It comes to the fore after nose surgeries, health problems or aesthetic concerns. It
is possible to group health problems under two groups.
1. Structural disorders in the nose
Structural defects in the nose prevent the person from breathing properly and the nose
loses its ability to fulfill this function. These possible problems
significantly affect a person’s quality of life. These conditions may be
genetic or may occur due to narrowing or obstruction of the airways as a result
of previous trauma.
2. Deformities in the nose
Deformities in the nose can also be caused by genetic reasons, as well as by subsequent
bumps, falls or similar traumas, burns or various diseases. It is also
possible that deformities can cause psychological problems in the person. Rhinoplasty
surgeries provide the solution of these problems partially or completely.
Nose surgeries performed for aesthetic
Those who want to have a nose surgery (Rhinoplasty) for aesthetic reasons usually request
that the nose shapes they think are not suitable for their facial structures,
to be brought into the shape they want. In fact, although the patient’s
request is taken into account before the rhinoplasty operation, the physician’s
experience and medical knowledge should be the main factor in choosing the most
accurate shape. The physician will make the choice that will look
aesthetically beautiful and surgically correct, taking into account the
In general, those who want to be physically similar to popular people in the society refer
to this person by applying plastic surgery. Since the nose is one of the
most important points in facial aesthetics, these requests are also common in
nose surgeries. The attitude of the physician in these requests should be
to determine whether the patient really needs this aesthetic and to discourage
the patient from this operation if necessary. However, rhinoplasty is
performed if there is a situation that affects the person’s appearance
aesthetically or prevents him from feeling well.
After the measurements made, the nose shape is selected in proportions determined
according to the structure of the face. Although the nose is located in
the middle of the face, it is an organ that is expected not to attract
attention. When talking face to face, we communicate by looking at the
eyes and lips of the other person, we do not look at the nose. This
situation shows us that the nose should be in a way that it should not attract
attention. Therefore, the purpose of rhinoplasty will be to obtain a
natural looking result suitable for the facial structure.
Who Can Have Nose Aesthetics?
Rhinoplasty operations can be performed after the end of the person’s developmental age. The
nose must take its final shape and therefore the development must be completed. In
addition, the psychological aspect of this development is examined by expert
and experienced doctors.
What is Revision Rhinoplasty?
Performing a rhinoplasty operation for people who have previously undergone rhinoplasty
surgery after consulting with their physicians and approval of the physician in
cases where they are not satisfied with the result is called “revision
rhinoplasty”. Since the nose was intervened during previous
surgeries, revision surgeries are more difficult than the first nose surgeries.
What is Deviation (Curvature of the Nose)
Curvature or deviation of the nose can be seen in two ways. Only the type that concerns
the structures inside the nose is also seen. At the same time, there was a
type that affected the structures both inside and outside and caused the
appearance of curvature in the nose from the outside. Such curves can
obstruct the airway. However, nasal curvature does not always cause
breathing problems. Insufficient oxygen intake causes organs not to be fed
at the desired level. This situation, which also affects the sleep
pattern, causes the quality of life to deteriorate by preventing the person
from resting. It is possible to obtain a better breathing and aesthetic
appearance by correcting the curvatures present inside and outside, after the
examination and taking into account the patient’s complaint level.
What Should Be Considered Before
Some drug use restrictions are required before surgery. In addition, the rules
applied in all general anesthesia operations are valid in these surgeries. These
rules are conveyed to the patient by the specialist doctor and healthcare
How is Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplasty surgeries are performed under general anesthesia. It must be done in the
operating room in hospital conditions with appropriate equipment. Operations
are performed with closed or open technique. The operation takes between
After Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

cases, temporary bruising and swelling occur after nose surgery. However,
this situation disappears after a certain period of time. If tampons are
placed, the tampon is removed 2-4 days later. 6-8, where bone healing is
thought to occur partially. On days, the splints placed on the nose are
removed. If open rhinoplasty is performed, improvement is seen by leaving
a vague scar.
It is possible to see very slight leaks and slight blockages during the first few
days. In the first month, there may be swelling in the nose that may
negatively affect breathing due to edema due to surgery. This swelling is
removed with medications recommended by the doctor.
Post-operative start-up time varies according to the technique of the surgery performed, the
procedures performed, the recovery potential of the patient, the work done by
the patient and the environment in which he lives. If the patients who
work on a desk do not care about the appearance of the splints in the nose,
they can go to work on the fourth day. For very active people, it is
recommended to start work between 7-10 days.
Smoking negatively affects the healing process. It is necessary to pay attention
to some external factors in the treatment process. It should be protected
from sunlight for 3 months. Since there is no incision after closed
surgeries, there is no need to get extra protection against sunlight, but it
should not be forgotten; Sun protection is always important to prevent
premature aging of the skin. Certain times of swimming, running and
similar activities are limited according to the procedure and technique. It
is recommended to obtain additional information from the doctor about the use
of contact lenses and glasses.
