It can be said that rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most widely applied plastic surgery operations around the world by considering that this procedure can be carried out on both male and female patients.

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery intervention that has different techniques and different consequences. Plastic surgeon plans the operation with the most suitable technique and approach according to the facial anatomy of the patient. The surgeon makes and implements this by making drawings and using the photos of the patient or during the operation.

The most feared part of the rhinoplasty surgeries is the removal of nasal packing and bruises around the eyes after the surgery. The occurrence of these problems within the first few days has been reduced significantly with the use of the new materials and development of the atraumatic techniques.

Irrespective of whichever technique is used, the purpose of rhinoplasties is to give patients a natural nose that is suitable for the facial anatomy and that ensures breathing function. Due to exaggerated requests, a nose that is raised excessively and reduced too much when compared to face brings failure rather than success. If it is considered that the surgeon gives shape to cartilage bone and soft tissue, it should be known that it is impossible to make nose based on drawings and photos of other people. Plastic surgeon specifically plans and implements the best and the most aesthetical nose for his/her patients.

The occurrence of edema-swellings in and around the nose should be taken as normal after the operation. Such edema reduces fully in the first 3 months and the nose takes its final shape after 6 months. It should be known that the complaints of patients about their nose shape before such periods of time are temporary.
