Septorhinoplasty

By | October 11, 2019

Septorhinoplasty is the correction of the deformities of the structure called septum in the middle part of the nose which prevents us to breathe through the nose along with the nose job and leads to the curvature of the nose.

Deviation of the septum; congenital, later acquired or may result from trauma, the nasal cavity is divided into two parts of the bone and cartilage structure.

Operation Age

For the full development of the anatomical facial structure, the average is recommended for males after 18 years and for females after 16 years.

Pre-Operation Interview

First of all, your complaints from your nose and your expectation after surgery are evaluated.

The nose is photographed from 8 different angles and the possible postoperative image is shown on the computer

Preoperative and postoperative photographs of operated noses are shown.

Breathing status is examined in detail by using endoscopic device. If there is serious breathing problem, sinus film is taken. This examination is very simple and other problems (polyps, sinusitis, nasal flesh, nasal flesh and deviated septum, etc.) are detected in detail. These existing problems are corrected if any during operation

When you decide on the operation, my assistant will plan the operation day for you.

Preparation for Septorhinoplasty Operation Time

Aspirin and derivative drugs are discontinued one week before surgery.

It is recommended not to use the cigarette for a period before and after Septorhinoplasty surgery.

Women being mens at that time, there is no problem in having surgery.

Nothing should be eaten and drunk 6 hours before surgery.

He should be in the hospital about two hours before the operation.

When you come to your room, you will be given an oral medication if you wish and this will relax you.

Septorhinoplasty Operation Technique

Usually closed rhinoplasty technique is used (there will be no scar because no incision is made at the nose tip).

The cartilage, bone and soft tissue forming the nose structure are reshaped !! Where art and science meet. Low or excessive height at the tip of the nose, protruding area or missing area on the nose back, curvature of the nose, nose tip, nostrils are corrected to provide an aesthetic appearance.

The deviated septum (curvature of the middle wall of the nose) and the turbinate (nasal flesh) affecting the nasal breathing are intervened and corrected during the operation.

After giving a new aesthetic shape to the nose, special bands are applied to the outside of the nose and plastic splint is placed on it for 5-7 days.

No buffers are used.

Anesthesia Type

General anesthesia is preferred so that you do not feel and remember the Septorhinoplasty surgical procedure

Operation Time

It varies between 1.5-3 hours depending on the magnitude of the problem in the nose

Recovery Process

Depending on the operation performed on the nose, the patient is discharged on the same day or the patient stays in the hospital for one night.

Post-operative 3-4 hours Hilotherapy mask makes face swelling, bruising and pain less than old ice treatments. While the cooling process is kept constant between 15-20 degrees, our patients are very comfortable thanks to the masks used during the application.

On the first day, the patient is relieved by giving a cold application to the face (Hilotherapy for the first 3-4 hours and then a cold compress) and painkillers.

If the perforated silicone splint is used 1-2 days after the operation, it is taken, and you can take a warm shower without wetting the plastic splint on the nose. You will be given two different nasal sprays (one for 1 week and the other for 4 weeks).

The most swelling and bruising period (depending on the person’s structure and the technique applied) may occur 2-3 days after the operation, and then dissolve rapidly.

After 5-7 days of operation, plastic splints and bands are taken on the nose. And your nose is taped for a week with skin-colored tape, so that your edema is almost completely dissolved.

You can return to work approximately 7-9 days after the operation

The use of lenses can be started 3 days after the operation, the use of light-rimmed glasses 1 month later, and the use of heavy-rimmed glasses as sunglasses 3 months later.

If the nasal flesh and the giant septum were intervened due to difficulty in breathing, the nasal congestion was normal a few months after the operation. This is due to swelling and nasal swelling.

Lightweight paced exercises can be done in two weeks after the operation and after two months there should be time to start swimming.
