What is Rhinoplasty?
Nose aesthetics, the most popular aesthetic surgery, is performed to create a beautiful nose that complements the face and is liked by the person and his or her surroundings. Natural-looking noses that can fully fulfill the functions of the nose have been preferred in rhinoplasty in recent years. Before undergoing rhinoplasty, it is critical for the patient to question their own expectations, correctly express what they want by consulting an experienced doctor, and then decide on the best nose structure and surgery method together with the doctor. In general, aesthetic nose surgeries are performed because the nose shape is unappealing.
Rhinoplasty can be performed on anyone who has a desire for a nose, as long as their health condition allows it. Nasal aesthetics can be performed to address issues such as an arched nose, a long nose, a low nasal tip, nostril size, or asymmetry. Your nose size can be increased or decreased, large nostrils can be reduced, the shape of the nose tip can be changed, and the angles of the nose with the forehead and lips can be corrected with aesthetic nose surgery. During this procedure, cartilage and bone curvatures that cause breathing problems can also be corrected. Aside from that, nasal aesthetic surgeries are performed to correct deformities caused by various traumas such as accidents and impacts. Or, as a result of these traumas, reconstruction of the nose may be required.
In general, rhinoplasty techniques are classified as either open technique or closed technique surgery. Depending on the circumstances, open and closed techniques have advantages and disadvantages.
People who want to have rhinoplasty usually make a choice between a plastic surgeon and an otolaryngologist. Although functional nose surgery appears to be the domain of otolaryngologists, rhinoplasty, and plastic surgeons, it can be successfully performed by experienced surgeons from both fields.
The patient who decides to have rhinoplasty should express clearly what he or she wants to change about his or her nose, and the doctor should provide the patient with detailed information about the procedures that can be used. In this regard, the physician can show the patient how the post-operative appearance will be approximated by using existing technological 2D and 3D visualization tools. A plastic surgeon can also provide a comfortable solution for breathing problems through the nose. Here, the patient's preference is important.
