Taking into account, your facial structure and the physical properties of your nose, your doctor can provide you with an idea as to how your nose would look after the surgery by making changes on a digital image of your face. Prior to this operation the patient should be examined and the doctor should understand the expectations of the patient thoroughly and the doctor should provide the patient with feedback explaining to what extent these expectations can be met.Because every patient has a different skin, cartilage and bone structure, results of the operation would vary from patient to patient. Thus, your doctor will inform you as to the expected results based on your anatomic features.

Aesthetic nose surgery can be applied to any person aged 18 and above with no serious health conditions. These operations are done to correct not only the physical features but also airflow problems that prevent inhaling in patients.

These operations are usually carried out under general anesthesia. Depending on the nose structure and properties of the patient, the operation can be carried out with the closed or the open technique. With the open technique, an incision is made right under the nose but this heals quickly most of the time and only a barely noticeable scar remains. With the closed technique, on the other hand, all incisions required for the operation are made through the nose holes and no scars form.

After the surgery, the nose is covered with plaster cast and remains so for 7-10 days. And a stype is placed inside this cast. Because we mostly use silicone stypes at our clinic, the patients don’t experience the same pain as they do with cloth stypes during stype removal.

Following the surgery, there might be bruises and swellings around the nose and the eyes and these would usually heal within 3-4 weeks. However, it takes around 3-6 months for the swellings and hardness inside the nose that are invisible from outside to heal and for the nose to have a gentler look.

What are some undesirable conditions that might occur after the surgery?

Some of the unwanted conditions are bleeding, infection and anesthetic complications and sometimes a second retouching might be necessary in 5-10% of the patients.
