There are many people who are not happy with their nose shape and ready to do anything to change that. However, to achieve successful results from a rhinoplasty, people need to be consistent with their decisions and actions. Every nose shape created does not suit to every face shape. Every individual has different facial features and dynamics, their facial symmetry is unique. Patients must keep this detail in mind before they undergo the surgery. The goal of a nose job is to create a new nose shape that suits to patient’s face. Therefore, pre op consultation and examinations play an important role.
One of the most important criteria for being satisfied with the results of rhinoplasty is that the patient has realistic expectations. With rhinoplasty surgery, your nose and your appearance will not change completely. If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of your nose, you should discuss with your surgeon how much this can change with surgery. Just as your nose cannot be rebuilt from scratch, your new nose will also be designed in the most suitable size for your face proportions.
Rhinoplasty provides you with clear results regarding the aesthetic and functional problems of your nose. However, you may have aesthetic concerns about the results of your surgery and the appearance you will achieve. With rhinoplasty, first of all, medical and functional problems are eliminated, and the appearance is improved by correcting the problems that distort the existing image in the nose. A millimeter change in your nose will reflect on your face very positively and will reinforce the harmony of your nose with other organs in your face.
The change of the nose, which is one of the most important organs in your face, will reflect positively on your face and this will support the self-esteem of the person. However, this does not mean that surgery will radically change your life and create a new you. Therefore, it is very important for those who want to have a rhinoplasty to have realistic expectations and to be physically and psychologically healthy.
Before the rhinoplasty is performed, you should clearly express your expectations in the consultation with your surgeon. In this consultation, functional and visual defects in your nose will also be detected by going through a physical examination. As Mediface Medical Center Antalya, Turkey, with the advancement of technology, we evaluate the photographs of the patient taken from different angles in digital environment before rhinoplasty surgery in our clinic, and a new nose shape is created in the virtual environment with computer programs. Thus, patients have information about the possible post op result. After the rhinoplasty, patients should not neglect their checkups and follow the doctor’s recommendations.
Although many patients achieve the results they want visually and functionally after rhinoplasty, it cannot be said that everyone is satisfied because it is a subject based on personal tastes. In order to have the right expectations, you must first establish a healthy dialogue with your surgeon and exchange ideas. Even if you have different expectations, knowing that your surgeon is more experienced in rhinoplasty and respecting his ideas and recommendations will ensure a healthy outcome of the operation.
The latest approach in rhinoplasty is to provide changes that will make a big difference with small touches. The important thing is to correct the defects by making the necessary changes without damaging the natural anatomy. An unnatural and extremely aesthetic nose is no longer preferred by both authorities and patients. It is inevitable that operations where you and your surgeon have the same expectations and catch a common language will yield more successful results.
The Importance of the Nose Shape in Rhinoplasty
The nose is located in the most crucial part of the face as a structure with two protruding holes, located in the area between the forehead and the upper lip, where breathing and sniffing functions take place. The nose that opens out on the face goes towards the throat on the back. There is a mucus layer, hairs and capillaries in the nasal interior. Because the interior is hairy and humid, the air coming from the outside is moistened, heated and the air is cleaned from foreign materials.
Rhinoplasty, which is the most preferred and performed among all aesthetic operations, is an operation that is popular with adolescents and adults. Nowadays, everyone has started to pay more attention to their appearance. For this reason, it is important that the nose shape is correct as desired. Rhinoplasty is the best way to achieve this.
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
It is done under general anesthesia. First of all, it is evaluated whether the patient is ready for this change or not. Their profile is examined, the airways are checked. Patients are informed about the possible complications of the surgery. Depending on the changes in the nose, procedures that take up to 3-4 hours are performed. Since the results are not obtained immediately in these surgeries, the healing process takes a little longer. However, it is not a painful operation.
