Massage after rhinoplasty

Massage After Rhinoplasty

As TAS Aesthetic Surgery Center, we discuss the topic of massage after rhinoplasty in the blog post we prepared this week. Nose massage, which is one of the care recommendations that people who have had rhinoplasty should do after the surgery, is of great importance. After removing the cast on the nose and the tampons in the nose, massage should be performed in accordance with the recommendation of your doctor.

How Massage Should Be Performed After Rhinoplasty?

The nose skin can be gently cleaned with a mild soap or skin care lotions with vaseline. Care must be taken during this cleaning. Massage should be done on the nose for 20 minutes a day regularly and effectively for 2 months. The importance of the massage is that it activates the facial lymphatics through circulation. In this way, the lymphatic flow in the nose is accelerated and the swelling – edema formation on the nose is minimized. These swellings – edemas which are minimized positively affects the healing process. However, the patient should not apply any massage he sees on the internet. Since the procedure for each patient is different, massage can also be personalized. It should be done with the advice of your doctor and the doctor’s recommendations should be taken into account. There are many care suggestions apart from the massage that should be done after the rhinoplasty. We can list these maintenance recommendations item by item as follows;

Massage after rhinoplastyCare Recommendations After Rhinoplasty

  • The patient who had rhinoplasty surgery should lie at home with his head elevated for 1 week after discharge, as it will reduce the swellings.
  • Lying on your side and lying face down is prohibited.
  • Blowing your nose, straining, coughing, bending over – getting up, lifting a heavy load – carrying should not be done as they will increase the risk of bleeding.
  • Foods that require effort to chew, also the ones which require long and hard chewing should be avoided.
  • Salt restriction should be made as it will shorten the dissipation process of swellings from the body.
  • Protein-rich foods should be consumed.
  • You should rest more than usual and activities that require you to exert effort, such as sexual intercourse, should be avoided for 2 weeks.
  • Excessive and long speeches and excessive facial movements such as laughing should be avoided for 2 weeks.
  • Clothes that are buttoned from the front or back should be worn for 2 weeks. Avoid tight-fitting T-shirts and stand-up collar clothes that are worn over the head.
  • Sports such as yoga, pilates and fitness should be avoided for 8-10 weeks.
  • It is forbidden to use prescription glasses or sunglasses that fit the nose for at least 8 weeks.
  • Contact lenses can be used 2-3 days after the operation.
  • Make-up can be worn after cast and tampons are removed.
  • We have come to the end of the blog post we created for your questions about massage after rhinoplasty surgery.

Smoking and alcohol consumption after rhinoplasty

Smoking and Alcohol Consumption After Rhinoplasty

Among the issues that people who want to have rhinoplasty, they often wonder about are smoking and alcohol consumption after rhinoplasty.

Why You Shouldn’t Smoke and Drink Alcohol After Rhinoplasty?

As after every surgery, there are issues that patients should pay attention to after rhinoplasty. One of them is not to smoke or drink alcohol after rhinoplasty surgery. One of them is not to smoke or drink alcohol after rhinoplasty. This is for making recovery process the healthiest and the fastest way for the person who had rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty are performed in two ways. In rhinoplasty which is performed by open technique, an incision is made on the outside of the nose. In rhinoplasty which is performed with the closed technique, for not leaving any slightest scar on the nose, incisions are not performed from outside the nose, they are performed through the nose. In other words, there is an incision procedure for rhinoplasty in any case. Smoking and alcohol consumption delay the healing process of swelling, bruises and edema in rhinoplasty which was performed with incisions. Consequently, the time of getting the final shape of the nose will be extended.

The Harms of Smoking After Nose Surgery

As is known, a tampon is placed inside the nose after rhinoplasty. Smoking after rhinoplasty puts pressure on the nose through smoke at this point. This can cause health problems such as cracking and tearing of capillaries. Also any other similar problems like these; are among the possibilities for smokers after rhinoplasty. Consequently, you should not be exposed to cigarette smoke either actively or passively after rhinoplasty. When it comes to alcohol consumption, there is also a similar prohibition for it after rhinoplasty. Some of the main reasons for this are; Alcohol consumption causes vasodilation, water retention in the body and dryness of the skin. This both makes the immune system weak and delayes recovery of edema.

How Long You Should Avoid Smoking and Alcohol Consumption After Rhinoplasty Surgery?

In the previous part of our article, we explained in detail the reasons why smoking and alcohol should not be consumed after rhinoplasty. Now; We can answer the question, “How long smoking and alcohol consumption should be avoided after rhinoplasty?” After rhinoplasty, the patient should not smoke at all. Similarly; During this period, the patient should not be exposed to passive smoking too in any way. The patient should completely remove smoking from his life. ”How many days after rhinoplasty can alcohol be consumed?” When it comes to the answer to the question, the time is a little more limited at this point. You should not consume alcohol for 2 weeks after the surgery. After that, you can start consuming alcohol slowly without going overboard. With all these, the times we give are the general average. Your aesthetic doctor will inform you about the final decision about this. We have come to the end of our blog post about smoking and alcohol use after rhinoplasty. We hope our article was useful for you. We would like to remind you that you can contact TAS Aesthetic Surgery Center via +90 532 056 3693 if you have any questions about smoking and alcohol consumption after rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty in general; We wish you healthy days.

How should a natural nose be?

How Should a Natural Nose Be?

How Should a Natural Nose Be?

Every person has a different nose structure. Some people are not satisfied with the very diverse nose structure. The nose is the first organ of the upper respiratory system. Apart from its first function which allows us to breathe properly the nose is located in the middle of our facial structure. Nose surgery is required for the treatment of problems in the nose that cause breathing problems and affect the general quality of life of the person. One of the issues that people who want to have nose surgery most afraid of is whether their nose will have a natural appearance after nose surgery. If you are reading this article, you must be asking yourself this question “I Want a Natural Nose. Is It Apparent That I Have Aesthetics?” TAŞ Aesthetic Surgery Center prepared a blog post for those who want to have rhinoplasty and ask the question “How is a natural rhinoplasty done?”. In our blog post today we will share with you the answers to your questions such as How should the ideal nose structure be? How to achieve a natural nose structure with rhinoplasty?.

What is the Ideal Nose?

The ideal nose is a concept that is suitable for each individual’s face type and varies from individual to individual, and cannot be generalized. In order to achieve the ideal nose, criteria such as symmetry, proportion, harmony, naturalness and function must be met. Thus, the ideal, that is, natural nose surgery conditions for the person are achieved.

What Should Be the Natural Nose Size and Shape?

It should be taken care of to ensure that the nose structure is proportional to the other features of the face. The secret of a good nose is the structure of the nose, which is not known to have been operated on aesthetically, but is compatible with the facial features and dimensions. For this, the nose structure that makes up the nose, such as the tip of the nose, the bridge of the nose, the wings of the nose and the nostrils, must be proportional and in harmony with each other. In the ideal nose size, points such as the person’s unique face shape and angle of the tip are decisive. The golden ratio is very important in rhinoplasty, which is the most striking part of the face. At this point, rhinoplasty operations should be planned according to the golden ratio. As in all aesthetic operations, the most important point in rhinoplasty is to produce an ideal and natural-looking result for the patient.

Customized Nose Features

  1. Gender

Women have a more sensitive nose structure than men. It is generally smaller, narrower and less projective. The nasal dorsal is more concave, while in the male it is flat and a little convex.

  1. Ethnicity

How should a natural nose be?

Ethnic term; refers to a group of people who share a common racial, cultural, national, religious or linguistic heritage. Ethnic Rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is a natural rhinoplasty with features depending on the race (European, African, Middle Eastern, Latin American, Asian and Hispanic) people belong to. There is a different nose structure for each ethnicity and nose surgery is performed according to this nose structure.

  1. Big and Long Nose

How should a natural nose be?

We can say that the big and long nose type is the most common nose type in people. The fact that the nose is larger than the facial features of the person affects the person and forces him to have rhinoplasty. The important thing here is again the choice of the surgeon. In individuals with a large and long nose, the nasal skeleton becomes smaller while the nose surgery is performed, but the amount of skin remains the same. The skin adapts to the underlying skeleton and is attempted to be reduced in size as much as the tissues allow that to do, depending on the quality of the skin. For thick skinned patients they need to prepare their skin before surgery with fractional resurfacing CO2 laser treatment to help the skin to shrink during the surgery. It takes 1-2 years for the nose shape to fully settle. Rhinoplasty results in a 20-25% reduction. More than that is simply not possible. The reason for this is that we cannot reduce the skin structure on the nose while reducing the bone and cartilage structure of the nose. This is due to the fact that the skin is too large for the structure of the newly formed nose.

  1. Humpy Nose

How should a natural nose be?

During the development period, a hump may occur in your nose structure. With the development and completion of the bone structure during adolescence, the humpy nose structure in the genes begins to become evident. In addition to the gene structure, a humpy nose structure may occur as a result of blows, bumps, and falls during childhood.

What Should the Natural Nose Size Be According to Nose Angles?

Nasofrontal Angle: The nasofrontal angle shows how the nasal bone articulates with the glabella and brow. Ideally, the nose should have a small indentation at the point where the nose meets the glabella (the area between the two brow ridges of the forehead) and the eyebrow.

 

Nasal Angle: The nasal angle gives us information about how the nose tip structure fits with the rest of the nose. It is absolutely essential to evaluate this angle in patients who want to change the appearance of the nasal tips. Poorly protruding nose tips produce an undesirable facial aesthetic.

 

Nose-Jaw Angle: After evaluating the nasal angle, the chin itself is evaluated for the ideal nose. The chin is evaluated directly as the mentoservical angle. This angle directly evaluates the chin protrusion as it relates to the lip protrusion and nasal protrusion. For ideal facial aesthetics, this angle should be between 80-95 degrees.

What Should the Natural Nose Size Be According to the Face Ratio?

Face shape differs from person to person. The nose structure varies greatly according to the features of the person. The important thing in the facial area, which consists of the upper, middle and lower face parts, is to find the underlying facial skeleton. To assess facial or nasal symmetries or asymmetries, the face should be divided into five equal parts and evaluated. Your face should be divided into three vertically by taking the hairline, the tip of the nose, the upper part of the nose and the chin area. Here, in general, the horizontal axis of the nose should be equal to the horizontal axis of the eye. The upper third is the most variable, and the lower third of the face is then divided into thirds by visualizing a horizontal line between the oral commissure (stomion). The upper third of this lower part is located between the nasal base and the oral commissure, and the lower two thirds are between the commissure (stomion) and the menton. The nose length should be equivalent to the stomionto-menton distance (SM). The lower lip should be within 2 mm of this line. The ideal chin position varies by gender, with the chin slightly behind the lower lip in women and equal to the lower lip in men. In order to reveal the ideal nose structure, the person’s features and nose structure are examined and the new nose shape must be compatible with all these features in order to catch the golden ratio. Conditions for attaining the golden ratio:

  • When adapting the golden ratio to rhinoplasty, it should be taken care to ensure that the nose length is equal to 1/3 of the face height,
  • The ratio between the width of the nose and the width of the mouth should be compatible.
  • The ratio between the length of the nose and its projection and the ratio of the sides of the face rectangle to each other should be considered.
  • The ratio of the space between the eyebrows to the space between the pupils
  • The ratio of the widths to the lengths of the front two teeth in the upper jaw,
  • The ratio of the width of the lower lip to the width of the upper lip

Before deciding on nose surgery, shape deformities in the nose are also decisive points to achieve the natural nose structure.

How to Correct Nose Shape Deformities?

  1. Septum Deviation

Septum deviation is the curvature of the bone in the nose. Septorhinoplasty surgery is performed to get rid of the bone curvature of the nose due to various reasons.

  1. Droopy Tip

In the ideal nose structure, there should be a 90 degree angle for males and 110 degree angle for females between the tip of the nose and the upper lip. When the tip of the nose falls, this angle becomes smaller and appears to be stuck to the lip. Especially when viewed from the side, this droopiness at the tip of the nose is easily evident. If you have a droopy nasal tip problem, you should have a nose tip surgery.

Bunların yanında burun şekil bozukluğu semptomları arasında nefes almada yaşanan problemler ve horlama, burunda zamanla meydana gelen kemer ve burun deliklerinde orantısızlık yer almaktadır. In addition to these, nasal deformity symptoms include breathing problems and snoring, and disproportion in the nostrils and hump that occur over time in the nose.

Things to Consider in Nose Surgery for Reaching a Natural Nose

I Want a Natural Nose. Is It Apparent That I Have Had Aesthetic surgery? The answer to these questions is completely hidden in the aesthetic operation. We have stated that the concept of natural rhinoplasty will vary from person to person due to both the person’s tastes and the physical features of the face. However, natural nose surgery is possible for every person. For natural rhinoplasty, you should first choose a plastic surgeon who has proven his success in his field and whom you can trust. After you make the right choice, the things to be done in the way of natural rhinoplasty are shaped by your plastic surgeon according to your wishes. There are four parts of the nose that your plastic surgeon should consider for natural nose surgery. These sections are;

 

Upper part of the nose: The upper part of the nose consists of the nasal bones. If there is a deformation in the upper part of your nose and your surgeon wants to make changes at this point, equalizing the nasal bone height and the angle between the upper part of the nose and the forehead will reveal a nose structure that most patients desire. Shrinking the bone too much can cause indentation and will make it look both unnatural and the lower nose too big. This can also limit airflow, so the goal should be straightening and narrowing without overdoing it.

 

The middle part of the nose: There is a septum consisting of a rectangular cartilage in the middle part of the nose that separates the left and right nostrils of the nasal bones and extends quite deep into the nasal cavity. On either side of the septum is a small curve of cartilage called the upper lateral cartilage that helps keep the nasal airway open. In this area, most patients want the nose to appear straight when viewed from the front, not too wide or narrow. When viewed from the side, it is desired that this middle part of the nose be at equal height to the nasal bones. During surgery to reduce a lump or curvature in this area, the surgeon should avoid removing too much cartilage in this area. Overdoing it can interfere with breathing. Your surgeon will delicately treat this area to make it as flat as possible. Sometimes the mid nose needs to be supported with special cartilage grafts called spreader grafts that keep the airway open and help straighten the nose.

 

Nasal tip: The shape of the nose tip and rim consists of two curved C-shaped cartilages. Much of the aesthetics and beauty of the nose depends on the size, shape and projection of the tip. You and your surgeon can make choices about tip changes. The aim is to project the tip at the same level and from the side view equal to, and perhaps slightly beyond, the height of the profile line. If the tip is drooping or less protruding outward, it may appear curved. If too much is removed from the tip, it can sometimes point too high. This is where the experience of your rhinoplasty surgeon is important. Some of the common changes are:

  • Increased projection with sutures or cartilage grafts
  • Reducing an over-projected tip
  • Narrowing a wide or boxy tip
  • To make an irregular tip more symmetrical and even

 

Nose Skin: Nose skin differs from person to person. In rhinoplasty surgery, the fact that the skin of the nose is thin or thick, as well as being dry and oily, affects the nose surgery. At this point, the structure of the nose skin is also very important for the emergence of the ideal nose structure. If we go into more details about what should be considered for natural nose surgery:

  • The nose is an organ located in the middle of the face. When the face is considered as 3 equal parts, provided that it includes the inner canthus and lip line, the nose that is compatible and proportional with the resulting parts will be the ideal nose.
  • The fact that the nostrils are parallel to the midline of the eyes helps to achieve the ideal nose proportion.
  • It is very important to achieve the golden ratio in rhinoplasty for natural rhinoplasty. As a matter of fact, the sculptors of the Renaissance period used the golden ratio formula while creating their sculptures. At the point we have reached today, the golden ratio has gained importance in rhinoplasty.
  • When the nose is evaluated alone, it should have harmonious proportions within itself. In addition, it should be shaped in a way that is compatible with everyone’s unique facial features.
  • When we look at a person’s face, the nose comes to the forefront. Therefore, one of the conditions that must be met for a natural rhinoplasty is to adjust the front view of the nose correctly and proportionally.
  • In natural nose surgery, when the post-operative swelling is gone and the shape of the nose is settled, the person will never find his own nose strange. People with thick-skinned noses may take a little longer to recover than thin-skinned noses.

Closed and Atraumatic Technique for Natural Nose Surgery

Assoc.Prof.Dr. Suleyman TAS uses Closed and Atraumatic Technique, which has a faster recovery process compared to open technique nose surgery. The main advantages of the Closed and Atraumatic technique are as follows:

  • In nose surgeries performed with Closed and Atraumatic Techniques, there is no scar because the tip of the nose is not cut.
  • Since the pitanguy ligament located behind the nasal tip skin is not cut, there is no dropping in the tip of the nose.
  • After the nose surgery performed with the Closed and Atraumatic Technique, the mobility and softness of the nasal tip is preserved.
  • When nose surgery is performed with this technique, since the number of cut nerves is less, the numbness in the nose after the surgery is less.
  • Thanks to Closed Technique nose surgeries, the tip of the nose is better supported.
  • Swelling that may occur after nose surgery is minimized by this technique.

Natural Rhinoplasty Before and After Difference

Perhaps the biggest indicator of natural rhinoplasty is the comments of people you meet after rhinoplasty. Imagine meeting a new person after rhinoplasty and complimenting your nose. If this person does not ask if your nose has been operated on, you may think that the necessary procedures for natural rhinoplasty have been done. However, it is worth remembering that it takes a certain time for the structure of your nose to settle, since the swelling of the nose passes after an average of two months after the splint is removed. If you want to achieve the ideal nose structure for your face, it should not be forgotten that you should choose the right surgeon, which is important here. We have come to the end of our blog post, where we tell you how to get a natural nose structure with rhinoplasty and answered the question How should the ideal nose be? We would like to remind you that you can review our rhinoplasty page for more detailed information, and contact us for your questions on +90 543 456 36 93. Have a healthy day.

Deviated septum (crookedness of the nasal bone)

Deviated Septum (Crookedness of The Nasal Bone)

Deviated Septum (Crookedness of The Nasal Bone)

Septum deviation is the crookedness of the nasal bone as called colloquially. Deviated septum causes numerous issues therefore it effects the life quality of people. We will talk about septum deviation in our blog post today and will try to answer all of your questions.

What is Deviated Septum?

Septum deviasyonu (burun kemiği eğriliği)

A nose is the starting point of the respiratory tract and ensures a healthy breathing, which is one of the most vital functions of the body system.

The nose is a tunnel divided in the middle by a wall. The nasal septum is the part that divides the nasal cavity into two parts. The medical name of this wall is “septum nasale”. The area we call the septum in the nose is a structure consisting of cartilage and bone, located in the middle of the nostrils that divides the nose into two air passages and extending to the nasal cavity. In the nose with deviation, this structure is not where it should be. Its midline may be more or less tilted to the side. It is considered to be healthy when the inner width, length and volume of each tunnel are close to each other. In an ideal and healthy nose structure, two separate air passages are in a structure that expands towards the back. This expanding section ensures that the incoming air is warmed, humidified and sent to the olfactory area. In addition, particles, which entered with air and larger than 5 microns are retained and filtered by the mucoid secretions on the nasal mucosa. Thus, the air transferred to the lungs is of a certain quality and clean. The health of our respiratory tract and lungs is related to the quality of the air taken. An individual with septum deviation does not have this nose structure. He has a curvature on his nose. The curvature of the nose, which causes problems while inhaling and exhaling, basically prevents air flow.

What are The Reasons Causing Septal Deviation?

Deviation may occur due to hereditary features or due to asymmetrical face shapes. In addition, deviations may occur as a result of blows to the nose from the outside in the later stages of life, which can usually be in childhood or adolescence. Nose development is a known process that continues until the age of 18. Blows to the nose during childhood can cause shifts of 1 millimeter. If these shifts are not taken into account, the shifts continue to grow as the nose structure develops.

In 80% of people, the septum is not located in the middle. This does not cause excessive discomfort. The fact that the septum is located much further from the middle side causes various health problems. The disease is defined as a pronounced crookedness of the septum partially or completely, being shifted from the midline and affecting respiration. Air passage is often reduced on the curved side. The curvature is sometimes S or C-shaped and can block both sides of the nose. The greater the deviation, the greater the nasal congestion. When one side is obstructed, patients usually do not feel discomfort in this way, as they can breathe from the other side.

What Problems Cause Deviation?

Since deviation affects a vital condition such as breathing, it can cause many problems. We can list the problems caused by nasal cartilage curvature as follows;

  • With nasal congestion, the person breathes through the mouth. Therefore, the air is not heated and humidified as in the nose, and the quality of the air going to the lungs decreases. This causes problems in the lungs and respiratory tract.
  • Due to poor quality air, organs such as the throat, larynx and lungs strive to improve the quality of the air. This can cause reactions.
  • Snoring problem occurs.
  • As the quality of breathing decreases, the quality of sleep also decreases and its regularity is disrupted.
  • Many situations such as headache and feeling of weakness during the day may be encountered.
  • Excessive weight gain may occur.
  • Diabetes may occur.
  • Heart problems may occur.

The person who cannot breathe through the nose will have to breathe through the mouth. Mouth breathing has some downsides. We can list these negative aspects for you as follows;

  • Dryness in the mouth.
  • Breath odor.
  • Problems with teeth and gums.
  • Being off feed.
  • Sneezing attacks.
  • Weakness in sense of smell.

What are The Symptoms of Septum Deviation?

Deviation is a problem that can be seen from the outside of the nose. This is how the nasal bone curvature manifests itself. However, in some cases, some symptoms occur in the nose as well. We can list these symptoms as follows;

  • Bilateral or unilateral nasal congestion.
  • Mouth breathing.
  • Sleeping with open mouth.
  • Sleep apnea and snoring.
  • Persistent recurrence of sinus infection.
  • Pain in the nose and middle of the face.

The operations performed to correct the curvatures of the septum, which separates the two nasal passages from each other and consists of cartilage in the front and bone in the back, are called “septoplasty”. Since septum deviation is a very common problem in society, “deviation surgeries” to correct this problem are among the most frequently performed surgeries.

The most common complaints in individuals with nasal cartilage curvature are snoring and nasal concha.

Septoplasty for Snoring Treatment

Septal deviation refers to the formation of curvatures in the nose, and septoplasty is the surgery applied to the operations performed to eliminate these curves. With septoplasty surgery performed under general anesthesia, you can get rid of symptoms such as snoring, frequent sinusitis infections, constant post-nasal drip and chronic headache by correcting the curvature.

Septoplasty in The Treatment of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is when you suddenly have respiratory failure for 10 seconds during sleep. During these 10 seconds, the airflow decreases by 50%, the oxygen level in the blood decreases (desaturation) or awakening occurs. Sleep apnea, which reduces the quality of life at a high level, is seen between 5% and 10% in our country. You can say goodbye to sleep apnea problem and increase your quality of life with septoplasty, the treatment of septum deviation, which is one of the causes of sleep apnea.

Septoplasty for Sinusitis Treatment

There are cavities called sinuses around the nose. Sinusitis is the filling of these spaces with inflammation. Sinusitis causes headache, shortness of breath, nasal congestion and many other problems. If deviation is detected in the patient’s nose together with sinusitis, sinusitis treatment can be performed with septoplasty. If curvature is detected in the nasal structure, sinusitis causes a much greater breathing problem.

Who wants to get rid of sinusitis or wants to get more information can read our blog post about Which method should be applied in sinusitis surgery?

Septoplasty in the Treatment of Concha Hypertrophy

Septum deviasyonu (burun kemiği eğriliği)

There is no space like a tube inside the nose, and there are three pieces of meat called concha on each side. The task of these 3 turbinates, which are the lower, middle and upper turbinates, is to warm, humidify and filter the inhaled air. Concha enlargement and swelling occur with the curvatures that occur with the deviation of the septum. Nasal congestion becomes more pronounced with hypertrophy. Hypertrophy refers to the overdevelopment of a tissue or organ. Concha hypertrophy is treated with medication or surgical methods. In some cases, septoplasty operation can be performed in combination with a nose aesthetic operation called “rhinoplasty”. Concha hypertrophy, in which intranasal soft tissues swell due to allergies, etc., can also be treated by intervening in the same operation.

How to decide on Septum Deviation Surgery (Septoplasty)?

The nose, which is a structure consisting of bone, cartilage and tissues, is a whole that should not be separated into internal and external. Before the deviation surgery, the nose should be examined internally and externally and the problems should be determined. It should be determined whether there is a deviation sign outside the nose. If there is such a problem in the nose, the process should work together.

Nasal bone crookedness is a problem that is usually evident from the outside of the nose. Performing only intranasal deviation surgery causes the destruction of the patient’s nasal cartilages, and then extranasal deviation surgery becomes very difficult.

The patient should also be consulted on this matter. If the patient requires an external intervention for the nasal bone crookedness, both the inside and outside of the nose should be operated on.

Frequently Asked Questions about Septum Deviation

How common is septum deviation?

Health experts estimate that up to 80% of people have a deviation of the septum.

What happens if the septum deviation is not treated?

If septum deviation is not treated; It is faced with problems such as poor quality sleep, low oxygen capacity, snoring, cessation of breathing during sleep, sleep disorders, dry throat, chronic pharyngitis attacks, nose bleeding.

Does septum deviation surgery change the shape of the nose?

It varies according to one’s own wishes. If the patient does not want any changes in his nose, there will be no change in the shape of the nose with a successful septum deviation surgery.

How is septum deviation surgery performed?

Deviation surgery is a type of surgery that can be performed under general or local anesthesia. After anesthesia, an incision is made on the patient’s nose and the cartilage membrane is reached through this incision. The membrane found here is removed. The crooked cartilages are taken out. It is extremely important not to damage the healthy ones while these cartilages are taken out.

Is Tampon Used in Deviation Surgery?

Although the deviation surgery can be performed without buffering. However, it is a frequently preferred practice to put thin silicone supports into the nose at the end of the surgery, due to the effects of preventing mucosal edema and blood accumulation under the mucosa in the early period.

Is the closed technique used in septum deviation surgery?

Many deviation surgeries can be performed with the method we call closed technique. In this technique, an incision is made inside the nose and the surgery is performed.

Does the voice change after septum deviation surgery?

Since deviation rhinoplasty affects the entrance and exit of air into the nose, some voice change may occur after deviation surgery.

How long does the recovery process take?

Once the patient is discharged especially in the first week, he should be careful in many matters. The patient should not lie on his side for at least 1 week. He shouldn’t miss the follow up appointments. In time, he will get rid of the bruising and swelling problem associated with the surgery. Then the prohibitions on the patient are lifted one by one. If nothing goes wrong, the nose will be settled at the end of 1 year.

Can I breathe more easily after septum deviation surgery?

The general answer to your burning question about whether septoplasty can help you breathe better is yes. After undergoing septum deviation surgery, you will notice a significant improvement in your breathing. It is very common to experience less nasal congestion than before, which allows for better breathing.

At what age can septum deviation surgery be performed?

It is more appropriate to perform septum deviation surgery after the age of 18, when bone and cartilage development has stopped. In addition, it can be done with peace of mind in patients in their 40s and 50s. If it is an emergency, it is not inconvenient to do it in childhood.

Does septum deviation affect the eyes?

Septum deviation does not cause pain or vision problems; but it could be a sinus infection. Symptoms of sinus infection are facial or sinus pain, headache, runny nose, post-nasal drip, congestion, and fever. It can also cause orbital or eye socket and ear infections.

Septum deviation surgery (septoplasty) is effective in the treatment of which diseases?

With septoplasty, you can get rid of symptoms such as snoring, frequent sinusitis infections, constant post-nasal drip and chronic headache.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty is the art of making a natural looking nose that has characteristics related to the race (European, African, Middle Eastern, Latin American, Asian and Hispanic) to which people belong. With various surgical techniques, the cosmetic shape desired by the patient is performed by correcting the deformities in the nose. As a matter of fact, since rhinoplasty is a personal procedure, each rhinoplasty is planned according to the specific facial features and general nose structure of the patient. However, the different ethnic structures of individuals highlight certain characteristic nose types. Considering the nose structure of Asians, it can be said that the nose structure is generally smaller and humpless compare to other ethnic noses. Depending on this situation, the scope of the rhinoplasty operation will vary.

 

Common Nose Characteristics by Ethnicity and the Applied Method

Common features are seen in nose types originating from different ethnicities. Surgical techniques for noses with this feature also differ. Ethnic rhinoplasty is significantly different from conventional rhinoplasty for people of Caucasian descent. Nasal structure that requires cartilage and bone removal is seen in Caucasians, but ethnic rhinoplasty is performed in people of African-American origin or Asians, with nose augmentation and cartilage addition method. Most importantly, ethnic rhinoplasty aims to help patients improve their facial appearance without losing their unique facial features.

 

Common Nose Characteristics and Generally Applied Method

Nose Augmentation: Augmentation is common in all ethnicities. Subtle changes are made to the angles and the definition of certain areas to balance the proportionality of the nose. It is mostly done by rearranging the cartilage. In some cases, cartilage (graft) may need to be taken from the rib due to cartilage deficiency. Examples;

  • Creating clearer or softer lines where the nostrils meet the bridge of the nose to create the illusion of a narrower tip.
  • Pointing the tip of the nose up (rotation) or down (rotation) to increase or shorten its distance from the lip. This changes how close the nose appears to the face and can offset a prominent bridge.

 

Revision rhinoplasty: Some patients may benefit from revision surgery to correct previous unsuccessful surgeries. Revisional ethnic rhinoplasty requires expertise. Any surgery can result in scar tissue, which increases the complexity of rhinoplasty approximately tenfold.

Nose Reduction: Reducing the physical size of the nose by removing cartilage and bone from the infrastructure. The goal is to bring the previously protruding features closer to the rest of the face. This is more common in Middle Eastern patients.

Projection: Increasing the physical size of the nose by grafting cartilage from the patient’s septum and/or ribs to the underlying structure in the flatter areas of the nose. Projection allows these areas of the nose to stick further from the face, resulting in a narrower, more elegant and more balanced look. This is more common in African-American, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, and Hispanic patients.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty Types

European Rhinoplasty

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

From generation to generation, Europeans have facial phenotypes and nasal characteristics belonging to their ethno-cultural, hybrid and geographical features. While the nose structure of European origin varies, they mostly have thin skin, an upturned nose tip, a thin and prominent nose structure.

The most popular requests from European rhinoplasty patients are:

  • Reducing the size of the nose – Some patients want the facial features to be more prominent by reducing the size of the nose.
  • Improve the bridge of the nose – Some patients may want a flatter profile, while others may want a more curved nose structure.
  • Obtaining a natural appearance– It is important to preserve the nose features of European origin after rhinoplasty.
  • Achieving a celebrity look – Some patients want to have the nose of an artist they love, and request a famous look without losing the naturalness of the nose structure.
  • Breathing problem – The person who will have a nose surgery after the operation wants to get a natural appearance, as well as to eliminate the breathing problem by repairing the structural problems in the nose.

 

Middle East Rhinoplasty

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

While the nose structure varies in most Arab countries, the nose structure is similar in most people of Middle Eastern ethnicity. Middle Eastern individuals have thicker skin. The tip of the nose is drooping, wide and less prominent. There is usually a hump on the bridge of the nose. The base of the nose may be wide. In addition to the thickness of the skin, the cartilage of many female and male patients with middle eastern nose structure is relatively weak. Every effort is made to strengthen the cartilage.

Some of the most popular goals for Middle Eastern rhinoplasty patients include:

  • Improving the bridge of the nose – Some people want to maintain the straight profile commonly associated with the Middle Eastern nose, while others want to achieve a more curved or “scooped” nose dorsum commonly associated with Northern and Western European noses.
  • Fixing a droopy nose tip – Many patients want to raise the position of the tip of the nose to improve the angle of the nose.
  • Stabilizing a hyperdynamic nasal tip – Some people try to prevent the tip of the nose from moving downward when smiling or talking.
  • Reducing the size of the nose – Some patients simply want to reduce the size of their nose so it fits better with the rest of their facial features.
  • Improving nasal breathing – A few people want to improve their nasal breathing ability by repairing a crooked septum and/or other structural issues.

 

African-American Rhinoplasty

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

African American rhinoplasty refers to nose surgery specifically designed to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose while respecting the typical characteristics of individuals of African descent. The African-American nose structure features thicker ethnic skin, a wider tip, a wider lower nasal bridge, and enlarged nostrils.

Some of the most common goals and aesthetic preferences among black rhinoplasty patients are:

  • Adjusting the bridge of the nose – Some people want to narrow the bridge of the nose to achieve better nose-face balance.
  • Nose elevation – Many patients want to raise the bridge of the nose to add height to a “flattened” nose.
  • Correction of the tip of the nose – Few people want to improve the definition of the tip of the nose for better projection.
  • Narrowing the nostrils – Some patients try to reduce the base and width of the nostrils to reduce a “bright” appearance.
  • Resolving nasal breathing problems – Some individuals seek to correct a deviated septum and/or other structural problems to improve nasal breathing.

 

Hispanic Rhinoplasty

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

Hispanic rhinoplasty; It is a term that encompasses nose surgery for individuals of many different Hispanic and Latino descent, including people from or with ancestry from Spain, Mexico, Central America, South America, and various Caribbean island nations. Many Latin patients complain of the flatness or arch of the nasal dorsum, and this type of nasal dorsum causes the nose to appear much wider than it is. In Latin patients, the nostrils and nasal tip may be wide, and the nasal skin may be thick. Recession of the nasal wings is very common in people with a typical Latino nose.

While the exact reasons for continuing treatment are entirely unique to each person, some of the most common cosmetic and functional aspirations shared by most Latino/Spanish rhinoplasty patients include:

  • Narrowing various parts of the nose – Some people want to reduce the width and size of the nose tips, nostrils, and bridge of the nose to more harmoniously fit their other features and overall facial aesthetics.
  • Dorsal hump reduction – A few patients attempt to straighten their dorsal hump to achieve a straight nasal bridge or a curved nasal bridge.
  • Defining the tip of the nose – Many people desire to improve the definition and contour of the nose tip for improved projection and/or a more proportional appearance.
  • Improved nasal breathing – Some patients wish to correct a crooked septum, weakened nostrils, and/or other structural nasal problems to improve their nasal breathing ability.

What is The “Implant-Free Technique” for Rhinoplasty? Can The Implant-Free Technique be Used in Hispanic Patients?

Instead of using silicone implants or other artificial materials, the patient’s own skin, bone, and tissue are grafted in to enlarge areas of the nose. Using the patient’s own materials significantly reduces the risk of complications and provides a more natural-looking result. Since the nasal structures of ethnic patients are different, implants may be ineffective. For example, Hispanic patients have slightly weaker nasal bridges and African-American patients have more fibrous tissue, both of which may not effectively support the facial implant.

Asian Rhinoplasty

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?

Asian rhinoplasty is a term that encompasses nose surgery for individuals who wish to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose while respecting the unique characteristics of individuals from or native to China, Japan, South Korea, and various other Asian countries.

Some general cosmetic and functional preferences shared by many patients seeking Asian rhinoplasty include:

  • A high and/or narrowed nose bridge – Several men and women prefer raising and/or narrowing the bridge of the nose to give height and definition to a “flattened” nose as well as improve nasal-facial balance.
  • A more defined nose – Some people aim to widen and/or lengthen their nose to make it more proportional to the general shape of their face.
  • A refined nose tip – Many people want to improve the definition of the nose tip to improve the projection of the nose.
  • Narrower nostrils – Some patients want to reduce the width and base of their nostrils to reduce the appearance of “flare”.
  • Improved nasal breathing – Some people try to repair a crooked septum and/or other structural problems to breathe better through the nose

Do I Need An Implant in Asian Rhinoplasty?

Implants are often used in Asian nose reshaping, as many Asian noses have low nasal bridges that need to be lengthened and raised. The best way to determine what is right for you is to discuss this in detail during your consultation.

Do I Need Graft Tissue for Asian Rhinoplasty?

One of the characteristics of Asian noses is the relatively low, flat, and wide nose bridge, which can make your nose appear short.

Traditional rhinoplasty techniques are often insufficient to define the bridge of the nose. Graft material options include your own cartilage (septal cartilage or rib cartilage) or irradiated and purified cadaveric rib cartilage. In the same way, the same graft is used to clarify the tip of the nose and raise the ridge of the nose. Thus, a more prominent and aesthetic result is obtained.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery Technique

As mentioned earlier, different races have certain characteristic nose and facial structures. In ethnic rhinoplasty, genetic characteristics are taken into consideration and the ethnic characteristics of the person are tried to be preserved as much as possible. The aim is to reshape the patient’s nose and repair any structural defects. What is important in ethnic rhinoplasty is not the elimination of the characteristic features from the ethnic group to which the person belongs; is to make a person a beautiful member of the race to which he belongs. In ethnic rhinoplasty, as well as in all nose surgeries, a planning is made to take care of the natural rhinoplasty. Therefore, the golden ratio is observed when performing ethnic rhinoplasty. In other words, a road map is drawn by considering all the elements of the person’s face and patient wishes. Within the scope of ethnic rhinoplasty, cartilage reduction or augmentation practices are applied to a certain extent in line with the wishes of the patient. In this way, the nose is reshaped and modeled. Nasal lines can be made more prominent with cartilage grafts added according to the created surgery plan. The bridge of the nose can be enlarged with cartilage grafts, the nose can be elongated or the tip of the nose can be clarified. This includes the process of narrowing the base of the nose. At this point, the important thing is the surgery plan that the doctor creates by taking into account the results obtained after the examination and your demands.

The main techniques and technologies used in rhinoplasty operations are as follows;

  • Closed Rhinoplasty
  • Open Rhinoplasty
  • Micromotor Technology Rhinoplasty
  • Microrhinoplasty
  • Piezo Ultrasonic Technology Rhinoplasty
  • Dorsum Preservation Surgery

 

The rhinoplasty technique and technology used in ethnic rhinoplasty is also important. As TAS Aesthetic Surgery Center, we use closed technique rhinoplasty and micro-motor technology, which is superior to other techniques in ethnic nose surgeries.

Factors Affecting Ethnic Rhinoplasty Prices and Attained Result

There is no clear information about ethnic rhinoplasty prices before the examination. As a matter of fact, the full price comes out as a result of the examination. The main reason for this is that there are many factors that affect ethnic rhinoplasty prices. Variables such as the success and experience of the aesthetic doctor in ethnic rhinoplasty, the hospital stay, and the number of days in the hospital can be counted among the factors in question. The ultimate goal in ethnic rhinoplasty; It is to shape the nose structure in accordance with the ethnic origin of the person and give it a natural appearance. But to give an idea to our readers, we can say ethnic rhinoplasty prices vary between 6.000 – 30.000 Euro.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty Suitable For?

Suitable nose types for ethnic rhinoplasty can be listed as follows; Those who have a very small, very flat nose, if there is a nasal imbalance that is incompatible with the chin and forehead structure, if there are wide nostrils, conditions such as width and length that spoil the aesthetic appearance of the nose. Patients with common nasal features such as droopy, disproportionate and asymmetrical noses, bulbous nasal tips, and excessively upturned nose are also suitable candidates for this operation. As in other nose operations, ethnic rhinoplasty cannot be performed in children who have not completed their nose development, patients must be at least 17 years old.

What Are the Risks?

As with most surgical procedures, there are risks in rhinoplasty. One of these risks is the anesthesia used during the surgery. Swelling in the nose is not a risk. It is the skin’s natural response. 80% of swelling resolves in the first two months. The nose takes its final shape in 12 months. Relatively rare risks include asymmetries, delayed healing, numbness, infection, and scarring.

Many of these risks can be avoided with technical expertise and skill. Revision rates for rhinoplasty are around 8% in the World. Since smoking delays the healing process, it is recommended that patients quit smoking before surgery.

Will There be Any Scars After Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty operations are performed in two ways, closed and open. The method to be applied is decided by your doctor according to the problems that occur in the nose. The most important feature of the operations performed with the closed technique is that the surgical incisions are removed from the inside and there is no scar. In surgeries performed with open technique, an external incision is applied. Since these incisions are in the lower parts of the nose, they are not seen if they are not looked very carefully. While there is a possibility of scarring in open surgeries, there are no scars in closed surgeries.

Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty a Difficult Operation?

In the past, rhinoplasty was a very difficult operation due to the lack of technology and the recovery period was also quite long. However, as a result of technological advances, rhinoplasty operations can now be performed very easily and successfully by doctors. The degree of difficulty of the operation varies according to the problems in the nose.

How Does Ethnic Rhinoplasty Affect The Sense Of Smell?

Swelling of the nasal structures may cause rhinoplasty to alter the patient’s sense of smell. Fortunately, the normal sense of smell should return as the swelling subsides. Some patients notice an improvement in their sense of smell after the procedure because of their open nasal passages.

What are the Points to Consider in Nose Care After Rhinoplasty?

After rhinoplasty, attention should be paid to nose care. Therefore, in addition to following the doctor’s recommendations;

  • The patient should rest with head area up position.
  • The nose area should be protected from all kinds of traumatic events.
  • Glasses should not be used during the first 2 months.
  • It should be protected from sun rays.

Big and long nose surgery

Big And Long Nose Surgery

People have lots of noise types. One of the most common nose type is long nose. A nose that is bigger for face has a negative effect on the appereance of the face. In this context we preapared a blog for the ones with big noses with “How to get a smaller nose?’’ question. We hope to be helpful. Have a nice reading.

Is it hard to operate a big nose?

Since nose is located in the middle of the face, it has a huge impact on the face appereance. A nose longer than normal levels can negativly affect the look. Patients can be uncomfortable with front, profile or both view. Long nose surgery is the most difficult surgery amoung surgeries. However, it is not impossible to have your dream nose. The important thing here will be to choose the best surgeon for your needs. As a result, the answer to the question ‘’Can the big nose be shortened?’’ is ‘’Yes’’. Humpy noses can also be included in this situaition.

Does the nose shorten after surgery?

At the surgery bones is reduced but the amount of the skin stays same. The skin adapts to the underlying bones and reduced in size. After 1-2 years, the skin fits exactly on the bones and the shape of the nose settles into place. And now you have your desired nose! Since the skin amount stays the same it is not possible to reduce the nose more than %20-25.

How small can the nose be made?

As it is mentioned above reducing the nose more than %20-25 is not possible. Otherwise skin will be bigger fort he bones and cartilages.

How is big nose surgery performed?

For long nose reduction surgery, an examination is made with the plastic surgeon first. As a result of the interview, a roadmap for long nose surgery is drawn. While drawing this roadmap, everyone’s own face and nose type is taken as a basis. As a matter of fact, the image of the nose cannot be thought of independently from other elements of the face. Therefore, while planning the major rhinoplasty surgery, factors such as cheekbones, jaw structure, forehead structure are also taken into consideration, and it is aimed to create a beautiful harmony between the facial organs by evaluating the face as a whole. In addition to all these, it is also taken into account that the nose can be made small but within limitations. As a matter of fact, factors such as the thickness of the nasal skin and the functional state of the nasal airways are among the limiting factors. Making the nose much smaller than it should be can damage functions such as nasal breathing. Therefore, it is more important to create a nose that is compatible and proportional to the other elements of the face, rather than getting a tiny nose at the point of big nose reduction. Necessary examinations and tests are applied to the patient while drawing a correct roadmap for big nose surgery. It is evaluated whether there are diseases that pose a risk for rhinoplasty.

When the day of surgery for long nose reduction comes, the length of the cartilages that cause the nose to be long is shortened. In some cases, the cartilage at the tip of the nose also needs to be reduced. However, situations such as the back of the chin can cause the nose to appear larger than it is. Patients are often unaware of this. The plastic surgeon notices the situation during the examination and informs the patient about the situation. If the patient accepts, procedures such as fat injection or implant can be applied to the chin to make the chin appear further and harmonize with the nose, and the patient will attain the image she dreams of. As a result of the evaluations, no matter what aesthetic intervention is made, the changes in the patient’s nose begin to settle over time, depending on the type of aesthetics performed. This period lasts an average of 1 year.

As TAŞ Aesthetic Surgery Center, we have come to the end of the blog post we prepared about big and long nose surgery. Throughout the article, we first gave general information about big and large nose surgery. Then we tried to inform you about the surgery process. Have a nice day.

Droopy nose tip surgery

Droopy Nose Tip Surgery

Patients who want to have rhinoplasty mostly complains about droopy tip. One of the most asked question is ‘’Why I have a droppy nose?’’. Let’s review this topic together.

How can you understand you have a droppy nose?

Normally there is 90 degree angle between lips and tip of the nose. If you have a droppy nose this angle will decrease. Especially droppy nose will be seen from the side angle.

What are the reasons for a droppy nose?

There is two main reasons for droopy nose. First one is the weakness of the nasal tip cartilage structure. This weak cartilage can not stand against the gravity as a result the tip of the nose tends downward. The second one is the strenght of the laughing muscles.

Surgery can be a solution for patients with droppy nose, without any intervention on the nasal dorsum. Just after this intervention, usually splint and cast using are not necessary. General anesthesia is recommended.

How the operation is performed for droopy nose?

With the advancement in technology nose surgery became easier. It is possible to have your dream nose with our atraumatic technics. The surgery is performed at the hospital and lasts 2 hours. Surgery of patients with straight nasal dorsum will take less time which is 45 minutes.

How is the healing process after droopy nose surgery?

Patients can be discharged on the same day after droopy nose surgery. But if there are multiple deformities which adressed at the same surgery, then the patient should stay one night after the surgery.

If just droopy nose surgery is performed, healing process will be shorter. Splint won’t be used unless there’s intervention on the airway. Within 2-3 days patients can return to their normal life.

When the swelling at the nose tip will decrease?

It is necessary to wait one year for the nasal tip swelling to completely go down. You may not like the image you see for the first time, as swelling occurs at the tip of the nose after nose surgery. But after 1 year, the result you see in the mirror will satisfy you.

Techniques Used During Droopy Nose Surgery

The surgery will be performed by Closed Atraumatic Technique. There won’t be any scar since there was no cut on the nose. It is not hard to have a nose that fits your face.

Does the nose tip drop after the surgery?

In order not to experience it again, the cause of droopy nose tip should be investigated first. If the nasal tip muscles are weak, which causes the nasal tip to be drooping, the strengthening of these muscles should be planned; If the laughing muscles are strong, these muscles should be weakened. Therefore, nasal tip drooping is not observed after the operation.

How much is droopy nose surgery?

One of the most frequently asked questions by those who want to have nasal tip surgery for various reasons is the question of “How much is droopy nose surgery?” Rhinoplasty prices vary depending on the structure of the patient’s nose, the success of the rhinoplasty surgeon who will perform surgery, and many other similar factors. If you wish, you can review our article “The factors that determine the prices of rhinoplasty” on the subject.

Things to Consider Before Rhinoplasty

Your nose may have a structure that is not compatible with your face or has deformities. You can have rhinoplasty surgery for a beautiful nose that is suitable for your face, within natural limits, purified from your deformities. However, there are some preparations you need to know and do before this process.

You have decided to have a nose job. But if you do not know what to do, this article will be enlightening for you.

Before the rhinoplasty surgery, the first thing to do is to decide. Making a decision means that you are aware of the conditions and deformities in your nose that bother you and you want to get rid of these situations. The decision-making process is not something you can do in a period of 3-5 days. It may take years for you to become aware of your deformities, accept them, and decide to embark on this process. For example, as a result of a hit you received as a child, it may complete the development of the nose with deformity. There may be a fracture in the nose line. Airway problems may also occur as the nose will develop incorrectly in line with this impact. You may have noticed this situation years later, as it will be difficult to notice from childhood.

Another of the preparations before rhinoplasty surgery is the research phase after making a decision. There are many techniques and tools developed with the effect of technology for rhinoplasty. You can find out which technique is the most suitable for you by talking to the masters of the work. We, surgeons, first determine the deformities of our patient who came for rhinoplasty surgery, and then we listen to you during our detailed examinations. Our personal recommendation is that you do not consult a single surgeon. Seeing the differences with many surgeons, it is in favor of choosing your own doctor within the framework of trust. Your research process may not be a process that you can complete in a short time. It is useful not to rush. This will be the healthiest.

After meeting with several plastic surgeons during your research phase, another stage is the choice of a plastic surgeon that will address your cosmetic and health concerns.

You have noticed your deformities for rhinoplasty surgery. You wanted to have surgery, made a decision and started the research process. You talked to several plastic surgeons and got different opinions. In line with the data you have, you have chosen the best method and your plastic surgeon for you. Then what?
