The nose is an aesthetic and functional organ that determines the face shape significantly. Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most commonly applied modern aesthetic surgery operations today. Aesthetic nose surgery can be described as nose shaping surgery in a broad sense. In terms of aesthetic surgeons, the nose should be compatible with the facial proportions and harmony of the nose, as well as the social, social and personal characteristics of the person. Aesthetic nose surgery can reduce or enlarge the nose, change the shape of the nose tip or belt, narrow the width of the nostrils or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Aesthetic and function are equally important in nasal surgery. Therefore, the problems of breathing (deviation) must be corrected simultaneously during aesthetic nose surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery can increase your self-confidence by changing your physical appearance but may not make other people treat you differently.

It is very important for the patient to express his / her problems and expectations related to his / her nose to his / her doctor in full for the success of the operation. Therefore, a clear discussion of nasal problems and expectations during both the initial examination and the preoperative visit will guide the surgeon in determining the operation plan. There are multiple criteria that affect the outcome of plastic surgery. The results obtained with thin skinned and not very large noses are more successful than thick, oily skinned and very big noses. The earliest age of nasal surgery is 15 years for young girls and 16-17 years for boys. Previous nose surgery increases the difficulty of new rhinoplasty.

In aesthetic nose operations, not everyone is treated with the same surgical technique as a standard. For example, we apply the technique of open rhinoplasty in noses that have undergone previous surgery or have very curved noses. For simpler noses, we choose one of the other classical methods.
Surgery is performed in a full-fledged hospital and under general anesthesia.

At the end of the operation, a nasal tampon and a plaster splint are placed on the nasal back. Buffer 1-2. days, a plaster splint on the back of the nose is taken a week after surgery. Swelling and bruises may occur under the eyes. The bruises disappear completely within 7-10 days. Proportionally the majority of swelling under the eye disappears within 10-14 days. There is little or no postoperative pain. This pain can be easily eliminated with oral painkillers. Visible edema disappears within a month. However, it may take 3-6 months for the edema in the nose to pass completely. The nose takes its final shape within 6 months. In the postoperative period, it is recommended that the person protect his nose from impacts for 1.5-2 months and not wear glasses during this period.
