Rhinoplasty is the name given to the procedures to make the nose that directly affects the facial expression, facially proportionate to the rest of the face, to remove nasal humb and unevenness or to make
necessary corrections on the tip. Rhinoplasty is also applicable to the cases that create problems in breathing and can improve breathing. Remember that a good rhinoplasty surgery restores both the appearance and the breathing.

Rhinoplasty In Pre-Operative Interview
In the interview, your complaints about your nose and your expectations after the operation are primarily evaluated.
Photos of your nose are taken from 8 different angles and the possible look after the operation is demonstrated to you on the computer.
The pre and post operation photos of the operated noses are demonstrated.
Breathing is checked by examining the intranasal structures in detail by the help of an endoscopic device. If there is a serious problem in breathing, a sinus film is taken and the problems such as polyp, sinusitis, nasal concha and deviated septum are fixed in detail. During operation, these problems (if any) are solved.
When you decide for the operation, my assistant plans the suitable day for the operation.
You should stop taking aspirin and its derivatives one week before the operation. (Do not stop taking the medication you permanently use without consulting your doctor)
It is recommended not to smoke for a while before and after the operation.
The fact that women menstruate on that date is not an obstacle for the operation.
Do not put on any makeup, do not use hair gel, wear comfortable clothes and leave your jewels at home before coming to the hospital for the operation.
Do not eat or drink anything 6 hours before the operation.
Be present at the hospital about one hour before the operation.
When you come to the room reserved for you, you may be given an oral drug if you want, it will relax you.
Is Used In Operation?
Generally, the closed rhinoplasty technique (no scar will form because the nose tip is not cut) is used.
The cartilages, bones and soft tissues forming the nasal structure are reshaped (where art meets science). Nasal ptosis, extremely upturned tips, angle between lip and nose tip, prominent or deficient area on the nose, curvatures in the nose, nose tips and nostrils are corrected and given an aesthetic appearance.
Deviated septum that prevents breathing in nose (nose middle wall curvature) and concha are corrected during operation.
After aesthetically shaping the nose, special tapes are adhered to and a plastic splint is placed in the external part of the nose for a period of 5-7 days.
No tampon is used.
Type Of Anesthesia
General anesthesia is applied.
Duration Of Operation
It changes between 2-3 hours depending on the problem of the nose.
The patient is discharged on the day of the operation or stays in the hospital for one night depending on the operation.
Hilotherapy mask is applied after the operation. Therefore, pain, swelling and bruise on the face occur rarely. Cooling with Hilotherapy mask is applied between the degrees 15-20 and so the patient is relaxed in the first hours.
It is important that your head is at a high position (i.e. sleeping on two pillows) when lying on the bed for one week after operation.
If a perforates silicone splint (enables breathing from the nose) has been used, it is removed 2-3 days after the operation and you can take a warm shower without heating up the plastic splint put on the nose.
You are given two different nose sprays to spray into your nose (one is used for about 1 week and the other for 4 weeks).
2 days after the operation is the period when the swelling and edema are at the highest level (depending on the structure of the person and the technique applied) and then, they rapidly disappear.
The plastic splint and tapes on the nose are removed 5 days after the operation. And a skin-color tape is put on your nose for one week more and your edema is ensured to completely go away.
About 7 days after the operation, you can go back to your work depending on your recovery period and the work you perform.
It is normal that your nose tip may have little numbness. It decreases within 2-3 months and recovers completely.
If necessary, you will be instructed on how to make a nasal massage depending on your nasal structure.
You can start using your contact lenses 3 days after, glasses with a light frame 1 month after and glasses with a heavy frame 3 months after the operation.
If the concha and deviates septum are intervened due to the difficulty in breathing, nasal blockage is normal after the operation, this will go away in time within about 2 months. It results from the swelling and scabs inside the nose.
2 weeks later you can start doing light exercises that do not force you and you can swim six weeks later.
The nose takes its final shape about 6 months-1 year later.
In the researches, it is seen that the patients have a positive development in human relations and their behaviors after the operation. You’ll notice and enjoy the new shape of your nose after the 3rd week of the operation.
