Nose Aesthetics is one of the most frequently performed operations in women and men. Ear Nose Throat and Head and Neck Surgery Specialist Op.Dr.Bahadır Baykal gave information about some points of interest in rhinoplasty.
Which nose is the best? Small, upturned and shapely?
When you look around you, you will see that many popular women or men have big noses. Their distinctive features may be noses. Big nose is never bad. If it gives a characteristic expression, I am in favor of not touching it.
The most common plastic surgery is rhinoplasty, but people are very afraid of it, what do you think is the reason for this?
Rhinoplasty is a very complex surgery. The nose is in the middle of the face and has an important task such as breathing. Poor surgery can cause problems that are difficult to compensate. Aesthetic problems can be seen by everyone, and correction surgeries are also very difficult. Therefore, people may hesitate to have surgery. If you have decided to have surgery Preferring doctors who are specialized in rhinoplasty will greatly reduce the risk.
Is it wrong to shrink the nose? Should we infer that from what you said?
No, we reduce it when necessary, but rhinoplasty should not be seen as a mere reduction surgery. According to the structure of the nose, some parts can be reduced and some parts can be enlarged, so it is necessary to make a kind of balancing. Nasal congestion develops later in oversized noses. Balancing is important for more natural and functional results.
How do you think a successful surgery should be defined?
In my opinion, the breathing function of the nose should be preserved, if there is congestion, this problem should be eliminated. Cosmetically, the proportion-harmony between the nose and facial structures should be ensured. There should be maximum harmony between the nose wings, the back of the nose and the tip of the nose. For this purpose, correction procedures can be performed on the chin, forehead, cheeks and even lips in the same session.
Should different planning be done according to gender while performing rhinoplasty? For example, what do you pay attention to in men?
Of course, different principles apply to men and women. Men should not have a feminine look. It is not nice to have a hollow nose, especially the back of the nose. The back of the nose should be straight and sometimes even a very slight arch should be left in men, so that we can achieve a more natural stance.
What would you recommend to patients who have to have nose surgery for the second or third time? What is your approach to these patients?
Secondary rhinoplasty, also known as corrective rhinoplasty, is an operation that requires a lot of experience and skill compared to the first. Most of the time, we need to take cartilage tissue from the rib or ear area to reconstruct the nose. As you can appreciate, it takes longer than normal. I think the most important thing for patients to do in this process should be to try to find a qualified doctor who can do their surgery and is only focused on nose surgeries. The right choices have happy results. brings with it.
