Nose aesthetics or rhinoplasty is the name given to surgical operations performed to change the shape of the nose.
Reasons for having a rhinoplasty include repairing deformities in an injury, changing the physical appearance of the nose to correct a birth defect, or improving breathing by improving some breathing difficulties.
In some cases, both breathing difficulties and physical appearance may be among the reasons behind choosing the rhinoplasty option.
Rhinoplasty is not a simple but a difficult operation. There are many reasons for this. First of all, the nose is a three-dimensional and complex shape located in the middle of the face.
Although the changes made during rhinoplasty are very small, these changes can make a big difference in the appearance and functioning of the nose. Since these changes are small, the margin of error is also high. It should not be forgotten that after the surgery, the nose changes throughout life, as in the rest of the body. It is difficult to say when the final desired result will be achieved.
However, most of the swelling will disappear within a year. For this reason, it is recommended to wait at least one year even when a second operation is required.
