The nose is such a prominent feature, but it needs to be compatible and balanced with the other facial features. This is called facial harmony and is made up of your gender, ethnicity, bone structure, facial dimensions, and the aesthetic shape of your face. Your nose must look like it belongs with the rest of your face.
Unfortunately, yours probably doesn’t.
Our patients find that their new nose gives them a significant boost in their self-confidence since they’re no longer embarrassed about it. Some also find that they experience a remarkable improvement in their breathing ability and don’t snore as much anymore.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult cosmetic procedures to perform, not only because your nose is so visible, but also because it’s such a central and identifying facial feature. Even the subtlest of changes can make a huge impact on your appearance, to the point that people can no longer recognize you. You want to change your nose for the better but still, look like you. That’s why you must select the right surgeon to perform your surgery.


Let’s learn how a Nose Surgery, Nose Job, or Rhinoplasty procedure is done!

Nose Plastic Surgery

Occasionally, other than appearance problems there may be internal problems, such as polyps, nasal septal deviation, and enlargement of the nasal aorta. In these cases, in addition to treating the problem, one can think of cosmetic surgery, but only with the approval of a specialist in otolaryngology. Up to this point, we have come up with several reasons to believe that you need to go to a specialist plastic surgeon to get a good result in cosmetic nose surgery. The following are the pros and cons that should be respected before and after nose surgery.

Types of open and closed nose plastic surgery:

You should know that Rhinoplasty is performed both open and closed. Rhinoplasty is a procedure in which we make a delicate incision between the nostrils, where the skin is easily lifted from the nose, but the closed procedure involves cutting through the nose. However, in both methods, the skin is separated from the nasal skeleton because it is necessary to access the nasal skeleton. Each of the open and closed nose procedures has advantages that we will be mentioned below.

Advantages of Open Rhinoplasty:

In open Rhinoplasty, the doctor has better vision and therefore he can make the necessary adjustments more easily. But this is not possible in closed surgery. In open surgery, the ability to perform surgery on difficult noses and inserting cartilage and bone grafts or dentures is easier.

Advantages of a closed Rhinoplasty:

  • It does not have skin incision in the Colum Ella area.
  • • Shorter operation time.
  • •Less postoperative inflation

For which kinds of noses are closed and open Rhinoplasty recommended?

If the nasal defects are mild and limited to bone prominence (hunch) or cartilaginous prominence and the tip of the nose requires limited action, closed technique is preferred, but in reconstructive surgeries that are most commonly performed secondarily, (for treating traumatic deformities such as nasal congestion) an open surgery is better. In broiler nose surgery, an open surgery would be more appropriate since there is often a need for augmentation and reconstruction to form the weak cartilage.

Causes of Harelip and Ways to Treat Cleft Palate

  • Infantile cleft palate or harelip is a congenital defect and smoking during pregnancy is one of the most important causes of this defect.

Is nasal cosmetic surgery better with anesthesia or numbness?

Certainly the physician’s opinion is the first thing to consider when examining a person’s condition, but overall anesthesia is better than topical anesthesia if all standards are met.

Before Getting a Nose Job:

Your physical condition must be ready for this surgery, so provide and maintain the following conditions:

  • Smoking is prohibited two weeks before surgery
  • Aspirin and similar drugs such as Propene should not be taken at least two weeks before surgery because they increase the tendency to bleed.
  • Delay the nose job if you’ve caught cold.
  • Take herbal or chemical medicine consulting your doctor.
  • Like many other surgeries, don’t eat 8 hours before surgery.

Post-Rhinoplasty Care:

During the first few days after surgery, any impact on the nose should be avoided.

  • For example, you should sleep face up.
  • The use of a special ice bag on the eyes after nose surgery is required up to 24 hours after surgery to reduce swelling.
  • Nasal secretion discharge using pressure should not be performed at all up to 2 to 3 weeks after surgery.
  • The nose can be washed several times daily with salt serum solution for several weeks after surgery to ease breathing.
  • Exposure to the sun in the first few weeks after surgery should be avoided.
  • And, as much as possible, a few weeks after surgery, it is best not to wear glasses, especially heavy sunglasses.
  • Avoid heavy exercise two to three weeks after surgery.
  • Eating foods that cause skin allergies and itching is forbidden. It is also not recommended to eat foods that require prolonged chewing until the first week after nasal cosmetic surgery.
  • Washing the face or bathing is permitted if the dressing on the nose is not soaked.

What to Eat and Not to Eat After Nose Surgery?

  • Hard foods are forbidden and eating cooked soups and potatoes and boiled vegetables is recommended.
  • Eating slow foods that are hard to digest is not recommended.
  • Avoid spicy foods.
  • Drink liquids but without straw.
  • Avoid acidic fruits like orange and orange juice on the day of surgery.
  • Mango juice and pureed pineapple juice are suitable for the first days after nose surgery.
  • Nutrition helpful for the first week after nose surgery:
  • After the second day, the condition gradually gets better and the patient can eat more easily, but remember that overeating and not eating enough both will be equally harmful during this time.
  • The first week after your nose surgery, you are recovering and should not use this time to lose weight, so go on a more nutritious diet divided into more meals with lower volume.
  • Vitamin C and D and zinc minerals are important because vitamin C and zinc are very important in the rapid healing of wounds. Vitamin C and zinc are best combined with dietary sources of vitamin A.
  • Remember that zinc is found in whole grains and meats, Vitamin A in all kinds of meats and dairy products, and vitamin C in fresh fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits, and their consumption helps to speed up recovery.

The night before Rhinoplasty surgery:

  • Wash your face with iodine soap for three minutes. Avoid touching jewelry with Betadine as it may stain it. Do not use a conditioner or hair spray after shampooing.
  • Get enough rest
  • Do not drink fluids and food after 6 pm before surgery
  • Make some diluted food or soup for after surgery
