With rhinoplasty surgery, deformities in the nose and narrowness in the airways are eliminated. Before the operation, the nose and the entire face are examined in detail. Nose-chin-eye compatibility is reviewed. Interventions to be made are explained and photographs are taken. The new nose shape created with the help of a computer program is shared with you. Obtaining an estimated post-operative image is important in order to understand your expectations. At the same time, you will be given a form containing informative information about the surgery to be performed and you will be given the opportunity to ask questions.
The surgery takes about 1.5 hours. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Necessary interventions are made to the cartilage, bone and skin of the nose as agreed with you before. In order to maintain the new shape, a plastic or plaster protector is attached to the nose skin. No tampons are usually not placed in the nostrils.
Painkillers are given for you to spend the first night after the surgery comfortably. Swelling and bruises are minimized by applying cold to the eyelids as recommended. When you feel good, you can go home. It is recommended that you rest and stay away from places where you can hit your nose. The sutures on the tip of the nose are removed 6 days after the operation, and the protector on the nose skin is removed 12 days later. Although the swelling and bruises on the nose will decrease during this period, the nose will take its final shape within 6-8 months.
The photos taken during monthly controls are compared with the photos before the surgery and the changes are shared with you.
