The aim of this surgical procedure, called rhinoplasty, is to correct the deformity of the nose. It is possible to perform it together with bone curvature (deviation) surgery that prevents breathing in the nose. Rhinoplasty, commonly known as nose reduction, is also sometimes aimed at enlarging the nose.
WHO SHOULD I HAVE MY SURGERY? Should this surgery be performed by an ear, nose, throat specialist or plastic surgeon? Nose aesthetic surgery is an operation of the facial aesthetics (Facial Plastic) branch. Otorhinolaryngology specialists make up 60% of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery members. An otolaryngologist is a head and neck surgeon. The only branch that has nose surgery in its basic education is ENT specialization. Facial plastic surgery is rapidly spreading all over the world as a sub-branch of ENT specialty. An ENT specialist dealing with facial plastic surgery will ideally solve this question. However, you will still make the right decision about choosing your doctor.
PRE-SURGERY INTERVIEW Before meeting with your doctor, it will be useful to identify all your problems with your nose. Determining whether you are breathing, runny nose, postnasal drip and headache will make it possible to solve these problems with this surgery. Be sure to discuss your nose shape problems and what can and cannot be fixed with your doctor.
The possibility of your postoperative expectations will be expressed by your doctor. The way to get rid of post-operative disappointment is possible by making good use of this period. Behaving with your doctor in this surgery will relieve both you and your doctor. Collaboration will turn your entire surgery period into an enjoyable pursuit. Different expectations will bring you face to face with your doctor at the very beginning of the road. While very large defects can be corrected with a simple surgical procedure for you, a very small detail can sometimes only be corrected with a difficult surgery. The best should be remembered as the enemy of the good.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE SURGERY? The aim of rhinoplasty is to make the most suitable nose for your face. This surgical procedure will undoubtedly be performed with the existing fabric. In other words, the thickness of your skin, the thinness and form of the existing cartilages, your wound healing and previous nose surgeries determine the success rate. The goal is not to make a disinterested nose on your face. Therefore, making the most beautiful nose alone will not solve the problems. Making the most suitable nose for your face is considered the most successful result. While some parts of the nose are reduced, some parts are enlarged to provide a good looking nose on the face. It is important to keep the impression that the nostrils are not excessively visible, that the bony roof is not lost and that it has undergone surgery. In other words, THERE IS NO BEAUTIFUL NOSE,
THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL LOOKING NOSE!
SURGERY AND AFTER
Rhinoplasty surgeries are the most commonly performed aesthetic surgeries in the world.
The operation time does not exceed 1-1.5 hours. However, in special cases, this period may be longer.
Postoperative bruising and swelling are much less common than previous surgical techniques. You will wake up with a tampon that will stay in the nose for a day or a special sponge that will not prevent you from breathing, and a tiny plaster covering the outside of the nose.
Post-surgery is usually not as painful as feared. This period will pass quite easily with simple painkillers. After a day, the nose will be emptied and your breathing will return to normal.
It is recommended that you rest with your head slightly elevated or in a sitting position in a place that is not too hot. After rhinoplasty, every person you meet will make different comments to you. This is related to the fact that tastes are different, as well as your old nose is not well known.
