Rhinoplasty is one of the most common operations performed by aesthetic surgeons in both women and men. For many reasons, shape distortion may be a problem. Genetic causes, traumas such as falling and bruising in the young age are some of them. The impaired nose may cause psychological problems or complexes in men as well as in women. Functional nasal aesthetic is intended to improve both appearance and healing.
Although the nasal aesthetic operation is more preferred with the appearance purpose, some of our patients also apply with respiratory complaints. In this case, it is stated that if there is a defect in the appearance, the respiratory problem may be remedied and this defect may have to be remedied. People who are considering to have a nasal augmentation operation should be older than 18 years.
One of the main purposes of rhinoplasty is to create a natural natural look that matches the face of the woman or man, but is not understood to be possible even if it is surgery, but is compatible with other parts of the face. The operation must be completely personal. Before the operation, the patient and the surgeon should be performed by the most appropriate nose-type surgeon for the patient, taking into account the patient’s expectations in detail.
We should take care of my health before the nose surgery. Regular sleep is always as important in nasal surgery as well. If there are medicines used, they must be notified to the specialist physician. The use of drugs such as aspirin may cause bleeding problems during or after surgery. For this reason, you should stop using this type of medication at least 15 days before the operation. If birth control pills are used at the same time, the medicine must be reported before the operation. Smoking should be stopped for at least 15 days before the operation. In this way, the wound is healed faster and smoothly. It is also very important that alcohol is not used in the same way. Nothing should be consumed, including water, for at least 6 hours before surgery.
Nose operation is performed under general anesthesia. It takes between 45 minutes and 1:30 hours. Postoperatively, nasal puncture buffers are used for an average of 1 to 3 days and an average of one week later the nasal cavity is removed. Usually, after completing a week, most people can return to their daily lives, social activities and jobs. The techniques used during the operation are divided into open and closed methods. Today, most surgeons prefer the open method, but there are those who perform the operation with the closed method.
There is no scarring problem after nose surgeries. Although nasal aesthetic surgeries are generally performed under general anesthesia, some aesthetic problems of the nose can easily be done under local anesthesia. In the case of mild nasal arthritis, nasal ruffling with closed method gives very successful results. In case of mild nasal obstruction, very successful results can be obtained with a small intervention under local anesthesia.
Postoperative patient satisfaction and success rates are directly proportional to the technique and the patient’s expectation of the surgeon’s experience in the main purposes of rhinoplasty. The success and patient satisfaction rate of an experienced surgeon is over 90 percent. However, in some patients the desired outcome may not be achieved after the operation and a second operation may be required. In such cases, it may be necessary for the patient to reconnect with the physician, to review the existing analysis of the existing problems, to re-watch the anticipation, and to decide on a new operation.
The timing of the second operation may vary with respect to the severity of the patient’s problems. The second intervention may be needed in a short period of time after an obvious postoperative problem. However, it is usually more appropriate to wait a few months or even a year if possible for a second intervention.
Women or men who are disturbed by the nose may also negatively affect their daily lives, their academic successes, and their family life. Often, people with this prob- lem can experience extreme self-esteem deficits. There are people who do not want to go to work and who do not want to marry. Friendship may experience failures in family and social relationships because of the spiritual changes that this complex brings to the festival. It should not be forgotten that nasal aesthetic surgeries are not only physical changes but also positive effects on the psychological structure of the person who has undergone operation at the same time.
One of the most important issues and main purposes of rhinoplasty is that the physician who will do the operation about what type of nose should be and decide the physician who will do the surgery together and understanding each other. It should be kept in mind that although the ideal situation is a very natural nose type suitable for the facial structure of the patient, some patients may require some types of nose which are obviously nontrained aesthetics. Some people like the raised nose, the raised nose, and the upright nose, while some people prefer the nasal type, which is nasal elevated and flat on the back.
One thing to be aware of when performing this operation is that it should be remembered that there may be different nose types and approaches in women and men. A more masculine type of nose should be considered more masculine in men when a feminine nose type is planned for women. The nose and lip and nose angles in the surgery show some differences in women and men. Again, the back of the nose is slightly curved and flat is different in women and men. Men or women who are going to make a nose aesthetic can sometimes say that they want a similar nose by coming to a photograph of someone else in their hands.
Outcomes of the Surgery
Another important issue in nasal surgery is that some patients want to see pre-operative and post-operative outcomes in various computer programs. Some surgeons use this method to show their patients to the post-operative probable outcome screen. Many surgeons disagree with this view and do not show photos of the patient after the surgery. At this stage, the patient’s thoughts and evaluations may be taken into consideration by showing the patient before and after other patient photos, perhaps similar to the patient.
However, post-operative photography of the patient itself can lead to disappointments in many patients. For this reason, it is not right to show the post-operative images of the patient with various computer applications. The purpose of the nasal aesthetic operation is to create a normal nose consistent with the general facial character of the patient in terms of the size of the normal respiratory function, but patient expectations should be taken into consideration, but aiming to create a pleasant nose in the natural lines, if possible, without escaping exaggeration.
