Anyone who has problems in nasal breathing and does not like the appearance of their nose aesthetically can be a candidate for rhinoplasty. It is very important to make a preliminary examination and to fully understand the expectations of the patient from the surgery when deciding for surgery. As a result of these evaluations, it may be possible to detect situations that will prevent surgery and not to perform the surgery.
How is it done?
Nose aesthetic surgery can be performed with two different approaches, open and closed. The open approach is generally preferred in patients who have a significant curvature in the nose or who will undergo significant intervention on the tip of the nose. After the nasal skin and intranasal mucosa are removed during the operations, necessary interventions are made on the nasal bone and cartilage structures, and then the nasal skin is laid in its place and a bandage is applied. Except for very minor interventions, rhinoplasty operations, which are often performed under general anesthesia, last between 1-3 hours depending on the content of the intervention, and it is recommended that patients stay in the hospital on the day of surgery, except for special cases.
What are the benefits?
Rhinoplasty surgery has many benefits in terms of both physical and psychological health. After successful surgeries, the person’s breathing quality improves and oxygen intake increases, while the body’s health level increases, while having a nose with the desired appearance provides positive contributions to his self-confidence and, accordingly, to his social and professional performance.
How are the days tracked?
The first day follow-up of the patients after the rhinoplasty surgery is usually done in the hospital, and the medicine and, if necessary, cold applications are carried out by the hospital staff. It is important that patients regularly use the medications recommended by their doctors after they leave the hospital and come to their control appointments at the specified times. In the early postoperative period, it is necessary to avoid excessive activity and hot environment and food in general. Patients who have undergone different interventions due to curvature of the nose, enlargement of flesh or sinusitis during nasal aesthetic surgery should use nasal sprays for cleaning and moisturizing purposes, for varying times depending on the procedure. Nasal dressings are usually completed within 10 days and bandages are removed. During the first two months after the operation, it is necessary to avoid sports and activities with the risk of blowing the nose. Patients are advised not to wear glasses for two months and to protect their noses from sunlight for three months, except in special cases.
