Rhinoplasty can correct the shape and structure of your nose. The procedure is useful for cosmetic purposes and to correct structural defects.
Our nose consists of bone at the top and cartilage at the bottom. Cosmetic surgeons can correct these structures with rhinoplasty surgery. Moreover, they can improve the skin of your nose through this procedure.

Why is Rhinoplasty Done?
It is possible to eliminate aesthetic and breathing problems with a single operation. In addition, the procedure can correct deformities caused by injury and congenital deformities or structural defects. Also, if your nose is not harmonious with your face, surgeons can change its size. Moreover, they can widen your narrow nose bridge, remove visible protrusions and narrow your nostrils. Rhinoplasty helps you to eliminate problems such as an arched nose, curved nose, thin nose, etc.
How Do You Prepare?
Most important questions:
- Have you had nose surgery before?
- What kind of drugs do you use?
- Did you have frequent nasal congestion in the past?
For example, a bleeding disorder in your nose can keep you from having a rhinoplasty.

The Rhinoplasty Surgery
Surgeons can perform rhinoplasty by making incisions completely inside your nose or externally with small incisions. Also, they can make incisions at the base and remove the soft tissues carefully. Then, surgeons can change the structure of the nose as planned.
For minor changes, surgeons usually use cartilage at the base of the nose. However, you may need an implant if you need a larger replacement. Additionally, they can take bone or cartilage from other parts of your body. After finishing the necessary changes, your surgeon replaces the skin and tissues.
They discharge you on the same day of surgery.
For 2 days, lie in a vertical position all the time to reduce the risk of edema formation. To prevent swelling and bleeding, your head must be in an upright position. The dressings and splint inside your nose can stay for up to 7 days. Also, you will experience bleeding and mucus discharge for a few days. They may attach a pad that absorbs blood and mucus to relieve discomfort.
You should avoid after rhinoplasty:
- Laughing or smiling
- Sports or exercise for a few weeks
- Washing from the neck up
- Blowing your nose
- Poor nutrition
- Brushing your teeth fast
- Wearing clothes above your head
Millimetric differences cause big changes in the appearance of the nose. Also, the results of rhinoplasty will be fully revealed within a year. There may be occasional swelling temporarily.
