1) How many hours does rhinoplasty surgery take?
The surgeries take an average of 3 hours, but there may be surgeries that last 2 hours, as well as surgeries that take up to 5 hours.
The operation time is as long as the time we can reach the targeted nose shape.
2) Will I have any pain during or after the nose surgery?
Since nose surgery is performed under general anesthesia, the patient does not feel any pain during the operation. In the first week after surgery, most of our patients do not have any pain complaints. After the third day, most of our patients do not even need painkillers.
3) Will there be swelling and bruising on my face after the nose surgery?
With the emerging technology and the use of new medical instruments, bruises and swellings do not occur in general after the surgery. The swelling or soft tissue edema that may occur regresses within 7-10 days.
4) Will there be any scars after the nose surgery?
Every cut on the skin leaves a scar. When the word "surgical scar" is mentioned, big, ugly stitches come to mind.
Nevertheless, since the incisions and stitches opened in aesthetic nose operations are made in a much more controlled manner, they are very difficult to see with the naked eye.
Wound healing in the area where the incision was made after the operation is completed exactly in the 12th month.
The stitches thrown dissolve on the 10th day. Although it varies from person to person in this region, the scar is usually too small to be seen with the naked eye.
5) How long does it take to heal after the nose surgery?
Although the healing process varies according to the structure of the skin, it is usually 70% completed in the 2nd month, 80% in the 6th month and close to 100% in the 12th month.
This process may take up to 2 years in thick skins, and may decrease up to 6 months in thinner skins.
The recovery process is closely related to the genetic structure of the patient, chronic diseases, age, alcohol-cigarette consumption and nutritional habits.
Bu süreç, kalın ciltlerde 2 yıla kadar uzayabilirken ince ciltlerde ise 6 aya kadar düşebilir.
İyileşme süreci hastanın genetik yapısı, kronik hastalıkları, yaşı, alkol-sigara tüketimi ve beslenme alışkanlıkları ile de yakından ilgilidir.
6) Is tampon removal very painful post surgery?
In our surgeries, we place a silicone tube tampon inside the nose to prevent adhesions that may cause nasal congestion in the long term.
We remove this tampon preferably within 7 days. This process takes 15-20 seconds in total and is a painless procedure.
7) Do I need to stay in the hospital after the surgery?
Since the nose surgery is performed under general anesthesia, our patients stay in the hospital for 1 night in case of possible light bleeding and other conditions during the post-anesthesia follow-up and the first night after the operation.
The next day, after the patient’s check up in the morning we discharge them.
8) Is there a drop in the nose post-operation?
After rhinoplasty operations, depending on the technique applied, there may be a drop in the tip of the nose between 2-5 mm. This situation can upset all the calculations made regarding the nasal skeleton and cause “pollybeak deformity”. As a result of the technique we use in the surgery, there is a maximum decrease of 2 mm at the tip of the nose and it does not adversely affect the final result.
9) Can I wear glasses post-op?
You can wear glasses two months after the surgery.
10) I'm thinking about getting surgery, how can I contact you?
You must send us your name, surname, e-mail address, photos and necessary medical history via our Whatsapp communication lines.
11) How can I get a price for nose surgery?
You should share your nose pictures with us, also whether you have had surgery before, if any, your date of surgery and all other details regarding the previous surgery.
