Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as rhinoplasty, is an aesthetic surgical procedure in which the shape and size of the nose can be changed. With this operation, the nose can be reduced, the angle between the nose and upper lip can be changed, the position of the tip of the nose can be adjusted, and defects such as blows to the nose or congenital unaesthetic images can be corrected.
Aesthetically, rhinoplasty can positively affect the overall symmetry and aesthetic appearance of the face. This can improve one’s social interactions and self-confidence. Rhinoplasty can be performed not only for aesthetic concerns, but also to solve functional problems. For example, problems such as nasal congestion and breathing difficulties can also be solved with this operation.
Functionally, correcting the shape of the nose can also solve breathing problems. Especially problems such as deviation (curvature) can be corrected with rhinoplasty, so that patients can breathe more comfortably.
The operation is usually performed under general or local anaesthesia and the duration can vary between 1-3 hours.
