Nose aesthetic surgeries is becoming more popular every day due to the development of technological opportunities, especially the social media effect, and many other factors. A person’s face; it is the most striking part of his/her body. Deformities on the face could create a lot of problems in both psychologically and aesthetically. That’s one of many reasons why nose aesthetic surgeries become very important also due to the increase in the number of people who do not want to see deformities as their fate. As well as the field of medicine is improving day after day.

Another name for nose aesthetic surgery is Rhinoplasty. It meets the aesthetic expectations of people and also solves their breathing problems if they have any. Or if the person who is breathing in a healthy way however is not satisfied with their nose can have the surgery in order to reach the dream nose shape they dreamed about.  


What is Rhinoplasty surgery? Why it is done?

Comparing with other aesthetic surgeries we can say that nose aesthetic surgeries are the most preferred ones to do. Nose aesthetic surgeries are applied in order to eliminate deformities that congenital, occurring or manifested due to trauma. In additional, nose aesthetic surgeries are performed to solve the respiratory disorder problems. Regardless of the reason for nose aesthetics surgeries, it is aimed that the respiratory tract in the nose will fulfill its duty fully after the operation. In addition, it is aimed to change the shape of a part of the nose, especially to reshape the nose with the eliminate deformities.

Nose Aesthetic surgery (Rhinoplasty): Although it is a highly preferred operation, however it is not possible for everyone to benefit from this surgery. First of all, it should be checked whether the person’s nasal tissue is suitable for aesthetic surgery or not. Therefore, a physical examination performed by the surgeon before the surgery is a must. In the end of the day Rhinoplasty (Nose aesthetic surgery) is an extremely complicated operation. In order to have the best result, it has to be performed by a surgeon who has done this operation many times and is expert in the field should be sought. In addition, it is necessary to wait between 6 and 12 months for the final result. If the expected result cannot be obtained after the operation, a second operation is applied.

There are two different reasons for performing nose aesthetic surgery (Rhinoplasty). This process is applied in order to solve the problems related to breathing which could be caused due to birth or a deformity that occurs later. In addition, we should explain that this operation is performed because the person is uncomfortable with the appearance of his/her nose. Rhinoplasty operation is required due to a lot of reasons such as curvature in the nasal bone part, deformities in the cartilage structure, and having an excessively large nose.

If Rhinoplasty is performed due to aesthetic concerns, it should be stated before the operation depending on patients’ personal preferences. Although there are people who are satisfied with the appearance of their nose even though their nose is larger than normal, there are also those who think to reduce their nose with a plastic surgery even though they have a normal nose. As a result, we should state that the nose aesthetic operation (Rhinoplasty), which become popular especially in the 2010s, was performed for both health and aesthetic reasons.

How to perform Rhinoplasty surgery?

Contrary to what is supposed to be, nose aesthetics is a type of operation performed with very simple touches. Therefore, it is not an issue that would require those who are considering an operation to be afraid. Since it is performed under general anesthesia, it is not possible for the patient to feel any pain or anxiety. Depending on the surgeon’s preference and the patient’s age, local anesthesia can also be applied. Rhinoplasty operation usually takes two hours long. However, it is a process that continues for almost a day, with pre-operative preparations and post-operative procedures.

Today, there are two different methods that are widely preferred in rhinoplasty operations:  

Open rhinoplasty is often preferred. In this method, the area in question is intervened with a small incision between the nostrils. With this incision, the surgeon’s field of vision is increased. Open rhinoplasty is suitable for people who have previously undergone rhinoplasty surgery or have severe deformity in their nose. The surgeon’s wide angle of view is a factor that makes this method successful. However, it should be said that the recovery period of patients who prefer to be operated using this method is long. In addition, troublesome processes such as bruising and edema are more likely to occur after the operation.

Closed Rhinoplasty is applied with an incision that will remain in the nostrils. It should be said that the surgeon’s angle of view is more limited in this method. However, we should state that it is preferred due to the lack of any leave after the operation and due to limited recovery period. Closed rhinoplasty is preferred for operations where deformities are smaller in size.

“Contrary to what is assumed, Rhinoplasty surgery is performed with very simple touches.

What should be considered after Rhinoplasty surgery?

Rhinoplasty is more problem-free compared to other aesthetic operations. However, pain is inevitable after the surgery. Pain medication is provided to the patient by the surgeon without waiting for the effect of anesthesia to go. After the operation, the medications recommended by the doctor should be used completely. It is not recommended to stand up for four to six hours after the rhinoplasty operation.

It is essential to have a companion with the patient during and after the rhinoplasty operation. Because, the first time the patient stands up, it may be possible to feel dizzy or blurry. In addition, there is a problem of blood discharge from the nasal passages. Problems such as nausea and vomiting may occur due to unintentional swallowing of bleeding. In fact, it is possible to experience symptoms such as bloody vomiting and very dark stools.

After the rhinoplasty operation, a very short time should be waited for patients in order to continue their normal life. Six hours after the operation, in cases where there is no nausea, watery foods such as soup and Ayran can be consumed little by little. If desired, water can also be drunk. However, no matter what, it is essential to eat liquid food, especially during the first few days. After the operation, the occurrence of swelling and bruises in certain parts of the face should not be worried about it, especially under the eyes and around the nose. Because these types of symptoms occur as a requirement of the operation. Swelling and bruises will disappear spontaneously as time passes. However, the pillow should be kept high to prevent bleeding. In addition, no water should be drawn into the nose for the first 15 days. Blowing is another dangerous behavior.

It is very natural for the nose to remain blocked after nasal aesthetics. A patient who pays attention to all these and is aware of the possible risks that may arise after the operation will not have any problems. It is not recommended to use glasses for an average of six months after the operation in order to reach the desired shape of the nose.

What is the estimated time to recover after Rhinoplasty surgery?

Since nose aesthetics operation (Rhinoplasty surgery) is not a very risky operation, the recovery period is shorter than other aesthetic operations. However, it should be declared that the recovery time varies depending on the size of the operation. It is possible for patients to get up and walk around within four to six hours, and if there is no nausea or vomiting during this period, eating is also allowed.

Patients who have undergone a rhinoplasty operation are discharged on the same day if they wish. However, it would be the right decision to keep them under observation overnight. After the operation, tampons are placed inside the nose. These protective tampons are removed after one or two up to seven days passes after the operation. It depends on each patient case.

As a result, those who want to undergo rhinoplasty surgery must know the above details.
