NOSE SURGERY (RHINOPLASTY)

What is a ‘nose job’ (Rhinoplasty)? 

This is a popular procedure that modifies the shape and size of the nose, both for aesthetic reasons and also to correct structural defects that may cause a breathing problem. It is not recommended for children under the age of 15 until the nose is fully developed. Skin quality, as well as the size and shape of your nose and its relationship to your other facial features will be taken into consideration, and in some instances chin surgery may be recommended to improve facial balance. This can be performed at the same time. 

Who is a suitable candidate for nose surgery? 

One or more of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for nose surgery: 

· Your nose is too big for your face 

· There is a bump on the bridge of the nose when viewed in profile 

· The tip droops/is thickened or enlarged 

· Your nostrils flare excessively 

· Your nose is off-center or crooked 

· Previous surgery has created an asymmetric appearance 

How is the procedure performed? 

Rhinoplasty can be performed using either an internal or external surgical approach. The internal surgery approach allows all the incisions to be hidden inside of the nostrils. Therefore, there is no evidence of any cuts or scarring showing on the outside of the nose after surgery. The external (Open) approach to nose surgery provides the best exposure to the nose, and it is recommended when treating more difficult problems. It leaves a small scar under the nostrils. During this method small incisions are made inside the nose, and the skin is then separated from the underlying supporting framework of bone and cartilage. The bone and cartilage are then sculpted into the desired shape. This is sometimes supported with grafts and/or sutures, which are used to increase the strength of the nose and/or building up of the nasal bridge using the patient’s own cartilage or bone. 

Duration of operation - 45 minutes to 1 Hour 

Hospital stay - 1 night 

What to expect immediately after surgery 

Patients leave with a splint placed on the nose, which protects it and keeps the structure stable. This is worn for 5-8 days. Packing (or silicon tubes) may be placed inside the nose during surgery, which would be removed 1-3 days after surgery. Your face may be puffy with some bruising, often under the eyes; but this should disappear within the first week after the operation. 

It is important to understand that everyone will experience different results to others that undergo this surgery, and that as an individual patient, we as surgeons would work to your facial structure and aim for the most successful outcome. 

How long will it be before I can get back to my normal life? 

Recovery varies from patient to patient, however a 7-10 night stay is recommended in Turkey. Most patients can return to work after 1 week following this. The final results of surgery may take longer to be seen, and it may be up to 12 months before all the swelling completely disappears. 

Can nose surgery be performed without a scar? 

Scars are part of the healing process following an operation, however by following the surgeon’s guidelines in time the scars will fade and become barely visible.
