Nose Tip Rhinoplasty
Op. Dr. Serif Yavuz
The nose is undoubtedly the most striking part of the face. In fact, we can say that the tip of our nose attracts a lot of attention and it is extremely important for our appearance between people. The number of people who are uncomfortable with the tip of their nose is very high. However, due to the development of technology and health facilities, dissatisfaction with appearance should not be seen as fate. At this point, we can say that nasal tip aesthetic operations have become to the fore especially in recent years.
Nasal tip aesthetic operation is called tip plasty in medicine. However, this surgery should not be confused with a Rhinoplasty operation. It is applied only to patients who are not satisfied with the tip of the nose.
What is nose tip aesthetics?
Rhinoplasty is an operation applied when there is a problem in the anatomical structure of the nose. However, it is not possible to say the same about nasal tip aesthetics. We have to explain that it is an operation where only the deformities at the tip of the nose are corrected. Among the deformities we mentioned there are problems such as: asymmetry, low nasal tip or nasal tip width. In other words, we should say that it is an operation performed depending on the needs of the patient. Regardless, no intervention is made to the bone, cartilage, skin and mucous areas of the nose. We should state that it is a preferred method for changing the nose tip angle and making it much clearer. The popularity of this operation with high successful result rates is increasing day by day.

What should be considered before nose tip aesthetic?
With nose tip aesthetics, all deformities and disproportionality in the tip of the nose are eliminated. Contrary to what is thought, there are too many problems at the tip of the nose. Annoying aesthetic problems such as inverted V deformity, the appearance of the nostrils more than normal, the problem of a low nasal tip, the nose being too asymmetrical, and the tip of the nose being disproportionately long with the face, all of before are eliminated with this surgery.
With the nose tip aesthetics, any desired changes can be made on the tip of the nose. Also, the asymmetry in the nose can be eliminated. Those who wish to do it, can make their nostrils smaller. As a result, a much more aesthetic nose structure occurs after the surgery. In addition, it is aimed to make the nose tip more functional. We can say that many problems such as narrowing, lowering, lifting, reducing, enlarging, widening the nose tip and changing the angle between the tip of the nose and the upper lip have been eliminated.
Patients who want to have an aesthetic operation for their nose tip should first go through a physical examination. As in other aesthetic operations, it is imperative that the patient knows what he/she wants from this operation. In addition, he/she is asked to fully explain his/her expectations to his/her doctor. In the next stage, structural deformities at the tip of the nose are detected. In addition, photos of the patient are taken from different angles. With these photographs, the most suitable nose tip model for the patient’s face is decided. The model determined by the doctor is shown to the patient without wasting time. According to patient’s opinion about nose model, the operation part is started. There are some things to be considered before surgery.
- As in any other aesthetic operations, blood thinners should be stopped before nasal (nose) tip aesthetics. In addition, the use of herbal teas with the same properties should be stopped at least one week in advance.
- If there is a medication the patient uses continuously, it must be shared with the doctor.
- Smoking is just one of the important details for the operation. The smoking patient should stop smoking at least one week before. Because, the healing process of the patient will be delayed due to smoking.
- Nasal tip aesthetics is usually performed under general anesthesia. At this point, the patient should stop eating and drinking at least six hours before surgery. On the other hand, the patient is requested to come to the surgery having a light breakfast before performing the operations with local anesthesia.

How to perform Nose Tip Rhinoplasty surgery ?
Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed with both open and closed techniques. At this point, we can say that the nasal tip aesthetics is applied only with closed technique, in this method, the incisions that been made on the tip of the nose are made from the inside. Therefore, we have to say that there will be no stitch marks left. Even if there is a trace, there will be a scar that cannot be seen from the outside. As we mentioned before, the bone and cartilage structure of the nose will not be touched in any way in the nose tip aesthetics. However, we should state that corrections will only be made for the tip of the nose.
Nasal tip aesthetics can be performed under local anesthesia if the patient is comfortable with this way. Therefore, no protective tape or splint will be required after the operation. However, silicone bands or splints are used where necessary. During the performance of the surgery, the problem at the tip of the nose is taken into consideration. After deducting the problem, the procedure is performed on cartilage and soft tissue. After the deformities at the tip of the nose are removed with the operation, the operation is concluded.
Nasal tip aesthetics is an operation that usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes. The stitches thrown into the nose during the operation are self-melting. In other words, the stitches will not need to be removed.
What should be consider after Nose Tip Rhinoplasty?
After the nose tip aesthetics, patients are usually discharged on the same day. In other words, as in other aesthetic operations, it is not necessary to keep the patient under observation at the hospital for a day. There is no swelling or bruising after the operation due to the intervention of only the cartilage and soft tissue. In addition, we must say that the recovery time is extremely short compared to Rhinoplasty. However, it is still necessary to keep the head up for the first few days after the surgery. Applying cold compresses will be only one of the situations that will reduce the healing process.
After the nose tip aesthetics, silicone splints and protective bands that have been attached to the nose will be removed one week after the operation. The patient must protect himself and perform the necessary care. In particular, nasal spray should be used to clean the inside of the nose. It is possible for people to continue their normal life one week after the operation if they are careful and cleaning issues are taken into consideration.
It is not possible to say that everything is smooth in the nose tip aesthetic process! Numbness may occur at the tip of the nose. In fact, this situation can last for 1-2 months. However, it is a problem that should not be taken too seriously. It is a problem that will eventually pass. In addition, we should state that the recovery process will be rapid as three months pass after the operation. However, those who still want to fully recover need to be patient in six months to a year.
It is wondered how long the patients will return to their normal lives after the operation. It is possible to start using contact lenses three days after the operation. However, one month should be waited to use light-rimmed glasses. As with other aesthetic operations, one should not rush to lift weights and do sports after this surgery. You can start doing light sports after two weeks. After two months, you can return to your old sports life.
As a result, nose tip aesthetics is a smooth process as we explained above.
