Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
Nose job can be applied to people who have congenital or acquired deformities that cause by previous trauma or surgery.
What are the most requested changes by our patients in rhinoplasty?
The most desirable changes by our patients applying for rhinoplasty are the reduction of the nose arch, the shortening of the nose length, the more pronounced and slightly elevated tip, and the correction of the curvature of the nose. The revision of previously operated noses. Depending on the genetic characteristics of the person, it is also often desirable to elevate the nasal bridge in, for example, Asian patients or thick skin.
What is a minimum age for a rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can be done at 17 in men, at 16 in women. Parental approval and refusal are compulsory for patients who wish to undergo surgery before the age of 18 years. Individual consultant and assessment of psychological status is important in all age groups, but more important at these ages. Emotional outbursts and impatience are more likely to be pre-screened. In this period, those who require surgery should consider that it is a surgery that requires a healing process and that it should not have a higher meaning.
What would be the oldest age to safely undergo Rhinoplasty?
General health must be in a good condition for surgery too. Those who provides these conditions may be operated. I will elucidate the patient candidates related to this in consideration of the loss of elasticity in the skin and ligaments during advanced ages. As the elasticity of the skin decreases, changes in bone and cartilaginous tissues under the skin make adaptation of the nose skin difficult. For example, in a thin-skinned patient with reduced skin elasticity in advanced age, it is more likely to have wrinkles on the skin than in a patient who has the same amount of bridge at a younger age. We are making our surgery plans and surgical technics with care about disconditions and let you inform before the surgery, too.
What are my suggestions for rhinoplasty surgery before the consultation?
We recommend that you note any questions or concerns about this surgery before the consultation. In this way, you can get a clear answers more efficiently. It is useful to conduct research on the internet to have general knowledge before the surgery. But we often see that some of the information on the internet is causing confusion and misinformation. For this reason, it does not take the place of the information at the time of face-to-face consultation. Our knowledge consists of both intensive trainings and experiences. Therefore, your doctor will guide you in the best way about your specific situations and what can be done in your case.
What kind of expectations does patients have about the shape of the nose?
There are some spesific situaitons that we often encounter in our patient candidates who plan to have a rhinoplasty. Focusing on a distinct region of the nose and complaints about this region; For example, my bridge is too much, my nose is down, my nose is curved, my nostrils are too wide, etc. In this case, it is usually not noticeable by patients with other problems and they only want to correct this area. Although this can be achieved in a small number of patients, in most cases the changing nasal dynamics may need to be assessed and modified. It should not be forgotten that the nose is an alive and dynamic build. The likeness of a person or figure of the nose is desired; this mainly includes other changes in the facial rather than the just nasal shape. Therefore, it is important to act with complementary approach in such a case. Let us not forget that you are the one we are operating on, and every detail of each individual has quite different characteristics. Nevertheless, I am in favor of specifying such requests without hesitation. In this regard, I have the opportunity to share with our patient candidates our realistic thinking about the degree of surgery expectancy in their mind and whether this will happen or not. Do not compare yourself with another person who had surgery and therefore expect similar results after surgery; successful aesthetic surgeries increase the courage of people on this subject and it is important to note that it is possible to obtain similar results but different individuals have different properties not only in the nose bone and skin but also in the healing process.
What are the points to take into consideration before surgery?
It is very important for you tell your doctor about your general health conditions within all details before the surgery. Knowing these conditions before the surgery can help take precautions about the problems that may occur during and after surgery. With these precautions, it is possible to avoid situations that both negatively affect your overall health and the result of surgery. For example, blood pressure regulation on patients with hypertension,reaching normal levels in thyroid hormone deficiencies or excess,regular follow-up in diabetes (sugar) patients,normalization of HbA1c levels and blood levels in case of significant iron deficiency is needed for the best results of surgery and wound healing. In addition, it should be clearly stated that routine or used medicines and vitamins, herbal medicines and teas, cigarette and alcohol usage and other habits may affect the anesthesia and the operation process.
Ethnic Rhinoplasty provides an aesthetic image in harmony with the face, without making an incision on columella and protecting the natural ligaments and tissues of the nose.
Revision rhinoplasty requires more detailed analysis, patience and experience, as in any revision surgery.
