Pointing out that small nose is not always an advantage and may cause difficulty in breathing, Op.Dr. Hünkar Batıkhan said, "The ideal nose is the one that allows you to breathe correctly."
Contrary to what is thought, ENT Specialist Op.Dr. Hünkar Batıkhan said, “Those who have a small nose compared to their face, those who have a small nose tip, as if the nose tip is almost absent, and those who are thin as if the nose roof is pressed with a latch may face the problem of not being able to breathe well. Usually these patients come to us with the questions 'I cannot breathe well, I wonder if I have meat in my nose'. They never think that they have difficulty breathing due to the small nose. While the nasal dorsum of these patients should normally be a finger, it is half the thickness of the little finger. Therefore, in such patients, the nose is very low and there are short and narrow roofs. "It is like being stuck in a small house and it is necessary to expand the rooms of this house for breathing."
BEWARE IF BREATHING HARD!
Stating that although these patients with the middle part of the nose are very rare, those who have difficulty breathing in the small nose often do not know that the problem is caused by the size of the nose, Op.Dr. Batıkhan said, “Our patients who come to us with complaints of breathing and we decide that they need rhinoplasty after the examination are often confused by this. With rhinoplasty in these noses, the construction of lengthening in the middle part of the nose, widening the roof and reconstructing the tip of the nose begins. In other words, we enlarge the nose contrary to the procedure usually performed in these patients. Using our own cartilage we take from the back of the nose, we expand the back or roof. While doing this, it is not enough to correct the curvature in the middle part of the nose, it is necessary to lengthen the middle part of the nose, to extend the nose, to enlarge it, to widen the roof ”.
"YOU SHOULD NOT FORGET THE GOLDEN RATIO"
Underlining that the golden ratio of the face should not be forgotten while performing rhinoplasty operation on small noses, Op.Dr. Batıkhan said, “When applying rhinoplasty to small noses to restore their functions, one should not forget the golden ratio. During this operation, it is possible to give a suitable, golden ratio nose to the person's face. In addition to the problem of breathing; "The nose can be enlarged or widened with rhinoplasty in people whose nose is small to the face and cannot catch the golden ratio on the face."
