Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery Specialist Op.Dr.Bahadır Baykal, Rhinoplasty is a very common operation in our country and in the world. But there are some well-known mistakes about this operation!
Nose surgery brings with it the results of facial plastic surgery, as it improves and improves the general facial appearance of people. At the same time, it allows the correction of problems such as deviation caused by the nose structure of the person and the healthy functioning of the nose functions.
Although rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic surgery procedures, many myths about rhinoplasty procedures are circulating among the public.
These misconceptions and judgments are as follows:
1. Rhinoplasty is a very simple operation.
Rhinoplasty is a very common procedure. And contrary to popular belief, it is a rather complicated and difficult procedure. Therefore, for a successful result of rhinoplasty, you should make sure that your doctor allocates the necessary time and resources for you. A surgeon who has a good understanding of the anatomical structure of the nose and has a correct aesthetic understanding will evaluate the nasal bone and cartilage structure and skin thickness before the operation and will perform a safe and effective treatment plan.
2. Every ENT or Plastic Surgeon can perform rhinoplasty.
When it comes to rhinoplasty, it is very important for a good surgeon to perform the procedure. As mentioned earlier, rhinoplasty is a very complex procedure and should be performed by an experienced and skilled surgeon in order to obtain the best possible results and prevent unwanted complications that require revision surgery.
3. A nose that has undergone rhinoplasty does not look natural.
The purpose of rhinoplasty is to improve the appearance of the nose and create a more balanced face. As long as you do not move away from this principle, the result will of course be natural and closest to the natural, depending on the doctor's skill and experience. At this point, it is very important for patients to cooperate with their doctors in their journey of rhinoplasty, to express their expectations correctly and to be open about the reality of their expectations.
4. Rhinoplasty is a painful operation.
Most of our patients are quite surprised to realize that they do not feel as much pain and pain as they expected after rhinoplasty. Slight swelling and bruises on the nose after surgery will subside within a maximum of 10 days.
5. I can choose the nose I want for rhinoplasty.
We come across many patients who want to have the same nose as their favorite singer or movie artist. However, each nose is unique in itself. And a nose that looks very good on one person may not look good on another person. This is because everyone's facial features are different from each other. Therefore, a separate surgical plan should be designed and implemented for each patient. this n
Of course, we, the doctors, need to be sure about how realistic the expectations of the patients are at Oktada.
