Rhinoplasty is a form of cosmetic surgery that reshapes and remodels the nose, giving it a more aesthetically pleasing shape.
Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that involves reshaping the nose. It’s the most common surgical procedure in the Turkey, and it can improve your sense of self-esteem, reduce your risk of health problems, and help you feel more comfortable in social situations.
While rhinoplasty can help you achieve a new look, it’s important to understand that it is not a cure for nose problems. If you have breathing or other issues, you will need to seek out other treatments.
The procedure can be performed for cosmetic reasons or to correct a deformity caused by injury. If you are considering rhinoplasty, there are some key questions you should ask your doctor before undergoing the procedure:
1. What is the surgeon’s experience?
The best way to find out how experienced your surgeon is with rhinoplasty is by asking him or her. You should also ask what hospitals and clinics they work at so you know they have access to the best resources. If your surgeon has been practicing for less than 10 years, he or she may not be as skilled as someone who has been practicing for longer.
2. What is your success rate with this surgery?
A surgeon’s experience and success rate can be critical to the outcome of your procedure. If you’re considering a surgeon who’s just starting out or who hasn’t performed many nose jobs before, ask him or her how many rhinoplasties they’ve completed and how their patients’ results compare to those of other surgeons in their area.
3. What methods do you use to determine the ideal size and shape of my nose?
The first step in determining the ideal size and shape for your new nose is making sure you have realistic expectations about what can be accomplished during surgery. For example, if you want a smaller nose but don’t want any scarring or other visible signs of surgery, then you may need to focus on non-surgical methods such as dermal fillers instead of undergoing rhinoplasty.
4. How long will it take to heal after my surgery?
The length of time it takes to heal depends on how much work has been done on your nose. If you have other procedures done at the same time (such as eyelid surgery), it will take longer to recover from all of them together than it would if you only had one procedure done at a time.
5. Will I be able to return to work right away?
Rhinoplasty can take anywhere from one day to two weeks to recover from, depending on how extensive your procedure was and how healthy you are overall. You should be able to return to work within a few days of your surgery if there were no complications during or after your procedure. If you have any bleeding or swelling after surgery, however, you may need more time off from work — possibly up to two weeks — until everything has healed completely.
6. What can I expect from recovery?
Recovery from rhinoplasty is different for everyone depending on your procedure type and any complications that may arise during or after surgery. You’ll need to avoid any strenuous activity for two weeks after your procedure so your nose has time to heal properly. Your doctor will likely recommend that you rest at home for a few days after surgery and avoid going outside in direct sunlight for several weeks after surgery because this could cause irritation around your eyes and ears due to sun exposure.
7. What techniques does the surgeon use?
Most surgeons will use either closed or open techniques depending on their personal preferences and training. Closed techniques are often less invasive but require more time in recovery because there are stitches involved in closing up the incisions made during surgery. Open techniques require less time in recovery but have longer incision lines and can result in more scarring afterwards because of this. If you’re concerned about scars, make sure your surgeon uses an open technique if possible so that scars will be hidden under your nose after healing has occurred.
8. What kind of pain management do you recommend?
– Nasal packing has been used for decades as a way to reduce swelling and discomfort during recovery. It involves placing a sterile gauze pad in the nasal cavity to help provide cushioning and support.
– Ice packs are helpful for reducing swelling and bruising around the nose, cheekbones, mouth and eyes. You can also apply ice packs after your surgery to minimize pain and swelling.
– Antibiotics may be prescribed prior to or after the procedure to prevent infection from occurring during or after your recovery period.
9. Will my face or nose be swollen after surgery?
This is one of the most common concerns patients have about rhinoplasty, but it’s also one of the easiest ones to address. Your doctor will likely prescribe an oral pain reliever after surgery and recommend that you keep ice packs on your face for several days afterward. This will help reduce swelling and relieve pain considerably. However, if your face does become swollen after surgery, it’s not unusual for it to take several weeks for the swelling to go down completely.
10. What’s the difference between open and closed rhinoplasty?
Open rhinoplasty means that incisions are made on the outside of your nose so that bones can be reshaped using surgical instruments. Closed rhinoplasty refers to an operation that uses only incisions inside the nostrils to push out skin without changing bone structure. Because closed rhinoplasties require no cutting through muscles or cartilage, they generally take less time than open procedures and have fewer complications such as bleeding or bruising around the eyes. However, it’s more difficult for doctors performing these procedures to see exactly what they’re doing inside an operating room because they don’t have access to external features of your nose.
11. Am I a good candidate for this surgery?
The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for rhinoplasty is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facial plastic surgery. Your surgeon will examine your nose and discuss your desired results with you before recommending a surgical plan.
12. How will my nose look when it’s healed?
The answer will depend on the type of procedure that is being performed and your surgeon’s experience. The goal of cosmetic rhinoplasty is to balance the face by improving the size and shape of the nose without changing its overall proportions.
13. What should I do to prepare for surgery?
Your doctor or nurse will give you instructions on what to eat and drink, as well as when to stop taking certain medications. If you’ve been prescribed pain medication, talk with your doctor about what type is best for you and how soon before surgery you should take it.
14. Will I have scars after rhinoplasty surgery?
There are two types of scars that can occur after rhinoplasty: incisional and surface. Incisional scars form when the surgeon makes an incision in your skin to access the underlying bone structure. They tend to be longer-lasting than surface scars but they also tend to be less visible. Surface scars form when the surgeon cuts through some of your nasal cartilage or uses small tunnels under your skin to make incisions in areas that cannot be accessed directly through an incision on top of your skin. These type of scars are typically much less visible than incisional scars but they also tend to fade much more quickly than their long-lasting counterparts.
If you’re considering rhinoplasty, it’s important to ask a lot of questions. Find out if the surgeon is board certified, what their experience level is and what their specialties are. It’s also helpful to know how many surgeries they perform in a year, as well as what percentage of those surgeries were successful.
The best way to find out if a surgeon is qualified is by looking at his or her before-and-after photos and reading reviews from previous patients. You may also want to consider interviewing other surgeons before making your final decision.
