What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to make changes to the structure of the nose for both aesthetic and functional reasons. Whether addressing congenital deformities or those acquired later in life, the procedure aims to correct shape anomalies, adjust the size of the nose, and address issues with the nasal tip or bridge. Additionally, it can be employed to alleviate breathing difficulties.

Who is the Right Candidate?

Rhinoplasty is perfect for individuals seeking a more harmonious and balanced facial profile through nasal aesthetic adjustments. Besides cosmetic concerns, it’s also recommended for those experiencing breathing challenges due to traumas or congenital deformities. However, candidates considering this operation should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations about the outcome.

Preoperative Consultation

The preoperative consultation is one of the most critical stages in the rhinoplasty process. During this session, the patient’s desires, expectations, and concerns are discussed. Dr. Harun Acıpayam evaluates the patient’s facial structure to determine the most suitable nose aesthetics. This careful preparation ensures patient satisfaction with postoperative results.

The Procedure

Performed under general anesthesia, a rhinoplasty typically lasts between 2-3 hours. During the surgery, incisions are made inside or outside the nose, facilitating the desired alterations. After the procedure, nasal packs and a supportive external cast are applied to the nose.

The Procedure

This specialized rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and might involve reducing the nasal bridge, refining the nasal tip, and making slight alterations to the nostrils. Precise techniques are used to ensure the desired upturned and refined appearance is achieved while maintaining natural-looking results.

Postoperative Process

After the surgery, patients can expect some swelling and bruising, which will typically subside within a week or two. An external cast may be applied to support the new shape, and this is usually removed after a week. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and follow post-operative care guidelines closely to ensure optimal healing.
