Aesthetic surgery has been very popular recently around the world. Rhinoplasty is a nasal aesthetic operation that is made by talented well educated surgeons. Nasal aesthetics, also called nasoplasty, rhinoplasty, and nasal surgery is one of the most frequently applied in aesthetic operations nowadays.
The Purpose of Rhinoplasty
It is performed with the aim of eliminating deformations that are either present since birth or happened due to traumas. While rhinoplasty is sometimes preferred only because of visual disturbances, it is also preferred to solve problems such as breathing disorders. Regardless of the reason for which aesthetic operation is performed, the primary goal in nasal aesthetics is to make the respiratory tract in the nose work best.
The Process of Rhinoplasty
Nose aesthetics or namely rhinoplasty which can be applied in both men and women is a complicated operation. Achieving the expected result will require a period of 6 to 12 months depending on the size of the operation in the nose, the form of the tissues in the nose, or the severity of the problem. If the instructions of the surgeon and doctors are applied accordingly the healing process will be much easier than expected.
Nose aesthetic surgery is a type of operation mostly performed under general anesthesia. In simple rhinoplasty operations that only require small touches, local anesthesia can be applied according to the surgeon’s preference. While the rhinoplasty operation takes an average of 2 hours, a rhinoplasty operation usually takes one day in total including preoperative preparations and post-operative applications and observation times.
Open and Closed Rhinoplasty
There are two different rhinoplasty techniques that are widely known. The one mostly preferred rhinoplasty operation is the ‘open rhinoplasty’ in which a small incision is made between the nostrils, and the view of the surgeon is widened thanks to this incision.
Generally, the open rhinoplasty technique is preferred in people who have advanced deformations in the nasal area or who have previously had a different rhinoplasty operation. Yet, the healing process is longer in this open rhinoplasty operation and the problems such as edema and bruising after the operation are larger.
In the other technique called ‘closed rhinoplasty’ the incision is adjusted to remain in the nostrils. Thus, the surgeon’s field of vision is less than in the open rhinoplasty operation, but the recovery time is shorter, and there is no scar left in or on the nose after the operation.
