One of the common questions of those who want to have a rhinoplasty is the question of “Am I Having The Best Rhinoplasty?” This question will be answered during our post. Let’s start with listing criteria for The Best Rhinoplasty.
Criterias for The Best Rhinoplasty
When evaluating a Rhinoplasty procedure, different points are taken into consideration. In this context, we can list the criterias that helps us to understand the best Rhinoplasty:
1. Subjectivity in the Best Rhinoplasty
The concept of “beauty” varies from time to time and from culture to culture. Accordingly, the measure of beautiful nose aesthetics may differ from culture to culture. Therefore, when evaluating the criteria for the best Rhinoplasty, this should also be taken into consideration.
2. Angle between The Nose Tip and Upper Lip
Research suggests that the angle between the tip of the nose and the upper lip should be 110 degrees in women for an ideal Rhinoplasty. When the angle between the tip of the nose and the upper lip is less than 90 degrees, the nose structure usually looks more masculine. Therefore, one of the criteria of The Best Rhinoplasty is the angle between the tip of the nose and the upper lip.
3. Facial Features in Rhinoplasty
There are millions of face types worldwide. Accordingly, there are many nose shapes ideal for a beautiful nose image. Because every face is special, every nose is also special. Therefore, one of the important criteria in reaching the best Rhinoplasty is having a nasal structure that fits with the facial features.
4. The Best Rhinoplasty is the Most Natural One
One of the criteria of the best Rhinoplasty is its Natural look. If the Rhinoplasty performed is difficult to realize even by the relatives of the patients, it means that a natural Rhinoplasty surgery has been performed. A similar interpretation can be made if the Rhinoplasty Surgery is not realized by people who do not meet the patient before and if the nose image is defined as the state of beauty and happiness.
5. The Best Rhinoplasty Can Meet the Patient’s Expectations
One of the most important criteria of the best Rhinoplasty is that it can meet the expectations of the patient. The patient’s expectations should be set to be addressed, so Revision Rhinoplasty need can be eliminated. However, there is an important detail here. The Early image of the nose after Rhinoplasty Surgery is not the final image. Because the final shape of the nose appears one year after the operation on average. If the nose image, one year after the Rhinoplasty surgery, meets expectations; it means that the patient had the Best Rhinoplasty.
6.The Best Rhinoplasty Is Not Only Cosmetic; But Also Functional
When the Rhinoplasty is mentioned, the cosmetic appearance of the nose structure comes to mind first. However, there is also a functionality aspect of the nose structure. Functionality indicates that the inner structure of the nose is healthy, comfortable breathing through the nose and not snoring. If you have a problem with the functionality of your nose structure before the nose surgery and this situation can be eliminated after the operation which will indicate that the Best Rhinoplasty. In some cases, there is no problem with functionality before Rhinoplasty. However, incorrect interventions in nose surgery may cause problems in terms of functionality even if the desired nose image is achieved. Therefore, the best Rhinoplasty is related both to improving the appearance of the nose and to maintain or restore its functionality.
It is the end of the article prepared for the question “Am I Having The Best Rhinoplasty?”. Criterias for the Best Rhinoplasty are listed to simplify your life. You may contact us to get more information about Rhinoplasty. We wish you healthy days.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) is the most common operation among plastic surgery operations. So who is the best Rhinoplasty Surgeon ? Before we can answer this question, we have to ask the following questions :
1- How many Rhinoplasty surgeries does the surgeon perform annually ?
According to ISAPS data, more than 100,000 patients in the USA had rhinoplasty surgery last year. Rhinoplasty surgeons, performing this operation, are also quite a lot. There are 7.000 Rhinoplasty Surgeons in USA. Assuming all surgeons have an equal number of surgeries, this figure shows us there are 14.2 rhinoplasty surgeries are performed per surgeon in a year, which is actually a very low figure. While choosing your Rhinoplasty Surgeon who will perform your nose surgery, it is important to pay attention to the fact that Plastic Surgeon is specialized in this field, and the number of surgeries per year is at least 100 and shows that the Plastic Surgeon is experienced enough on this regard.
2- How many scientific publications does the surgeon have about Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) ?
The scientific aspect is also very important to be the best Rhinoplasy Surgeon. This not only demonstrates that it is following all technological developments, but also shows that there is a capacity and potential to add new developments to existing ones.
3- Does the surgeon receive invitations as a faculty about Rhinoplasty ?
It is necessary to attain a certain level knowledge in order to be a faculty during congress. This is important for patients to understand the surgeon’s experience and value about the subject.
4- Does the surgeon take an educational role about Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) ?
Teaching is also as important as performing Rhinoplasty Surgeries. It shows that the Rhinoplasty Surgeon has analyzed very well what he/she is doing and have deep knowledge about to tell all details to the other surgeons. This is one of the most important parameters that determine the best Rhinoplasty (Nose Jon) Surgeon.
5- Does the surgeon has a website/social media account where patients can get more info ?
Another important parameter is information about the surgery. In plastic and aesthetic surgeries, surgery information is extremely important for patients to understand the doctor’s approach. This allows patients to understand both the doctor’s domination and his/her aesthetic perception. This is an important parameter to determine the best Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Surgeon. Rhinoplasty surgery is the most difficult operation of plastic surgery. Very different result can be attained from a surgeon who performs this operation in a routine clinical practice and from a surgeon who performs it once a year. The nose effects the entire face appearance with its strategic place.
6- Is the Rhinoplasty Surgeon preferred by celebrities ?
Since celebrities are very visible and earn their lives in front of the camera, they are more obsessive about plastic and aesthetic surgeries. So if a celebrity prefers the Rhinoplasty Surgeon, it may be an important criteria for you. However, celebrities also hide that they have surgery. If the celebrity is not hiding of having a surgery, she/he may have collaborated with the doctor most of the time. Because celebrities do not want to be called aesthetically like every patient and want to know that their beauty is natural. So, Angelina Jolie from Hollywood, and Türkan Şoray from Yeşil Çam all had their operations quietly behind closed doors.
7- Is the Rhinoplasty Surgeon a member of professional associations and organizations ?
Being a member of associations related to the field of Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) is an indication that it is known and relevant in the field.

The nostrils and wings reduction aesthetics is among the frequently asked questions for those who have wide noses and would like to have a nose surgery. Thus, the main two reasons of a wide nose are broad wings and nostrils. On this week’s blog as TAS Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Clinic we would like to inform you about the reduction of the nostrils and wings of the nose. Hope it will be helpful for you and please enjoy reading it.
What makes a nose wide?
Before proceeding with the details related to the wide nose reduction surgery we would like to summarize the main reasons of wide wings and nostrils. Certainly the main reason is genetic. Deformity and excessive cartilage structures can be shown as examples. However in some cases even when the nose is not broad, it might seem wide which can be seen in the following examples:
1) Lack of Projection
When looking from the profile, if there is not enough projection on the tip, nasal structures might seem wide.
2) The tip of the nose is too much lifted
If the tip of the nose is too much lifted, the nostrils might seem wider, which causes an overall broadness of a nose.
3) Alar retraction
In some cases even if the nostrils and the wings are not wide, alar retraction might cause the opposite effect.
How are nostrils and wings reduction surgeries performed?
After summarizing the main reasons causing wide noses we can answer the questions related to the surgery for narrowing broad noses.
Generally reduction of the wings and nostrils is performed as a part of the rhinoplasty. However, for those who have only this complaint it can be performed as well. The most common treatment is the removal of limited tissues from the alar base and reshaping treatment. Airway flow shouldn’t be deteriorated. In some cases the wings can be made slimmer by just projecting or deprojecting the tip of the nose. Thus, we have already counted it among the reasons for wide noses.
Besides nostril reduction surgery, there are different techniques being used for the reduction of the broad noses. We use dissolvable stitches after surgical interventions for wide nose aesthetics performed by the Closed and Atraumatic Technique. Therefore there are no external scars after nostril reduction aesthetics procedure.
This is the end of this week’s blog prepared by the TAS Aesthetic Plastic Surgery about the nostrils and wings reduction. If you have any questions regarding these surgeries please contact us via +90 532 056 3693 phone number. We wish you healthy and joyful week.
The collapse of the nose is a kind of the nasal deformities. Also known as the saddle nose deformity it can be seen in many patients because of different reasons. On this week’s blog as TAS Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Clinic we would like to inform you about the nasal collapse. Throughout our blog we will be answering the frequently asked questions such as ‘What is the nasal collapse? Why does it happen? and How can it be addressed? Hope it will be helpful for you and please enjoy reading it.
What is the nasal collapse?
The nasal collapse is the pinched nose deformity formed by the space between the bridge and tip of the nose because of various reasons. If we handle it in details; as you know the nose is the most prominent thing on the humans face. Relevant prominency is provided by the nasal bones and cartilages functioning as a roof. Because of the various reasons between the bridge and the tip there may occur a dent that causes a pinched and collapsed nasal appearance. Coloquially known as the ‘Boxers nose’ nasal collapse is also known as the saddle nose deformity.
What causes the nasal collapse?
There are two main reasons causing nasal collapse. It can be either genetic or acquired. Acquired deformity has two main reasons such as severe external trauma and the other reason is the deformity acquired after failed interventions of the plastic surgeon during rhinoplasty surgery. For instance, it can be gained consequently overreduction of the nose ridge by an unexperienced plastic surgeon. To sum up; the main two reasons of the nasal collapse are traumatic cases and failed aesthetic surgeries.
How can the nasal collapse identified?
Here we will try to give tips about how the nasal collapse can be identified.
- Collapse of a nasal bridge
- Insuffiecient nose tip support
- Shortening of the projection
- Retrusion on the lowest part of the nasal septum
How can it be addressed?
Finally we would like to inform you about the treatment and surgery of the saddle nose deformity. There are various methods for addressing this deformity. The main goal is to rehabilitate the functionality of a nose thus, several grafts and materials are utilized in the surgery. Including rib, ear or the radiated cadaver cartilage, titanium or silicon based materials. Preferably to use the tissues taken from the patients body. The main reason is the prevention of the possible infections and tissue reactions that can take place after the surgery. Although it is a matter of various preferences for each surgeon. The graft that will be integrated to a nose is discussed with the patient. After that a nose surgery is performed. As with each surgery there will be post op recommendations that need to be followed. Your surgeon will inform you about them.

Nose surgery is one of the most common aesthetic surgeries that includes variations such as Post Traumatic and Crooked Nose surgeries. On this week’s blog Süleyman TAŞ Aesthetic Surgery Clinic will inform you about the Post Traumatic and Crooked Nose surgeries (Septorhinoplasty/Septoplasty).
What is Post-Traumatic and Crooked Nose Rhinoplasty?
Many people have complaints about the crookedness of their noses which could be either genetic or may be caused by various reasons like accidents. This deformity is called as a deviated septum. Septorhinoplasty is a combination of Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty surgeries. Rhinoplasty is performed for cosmetic or functional reasons to reshape the nose – while Septoplasty corrects a deviated septum to restore (or create) normal breathing function.
Post-Traumatic Rhinoplasty corrects the deformities caused by a trauma or an injury as well. If there is a fracture on a nose it has to be operated. These are the signs of the broken nose: obstruction, breathing difficulties, swelling and bruises.
How are Post-Traumatic and Crooked Nose Rhinoplasty surgeries performed?
In this part you may have an opinion about the guidelines of these surgeries. Here are the steps of the surgery:
- Plastic Surgeon evaluates the case. During the examination required controls and tests are done. Thus we can understand if the patient is ready for the surgery. The surgery plan is established.
- Following the definition of the surgery date, Plastic Surgeon provides recommendations for pre-operation procedures needs to be followed by the patient for a certain time.
- Depending on the nose proportions it is made either slimmer or wider than before. The desired shape of nose is determined during the examination according to the present deformities, genetical structure and patient’s expectations.
- Generally the patient stays overnight in the hospital for the futher observation.
- The patient is informed about the post op instructions that should be followed by the patient especially first week after discharging from the hospital. For example, the patient shouldn’t sleep on his side at least one week post op. The patient should regularly attend his follow ups by the Doctor. Swelling and bruises dissipate as time passes. On the other hand, forbidden actions will be allowed step by step. The final outcome can be achieved in one year post operation.
This is the end of the article in which we, as Süleyman TAŞ Aesthetic Surgery Clinic, tried to answer the frequently asked questions about the Post-Traumatic and Crooked Nose Rhinoplasty. We would like to remind you that if you have questions or would like to have an appointment, you can contact us via to +90 532 056 3693. Wish you all the best.
In this article, “How a Rhinoplasty Can Help a Deviated Septum?” subject will be handled which is one of the most seen problem in Rhinoplasty. First, let’s start by answering the following questions; What is a deviated septum? How a deviated Septum occurs? What are the physical and functional damages? and How a rhinoplasty can help a deviated septum?
What is a Deviated Septum?
Deviated nasal septum is a physical disorder of the nose. Having a off center or crooked bone and cartilage in the nose structure create deviated septum. Septum is a structure that divides the nasal cavity of the nose in half. Deviation refers to being off center or crooked.
How a Deviated Septum Occurs?
Main reasons of a deviated septum can be summarized under two headings. The first reason is our genetical features which hand down from generations. The second reason is hits or injuries that we have externally. Those hits or injuries you have cause a deviated septum. Especially in childhood, a fall, hit and injury cause a crooked nose and the nose completes its growing with deformities and those deformities bring a lot of problems later.
What are the Physical and Functional Damages of a Deviated Septum?
A deviated septum causes asymmetrical and not straight appearance. When looking at a person, subconsciously the first thing to see is the nose. Due to crooked and asymmetrical nose, other beautiful parts in your face do not attract attention.
Functionally, a deviated septum has much greater damage. The nose, with a deviated septum, can experience breathing problems. When proper and sufficient amount of oxygen was not provided, the immune system will not work properly and this will cause infections. Furthermore, a deviated septum may also cause sleep apnea, continuous fatigue, and a serious condition in which a person stops breathing during sleep. Deviation problems may cause respiratory and lung problems in older ages.
How a Rhinoplasty Can Help a Deviated Septum?
Closed and Atraumatic Technique can be performed for a deviated septum as for all rhinoplasty operations. With closed and atraumatic technique, there is no incision and scar after rhinoplasty. This technique has more advantageous when compared to other techniques in terms of healing process. Along with the aesthetic surgery performed to touch the external appearance of the nose, interventions can be made for a deviated septum. In this way, it is possible to have a beautiful appearance and a functional breathing nose.
The subject of this week’s article is rhinoplasty cost and we are going to handle the factors that determine rhinoplasty prices. As you know, the type of rhinoplasty and the location that you have rhinoplasty may change the prices. Patients, who are planning to have rhinoplasty, wonder about the factors that change the prices.

Moreover, many operations are performed about the nose structure from the tip of the nose to the bridge of the nose. The cost of rhinoplasty can differ from each other.
What Sets the Cost for Rhinoplasty?
- First of all, the cost varies according to the type of rhinoplasty.

A plastic surgeon who has proven himself in his field guarantees for a better nose look and functions, which may increase the cost of the service.
- Depending on the type of rhinoplasty and the used technique, length of hospital stay and materials to be used may vary. Therefore, how many days you need to stay in the hospital and which tools the plastic surgeon need to use are going to set the cost of rhinoplasty.
- The country and city where the rhinoplasty will be performed is another factor that sets the cost for rhinoplasty. In Turkey, patients can get better service at a more affordable price. If you double click it; the hospital, that will be used for the operation, is also important element that sets the cost. Our aim is to select the best hospitals to entrust our patients.
- The scope of additional services planned before and after rhinoplasty is another factor affecting the cost for rhinoplasty. There should be a planning phase before rhinoplasty and control phase after rhinoplasty.
- During the examinations, different paths may be determined to attain the best results that will lead the road map and set the cost for rhinoplasty.
- The anesthesia process prior to rhinoplasty is another factor affecting the price.
In this way, the factors affecting the cost of rhinoplasty can be summarized. However, among the items listed above, the answer to the question of which item has the highest effect factor is clear: The success of the plastic surgeon in the field and the references. Finally, patients need to have an appointment and an examination to learn the exact and final price. As a matter of fact, the exact road map for the rhinoplasty is determined by these examinations.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is actually a nasal filling practise which can be performed by injecting Hyaluronic acid or fat from the patient’s body. The aim of non-surgical rhinoplasty is to touch the small deformities for a specific time period that do not require a surgical intervention. As non-surgical rhinoplasty is practised with hyaluronic acid or fat injection, so the nose can be enlarged but can not be shrinked.
Is Anaesthesia Required for Non-surgical Rhinoplasty?
Anaesthesia is not required for any type of non-surgical rhinoplasty. Before the procedure local anesthetical creams are applied and numbness of the area is provided. The procedure takes 15 minutes without pain and suffering in the clinical enviroment. After the procedure patients can continue their social life.
