How a rhinoplasty can help a deviated septum?

How a Rhinoplasty Can Help a Deviated Septum?


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.

Skin thickness for rhinoplasty

Skin Thickness for Rhinoplasty


This week we will give you all the information and details about skin thickness for rhinoplasty. During rhinoplasty, the type of skin plays a huge and an important role and can affect the shape of your nose. Skin is the largest part of our body and each person’s skin thickness and structure is different and unique to the person.

The skin thickness on the nose is mainly divided into two parts;

  • Thick skinned noses
  • Thin skinned noses

Thick skinned nose

Patients with thick skin are more likely to own a thick and oily nose. Usually, this type of skin is genetic. The skin on the nose is more noticeable. The healing process after rhinoplasty takes more time. The thick skin seems like a thick blanket, this thick skin covers the shape of the nose. The patients with thick skin also have a rhinoplasty, but the process needs more control and may need to apply extra treatments before rhinoplasty and after rhinoplasty. The aim is to make the skin thinner. With extra treatments, a much more positive and satisfying result can be achieved after rhinoplasty by the right surgeon.

Thin skinned noses

Thin skinned nose, as its name implies, is a very thin structure covering the nose. Patients, who are thinking to have a rhinoplasty, should be well analyzed about skin thickness. Patients with a thin skinned nose have more advantages compared to patients with thick skin. Because they tend to recover faster than those with thick skins. Having a thin skinned nose is one of the desired condition to have a rhinoplasty. Nasal lines and shape will be more visible on the thin skinned noses with the help of all the fine workmanship. The disadvantage of being thin skinned is that it may show even minimal differences. The thin skin seems like a thin sheet on the bed.

Skin thickness is not a barrier for the patients who want to have a rhinoplasty. An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon can analyze and get a good sense of your skin type, thickness, and quality during the examination. And the surgeon can give you a very good idea about the healing process and an achievable result. Therefore, the process will be more positive since the patient and the surgeon knows the big picture.

Nasal splints in rhinoplasty

Nasal Splints in Rhinoplasty


Patients, who want to have a rhinoplasty, are most frightened and worried about the intranasal splints. But in this article, I will give you more information about intranasal splints that will show you the fear of splints is not necessary.

 

Why are the Splints Used?

One of the most common difficulties that people are facing is the breathing problem due to airway problems. Our main goal in rhinoplasty is to plan and operate the nose that best fits your face aesthetically. Besides, our aim is to obtain a functional nose after the surgery by intervening in the airways that have problems. After a rhinoplasty, a beautiful nose is obtained which fits your face and breathes easily. During the surgery, nasal splints are used in all patients suffering from airway problems. The function of the internal nasal splint, used in nose surgery, is to prevent postoperative deformities that may lead to adhesions, create pressure in the nose that will minimize the bleeding, and reduce swellings.

Also in the past, splints were used in nose surgeries. These splints were made of cloth and named nasal packs. After the operation, removing these nasal packs was a painful process. So this process brought a fear of nasal packs for the patients.

However, with the advancement of technology, new generation splints were created and no nasal packs (tampons) have been used for the last 9-10 years. The new generation splints are designed to fit nose internally. Since the new generation splints do not block airways, you can continue to breathe after the operation. There is no pain in removing the splints. The new generation of splints is destroying fears.

 

When are the Splints Removed?

Splints, used after airway intervention during rhinoplasty, are removed 1 week after the operation. It is not a painful process. With the new generation silicone splints used today, the postoperative process is more comfortable. There is no pain during the removal of the splints. The patients should save quality time to rest after the surgery.

I want to emphasize that patients do not need to fear from the splints removal day. With the help of new generation silicone splints, the postoperative process is very comfortable.

 

Nasal splints in rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty in the summer?

Rhinoplasty in the Summer?

This week’s article is based on the most frequently asked question lately about rhinoplasty: “Can I Have a Rhinoplasty in the Summer? Has the Sun effects after the Rhinoplasty?”. We evaluated this situation and wrote the effect of the sun after the rhinoplasty surgery for you. We hope you enjoy the article.

Anyone who wants to have nose surgery knows that this process needs to be done with care. There are many factors that affect the process, either positively or negatively. One of these factors is the sun. The sun can also have a positive effect depending on the technique of the operation. There is also a negative effect depending on the operation technique.

There is no incision on the tip of the nose with the Closed Technique in Rhinoplasty. Since there is no incision on the skin, there is no scar. Therefore, the sun does not have any effect to refine any scar. Generally, the most important reason for not performing in the Summer is the nose jobs made with the open technique. Since there is an incision on the nose, during the healing process the Sun will have an effect on the scar and will refine it. To prevent this situation, it is not recommended to perform surgery with the open technique in the summer.

 

In the process of Rhinoplasty, seasonality may have effect;

 

Rhinoplasty during the Winter

Winter season is a highly preferred season for rhinoplasty surgeries. Especially, it is a favorite period of doctors who make rhinoplasty surgeries with the open technique. The thing patients need to be careful is not to get cold during this period. In this period, infectious diseases rates are increasing. In the pre- and post-operation period, patients should be careful to not get cold.

 

Rhinoplasty during the Summer

Summer is the season that causes question marks in the heads of those who want to have nose surgeries. Because of the effect of the sun in this season. As mentioned above, doctors who do nose surgeries with open technique do not prefer to operate in summer. Doctors who perform nose surgeries with closed technique, they prefer to do operations in all seasons. Since there is no incision, there is no scar and the sun has no effect to refine it. There may be the risk of postoperative hemorrhage because of heat during the summer. However, with the improvements of the technology, the risk of bleeding can be eliminated.

 

In summary;

Anyone who wants to have nose surgery should first apply to a reliable nose aesthetic doctor. It is the healthiest way to go on a mutual trust basis with doctors. The operation time may vary in line with the deformities of the patient has. In this direction, it is necessary to determine the most appropriate time with the doctor. Another important thing is saving 7 days for a quality resting time after the operation by the patients, regardless of the season. In this way, the healing process will go faster.

Is there scarring after a rhinoplasty (nose job)?

Is There Scarring After a Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)?


The most common question, from the patients who want to have a rhinoplasty, is if there will be any scar after rhinoplasty. Nose jobs can be done with many different methods and techniques. Basically;

  1. Rhinoplasty with Open Technique
  2. Rhinoplasty with Closed Technique

 

Rhinoplasty with Open Technique

With open technique, a bridging incision was created and the nasal skin is folded upward to execute the operation. After the operation, there will be a scar on the tip of the nose due to this cut. There are some interventions due to minimize the scar;

  • Use medicines regularly given by your doctor after the operation
  • Protect your nose skin from the sun

Despite all these precautions, unfortunately a treatment that completely prevents the scar is not available.

Rhinoplasty with Closed Technique

With closed technique, there is no incision on the nose or on the pitanguy ligament. All surgical incisions are positioned inside the nostrils with no external scar. Since there is no incision on the nose, the healing process is much faster than the open technique. All tissues, nerves, and veins are preserved with the closed technique. So, the nose continues to be fed from the protected tissues after the surgery and this makes the patient have more comfortable time. There are no stitches, because there is no external incision, and there is no mark because there is no stitch. You can think “How this is possible?” With the experience and expertise of the surgeon, you can have the most natural, most compatible and no scarring rhinoplasty process.

In Which Season a Rhinoplasty or Nose Job Can Be Performed?

The used technique in a rhinoplasty or nose job is an important influencer.

In the open technique, the incision, made on the nose, creates a permanent scar because of the sun. Many surgeons who prefer open technique do not prefer to perform a rhinoplasty during the summer.

In the closed technique, there is no scar because there is no external incision. So, the sun cannot cause a problem after the surgery. With closed technique, the operation can be performed in summer or winter.

When is the Most Optimum Time for a Rhinoplasty?

The most optimum time is when the patient can save a quality time to rest after the operation. During this quality time, the patient will focus on the healing process and complete this process faster.

Best plastic surgeon

Best Plastic Surgeon

Best Plastic Surgeon

 

“Plastic” word comes from the Latin “Plastica” word and means shaping. So Plastic Surgery is about shaping surgery and Plastic Surgeon is the certified person who does this job. Another element of our field is Reconstructive. Aesthetic addresses the perception and the work to get excellence as a result of shaping and reconstructing. So; There is Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon. People who we call plastic surgeon or aesthetic surgeon are entitled to receive this long title after they have been studying for many years and have successfully passed many exams. To receive this title; six years of medical training and five years specialization in plastic surgery should be completed with a top performance in Turkey. It is very competitive and difficult to get this title in Turkey as it is in the World. Because each year maximum 30-32 staff position is available for plastic surgeons in Turkey. This number is very limited and there is high demand for this title. As an example, from other specialties, 800-900 staff position for general surgeons, 700-800 staff position for ear, nose & throat (ENT) surgeons are available each year. This shows how special and unique the plastic surgeon should be. After five years of specialization in plastic surgery, a thesis will be written, an exam will be passed and the two-year compulsory national service will be completed. By the end of all these, you can now become a plastic surgeon who has a diploma. But you are not done yet. To work as a plastic surgeon, you must pass professional qualification examinations. Turkish Plastic Surgery Society and European Board examination must be passed to be accepted by these societies and for the memberships. Being the best doctor, the best surgeon and even the best plastic surgeon are much more difficult and needs the best effort when it is so hard to be a plastic surgeon. If you have accepted this challenge and decided to pursue this career, what do you need to do to become the best plastic surgeon?

 

Qualifications Plastic Surgeons Need to Have

The information was written by me to guide and lighten my valuable young colleagues who dream of becoming a plastic surgeon and have difficulty in deciding a specialty. Firstly, you must be very good at English, if you are having a problem with it, work on it during your assistant years. Secondly, you should be interested in art, art inspires us, inspiration becomes aesthetic, and it ends up at your patients’ smile and happiness. Thirdly, you must be involved in scientific studies, know how to write a publication, and scan the literature to put the information in your memory. Fourth, you must improve your manual skill, your hands should have a high level of orientation and coordination. You will have to give up your many hobbies like playing guitar for this. Because the tips of your fingers should feel very good and measure even the smallest pressure. Instruments, such as guitars, form calluses at the fingertips and lead loss of sensation. The fifth you must be patient, decisive, always focused on learning, always doing the best, innovative and open to innovations. My young colleagues always write that they want to visit my clinic and get inspiration from me, which makes me very happy and they can make a start with this article. After this article, my colleagues are welcomed who are not afraid and want more. Finally, do not just go after your dreams, follow the things you cannot even imagine…

After rhinoplasty

After Rhinoplasty


In this article, we have discussed what patients should do after rhinoplasty and how they can handle this process easier. We can examine this process in two headlines; Cast Removal Day and After Removing the Cast.

The patient who had rhinoplasty is free to go her/his home after staying one night at the hospital and is invited to our clinic after 7 – 10 days from the operation to have cast and splint removal.

Cast Removal Day

This is the process that patients are most afraid of. In fact, these fears are very unnecessary. With the help of new generation silicon splints which are very elastic and are designed in line with the nose structure, removing splints is very painless.

The thermoplastic splint on the nose is removed without any pain with the help of its adhesive structure.

The patient’s blood pressure may drop due to excitement that occurs when the patient thinks about how she/he will look on the mirror. To prevent this condition, the patient should come to cast removal day with a full stomach. The patient may take a shower one day before or in the morning of the cast removal day that the cast will come out much easier.

After Removing the Cast

We do not need any bandages after removing the cast. However, some of our colleagues are using bandages. In this case, the patient must follow the instructions of the Doctor.

The patient, who is having cast removal, passes through the mirror after the adhesives on the nose are cleaned. This is the most exciting part. The patient, aware of their swelling, knows that most of the swelling will go away in 2 months. However, the patient who is unaware of the swelling and thinks that the result can be seen immediately, may fall into the void after seeing swelling on the face. Here the psychological dimension begins. After the nose surgery, the brain tends to find strange seeing the new face in front of the mirror. This is a normal process and can last up to 2-3 weeks. Patient relatives get used to this change process more quickly than the patient itself. This process is overcome with the support of our clinic psychologist and support of patients’ relatives.

The patient, who has cast and splint removal, should know that there will be some swelling on the nose and face. Depending on the skin’s quality, lubrication, acne or redness may appear on the surface of the skin. This can be eliminated in a short time using cleaning soap and lotion which are suitable for the skin type.

The delicate process that you need to be aware of after removing cast is 2 months. For a healthy healing, there should not be any strike or trauma at that period. Recommended massages should be done effectively and medicines should be used regularly. After 2 months, it is seen that most of the swelling is gone. However, it should not be forgotten that the result comes out after minimum 1 year.

It is important to attend 2 month and 1 year follow up appointments to have a healthy and complete rhinoplasty process. Let’s deep dive more “After Rhinoplasty” topic.

Things to Consider After Rhinoplasty

Now, we will be sharing with you how the after-rhinoplasty process progresses and what you need to pay attention to in this process. Recovery after rhinoplasty is a process that needs attention. We can start to explain how you should go through this process.

Recovery Process After Rhinoplasty

Recovery after rhinoplasty is a process that takes up to 1 year after surgery. This time may long up to 2 years. We can divide this process into 3 postoperative early, middle and late periods. The early period is the period that covers the first week after surgery. The middle period starts from the 7th day and lasts until the 2nd month. The late period also covers the period from the 2nd month to 1 year. Most of the recovery is completed from the 2nd month. However, this situation may vary from patient to patient.

What should be considered after rhinoplasty?

In this part of our article, we will explain step by step the processes you should pay attention to after surgery.

Things to Consider Immediately After Surgery

  • The first thing you should pay attention to after the surgery is your lying position. After the operation, you will lie with your head up. You should not try to lie down on your face. This position is important in order not to increase your swelling.
  • Ice should be applied until discharged.
  • Water should be drunk 6 hours after the operation. Soup and soft foods should be preferred.

 

Things to Consider After Discharge

  • At home, you should put a pillow / blanket behind your head and sleep in a sitting position for 1 week until your splint is removed.
  • You can take a shower, you can wash your hair by throwing it back as a hairdresser. Water should not come into contact with the face area.
  • Consuming green tea and parsley will help your edema go down quickly.
  • You should use your medication regularly.

 

Things to Consider After Removing Cast

  • The moisturizing function of the nose comes back 1 month after the operation. That’s why you should use medicine for 2 months after your splint and tampon are removed. The first is the “Nasal Spray” (6 times a day) and the other is “Pomade” (just before going to bed at night). I say nasal spray 6 times a day, but this is at least 6 times.
  • You should touch your nose softly. You can make up. You can clean it well in the shower. Your touches should be upwards.
  • Blowing, straining, coughing, bending-up, lifting or carrying a heavy load may increase your risk of bleeding. You should not do these movements unless they are told.
  • You should not wear glasses for 2 months. There is no harm in sunbathing, swimming or swimming. Don’t just jump into the water.
  • You should stay away from sports such as yoga, pilates and fitness for 8-10 weeks.
  • You should brush your teeth gently with a soft toothbrush.
  • Your controls are on the 2nd and 12th months. You should not miss your control days.

 

What to Eat After Nose Surgery?

  • You should consume soft foods after nose surgery.
  • You should stay away from extremely hot or cold foods.
  • While feeding after nasal surgery, you should not make excessive chewing movements for a certain period of time. However, you should not chew gum.
  • You should stay away from excessively salty foods.
  • After rhinoplasty, you should stay away from foods that cause gas for a certain period of time, and you should not consume soda.
  • Since it has a positive effect on the healing process of wounds, you should include foods containing protein and vitamin C in your diet after nose surgery.
  • As an individual, you should stay away from foods that you are allergic to.
  • You should not eat spicy foods for a certain period of time while feeding after rhinoplasty.

 

Is smoking allowed after rhinoplasty?

Smoking should definitely be quitted before rhinoplasty surgery. Smoking affects the recovery after nose surgery very badly and causes the healing to be disrupted. Therefore, smoking should be avoided before and after nasal surgery, and it should be avoided from smoking areas to prevent passive smoking.

 

Is it possible to do sports after rhinoplasty?

Sports are not allowed for 6 weeks after the operation. After the 6th week, small exercises such as walking can be done. For sports such as football and basketball that require close contact, patients are recommended to wear a mask or do it after they have recovered well. Activities such as swimming and gym can be started after the 8th week. However, this also varies depending on the patient and the details of the surgery performed.

When to massage after rhinoplasty?

Removing splints and tampons is not a painful process. The splint placed on the nose during the operation with the help of adhesives. While the splint is removed, the patient does not feel any pain.

Attention is paid to details such as lying position for the period recommended by the doctor. Generally, after the first 7-10 days, the person shows enough recovery to return to normal social life. However, after this process, even if the patient returns to her social life, the patient should continue to protect her nose in line with the doctor’s recommendations.

When will I see the final result?

You will not see the final shape of your nose just after the operation. Swelling and edema in the nose after rhinoplasty will be gone month by month. %80 of swelling will be gone 2 months and the remaining %20 of swelling will be gone in next 10 months. 2-3 months result will give an idea to the patients. But min after 1 year the patient will see the final result.

How much does rhinoplasty change the face?

As you know, the nose is located in the middle of the face. Therefore, the slightest change in the nose will have huge effect on the face. However, this change takes place in a positive way depending on the skills of your cosmetic plastic surgeon. Therefore, there is no need to be afraid about this.

Bleeding may occur in the first 24 hours after rhinoplasty surgery. What is important here is to understand whether the bleeding is an active bleeding or an outflow of old blood. If there is active bleeding, actions should be taken. The outflow of old blood can only be followed by dressing. Bleeding that occurs 24 after nose surgery should be evaluated more carefully. In case of bleeding after nose surgery, the patient is asked to contact the plastic surgeon. After rhinoplasty, it is beneficial to stay under observation in the hospital for the first 24 hours.

How long does the pain last after rhinoplasty?

We don’t observe any pain with Closed Atraumatic Rhinoplasty after rhinoplasty. Of course, if a patient is very sensitive to a pain, she may feel at minimum level. Your plastic surgeon may recommend pain killer medications. Therefore, there should be no fear about pain.

Are there scars after rhinoplasty?

The condition that there is no scar after rhinoplasty depends on the technique used in the surgery. With open technique, an incision is made at the tip of the nose. Therefore, it is likely that there will be scars on the nose after surgery. However, in the operations performed with closed technique, it is not possible to leave a scar on the nose. As a matter of fact, there is no incision on the tip of the nose in operations performed with the closed technique that we also use as the TAS Aesthetic Surgery Center. The surgery is performed through the nostrils, preventing the scars that may occur after the surgery.

How is the psychological situation after rhinoplasty?

If the patient prepared herself mentally enough before the operation and knew about what to expect about the operation process, she will continue with a good psychology after the operation. Some patients do not want to change or are afraid of change. This group of patients may not accept the shape change that occurs after surgery. It will be best for the patient to go forward if she is ready for the operation.

After the nose surgery, the swelling and bruises around the face and eyes will pass naturally. No additional intervention is needed for this. Due to have fast recovery, the patient must strictly follow the advice from her plastic surgeon. Swelling and bruises around the eyes disappear in a short time such as 3-4 days. However, patients need to be patient in order to eliminate the edema in the nose because the operation is performed inside the nose. In the operations performed with Closed Atraumatic Technique, swelling in the nose disappears maximum within 2 months after the operation. In a total of 1 year, the swelling in the nose completely will be gone and the nose regains its final appearance.

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty / piezo surgery / micromotor technology

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty / Piezo Surgery / Micromotor Technology


In this article, I will handle ultrasonic rhinoplasty, piezo surgery and micromotor terms which are recently popular in rhinoplasty procedures. A technique known as ultrasonic and piezo surgery are surgical instruments that cut or rasp nose bone with vibrations of sound waves only during the nose surgery instead of micromotor or osteotome.

Ultrasonic surgery, which is about 30 years old technology, was originally designed by dentists for use in dental reconstructive surgery. Since bleeding complications occur usually in dental surgery, this device cuts the bone slowly but it causes less bleeding by using the sound waves. So, this technique has been adopted by dentists and has become popular in a short time.

Later in 1992, ultrasonic technology has begun to be used in rhinoplasty by an Italian plastic surgeon and this idea quickly spread to many countries, helping all surgeons to experiment this technology. Where do the ultrasonic or piezo names come from? This instrument, based on the principle of sound waves, creates a vibration, which is then transmitted to a single point through an L-shaped tip and makes cut off the point. Based on this principle, it is called ultrasonic. But it is completely different from the ultrasound which is commonly known. Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique and Ultrasonic is a surgical instrument. Piezo is a word that created and patented by a business firm which is the producer of this instrument. So, generally those who use the instrument of this company use the piezo name, while those using the devices of other companies use ultrasonic rhinoplasty name.

The advantages of this technique are the possibility of cutting the bone in a smoother manner than the typical rasping and osteotome and may cause less bleeding while cutting the bone. Less bleeding will ensure less swelling and less bruising.

Micromotor technology is also a new technology and has been used in rhinoplasty for about 10 years. The motor technology, used to shape the bone almost 70 years in many areas such as facial/ body aesthetics and neurosurgery, was designed in microstructure to ensure surgery in small areas such as the nose. With micromotor technology, the nasal bone can be reshaped smoothly with a system based on electrical energy. With this to the point intervention, the possibility of edema and bleeding can be reduced and a much faster healing period can be created. We wish that all these technological improvements will be better and more every day.
