Nose Job in Turkey

Nose Job in TurkryNose surgery also called rhinoplasty is one of the most performed procedures in Turkey and in the world. Nose is the most important part of the human face since people recognize others from the ratio of nose to rest of the face. Therefore the ratio of the nose plays an important role when defining a beauty in people’s mind.

People undergo a nose surgery for different reasons. Some of them would like to reshape their bridge, while some of them would like to reconstruct their tips. Nostrils and cartilages can be reshaped during nose surgery as well. Some of patients have breathing problems which can be solved with rhinoplasty surgery. In case of breathing problems, septorhinoplasty procedure is performed.

Rhinoplasty in Turkey


Nose reshaping surgery or rhinoplasty as its known is a welcome option to those who for one reason or another are simply not happy with the shape of their nose. There are generally two types of rhinoplasty, open and closed.

During a typical two to four hour open rhinoplasty procedure the plastic surgeon will generally make two incisions. A small incision is made across the columella which is the tissue that lies between the nostrils at the base of the nose. Doctor will then make a second incision known as a marginal incision which extends from the columella incision into each nostril. Using a pair of surgical scissors, doctor will carefully dissect the skin along the columella incision to begin lifting the skin away from the underlying framework. Your surgeon will continue to carefully dissect the skin away from the underlying cartilage. The skin is also dissected away from the nasal bone in order to fully expose the framework up the nose. This allows the physician to make precise adjustments to its shape. When he closes the incision leaves a very small almost unnoticeable scar on the underside of the nose.

A closed rhinoplasty can last about an hour. The skin is not lifted away from the framework of the nose. The incisions are made inside the nostril where they will be completely invisible after healing.

The preparation for both open and closed rhinoplasty is basically the same. Both usually entail a general sedation.

After each procedure you can expect some pain, bruising and swelling especially in the upper portion of your face and around your eyes for a few days. Some minor swelling may even last for a few months. Stitches, bandages and nasal splints may stay in place for anywhere between five and seven days. You should be able to return to work within seven to ten days after your procedure. As you begin to heal, you begin to notice the positive effects of your rhinoplasty procedure. But the final results make you wait for up to one year. In the end you may be surprised at just how significantly you can improve your appearance and your self-confidence by a simple nose job.

1. What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty , also known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure which is performed in order to change the shape or look of a nose, or improve its function due to various reasons.


2. How can I prepare for Rhinoplasty?

Prior to the Rhinoplasty, it is recommended that you don’t take any medications that may inhibit blood clotting or cause dilution, such as aspirin or medicines that contain it. If you smoke, it is also recommended that you stop smoking at least a month before your surgery and don’t start again until a month afterward. Smoking greatly slows down the healing process and will extend the time it takes you to recover.


3. What can I expect during Rhinoplasty?

Your rhinoplasty will be performed under general anesthesia and the entire surgery typically lasts no more than two hours. Depending on your situation, your surgeon may make an incision across the bottom of your nose between your nostrils (known as the open technique), or in the lining of your nostrils (known as the closed technique). Doctors in Clinic Center prefer doing the ‘closed technique’ in order to achieve the best results.


4. What is the recovery time for Rhinoplasty?

Your surgeon will require you to wear a nasal splint for the first week after your procedure. After your surgery, you may have moderate swelling and bruising around your eyes that could last up to two weeks. You should avoid strenuous activity for up to four weeks after your surgery; you can resume your daily activities as long as you be careful not to overwork your body.


5. What can I expect after Rhinoplasty?

Results from a Rhinoplasty surgery can typically be seen once the swelling goes down and your physician removes the nasal splint. Breathing might also be difficult for a few weeks after the surgery due to swelling. Most, of the swelling is gone in a month after your surgery. Your nose will be refined in the following months after your procedure as your doctor will tell you.


6. What is the best Rhinoplasty type for me, Open or Closed?

“Closed” rhinoplasty refers to a form of surgical access in which all of the surgical incisions are hidden within the nostril. Clinic Center surgeons prefer the closed approach since it avoids a potentially visible scar, and gives the best aesthetic outcome for the patients. Some surgeons prefer the “open” rhinoplasty approach, which connects the nostril incisions at the columella to increase surgical exposure. This approach is particularly useful with challenging nasal anatomy, such as a complex revision rhinoplasty where the tissues have been previously altered. Your doctor will decide if you would need an ‘Open Rhinoplasty’ after his assessment and consultation with you.


7. Can my breathing be improved during Rhinoplasty?

A good Rhinoplasty surgeon will maintain adequate nasal breathing following cosmetic rhinoplasty , in competent hands, nasal breathing is seldom compromised. Moreover, certain breathing problems, such as a crooked or pinched nose, can be treated to improve both appearance and function. Surgeons who are trained in both cosmetic and functional nasal surgery, such as the doctors in Clinic Center, will give your nose the aesthetic look you want and also improve nasal function.


8. How long will I be out of work following Rhinoplasty?

Resting is the crucial factor for the first week after surgery to hasten your recovery and minimize bruising and swelling. Although some bruising may be evident upon bandage removal one week after surgery, patients with desk jobs may safely return to the workplace at this time. Jobs which require physical exertion may need 2–3 weeks before returning to full work activity. In every case, avoiding exercise or unnecessary exertion is recommended for at least one month after surgery to avoid prolonged swelling.


9. Is there an age limit to Rhinoplasty?

The minimum age is 17 for women and 18 to 19 for men. There is no maximum age limit for nasal surgery, but older patients might need a longer recovery time than usual.
