Among the aesthetic surgeries performed in Turkey, nose surgeries are in the first. One of the issues that patients are most interested in is whether nose surgeries can be performed in the summer. Can nose surgery be done in summer? Do you mind the patient? iHealth member and hospital in Antalya Specialist in Diseases of the Ear, Nose and Throat Professor Doctor, she explained.

There is a general perception in society that it is inconvenient to perform rhinoplasty surgeries in the summer season. This is due to the materials used in past surgeries. Yes, the old, classic bandages used in past eras and the plaster on the nose gave the patient a feeling of discomfort with sweating in the summer. In addition, the use of air conditioning was not so common in the past. These are the reasons why people did not use the time to have surgery since the summer season. But now the circumstances have changed a lot.

The bandages currently used are modern materials that are comfortable to breathe and are not affected by seasonal conditions. In addition, air conditioners are now available almost everywhere, in areas where people spend time. Therefore, it is not inconvenient to have nose surgery in the summer season.

There are advantages to having surgery in summer

As a result of all the scientific research conducted and during our years of experience, we have seen that patients who have had surgery in the summer season do not experience more bleeding, bruising, edema and more swelling than patients who have had surgery in other seasons.

The summer season has some advantages. It can be said that this season accelerates recovery after surgery. For example, up to 3 weeks after surgery, the patient may go to sea. Sea water contributes to the faster healing of intranasal wounds due to the action of salt.

Diseases such as flu and flu that people experience during the winter season can negatively affect the recovery process after nose surgery. The condition of dryness in the nose in winter is also one of the most complained about issues and dryness in the nose in summer in humid weather is minimal, if there are no problems, it does not happen at all.

Working people can take an annual leave from their workplace in the summer, and students who have turned 18 will take a break from school during the summer break. People who do not want to stay away from their work or school can have their nose surgeries done during the summer break.

Watch out for these in summer surgeries

After a successfully completed operation, the nose remains blocked for a certain time, the patient may have some difficulty breathing. This blockage will be corrected with salt water and frequent dressings that will be applied. Another issue that should be considered is sun protection. It is necessary to protect the detained areas of swelling and bruises that may occur at a minimum after surgery from direct sunlight for 2 months. This is a protection that can be easily applied. We recommend that those who have had surgery in the summer use wide-brimmed hats while in the sun and apply sunscreen with a protection factor of at least 30 to the lower areas of their eyes every half hour.

It will be beneficial for them to rest at home for up to a week after the operation. It is better if this environment is air-conditioned, that is, slightly cool. They can provide better breathing by washing their noses with plenty of salty water and cleaning the shells and the decks in their nose from time to time. A nose patient should stay away from using sunglasses for 2 months, no matter what season the nose surgery in Turkey is in.

After surgery, we recommend that you do not use glasses to prevent soft tissues in the nose from changing shape under the pressure of glasses.
