What is Nose Aesthetics?

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery operation performed by making changes in the bone and cartilage structures of the nose shape in this structure.

Nasal aesthetics, also called nasoplasty and rhinoplasty, is one of the most frequently applied aesthetic operations. Rhinoplasty is performed in order to eliminate the deformities of the nose that are congenital, occur later or occur due to trauma. While deformity can be corrected in some cases only because it causes visual discomfort, it may also need to be corrected because it causes problems such as respiratory disorders in most people.

Regardless of the reason for the aesthetic operation, the primary goal in rhinoplasty is to make the nasal airway work optimally at the end of the operation. During the operation, one or more of the operations of reshaping the nose (reconstruction), removing deformities or changing the shape of a part of it can be applied.

In people considering rhinoplasty, whether the nasal tissues are suitable for aesthetic operation should be checked during the examination to be performed by the surgeon. Since the slightest intervention produces very significant results, operations related to rhinoplasty must be performed by a surgeon who is an expert in the field.

Rhinoplasty, which can be applied to both men and women, is a complicated operation. It takes a period of 6 to 12 months to fully achieve the expected result. This process varies according to the size of the operation in the nose, the structure of the tissues in the nose or the severity of the problem. In some patients after the surgery, minor corrections may be necessary in order to achieve the desired shape.

How is Nose Aesthetics Performed?

Nose aesthetic surgery is a type of operation that is mostly performed under general anesthesia. In simple rhinoplasty operations that require only small touches, local anesthesia can also be applied according to the surgeon’s preference. While the operation takes 2 hours on average, a rhinoplasty operation usually takes 1 day with preoperative preparations and post-operative applications and observation periods.

There are 2 different rhinoplasty techniques that are commonly preferred. In the first of these, open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made between the nostrils and the surgeon’s angle of view is widened thanks to this incision. Generally, the open rhinoplasty technique is preferred in people with advanced nasal deformity or who have had a different nasal aesthetic operation before. The biggest advantage of the open technique is that the viewing angle is wider. However, the healing process is longer and the problems such as edema and bruising after the operation are larger.

In another technique, closed rhinoplasty, the incision is adjusted to remain within the nostrils. The surgeon’s field of view is less, but the recovery time is shorter and there are no stitches on the nose after the operation. The closed rhinoplasty technique is generally preferred for correction of smaller deformities.

How Long Is Nose Aesthetics Recovery Time?

Although the recovery period in patients undergoing rhinoplasty varies according to the size of the operation, patients can usually get up and walk around within 4-6 hours, and eat after 6 hours if there is no nausea and vomiting. In some cases, patients are discharged on the same day, and sometimes they are discharged the next day after being kept under observation (observation) for 1 night.

At the end of the surgery, tampons are usually placed in the nose. These tampons are removed 1-2 days later, and the mold placed on the back of the nose is removed approximately 1 week after the operation. If no complications occur after the surgery, patients can usually return to work within a period of 1 week to 10 days. It is normal for swelling and bruising to occur after the operation, and it will lighten over time and decrease to a level that can be covered with make-up within 1 week-10 days.

After 1 month after the operation, 75-80% of the edema disappears. The targeted shape and full recovery are achieved one year after the operation. During this process, it is normal to see edema in the nose area that occurs in the morning and disappears in the following hours.
