What is Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)?
All of the aesthetic surgical procedures performed by plastic surgeons to provide a more aesthetic appearance to the nose of the individuals or to correct the deteriorated nasal anatomy after various traumas define the rhinoplasty.
Nasal aesthetics, also known as rhinoplasty medically, is one of the most applied medical aesthetic procedures worldwide. Through this surgical procedure the shape, length, and width of the nose can be changed. With the help of this procedure, which is highly preferred both in terms of health and aesthetics, patients may have a more robust nose belt. It can correct congenital or subsequent deformations of the nose and reshape the angle between the lip and nose.
Important: The rhinoplasty requiring patients should be examined by the surgeon to decide whether the nose tissues are suitable for surgery or not. Nose aesthetic operations should be performed by experienced plastic surgeons who are specialists in their fields as a wrong intervention will have severe undesired results.
What is the Purpose of a Nose Job?
Nose aesthetic surgery, as well as targeting to reach a beautiful image, also aims to achieve the patient’s health. In other words, there are two answers to the question of for what purposes rhinoplasty is applied for;
- First, this procedure is purely an aesthetic-oriented intervention for people who are not satisfied with the shape and appearance of their nose.
The latter is an option for people suffering from upper respiratory tract diseases such as deviation. After rhinoplasty, they begin to breathe comfortably.
In both cases, it is observed that people who had this procedure were satisfied with their results, continued their lives more confidently and were more comfortable and happier in their social lives.
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Rhinoplasty surgery, in other words, “nose bob”, can be applied in two ways: open or closed method. Today, the most preferred method by surgeons is a closed rhinoplasty. In the open procedure, the incision is made at the tip of the nose. In the closed technique, the interventions are performed through the nostrils. This procedure is supported by a small camera. Although the surgery time varies according to the intensity of the operation, it usually takes 1-1.5 hours. In closed rhinoplasty, absorbable sutures are used. After nasal aesthetics, there is no need to apply dressings at home.

As with other medical and aesthetic procedures, rhinoplasty has different application techniques. Surgeons may prefer different options to be successful and achieve the correct result. Filling application in nose job may be one of these options for corrective surgery. Filling application is preferred especially for patients who have no major anatomical disorders in their noses and do not experience respiratory problems. In the filling application, a substance that acts as a cartilage is transferred to the slightly deformed areas of the nose (for example, a light nasal hump) with a simple injection process. Thus, the deformed part is removed by injectable fillers.
Just like nose filling, the filing method is also a frequently preferred option in rhinoplasty. In nose job procedure, the filing method is applied not only to patients with severe respiratory problems but also to people who are looking for an aesthetic appearance. During this simple procedure, the sharp points and excess parts of the nose are abraded and reduced. The healing process is shorter after filing since the bone is not broken. Nose filing is usually performed for the purpose of trimming the nose hump. In cases where the nose hump is too large, other methods may be offered to the patient.
Yes, there are non-surgical nose job procedures. These procedures are the process of hanging the nose tip with surgical ropes and filling the nose back with various filling materials to add volume. In this process, the protrusions and curvatures in the nose are not corrected and only some parts of the nose are filled. Respiratory problems are not resolved by this method. In the method of non-surgical nose job, only an “illusion” is provided with fillings.
When the nose job is performed by surgeons, no situation called nose tip reduction will be experienced. In modern nasal surgeries, the anterior part of the nose is supported by cartilage called a graft. Graft supports made in this way prevent physiological nasal tip reduction.
The muscle and bone structure of the patient should have been completely developed for nose surgery. Although there is no official age limit for a nose job in Turkey, the age of 16 for women and 18 for men is accepted as the lower age limit.
There is no problem for patients with sinusitis in undergoing rhinoplasty. However, it is more appropriate for patients with sinusitis to deal with this problem first that cause this discomfort and then undergo surgery.
Aesthetic nose surgery does not have any specific time or season when it can provide an advantage to the patient. Depending on the profession, the problems that some patients experience after surgery increase in hot weather. However, when the sun and the effects of the summer season are taken into consideration, surgical nose procedures can be performed without any problems. Patients who will have a nose job, especially in the summer, should know that they can only swim in the pool or the sea with the permission of their doctor.
Respiratory problems caused by nose defects can be corrected with nose surgery.
