What is Rhinoplasty (Cosmetic Nose Surgery)?

Rhinoplasty is a type of surgery performed to repair and reshape the nose. This surgery can be performed to change the appearance of the nose, or improve breathing, or both. Rhinoplasty can change the size, shape or proportions of your nose as well as correct birth defects, injuries, and even breathing difficulties. Since each nose is unique, each surgery is designed according to the patient's specific anatomy and goals. The distinguished surgical team of Sinapolist considers many factors when designing surgical strategies. Rhinoplasty is a challenging operation. The nose, which has a complicated shape, is located in the middle of the face, and even the smallest change can make a big difference in the look and function of the nose. The inherent challenge of this procedure makes it extremely important to select a surgical team that knows all the details of this critical and noticeable procedure.

In the first examination, your surgeon will consider your medical history, expectations, skin quality, and the strength of the cartilage that supports your nose before qualifying you as a good candidate for the operation. Managing expectations is one of the most challenging aspects of this surgery. The result may not be fully noticeable until a year after surgery, so patience and compliance are key to your desired results. Mental preparation is essential for this special surgery.

How Does the Process of Rhinoplasty Surgery Proceed?

Depending on the complexity of the procedure, a small external incision may be made at the base of your nose between your nostrils. Rhinoplasty is an outpatient treatment, so after a short recovery period, you will be going home. You will need to rest with your head up in bed to reduce swelling and bleeding during the post-operative process. In most cases, a splint is taped to the bridge of the nose for support and protection and remains for a week. You will see your surgeon many times after the operation and observe your recovery with photographs from different angles.

Rhinoplasty is a surgery that people often consider for years before consulting a surgeon, but it can be one of the most psychologically satisfying ones.
