Frequently asked questions

What should be my diet prior to rhinoplasty?


In the weeks before any surgery, it is important to make a healthy diet for patients. Proper nutrition will accelerate healing and minimize the risk of infection. In particular, individuals should eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein.




Should I tell you about the medicines I am using?


When preparing for rhinoplasty, patients should tell their doctor about all the medications they use at the time. Some medications can cause problems before or after surgery. The doctor may temporarily discontinue use of a patient’s drug or suggest a safer alternative.




Is smoking allowed?


Tobacco use slows blood flow throughout the body. Because oxygen cannot reach the incision sites very quickly, smokers may experience a longer recovery period, a higher risk of infection, and a negative scar. You should stop smoking at least 2 weeks before the operation.




Can I drink alcohol?


Because alcohol can affect the ability of the liver to be metabolized, many doctors recommend that patients do not drink during the weeks prior to surgery.




Nose Aesthetics Process


Anesthesia
Because there are many rhinoplasty and different treatment goals, the procedure is very variable for each person. However, there are some steps common to all nasal reshaping surgeries. Anesthesiologists perform rhinoplasty using one of two sedation methods: General anesthesia: A general anesthetic applied by a mask or IV puts patients in a complete sleep state.
IV Sedation
The doctor anesthetizes your face with local anesthesia and applies a powerful intravenous sedative. The patient experiences a hatır twilight sleep kayb and remembers little about surgery when the drug disappears. Doctors work with the patient to determine the best anesthesia for their needs. Both methods do not cause discomfort during surgery. However, some people may experience less concern knowing that they will pass completely asleep. Surgical Operation
After anesthesia, the surgeon creates small cuts in the nostrils. It then carefully lifts the skin to reach the underlying bone and cartilage. The surgeon can remove the tissues when necessary. Typically, a physician uses conservative methods to minimize the impact on surrounding tissues while achieving the desired results. When the reshaping is completed, the doctor puts the skin back on the new contours of the nose and closes the cuts. Buffer
In the first days after rhinoplasty, it is important to protect the changes in the nasal tissue. After closing the incisions made during surgery, the surgeon places the splint to help protect the nose. In some cases, your doctor may also put gauze patches or nose pads in the nostrils. This material will help to reduce bleeding and keep the septum in place. The gauze may cause some discomfort. However, it is usually removed a few days after surgery and can be used for long-term use to protect the results of surgery.




How is the pain?


Mild or moderate pain and discomfort should be expected with nasal surgery. This is easily controlled by oral medications. Discomfort and pain should begin to decrease within 72 hours after surgery. It is recommended to call your doctor if there is a significant increase in pain after this time. Bruising and swelling after nasal surgery is not unusual. These symptoms usually worsen on the second day after the operation, and then recover regularly; it’s normal. The amount of bruising that is occurring varies greatly from one person to another. If only the septum and / or nasal tip are operated, a mild bruising is expected.




When can I return to work?


Most patients feel ready to return to work or school after 1 or 2 weeks depending on the level of activity required. Typically 3 weeks later, most normal contactless activities can be sustained.
