Rhinoplasty, with its universal name, is so advanced that it is now both easier and more comfortable, and the results look natural and much more beautiful.
What is Rhinoplasty(Nose Job)?
Nose job is a plastic surgery performed by otolaryngologists and / or plastic surgeons in an operating room, under general anesthesia, with one of two different surgical methods, closed and open, in order to reconstruct the nose shape. When the nose job is evaluated in the low-risk operations group, the patient is prepared for the surgery with general surgery and general anesthesia procedures. The surgery requires hospitalization for a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 2 days. After that, you will need a few days for recovery. It is useful to know that you will need to take a short break from your social and business life.
Since the nose is at the center of the face, it is the first organ that catches the eye. Aesthetic nose surgery is performed to solve aesthetic and functional nose problems:

Before the surgery, what kind of nose the patient wants, complaints, and breathing difficulties, if any, are evaluated in detail. After determining how close the existing bone, cartilage and skin structure is to achieve the desired nose shape of the patient, after mutual agreement, surgery preparations starts.

Septum Deviation Surgery
Septum deviation, which is one of the most common nasal problems, appears especially as a breathing problem. The cartilage and bone structure that separates the nostrils and passes through the middle of the nose is called the septum. Septum deviation is the name we give to the warping of this structure. Nasal bone is corrected with septum deviation surgery. As it can be clearly seen from the outside, only internal curvature may be present. The most common symptoms of septum deviation are:
- Difficulty breathing
- Nasal congestion
- Nose bleeding
- Dry mouth
- Postnasal drip
- Persistent throat infection
Septum deviation surgery is not an aesthetic nose surgery, there is no change in the aesthetic appearance of the nose after the operation. Depending on the condition of the curvature, it can be performed with local or general anesthesia. The purpose of septum deviation surgery is to allow the patient to breathe through the nose and to eliminate health problems.
After Septum Deviation Surgery
The postoperative situation varies depending on the severity of the curvature and in which part of the septum it is concentrated. Swelling and pain is something we expect. After the first day, the pain disappears significantly. Swelling also subside within a few days. It may take up to a month for intranasal wounds to heal. Although it is rare, it is not unusual for his period extend for another week or two.

- Do not bite or apply pressure
- Don’t hold your sneeze
- Do not take a hot shower
- Do not neglect to apply cold compresses for the first two days.
