What is Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty)? To Whom It Can Be Done?
Nose aesthetics, or rhinoplasty, is the name given to surgical operations performed to change the shape of the nose. It can also be performed to correct the deviations in the septum (septorhinoplasty).
How is Nose Aesthetics Performed?
Rhinoplasty can change the bone, cartilage tissue, skin layer or all three, as deemed necessary. When planning rhinoplasty, the rhinoplasty surgeon will consider other features of the individual's face, the skin in the nose, and what the individual wants to change. He will develop a personalized plan for the candidates who are considered suitable for nose surgery.
As with all major surgeries, rhinoplasty carries various risks. Risks of infection, bleeding, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia are always present in major surgeries.
There are also separate risks specific to rhinoplasty. These include difficulty in breathing through the nose, permanent numbness in and around the nose, uneven nose, pain, discoloration or permanent swelling, scarring, septum perforation, and the need for additional surgical intervention.
Detailed information about these risks is conveyed by the rhinoplasty surgeon to individuals considering the rhinoplasty phase. Before proceeding to the planning stage of rhinoplasty, an interview is held between the doctor and the individual considering the rhinoplasty stage to determine whether the surgical operation will be effective.
During this process, the doctor will perform a complete physical exam, including laboratory tests such as blood tests. He will also examine the facial features of the rhinoplasty candidate and the inside and outside of his nose.
In this way, it is possible to determine what changes need to be made and how physical characteristics such as skin thickness or cartilage strength at the tip of the nose can affect the results. Physical examination is also important to determine the effect of rhinoplasty on breathing.
Photographs of the nose can be taken and images can be manipulated by the surgeon with computer aid to show what results are possible. The rhinoplasty surgeon will also use these photos for before and after evaluations, during surgery and for long-term reviews with reference.
It is possible to leave the hospital, usually 1 day after nose surgery. Edema and bruising usually start on the first day, but reach the maximum on the 3rd day and decrease to acceptable levels in the 1st week.
What are the techniques used in rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgeries are operations performed under general anesthesia and can take about 3-4 hours.
It can be performed as an open technique or a closed technique, depending on the medical condition of the patients. In the open technique, the incision is made from the anterior part of the nose, while in the closed technique, the surgery is performed with incisions made entirely through the nose.
Ultrasonic bone shaping devices (piezoelectric) are used in the reshaping stage (Osteotomy) of the nasal bones. With this device, while the bone is being cut, the tissues under the bone are protected, providing a more comfortable post-operative process with less bleeding, less bruising and less edema.
While shaping the external appearance of the nose, deviations in the nasal septum are corrected simultaneously.
After Nose Surgery
After the operation, a nasal silicone splint is placed inside the nose, and a thermal splint is placed on the nasal dorsum after taping. After an average of 5-7 days, the inner and outer nasal packings are removed and re-taping is performed. If it has been operated with the open technique, the sutures at the tip of the nose are removed at this time.
Recovery Period After Rhinoplasty
The recovery period of patients who have undergone nose surgery may vary from person to person. It can change within a week to 2 months after the nose operation. The full fit of the aesthetic nose varies between 6 months and 1 year.

I have performed many surgeries in the field of rhinology, especially septorhinoplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery.
According to the medical needs of our patients, we can use Open technique or closed technique rhinoplasty and Structural or Preseravation Rhinoplasty techniques.
By using Ultrasonic (Piezoelectric) Rhinoplasty techniques, we make the Rhinoplasty process more comfortable with less edema and bruising.
With endoscopic sinus surgery, we can perform surgical operations such as endoscopic septoplasty, turbinate surgeries, nasal polyp excision, tumor excision etc..

I completed my otolaryngology specialization training at the University of Health Sciences Ankara Training and Research Hospital.
I completed my specialization thesis with my study titled "The Effects of Septorhinoplasty Techniques and Poly-P-Dioxanone Plate Use on Maxillofacial Growth: An Experimental Study" in which I investigated the effects of different techniques applied in septorhinoplasty operations on nasal growth.
With my specialization thesis, I got the third place in the best oral presentation at the 41st National Otorhinolaryngology Congress in 2019.
