It is a surgery to readjust the shape and at the same time function of the nose. Each person has a unique nose structure related to genetic and race characteristics which is shaped by the traumas went through over the years or in childhood years due to insufficient breath in.
Nose is an organ which gives unique characteristic contexture to our face together with eyes-mouth-chin is located in the middle of our face. If the person across has a nose structure that is in harmony with other organs of the face we can talk to the person by looking into the eyes. When we have a visual problem or a disproportion at our nose, in the quality of our skin, in our jaw or forehead structure, then the person cannot talk by looking at your eyes but looking at the problematic areas that are in front of us therefore resulting us to record the person in our visual memory with all these problems.
Facial beauty is only possible when our nose is in harmony with other facial organs and there should be no defect that would put the beauty of our eyes in the background.
This is reason of our efforts in Rhinoplasty and facial aesthetics surgeries. Namely, structuring is not apparent, in harmony with other organs of the face and of course breathing.
Before the operation at the time of our patient’s examination along with esthetic problems, possible distresses in internal structure of the nose is detected by using telescopic cameras. It is evaluated that whether the patient has Breathing in difficulty (deviation-nose cartilage curvature), post-nasal drainage, nose allergy and sinusitis and the size of the concha.
If it is considered necessary in some cases nose is scanned by tomography and it is investigated whether the nose has a functional defect. Because in most of the rhinoplasty operations nose structure is made smaller. As a result mini problems in the nose that do not disturb the patient before the operation become significant after the operation and cause distress to the patient. Even these mini problems should be eliminated and for your quality of life nose breathing must be completely ensured.
After detailed nose examination is completed, pictures of the patient is taken from different angles and by using digital viewing techniques nose end, nose shape, view from the sides, shapes of the nostrils and harmony with other facial structures are evaluated considering possible different results and the expectation of the patient is determined.
Patients who are decided for operation, arrive in the hospital in operation day and examined by anesthesia doctor. Past health problems are discussed and afterwards certain tests are made. These tests determine whether the body is suitable for a general anesthesia or not. Then if confirmed patient is taken into operation.
In general we have 2 main surgical approaches (open and closed techniques) and 3 main group surgeries which we decide according to the tasks that we aim in nose esthetics.
Mini Rhinoplasty: Operation duration is approximately half an hour. These are the mini rasping and mini reducing operations mainly used for mini problems in nose dorsa and performed by cutting nowhere over the nose but operate inside.
Closed Structure Rhinoplasty: Operation duration is approximately 1 hrs. This is the type of operation No cut is made outside of the nose and then reached to nose dorsa and nose dorsa problems are removed, wide nose is tightened, problems of side bones of the nose is removed.
Open Structure Rhinoplasty: Operation duration is approximately 1.5 hrs. and a W shaped cut is made in nose skin’s area between both nostrils and set free. Then reached to nose dorsa and edge. I especially prefer for shaping nose end and even up the nostrils.
After the operation except very special cases there is no need for a tampon therefore patients overcome recovery period in comfort. As a matter of fact high tech equipment are used and compared to old-times eye and face contour bruises are already very less at present and heals rapidly (up to 5 days) and the bandage put on nose dorsa is removed after 7 days and after mini plaster is removed patients return to their normal life.
1 week after our patients are discharged they are inspected again and inner nose crusts are cleaned and plaster is removed. They are asked be controlled after 1 month and again after 6 months.
