All You Need to Know about Rhinoplasty

Hello and welcome to Turkey, the world's health tourism center. Turkey, with its world-famous hospitals, health centers and doctors, is one of the most preferred countries in the field of health tourism in the world. In this, quality doctors and hospitals equipped with the latest technological devices, as well as reasonable prices, have a great effect.

People have had health problems throughout history, and they tried to solve them within the possibilities of that day. We know that medicine is one of the oldest professions in history. Likewise, people have had complaints about their own appearance. In both of these matters, our nose is one of our most sensitive parts. It is no coincidence that the most commonly performed aesthetic operation today is rhinoplasty.

I have been thinking about having rhinoplasty surgery for years. I don't have a problem in terms of health, but I have the arched nose structure that is common in the people of the Mediterranean region and I want my appearance to be better. Until now, I had never had the courage, but lately I have been doing research because it has been on my mind more. I went to hospitals, talked to doctors. When I saw where medicine came from now, my fears lessened and I decided to have the surgery.

I wanted to briefly share with you what I learned during my research, since I know that thousands, and even more, are in this situation like me. In this article, you will find everything you wonder about what is rhinoplasty for aesthetic reasons and seploplasty for health reasons, the differences between them, their types, surgery and healing processes. I have added a Frequently Asked Questions section at the end of the article. If you still have questions, if you leave a comment at the end of the page, I will try to answer as much as I can. Stay healthy.



What is Rhinoplasty? What is Septoplasty?

We can summarize the difference between rhinoplasty and septoplasty in one sentence as follows. While rhinoplasty is used for nose surgeries performed for aesthetic concerns without any health reason, operations performed due to health problems are called septoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is an operation performed to create a nose that is compatible with the whole face and the person, with an ideal breathing function. In general, aesthetic nose surgeries are performed because the nose shape is not liked visually. Rhinoplasty can be applied to anyone who has a desire for nose, if their health condition is suitable.

In cases where the nasal septum is in a curved position for various reasons and septum deviation is observed, the surgical operation in which bone and cartilage tissues are arranged is called septoplasty (septum deviation surgery). During this operation, the bone tissues that prevent breathing in the nose are removed and the existing cartilage tissues are rearranged accordingly.

Rhinoplasty Techniques

The techniques used in rhinoplasty are divided into two as open technique or closed technique.

In open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made in the lower part of the nostrils, and by opening this part, the surgeon gains a wider view. Since open rhinoplasty surgery is performed by seeing the bones, cartilage and muscles of the nose, it is performed with an incision starting from the inside of the nose, the invisible part. The advantage of open rhinoplasty is a much higher dominance of the nose. The operation is performed with millimetric measurements by seeing every part of the nose and therefore it is preferred more frequently around the world. Open rhinoplasty takes a little longer than closed rhinoplasty. In some cases, edema at the tip of the nose may take a long time.

The closed rhinoplasty technique is performed by cutting the inside of the nose. It is performed without lifting the nose with incisions made from the inside of the nostrils. Closed rhinoplasty operation takes a shorter time than open rhinoplasty and the healing process may take a shorter time. While it is possible to see and measure the nose directly in open rhinoplasty, this is not the case in closed rhinoplasty.

Your surgeon will decide which of the closed or open rhinoplasty is most suitable for you after the necessary evaluations.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Process

Rhinoplasty does not require any special surgical preparation. According to the rule that applies to all surgeries, if you are using blood thinners, you should leave it as recommended by your doctor.

Rhinoplasty does not have a sequential sequence of stages. In other words, each operation is determined for the anatomy and goals of the person undergoing surgery. Depending on how complex the surgery is, the surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia.

During rhinoplasty, surgical intervention is performed through a small external incision made inside the nose or between the nostrils just below the nose. The bone and cartilage under the skin are re-adjusted as desired by the nose surgeon.

The form of the nasal bones or cartilage can be changed depending on how much to remove from the nasal tissue, how to make attachments, the structure of the nose and the available material. If the wall between the two nostrils of the nose, that is, the septum, is crooked or twisted, it is arranged to correct breathing. However, this operation is called septoplasty, not rhinoplasty.

For minor changes, he usually uses cartilage from the deeper points of the nose or ear. In larger changes, cartilage from the ribs or other parts of your body can be used with implants. Afterwards, the skin and tissue of the nose are placed back and the incisions are sutured. The duration of the operation varies. While operations in which only the tip of the nose is changed take 30-45 minutes, a more extensive operation may take 2-2.5 hours.

Rhinoplasty Healing Process

After the operation, you can normally leave the same day, but in case of other health conditions, you can stay in the hospital for one night.

Internal dressings usually stay in place for one to seven days after surgery. The doctor may also tape a splint to the nose for protection and support. In order to reduce bleeding and swelling after rhinoplasty, it is necessary to sleep and rest in a position with the head higher than the chest. It is considered normal for the nose to be blocked during this period. In the same way, it can be seen frequently that there is a slight bleeding or that the accumulated blood continues to flow with mucus.

Between 7-10 days after rhinoplasty, 90 percent of facial swelling goes away. The bruises that occur after the surgery also decrease or completely disappear. People who have undergone the operation can return to their social and business life in an average of seven days.

What You Should be Careful about after Rhinoplasty?

In order to keep swelling and bleeding to a minimum after the surgery, you should avoid strenuous activities such as aerobics and jogging, taking a shower with a bandage on your nose and blowing your nose. In addition, it is recommended to consume fibrous foods such as fruits and vegetables to avoid strain, to avoid excessive facial expressions such as laughing, to brush the teeth softly to move the upper lip less, and to wear clothes that open from the front, such as a shirt.

In addition, glasses or sunglasses should not rest on the nose for at least four weeks after the surgery. Sunscreen with factor 30 should be used outside, especially on the nose. Too much sunlight during this period can cause permanent discoloration of the nasal skin.

Doctors say that avoiding sodium while eating helps the swelling go down faster. Objects such as ice or ice packs should not be placed in the nose after surgery. It would be best to take a week off from work, school or similar obligations for the post-operative period.

Rhinoplasty Prices in Turkey

Especially in recent years, Turkey has become the health tourism center of Europe, the Middle East and even the Americas. The biggest factor in this is the world-renowned doctors who are experts in their fields and the latest technology equipment, as well as very reasonable prices.

In the field of plastic surgery, Turkey is the 2nd country with the highest number of doctorates in Europe and 9th in the world. That's why every year, thousands of people from different parts of the world prefer Turkey for rhinoplasty and other operations.

Prices vary according to the content of the operation to be applied. A rhinoplasty in Turkey costs between 2500 € and 7000 €. The differences in these prices are due to the facilities and equipment of the hospital or clinic, and mostly the experience and competence of the surgeon who will perform the operation.
