Rhinoplasty (Aesthetic Nose)
Although the face is the most prominent part of the human eye at first glance, the correction of the deformities in this region is very important in terms of aesthetic and psychological aspects. Thanks to the development of techniques applied in the field of medicine and the application of innovative methods, operations related to nasal aesthetics can be performed in much simpler operations than in the past. Nasal aesthetic applications called rhinoplasty can be an important requirement both for aesthetic expectations and health. As a result of the elimination of the disorder in the region with aesthetic operation, the person can both breathe in a healthier way and have the nose that he wants.
What is nasal aesthetics?
Nasal aesthetics, also called nasoplasty and rhinoplasty, is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic operations. It is performed to eliminate congenital deformities in the nose, which may occur after birth or that have occurred due to traumas. The deformity should be corrected in some cases only because it is visually disturbing, but in most cases it can be corrected because it causes problems such as respiratory distress. Regardless of the reasons for aesthetic operation, the primary goal in nasal aesthetics is to make the respiratory tract in the nose work at the end of the operation. One or more of the operations of reshaping the nose, removing deformations or deforming a portion of the nose is performed during the operation.
The rhinoplasty application in individuals considering the nasal tissues suitable for aesthetic operation must be checked during the examination by the surgeon. Nasal aesthetic surgery should be performed by a surgeon who is expert in the field, since the slightest intervention has very significant results. Nose aesthetics, which can be applied in both men and women, is a complicated operation. Achieving the expected result exactly requires a period of 6 to 12 months. This process varies according to the size of the operation in the nose, the structure of the tissues in the nose or the severity of the problem. Postoperative correction may be required to achieve the exact shape desired in some patients.
What is the nasal tip aesthetics?
One of the most affecting parts of the nose is the shape of the tip of the nose. Commonly seen deformities at the tip of the nose are:
The tip of the nose is larger than it should be.
Nose tip that looks like compressed
The nostrils are not symmetrical to each other
Low nose tip
Nasal tip stiffness
Pointed nose tip
In patients with the aforementioned problems, nose end aesthetic operations, which is a sub-branch of nasal aesthetics, are utilized. In these operations, the bone part of the nose is not touched, only the soft tissue and cartilage located at the tip of the nose are processed. Therefore, surgery is easier than rhinoplasty. Pre- and post-operative procedures are almost identical to those of other nasal esthetic surgeries. The operation time is shorter and all procedures are completed within a period of 30-60 minutes. Patients are usually discharged on the same day. The recovery time is also shorter than in rhinoplasty.
Why is the nose aesthetics done?
The first of the reasons for nasal esthetics is the occurrence of breathing problems due to a congenital or later deformity in the nose. The deformity that causes respiratory problems can be a visible disorder, or it can be a disorder that is not visible from the outside inside the nose. The second reason is that the person is uncomfortable with the appearance of his nose and wants to have a different looking nose. The presence of a curvature or dislocation in the bone part of the nose, deformities observed in the cartilage structure, excessively large nose, asymmetry in the nose structure are among the reasons requiring nasal aesthetic surgery. Totally personal preferences play a role in aesthetic operations. While some people have a very large or protruding nose, they are quite satisfied with the appearance of the nose, while some people may prefer a different nose image, although they have a normal nose structure. As a result, rhinoplasty operations can be performed because of health problems or personal preferences and are widely applied.
How is nose aesthetics done?
Nose aesthetic surgery is a type of operation performed mostly under general anesthesia. In simple rhinoplasty operations that require only small touches, local anesthesia can be applied according to the surgeon's preference. While the operation takes an average of 2 hours, a rhinoplasty operation usually takes 1 day with preoperative preparations and post-operative applications and observation times. There are 2 different nasal esthetics techniques that are widely preferred. In open rhinoplasty, the first of these, a small incision is made between the nostrils and this incision increases the angle of view of the surgeon. Generally, open rhinoplasty technique is preferred in people who have advanced nose deformity or who have had a different nose aesthetic operation before. The biggest advantage of the open technique is that the viewing angle is wider. However, the healing process is longer and problems such as edema and bruising after the operation are larger. In another technique, closed rhinoplasty, the incision is adjusted to remain in the nostrils. The surgeon's field of vision is less, but the recovery time is shorter and there are no suture marks after the operation. The closed rhinoplasty technique is generally preferred for the correction of smaller deformities.
Nasal surgery without surgery
One of the preferred applications in cases where nose deformity is not very serious size is non-surgical nose aesthetics. In this method, also known as nasal filling, a dermal filler is applied to the bridge of the nose. Non-surgical nasal aesthetic applications, which are a very reliable option in the treatment of mild problems such as nose tip, nose contour problem, wrinkled nose appearance and nasal obstruction, are quite simple operations, but the preferred products for filling are completely reliable. In aesthetic applications made with this method, a new appearance to the nose, as well as a natural birth or falling with age, the desired image can be obtained at the tip of the nose.
Things to do after nasal aesthetics
Postoperative pain often occurs and therefore pain relief is applied to the patient without waiting for the effect of anesthesia to pass. Afterwards, medicines recommended by your doctor should be used without interruption. It is not recommended to stand up for a period of 4-6 hours after surgery. The first time you stand up, it is normal to experience dizziness and darkness, so it is recommended that you seek help from a relative. Blood leakage from the nasal area is normal both during and after surgery. This bleeding can be swallowed unintentionally, causing nausea and vomiting. For this reason, bloody vomiting or black stool from the blood the next day may be observed. If there is no nausea 6 hours after the operation, water can be drunk and juicy foods such as soup and buttermilk may be consumed gradually. The first few days are usually recommended to eat with liquid foods. It is normal for swelling and bruises to form under the eyes, around the nose and on certain parts of the face, and will gradually diminish. To prevent bleeding, the pillow should be kept high and no water should be drawn into the nose for the first 15 days. It is normal for the nose to remain blocked during this process. It is not recommended to wear glasses for several months (in some cases 6 months) to achieve the exact shape.
How long is the recovery time for nasal esthetics?
Although the recovery time varies according to the size of the operation in patients undergoing nasal esthetics, patients usually start to walk around in 4 to 6 hours and start eating if there is no nausea and vomiting after 6 hours. In some cases, patients are discharged on the same day, and sometimes they are kept under observation for 1 night and then discharged the next day. At the end of the surgery, pads are usually placed on the nose. These pads are removed 1-2 days later and the mold placed on the nasal back is removed approximately 1 week after surgery. Postoperatively, patients can return to work within a period of 1 week to 10 days, if no complications occur. Post-operative swelling and bruises are normal and diminish over time to a level that can be covered with make-up within 1 week-10 days. After one month after the operation, 75-80% of the edema occurs. The targeted shape and full recovery is achieved one year after surgery. During this process, it is normal to see edema problem that occurs in the morning and disappears later in the nose.
