Rhinoplasty

The nose, occupying a significantly large area in the central face, is the most important morphologic unit that contributes to the overall facial aesthetics. A nose, which confidently exhibits itself in a perfect harmony with the forehead, cheeks and chin; but does not disturb the eye with an artificial look, will surely make the whole face look elegant and attractive.

However, anatomical nose deformities that occur as a result of either our genetic nature or various kinds of trauma, impair not only nasal but also overal facial appearance. Furthermore, besides aesthetic look, the nasal disorder frequently disrupts the air intake and the ability to breathe normally, which is in fact the main duty of the nose.

Today’s modern aesthetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) techniques target to solve both of these problems. The goal is to achieve a well breathing nose, which is also aesthetically pleasant and is perfectly matching the patient’s facial units and wishes. Each patient is different from the other, so the contents of the surgical plan differ from patient to patient. After a thorough investigation of anatomic specifications, medical conditions and expectations of the patient, the operative plan is explained to the patient. The patient is informed about what is going to be done, where and how will the procedure be held, what will the patient face before, during and after the operation, the internal nasal packing and external nasal splinting durations, healing period, and things to pay attention in this course. An informed consent form is signed. After this consultation the patient is scheduled, and operated. The end of the operation is the beginning of the healing period.

In the early post-operative period, the nose is packed from inside, and casted from outside. Depending on the characteristics of both the operation and the patient, a variable amount of edema and ecchymoses occur at this time. The internal nasal packs and the external cast are generally removed on day 3 and 7, respectively.These periods are variable, depending on the extent of the correction. Resolution of the ecchymoses is generally complete after 5 to 10 days, where it takes longer for the edema to recover. Generally, gross edema resolves in two to four weeks, however it takes almost a year for the nose to gain its final shape.
