Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) in Istanbul, Turkey Surgery

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 operations 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.

This surgery can be done by open or closed methods. 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.

Closed nose aesthetic surgeries are performed by making an incision through the nostrils. The biggest advantage of closed surgery is the invisible incision and better protection of the natural soft tissues inside the nose.

Expert Dr. Seckin Ulusoy frequently prefers open surgery in ethnic nose jobs and revision rhinoplasty surgeries, he 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?

Rhinoplasty, which was an operation preferred by women in the past, has become a highly preferred operation by men today. Our 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 nasal ridge. If the back of the nose is too curved and the tip of the nose is too much raised, a feminine (feminine) appearance appears.

In female patients, a slightly raised nose ( More rotation) tip and a slight curve on the back of the nose are desirable. The angle of the nose with the upper lip should be 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. 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.

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 longer.

Is An Intra Nose Pad Used In Nose Aesthetics?

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

Silicone pads are placed in the nose against the risk of bleeding during the operation and the 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.

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.

Depending on the developing technology and the experience of our Specialist Doctor 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.

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 aesthetic applications 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 is the average cost of nose surgery in the world for you?

The scope of the coverage varies according to the details of the insurance 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 surgeon’s experience and the number of satisfied patients in this regard.
