Nose 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.
