A rhinoplasty or “nose job” as it is known can give your nose a better-proportioned look. Rhinoplasty is also a way to help you breathe more easily by relieving nasal blockages. If you don’t like the shape of your nose, or if you have experienced an injury causing your nose to be broken or crooked. Dr.Deniz is an expert Rhinoplasty Surgeon who is very well experienced and well known for his perfect looking and perfect breathing noses.
Rhinoplasty lasts around 2 hours on average
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia
You can return to your daily activities in just 7-10 days
The patient stays one night in the hospital if the surgery was (70% of cases) performed under general anaesthesia.
Bruising (50%) and subconjunctival haematomas (dark circles around the eyes) (10%) may occur in cases in which we correct bony problems. In order to minimize this, we use ice packs for 24-48 hours postoperatively.
If osteotomies performed nasal cast must be used (stays on for 7 days). Generally, we insert nasal packing (made of a spongy substance which goes out easily) staying for 5 days which will also support the nose and prevent bleeding if you are travelling with plane. For nasal septum surgery we sometimes insert silicone stents which stays for 7-10 days. Open rhinoplasty patients will need to have their sutures removed on 7th day postoperatively.
Nasal swelling generally happens and recovers in time. Usually in the first month it is observed in all cases but resolves in an increasing rate in first 3 months. 6-12 months is needed to see that all swelling goes away.
