What is a septorhinoplasty?

Do you often have dry mouth? Do you snore? When you try to breathe through your nose, do you find it difficult or simply impossible? If so, you may need a nose job, and more specifically a septorhinoplasty.

Septorhinoplasty involves repairing both your nose (also known as rhinoplasty) and your septum (also known as septoplasty). The septum is the small wall of tissue that separates your nostrils.

A septorhinoplasty may be necessary if the septum is atypically displaced, i.e. if it is deviated. You may be wondering what a deviated septum means, i.e. when the wall of the septum inside your nose is bent or curved, preventing some of the air from passing through.

A septorhinoplasty may also be necessary if your nose is disfigured due to an injury, such as trauma. People who want a more attractive nose can also undergo this operation. You can also undergo this operation to correct problems associated with previous nose surgery. With septorhinoplasty, you’ll be able to breathe easier and have a more attractive nose.

Septorhinoplasty techniques

There are two approaches to septorhinoplasty in Turkey;

  • An open approach: Open septorhinoplasty in Turkey is generally performed so that the doctor at the clinical centre can access the area to be operated on more easily. In the open approach, an incision across the width of the columella is made and the skin is lifted, so there is greater visibility and greater perfection. This approach has many advantages because the surgeon can access the entire structure of the nose, including the nasal tip. This approach is frequently required in revision septorhinoplasty to correct surgical errors or other aesthetic or structural problems. This approach can also be used for patients who require more extensive reconstruction of the nose.
  • Closed approach: This is usually done by entering the areas to be modified from the inside of the nostril. A closed septorhinoplasty may be suitable for small corrections and modifications. This approach is less invasive, which means less healing time and less swelling. As the incisions are made inside the nostrils, there will be no visible scarring. Closed septorhinoplasty is generally performed on patients who only require a small reconstruction of the tip of the nose.

Recovery from septorhinoplasty

During the recovery period from septorhinoplasty, the patient will need to be patient as it will be slow and demanding. Immediately after a septorhinoplasty in Istanbul, the patient will wake up with a nasal splint glued to the nose and, depending on the technique used by the doctor, a nasal tampon will most likely be placed inside.

Three days after closed septorhinoplasty or open septorhinoplasty, it is normal for patients to feel some pain. Bruising and swelling are also very normal during the early recovery period from septorhinoplasty. Most bruising and swelling disappears within the first month, but it takes about a year for patients to fully recover from septorhinoplasty.

The clinic doctor may ask you to follow certain instructions for several weeks after the operation to reduce the risk of bleeding and swelling. Depending on the difficulty of the operation, the patient may not need all of these instructions:

  • When you sleep, sleep with 2 or 3 pillows so that your head is elevated.
  • For several weeks after septorhinoplasty, patients are not allowed to blow their nose.
  • Wear clothes that meet at the front like a zip or button; do not wear clothes such as shirts, jumpers or hoodies that you have to pull over your head.
  • Three weeks after the operation, bruising and swelling should diminish.
  • Up to five weeks, to avoid causing a nosebleed. Avoid strenuous activities such as aerobics and jogging.
  • 4 to 6 weeks later, patients may begin strenuous activities.

Results of septorhinoplasty:

3 to 6 months after septorhinoplasty, the result will start to show :). It is always possible for the cartilage and material to shift or remodel over time. Various changes may still occur for a year or more after septorhinoplasty in Turkey.

Most patients find that the septorhinoplasty procedure helps to relieve symptoms such as breathing difficulties caused by a deviated septum. The amount of improvement a patient can expect with septorhinoplasty varies from person to person.

Some patients may find that they still have symptoms even after the operation and choose to have a second septorhinoplasty to further improve their nose and septum.

Turkey has become a very popular country because of the affordable prices of plastic surgery and because Turkish plastic surgeons are very experienced in what they do. When patients compare the price of the septorhinoplasty procedure with that in their own country, they realise that it is very affordable in Turkey and that the quality of the doctors is very high. So it’s a win-win situation. Because the patients who come here are operated on by us, the results they get from procedures like septorhinoplasty will look natural.
