What is Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)?

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery operation performed to eliminate nasal health problems or to reshape the nose.
Rhinoplasty can eliminate many physical problems of the nose. Although cosmetic reasons such as a low nasal tip and an arched nasal structure are among the reasons for rhinoplasty operation, there are also congenital or acquired medical reasons that may cause breathing problems.

Why Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

  1. Rhinoplasty Performed For Cosmetic Purposes

Rhinoplasty can also be carried out for aesthetic purposes such as correcting an arched nose, narrowing or reshaping the tip of the nose, raising the low nasal tip, correcting the internal and external curvature of the nose, changing the width and correcting the asymmetry of the nostrils, correcting the width and asymmetry of the base of the nose.

  1. Rhinoplasty Performed For Medical Reasons

Rhinoplasty operation can be preferred especially for structural breathing difficulties , birth defects, nasal injuries, cancer or nasal damage due to an infection. There may be respiratory problems related to the airways of the nose. In such cases, surgical applications are considered as restructuring of the nose, while most of the rhinoplasty operations are classified as cosmetic operations.

How is the Rhinoplasty Operation Carried Out?

Rhinoplasty operation has racial and regional differences. There are also structural differences between men and women, and this should be taken into account in rhinoplasty operations. Although the rhinoplasty operation is mostly applied for cosmetic reasons, the person is assessed in terms of suitability for this operation by the plastic surgeon during the consultation.

During the pre-operative consultation, the nose structure is examined by the plastic surgeon. At this point, it is very important to clearly express the problems causing disturbance. During the consultation, the photographs taken with the Vectra device are modeled in 3D. This model is crucial for the doctor to demonstrate the procedure. It provides the opportunity to visualize the post-operative side profile or symmetry prior to the operation, and to analyze the problem correctly and yield the correct results.

There are many different methods preferred in rhinoplasty operations. In operations performed under general anesthesia, steps for the appropriate method are followed.

What Are the Rhinoplasty Methods?

Preservation Rhinoplasty

What is Preservation Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty operations that preserve the dorsum of the nose, or the nasal bone, are called Preservation Rhinoplasty. The goal here is to solve the nasal problems while preserving the natural structure of the nose. The upper part of the person's natural nasal dorsum, or the bone and cartilage structure, is not broken. Small incisions are made in the lower part of the existing bones and cartilages and the excess is removed. In this way, the arch of the nose is corrected.

In preservation rhinoplasty, the healing process is more rapid as the tissue integrity is not disrupted. Owing to this tissue integrity, there is no change in the tip of the nose and the muscle structure is preserved in the same way. Although the priority in preservation rhinoplasty is to correct the arch of the nose, it also makes breathing more comfortable as the airway channels will also be opened after this procedure.

How is Preservation Rhinoplasty Carried Out?

During the pre-operative consultation, the nasal structure is examined by the plastic surgeon. At this point, it is very important to clearly express the complaints. During the consultation process, the photographs taken with the Vectra device are modeled in 3D. This model is important for the doctor to demonstrate the procedure that will be performed. It provides the opportunity to visualize the post-operative profile or symmetry before the operation, and to analyze the problem correctly and yield the correct results.

In these open or closed surgeries, corrections are carried out on the tissue, cartilage and bones. The technique that will be used in the operation depends on the nasal structure of the person. The nasal arch, hump, and crookedness in the bone/cartilage are surgically corrected.

Who Can Get Preservation Rhinoplasty?

  • For those with a drooping nose shape
  • Those who have a thick nasal structure
  • Those who have a bifid or crooked nasal tip
  • Those with an arched nose

Septorhinoplasty

What is Septorhinoplasty?

Septorhinoplasty, which is among the cosmetic nose surgeries, is the name given to the operation performed mainly to change the external shape and size of the nose. If the septum, the wall between the two nostrils, is deviated or bent, it may not be pleasing to individuals in terms of both health and the cosmetic appearance. Septorhinoplasty operation is performed to help and correct breathing, and remove bone deviations and protrusions.

How is Septorhinoplasty Carried Out?

During the pre-operative consultation, the nasal structure is examined by the plastic surgeon. At this point, it is very important to clearly express the complaints. During the consultation process, the photographs taken with the Vectra device are modeled in 3D. This model is important for the doctor to demonstrate the procedure that will be performed. It provides the opportunity to visualize the post-operative profile or symmetry before the operation, and to analyze the problem correctly and yield the correct results.

Septorhinoplasty is a 2 to 4 hour operation performed under general anesthesia. In these closed or open operations corrections are carried out on the tissue, cartilage and bones. The technique that will be used in the operation depends on the nasal structure of the person. In cartilage and bone revision, deficient or excess tissues are corrected by surgically working between the nasal skin and the cartilage-bone skeleton. Then, the desired shape is obtained by reshaping the bone and cartilage with various surgical procedures.

Who Can Get Septorhinoplasty?

Septorhinoplasty, which can also be performed for cosmetic purposes, is mostly applied to people who have respiratory problems. The most common respiratory problems are:

  • Dry mouth due to nasal crookedness
  • Noisy breathing
  • Snoring
  • Fatigue due to breathing problems
  • Acute post-nasal drip
  • Frequent sneezing and runny nose

What Are the Purposes of Septorhinoplasty?

  • Treating respiratory problems
  • Ensuring proper breathing through the nose instead of the mouth
  • Correcting inverted or everted nose tips
  • Reshaping the cartilage
  • Correcting the bridge of the nose
  • Fixing fractures/cracks in the nasal bone or cartilage

Revision Rhinoplasty

If you couldn't obtain the best results with the first Rhinoplasty operation, all you need is a Revision Rhinoplasty.

What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty, also known as secondary rhinoplasty or second rhinoplasty, is performed when satisfactory results could not be obtained from the previous rhinoplasty and to correct the mistakes made in the previous rhinoplasty operation.

The aim is to restore the normal nasal structure to facilitate the air flow through the nose. Therefore, this operation is directly related to the shape and function of the nose. Thus, improving nasal functions with revision rhinoplasty allows breathing easier after the procedure. As this operation aims to correct previous operations, it may be more complex than a regular rhinoplasty operation.

How Is Revision Rhinoplasty Carried Out?

During the pre-operative consultation, the nasal structure is examined by the plastic surgeon and information is obtained about the operation that the patient has previously undergone. At this point, it is very important to clearly express the complaints. During the consultation process, the photographs taken with the Vectra device are modeled in 3D. This model is important for the doctor to demonstrate the procedure that will be performed. It provides the opportunity to visualize the post-operative profile or symmetry before the operation, and to analyze the problem correctly and yield the correct results.

Revision rhinoplasty is a 2 to 4 hour operation performed under general anesthesia. In these closed rhinoplasty or open rhinoplasty operations revisions are carried out on the tissue, cartilage and bones. The technique that will be used in the operation depends on the nasal structure of the person. In cartilage and bone revision, deficient or excess tissues are corrected by surgically working between the nasal skin and the cartilage-bone skeleton. Then, the desired shape is obtained by reshaping the bone and cartilage with various surgical procedures. Some additional procedures may be required in revision rhinoplasty. These may include removal of cartilage or bone, removal of subcutaneous dermis tissue, or injection of adipose tissue.

Who Can Get Revision Rhinoplasty?

Revision rhinoplasty may be suitable for those who have one or more of the following problems in their nose:

  • An excessively narrowed and pinched nasal tip,
  • Defects and asymmetry in the nostrils,
  • Creases on the nasal wings,
  • A curved nose tip,
  • A crooked nose,
  • Disproportion in the length of the nose,
  • Narrowing of the nasal bridge,
  • Difficulty in breathing,
  • The hump that reappears on the dorsum of the nose,
  • A collapsed or excessively carved appearance of the nose after surgery,
  • Dissatisfaction with previous rhinoplasty results.

When Can Revision Rhinoplasty Be Carried Out?

Revision rhinoplasty can be carried out at least one year after the first rhinoplasty operation, because the recovery and improvement process of the nose continues for one year after the operation.

Will the Revision Rhinoplasty Leave A Scar?

In revision rhinoplasty, closed surgical techniques are generally used and as the incisions are made on the inside of the nose, no scar is visible from the outside. If the person needs open rhinoplasty, there will be a scar between the nostrils that is not very noticeable.

Tip Rhinoplasty (Nasal Tip Aesthetics)

What Is Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty?

Tip rhinoplasty, better known as nasal tip cosmetic surgery, describes the operation performed on the tip of the nose only. This operation focuses on transforming the tip of the nose and allows to increase or decrease the angle between the base of the nasal tip and the highest point of the nasal tip. While other cosmetic surgeries of the nose focus on reshaping the nasal bone, nasal tip rhinoplasty focuses on the tip of the nose and does not involve any interventions to the bones.

The thin end of the nasal cartilage can cause your nose to appear droopy, or the thick skin or cartilage at the tip of your nose; can cause the tip of the nose to appear round and misshapen. The goal of nasal tip rhinoplasty is to harmonize the shape of the tip of the nose with the dorsum and other parts of the nose and to keep the nose in balance with the face. To achieve this balance, the cartilage can be reshaped, repositioned or partially removed.

How Is Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty Carried Out?

Rhinoplasty has racial and regional differences. There are also structural differences between men and women, and this should be taken into account in tip rhinoplasty operations also. Although the tip rhinoplasty operation is mostly applied for cosmetic reasons, the person is assessed in terms of suitability for this operation by the plastic surgeon during the consultation.

Different methods can be preferred in tip rhinoplasty operations, just as in rhinoplasty operations. The operation can be completed as an open or closed surgery. In operations performed under general anesthesia, steps for the appropriate method are followed.

Depending on the person's nose structure and the desired appearance, this problem can also be solved with nasal fillers without the need for surgery.

What Are the Purposes of Tip Rhinoplasty?

  • Decreasing or increasing the size of the tip of the nose,
  • Increasing or decreasing the angle of the nasal tip,
  • Reshaping the nasal tip cartilages,
  • Increasing or decreasing the thickness of the soft tissue at the tip of the nose,
  • Reshaping the nose wings,
  • Reduction of the nostrils.

What Are the Risks of Rhinoplasty?

As in all surgical operations, risks may occur in rhinoplasty due to bleeding, infection or anesthesia. Moreover;
Excessive nose bleeding may occur,

  • An infection may occur which may require antibiotic treatment or another surgery,
  • There may be severe and persistent pain,
  • There may be permanent numbness around the nose,
  • There may be a decrease in the sense of smell (occurs in rare cases),
  • Thick and abnormal scars may appear,
  • Shortness of breath may occur due to narrowing of the airways,
  • Swelling can be seen on the tip and side of the nose which persists for a long time,
  • There may be nasal deformity after the operation.
  • After the operation, one may not be satisfied with the new appearance and a second operation may be required.

What Measures Should Be Taken After Rhinoplasty Operations?

Procedure After Rhinoplasty

  • Ice should be applied for the first 2 days.
  • The nose should be protected from physical impact for 1 month.
  • Asymmetry is observed in the nostrils until 6 to 8 weeks after the operation. After full recovery, nostril symmetry of 90% to 95% is expected.
  • It is normal to have slight bleeding in the form of oozing or dripping after the operation. However, you must consult your doctor in the case of severe and continuous bleeding. Your nose may be blocked intermittently after the operation. This may continue for 6 to 8 weeks.

Possible Critical Situations After a Rhinoplasty (Nose-job) Operation

Edema: It may take 10 to 14 days for the bruising to resolve. After a month, edema and swelling decrease and disappear.
Stitches
: Dissolving stitches are used which does not require removal.
Showering
: In the first days after the operation, the hair can be washed without wetting the face.
Using Glasses
: Glasses light in weight can be used one month after the operation.
Heavy-framed glasses can be used after 6 to 7 weeks.
Resuming Exercise and Physical Activity:
It is recommended to gradually resume the exercise routine one had before the operation:

  • 1 week after the operation, 25 percent of the previous exercise routine and intensity,
  • 2 weeks after the operation, 50 percent of the previous exercise routine and intensity,
  • 3 weeks after the operation, there is no harm in exercising at a rate of 75 percent of the previous exercise routine and intensity,
  • After 4 weeks, one can resume their exercise routine in its previous pattern and intensity.
Sexual activity: It is not recommended for the first 4 weeks after the operation.
Alcohol Use:
Alcohol should not be consumed for 2 weeks after the operation.
Yielding the Final Results
: 80% improvement occurs at the end of the first month. Full recovery is expected within 6 to 12 months.
