Nostril aesthetics in Turkey

Turkey Medicals, “Nostrils are important elements that beautifies a person’s facial appearance and increases their attractiveness. Especially non-symmetrical nostrils can make many people more unhappy than other defects in the nose. For this reason, the design of the nostril is one of the indicators of the success of a rhinoplasty operation. Asymmetrical nostrils allow the nose to be much more efficient both functionally and visually.”

What allows a rhinoplasty operation to have much more natural results are the nostrils. Symmetrical and normal-sized oval nostrils make the results of nose surgery look much more natural. In particular, in order for the breathing function to be performed properly, the nostrils must be wide enough. In some cases, the nostrils may be innately small due to the extremely narrowness of the nose. In such cases, grafting is performed to the nasal region with cartilage taken from another part of the body in order to expand the nasal wings. This process is important both in terms of raising the wall of the nose and making the overall facial appearance more attractive. For wide or open nostrils, rhinoplasty operations usually involve narrowing the nose by removing tissue from the part where the nostril meets the cheek. But sometimes it may also be necessary to remove parts from the base tissue of the nose, which is part of the nasal structure.

This condition allows the nostrils to narrow inward. Becoming symmetrical of the nostrils can completely change a person’s overall facial expression and give a healthier image, so much so that in some cases, with the elimination of asymmetry in the nostrils, the person may not need to have another operation on the nose. But one of the biggest causes of asymmetry in the nostrils is nasal curvature. The tilt of 0.5-1 degree for the human nose is considered normal standards.

The tolerance to nasal curvature in men is higher than in women due to aesthetic concerns. The main goal of rhinoplasty surgery is to bring problems such as nasal curvature and asymmetric nostrils to normal physiological limits. Lowering the nose, which had a curvature of 3-4 degrees before the operation, to below 1 degree after operation is considered to have achieved the goal of the operation.

Before the nose operation, during the surgeon’s examination, it is decided which type of operation will be performed for the nose that the patient complains about. The new nose image that the person will have in the digital environment is designed and presented to the patient. The patient is psychologically prepared for the idea of the operation and his new appearance.

There are many factors that are important for the success of nostril design in rhinoplasty procedures. The first of these is the experience and manual skill of the surgeon. Then a little mathematics goes into the work and the most suitable nostril sizes are calculated with the golden ratio. The distance between a person’s nostrils should be directly proportional to the distance at the inner edges of the eye. If it is large enough for the patient to breathe and is compatible with the overall shape of the face, the nostrils are given the previously planned shape.

After nostril aesthetics, the patient’s healing process first depends on the patient’s skin structure. With the latest techniques used today, it has greatly shortened the healing process of patients. The patient can recover and return to work in about a week and will be able to continue his daily life comfortably.

In addition to improving the aesthetic appearance of a person, nostril aesthetics also positively improves the quality of life. Patients who can breathe a sufficient amount can get rid of problems such as allergies that affect general health. All individuals who are uncomfortable with the asymmetric appearance in the nostrils and have passed the age of 18 can apply for rhinoplasty surgery for nostril design
