Details

Rhinoplasty, also known as “nose job”, is a plastic surgery procedure performed to reshape, correct, or repair the nose. As well as this procedure is done usually to enhance the appearance of the nose, it is also very effective treatment to correct or modify the functional problems of the nose or nasal cartilage.  Whatever the purpose is, rhinoplasty has always been a very popular procedure all around the world. During the surgery, the nasal cartilages and bones are modified, or tissue is added to improve the visual appeal, functional capacity and breathing ability or repair nasal fractures.


Who Is This For?

  • Healthy individuals who desire to change the appearance (shape or size) of their nose
  • Healthy individuals who needs to correct their nose disfigurement arising from birth defect, accident or trauma
  • Facial growth should be complete before undergoing rhinoplasty surgery

Treatment Duration

1-3 hours

Potential Risks & Side Effects

  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Nose bleeding
  • Unsatisfactory (e.g. asymmetrical) nasal appearance
  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Scarring
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Infection

Recovery Time

  • The first few days after the rhinoplasty procedure is the most difficult, since patients may have some discomfort. Swelling and bruising are normal at this stage. Since the nose will be covered with an external splint, patients cannot breathe through the nose.
  • In the second week after surgery, swelling and bruising begins to fade. Patients may return to work and their social activities at this stage. However, they should avoid strenuous activities for 3 to 6 weeks.
  • About a month after rhinoplasty surgery, most patients begin to look and feel healed.
  • After 2-3 months, patients may still feel numbness at the tip of the nose. This is normal and gradually begins to decrease.
  • Postoperative swelling will go away over the next 6 months after the surgery.
  • Seeing the final result of the surgery may take up to 6 months.

Success Rate: 85-90%.

Alternative Treatments

Non-surgical rhinoplasty or injection rhinoplasty

How Does it Work?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a reconstructive surgery that is performed to enhance the appearance of the nose or improve the nasal functions. There are 4 different types of rhinoplasty surgery, and they all have different goals.

For your online consultation, we will kindly ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide down below, so we can evaluate your case.


Reduction Rhinoplasty

Reduction rhinoplasty is designed so as to enhance the nasal features such as the bridge, nasal tip and nostrils. Suppose you have a hump on your nose, the surgeon will reduce the bone and cartilage material that causes that “hump”. If it is your nose tip that needs an operation, the cartilage tissues forming the support under the tip will be partially removed or reshaped. The entire goal of a reduction rhinoplasty is to enhance your nose appearance by making it more proportional to your facial features.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty

Augmentation rhinoplasty can be used for both aesthetic and functional purposes. Typically, it is performed to reshape the nasal features. Your nose tip can also be augmented using this procedure. The grafts may also be placed to camouflage irregularities of the upper or lower lateral cartilages.

Post-traumatic Rhinoplasty

Considering that nasal fractures are the most common fractures of the adult facial skeleton, you may also experience midface trauma that can result from nasal deformity/deviation and nasal airflow impedance. Your surgeon will perform rhinoplasty to correct any deformities that occurred as a result of a traumatic injury. This type of rhinoplasty is not suitable for aesthetic concerns.

Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

During the reconstructive rhinoplasty, your surgeon’s aim is to restore your nose to a more normal state both aesthetically and functionally. Generally, this requires reshaping the nose and replacing the missing skin and cartilage tissue. Since reconstructive rhinoplasty is relatively complex than the other types of rhinoplasty, you may need a second surgery later on.

Rhinoplasty procedure can also be combined with these surgeries:

Septoplasty: This is a surgical procedure that aims to correct your deviated septum. A deviated septum can cause breathing difficulties and, in some cases, facial pain. With septoplasty surgery, the surgeon can restore your nasal functions.

Alar Base Reduction: This procedure aims to make the sizes of nostrils even, reduce the tip or the overall size of the nose.

Cartilage Transplantation: This is an advanced option. If you don’t have a sufficient amount of cartilage to reconstruct the nose, the surgeon will take cartilage from your ears or ribs. This is an ideal surgery if you have had rhinoplasty surgery before. 


What Does Rhinoplasty Surgery Involve?

We will plan and customize the whole procedure so as to suit your personal preferences, needs, and the clinics’ practices. Although it can differ from one patient to the other, there are quite a few stages involved in this procedure. To give you an idea, here is what you can expect:

Anesthesia

We have a numerous number of clinics that specialize in rhinoplasty surgery, and they offer various types of anesthesia, such as the following:

  • Local anesthesia

       IV Sedation

       General Anesthesia

Your surgeon will decide on the type of anesthesia that best suits your needs.

The Surgical Process

  • Once you are anesthetized, the surgeon will start the procedure.
  • Your surgeon will make tiny incisions between or inside your nostrils.
  • After the incisions are made, the surgeon will separate your skin from the cartilage or bone and he/she will start to reshape the process.
  • If your new nose requires additional cartilage, the surgeon will remove some from your ears or deep inside the nose. In some cases, your surgeon can also take cartilage from your ribs.
  • If you are suffering from a deviated septum, the surgeon can correct it during the surgery to improve your breathing functions.
  • Once the underlying structure of your nose is reshaped as per your own desires, the surgeon will close the nasal skin, tissues, and suture the incisions.
  • The surgeon may place a plastic or metal splint on your nose, or nasal packs inside your nostrils.


What Should I Expect After Rhinoplasty Surgery?

After the surgery, you will spend the first night at the hospital, under your doctors’ supervision. The recovery process will take several weeks, and you may feel pain or discomfort in the first two days, but your doctor will prescribe meds that will help relieve pain.

First Week After the Surgery

During the first week after the procedure, you may feel uncomfortable, and you’re expected to:

  • Wear a cast on your nose
  • Feel sore, and experience some breathing difficulties.
  • Wear a compression bandage under your nose to soak up any fluid or blood
  • Experience discomfort inside your nose
  • Have swelling for the first 3 days
  • Notice some bruises.

Second Week After the Surgery

In the second week, you will have to see a doctor and have your cast and packing removed. During this period, you can expect the following:

  • The dissolvable sutures will start to disappear
  • Swelling and bruises on your nose will start to disappear
  • Your appearance will gradually get back to normal and you can make public appearances.
  • You can return to work in the second week (that is if your job doesn’t involve physical activities).
  • The incision will start to shrink and become smaller and smaller.

Third Week After the Surgery

From this moment onwards, you will begin to notice the results of the surgery. To be precise, here is what you should expect:

  • Considering that the swelling will be minimum at this point, you will see subtle changes on your nose.
  • You can resume your daily activities even physical exercising.
  • Your incision will be a bit reddish, but it can easily be covered using makeup.

Week Four and Further

A month after the surgery, most of the swelling will be gone. 95% of the swelling will be gone in the period between the 3rd and 6th month. You can expect to see the final results after a year.


FAQ

Is Rhinoplasty Painful?

During the surgery, patients cannot feel any pain or discomfort due to the anesthesia used. After the surgery if the patients experience certain amount of pain, they may use medications prescribed by their surgeons to relieve postoperative pain.

Will I Need to Stay In The Hospital?

Apart from the rare cases, patients are usually able to safely leave the hospital the same day after rhinoplasty surgery.

How Long Does It Take for Postoperative Swelling to Go Down After Rhinoplasty?

Postoperative swelling and some bruising around the eyes begin to improve after the third day and it can last up to two weeks.

    I would highly recommend using flymedi as from the very first interaction I could tell Mustafa knew what he was talking about, I asked for a treatment in which I thought I needed and he then quickly corrected me which showed they are educated and not just here to collect money. From the moment my ticket was booked I was asking Mustafa question all hours of the night and surprisingly he would respond at anytime even though we are in different time zones that is a very comforting thing. He knew the answer to every question I asked which left me to believe I made the right decision as I had doubts everyday Everything went smooth from the moment I was picked up from the airport in a private Mercedes Vito and taken straight to the hospital. The hospital room I had was clean and the staff where very friendly I met with Prof Dr Odan tan the next morning where he told me what was going to happen in my operation which I believe went well. I have 3-5 months till I see my results but I can semi see them already Use flymedi you won’t be disappointed!!!

    My experience with Flymedi was excellent. during my stay in turkey i had assistance and guiding 24/7, so i didn't even feel like i was in a foreign country. Mr. Mustafa helped me with the clinic finding process and the best doctor for my preferences, but also with answers to all my questions related to the surgery. At Dr. Ozge Ergun's clinic, where i had the rhinoplasty, i had a great experience and treatment. The doctor's kindness and dedication are very easy to see. Besides that he is a pleasant person which makes you feel at ease with your thoughts before the surgery. The nurses are very caring and careful. The saloon where i stayed for one night after the surgery can be easily compared to a 5-star hotel room in terms of appliances, hygiene.Overall i am extremely happy with my decision and discovery of Flymedi during my research.

    My visit to Istanbul was a little bit scary at the first sight but I could really relax when I finally came to the hotel. Most of the time I had a contact with Diana from Flymedi: during my time in Holland and Istanbul. When ik had questions or something else to discus she was there for me and texted also in her free time. What can I say about a doctor? Dr. Ozge is very experienced and good surgeon. The septorhinoplasty was going well and I didn't have any complications. The swelling was going down a little bit slower comparing to other people but these are individual differences of each human body and you can do nothing about that. I want to thank all people who were taking care of me that week in Istanbul and also when I came back to Holland. Especially I want to thank Diana from Flymedi for her time spending with me!

    Flymedi first got in touch with me when I was decided upon what surgery/which cosmetic surgeon to choose from. As you can imagine it’s almost an impossible decision, but when Nadia, from Flymedi, messaged me it made it so much more achievable. Very quickly she put me in touch with surgeons who she felt would match my needs/different criteria that I was looking for. She communicated with these surgeons on my behalf and helped me make the right choice for me. Throughout the process she has made herself available to me; before surgery, the days leading up to it and even after.

    So happy I chose flymediAfter enquiring about rhinoplasty via flymedi’s website I was contacted right away by the lovely Nadia. She sent me links to view different surgeons work and read reviews. We talked about what I wanted and she recommended Dr Hadi Nural in Antalya. After researching a bit further and talking to Nadia I felt confident enough to go ahead and book.I can honestly say I’m so happy with everything, Nadia was amazing throughout the whole experience, she patiently answered all my many many questions, and was available at all times for me. Dr Nural is a wonderful surgeon, I would recommend him to anyone considering rhinoplasty. Not only is he a plastic surgeon with 29 years experience but he’s also an ENT specialist so now my breathing is so much better as well. I had absolutely no bruising after my surgery- a testimony to his skill! Only some swelling on days 2/3/4. Thank you flymedi!

    I used flymedi for a rhinoplasty and Labiaplasty in Turkey. Nadia from flymedi helped me plan my trip. She helped me pick my clinic and setup my appointment with only a weeks notice. She kept in touch with me progress through the whole process and even checking in weeks later. The package I chose was just the surgery with medication and anesthesia included but they offer options for hotel and transportation. In euros, 4500 for my package. Best deal since in the U.S rhinoplasty is 12,000 dollarsThe clinic I went to was vanity aesthetics. Julia, the doctor’s assistant, translated everything and made sure I was comfortable before going into surgery. The surgery went well.Overall, flymedi made everything possible for my short notice trip..The clinic was professional and friendly.. Istanbul is safe and beautifull.. I love my new vagina and nose :) but it does hurt :)
