Turkey Medicals member and Surgeon Doctor “A person’s face, rhinoplasty, nose, mouth, eyes, forehead, chin, smile, look, expectations, thoughts, psychology, life, and the understanding of the look and beauty of yourself by evaluating planned” by the description Dr. gave information about the subject…

When assessing facial beauty in plastic and aesthetic surgery, many concepts of aesthetic proportions and beauty have been described. The golden ratio (the number of fi), the rule of 3s, the rule of 5s, symmetries, asymmetries and many other rules. Contrary to what the majority thinks, “beauty” is hidden not in symmetry, but in asymmetry.

A fully symmetrical face is never beautiful. Objects that are pleasing to the eye, attractive and beautiful are usually shapes and patterns with slight asymmetries. This is also extremely true in facial aesthetics.

What about our nose?

A ‘single’ organ standing in the middle of the face? So the whole point is to be able to involve the nose in this symmetry battle! And then we can talk not about a beautiful “nose”, but about a beautiful “face”. When planning a rhinoplasty operation, the nose must be evaluated together with all facial elements and it is necessary to predict the consequences of changes in the current anatomy of the nose.

The length, angle, relationship of the back of the nose to the forehead, its curve, width, ratio to the tip of the nose, width of the tip of the nose, upturning, relationship to the upper lip, all of them must be proportional to each other to achieve a beautiful and natural result.

Facial proportions, expectations, local diversity and beauty concepts as a whole should be evaluated and the nose aesthetic operation should be planned individually. A nose job in Turkey that is more feminine for women and more masculine for men should be performed.

Although the rhinoplasty operation consists of a number of standard procedures, the facial anatomy, proportions, understanding of beauty and expectation of each person are different. For this reason, nose surgery should be planned by evaluating a person’s face, nose, mouth, eyes, forehead, chin, smile, look, expectation, thought, psychology, life and self-view and understanding of beauty.

How old can a rhinoplasty be done?

The structure of the upper part of the nose is bone, the structure of the lower part is cartilage. With the operation of rhinoplasty, it is possible to change the bone structure, cartilage structure and skin structure, shape and size. The changes made are permanent. For this reason, it is important that the bone and cartilage structure of the person who will undergo surgery has reached maturity.

For this, it is usually enough to have reached the age of 16-17. In rare cases, for example, in the case of deformities of the nose after a congenital or severe trauma, reconstructive operations can be performed without the need to wait.

But the ideal thing for people with the usual anatomy is that it is after the time when the facial bone structure ripens. Even if the development of the nose has been completed, if the other structures on the face have not yet been seated, it may not be possible to predict whether the new shape to be given to the nose will be in harmony with the general facial structure.
