Although it is often said that the eyes reflect the soul, the nose occupies an important place in the center of the face. The nose can have a significant impact on facial aesthetics and perceived attractiveness. Primary rhinoplasty is one technique to change the nose’s appearance. Primary rhinoplasty is a term used to describe a surgical procedure to change the nose’s size, shape, and orientation.

The surgery will create a naturally beautiful nose while complementing the existing appeal of the eyes, lips, and other facial features. A nose job can successfully alleviate common cosmetic imperfections such as a bulging, droopy or square-tipped nose. Primary rhinoplasty can also use to reshape the nose’s bridge, the nasal tip’s angle, and change the direction of the nostril.

It covers a personalized surgery for primary rhinoplasty in Turkey (first-time nose surgery), which takes about 2 to 3 hours, down to the smallest detail, with millimetric measurements. With the operation to be performed, a unique nose compatible with a beautiful natural face aim for a functional and aesthetically healthy person. The chosen surgical technique performs with millimetric measurements, the required time allocated to the patient examined in detail before the operation, and a two-dimensional analysis of the nose and face made after the interview, functional problems, and aesthetics are determined. The process completes when the goal of a healthy, natural, and beautiful nose. During the postoperative recovery period, our surgeon will follow you and give advice, and the doctor will help you by applying the necessary treatments.

Primary rhinoplasty is a proper cosmetic surgery operation performed under general anesthesia. After this nose surgery, you will stay in the hospital for one day and rest at the hotel for six days. You will be able to see the first results of the procedure from the first week. The patient, who has never had an operation on the nose, has the advantage of being dark-skinned, skeletal, and cartilaginous. Therefore, these noses and their osseocartilaginous nature are easier to model and can use as grafting material or nasal camouflage when needed.

Patients who apply for primary rhinoplasty procedures in Turkey are generally satisfied with the appearance of their noses. This is because the nose gains an aesthetic appearance after the process, and the face is in balance with its general appearance. Even a slight change in proportion or symmetry can diminish the beauty of other facial features. This procedure is a delicate surgery that can produce stunningly beautiful results—however, cosmetic changes to the nose link with vital functions such as nasal breathing.

Who are the Ideal Candidates for Primary Rhinoplasty?

The nose, located in the middle third of the face, which is the most active and impressive area, is essential for the harmony and balance of the face. Nose contouring or primary rhinoplasty is a delicate operation; a few millimeters can make the difference between a natural-looking result and one that preserves the scars of the surgery. Using modern primary rhinoplasty techniques (conservative rhinoplasty, motorized or ultrasonic instruments), our surgeons can reshape a nose while maintaining its natural appearance. Thus, you can regain balance with the rest of the face.

To achieve this result, our doctor demonstrates an excellent knowledge of surgical anatomy to alter the size, shape, contours, and definition of the different structures that make up a nose. For a successful primary rhinoplasty, our surgeon considers all the details of the nose and face. Also, it is essential to maintain normal functional breathing beyond the natural aesthetic aspect. Therefore, a private consultation makes it possible to examine the nasal fossa and use computerized digital imaging to ensure that your expectations are consistent and in line with the aesthetics of your face.

Most primary rhinoplasty surgery in Turkey requires several changes in different aspects of your nose to achieve a proportional and attractive result. For example, even if a patient’s nose tip is significant and often swollen, once the direction has been shaped and tapered, other parts of the nose, including the bridge and width, need to be adjusted to achieve a shaped and proportionate result. It is therefore vital to have a global vision and fully understand the patient’s expectations.

Primary rhinoplasty is an intervention to treat defects and anomalies in the nose after birth or trauma. Check out the ideal candidates for primary rhinoplasty in Turkey:

  • Those with functional or breathing problems,
  • Those who have a latched nose, drooping, excessively high, the prominent arch behind the nose, collapse, asymmetry, post-traumatic curvature, and low nasal tip narrowed appearance

If you don’t like your nose when you look in the mirror, and it has become an obsession, you may also have functional disorders if it has affected your psychology.

What happens at the Consultation for Primary Rhinoplasty?

Primary rhinoplasty comes from a big decision. Visiting our surgeon for a consultation can be a big step forward for many patients, especially if you have been considering surgery for a long time. Our surgeon will ask questions about your expectations during your consultation and evaluate your medical history. After a careful front and profile analysis of your nose and face, your surgeon will discuss what you can do and how you can achieve the result. The doctor will address any fears or concerns you may have.

Regarding nose surgery, some aspects of the surgery may be entirely feasible, and others may be more complex and difficult to perform. This is a crucial step in a primary rhinoplasty project. Our surgeon will allow during the consultation:

  • The surgeon sets realistic and achievable goals, considering your expectations on the one hand and the morphology/characteristics of your nose on the other.
  • It will educate you about the postoperative results.

When considering rhinoplasty, remember that the surgeon will consider other features of your face, the skin of your nose, and what you want to change. Indeed, beyond nasal-specific defects (bumps, ball ends, etc.), primary rhinoplasty also requires examination of the nose in comparison to other features of the face, mainly the forehead and chin. It is a matter of harmonizing the nose with these features and sometimes even improving them (chin, forehead).

What are the Risks of Primary Rhinoplasty?

As with any surgery, there are some critical risks that you should be aware of in primary rhinoplasty in Turkey. Deciding whether to have rhinoplasty is a purely personal decision based on assessing possible complications and the aesthetic benefits you can obtain. Any surgical operation can lead to complications, and primary nose surgery is no exception.

Those of a general nature include unexpected reactions to anesthesia, deep vein thrombosis (typically the development of a blood clot in a vein in the leg), lung and cardiac infections, or distress that take a long time to complete or results from surgeries. For primary rhinoplasty risks, follow:

  • Excessive bleeding (nosebleeds)
  • Accumulation of blood under the skin (hematoma)
  • Partial wound healing or infection
  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Skin discoloration and irregularity
  • Persistent pain and swelling
  • Changes in skin sensitivity (such as numbness)
  • Development of hypertrophic scars
  • Nasal stenosis and perforation of the nasal septum are often very complex to correct with further treatments

Sometimes, patients may require additional surgery to correct cosmetic or health complications from rhinoplasty. Don’t trade when you don’t have clear ideas. It seems trivial, but that’s the basics! It would be best if you were especially careful in the case of aesthetic nose surgery, which can affect your life profoundly.

By changing your nose, you can improve the smile appearance and recreate the harmony of the face; in short, you can create a beautiful aesthetic difference between before and after. To acknowledge and appreciate it, you must prepare for this difference.

Don’t have surgery to please someone more than yourself. Many may think that with rhinoplasty, they can gain a more exciting appearance for a particular person. However, if this goal isn’t achieved, a deep disappointment may intervene, which risks psychological harm to the operated person.

How Do You Prepare for Primary Rhinoplasty?

Before the primary rhinoplasty in Turkey, our doctor should know your general health condition. You should also give us all information about any type of disease, trauma, or fracture of the nasal septum and a list of drugs you use. Then the doctor will analyze what you perceive as a defect, and which needs to be corrected by primary rhinoplasty. The surgeon will decide on the type of intervention that suits your needs and provide accurate detail on the outcome you can achieve. To achieve these results in the best possible way, it is essential to examine the aesthetic and functional parameters, but also the psychological aspect of the patient.

After the nose surgery, we recommend that you rest at night by keeping the head 30 degrees above the body to reduce the postoperative swelling. We recommend not smoking until the dressing removes because smoking causes vasoconstriction in the microcirculation. This, in turn, is necessary for proper healing and is an essential tool for irritants and bacteria.

Avoid activities that increase blood pressure, such as strenuous household chores, intense sports sessions, or lifting weights for several weeks. Don’t blow your nose very gently until at least a month later. Be careful not to sneeze with your mouth open. Especially don’t use thick and heavy-framed glasses. Don’t consume alcohol for a week. It is forbidden to chew gum and eat foods that require intense chewing.

What is the procedure of Primary Rhinoplasty?

When the intervention is for aesthetic purposes, it is an opportunity to present your goals and have our surgeon confirm whether they are achievable. During this interview, the specialist examines your face and overall harmony to recommend a tailored treatment plan that will guarantee the best aesthetic result. Medical imaging evaluation requires functional correction interventions. Check out the primary rhinoplasty steps in Turkey:

  • Anesthesia

Primary rhinoplasty performs under general anesthesia. However, if there is an intervention regarding correcting a slight defect or only the shape of the nostrils, our doctor may suggest other methods. Although operative gestures may differ from one patient to another depending on the fault encountered, there are nevertheless certain similarities from one intervention to the next.

  • Incision

In most cases, our surgeon will inject anti-bleeding and pain-relieving serum after drawing marks on your nose to guide our surgeon during the surgery. The doctor then separates the skin from the bone by making the necessary incisions. Our doctor gives your nose the shape you want.

  • Final

Finally, our doctor will close your skin after giving the final shape of your nose. At the end of the surgery, the doctor wears a splint after internal or external sutures. The postoperative course largely depends on the type of operation performed. Pain treatment is handled first by operative anesthesia; it is transmitted very quickly by applying an analgesic treatment prescribed by our doctor. The doctor typically removes the splint after 7-8 days; if these aren’t absorbable, your stitches will also terminate.

How is the Recovery After Primary Rhinoplasty?

Considering what has says before, it is natural and consequential to change the structures in the nose that will give the new shape to maintain the physiological functionality of the nose. For example, the cartilage that forms the inner valve of the nose must protect to preserve its function. When there is a deviated septum, it is necessary to put it in the correct position; if they are hypertrophic, the inferior turbinates should replace to improve air entry into the nose.

Within 48 hours following the primary rhinoplasty operation, you will need to lift your head and rest. From the third day, you will be able to return to everyday life by avoiding strenuous activities, sauna and baths, exposure to the sun, scorching food and drinks, and limiting the use of glasses as much as possible.

Swelling and bruising may be around the eyes for the first two weeks. Bleeding that requires the use of tampons may occur very rarely. Seven days after the surgery, the surgeon will remove the cast, and your initially swollen and edematous nose will gradually take the shape you agreed upon before the primary rhinoplasty. Let’s talk about the recovery period after primary rhinoplasty in Turkey. It varies from patient to patient depending on factors such as the extent to which nasal tissues manipulate and the technique used for the procedure.

By following the instructions given by our surgeon, you can feel more comfortable in the postoperative period. You can return to work and social activities two to three weeks after the surgery. However, the result will take some time, and your nose will not look permanently healed for about one year after the procedure.

The most common side effects associated with the procedure are swelling and bruising. Your surgeon will guide you on how to reduce these symptoms. However, applying cold packs to painful areas generally provides relief, and keeping the head elevated reduces edema. It takes 2-3 weeks for the swelling to go down entirely, and significant changes occur in the nose in the first 2-12 weeks after the surgery. The nose will slowly change with a gradual reduction in swelling. When the chalk removes after a week, the nose appears swollen, and the swelling may increase in the following days. By the end of the third week, most of the node will go down, but the nose will remain swollen for several months.

Most of the swelling goes away after 3-4 months, but it may take a year for the nose to take its final shape. As for the bruises, these will be noticeable a few weeks after surgery but will reabsorb over time. Swelling and bruising are part of the routine healing of a rhinoplasty. Both symptoms depend on various factors, such as the technique used and the patient’s ability to recover.

In short, the primary rhinoplasty recovery process differs for each patient, and following the plastic surgeon’s postoperative instructions can make a recovery faster and more comfortable.

When will you see Primary Rhinoplasty Results?

Even when significantly healed, your nose may sometimes show subtle imperfections. Indeed, every person heals differently. This is especially important in nose surgery. Certainly, the skin covering must adapt to the newly replaced bony and cartilaginous framework.

The details of a primary rhinoplasty depend on the thickness of the skin as well as the primary nature of the intervention. A possible surgical or medical retouch is sometimes necessary but cannot foresee before a few months.

You can clearly evaluate the results of primary rhinoplasty in Turkey one year till 1,5 year later. The healing process will allow the skin to adapt to the new morphology of the underlying osseocartilaginous structures. To get a stable result, you need to wait several months. You can carry out corrective actions after one year if needed.
