Thanks to this technique whole interventions are applied through the nostrils without cutting the tip of your nose, with respect to each tissue and ligament, consequently zero bruising and less swelling with a fast recovery.
During Rhinoplasty: First of all, the surgery will take in average 2-3 hours depending on the severity of the case under general anesthesia administered by the accredited anesthesiologist of the hospital. At the end of the surgery you will be applied a thermoplastic cast and modern silicon tampons in order to stabilise your nose both externally and internally. After being observed in a recovery room for about 30 minutes you will be transferred to your room. You will stay overnight in the hospital under observation, that night you might have some bleeding and leaking which will be significantly less the following days.
48 Hours After Rhinoplasty: First 48 hours after the surgery swelling will reach the maximum level and starts subsiding from the 3rd day. You need to be ready for limited breathing and getting to know breathing through your mouth. You will be using certain medications and cleaning your nose twice a day. On the 4th post op day you will be invited to the TAS Aesthetic Surgery Clinic for check up and will be given a special device to reduce the swelling until the cast removal day. It is a proven treatment which is described in details in Dr. TAS’s publication.
7 Days After Rhinoplasty: In average 7 days after discharging your cast and silicon tampons will be removed which is a totally painless procedure. After this procedure you will feel relief and start breathing through your nose. On the cast removal day almost all patients have a presentable look with zero bruising and minimal swelling and the most important thing a natural look as if you were born with that nose. When you will see your nose first time in the mirror you will see a beautiful nose but may feel strange as for your subconsious it is something new. So, now you are breathing freely and returning home as a completely new person with the rhinoplasty experience. People around will keep guessing what has been changed on your face?
2 Months After Rhinoplasty: After two months the significant amount of swelling will subside and you will be able to see the midterm results as you will be massaging your nose by special techniques which speed up the recovery process. For thick skinned patients the swelling on the upper side of the nose will resolve and come down by the gravity and will be mainly concentrated on the tip of the nose. Since it is made of soft tissues it will recover the latest. The tip settles over time into its final position.
1 Year After Rhinoplasty: Nasal structures keep being dynamic and changing throughout the healing process as the swelling doesn’t subside symmetrically. At least after one year you will be able to achieve the final results, if you have a thin skin even earlier than that. Finally your nose, your face, your confidence, your life will be upgraded to the brand new level thanks to the nose surgery done by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Suleyman TAS.
