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.
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.
Your first step!
The key to a successful rhinoplasty is accurate information and good communication, and it’s the reason I have compiled the “Making The Right Choices” report.
The “Rhinoplasty Report” explains:
Understanding nasal structure and its importance in rhinoplasty
The importance of nasal assessment
Why computer imaging by YOUR surgeon is important
Defines unusual variations and their correction

The inter-relationship between body image self esteem and nasal surgery.
Intraoperative views of alar wedge and sill excisions. A, Both alar flaring and sill excess are present. B, Open rhinoplasty is performed with increased tip projection and a modest change in the nostril shape. C, Incisions are placed to remove flare and to enter the nasal sill medially to the alar insertions, preserving the lateral ala. On the patient’s left (C), flare and sill excisions have been carried out, and markings show the planned excision on the patient’s right. The oblique marking line (C) is useful for realigning the alar segment after the sill excess has been removed. D, Flare and sill reduction are completed bilaterally.
Comments: Although the client seems to be liking nose with small Alar Base(pic D), but in my view, his nose was better off with only tip reinforcement leaving alone the wide alar base intact, i-e, nose as shown in pic B. In the pic B Nostril size is in proportion with the mass in reinforced tip. Compare pic B to the view in pic D where tip vs nostrils size proportion once again is out as it was origionally in pic A.
When you first go on see a plastic surgeon for a consultation, you will tell him or her how you want your nose to look. You will describe what you think is the perfect nose for you. Your surgeon will then tell you what he or she thinks is the best nose for you and will tell you what nose reshaping is surgically possible. What you want may not be what is aesthetically best for your nose, or may not be surgically possible without impairing the function of your nose.
Understand that it is easier to take away than to add to a nose. Once the nose has been reduced, it may be very difficult to go back up a size if you went too far during your initial nose reshaping surgery. You have to have good communication with your surgeon.
You might want to start collecting pictures of what type of nose you want. You can bring them to your consultation to show the surgeon. But be realistic! Those noses may not be good for you for any number of reasons.
Of course, you may need surgery on your nose if you have breathing problems caused by a deviated septum or other blockages or recurrent infections. Here is a list of the most common cosmetic reasons for wanting rhinoplasty, both the realistic ones and irrational ones.
Cosmetic problems that can realistically be helped by rhinoplasty:
Too big a nose
Too flat a nose
A hump or bump in the middle of the nose
Too wide or fat a nose
Too thin a nose
Too long a nose
Too short a nose
Too pinched-looking a nose
A hanging columnella (the piece of skin and cartilage between the nostrils)
A crooked nose
Asymmetry, in general
A bifid tip (a ditch or cleft on the tip between the two tip cartilages)
A build up of scar tissue from breaks
A hooked nose
A “piggish” nose
Not angled enough
Angled too much
Irrational or unrealistic reasons for a rhinoplasty wanting nose reshaping surgery:
To attract a mate or rekindle the affection of the mate you have
To gain popularity
Low self-esteem due to emotional issues not connected to your appearance
Because someone else thinks you need a nose job
You might want to have nose reshaping a nose job because you think it will help your career. Certainly, if you are in the entertainment industry, this could make sense. If you are an accountant, it might not make as much sense, but everyone wants to look better, so why not? Just understand that having a rhinoplasty won’t make up for poor accounting skills.
Just be sure that you are having surgery for yourself and for no one else. Make sure that you understand that changing your nose will not change any other factor in your life.Don’t try to trick yourself into thinking you want it for the right reasons if you really want it for the wrong ones. It will save you a lot of grief (and money) down the road.
|Question: What is the ideal nose?
Answer: The “ideal” nose is a nose that is in harmony with the other favorable features of your face. The “ideal” shape for a male or female nose is an aesthetic concept that has its roots in our perception of beauty. This cannot be completely boiled down to lines and numbers — there is always an indescribable “artistic” element. However, by studying beauty, and faces that are universally felt to be beautiful, artists and plastic surgeons can arrive at some guidelines or proportions that represent the “aesthetic ideal.” Leonardo da Vinci was among the first to make such studies of beauty and aesthetic proportions. He and other artists have been joined in this pursuit by facial plastic surgeons, whose job entails understanding beauty and then making changes that enhance the beauty of their patients.
What follows are the lines and measurements that facial plastic surgeons have in their heads as a guideline to the aesthetic ideal. They are reprinted with permission from Rhinoplasty Dissection Manual, by Dr. Toriumi and Dr. Becker.
You may be satisfied to realize that these lines, numbers and measurements exist; of course, on the other hand, you should feel free to study them and become more of an “expert!”
