    Is There a Certain Age Limit for Surgery?

    It is preferred that the surgery be postponed until the end of adolecence. The appropriate age is around 16-17 years for young girls and a little older for boys.

    Who Are The Most Suitable Candidates For Aesthetic Nose Surgery?

    Aesthetic nose surgery can beautify your appearance and increase your self-confidence.

    It can also be applied to those who have functional problems. However, this does not mean that surgery will necessarily change your image to match your imagined facial appearance, and that other people will treat you differently after surgery.

    Are There Risks to the Surgery?

    If rhinoplasty is performed by an experienced otolaryngologist, complications (undesirable results) are rare and usually minor. However, there is always the possibility of complications. These are; infection, nosebleed, or a reaction to anesthesia. After surgery, cracked small capillaries may appear as very fine red dots on the surface of the skin. In aesthetic nose surgery, there is no visible surgical scar.

    How Is Surgery Planning Made?

    First meeting, the surgeon will ask you how you want your nose to look like, examine the structure of your nose and face, and explain the possibilities for you. The structure of your nasal bones and cartilages, the shape of your face, the thickness of your skin, your age and your expectations are the main topics of discussion.

    What is Anesthesia Type?

    Aesthetic nose surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

    What is the operation like?

    Aesthetic nose surgery usually takes 4-6 hours. During the surgery, the skin of the nose will be separated from the bone and cartilage roof. The process of reshaping the nose will vary depending on the problem in the nose and the technique used by the surgeon. Finally, the skin will be adapted over the roof created. Most ENT Specialists prefer the open technique approach. In the open technique, a small incision is made on the vertical tissue band (columella) that separates the nostrils from each other. When the surgery is completed, a plaster splint will be applied on the nose to help the nose maintain its new shape. Silicone pads are placed inside the nose to fix the septum, which is the partition that separates the two airways in the nose.

    What is done after the operation?

    Your face will feel swollen for the first 24 hours after your surgery. You may have a sore nose or a mild headache. You can control any discomfort with pain relievers prescribed by your surgeon. For the first day, plan to lie in bed with your head elevated, except for going to the toilet. Applying a cold compress will reduce this swelling and make you feel a little better. Most of the swelling and bruises, if any, will disappear within the first week or longer. It may take up to 6 months – 1 year for some swellings to go away completely, which no one other than you and your surgeon can notice. During the first few days after surgery, there is usually a very slight leakage from the nostrils. You may feel a slight congestion in your nose for a few weeks. Your surgeon will ask you not to blow your nose for 3-4 weeks during the healing period of the tissues. During this period, you should clean your nose with nasal washes that you can buy from the pharmacy. If there is a tampon in the nose, it will be removed 4-5 days after the operation and you will feel much more comfortable. By the end of the first or sometimes the second week, all dressings and the plaster splint on your nose will be removed.

    When to return to normal life?

    Most patients with rhinoplasty can get up and walk around within two days and can return to school or work life that is not too strenuous one week after the surgery. However, several weeks will pass before you can fully return to your daily routine. Your surgeon will give more detailed explanations about returning to your normal life.
