Nose surgery is one of the most applied surgical procedures in the world. Since the nose is in the middle of the face and makes an effective contribution to the beauty of the face, the internal and external deformities of the nose, which are found to be aesthetically problematic and also cause health problems, are corrected.
What is Nose Surgery?
Nose surgery operations are planned with the approach that prioritizes the psychology of the patient, without leaving comfort in the healing process and with the awareness that facial beauty is a whole.
Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty surgery, is the aesthetic surgery performed to reshape the nose. In these operations, the nose may be enlarged or reduced; the angle of the nose with the upper lip can be varied; the position of the tip of the nose can be changed or any problems caused by a blow to the nose, defects such as innate aesthetic image can be corrected.
During rhinoplasty, nasal aesthetics, the surgeon makes incisions into the nose or upper scalp using different techniques to access the cartilage and bone supporting the nose. Incisions, ie, incisions, are usually made into the nose as much as possible to make them invisible after surgery. Depending on the desired result, some bones and cartilages may be removed or tissue may be added (from another part of the body or using a synthetic filler). Final arrangements are made after the surgeon rearranges and reshapes the bone and cartilage, that is, after adjusting to the structure of the nose.
If necessary, a splint may be placed outside the nose to assist in the recovery period to support the newly formed nasal structure. The term rhinoplasty is already derived from the word “rhinoplastic” which means “changing the shape of the nose”. The technique primarily involves access to the bone and cartilage support of the nose. So this is achieved only through incisions in the nose, where we do not see. In some cases, an incision is made into the skin area that separates the nostrils. Subsequently, the underlying bone and cartilage are reduced, increased or rearranged to form a newly formed structure. For example, if the tip of the nose is too large, the surgeon can shape the cartilage in this area and reduce its size.
If the nasal bridge is high and protruding, this can be reduced, ie rasped, to give a more pleasing profile. If any part of the nose looks disproportionately small, cartilage or soft tissue grafts may be inserted to better accommodate the entire face. The angles of the nose associated with the upper lip or forehead can also be changed by further shaping the nose support structure.
The textures are then redrawn on the new frame and the incisions are closed. A small plastic splint can be applied out of the nose to minimize bloating and help maintain the new shape while the nose heals. In the nose, a soft absorbent material, i.e. a tampon, may be used to maintain softness along the dividing wall of the air passages called the septum. Alternatively, soft nasal supports may be placed that allow post-operative nasal breathing. But these are all fictions that vary from patient to patient and cannot be done necessarily. Even a minor correction to the nose can make a difference in overall facial alignment.
Most patients report little pain after surgery, or any discomfort is easily controlled with mild pain medication.
