Nose Jobs / Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty or Nose Job is a surgical procedure that is designed to reshape the nose. It can be used to change the shape, size and proportions. It is commonly used for aesthetic purposes, but sometimes it can also be used to correct deformities and treat certain health issues such as birth defects, blocked/broken nose, difficult breathing etc.
The nose is composed of bone on top and cartilage tissue below. Rhinoplasty can change the structure of both these tissues as well as the skin surrounding them. The surgeon will consider the facial features of the patient and the desired results when planning the surgery.
Before Nose Job in Turkey
Surgeons need to review the medical history of the patient to learn about any conditions and previous surgeries. Use of any medication needs to be reported to the surgeon during the examination. An examination will be performed including blood test and physical examination of nasal and facial features.
During Nose Job in Turkey
The surgery can be performed inside the nose or through a small incision between the nostrils. Depending on the case, the surgeon will work on the bone and/or the cartilage. Minor changes usually don’t require an intervention to the bone structure. With major changes the surgeon might need to work on the bones and may use implants, cartilage tissue or bone from other parts of the patient’s body. After the changes are done, the skin is stitched and the healing period starts.
After Nose Job in Turkey
Patients can leave the clinic on the same day and continue resting at home. Head needs to be above the body to minimize the swelling. After the surgery the dressings inside the nose stay in for 1-7 days. A splint is placed for supporting the nose, and it stays on for about 7 days. The patient can get back to work in 3-7 days. Complete healing of the new nose takes 6 months to 1 year.
During the healing period minimal bleedings and nasal drainage of blood and mucus may occur. The doctors recommends avoiding certain activities for a few weeks. Sports that require physical activity, blowing the nose, some facial expressions are some of the forbidden activities. In addition, it is recommended to take baths instead of showers while the dressings are on, and to protect the upper lift while brushing the teeth.
