Understanding Rhinoplasty: What is it and Why is it Done?

Rhinoplasty (nose job) in Turkey is an effective aesthetic operation for solving nose deformities. With his experience, Dr. Seckin Ulusoy has been performing operations that give very successful results in this regard.

Only rhinoplasty operations are performed by our doctor, and most people leave our clinic very satisfied.

Face harmony is the crucial link with the external world and one of the most important limbs that emphasize the beauty of the face is the nose.

A deformity in the nose causes different psychological and social problems, and people prefer nasal aesthetics to eliminate these problems.

Although women often prefer aesthetic applications that are carried out in a very practical way due to today’s developing technology, men have aesthetic surgery to feel good.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) in Istanbul, Turkey Surgery

Rhinoplasty in Turkey is the name given to all procedures performed in line with their expectations and are not satisfied with the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery performed by Specialist  Professor Doctor Seckin Ulusoy practically helps the person to have a process without any pain.

This surgery is among the most frequently performed operations all over the world. As aesthetic applications change the shape of the nose, it is the operations performed for the people to achieve the nose structure they want in line with their expectations.

Rhinoplasty Before Nose Aesthetic Surgery

Before the operation, a preparation phase is absolutely necessary. In this preparation stage, the expectations of the people from the nasal aesthetic applications are learned and it is planned what kind of nose structure they want to achieve with the help of Photoshop and some simulations. This stage is very important for understanding rhinoplasty candidate expectations and achievable results.

Before the rhinoplasty procedures, which are surgical procedures, the patient is given all the necessary tests for the operation and if the patient’s disease history is available, it is listened to by the specialist. The patient needs to stop blood thinners like salicylic acid, general vitamins, and other supplements in preparation for the operation and has to share all the details with the physician.

After Rhinoplasty Surgery

Revision Rhinoplasty is generally a more complex surgery because the surgeon now has to deal with adhesions and inappropriately healed tissues.

It also makes it difficult to separate the skin and soft tissue from the cartilage in adhesions caused of previously surgery. In addition, we often need to reconstruct the nose as well, for this aim, very frequently, we need to extract cartilage from other sources (Rib cartilage).

We are planning a revision surgery at least 4-6 months after the first revision, but if this is to be the second revision (ie 3rd nose surgery), we recommend waiting for at least 8-12 months and time for the tissues to settle.

How Is Nose Aesthetic Surgery Performed?

Many different techniques or many surgeries can be performed together in aesthetic procedure to correct the nose shape. For this reason, Seckin Ulusoy, a specialist physician, first listens to the patient’s story with all ears ensuring that the correct method is performed with the right surgery, and ensuring that the patient satisfactions.

The operation, which is mostly performed under general anesthesia, can be performed under local anesthesia in some cases, with the decision of the physician.

The operation may be completed in an average of 3 hours, and depending on the patient’s condition, it may be necessary to stay in the hospital overnight. With the development of technology, rhinoplasty operations take place for a short time and very comfortably which will prevent the patient from feeling pain and swellings.

For this reason, you can make a safe operation decision and have a meeting with Specialist Doctor Seçkin Ulusoy and perform a safe treatment process.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Techniques

Two different techniques are used that are widely preferred and are successful in individuals. These techniques, which are preferred by our distinguished Ulusoy specialist doctor, help to complete rhinoplasty operations.

Common Rhinoplasty Goals: Addressing Functional and Cosmetic Concerns

If there is a deformity in the person’s nose, the suitability for the operation is checked. In this process, it is also important that the patient’s bone development is completed and of age.

It is an operation that is applied safely to everyone, regardless of male or female and is among the most widely preferred cosmetic surgery today.

Although the success of the operation and whether the patient is suitable or not is related, it is not appropriate in some cases. It is not correct to operate on these patients, people with psychological disorders and bleeding disorders.

What are the advantages of cosmetic nose surgery in Turkey?

•Choice for plastic surgery choice clinics in Turkey is a high-quality cosmetic procedure that is highly preferred by many medical tourists all over the world. This is mainly because plastic surgeons in Turkey offer more favorable surgical prices and, therefore, have more surgical experience, as well as a high level of health professional training and hospital equipment in the country.

• If you have spent years unhappy with the shape of your nose, having surgery can increase your self-confidence. In many scientific survey studies, an average of 96% of these patients say that they feel much more comfortable and self-confident after surgery. In our clinic (Dr. Seckin Rhinoplasty Clinic), we observe that we have high patient satisfaction rates compatible with the whole world.

Types of Rhinoplasty Procedures: Open vs. Closed Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty can be done by open or closed methods. Closed nose aesthetic surgeries are performed by making an incision through the nostrils. The biggest advantage of closed surgery is the invisible incision ( Invisible scarring) and better protection of the natural soft tissues inside the nose. In open operations, a small incision is made through the skin in the middle of both nostrils. It is preferred in people who have a wide view of the doctor and have advanced deformities.


Expert Dr. Seckin Ulusoy frequently prefers open surgery in ethnic nose jobs and revision rhinoplasty surgeries. In primary cosmetic surgeries in Turkey, our in our plastic surgery clinic, generally applies the closed preservation method with an endoscope and ultrasonic devices in patients who will have the first surgery.

What are the differences between female and male rhinoplasty surgery?

Female and Male Nose Job Diffrences:

Rhinoplasty, which was an cosmetic procedures  preferred by women in the past, but nowadays become a highly preferred plastic surgery procedure by men today. Currently,in our plastic surgery clinic male and female ratio was almost equal to each other.

Desired features in men: Nose-lip angle should be less upturned than in women, a straight masculane nasal ridge. Otherwise, if the nasel bone is too curved and the tip of the nose is too much raised, a feminine (feminine) appearance appears.

In female patients: Slightly raised nose ( More rotation) tip and a slight curve on the nose ridge accepted more feminen. Mostly Turkish plastic surgeons try to achive nose rotation, the angle of the nose with the upper lip,  95 degrees on average for men and 105 degrees for women.

While the lines are more pronounced and sharp in male patients, the passages should be softer in female patients. But plastic surgeries in Turkey is a personal cosmetic procedures.  Sometimes, male patients may want only certain parts of their noses to be corrected. They don’t want much change. For example; Just like removing the nasal bridge or lifting the low nasal tip very slightly. Since the skin of male patients is thicker and oily, the planning of the surgery should be done accordingly.



The Rhinoplasty Procedure: Step-by-Step Guide

Depending on the developing technology and the experience of our Specialist Professor Dr Seçkin Ulusoy, the treatment process for rhinoplasty operations is easily completed without feeling pain.

Who Is Nose Aesthetic Surgery Applied To?

In aesthetic applications, patient suitability is important for the operation to be successful. In addition to the detailed examination and simulation analysis to determine whether the patient is suitable or not, the specialist physician also decides by listening to the patient’s medical history.

• We will perform your discharge from the hospital the day after the operation (In special requests, we can be discharged 6 hours after the operation, but in our practice, we recommend our patients stay in the hospital for 1 night).

• You will have almost no pain from the operation period, but there will almost always be limited edema and bruising, especially the next day. After 3-4 days, edema and bruises will be relieved and you will be able to breathe easily with the removal of your silicone leaflet.

• You can visit every part of Istanbul from the 2nd day after the operation.

What are the cons of rhinoplasty surgery?

• Relatively expensive. Insurance companies often exclude payments, but some insurers can meet if structural needs are corrected for medical reasons such as breathing problems.

• Since there will be visible swelling and bruising for the first week, you will stay away from the active work environment for 5-10 days depending on your workplace environment.

• Some effects of taking general anesthesia, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, etc. may be rare.

• It may take up to a year to see your final results and may not match your expectations.

• If your nose does not heal properly (or your surgery was not done well for the first time), you may need a revision rhinoplasty. Every rhinoplasty surgeon has a revision case. Depending on the scope of the problem, revision rhinoplasty can be minor or major.

What are the tips that can help the rhinoplasty healing process?

• Sleep on high pillows for 6 weeks after the operation, helping to reduce swelling.

• Try to lie on the back side positions, for this aim, we recommend traveling pillows.

• Follow a low-salt diet that helps reduce swelling at the tip of the nose.

• Apply a cold compress with ice cubes for the first 48 hours.

• Try not to blow your nose at least for 2 weeks as it may burst your stitches and increase your edema.

• Avoid strenuous activities for the first two weeks and sports that might hit your nose for four weeks.

What is Septoplasty, and Why Is It Performed?

The patient is satisfied with the appearance of the nose, but breathing through the nose is quite common. In this case, the inability to breathe due to conditions such as cartilage or bone curvature in the nose can create significant physiological problems. Such conditions can often be accompanied by concha hypertrophy, known as nasal flesh growth. In these cases, cartilage curvature and nasal flesh reduction applications can be performed together to correct the nasal air passage ( Septoplasty + Turbinate Radiofrequency). 

How is the healing process of septoplasty?

After septoplasty, there is a very short operation time compared to plastic surgery. In addition, the healing process is also speedy. In addition, there is no edema or bruising as there is no procedure for bone and cartilage tissues. After two days, silicone is removed from the nose, and the person can return to his country by plane if he wishes. Such surgeries are generally called functional nose surgeries or septoplasty. During these procedures, no change is made in the shape of the nose. However, during septoplasty, if the person wantsthe tip of the nose can be slightly lifted.

What is the price of septoplasty?

Nose surgery prices vary widely depending on the surgeon and hospital, but the average septum surgery is 50% lower than aesthetic nose surgery. Septum deviation surgery performed under general anesthesia costs between 1500 and 3500 USD in Turkey.

Rhinoplasty Risks and Complications: Understanding Potential Issues

Rhinoplastic surgeries are among the most common surgeries performed worldwide. As with all surgeries, they may have some risks and complications. The main risks and complications are anesthesia, bleeding during or after surgery, and infection risk.  

Rhinoplasty surgeries are generally accepted as low-risk surgeries. However, the most common negativity that may be encountered after surgery is that the person is not satisfied with the cosmetic results at the expected rate. In these cases, it can only be corrected with another nose surgery, which we call revision surgery. However, revision surgeries also have additional risks compared to the first surgery patients. 

The most common surgical reasons patients are unsatisfied after surgery are the formation of asymmetries, unwanted irregularities on the back of the nose, and symmetry disorders in the nostrils. In addition, in rare cases, the formation of an inside hole in the middle cartilage area, which we call septum, and eye-related problems are among the reasons that may be complications of the surgery, albeit rarely. 

What can I do to minimize the risks and complications of rhinoplasty surgeries?

The most important way to minimize all these risks and complications of cosmetic nose surgeries is to reach a board-certified, experienced surgeon. Because a skilled surgeon will operate on you with a good team in a hospital he believes in and trusts. In addition, the surgical equipment an excellent and experienced surgeon uses will be hygienic and of high standards. For this purpose, the essential point is to reach a doctor with good experience in aesthetic nose surgeries and many satisfied patients and talk to him about all the surgery details.

Choosing the Right Rhinoplasty Surgeon: Factors to Consider

Rhinoplasty surgeries are cosmetic surgeries that require 3-dimensional and intensive surgical experience. Rhinoplasty surgeries should also aim to increase nasal breathing function. In this respect, we recommend finding an experienced surgeon with a certificate to achieve a satisfactory result after surgery. Doing detailed web research beforehand and evaluating the surgeon’s results on people similar to your nose can be the most essential guide for you. Also, in the decision-making phase about the doctor,  I recommend that you carefully read and evaluate the comments received from his past patients. When you combine all these, you can request an online interview with the surgeon you intend to choose in the next stage. At this time, you should discuss your surgical expectations and whether they are achievable in detail. It is best to decide by evaluating all these in detail.

There are many successful rhinoplasty specialists in Istanbul and Turkey. One of the main reasons is that Turkey is a paradise for tourism, the highly professional and detailed work of hospitals and teams in health tourism, and the resulting surgical experience. In this respect, one of the most prominent rhinoplasty surgeons in Istanbul is Professor Doctor Seçkin Ulusoy, who has been dealing with rhinoplasty operations for more than 20 years.

Rhinoplasty Costs: Understanding the Financial Aspects

Mostly Insurance companies does not cover rhinoplasty when it is purely cosmetic operation but can help if structural corrections are required to alleviate medical deformity. Some Insurance companies may cover surgeries that help improve nasal function (septoplasty, nasal valve repair, turbine reduction, etc.).

The scope of the insurance coverage varies according to the details of the health policy. In this respect, if you wish, we can give you a provision (pre-approval) document to request a refund from your insurance company, but remember that companies usually do not pay, and we cannot provide a payment guarantee.

Other factors affecting the price are as follows:

In which country or region it is done
Is it the first surgery or revision surgery?
The quality of the hospital where the surgery will be performed
Experience of nurses and teams other than the surgeon who will undergo surgery
Open-closed surgery the technique used by the surgeon in these surgeries and the time devoted to this surgery
One of the most important factors affecting the price issue is the board certify surgeon’s experience and the number of satisfied patients in this regard.

Since aesthetic applications are generally applied with a personal plan, the costs differ. Rhinoplasty prices vary depending on the technique of the operation, the experience of the specialist doctor, the location of the hospital where the surgery will take place, the level of deformity, and the additional operations that need to be performed.

Before aesthetic applications, you can make a free online interview (Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp) appointment with our specialist doctor, Seckin Ulusoy, to get detailed information about the operation process.

In our center, successful operations are performed for you, our patients, at the most affordable prices. Contact us now for information about 2024 rhinoplasty prices.

 Nose Job Turkey Price in 2024

It has been reported by many surveys that these rates are similar amounts, especially in Western European countries. However, Istanbul is much cheaper than most other countries in the world.

In Istanbul and Turkey price for our average first surgery is $4000, but in revision and some ethnic cases, who need cartilage grafting and more time-consuming surgery time, an additional cost can be added depending on the duration of the procedure. The prices above include the cost of the surgeon, anesthesia, and hospital.

Rhinoplasty Aftercare: Recovery, Healing, and Post-Operative Care

Depending on the condition of the thick skin, it may be necessary to give additional treatments before or after the surgery by consulting the Dermatology doctors. In cases with patients having thick skin, conducting liver and other blood tests allows for the implementation of Vitamin A treatment. This approach is often used and can be quite successful in refining the skin texture.

The amount of cartilage tissues left behind in men and women during aesthetic nose surgery varies. Post-operative bruising and swelling are more common in men, and the final state of the nose occurs more longer.[/vc_column_text]

Is An Intra Nose Pad Used In Nose Aesthetics?

The patient can be observed stay in the hospital, mostly clinics in Turkey, for a precautionary night after the operation, and this situation is entirely related to the patient’s health status.

Thin silicones which have breating holes ( Doyle nasel splint) are placed in the nose against the risk of bleeding during the operation and  pads placed 3-6 days after the end of the operation are removed.

There is a cast (Thermal nose ridge splint) placed on the back of the nose ( Nose ridge ) at the end of the operation. This cast is removed 5-6 days after the operation, and massage applications are started quickly.

When Is a Nose Aesthetic Patient Discharged?

After rhinoplasty surgery, the patient is generally hosted in the hospital to stay under observation for one night, based on their general health and comfort status.

If a nausea health problem is not observed at the end of 1-3 hours, the patient can start drinking water and eating.

In some cases, the patient demands to be discharged home on the same day, but our suggestion is a night stay in the hospital, and the specialist doctor should come to the controls during the recovery period.

Does Nose Aesthetic Patient Have Much Pain? Will There Be Any Bruising or Swelling?

The patient, who has had a comfortable process without complications in the operation, can return to work life at the end of 5-7 days, which is the recovery period. But in regards to less swelling technologies, he or she can come back to the daily routine even on discharge day.

During and after this period, mild swelling and bruising are considered quite normal and disappear spontaneously in a short time. After 4-5 days, the person’s appearance can be covered with make-up and these swellings gradually decrease next couple of days. After the surgery two week later a lot of people do not realize the patient had rhinoplasty surgery, but microwelling reduces time and ultimately results goes a couple of months more.

General anesthesia of the patient during the operation ensures that there is no pain. Afterward, it will be sufficient to take precautions against the possibility of pain by giving the painkillers recommended by the specialist physician to the person.
