Considering that rhinoplasty is performed on both male and female patients, it can be said that it is the most performed aesthetic operation in the world.
Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic intervention with different techniques and different results. The plastic surgeon plans the operation with the most appropriate technique and approach to the patient's facial anatomy. He/she does this either through drawings, photographs of the patient or during the operation.
The most feared part of rhinoplasty is tampon withdrawal and postoperative bruises around the eyes. Experiencing these problems in the first few days has become less fearful with the development of new materials and atraumatic techniques.
Regardless of the technique, the aim of rhinoplasty is to obtain a nose that is natural, suitable for the anatomy of the face and provides breathing function. With exaggerated demands, a nose that is excessively minimized according to the face with an excessively raised nasal tip indicates failure rather than success. Considering that what the surgeon shapes is cartilage, bone and soft tissue, it should be known that it is impossible to make a nose similar to drawings and photographs of other people. The plastic surgeon achieves the best and aesthetic nose for his/her patient by making personalized planning.
Edema and swelling around the nose and nose after the operation should be considered natural. This edema completely regresses in the first 3 months, and the nose takes its permanent shape between 6 months and 1 year. Before these periods, it should be known that patients' complaints about the shape of the nose are temporary.
