It is the most common aestetic operation in our country and in the world. The nose in the middle of our face is a remarkable organ of ours. According to a study, when people encounter each other, contrary to common belief, they primarily pay attention to their nose, not their eyes. However, this 1-2 second gaze occurs completely unconsciously.
WHAT KIND OF PROCEDURES CAN BE DONE IN NOSE AESTETICS?
On the other hand, the nose is the first place where the air carried to our lungs passes and the problems in this passage can affect all organs of the person. Under normal conditions, the air entering through the two nostrils is connected to both bronchus via the trachea and the air entering through the right nostril goes mostly to our right lung and the air entering through the left nostril goes mostly to the left lung. Based on this anatomical information, your nasal obstruction will affect the functioning of your organs such as the lungs and heart over time.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF NASAL CONGESTION? WHAT IS SEPTUM DEVIATION? HOW IS IT TREATED?
The curvature of the structure which is located in the midline of the nose, separating the two nostrils, consisting of cartilage in the front and bone in the back, is called “septum deviation”. This is one of the major breathing problems could be treated by surgical methods. It can be performed alone or together with rhinoplasty surgery.
Depending on the deviation;
– The inclined part can be removed,
– The inclined part can be repaired, it’s angle can be corrected,
– After the inclined part is removed, procedures such as cartilage grafts (patch) and reconstruction can be performed.
If you have septum deviation in your nose and want to change the shape of the nose at the same time, deviation and rhinoplasty surgery is one of the basic topic of the plastic and reconstructive surgery specialty.
This situation which we frequently encounter is the phenomenon of enlargement and swelling of the structure which is rich in blood walls normally located on both inner side walls of the nose, three on the right and left and obstruction of the respiratory tract. It is a condition that often accompanies deviation.
The treatment is based on the reduction of the swollen turbinates by radiofrequency method. In some cases it might be necessary to remove the conchal bone structures located underneath the mucose layer or changing it’s position.
WHEN SHOULD NOSE SURGERY BE PERFORMED?
Facial bone development is completed around the age of 18. Therefore, we generally do not recommend performing any nasal aesthetics before this age. However the age of surgery may be earlier in a situation that affects the health of our patient negatively and seriously such as advanced septum deviation which causing breathing problems.
WHAT ARE THE TECHNIQUES IN AESTHETIC NOSE SURGERY?
It can be divided into two techniques as open and closed.
About Open Rhinoplasty:
It is a surgical technique performed by reaching the area we call columella between the tip of the nose and the beginning of the lip with a small incision. Nasal tip shaping and intervention to bone protrusions are applied with this entrance.
About Closed Rhinoplasty:
It is the surgery performed by reaching these structures with the incision made from the area we call mucosa from the inner surface of the nose. There is no scar on the skin of the nose.
Both techniques have their own advantages and disadvantages.
