Hello, I’m Hakan Cıncık, MD. I am an ear, nose, throat, head and neck surgery specialist.

Today I would like to talk to you about nasal diseases, deformities and breathing problems. Breathing through the nose is an invariable part of our lives. As you know, when babies are born, they know how to breathe through the nose, not the mouth. We continue to breathe through the nose throughout our lives. But when we are stressed, when we need to walk quickly or run, we breathe through the mouth. Therefore, nasal congestion is very important in terms of quality of life. The most common cause of nasal congestion is the curvature of the septum, which divides the nose into two, and growths in the nasal conchae. Since the nose is a widely used organ and is constantly interacting with dust and air, deterioration or enlargement of the nasal concha may occur sometimes. In addition, allergies and weather conditions also affect the nasal conchae. The blows to the nose after birth and our genetic structure shape the nose until the age of 18. After taking its final shape at the age of 18-20, if there is a deformity or breathing problem, they should be treated.

Deformities in the nose are treated with; Rhinoplasty, if there is an appearance defect on the outside, septoplasty, if there is a defect inside the nose only, if the nasal conchae are large, they are corrected with surgeries for the conchae. Breathing through the nose is improved and the shape is corrected. Rhinoplasty surgery is an operation in which through correcting the external shape of the nose reshaping the bones by cutting and rasping them, stitching the cartilage, and adding new cartilage, the nose is given a more beautiful appearance. At the same time, in all of these surgeries, by correcting intranasal curvature with septoplasty we create a good breathing function. In addition, of there is an enlargement in the nasal conchae, we definitely make an intervention. The nose is a complex anatomy and structure. It should always be preferred to be operated on by a good surgeon. Because it is an organ that you will carry on your face for the rest of your life.
