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.
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.
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.
