Foreword: This section is designed to inform patients that decide rhinoplasty operation for nasal deformities affecting nasal functions. It does not include commercial referrals.
Rhinoplasty is a very delicate operation that seems easy, but is affected by many variables. The aim should not be to achieve a uniform stereotypical nose structure. It is necessary to analyze the wishes of the person who will use the nose very well and to make sure that a full compliance is achieved before the operation. If the patient doctor cannot agree in terms of spiritual and pleasure, both parties should know how to withdraw from this work.
Many of the patients who want to have rhinoplasty also have problems with breathing. As clearly described in the sinusitis section, breathing surgery is a difficult surgery due to very small balances. Issues such as "I burned the meat" "I fixed the bone" are open to debate and can be harmful if not well reasoned. Therefore, care should be taken when placing a partial intervention indication such as a simple procedure. Because rhinoplasty is an operation that is expected to narrow the nasal air passage by its nature.
The patient who wants rhinoplasty should think very well and make a clear decision and apply to the doctor accordingly. Mostly, social pressure or indecisive personality may experience regret after the operation, and may experience problems such as I wish I had been smaller or raised.
Closed technique should be preferred if possible. This means less tissue elevation, meaning less trauma. Therefore, the healing is faster and unproblematic in the closed and less invasive technique. In cases where the closed technique is not possible or if needed, it is possible to easily return to the open technique during the operation.
Aesthetic nose surgery becomes much more important in patients with breathing problems. Breathing is actually the most important part of the job. It should be emphasized that having a straight nasal bone is not sufficient for efficient breathing on its own. After the air enters the nose and does not pass through the sinuses and activate the reflex system, it is no different from mouth breathing. Some studies have shown that if nose breathing is correct, it creates a 40% increase in efficiency compared to mouth breathing.
To summarize, rhinoplasty is an operation that includes many variables. If a simple intervention is accepted as it is intended to be launched, permanent functional and aesthetic risks may occur. The subject should be mutually understood in all aspects and the work should be started later.
