Aesthetic nose surgery is one of the most difficult operations of plastic surgery in my opinion. Because while trying to achieve an aesthetically beautiful result in the nose, it should also be corrected if the functional result is not impaired in the patient’s breathing and even if there is a problem. Therefore, they are the surgeries that should be done very carefully. It is also a fact that after the first surgery, which we call revision, the second and sometimes the third surgeries, where some minor deformities or some pleasing details are corrected, are mostly determined in this group. Therefore, successful performance of the first surgery will reduce the possibility of this revision. Nevertheless, I recommend that a person planning to have an aesthetic nose surgery always keep in mind the possibility of a revision.
Nose surgeries are performed with two techniques, either closed or open. Plastic Surgeons choose one of these techniques according to their own experience and the needs of the patient.
Nose Aesthetics Open Technique
Nose Aesthetics Closed Technique
My Personal Experiences in Nose Aesthetics;
As for my personal experience, I prefer the closed technique in the first place with the thoughts such as less postoperative swelling and less traumatization of tissues. However, I prefer the open technique if the patient’s nasal deformity is particularly severe towards the tip of the nose or if a very detailed surgical intervention will be performed. However, according to my experience, many patients’ problems can be solved with closed technique without the need for open technique.
Septumdeviation and turbinate enlargement
Septum deviation and concha enlargement that may be secondary to it are among the main causes of breathing problems. The correction of this disorder sometimes accompanies aesthetic surgeries, from time to time, patients only apply with this problem. If it is to be performed together with aesthetic surgery, taking septum and concha surgery to the second plan by keeping aesthetic concerns in the foreground may cause breathing difficulties to continue after the surgery. In patients with only this problem, some aesthetic problems may occur in the nose from time to time after this surgery. Therefore, aesthetic and functional harmony should be provided very well in patients.
Nasal Filling: An aesthetic appearance without surgery can be achieved with nasal filling made in suitable patients who do not want surgery or have some minor deformities after surgery.
