Rhinoplasty, or nose aesthetic, is a surgical procedure whose purpose is to change the unwanted external shape of the nose and improve nasal breathing. Rhinoplasty in Turkey is mainly sought after by people who are dissatisfied with the shape or size of their noses. The nose is the most dominant feature of the human face. People with abnormally prominent noses are often dissatisfied with themselves. It is a rhinoplasty that can help men and women with congenital or acquired asymmetries in the nose and can be successfully removed by surgery.

Every person is different. Therefore, every rhinoplasty procedure should be individualized. Rhinoplasty certainly doesn’t follow a single template. A pre-operative evaluation is always required, and an experienced operator chooses the correct process. Surgical procedures differ, for example, depending on whether the surgery requires intervention on the nasal skeleton or whether only the soft part, namely the tip of the nose, is modified. In the field of plastic surgery, this procedure is considered the most prestigious.

The cosmetic effect of this operation is significant for people with a large or asymmetrically shaped nose. Thus, the environment often notices that the patient's appearance has changed at first glance. However, patients who want a smaller nose should notice a change for the better. The operator proceeds without compromising the patient's identity. Therefore, the environment often perceives a positive appearance difference but cannot identify what caused it.

Your general health condition must be suitable for rhinoplasty in Turkey. You should treat if you have a runny nose, inflammation of the nasal mucosa, paranasal sinuses, or respiratory or tear ducts. Our surgeon will give you instructions accordingly. In addition, our surgeon evaluates the condition of your skin. For example, if there is inflammation near the nose, you should have it treated first. You should talk to our doctor about complications if you have chronic allergic conditions, endocrine diseases, or high blood pressure.

The nose's shape and size significantly affect the face's general appearance and expression. Deviations in shape and size cause aesthetic and often functional problems. For this reason, sometimes one of our different specialist doctors can cooperate for a good result of the nose surgery.

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and takes a few hours. You will stay in the hospital for one night, and then we will transfer you to your hotel. You will rest at the hotel for six days. During this time, our team will always be in contact with you. After this process, you can return to light activities with our doctor's recommendation.

Who are Ideal Candidates for Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is an operation for anyone bothered by an unfavorable nose shape or size, either congenital or acquired (for example, because of an injury). This is a set of problems, such as an eagle or saddle-shaped nose, deviation of the nose from its axis, too wide, or, on the contrary, narrow nose.

Aesthetic problems in the nose are often accompanied by functional issues, for example, recurrent infections caused by impaired breathing and deviation of the nasal septum. We recommend that you undergo surgery only after the end of growth and puberty, usually after eighteen. You must be healthy.

The nose forms the center of the face and creates its character together. There are many people whose nose shape or size makes them uncomfortable and lowers their self-confidence. The aesthetic effect of rhinoplasty in Turkey is relatively high, and its impact on the patient's psychology is also significant. The upper age limit for rhinoplasty isn’t fixed, but it is ideal to have surgery before age 35, then the skin elasticity already decreases.

Ideal candidates for rhinoplasty in Turkey are those with the most appropriate age range. They have completed the development of the facial skeleton (girls around 16-17 years old, boys from 18 years old). Of course, it always depends on the scope of the procedure, its quality, and skin type. In terms of healing, sufficient flexibility and elasticity of the soft tissues allow our surgeon to perform a larger-scale operation. It also reduces the risk of tissue swelling and excessive scarring, which can adversely affect the shape of the nose.

With a smaller scope of shape and size adjustment, you can afford to operate even at a later age without a significant risk of complications during the recovery period. It is also generally true that the greater risk of scarring, which adversely affects the shape of the nose, is always in the cartilaginous part of the nose. Problems rarely occur in the nose's bony part of the upper half. If you have the following conditions, you can decide on the procedure after talking to our surgeon:

What Happens During the Consultation for Rhinoplasty?

During your first consultation for rhinoplasty in Turkey, our doctor will explain the course of the surgery in detail, evaluate your situation, discuss the surgical options with you, and choose the one that suits you best.

This part of the preparation is essential. You should be open with your doctor and try to agree on the result together. After the rhinoplasty procedure in Turkey, you should prepare for this change. Our surgeon will consider the individual proportions of your face that make up the overall profile. Therefore, the doctor's more significant interventions in the nose shape accompany adjustments to the lower jaw and chin.

First, our surgeon will listen to you and then evaluate the condition of your nose. Also, together with our specialist, you will find a compromise and a way to correct the nose in a way that preserves the individual features of your face.

The critical step here is to define the goals of rhinoplasty clearly. You must perfectly explain your desired change requests. You must be wary of the consequences. Be wary of photos that won't represent the result, especially what you see on social media.

Along with these, our surgeon will guide you and warn you that this intervention will always lead to a significant transformation in your face. Changing the nose also changes the importance of the upper lip and, above all, adjusts the chin's volume about the face's general structure.

The quality of your skin is related to the result of a rhinoplasty. Thick, oily skin may not provide the desired thinness, especially at the tip of the nose. Another limitation of rhinoplasty is the very wide nostrils. A reduction is possible but at the expense of external scars, which you must accept. Indeed, in almost all cases, all spots are hidden under the rim of the mouth or inside the nose, except for a large deformation (especially at the tip of the nose) and are often congenital. Don't worry; our aesthetic appearance will improve a lot!

Are There Risks to Rhinoplasty?

Of course, like any surgical operation, rhinoplasty has risks. Choosing our surgeon qualified for this type of intervention and truly exercises in a surgical context makes it possible to limit complications and provide practical, personalized follow-up if necessary. If evolution is generally satisfactory, our plastic surgeon will inform you of all difficulties, including the most exceptional.

Complications and postoperative risks are rare today. Pre-operative examination and consultations with our plastic surgeon aim to eliminate possible risks and complications as much as possible. However, we will always keep you informed of potential complications. In general, for rhinoplasty risks, follow:

To avoid possible complications, you must follow specific recommendations before rhinoplasty. At least two weeks before the operation, you should stop taking drugs that reduce blood clotting. You must also maintain a distance, which should not be less than 3 to 4 weeks, after a viral illness or an illness treated with antibiotics.

Even if you follow the proper preparation before the operation, various complications may occur either during the process, immediately after, or after a few months. One of the undesirable phenomena is, for example, more bleeding. It's usually okay to stop it with tamponade or anti-bleeding medication.

Rarely do more severe complications can occur. For example, infection after nose surgery is sporadic these days. To avoid this, you should be careful when swimming in the sea, pool, or another place after the procedure and try to prevent water from entering the nasal passages. If an infection occurs, you should treat it with antibiotics with the doctor's approval.

People with allergies or endocrine diseases may be surprised by nasal swelling after surgery. But in most cases, they disappear thanks to correctly performed massages. People with oily and porous skin may experience swelling at the tip of the nose.

How to prepare for Rhinoplasty?

Our specialist performs a pre-operative blood test according to prescriptions. The specialist will make sure that there are no contraindications for surgery. Depending on the correction, the doctor may also request a radiological examination. We will have some suggestions that you should follow in your preparation process before rhinoplasty or aesthetic nose surgery:

Finally, our doctor will perform a facial analysis. For face analysis, the doctor examines the following ratios:

If you have had any nose surgery in the past or if you had had a nose injury before, even if it was many years ago, be sure to tell your doctor. You should also inform your doctor if you have breathing difficulties. We assume that you will not experience an acute illness in the period immediately before the planned rhinoplasty (virus, common cold, etc.). Report any disease to your doctor. You should limit smoking at least two weeks before surgery and during recovery.

What is the procedure for Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty usually takes 1.5 to 2 hours; however, more complex operations may take longer. The nasal skin loosens in the classical surgery course, and the tip and wing cartilages are partially removed and possibly reshaped. If the situation requires the nasal bridge to be removed, the bony part of the nose narrow. The skin around the nose is very tolerant, and strategically directed incisions contribute to the excellent outcome of the operation—the nose fix to its final shape with plaster and fixation. A tamponade is placed in the nostrils to prevent bleeding. A patient with tamponade can only breathe through the mouth. Generally, the steps of rhinoplasty in Turkey:

You will receive general anesthesia for a comfortable and unique experience. Thus, you will not have any aches or pains.

The specialist usually makes the incisions, so they aren’t visible from the outside, inside the nostrils, or under the upper lip. In rare cases, external scars are necessary; the surgeon will hide imperfections at the base of the nostrils to reduce the size of the nostrils. In the case of open rhinoplasty (to access the nasal infrastructure), extensive deformities, or in the case of surgical revision, the scars will be along the columella (the column separating the two nostrils).

Through these incisions, the surgeon will isolate the bone and cartilage framework by peeling the skin on the outside and the mucosa on the inside.

The surgeon completes a portion of the tissue so that the shape and desired aesthetic value are perfect. For reinforcement, the doctor most often uses the tissue of your own body; the most suitable are those similar in structure and color to your nose tissue. To replace the cartilaginous part, the specialist uses cartilage from the nasal septum or ear, which may be cartilage from the rib joint. The doctor will then fix the osseocartilaginous infrastructure as you imagined.

Our doctor closes the incisions with small sutures that are mostly absorbable. Dressings and a splint (plaster, plastic, or metal) molded and adhered to the nose provide support and protection.

Rhinoplasty in Turkey treats many problems, such as reducing the nose, removing a bump, correcting a deviation, and shortening a long nose.

How is the Recovery After Rhinoplasty?

You should not worry during the removal of the outer dressing; it will take several months till 1,5 years for the changes you want to be final. In profile, the nose may go up again and down in the following weeks. It may take longer to resolve the significant enlargement caused by edema in the bone and cartilage area of ​​the nose.

The results are rarely painful, and the main limitation is the inability to breathe through the nose (due to edema). The postoperative follow-up period, which varies according to the type of rhinoplasty, is around 7-15 days:

What are the Results of Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty results in Turkey are highly successful. Defects in results are rare or result from a misunderstanding of goals to be achieved or, exceptionally, the appearance of scarring or unexpected tissue reactions. These defects, if poorly tolerated, can be corrected with surgical retouching (more straightforward than the initial surgery). But it cannot happen for several months.

You should not expect the exact result right away. Of course, if you remove a large lump, you will see the change when you remove the dressing. However, there may be edema that doesn’t subside immediately or uniformly. A good portion of results achieves very quickly. But you must be patient with the result. The results would be longer if the tip of the nose is opened openly (with the separation of tissues).

It takes an average of 3 months for the operated area to completely fade and the skin to adapt to the new bone and cartilage structure. It is only 12 months before you can genuinely appreciate the result. Our surgeon will continue to follow up during this time, and if any defects become evident over time, a secondary rhinoplasty or retouching is possible.

Rhinoplasty Before and After Photos
