Nose Aesthetics

As an aesthetically prominent organ, the nose has an important effect on the appearance of the person. Although rhinoplasty is one of the most common aesthetic surgery procedures, another issue that should be considered as much as the appearance to be obtained while performing rhinoplasty is to be compatible with the person's face is to protect the functional functions of the nose such as olfaction and respiration during surgery. 

What is Nose Aesthetics?

The aesthetic surgical procedure applied to change and improve the shape of the nose by intervening in the bone and cartilage structures of the nose is called rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty. Since the nose is one of the most characteristic elements on the face, any deformity in the nose can cause a non-aesthetic facial appearance. The most effective and permanent solution for people who want to have a natural and more aesthetic nose in harmony with their face is rhinoplasty surgery.

Who is Suitable for Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic surgery recommended for people who want to eliminate deformities in their nose congenitally, subsequently formed or caused by various traumas. 

Rhinoplasty; 

  • Elimination of deformities that occur as a result of injury to the nose,
  • Correction of birth defects,
  • Making the shape of the nose more aesthetic,
  • Elimination of the length and arched structure of the nose,
  • Reduction of the nostrils and/or elimination of nasal asymmetry,
  • It is possible to apply for rhinoplasty operation for different purposes such as shaping the tip of the nose.

How is Nose Aesthetics Performed?

Rhinoplasty can be performed with open or closed technique. Which technique will be applied is determined individually depending on the problem to be corrected, the structural features of the nose and the surgeon's preferences. Although rhinoplasty is usually performed under general anaesthesia, local anaesthesia may be applied according to the surgeon's preference in simple procedures where very small touches will be made. 

In open rhinoplasty, an incision is made in the soft tissue between the nostrils, also known as the columella. This incision allows the surgeon to have a wider angle of vision during surgery.  In this way, the surgeon can easily access and intervene in the cartilage and bone tissue under the nasal tissue. Open rhinoplasty is generally preferred for people who have had a rhinoplasty surgery before but need revision rhinoplasty or have severe deformity in their nose. In open rhinoplasty, oedema and bruising formation may be higher and the healing process may be longer than closed rhinoplasty.

In closed rhinoplasty, where the surgeon's field of vision is less, the incision is made through the nostrils. Imaging is done with microsurgical cameras. Closed rhinoplasty is a preferred method in patients who do not require very serious interventions to the septum, in cases where the intervention will be performed on the tip of the nose and cartilage tissue, and when the patient undergoes rhinoplasty for the first time. Since the nasal skin and intranasal soft tissues are not opened and the ligaments are not cut, bleeding is minimal in closed rhinoplasty and the healing process is shorter than open rhinoplasty.

When it comes to rhinoplasty surgery, it is not possible to say which technique is superior. The technique is preferred in line with the needs of the patients, the experience of the surgeon and the scope of the changes to be made in the nose. The important thing is that personalised surgical planning can be made.

Recovery Process After Rhinoplasty

After rhinoplasty surgery, some pain may be felt after the anaesthesia wears off. Painkillers and other medications prescribed by the doctor should be used regularly to relieve mild pain and to have a healthy healing process. 

Depending on the technique applied and the scope of the procedure, swelling and bruising may occur under the eyes, around the nose, and in certain areas of the face after rhinoplasty. A high pillow should be used in the early postoperative period against the risk of bleeding. Sniffing and blowing water into the nose should be avoided for 15 days following the surgery.

Glasses should not be worn for the specified period after rhinoplasty surgery. It is also necessary to avoid exposure to direct sunlight. Generally, it is possible to start light exercises and sports that are not too strenuous and do not have the risk of a blow to the nose 1 week after surgery.
