Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic nose surgery which shapes and improves the appearance of nose.
Reconstructive rhinoplasty is applied to correct trauma-induced deformities and congenital anomalies.
This operation is based on the principles of changing the angle of the nose, shrinking the nose nostrils, lifting or changing the shape of the nose tip.
Also, during operation respiratory problems as nasal turbinate hypertrophy and curvature of septum preventing breath intake, can be corrected.
After plastic surgeon examines the anatomical features of your nose and considering your wishes rhinoplasty can be made with open or closed technique.
Operations release nasal bone skin from cartilage and reshape these structures again. Skin is fitted onto this reshaped structure of cartilage and bone.
Open rhinoplasty is a procedure of applying very thin sutures on incisions made on the outside and inside of the nose.
Nowadays, if septoplasty was not done on patients who have no excessive curvature, nasal packing is not done.
However, slippery, tumescent and easily extractable packs must be applied to the patients who need.
