Proportion and balance determine symmetry and beauty
The goal of aesthetic nose surgery is to create a nose that is proportional to other parts of the face, has a good inhaling and exhaling function and is not recognized by others as a nose that has gone aesthetic surgery.
The most popular aesthetic surgery in our country is definitely rhinoplasty.

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.
More and more Surgeons are moving away from traditional Rhinoplasty (Corrective Nose Surgery) in favour of less invasive options with Botox and Dermal Fillers.
Surgical Rhinoplasty is an extremely popular plastic surgery procedure worldwide. The surgery itself unfortunately is extremely complicated and the risks are significant. Popularity versus time in theatre and risk has propelled the surgical world into finding faster, safer and more efficient ways to cosmetically alter a person’s nose.
Most Cosmetic Nose Surgery involves alteration to the bridge of the nose or the tip of the nose, or both. The dissection is complicated in the nose as the nasal scaffold of bone, muscle and cartilage all need to be manipulated, leading to increased risk and long recovery times. This same scaffold however is the perfect base to stabilise Botox and Dermal Fillers and more and more Doctors are turning to these non-surgical options to get their patients their desired cosmetic nose results.

The Medical Rhinoplasty
The non-surgical treatment of the nose or Medical Rhinoplasty has become of prime importance. During the procedure there is no change to the nasal scaffold and no risk of deformity. Also the products used in the Medical Rhinoplasty have significant clinical data detailing their safety.
There is of course sill some risk involved with the Medical Rhinoplasty and as a patient you need to seek out an experienced injector with an in depth knowledge of nasal anatomy. Knowledge of Nasal anatomy will allow your Aesthetic Physician to obtain a good aesthetic result by combining the mobile elements in the nose with the static bone structure and surrounding facial features.

Medical Rhinoplasty can be used as a precursor to invasive surgery but it is becoming more and more popular as a regular treatment option. In combination Botox and Dermal Fillers can be used as a non-permanent correction for:
Nose tip repositioning
Nose Bridge straightening
Your nose after all takes up one third of the face and forms an integral part of facial aesthetics. It great to know that clinical papers are currently being presented promoting the Medical Rhinoplasty in favour of surgical intervention.
This is a 25 year-old pharmacist who has always been bothered by the appearance of her nose. She described her nose initially as one that is slightly crooked. It was large when viewed on the side. She also had problems with noticeable asymmetry when viewing her base view. She had a deviated nasal septum causing her nasal obstruction and difficulty breathing out of the left side of her nose. She underwent nasal reconstruction and Rhinoplasty and as you can see on base view, the septum of the nose has been straightened making the aperture of the nostril larger on her left side (this is the patient’s left side, however when viewing the photograph it is actually on the right.) As you can see from the post-operative photographs on the right side the patient’s nose is straighter on frontal view where her nose fits her face more. We have decreased the projection slightly (the distance that the nose protrudes from the face) and also addressed the area above the lip that was more obvious and gave the illusion of having a large nostril. The profile was brought in alignment and the patient was very pleased with this outcome as well as the ability to now breathe through her nose.
The Keystone of the Face
The nose is located in the center of the ‘communication band’, that is, the area of the face where people first look at you, which also encompasses the eyes. For this reason, there is often some anxiety about its appearance.
Rhinoplasty – And The Nose You Want
A rhinoplasty will alter the shape and appearance of your nose. Rhinoplasty creates the new look by changing the underlying cartilage and bone. Nose surgery can make:
A large nose smaller
A wide nose thinner
A long nose shorter
Refine a big or drooping tip
Straighten a crooked alignment
In most rhinoplasty procedures, surgery removes a hump or re-builds a flat nose. The possibilities are endless and after a detailed consultation we tailor the operation that addresses your concerns. Importantly surgery to the nose
should enhance your airway.

Things You’ll Need
· Netty pot
· 1/2 tsp. table salt
· 1 cup water
· Nasal spray
1. Determine whether you are suffering from an allergy or a cold. If it is an allergy, your eyes often feel itchy. Colds can come with coughs and periods of nasal congestion. If it is allergy season and you are fairly sure this is the cause, avoid the outdoors as much as possible. Keeping your windows closed and staying indoors can help get rid of your sneezing and runny nose.
2. Clean out your nasal passages with a netty pot. Fill the netty pot with warm salt water. Place the tip of the pot in your left nostril, and lean your head to the side. Tip the pot so that the water runs through your left nasal passage and out your right nasal passage. Repeat this with the right nostril. This will temporarily eliminate your symptoms.
3. Purchase an over-the-counter antihistamine. Antihistamines will stop the triggers causing you to sneeze and have a runny nose. The antihistamine will work for up to four hours each time you take it.
4. Spray your nostrils with a nasal spray. This will reduce inflammation inside your nasal passages. Nasal sprays are not designed for long term use, but they are effective at getting rid of sneezing and runny noses.
