Broken and severed noses were treated in Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome and Ancient India. This was the first experience in reconstructive rhinoplasty, which formed the basis of modern plastic surgery. One of the earliest references to treating a broken nose dates back to 3000 BC.
The first technique for correcting a snub nose belongs to a doctor from Rochester, John Orlando Roy, who is considered one of the fathers of rhinoplasty. This glory was shared with him by Jacques Joseph, who was the first to formulate the main principles of corrective and reconstructive operations on the face.
Today, rhinoplasty is one of the most demanded areas in plastic surgery. Modern plastic surgeons are not only able to eliminate any damage to the nose, but also with the help of the latest technologies to give the nose perfect shapes, preserving the individuality and uniqueness of the appearance of each patient.
With a closed rhinoplasty, the doctor performs all incisions inside, and with an open one - outside the nose.
The use of a closed or open type depends on the purpose of the operation.
Closed type of rhinoplasty is always a more complicated option and requires a higher qualification of the surgeon.
To eliminate significant congenital or acquired defects, the doctor is likely to give preference to open rhinoplasty.
Both methods - closed or open rhinoplasty - have their pros and cons, and each will be useful in a specific situation.
Our medical consultants will take care of you during 1 year after the surgery. If you need any assistance, if you have questions, you can contact our staff 24/7. We will ask you to send pictures to see the progress 2 weeks, 2 months, 6 months and 1 year after the operation.
In the beginning, you will notice changes to your nose almost daily as the swelling goes down. Once the swelling has subsided, these changes are so minor that they are no longer noticeable.
Since the surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, you will not experience any pain during the operation.
In the first few days after the operation, slight pain may occur, but it can be well treated with conventional painkillers.
You should consistently sleep only on your back for a week and under no circumstances blow your nose. Sneezing should also be avoided if possible.

The living wage and salaries in Turkey are lower than in Europe, in addition, the government supports the health sector. Thus, rhinoplasty surgery in Turkey can be done without loss in quality and standards with prices much lower than in Europe.
Turkey is among the top three health tourism leaders in the world with over 2 million medical tourists a year. Experienced doctors together with a professional team take care of patients with quality and competence. Turkey ranks 17th in the world in terms of population with a population of about 86 million. Doctors have a lot of practical experience compared to other countries, which makes them excellent professionals. It is safe to have nose surgery in Turkey.
You save on costs, benefit from international quality and avoid long waiting times. In Turkey, you will be quickly assigned a date for rhinoplasty, while in Germany you have to wait several weeks. Another advantage is the short flight times from Europe.
ur contracted clinics offer the comfort of a 5-star hotel. Medical equipment meets the highest international standards. 600 clinics All over Turkey hold the JCI certificate, which demonstrates safe and effective treatment methods, structured working methods and comfortable conditions. For comparison, in Germany less than 10 clinics have this certificate.
There is closed rhinoplasty, where only a small cut is made on the nasal mucosa. The procedure is performed through the nostrils. There is also open rhinoplasty. Here, an additional cut is made on the nasal bridge so that the doctor can fold back the nasal skin and better access the bone. The scar is cosmetically closed and is at the beginning visible as a fine line. In the course of time, however, it will be invisible.
Rhinoplasty is considered to be a safe operation. Since the procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, rhinoplasty has the same risks as any other surgery. In very rare cases, there may be an injury to the tear duct, smell nerve or sensory nerves.
As expected, the haematoma and swellings will disappear within 2 weeks after the surgery. After that, you will be fully fit for social life with your new nose.
Although rhinoplasty can be performed on any patient over the age of 18, doctors agree that surgery is not advisable until the patient reaches the age of 20. At this age, bone growth in humans is complete.
Since the surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, you will not experience any pain during the operation. In the first few days after the operation, slight pain may occur, but it can be well treated with conventional painkillers.
You should start playing stress sports again 4 weeks after the surgery at the earliest. You should refrain from participating in combat sports, where there is a risk of nasal trauma, for at least 3 months.
A nose correction does not require any aftercare in the actual sense, but there are some points that you should pay attention to. For example, you should consistently sleep only on your back for a week and under no circumstances blow your nose. Sneezing should also be avoided if possible. Your attending physician will discuss the details with you.
Sunbathing, solarium, sauna and steam bath are forbidden up to 3 months after the operation! Strong heat has an unfavourable effect on the healing process.
As you can expect, the haematomas and swellings will heal within 2 weeks after the surgery. After that, you will be fully socially acceptable with your new nose. After about 6 weeks, your nose will have 90% of its final shape.
The healing process as a whole takes between 6 and 12 months. In the beginning, you will notice changes to your nose almost daily as the swelling goes down. Once the swelling has subsided, these changes are so minor that they are no longer noticeable.
Of course, you will be in regular contact with your doctor, who will be available to answer any questions you may have. At the end of the first, second and third month after the rhinoplasty, you will send photos to your attending physician so that he or she can discuss the progress with you. Our competent team is available for you at any time.
