In Which Situations Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty, known as nose plastic surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to correct the cosmetic and functional structure of the nose. So, in which cases is rhinoplasty preferred?

Aesthetic Concerns: Many people choose to have rhinoplasty surgery because they are unhappy with the shape or size of their nose. With this surgery, the nose gets a more aesthetic appearance.

Respiratory Problems: Congestion due to bone-cartilage curvature in the internal structure of the nose, concha (nasal flesh) enlargement or other anatomical malformations can make breathing difficult. Rhinoplasty surgery is also performed to correct such breathing problems.

Repair After Trauma: Rhinoplasty surgery may be required to correct the structure of the nose that has been damaged by an accident or injury.

Congenital Anomalies: Congenital nasal deformities are also corrected by rhinoplasty. Dr. Şakir Bilge Çelik, who offers special solutions to the needs and expectations of each patient and stands out among Antalya rhinoplasty doctors with his success, performs his surgery with the latest technology and techniques. You can contact us to get a healthy and aesthetic nose structure.

What are the Types of Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty surgeries are largely divided into two main categories: Open rhinoplasty and Closed rhinoplasty. Both methods are used to correct the nasal structure and improve the aesthetic appearance, but differ in terms of application techniques.

Open Rhinoplasty: Open rhinoplasty surgery begins with a small incision under the nostrils. This incision allows the surgeon better access to the nasal structure. This method is especially preferred in complex rhinoplasty cases because it allows the surgeon to see the nasal structure better and shape it in detail.

Closed Rhinoplasty: Closed rhinoplasty is performed through the nostrils and there is no need to make an incision visible from the outside. This method is suitable for less complex rhinoplasty needs. The biggest advantage of closed rhinoplasty is that it leaves no scar after surgery.

Both methods are chosen depending on the needs of the patient and the characteristics of the nasal structure. Rhinoplasty surgery is carefully planned to adapt to the facial contours of the person and to give a natural appearance.

In recent years, the use of Ultrasonic Piezo Device and Tur motor devices, which offer the opportunity to shape the nasal bones and cartilages without leaving trauma, has also become popular.

In our clinic, all forms of rhinoplasty can be performed according to the needs and choices of the patient; the latest technological devices are also used in our surgeries. In this context, Piezo Rhinoplasty comes to the fore.

How is Rhinoplasty Surgery Performed?

Rhinoplasty surgery is performed using different techniques depending on the patient’s nose structure and wishes. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes 2-4 hours on average. The surgeon makes changes to the nasal bones and cartilages, taking into account the patient’s nasal structure and aesthetic goals. These changes can serve different purposes such as reducing the size of the nose, changing its shape or reshaping the tip of the nose. During the operation, the procedures are performed through incisions made through or under the nostrils. Postoperative recovery may take several weeks. Postoperative bruising, swelling and mild pain are normal and resolve over time. It takes 6-12 months for the nose shape to fit completely.

What Should I Do Before and After Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Preparation for rhinoplasty surgery starts a few weeks before the surgery. Patients should limit or stop smoking and drinking alcohol. Because these substances can slow down the healing process. Also, certain medications and supplements such as aspirin, which can increase the risk of bleeding, should be avoided. Close to the day of surgery, it is important that patients get enough rest and adopt healthy eating habits.

In the postoperative period, patients are advised to stay away from work and heavy daily activities for a few days. Keeping the head elevated and applying ice to the face helps reduce swelling and bruising. In addition, using the medications recommended by the doctor regularly in the postoperative period and attending follow-up appointments determined by the doctor accelerates the healing process and prevents possible complications.

It is also important to avoid heavy sports and physical activities during the recovery period. During this period, it is critical for patients to take good care of themselves, get enough rest and eat a balanced diet for a fast and healthy recovery.

Who Cannot Have Nose Aesthetics?

Rhinoplasty is not applied to people with unfavorable general health conditions. It can be especially risky for those with serious heart or lung diseases. Individuals who have not completed puberty usually do not undergo rhinoplasty until the development of facial bones is complete. People with psychological instability or unrealistic expectations are not suitable candidates for this surgery as they may be misled about the potential outcomes of the surgery. In addition, chronic smokers and people with other habits that may complicate recovery should be carefully evaluated as they may affect the success of the surgery.

At What Age Is Rhinoplasty (Nose Aesthetics) Performed?

Rhinoplasty can be performed towards the end of puberty when the facial bones have completed their development, which is around the age of 16-17 for girls and 17-18 for boys. However, these age limits may vary from person to person and each individual’s physical development is different. The best time for rhinoplasty is when both physical and psychological maturity is achieved. Doctors assess each patient’s individual situation and determine the best time for surgery.
