Although deformities in the nose are due to trauma, they can also be congenital.

Although deformities create an aesthetic problem, they can cause breathing problems or similar functional problems.

Rhinoplasty is the most effective method that can be applied to eliminate deformities in the nose and repair functional problems.

Rhinoplasty, also called aesthetic nose surgery, is performed to make the nose compatible with the face, to create an aesthetic appearance and to eliminate dysfunctions.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also called aesthetic nose surgery, is performed to make the nose compatible with the face, to create an aesthetic appearance and to eliminate dysfunctions. Rhinoplasty is performed by plastic surgeons. Within the scope of rhinoplasty, it is possible to replace only bones, cartilage tissue or skin layer. However, all of these processes can be done together. The shape of the nose after rhinoplasty is decided after consultation by the patient and the surgeon.

Why is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty is an effective method for eliminating many problems related to the nose, eliminating aesthetic defects, overcoming functional problems, and eliminating the lack of self-confidence and similar psychological problems experienced by people due to the bad appearance of the nose. Within the scope of rhinoplasty, the following problems that cause discomfort for patients can be eliminated:

  • Functional problems such as breathing, snoring or sleep apnea
  • Deformities resulting from trauma or injury.

Rhinoplasty is an operation that can be preferred by both men and women. Sometimes it is possible for individuals to request rhinoplasty based on their personal preferences, and sometimes surgeons recommend rhinoplasty as a requirement.

Who Can Have Rhinoplasty?

Anyone who is disturbed by the deformities of their nose, has functional problems due to deformities, and who does not have an obstacle to rhinoplasty in general health can have rhinoplasty. The situations that patients who apply for rhinoplasty feel uncomfortable are usually the arched structure of the nose, the nostrils being smaller or larger than normal, the tip of the nose not having an aesthetic appearance, and the gap between the lips and the nose not at the desired level. As a matter of fact, all patients who complain about these conditions can be applied for rhinoplasty.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty can be performed with many techniques. The most frequently used techniques are the open and closed technique, the delivery technique and the modified delivery technique. Apart from these surgical methods, non-surgical methods such as nasal filling, rope suspension and nasal botox can also be evaluated. Today, within the scope of developing health technologies, with a digital rehearsal performed before the operation, how the nose will look after the operation can be rehearsed. The details of open and closed rhinoplasty applications, which are the most frequently used methods within the scope of rhinoplasty, are as follows:

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty is made through an incision made in the middle of the nostrils. In open rhinoplasty operations, the surgeon has a much wider field of view, field dominance is greater and the procedure is therefore safer. Therefore, even millimetric interventions can be done much more easily. The only handicap of the open rhinoplasty operation is that the healing process is longer than the closed technique.

Closed Rhinoplasty

In closed rhinoplasty, the incision is made from the inside of the nose. Therefore, there is no visible scar after the operation. Although the incision is made from the inside, the cartilage, bone and subcutaneous region are accessible. After the nose is provided with the desired appearance, the inner part is sutured and the operation is terminated. Closed rhinoplasty is mostly used for small-scale interventions because the field of view is more limited than open rhinoplasty.

In addition to open and closed rhinoplasty, delivery and modified delivery methods, piezo rhinoplasty is among the most preferred methods in recent years. This operation is performed with the help of an ultrasonic bone cutter called a piezo. Rhinoplasty should be planned individually; Therefore, the method to be applied should be decided after the surgeon's examination.

After rhinoplasty operations, the image requested by patients may not occur due to many reasons. Working with a surgeon who is not an expert in his field is shown as the main reason why patients are not satisfied with the process. If rhinoplasty operations fail for different reasons, a second operation is required and this operation is also called revision rhinoplasty. Therefore, patients should get support from a specialist surgeon in order to achieve the desired nose appearance and to avoid the need for a second operation.
