Before discussing the procedure for Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery at Hayatmed in Turkey, we are going to discuss what a rhinoplasty is and what it is for.
What is a rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty also called nose surgery is a surgical procedure whose objective is to modify the nose , either for aesthetic reasons such as to be able to correct some deformities that do not allow the patient to breathe adequately. It is also used to correct birth defects and also to rebuild the nose in the event of an accident.
The benefits of Rhinoplasty are fundamentally aesthetic and functional. These two aspects of nose surgery are closely related to each other, so when considering an aesthetic change it is necessary to take into account if it can cause respiratory problems in the future.
Aesthetic benefits of rhinoplasty:
improve your appearance
modify the size, width and shape of the nose
correct the profile, eliminating humps or depressions in the bridge
change the shape of the nasal tip
change the angles of the nose
modify the size and position of the nostrils
soften the typical nuances of the nose of each ethnic group
correct typical age impairments
Despite the possibilities that rhinoplasty offers on an aesthetic level, it is essential to find the nose that best adapts to the other features, maintaining naturalness and harmony.
Procedure for Rhinoplasty:
At Hayatmed, During the 1st consultation, plastic surgeons specializing in rhinoplasty, will evaluate:
The shape, size, symmetry and other aesthetic and functional characteristics of your nose.
The reasons or motives that drive you to want to undergo rhinoplasty surgery.
The results you hope to achieve with cosmetic and / or functional nasal surgery.
We will perform a complete nose examination to assess your general health and any pre-existing conditions or risk factors.
We will also talk about possible allergies to any medications, interventions or previous medical interventions or treatments, the medications you may be currently taking, as well as habits such as alcohol and tobacco.
Tobacco can complicate the results of surgery, so you should agree with our surgeons to reduce your consumption a few weeks before and after the intervention.
There are medications that reduce blood clotting capacity, for example aspirin, so you should inform your doctor about their consumption and eliminate them from your treatment.
The surgeon will explain what the postoperative care for rhinoplasty is, as well as the recovery times and a forecast of when you will be able to return to work (between 1 and 2 weeks), and to the usual personal and sports activities (3 – 4 weeks).
He will explain the risks and possible complications, and will give you the informed consent sheets for you to read and sign. Visit our clinic today for a nose job in Turkey or call us for further information.

This price will include the costs of the operating room and hospitalization, if necessary, the fees for the surgical and anesthesia team.

Characteristics of the intervention
It is performed under general anesthesia, and on many occasions with local anesthesia accompanied by deep sedation.
It lasts about 1 or 2 hours.
It does not require prolonged hospital admission (a few hours or one night ).
The incisions can be made inside the nose (closed rhinoplasty), or hidden in inconspicuous places when an open rhinoplasty is performed.
If necessary, the internal nasal septum is also intervened.
At the end of the intervention a moldable protection or splint is placed to protect the nose, and it should be worn for a week.
Small nasal plugs, which are removed within 24 hours in most cases, complete the procedure.
Postoperative and recovery of the rhino or Septoplasty
You can go home and take analgesics to control the moderate postoperative pain for a few days, although it is not a usually painful surgery.
Nasal packing will be removed before discharge from hospital or within 24-28 hours at Hayatmed.
You will rest during the first days and you should avoid great efforts.
The postoperative period runs with possible discomfort due to inflammation, bruising or a feeling of tightness. You can apply local cold through ice packs, take anti-inflammatories, and use cosmetics to hide bruises.
You will sleep with your head somewhat elevated. The nasal protection is removed after 7 days , as well as the skin sutures, if any.
In the following weeks, you will have to go to the clinic on several occasions. During these visits, Our surgeon and his team will monitor the appropriate postoperative evolution and will personally answer all your questions and observations.
You will also have at your disposal a contact telephone number for any urgent need.
Respiration returns to normal within 3-4 weeks. The nose remains harder than normal for a few months, but becomes soft and sensitive again after 6 – 8 months, which will depend on your skin type. The final result is obtained after approximately 10-15 months, requiring several follow-up visits throughout the recovery period. The duration of the result is permanent.
Rhinoplasty by Hayat Med surgeons is a technique that provides a remarkable improvement in appearance and beauty, with a quick recovery and with an almost total absence of scars.
