Nasal aesthetics (rhinoplasty) is to determine the aesthetic appropriateness by looking at the ratio of the nose to the face, and to ensure the healthy performance of the breathing function of the nose in terms of health. Rhinoplasty operations, thinning the tip of the nose, lifting the nose up, lowering the upturned nose, removing the part called the arch in the middle of the nose, reducing the big nose, curvature in the middle cartilage of the nose (septum) Applications are made for existing problems such as cartilage curvatures in the nose (deviation), reduction of the nasal wings. It is very important to consult a doctor with the patient before the operation. It is necessary to state whether the patient’s expectations are fully conveyed and whether their expectations after the operation are realistic and how much can be realized. Bone structure in the nose, cartilage structure, skin thickness, thick nose, oily nose etc. As the nasal structures of people are different, the noses after the operations will be different for each patient. During the pre-operative consultation examination, if he/she has regularly used medications and if he/she uses aspirin or blood thinners, he/she must definitely indicate them.
The purpose of rhinoplasty is to provide the proportion of the face and to obtain a nose with a good breathing function. The most successful and beautiful results in rhinoplasty operations are the noses proportional to the face that are not understood by other people.
For nasal surgery, it is necessary to wait for the development of bone and cartilage structures. Completion of its formation differs according to men and women. It can be performed from the age of 18 for boys and 16 for girls, but in exceptional cases such as patients with respiratory distress, it may not be necessary to wait for age. Rhinoplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The duration of the operation varies according to the type of nose operations. The patient can stay in the hospital late after the operation, or he / she can be discharged from the hospital with the approval of the doctor after the operation. Since the operation process is performed by making incisions in the nostrils, there is no visible scar. When the nose wings are reduced, 4-5 mm incisions are made from the folds of the nose wings. These incisions do not attract attention because they are from the folds where they are made. After the operation, a mold (thermoplastic) is applied on the nose and it stays on the nose for 6 – 7 days. No tampon is placed after rhinoplasty (nose operation). It is normal to see bruises and swelling under the eyes. These complaints disappear within an average of 5-6 days.
For patients, it passes comfortably and painlessly after surgery. They can start work after 4-5 days of rest. It is necessary to protect very well, especially in the first 3 months after the nose operation, and not to take a blow. Sunglasses or heavy-framed glasses should not be used for the first time. It takes about a year for the nose to take its final shape.
