What Is the Process Like After Nose Surgery, What Should Be Considered?

One of the most widely applied medical aesthetic interventions in the world is rhinoplasty, also known as rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can be applied to both women and men to make the shape, width and length of the nose more compatible with the contours of the face.

For What Purposes Is Nose Surgery Performed?

Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed in order for people to achieve both their health and the aesthetic image they want. While nose surgery is performed for aesthetic purposes for people who are unhappy with the shape and appearance of their nose, functional nose surgery can also be performed for people who have breathing problems for reasons such as nasal congestion as a health requirement. Nasal surgery, in which the factors that interfere with the air flow in the nose are eliminated and the nose is given the desired shape, is called Septorhinoplasty.
