Who Can Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Procedures Be Applied To?

Rhinoplasty can be applied to anyone with a request related to the nose if their health status is also appropriate. Rhinoplasty can be performed due to complaints such as arched nose, long nose, a low tip of the nose, size of nostrils or asymmetry. With aesthetic nose surgery, your nose size can be increased, reduced, large nostrils can be reduced, the shape of the tip of the nose can be changed, the angles that the nose makes with the forehead and lip can be corrected. During this process, cartilage and bone curvatures that cause breathing problems can also be corrected. In addition, rhinoplasty operations are also performed to correct disfigurement that develops due to various injuries, such as various accidents, bumps. Or, as a result of these injuries, reconstruction of the nose may also be required.

Which Are Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Procedures?

In general, the techniques used in nose aesthetics are divided into open technique or closed technique surgery.

Open rhinoplasty is performed by opening a small incision in the lower part between the nostrils. Opening this section gives the surgeon a wider viewing angle. The advantage of open rhinoplasty is a much higher level of nasal dominance. It is performed by millimeter measurements by seeing each part. If a tissue is to be added there, it is an operation by fixing those tissues there one-on-one, stitching them, that is, each stage is performed with hand-eye coordination. Open rhinoplasty takes a little longer than closed rhinoplasty. In some cases, edema at the tip of the nose can also last for a long time. But it can usually be said that it is the most often preferred method when viewed as an approach in the world. It’s a very safe application. Especially when forming bones, movement by the eye increases control and can provide safer movement.

Closed rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty technique performed by cutting from the inside of the nose. In the holes of the nose, incisions made from the inside are performed without lifting the nose. A scalpel makes an incision of approximately 3-4 cm from the inside of the nose, not from the wing. In this way, the cartilage and bones of the nose are pointed at. In this area, the skin is removed where it will be intervened, and then the bone parts are removed if the bone is to be removed. Or, if parts of the cartilage are removed or added, these procedures are performed. Then this incision is closed by suture. Closed rhinoplasty takes less time than open rhinoplasty, and the recovery time can be slightly faster because the tip of the nose does not open.

However, neither closed nor open rhinoplasty is a process that the patient should question. Closed or open rhinoplasty is a matter in which the surgeon decides which one will achieve the best, most successful result, that is, it is actually a choice that concerns the surgeon directly.
