What is Cosmetic Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)?
Cosmetic nose surgery (Rhinoplasty) is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures that give favorable and extremely satisfactory results.
It is important to carefully preserve your nasal functions during a cosmetic procedure, in order to ensure the success of your surgery both esthetically and functionally; in other words, in order to enable you to breathe comfortably after the surgery. If before surgery you have a problem that prevents you from breathing comfortably, such as nasal septum deviation, concha hypertrophy, or sinusitis, it should be solved with appropriate techniques during the same operation.
Surgical techniques and technologies used in cosmetic and functional surgeries of the nose, which is the most prominent and important anatomic and aesthetic structure located in the middle of the face, are constantly developing with intent to achieve better visual and functional results as well as ensure a faster and more comfortable recovery period after surgery.
In order to ensure your rhinoplasty to give aesthetic and functional results that can be considered to be successful based on the current criteria, the surgeon who will perform your surgery should be extremely experienced in the field of aesthetic nose surgery and should also closely follow and implement the up-to-date information about this subject as well as surgical techniques and technologies like piezoelectric (ultrasonic) surgery.
The most important criterion of success in rhinoplasty operations is patient satisfaction and this can be possible only if the nose has the desired appearance and the patient is able to breathe comfortably after the surgery.
For achieving the visual results that you desire, it is of great importance to make sure that your doctor fully understood your expectations from your rhinoplasty operation, in the preoperative period. The three-dimensional digital imaging systems that have begun to be used in recent years enable you to fully express your expectations from the surgery, by providing digital images of the possible surgical results; and on the other hand, help your surgeon—who will perform your surgery—plan the interventions that will meet such expectations.
