Facial Aesthetics

Rhinoplasty

Nose is one of the most important complementary elements of facial aesthetic composition. In some people, congenital nasal shape may be distorted or curved. The shape of the nose may also vary in ethnicity. In infancy or childhood, due to fall or any trauma, nasal shape may deteriorate over time. As a result of an incorrect operation due to breathing problems, deformities and collapses in the nose may occur.

Among the problems that may be seen in the nose in terms of shape,

- the nose to be curved or asymmetrical,

- arched back of the nose,

- large or long nose structure for face,

- wide nasal root,

- large nostrils,

- low nose tip,

- the tip of the nose is rough and amorphous.

These problems can be caused by bone, cartilage or skin structure of the nose. Nose problems can be corrected by rhinoplasty operation which does not appear to the eye or disturbs the facial aesthetic composition. When your nasal shape is improved, you look at the mirror with more peace of mind and you feel more confident. I observe this self-confidence increase in patients who have undergone rhinoplasty.

Nose is a functional organ. The most important function of the breath before the lungs are filtered, humidified. The curvature of the nose bones, the size of structures we call the concha or nasal valvular structures in the structure of the nose prevents the breathing function. Snoring, headache, insomnia, attention deficit, daytime sleepiness, can lead to situations such as forgetfulness. During the aesthetic operation, this type of functional nose problem is corrected and you have a nose that is both beautiful and fully functioning.

Today, the point of view of nose aesthetics has changed. People are now tired of the mannequin or artist nose shapes, the nose of which is evident from the anterior view, with the nostrils up, and the nostrils of the nasal back. Patients who apply for nasal surgery now want to have natural shaped noses, which are unclear. In fact, this is the right approach. The meaning of aesthetics is not naturalness or artifact, but naturalness and normal anatomy. For this reason, it is important to make personal aesthetic nose surgery. Just like a long nose in the face of a round-faced individual will be absurd, a more rectangular, a long percentage of nuts will disappear as a nose. Because the nose dimensions are directly related to the facial structure. Sometimes these relationships should be taken into consideration and small interventions may be required in the jaw and other facial bones during the nose operation. In an individual whose jaw is behind, the smaller the nose, the smaller the nose will still be in the face. In an elongated jaw, the nose is planned as large as possible.

Who should have nose surgery?

The operation should not be carried out before the age of 17 years. Although aesthetics and beauty concepts vary from person to person, some calculations have been made and some golden ratios and angles have been revealed in facial aesthetics. When we look at a person's face, if that person's nose attracts your attention, that person's nose is problematic. Either he's had surgery and he's failed or he really needs a plastic surgery. A normal nose-to-face is unimportant. Because it is complementary to facial composition, it is in normal anatomy. Plastic surgeons, but we can capture aesthetics by imitating this naturalness.

In the doctor's consultation, your doctor will examine you after listening to your wishes. If you have difficulty breathing, preoperative tomography may be necessary. Computer work to be done on your own face photo can be better judged by how a nose can be suitable for your face. This study is important both for your doctor to understand your wishes and to tell you what your doctor can do with the interventions that will be done to your existing nasal tissues. Moreover, the shape of the nose created as a result of the computer operation does not guarantee the shape of the nose that will be formed after the operation. Because of different details from the structure of the cartilage to the thickness of the skin, everyone's wound healing process and surgery results vary. In fact, the most accurate information about the results of the surgery will be shown by your doctor before the pre-operative patients can take a comparative photo review.

On the day of the surgery, blood tests are performed and the anesthesiologist examines you and decides whether there is an obstacle for the operation. It is necessary to stay hungry and thirsty for 6 hours before the nose operation with general anesthesia. For example, if the operation is 8 am in the morning, the night should be hung after 12. Surgery is done without general pain, without feeling any pain. With the development of surgical methods, swelling and bruises are seen to be much less after the nose operations which are done with less damage to the tissue. The operation takes about 1.5 hours. If there is an anatomical problem that causes breathing difficulty in the patient's nose, the operation time can be as long as 2 hours.

You wake up with a plastic plaster on the nose after the operation. Previously used nasal buffers are now obsolete. Self-melting or mid-hole silicone buffers are inserted into the nose. These tampons do not prevent you from breathing through the nose after the operation. Silicone tampons do not form pain when taken as in older buffers.

Almost all of the patients say that they have no pain after nose operations. So the nose operation is not a painful operation. The most important point is the application of ice to the cheeks for the first 48 hours after the operation. The bruising and swelling of the patients who applied ice for 2 days postoperatively are almost nonexistent. Ice application is therefore very important. You will be discharged 6-8 hours after the surgery by giving your medication. You can also follow the hospital for 1 night.

If the silicone nasal tampon is used during the operation, this buffer is removed on the 3rd day. On the 7th day your nose cast is removed. In the 2nd week, it is important to make sure that your nose skin is placed more smoothly and the swellings pass more quickly. After 3 weeks, the symptoms on your face almost completely disappear. At the end of 4 weeks, the nose reaches a more robust structure. Full recovery lasts up to 6 months. Six months after the operation, the operation is not understood by others and the nose is natural and the operation is successful.
