Rhinoplasty is a common cosmetic surgery in Istanbul, as many foreign patients visit Istanbul to have this surgery for many reasons including the extraordinary results and the reasonable cost.
Rhinoplasty involves changing the general appearance of the nose or fixing a breathing problem, or in many cases both. This surgery aims at changing the size and shape of the nose to make it in symmetrical proportions with the other facial features.
The optimal age for having a rhinoplasty depends on the reason why the patient is considering having this procedure done. If the reason is to change the appearance of the nose patients are advised to do it after turning 15 but in the case of fixing a breathing problem, the operation can be done at an earlier age
Type of Rhinoplasty in Istanbul
There are three main types of rhinoplasty the treating doctor can decide the type that is most suitable for the patient.
This procedure is suitable for patients who need a major reshaping of their noses. There is a special surgical technique that the surgeons use in this type of operation that includes creating vertical incisions to uncover the nasal anatomy to start working on the bone and tissue.
This type of rhinoplasty gives the surgeon more accessibility on a skeletal level to the nose and they can work freely around the underlying problems that are connected to either the shape or the function of the nose or both. Many surgeons prefer this type of nose job.
This surgical approach to rhinoplasty, also known as scarless rhinoplasty, is the most common approach that surgeons use nowadays. This type of rhinoplasty involves creating two incisions inside the nose, using special instruments that allow them to see and work around the bone, cartilage, and soft tissue in the nose.
The merits of closed rhinoplasty include less trauma to the bone and tissue which leads to less swelling, it delivers natural results with less recovery time. But is difficult to work on complex cases using this technique. Patients should keep in mind that it is up to the surgeon to decide on which technique to use depending on the complexity of the case and the expectations of the patient.
This technique is also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty as it does not involve any surgical applications. The doctor will inject some dermal fillers to soothe the sharp edges of the nose and change the appearance of the tip.
This type of rhinoplasty does not provide patients with lasting results but it provides satisfactory instant results with no complications scarring, or side effects, it also can be done regularly but a permanent solution is more cost-efficient for long-lasting results.
The name of this type of rhinoplasty refers to the complexity of the procedure or revision cases when the first operation has failed to deliver the desired results. In this type of operation, the surgeon will attempt to correct problems caused by the first procedure.
The complexity of a revision rhinoplasty differs from one case to another depending on the degree of damage either to the shape of the nose or the breathing or both. The cost of this type of rhinoplasty is usually higher and not all patients who already had a nose job are candidates for this operation.
