Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli performs Rhinoplasty surgery with the latest techniques used at the present time to remove deformities and nasal problems and make patients satisfied with themselves after the surgery.
Since the beauty of the face is the main factor in dealing with the outside world, and the nose is considered one of the most important organs affecting the beauty of the face, as the deformation of the nose leads to psychological and social problems, so people in general and women in particular resort to rhinoplasty to gain satisfaction with themselves.
● What is Rhinoplasty Surgery?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure for patients who are not happy with their nose and older than 18 years old to change the size, shape, or proportions of their nose. In addition, it may be done to repair deformities from an injury, correct a birth defect or improve some breathing difficulties.
● How is nose aesthetic surgery performed?
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Although it varies according to the procedures to be performed on the nose, the surgery lasts from 2.5 hours to 3.5 hours.
Many different techniques or many surgeries can be performed together within the rhinoplasty procedure, and this is done through the preparation process, which is very important, in which the expectations of patients are identified and the type of nose structure they want is planned with the help of images and applications.
Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli changes the shape of the nasal bones or cartilage as needed and as planned in advance and corrects the deviation in the wall between the two sides of the nose if it is deviated or crooked to improve breathing. The surgery may also include breaking some parts of the bones.
● What do we aim for in the surgery?
The most important thing for Rhinoplasty is truly understanding what the patients want. Rhinoplasty differs a bit from other operations, so we perform these surgeries after we are convinced that the patient’s psychology can be completely resolved.
Therefore, the operation is planned, the case analyzed, and the shape of the nose that the patient desires is drawn. Patients’ requests may differ, some patients like small noses, other patients like pug nose, some like straight nose, some want natural one, even with a smooth nasal hump.
Since each patient comes with a distinct request, the operation plan should be formulated taking into account the patient’s needs.
● What is the advantage of Rhinoplasty surgery?
Since Rhinoplasty is a procedure that changes the appearance of the nose or improves breathing, so if the patient also has breathing problems, the related problems are solved as well as long as the problem is included in the specialization it might be excess cartilage or might be nasal polyps that are also called “concha ” we can also fix these problems too.
● What problems should be discussed with the patients?
Psychological problems that disturb the patients must be analyzed. Some patients complain about the nasal hump, some of them think their nasal tip is too low or the nasal wing is too wide. Each patient has a different problem, Therefore, even if the Rhinoplasty procedure is the same, distinct solutions need to be created.
● How is the recovery period?
After the Rhinoplasty procedure, the patients are taken to the service room. They need to stay in the hospital for a night. The next day, medical examinations are performed on them and if everything is fine, they leave the hospital after giving the recommendations and necessary medications.
Swelling and bleeding are very slight. Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli safely removes the tampons and silicone sheets a week after the surgery so patients can resume their daily routine 7 days after the surgery.
● What are the tips that can help the Rhinoplasty healing process?
During the first week of the surgery, the patients must put some ice on the nose, sleep on the back, and keep the medical tape on the nose for a week, as it is removed by the doctor when visiting the hospital a week later.
A nose massage is very necessary, and it should be continued for 3 months of the surgical operation.
● Will there be any bruising or swelling?
The nose might seem swelled and bigger for the first month, it’s normal for many Rhinoplasty patients, so don’t be afraid of that. They’re all temporary. Odema and swelling will disappear by 80% in the first month.
● How much time do you need to get the final result?
After 6 weeks, your bones will have completely healed and your nose will begin to take its new shape. It is normal that you may feel sensationally numb around your nose area, this will not last and you will regain the sense within 12 months.
It’s not something like “We did it and there you go”, the first result may take some time for six months to a year, so patients need to be patient.
Particularly, the nasal tip might seem a bit higher or it might seem swelled at first, so patients should remember that they’re temporary.
One year after the surgery, we can see the final result. After the point, the procedure is done, patients can move, can start living their life with a new nose.
