The nose is an important organ in terms of respiration but also for appearance since it is located in the middle of the face. Nose surgeries are one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. Operations regarding the nose should be well-planned and executed in every aspect. During cosmetic nose surgeries, it is possible to reduce the size of the nose, remove or lower the nasal hump, change the nose tip's shape, open the airways, reduce or increase the size of nostrils, and change the angle between the upper lip and the nose. Since the needs of patients differ, the operations vary accordingly.

Which type of anesthesia is used during cosmetic nose surgeries?

These surgeries are performed in a hospital and under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is completely asleep during the operation.

How long do these surgeries take?

These surgeries usually take 2-3 hours; however, this varies from patient to patient.

"Open" or "closed" rhinoplasty? Which one do I need?

Depending on the state of the patient, the surgery can be performed either with incisions made outside (open rhinoplasty) or inside (closed rhinoplasty) of the nose.

What are the benefits of Piezo (Ultrasonic) Rhinoplasty?

Piezo can be used to shape nasal bones very delicately and evenly without disrupting bone stabilization. In Piezo (ultrasonic) rhinoplasty, blood vessels in cartilage and soft tissue are not damaged, resulting in less bruising compared to the conventional method. This leads to greater patient comfort and faster tissue healing. It also aids in achieving a more natural appearance post-surgery. The rate of complications and the need for revision surgery are significantly reduced.

What are the age restrictions for rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty can be performed on women over 17 and men over 18.

How long is the hospitalization after the surgery?

The patient can be discharged in the afternoon if the operation is performed in the morning; or the next morning if the surgery is performed in the afternoon.

Are internal splints and external casts used after nose surgeries? If so for how long?

Usually, silicone splints with air canals are placed in the nose after cosmetic nose surgeries. To protect the nose from impacts and conserve its shape, a thermoplastic splint is used. Silicone and thermoplastic splints are removed after about a week.
