Aesthetic surgery aims to improve the appearance of the person. Aesthetic nose surgery or rhinoplasty is the reshaping of the nose to correct the appearance.
The earliest age recommended for rhinoplasty is 16-17 years of age, when 90% of nasal growth is complete. The variable affecting the decision in older people is health rather than age.
If you have any of the following conditions, you might consider rhinoplasty:
The first step for a person that is consulting to a plastic surgeon to learn about rhinoplasty. One should keep in mind that the desired result may not be perfect, but rather corrected. One of the most important factors that should be determined before any plastic surgery is emotional balance. Rhinoplasty can give your nose a new shape, but it cannot direct the flow of your life. Postoperative complications (such as infection etc.) are rare when applied first to correct the appearance. Poor recovery may require second surgery. The risk of complications is reduced by carefully applying the recommendations of the surgeon during the follow-up period. Rhinoplasty fees and hospital prices are very variable.
The first time you talk to your plastic surgeon, you should pay attention to the following topics:
You should avoid some medical treatment that may complicate your surgery or your healing process. You should give up all of the aspirin and alternative medicines 10 days before surgery. You should stop smoking for a certain period before and after the surgery.
The technique that will be used for your surgery depends not only on your surgeon's preference, but also on what you want and what you expect from the outcome of the surgery. The surgeon should design the nasal shape that is appropriate for you on the computer and evaluate whether or not it is compatible with your expectations. Aesthetic rhinoplasty is used to reduce or enlarge the size of the nose, to reshape the tip, to correct the bulge of the nose, to proportionate the angle between the upper lip and the nose. The incisions in most nasal surgeries are done through the nasal side and they are worked from there. This is called as closed rhinoplasty. In other cases, the surgeon performs open rhinoplasty by opening a small incision in the strip that divides the nostrils into two. Surgery usually lasts for one to a half to two hours, but may be longer depending on the scope of the surgery. There may be a slight pain that easily passes through postoperative medication. To reduce bruising and swelling, you will be asked to lie down slightly and apply a cold compress to your eyes. Nose cast is often taken in the first week of surgery and a one-week bandage is applied to prevent nasal swelling. Because most of the aesthetic rhinoplasties are intranasal, there will be no visible scars. Patients can return to work after 15 days.
After surgery, you should be careful about these things:
In Ten Days;
A few weeks later;
In the months following your surgery, you should protect your nose from sunlight. Using sunscreen creams is important to protect your skin.
The degree of correction depends on the scope of the corrective effort and the basic structure of your nose, cartilages and skin. A dramatic result is evident in the shape of a distorted nose, while a slightly larger nose may also be successfully corrected, but the result may not be obvious. It is common for some type of rhinoplasties, to hear that they dont see much difference from relatives and friends. Do not take such reactions as a sign of failure, on the contrary, it will not be noticed if it is a "good" and "natural" apperance.
