Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic operation performed to correct or reconstruct the appearance of the nose. Apart from visual purposes, rhinoplasty is also performed to eliminate structural defects that cause breathing problems. It is also a frequently performed surgery in the treatment of nasal fractures.
The size of the nose, shape and angle of the nose can be changed with Rhinoplasty (nose aesthetics), which is the most preferred operation among aesthetic surgeries and is performed to create a beautiful nose that is compatible with the face and liked by the person himself and his surroundings.
In which cases is rhinoplasty necessary?
• If the patient has aesthetic concerns
• If there are breathing problems due to various functional disorders
• In sinus problems
• In nasal fractures
• In case of cleft lip (with other operations)
• In severe facial burns
How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?
With the first examination to be performed by the surgeon, the patient's complaints, the desired visual changes and whether they are suitable for the nose or face structure are evaluated by sharing ideas between the doctor and the patient. With a detailed examination, it can be determined whether there is any problem in the nose that may prevent the rhinoplasty operation. In the absence of a structural problem, general health checks should also be carried out, and the presence of conditions that may interfere with the surgical operation, such as bleeding diseases, should be investigated. It is very important for the doctor and the patient to establish a good communication with the patient in terms of the shape changes to be made in the patients who are determined to be suitable for the operation, and to explain the patient's expectations to the doctor in a good way. The planning phase is completed by taking photographs of the nose from various angles.
When the day of the operation comes, general anesthesia is usually applied depending on the type of surgery. The duration of the operation also varies according to the procedures to be performed. On average, a rhinoplasty operation is expected to take approximately 1.5-2 hours. After the operation, which is performed by choosing the most suitable method for the patient, open or closed methods, the patients are discharged after being kept under observation for a certain period of time.
How long does the recovery process take in rhinoplasty?
After the rhinoplasty operation, it is of great importance to preserve the shape of the nose and the operation area in order to be successful in the treatment applications performed on the nose. Therefore, any trauma that will adversely affect the shape of the nose should be avoided. Apart from trauma, it is extremely important not to use heavy glasses, not to lie on your side or to apply pressure to the nose area for a period of time. After the surgery, resting adequately, especially for the first two or three days, and avoiding strenuous activities for a week will accelerate the healing process. In addition, medications prescribed by the physician should be used regularly. The control examinations given should not be interrupted, and if there is a dressing suggestion, they should be done regularly.
Today, rhinoplasty surgery gives extremely successful results thanks to the advanced techniques applied. Success in rhinoplasty means a nose that is both visually pleasing to the patient and performing its functions in a healthy way.

the age of 35. It is possible for anyone with a medical need to have it done at
any age. One of the first structures to show aging on the human face is the
upper eyelid. Eyelid aesthetics (blepharoplasty) surgery cannot stop the
ongoing aging of the eyelids; but the tired appearance on the face can be

How is upper eyelid aesthetics performed?
Upper eyelid aesthetics (blepharoplasty) or droopy eyelid
surgery is the process of removing excess skin and fat tissue from the area due
to the loss of tension in the skin. The surgical scar does not attract much
attention as it will remain on the upper eyelid and will be open during the
day. However, in order to avoid the scar, an incision is made from the eyelid
fold line and aesthetic stitches are applied. Of course, this deformation of
the skin does not occur only on the eyelid, so it gives better cosmetic results
when applied together with forehead lift and eyebrow lifting operations.

lines around the mouth. The lower eyelid should be evaluated by your physician
and checked for bagging and sagging. The form of treatment should be evaluated.
If surgery is required, the specialist physician should initiate the planning
and process. In lower eyelid aesthetics, the surgical incision is made just
below the eyelashes. The skin is lifted and the fat packets are removed. If the
under-eye sunkenness continues after the surgery, an under-eye fat injection
may be required after recovery.
How long does it take for Eyelid Aesthetics (Blepharoplasty)
surgery and post-operative recovery?
After Eyelid Aesthetic Surgery, patients do not have serious
pain. Movement is allowed, provided that it is nourished and not heavy. The
patient, who is discharged on the same day, is evaluated again the next day and
5 days later. Stitches are often dissolving stitches. However, when necessary,
the stitches are removed painlessly without waiting for them to dissolve. After
the 5th day, it is allowed to shower and return to normal life. In order to
reduce scars in Eyelid Aesthetics, scar reducing creams are sometimes
recommended to patients.
