Rhinoplasty, sometimes known as a nose job, is a procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty is the most common plastic surgery procedure. Rhinoplasty can be used to increase or decrease the size of the nose. It is possible to alter the tip of the nose. It is possible to correct a bridge on the nose. Rhinoplasty might help you breathe better if you have a breathing problem. A change in the shape of the nose can dramatically transform and improve the appearance of the face. The most critical aspect is that the nose looks natural after the procedure. *Rhinoplasty can be done beyond the age of 18. It is not recommended to have it before the completion of bone development. For this procedure, there is no upper age limit. It can be done in the elderly if the patient’s general condition is satisfactory.
Closed (No Scar) Rhinoplasty: In closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made from inside the nostrils, so there are no visible scars. The interior of the nose is stitched with dissolvable stitches that are not removed.
Open Rhinoplasty: In open rhinoplasty, an incision is made between the two nostrils (columella) and the skin is elevated. The surgery is then completed, and the wound is closed. Only a small scar between the nostrils remains as a result of procedure, and it fades away in 1-2 months. *In Turkey, the rhinoplasty method used is determined by the shape of the patient’s nose and the approach preferred by the practitioner. The bones that make up the nose are broken and/or rubbed, and cartilages are cut, removed, thinned, and sometimes added during rhinoplasty surgery. Tools like osteotom and rasp are utilized for medical intervention on the nose. Certain portions of the nose can be fitted with cartilages if necessary. The septum, ears, and ribs are all good places to get these cartilages. In such circumstances, the patient is informed before to the procedure.
