Rhinoplasty: The Technique to Beautify your Nose without Operating
Bump on the bridge of the nose, drooping tip, flat area between the eyebrows, flat nostrils ... We often find flaws in our nose. To correct these imperfections and beautify it, it is no longer compulsory to operate! Explanations.
Rhinoplasty or nose job is certainly the most requested intervention in the UK and Turkey..
It can be done in the operating room for surgical rhinoplasty, or, from now on, in the office when it comes to medical rhinoplasty.
A hollow at the level of the lion's wrinkle to fill, the tip of the nose to go up? In certain very specific cases, the doctor can intervene thanks to the injections.
Medical Rhinoplasty: A light and ephemeral intervention
This involves injecting fillers ( most often hyaluronic acid ) to correct slight abnormalities: Flatness between the eyes, asymmetry of the wings of the nose or even a sagging tip.
In practice: The operation takes place in an office, sometimes under local anesthesia (ointment or prick). The practitioner then injects the hyaluronic acid using a fine needle or a micro-cannula into the nose in contact with the cartilage or bone. He then reshapes the product with his finger to put the liquid in place correctly. You can follow the remodeling work in a mirror. The session lasts about 1/2 hour and can be done every year.
The result is visible immediately, even if there may be a slight edema or redness. We avoid for a day or two to press on the nose, to wear heavy spectacle frames so as not to move the product, and we avoid the sun for a fortnight.
How much does it cost in Turkey?
From 300 to 500 € depending on the amount of hyaluronic acid injected.
A technique that allows a glimpse of his "new nose"
If we fear ending up with a nose that we do not like, this technique based on injections allows us to give a first glimpse of what will be the new nose after a possible definitive surgery.
In all cases, for a rhinoplasty, the surgeon offers a computer morphing. It is a computer simulation of the expected result allowing one to get an idea in advance of the effects of the operation.
Surgical Rhinoplasty: Precise and Definitive
For minor defects (correcting thick points, "planning" our slight bump on the ridge), the surgeon goes inside the nose to reshape the bone and cartilage. All without leaving any scar.
For larger imperfections (prominent nose, ridge or deviated nasal septum) he makes a small horizontal incision at the level of the columella (under the upper lip) that he closes with threads most often absorbable and which will be invisible because hidden by the shadow of the nose.
In practice: The nose job operation takes place in the operating room, on an outpatient basis, after having had a prior visit with the anesthetist. The latter and the surgeon then opt for sedation (intravenous tranquilizer) or general anesthesia. The intervention lasts 40 minutes to 2 hours depending on the corrections to be made
The consequences: if the surgeon has "worked" on the bone, he puts a plaster on the nose, which he removes after eight days. You can then go home the same evening. The nose is swollen, especially in the eyelids, and bruising is possible, but the pain is mild. If the surgeon has inserted wicks or drains (which are removed on the second or third day), it may be difficult to breathe. After three weeks, we can already have a small preview of the result knowing that the nose is still swollen and that we can only appreciate the final result after six months to a year. Patience then!
How much does it cost?
Between 1000 and 5000 € depending on the work performed by the surgeon. If it is a "functional discomfort", such as a deviation of the partitions for example, the operation can be covered by the Health Insurance.
