual deterioration in terms of integrity.

Here, we will discuss rhinoplasty, in which the defects in the nasal structure can be corrected by surgical intervention rather than the defects of other structures. Rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty can be expressed as the process of correcting the abnormality in our general appearance by surgical operation by drawing the proportion of our nose to our face within the optimum limits.

For this reason, rhinoplasty, that is, rhinoplasty, has become one of the most frequently used aesthetic surgical procedures. If there is cartilage or bone curvature during the same operation, it can be corrected, thus ensuring that the patient has a healthy breathing and aesthetic nose.

What is Rhinoplasty?

This operation, also known as rhinoplasty, is the operation performed to breathe comfortably and have a beautiful appearance, which is the primary function of the nose due to the shape, curvature, bone fractures and related reasons that make breathing difficult with surgical interventions. Nose surgery rhinoplasty According to your Otorhinolaryngology Specialist Doctor, you need to breathe comfortably and comfortably inside your nose as much as your external beauty. Before making a choice that will have to give up your breathing comfort for the shape of your nose, consult a specialist.

A person may consider surgery if they are bothered by one or more of the following problems with the shape of their nose:

breathing problem
excessive snoring
Arched nose
curved nose
Nose tip sagging
long nose tip
Wide and wide nose tip
narrow nose
flattened nose tip
Sleep Apnea and Snoring

Nose surgery, which is one of the most frequently performed operations in ENT Surgery, is an operation to correct the appearance of the nose that upsets the person himself. However, during this procedure, the curvature, bone and cartilage that prevents the patient from breathing should also be corrected.

Importance of Nose in Facial Beauty


How should an ideal nose be?

It is expected that the nose will look symmetrical, proportional, in harmony with the rest of the face and look natural. A beautiful and attractive nose should be proportional. A nose that is proportional to our face and in itself is important for facial aesthetics.
The aim of rhinoplasty is to ensure that the patient has a symmetrical, natural-looking nose that functions in a healthy way. A beautiful nose can also reveal other features of the face. The ideal nose is actually a nose with aesthetics that will make the general appearance of the person beautiful.

How is rhinoplasty done?

Types of rhinoplasty
1. Open Rhinoplasty

In open rhinoplasty surgery, the incision is made in the area considered as the middle pole of the nose. From this incision, the skin of the nose and then the cartilage tissue are removed. Necessary procedures are performed according to nasal functions or nasal structure disorders; The cartilage tissue and skin are placed back on the middle pole of the nose, and the incision is closed and the operation is completed. Open rhinoplasty is the preferred surgical method as it provides a clear view of all structures and the best result during the operation.

2. Closed Rhinoplasty

In closed rhinoplasty, various incisions are made according to the operation to be performed on the nose, but the incisions are made through the nostril and are not visible from the outside. Swelling that develops after the surgery resolves faster in closed rhinoplasty surgery.

When the two techniques are compared, in open rhinoplasty, the surgeon has more control of the inside of the nose and therefore can make a clearer reshaping, but the healing process may be a little longer. A slight scar is likely to remain, albeit mild. The experience of the surgeon is very important in closed rhinoplasty. In this technique, the healing process is both more comfortable and shorter for the patient. In addition, since it is made from the nostrils, it does not leave any traces.

How long does rhinoplasty take?

Although general anesthesia is recommended for the comfort of the patient, this operation, which is performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the situation, takes an average of 2-3 hours.

Is nose surgery a painful procedure?

Most patients say that they do not feel as much pain as they expected after rhinoplasty. Drugs applied to the nose during surgery prevent post-operative pain.

Before Rhinoplasty

Who can have rhinoplasty?

Patients over the age of 18 are suitable for rhinoplasty. In aesthetic operations, the patient’s physical characteristics, age, expectations, anatomical structure and existing health problems should be carefully evaluated and the appropriate method should be selected for the patient. The operation should be specific to the patient.

Doctor Selection
Rhinoplasty operations should be performed by specialist surgeons who have a holistic approach to the face and can restore the functional structure of the nose.

Things to consider before surgery

Before the operation, the patient should inform the surgeon and anesthesiologist who will perform the plastic surgery, all the details about the current medications and general health status. Before the operation, he must inform his surgeon that he may have upper respiratory tract infections, fever, cough, sore throat, abdominal pain, flu, colds, herpes. Stop taking blood thinners, herbal teas, fish oil 1 week before the surgery and avoid special herbal cure applications. It is recommended to limit smoking 2-3 weeks before surgery, as smoking will adversely affect the healing process.

After Rhinoplasty
Points to be considered after the operation:
Supporting the head with a pillow for the first two nights after the surgery and sleeping in an upright position as much as possible will minimize your risk of developing edema.
Eating regularly and sleeping regularly helps speed up the healing process.
Avoid strenuous activities or activities that require bending over for at least three weeks.
Do not wear glasses for the first 4-6 weeks.
Avoid direct sunlight exposure of the nose area for at least 3 months. It is recommended to wear a high factor sunscreen or a protective hat for this purpose.
Avoid bathing in the sea, pool or sauna for the first 4-5 weeks.
Avoid alcohol and smoking, as they will adversely affect the healing of the sutures and inhibit tissue regeneration.
Avoid blowing your nose in the first weeks.

Rhinoplasty Price

Rhinoplasty prices vary according to the hospital where the surgery will be performed and the procedures to be performed. The duration of the operation is prolonged depending on the nature of the procedure to be performed.

There is a difference between the pricing applied to a patient who will only have nasal tip correction, and the pricing applied to a patient who will have both nasal aesthetics and respiratory functions corrected. Rhinoplasty prices may vary from doctor to doctor, as well as depending on the scope of the service you receive. If the statement of the cheapest rhinoplasty is wrong, the statement of the doctor who performs the best rhinoplasty is also wrong. Affordable price is whatever reasonable price you can pay. If you do a price research in Istanbul, you can see that the price scale is very wide. The point that I have emphasized from the beginning of my article is that a doctor you can trust financially and morally is the doctor who performs the cheapest surgery for you.


What are the risks of rhinoplasty?

There is no risk-free surgery, but it is important to be operated by a surgeon who knows these risks well and can take precautions against them.

The septum is the part of the nose that divides the nasal cavity in two, consists of cartilage at the front and bone at the back, covered with mucous. Septum deviation, that is, a physical disorder in which this cartilage or bone part in the midline of the nose bends to one side, is one of the causes of respiratory distress. This tilt can be forward or backward. The passageway on the side where this bending occurs narrows, causing difficulty in breathing.

Nasal and septum deviations can be operated simultaneously with rhinoplasty by ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat Head and Neck Surgeon) surgeons.
