Rhinoplasty in Turkey

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is surgery to change the shape of your nose by modifying the bone or cartilage. It is one of the most common types of plastic surgery. Nose surgery is performed for both aesthetic and health reasons. People get rhinoplasty in Turkey to repair their nose after an injury, to correct breathing problems or a birth defect, or because they’re unhappy with the appearance of their nose.

Who is the best candidate for rhinoplasty:

    You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if:
  • Your facial growth is complete.
  • If you are physically healthy.
  • If you are not a smoker.
  • You have a positive outlook and realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.

Rhinoplasty - Nose job Operation

The rhinoplasty operation consists in five phases. The beginning phase is the anesthesia, your operation will be performed in general anesthesia. The second phase is incision. Rhinoplasty is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. Through these incisions, the skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages is gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose. Third phase is reshaping the nose structure. An overly large nose may be reduced by removing bone or cartilage. Sometimes surgery of the nose may require the addition of cartilage grafts. Most commonly, cartilage from the septum, the partition in the middle of the nose, is used for this purpose. Occasionally cartilage from the ear or rarely a section of rib cartilage can be used. Fourth phase is correcting a deviated septum. If the septum is deviated, it can be straightened and the projections inside the nose reduced to improve breathing. The fifth and last phase is closing the incision. Once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, nasal skin and tissue is redraped and incisions are closed. Additional incisions may be placed in the natural creases of the nostrils to alter their size.

Rhinoplasty- Nose Job Consultaion

A preliminary consultation for nose job will be done from your pictures and medical background. Then upon request we can organise an online consultation for you before you arrive. Once you are here you will have your consultation with the doctor. During your consultation you can get answers to all your questions. We are never in a hurry and listen to all your questions and doubts.

    In your consultation you need to discuss with your doctor these topics:
  • Your expectations and the desired outcome.
  • If you have any medical condition, drug allergies and medical treatments.
  • If you use any medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco or drugs.
  • The surgeries you had in the past.

    Your surgeon may also:
  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors.
  • Examine your nose.
  • Take your photographs.
  • Discuss what options you have.
  • Recommend a course of treatment.
  • Discuss likely outcomes of Rhinoplasty and any risks or potential complications.

Rhinoplasty Aftercare

Rhinoplasty Aftercare

After the operation, the patient is transported from the operating room to the room wearing a special nasal package. It is removed 6 days after surgery. Its task is to stabilize the nose in the correct position and support the shaping of the nose. More intense exercise is recommended after 6 weeks.


The best candidate for a rhinoplasty is someone who doesn't like the way their nose looks and has been troubled by one or more of its features. Often this is a nose that seems to be too large, or droops, or has a prominent bump on top. People who have a nasal structure that is handicapping their ability to breath can have rhinoplasty to correct the issue. Individuals with damaged or misshapen noses can change their appearances with rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is suitable for patients who have reached complete facial and psychological maturity. Full nasal maturity is reached by people at different ages. Generally speaking ideal age range for rhinoplasty are patients aged between 20 and 45 years old.

During procedure you will be under general anesthesia so you won’t feel any pain at that moment. Right after the operation you might feel some discomfort but it is not a painful surgery. Some patients may experience swelling after the surgery but in few days it will disappear.

Bruises tend to disappear between 7 and 10 days after surgery. However some patients might experience bruising up to 4 weeks after Rhinoplasty. In case of nasal swellings may persist longer, even up to 6 weeks. Although final result of Rhinoplasty is seen up to one year. It will ultimately depend on the patient’s healing process.

Incisions used in a closed rhinoplasty are inside of the nose so they are slightly visible. In case of open rhinoplasty incisions are small and placed under columella that is the part of the nose which separates the nostrils. Even in this case cars from nose job are minimal and less visible.

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure and commonly takes between 1.5 hour up to 3 hours.

We advise our rhinoplasty patients to avoid wearing all kind of glasses for three months. During that period, the nasal bones are not completely healed so slight pressure might cause deformations.

After rhinoplasty your nose will be very delicate and fragile. Therefore it is necessary to take care to avoid possible injury. It is the best to avoid swimming and sunbathing for the first 6 weeks.

In the first 4 weeks we do not recommend gym or any training activities. After 4 weeks you may start light physical activities and after 6 weeks you may go back to regular training activities.

After rhinoplasty surgery it is recommended not to wear make up until the plaster on your nose is removed. If your skin after removal of nose package will be in good condition you might be allowed to wear make up after one week.

You can go back to your home country at least 5 days after surgery.
