When many people hear the word ‘rhinoplasty’ they associated it to a’’nose job’’. This is because ‘rhino’ actually means nose or nasal and ‘plasty’ means to modify or beautify. In fact, rhinoplasty is simply a permanent nasal surgical procedure that can be both aesthetic as well as functional. Functional rhinoplasty typically deals with the problems caused by the nasal septum, breathing problems. Whereas, cosmetic rhinoplasty deals with the aesthetical aspects. The purpose of a cosmetic nose surgery is to make a nose suitable for facial profile. The fact that the structure of the nose can be determined by the person, the feeling of lack of self-confidence because of the size, arch or bone protruding of the nose and the desire to get admiration from the external environment, of course, makes rhinoplasty become widespread.
İn general there are two types of rhinoplasty, open and closed.
With an open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes a small bridging incision, called a trans-columellar incision, to adjoin the right and left nostril incisions. The nasal skin can be folded upward and provide open visibility of the lower nasal structure. The open rhinoplasty approach allows for minimal distortion of the nasal cartilage and most individual components of the nasal skeleton can remain undisturbed.
All surgical incisions made for the endonasal approach are made inside of the nostrils. The parallel incisions encircle about half of the nostril lining, but no part of the incision can be seen externally and there is no visible scar. Although not having a visible scar, shortness of the recovery process and easiness of the operation can be a major benefit, there are considerable challenges and technical limitations associated with this approach.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty, also called Rhinofilling, is an alternative to surgical rhinoplasty for certain patients. Instead of surgery, dermal fillers are used to make corrections. However, unlike surgical rhinoplasty, it is not a permanent solution, as injectable fillers last only 6-9 months, on average, so the procedure must be repeated each time the effects wear off in order to maintain correction.
Rhinofilling is not a cure-all solution and does not apply to all situations. It is not recommended for large noses or when the hump is too big. In this situations rhinoplasty is the recommended solution.
– How is Rhinofiller performed?
Rhinofilling is performed at the doctor’s office, Topical numbing cream is applied to the nose. Using a blunt tip cannula, the doctor injects into the areas to be corrected. The combination of numbing cream and the use of the blunt tip cannula makes the experience quite comfortable. As the doctor makes his corrections, you are wide awake and can see the changes as they happen. Want a bit more adjustment? Just ask! Following the injections, you will be given an ice back to minimize any potential swelling, which dissipates quite rapidly. You can immediately see the results and go back to your day’s activities. Rhinofiller normally takes 20 minutes.
One of the most common plastic surgeries that people undergo is rhinoplasty. It is not dangerous – but just like any other medical surgeries, it comes with risks such as bleeding, infection, skin problems, pain or discomfort, serious nasal blockage, etc.
Afar from the risks, rhinoplasty is safe as long as you choose a reliable and highly-accredited rhinoplasty surgeon like Dr. Yakup Avşar. You see, this is where most problems root from – the failure to choose the right medical professional or clinic for the job.
With the modern surgical techniques, combined with the skill, experience and expertise of a trustworthy surgeon, risks are minimised.
An alarplasty, also known as wide nostril reduction surgery, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at changing the shape of the nostrils. This procedure is popular among people willing to modify the look of nasal flaring or make their nose look more symmetrical. So If you have been concerned with the shape of your nose, particularly the width of overall nose and its nostrils, this procedure may have the answer to your concern.
The best outcome is a nose that is in harmony with the facial features. While your rhinoplasty journey may begin with a celebrity inspiration, part of our job is finding a nose shape that looks natural and complements your facial features. Ultimately it is achieving a balance between your ideal and what looks good on your unique face. Because of that, we make a detailed evaluation of the results with our guests before the operation. By using Avşar Mask with 3D Printing Technology, that allows Dr. Avşar to designs the nose which fits to the patient’s face the most. In this technique, the patient’s nose and face are scanned first, and then a 3D shape is created. The data obtained is shaved like a sculpture in the computer environment and the most appropriate nose shape is revealed for patient’s face. the patient is thus much more comfortable.
During pregnancy, the body of the woman will face many changes, from worsening skin, enlarged nose, weight gain, stretch marks, oedema limbs. What makes women have low self-esteem about appearance and hesitate to communicate with people. In spite of that, you should not undergo rhinoplasty or any other elective surgery while pregnant. To do so would put your unborn child at risk. No reputable surgeon would perform rhinoplasty on a pregnant woman.
There are two main reasons why a patient will want further nasal surgery. First, he or she may be unhappy with the appearance of the nose. This is the most common problem, since most people undergo rhinoplasty in the first place to change the nasal appearance. Second, the patient may be experiencing nasal obstruction after surgery. Sometimes the obstruction was present before the first surgery, and did not improve enough. Other times, obstruction can be caused by surgery. So if you are experiencing or you will experience one of these reasons you are likely to undergo a second rhinoplasty surgery.
A rhinoplasty patient should absolutely stop smoking and alcohol four weeks prior and post surgery. Smoking and alcohol both delay and interfere with the healing process. It is not safe to smoke nicotine and tobacco free cigarettes before and after surgery. A patients should wait to engage in intercourse 4-6 weeks post rhinoplasty.
Immediately after rhinoplasty your nose feels blocked and breathing through your nose can be difficult. Your nose can feel congested because of swelling of the inner lining of the nose, this will improve at the end of the first week. Swelling can also alter your sense of smell and this returns over the first 4-6 weeks. Permanent change in sense of smell is very rare.
As the senses of smell and taste are profoundly interconnected, your ability to taste may also be temporarily altered during your recovery from rhinoplasty. As the swelling subsides, your sense of taste will return to normal.
There certainly is a minimum age for rhinoplasty. Dr. Yakup Avşar recommends that teens desiring cosmetic and functional nasal surgery wait until they have gone through puberty. For female patients, this means waiting until they’re at least 17 years old and for males, waiting until they’re at least 18.
A second rhinoplasty operation on the same patient is often called a “rhinoplasty revision” or a “secondary rhinoplasty.” Operating on a nose that has already had surgery is a much more complex procedure than an initial rhinoplasty. You might need rhinoplasty revision if your previous results did not turn out well. Usually, risks are rare or negligible if the procedure is done by the board-certified expert plastic surgeon. Therefore, you need an experienced doctor, like Dr. Yakup Avşar to do your secondary
Breathing problems can occur due to many reasons such as septal deviation, collapsed internal or external nasal valves, turbinate hypertrophy, polyps, vasomotor or allergic rhinitis or even sinusitis.Unless the cause is unknown it is difficult to answer.
As far as rhinoplasty is concerned. Yes, rhinoplasty for breathing problems is very common. Septo-rhinoplasty is a technique that’s used to keep the basic foundation of the nasal structure strong, while fixing breathing difficulties. This technique helps keep the shape of the nose after surgery, reduces the chance of collapse and improves breathing for the patient.
