Rhinoplasty in Istanbul

Compare 12 clinics

Rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a “nose job” is a type of reconstructive plastic surgery that can be used to aesthetically enhance the nose or restore the nasal functions to their fullest.

There are two types of rhinoplasty: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty Candidates

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is recommended for individuals who wish to enhance the form and look of their nose but also for individuals who suffer from one or more of the following:

● Nasal trauma
● Respiratory impediments
● Congenital nasal defects
● A failed primary nose surgery which requires a rhinoplasty revision

Am I Suitable for Rhinoplasty?

Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty is not recommended for individuals whose physiological development is not complete – children and teenagers fall into this category.

Preparing for Rhinoplasty

The patient should avoid any intake of vitamins, herbal teas, and aspirin for at least 10 days before the procedure. Drinking, eating, and smoking are prohibited for at least 8 hours before a nose surgery.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Local or general anaesthesia is administered to the patient before the nose surgery can begin. Rhinoplasty is a very safe procedure – rhinoplasty complications are rare. Once the anaesthesia sets in, the surgeon proceeds to separate the nasal skin from the rest of the nasal structure.

In a closed rhinoplasty surgery, the surgeon will use the nostrils as entry points to correct the underlying nasal structures consisting of bone and cartilage.

In an open rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon will cut the columella and then proceed to make the necessary changes. Once the nasal structure is changed according to the patient’s wishes, the surgeon will suture the incisions and apply a stent to further stabilize the nose surgery result. The area is then wrapped in bandages and the rhinoplasty recovery period can begin.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

The rhinoplasty recovery period is not restrictive at all, but there are certain things that the patient needs to keep in mind after the procedure. Patients can usually return to work and normal activities in about a week but contact sports should be avoided for a few months. Rhinoplasty post op tips also include wearing the nasal splint or rhinoplasty cast for a few weeks after the procedure, especially at night. Rhinoplasty healing time is up to a year in most cases, as the swelling will gradually reduce and the final nose shape will be revealed in around 11-12 months.

Scars after Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty scars are very limited, but it depends on the type of nose surgery – an open nose surgery will require cutting the columella but if the closed rhinoplasty technique is used, scars will be practically non-existent.

Rhinoplasty Risks and Complications

The patient will experience bruising, discomfort and swelling for a few weeks after the nose surgery. Painkillers can be used during the rhinoplasty post op period. It’s important to note that the swelling will gradually reduce during the course of a year. Some patients may experience breathing disturbances after the procedure.

Rhinoplasty Success Rates

A survey based on 468 nose surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at around 91%. Males generally tend to be less satisfied with rhinoplasty results.

Before and After Rhinoplasty

While rhinoplasty before and after pictures may look appealing it’s worthy to note that the nose will take its final shape in around 12 months after the surgery, so patience and carefully following the doctor’s instructions are the key to a successful rhinoplasty procedure. Patients are generally more satisfied with their look and overall life – this is one of the reasons why rhinoplasty is so popular among men and women around the world.

Istanbul

Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey and In Europe, according to population – it has over 14 million inhabitants. Istanbul is Turkey’s financial, cultural and healthcare hub – it’s the city with the most JCI accredited private hospitals. The city spreads on both sides of the Bosphorus – The strait that divides the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea. Istanbul also connects Europe to Asia forming a very interesting mix, both gastronomically and culturally.

Over 11 million tourists visited Istanbul in 2012, making it the fifth most popular tourist destination in the world.

Sights to See

The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.

Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.

Topkapı Palace
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens. The palace became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 and has been described as “one of the best examples of palaces of the Ottoman period”.

Things to Know

● Tourists arriving in Istanbul will be required to purchase a tourist Visa – the procedure can be easily done online or at a visa machine before the immigration section of the airport. The Visa costs around 20 USD.

● There are 3 main airports in Istanbul. Hazerfen Airport is a private airport with limited traffic. Atatürk Airport is located on the European side of Istanbul and Sabiha Gökçen Airport is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Usually planes land at the Atatürk Airport (IATA:IST) which is just 20 km from the city centre. From there a visitor can take a taxi to Taksim Square for around TRY60. Tourists can also use a local airport service called Havataş which runs express bus services every 30 minutes for around TRY11 to Taksim Square and Aksaray.

● Food and drink at the airport is quite expensive and may cost 4 times more than in the city. It is advisable to bring your own meals from the town if you have a lot of waiting to do at the airport. There is also a supermarket close to the airport metro entrance where you can buy reasonably priced food and drink.
