What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, or nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure performed to correct and improve the shape and function of the nose. In this respect, rhinoplasty offers solutions for both aesthetic concerns and health problems. This operation gives the facial harmony and symmetry, while at the same time eliminating deformations that make breathing difficult.
Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic operation that takes about 2 hours under general anesthesia. Nose surgery is performed with two techniques, closed and open. Both techniques have their own unique advantages. The basic difference between the two techniques is the incision made under the nose. The operation performed by making an incision under the nose is called an open rhinoplasty. Closed rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure in which incisions are made from the inside of the nose.
In both nose aesthetic surgeries, the incision is made, but the location of the incision is different. Depending on this, the location of the existing suture mark also changes. This is why closed rhinoplasty is more commonly known as scar-free nose surgery.
With the development of technology today, rhinoplasty operations can be performed with much more successful results and the recovery process is much more comfortable.

Rhinoplasty surgery generally takes 1-3 hours depending on the surgical technique and the problem in the nose.
