THE SPECIALIST EXPLAINED: DO NOT HAVE A NOSE JOB BEFORE THE AGE OF 18

Turkey Medicals member and American hospital department Aesthetic and Plastic The expert Assoc. Dr. suggested that rhinoplasty operations should not be performed before the age of 18.

Aesthetic and Plastic Reconstructive The expert Associate Doctor  gave information about nose surgeries known as rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty. Assoc. Dr. stated that rhinoplasty is the most common aesthetic surgery performed in aesthetic surgery clinics in our country and all over the world, and said, “Aesthetic surgery can be performed to correct the shape of the nose in those who are uncomfortable with the shape of the nose. If there are functional disorders such as both a figure problem and breathing problems, surgery can be planned to correct both the problems. Rhinoplasty can be performed for the treatment of these deformities in people who have had a deformity of the nose for reasons such as accidents or cancer, and when revision surgery is required in patients who have previously had rhinoplasty,” he said.

FUNCTIONAL PROBLEMS CHANGE THE TREATMENT

Aesthetic and Plastic Reconstructive Doctor said that the patient’s treatment can change in functional problems, “Patients apply to solve aesthetic problems such as inability to breathe, nasal congestion and loud noisy breathing, snoring, or a belt on the back of the nose, low nose tip, curvature, asymmetry, width of the tip of the nose. After listening to the patients’ complaints, it is understood what the problem is with a detailed examination, direct X-ray or computed tomography. The cause of functional problems can also be different problems, such as allergic rhinitis, concha hypertrophy, nasopharynx, soft palate problems. In this case, the treatment of patients varies,” he said.

FUNCTIONAL AND AESTHETIC PROBLEMS CAN BE CORRECTED WITH AN OPERATION

Both functional and aesthetic problems can be corrected in an operation in patients, saying, “After listening to the complaints of the examined patients about aesthetic problems, the patient is informed about the planned surgery. It is explained whether the wishes of the patient are suitable for him, taking into account the wishes of the patient aesthetically. In patients with both functional and aesthetic problems, both are corrected. In this case, although the operation seems to be more complicated, both problems can be corrected in a single operation. One of the most important points in nose surgery is the planning of nose surgery according to the personal characteristics of the patient. Especially in patients who request surgery by showing a particular person’s nose as an example; if it matches the patient’s physical characteristics, gender, facial proportions, surgery can be planned or if it does not match, surgery planning is done by explaining aspects that are not. The aim of these surgeries is to get a natural-looking, exaggerated nose that is compatible with the facial contours of the person,” he said.

IT IS RECOMMENDED NOT TO DO IT BEFORE THE AGE OF 18

Aesthetic and Plastic Doctor Reconstructive stated that they recommend that the operation should not be performed before the age of 17-18, “Rhinoplasty surgery is usually not recommended to be performed before the age of 17-18. This is due to the fact that a person is expected to reach both physical and spiritual maturity. The operation is performed with general anesthesia, and after the operation, the patient has a splint on his nose and has a tampon in the nose according to the condition of the operation. Depending on the patient’s condition, a tampon may not be placed, it may be placed single or double-sided. The tampon remains for 1 day or longer. The patient is followed up in the hospital for 1 night after surgery. After surgery, a cold application is applied to the sides of the forehead and nose. Nowadays, with the development of technology, the formation of bruises and swelling is less or less common. After the operation, the patient is recommended to lie in an upright position up to 45 degrees and on his back as much as possible for 1.5-2 months. In the postoperative period, a control examination is performed for intra-nasal care and shape monitoring of patients,” he said.
