What is rhinoplasty surgery?
Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic and functional surgery performed to change both the external and internal appearance of the nose. It is also called ‘septorhinoplasty‘ surgery, since the septum that divides the nose into two is usually intervened in rhinoplasty surgeries.
Why is rhinoplasty surgery important?
The nose is located in the middle of the face and is an important part of the aesthetic appearance of the face. Problems with the nose differ from person to person and are usually specific to the person’s facial structure. That’s why rhinoplasty surgery should be done by custom designing the person and the face.
What should be considered before rhinoplasty surgery?
While planning the rhinoplasty surgery, a detailed intranasal examination is performed to determine whether there are problems such as nasal congestion and postnasal drip. In order for the patients to have a healthy, beautiful and natural nose structure, photographs should be taken and nose and face analyzes should be done correctly before the operation.
What are the features of rhinoplasty surgery?
Nose aesthetic surgery is performed under general anesthesia. If the patient has additional problems such as chronic sinusitis, nasal bone-cartilage curvature (septum deviation) and enlargement of the nasal concha (concha), they are eliminated in the same session.
Closed technique or open technique?
In rhinoplasty surgery, the back of the nose and the tip of the nose are approached with the open technique or the closed technique. In rhinoplasty performed with the open technique, an incision is made on the lower part of the nose that will not leave a trace when it heals, while in the rhinoplasty performed with the closed technique, all incisions are made inside the nose. There are two points to note here; Each patient has different problems in his nose and the choice of open or closed technique should be made according to the problem in the patient’s nose.
What is applied in rhinoplasty surgeries?
Correction of the bridge of the nose, reduction of the nose, raising the tip of the nose, narrowing of the wide nostrils, and sometimes nose augmentation are performed during rhinoplasty surgeries.
Will there be swelling and bruising after rhinoplasty operations?
There is no rhinoplasty without bruising and swelling! Facial bruising and swelling are more or less common after every surgery. The presence of bruising and swelling should not mean that the operation was unsuccessful, and lesser swelling should not mean that the operation was successful. Motor tools (piezo, micromotor) used for the same purpose as conventional hand tools during surgery may cause less damage to the fracture for shaping the nasal bone. Intermittent ice is applied for approximately 48 hours after surgery; Meanwhile, the patient should lie in an upright position. The resulting swelling and bruising are mostly in 7-10 days. the day will pass.
Is a tampon placed in rhinoplasty surgeries?
Silicone plaques, which are placed in the nose and allow breathing and do not cause pain, are removed after a few days as air passes through their grooves.
Are stitches removed after rhinoplasty surgery?
I prefer dissolving stitches in the stitches used in the surgery, including the tip of the nose. Since it dissolves on its own, sutures are not removed and patients do not need to worry about this. Protective plastic plates placed on the back of the nose are usually removed after one week. Then, the back of the nose is briefly supported with tapes.
What should be considered after rhinoplasty operations?
Salt water solutions and moisturizing sprays are recommended for intranasal crusting that continues up to one month after surgery. It is important to keep the nose away from blows after the surgery. It is okay for patients who underwent surgery during the summer to swim after the surgery, but patients should stay away from direct sunlight for 3 months and use a hat and high factor sunscreens to protect from the sun.
The use of glasses should be avoided for 6 months after rhinoplasty, but titanium glasses with a weight not exceeding 3-4 grams are used in some patients.
It takes up to 1 year for the nose to fully heal and take its final shape. Despite all the factors that bother the patients such as swelling, bruises, crusts, and minor bleeding in the early period of the surgery, the patient will have a healthy, natural and aesthetic nose at the end of this period.
