(Nose Surgery)


What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, often commonly referred to as Nose reshaping surgery, is one of the most common and popular procedures performed to resize and reshape the nasal structure so that it fi ts with the other features to get an attractive facial appearance. As the nose is located right in the middle of the face, it has a natural bearing on the entire facial image of the person. It is probably the fi rst feature that distinctly presents itself, and having a perfect nasal structure is not only ideal for aesthetic reasons, but also helps the person breathe better. As such, Rhinoplasty Istanbul and Septoplasty Istanbul are two common surgical procedures sought by many who want more than just a “nose job”.

Details of the Procedure

What can you expect from Nose Surgery?
Nasal Surgery is not always a single, consistent operation that is performed the same way with all patients. It is not a “onesize-fi ts-all” solution at all. Rhinoplasty, Turkey surgeries have to be tackled in an individualistic manner where the right technique has to be employed to obtain the right results. People opting for Rhinoplasty do it for various reasons such as

  • To reduce or enlarge the size of the nose
  • To correct a bump on the nasal bridge
  • To thicken a nose or make it thinner
  • To correct asymmetrical nasal structure
  • To increase or decrease the width of the nose

In addition to all the above, Rhinoplasty is also preferred to remove cartilage or mucosa that block the airway in order for the patient to breathe more comfortably, or also for the addition of cartilage grafts to expand the airway.

Before Surgery

the operation so that the patient’s nose is shaped as per his/her wishes. Then these changes can be incorporated by the nose surgeon, Istanbul during the operation so that the patient’s expectations are met.

Details of the Procedure

The nasal area is similar to a pyramid composed of cartilage and bone structures which are in a very delicate balance with each other as well as the skin texture covering them. To achieve success in a nasal surgery, it is imperative to maintain this delicate overall balance after changes have been made to the nose. Utmost care is essential as the slightest change made on any part of the pyramid will affect the interconnected parts invariably.

Open Rhinoplasty or Closed Rhinoplasty?

Open and Closed Rhinoplasty are two techniques that are often compared with each other with an almost equal number surgeons preferring one over the other. Although from the onset both of these seem to be quite confusing, they are much similar than people realize.


In a typical nose surgery, Istanbul procedure, there are fi ve incisions made on different parts of the nose – four of them are made into the nostrils which are not visible, and the fi fth one called Truncolumellar incision is made on the lower part of the nose tip. As this is a place that can be seen from the outside, it is termed as Open Rhinoplasty. The visible incision usually faints over time until you fail to notice it permanently.

In essence, both open and closed techniques involve incisions made on the cartilage and bone structure that are very similar. However, only the Truncolumellar incision carried out in the open technique is quite convenient and practical in certain operations, usually those involving the nasal tip.

From my own experience, I believe the Open Rhinoplasty should only be performed if there is an incentive of it giving better results. To be pragmatic, I always ensure to do a thorough pre-operative analysis to evaluate the likelihood of the open technique to be employed or not. I personally believe that not every nose surgery has to be carried out with the open technique as it could reveal the nose structure easily. It is essential to carry out a detailed preoperative evaluation of the skeletal and cartilaginous structure of the nose, which is possible only if the patient has not undergone nasal surgery earlier. Thus if an incision is not planned to require the open technique, any best rhinoplasty surgeon in Turkey will tell you it is unnecessary to completely remove the skin of the nose.

Personally in my opinion, Open Rhinoplasty has a major disadvantage which makes the compatibility between the skeletal structure of the nose and the nasal skin deteriorate during surgery. This creates diffi culty for us in fi guring out how exactly the reshaped skeletal structure will look like after the nose skin sits on it. Another facet of the open technique worth noting is that removing the nose skin from the skeletal structure may slow down the post-operative healing period and increase the time of swelling.

Having said all this, there are cases I’ve encountered where it becomes convenient, or even mandatory, to employ the open technique. A few instances of Rhinoplasty Europe operations are more favourable with the open technique, especially those involving nose-tip incisions and extreme septum curvatures. Also, if the patient has undergone previous nose surgery, the open technique helps to easily evaluate the procedures performed in the previous surgeries.


Post-operative Care

Patients can stand up and go about their daily chores just a few hours after the surgery. However patients are not advised to start working until the plaster cast is removed, which could take about 6 or 7 days. Patients are usually called on the second day to remove the buffers. The passage of the swab and the sitting may take a certain time period, and it is recommended that the patient not blow their noses as well as avoid sun exposure and exertion. Mild painkillers can be given to the patient to facilitate comfort. Sometimes, massaging is prescribed for the patient as a post-operative treatment. Owing to its popularity, the Rhinoplasty Istanbul prices are becoming quite affordable for all.
