The nose is the most remarkable organ contributing to the beauty of the face. A nose that is compatible with a face will be enough to make a person feel good. Rhinoplasty is most commonly used for the treatment of various medical problems, but can be preferred for cosmetic reasons as well.
There are many medical applications of rhinoplasty, including:
- Treatment of breathing difficulty,
- Correcting congenital defects,
- Injuries due to nasal trauma,
- Reduction and lifting of the nose,
- Correcting the nasal arch,
- Widening or narrowing nostrils.
It is essential that the operation be performed by a specialist doctor under hospital conditions with appropriate equipment. The patient may need to restrict drug use prior to the operation. The surgery will be performed under general anesthesia, so the patient must fast for 6-8 hours prior to surgery. The operation lasts 1-2 hours.
The operation can be performed in an open or closed manner. In open rhinoplasty, there will be small incisions inside the nose and under the nose tip. In closed rhinoplasty, the entire operation is performed through the nostrils.
Your physician will decide the best method suited for your needs.
The patient will rest for 1-2 days after the operation. Cold compression will be used to minimize any swelling and bruising on the forehead and cheeks. It is possible that the patient will experience nausea and dizziness, which can be medically treated.
