Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a rhinoplasty session take?
Rhinoplasty takes approximately 1-4 hours.
Does it cause pain?
Patients feel no pain during the rhinoplasty procedure. The procedure is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia.
Does rhinoplasty involve an open nose surgery or a closed one?
The open technique is performed in our clinic. The open technique allows us to maintain an excellent field of view during the operation so that we can intervene more precisely on the dorsum of the nose, the nasal wings, and the cartilages and bones in the nasal architecture; which uphold the nose and keep it straight. The open technique makes it easier to solve not only the aesthetic issues but also the functional problems (nasal congestion).
Can rhinoplasty be performed without anesthesia?
General anesthesia is usually preferred during rhinoplasty.
Will there be bruising and swelling after the surgery?
Any bruising and swelling after surgical interventions is considered normal. Because the region is intervened from outside, a traumatic effect occurs in the tissues. Differences in the severity of bruising and swelling can be seen depending on individual variations in the body reactions and the expertise of the surgeon performing the rhinoplasty.
Will there be any scars left after rhinoplasty?
Based on the technique used during the rhinoplasty surgery, there may be no visible scarring left after the operation. Today, scar marks are not problems after rhinoplasty.
Will any tamponades be placed?
Tamponades are usually placed after the operation. However, tamponades may not be placed thanks to newly developed techniques. This way, patients restore their usual lifestyles faster, experiencing a more comfortable recovery process.
What should be done in the night before the surgery?
You should not eat anything after 12:00 pm. It is also recommended that you take a shower as you may have difficulties in taking a shower after nose surgery. There is nothing you need to do, specific to the nose surgery.
When do I return to normal life?
Getting back to normal life after a surgical intervention depends on the procedures performed. The doctor’s recommendations should be followed.
How long will I have to stay in Istanbul?
A week will be sufficient for you to stay there after the rhinoplasty.
Will I experience any problems with breathing?
The procedure requires breathing through the mouth during the recovery period. There will be no irregularities or difficulties in breathing after the procedure.
Can I swim after the surgery?
It is not advised to swim at least 3 weeks after the procedure. After this period, you can swim only in places where you are sure of their cleanliness.
Can I smoke after surgery?
Smoking is not advised after the operation because of its unfavorable effects on blood circulation. This can lead to increased postoperative risks.
When will my nose get its final shape after the surgery?
It is necessary to wait for the regional bruises and swelling to recover completely to see the new shape of the nose. At least a period from 6 months to 1 year is necessary for these processes.
When can I return to work after the surgery?
The doctor’s recommendations on returning to work should be followed after the surgery. This period is usually short for people desk workers; who were not required to engage in strenuous activities. For heavy working patients, this period may be extended. The type of surgery is critical to determine the length of this period after the surgery.
Is it possible to develop a deformation at the tip of the nose?
The condition that is perceived as the dropping of the nasal tip after rhinoplasty is actually a normal process. After the recovery of the swollen nasal tip due to the developing edema following the surgery, the appearance of the nasal tip aligns with the plans made before the intervention. The swollen tip of the nose may be perceived by the patients as dropping.
When can I wear eyeglasses?
Eyeglasses cannot be worn immediately after nose aesthetics. It is inconvenient to wear eyeglasses because the changes made in the nose have been made recently. Instead, contact lenses should be preferred. Eyeglasses can be used after 6 months following the surgery at the earliest depending on the approval of the doctor.
Will I have difficulties in eating after the surgery?
No difficulties in eating will be experienced after the surgery. However, you should have a diet consisting of warm, soft, and fiber-rich foods for the first 24-48 hours after the surgery.
