Cosmetic Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Rhinoplasty is a surgical intervention that aims to change the structure of the nose and bring it into a healthier and more aesthetic form. This intervention to the bones and cartilage tissue in the nose is effective in increasing the quality of life of the person.


The nose, located in the midline of the face, is the most important organ that catches the eye at first glance. Even a small change in the nose is instantly noticeable. For this reason, it is preferred by people who have a deformity in their nose or a related health problem. People who are uncomfortable with the appearance of the nose, even if they do not have health problems, turn to plastic surgery.

In particular, rhinoplasty is one of the most preferred procedures related to rhinoplasty. The competence of the specialist is very important in order to have the desired natural appearance. In rhinoplasty operations, the specialist works like a sculptor and shapes the nose structure.


Rhinoplasty, which is a plastic surgery method, is not just a cosmetic procedure. When deemed necessary, it should also be applied for health reasons. It is an operation that should be applied for the removal of congenital or trauma-induced deformities. This application, which is the solution to many problems, results perfectly in the hands of Promed Clinic experts.

Rhinoplasty is applied in one or more of the conditions such as difficulty in breathing, sinusitis problems, snoring, aesthetic anxiety. You can apply for a rhinoplasty operation to breathe comfortably and at the same time gain an aesthetic appearance.

Shaping the tip of the nose, arranging the nostrils, treating the concha enlargement, optimizing the angle of the nose, eliminating the curvature of the nasal bone are all possible with rhinoplasty. For all these reasons, it is one of the most preferred operations in facial aesthetics.


The operation is performed with the general anesthesia method, but the specialist may prefer the local anesthesia method for some minor touches. Before the operation, the type of treatment is decided with personal interviews. There are two techniques, open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty. In the closed rhinoplasty technique, the incisions are inside the nose. It is a technique applied through the nostrils without making an incision outside the nose, and it is a difficult application because the doctor's field of view will be narrow. In open rhinoplasty, the incisions are made under the nose and the doctor's field of view is wider. In this way, an easier intervention takes place. There is no difference in applications other than the incision area. The operation time is an average of 2 hours.

Rhinoplasty operation can be performed in combination with other plastic surgery operations. Combined surgeries are the process of performing two or more operations at the same time. With this method, people get through the healing process of more than one operation at once. Procedures such as chin surgeries and lip augmentation can be performed simultaneously with rhinoplasty.


There are some tricks to consider in the post-operative period. Most information is conveyed to the person performing the operation by the specialist doctor. After the operation, there is a splint on the nose and a tampon in the inner part of the nose. Mild bleeding after the operation is expected. Tampons are used for these bleedings.

In the first 1-2 weeks, it is recommended to sleep with a pillow that will keep the head high. This precaution is necessary both for bleeding and prevents the increase of bruising and swelling while sleeping and accelerates the healing process. Immediately after rhinoplasty, the person may feel sluggish and tired. He can get through this process by going home and resting for a while.
