Rhinoplasty Operations and the Points to Take Into Consideration
Nose surgeries are among the works that plastic surgeons are engaged in the most. The nose is the first thing that attracts attention on the human face. This is why the nose is of great importance. Two things are very important rhinoplasty. The resultant nose should suit the patient's face and solve his/her breathing problems (if any).
Rhinoplasty operations done for aesthetic purposes should not disorder your breathing function. You should not have a difficulty in breathing when having a surgery intended for aesthetic appearance. Plastic surgeons have solved this problem. I know those years, during which we were not able to solve breathing problems. I add my 30 years of experience to my surgical operations. Today, there is not a problem about inability to breathe.
Your physician chooses the open or closed technique, depending on the problem in your nose. I recommend you to establish a good dialogue with your physician when you having a rhinoplasty. You should tell the physician what you want very clearly. Likewise, your physician should make you explanations very clearly.
Today, we don't use nasal packs after rhinoplasty operations. If the patient had not had any operation before, this operation is easier for us. But when people who had had several operations before coming to us—I know people who had had 7-8 operations before coming to me with a ruined nose—we do a corrective surgery by taking parts from the ribs. Such an operation takes hours, but fortunately, results in a considerable success. We obtain shapely noses that function properly in terms of breathing.
Open technique is more convenient, especially in the correction of deformed noses. I have used the closed technique for 20 years but I have used the open technique for the last 10-11 years. It is because I do the operation by seeing site, and consequently, we get more successful results.
Rhinoplasty is not an easy-to-perform operation, and cannot be done hastily. Be careful about that you will have to stay in Istanbul for 5 days after rhinoplasty. You should not leave Istanbul before staying for a period of 5 days.
