Why Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is the process of changing the structure of your nose to improve your image or breathing. Rhinoplasty is one of the most demanded cosmetic and plastic operations. One of the main reasons for this is that the face is the most socially prominent part of the human body and the nose is the most critical part of the face. For this reason, the nose can negatively affect a person’s image, self-confidence and consequently personal and social life. It is important not to underestimate the psychologically important benefits of rhinoplasty performed only aesthetically.

Rhinoplasty Techniques

There are various methods and techniques for rhinoplasty surgery.

Closed rhinoplasty is the most commonly used technique. The incisions are hidden inside the nose so that they are not visible from the outside. When the surgeon gently lifts up the soft tissue, the bone and cartilage become accessible so that he can make the necessary changes.


For open or closed rhinoplasty, the technical methods used after the internal structure is visible are similar. Closed rhinoplasty has many advantages as it is less invasive. These advantages include reduced nasal tissue irritation and the possibility of reduced nasal support, less postoperative edema and detectable scarring, less time in the operating room and faster postoperative recovery.

Open rhinoplasty is used for patients who need more extensive procedures. Your surgeon will make incisions in the skin between your nostrils under your nose. This area is called the columella. Your skin is then lifted to reveal the inside of the nasal cavity. This allows your surgeon to perform the necessary contouring.


Open rhinoplasty may be required when extensive grafting is required or revision surgery is needed. If you have problems such as collapses in your nose, genetic structural disorders or deformities caused by accidents, open rhinoplasty will be more suitable for you.

Postoperative edema is normally expected to disappear within 3-4 weeks.

In rhinoplasty, it is important whether the cartilage and bone tissue in the nose has completed its development rather than the age limit. This period can be completed at the age of 20 in some individuals, while in some individuals it can last until the age of 25.

It may take 12-14 days to remove the plaster and dressings.

Depending on the complexity of the operation and the procedure, it may take two to four hours.

During rhinoplasty surgery, the patient is under general anesthesia. In other words, the patient does not feel any pain or ache. However, the post-operative process is another matter. After the operation, the patient may experience a certain pain, pain or discomfort. Although the intensity and duration of pain, pain and discomfort vary from patient to patient and the nature of the surgery performed, it is possible to control all these problems with medications after a good and trouble-free surgery.

During rhinoplasty surgery, surgical incisions are made in the skin and each incision in the skin leaves a scar at a certain rate and in varying sizes. However, there are certain surgical techniques to hide these incisions or make them less noticeable. If the surgical incisions have healed properly and healthily, and there has been no infection or similar problems during the healing of the wounds, there is a low chance of scars that can be perceived by the eye. If the surgery was performed by a skilled surgeon, it will be very difficult even for a trained eye to notice the scars.
