Frequently Asked Questions
What is Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)?
Rhinoplasty (nose job) is an operation performed to change the outer shape of the nose. During this rhinoplasty (nose job) surgery, the cartilages and bones of the nose can be shaped and the nose can be finalized. Apart from this, bone, cartilage and flesh growths that prevent us from breathing in the nose or cause some diseases can also be handled during the same operation.
Is Rhinoplasty a Painful Procedure?
Contrary to common belief, rhinoplasty rhinoplasty (nose job) is not a painful procedure. I can explain this as follows; 98 out of 100 patients do not complain of any pain discomfort when we ask our patients who we have operated on if they have pain after surgery. These should not be confused with pain. This may feel tight, but never causes serious pain. This problem can be easily overcome with simple painkillers to be taken after the operation.
What are the Duties of the Patient in the Preparation Process of Rhinoplasty?
Finding the right physician is the most important duty of the patient in the preparation process of rhinoplasty. The patient should find a physician who can ask all kinds of questions that he / she can feel comfortable with and get good explanations for the questions he / she asks.
Communication is the head of everything, the patient should share what he wants with his doctor, his concerns about his nose, his concerns and fears. Then, the patient should go through a preparation process with the physician and during this preparation process, the patient should inform the physician very well about the nasal shapes he likes, which is an operation and the patient should give very accurate information to the physician about the diseases, surgeries, medications and allergies he has had until that day.
In the light of this information, whether he is suitable for surgery or precautions to be taken before is planned.After the surgery is planned, the patient should not use blood thinners (aspirin comes first) and some heavy cutters approximately 10 days before the surgery is planned. Apart from this, he should not use vitamins that contain substances such as linkoblogs and insens that we do not like.
However, he should not consume ginger-type foods, which are frequently used in recent years. Should I quit smoking, the most frequently asked question before surgery? should i not quit Of course, smoking is always a substance that has an adverse effect on our health, but smoking has an effect on two very important issues for surgeries, the first worsens the wound healing, and the second causes the anesthesia you will take to become more risky.Therefore, we recommend that you quit smoking about a week before the surgery.
Regarding alcohol, you should stop drinking alcohol three days before surgery. We recommend that our patients take a bath the night before the surgery. If the surgery is to take place the next morning, we recommend that they do not eat or drink anything after 12 o’clock at night and come to the hospital hungry. If our patient pays attention to these issues, he will have a healthy surgical process.
How Should the Patient Be Moved After Rhinoplasty?
In the period after the operation, ice application comes about the issues that our patient should pay attention to. An hourly 15-20 minutes of ice application should be applied all night.
We see that our most common patient feels more psychologically ill by lying down here, we do not want this, we want him to continue his daily activities at home, we want the medicines we give to be used properly and correctly. They can start bathing one week after the surgery. Patients can switch to their normal diet the day after surgery.
On the other hand, we recommend not to do heavy work and exercise for up to three weeks after the operation. Smoking should not be resumed immediately, however, the patient should not consume alcohol for three weeks. In addition, we do not want our patients to get the sun for two to three months for swelling and bruises under the eyes. Hats or sunscreens can be used for this.
Can Bone Curvature in the Nose Be Eliminated Without Surgery?
Bone curvatures in the nose are divided into two. Bone curves inside the nose and nasal curves outside the nose. Nasal curvatures in the nose that prevent us from breathing cannot be corrected without surgery. If you have difficulty breathing and this is due to nasal curvature, you should definitely have surgery. However, if the bone curvature outside the nose is very mild, it can be easily camouflaged and made less visible with filling methods. However, if the bone curvature outside the nose is very severe, you should still prefer surgery.
What is Liplift and Is It a Painful Procedure?
Some of our patients complain that their upper lips are thin. However, another issue they do not pay attention to is that the skin under our nose and above our lips is long.When this skin is long and our lip is thin, this area can be shortened a little from this skin under the nose.
This process can also make your upper lip look thicker and fuller. can provide. Liplift can provide very happy results in thickening the upper lips and shortening the upper lip skin of our patients with such problems.Lip lift (Liplift) is generally not a painful procedure. However, since it is a small incision under your nose, it may cause mild pain. After the operation, you will feel a swelling due to the tension in this area.
However, after the surgery, when you have these complaints, when medications that will relieve swelling and edema and reduce pain are used, this mild pain does not cause any problems and you can have a very comfortable operation process. We can say that he can return to their normal lives during the day.
Who Can Have Lip Lift Surgery?
Since Liplift is a procedure that can be performed under both local and general anesthesia, even our patients with serious health problems can have the liplift procedure.
Generally, we prefer this procedure for patients with long skin above the upper lip.
If our male and female patients prefer this surgery, they can be easily. The surgery does not have any age limit. However, in aesthetic operations, we generally recommend them to be after the age of 17.
What is Jaw Aesthetics (Mentoplasty)? Is There an Ideal Age Range for This Procedure?
Jaw aesthetic surgery (Mentoplasty) is a surgery that we generally recommend to our patients whose jaws are behind when viewed from the profile.
It can be done with a variety of techniques. The first is to place the materials we call implants under the skin of the chin. The second is to fill this area with some permanent and temporary filling methods.
Thirdly, by advancing your jaw bone forward, our jaws can be made to look fuller and fuller. The ideal age range for mentoplasty surgery is after the age of 17 for girls and 18 for boys.
Can Anyone Can Have Chin Aesthetics?
If there is no serious health problem, anyone who is not pregnant can have the chin aesthetic (mentoplasty) surgery. The age range is 17 for girls and 18 for boys.
Can Children Also Have Prominent Ear Aesthetics?
Prominent ear aesthetics can easily be applied to children after the age of 6. In fact, prominent ear surgery should be performed after the age of 6-7 years.
The reason for this is the primary school years when children are making fun of each other while communicating with each other. If we have patients between the ages of 6-7 who have not undergone this surgery and who complain of prominent earphones, they do not have to worry about anything.
If their health conditions are suitable, they can have this surgery even at the age of 50-60. However, it should not be thought that they are late for this surgery at the age of 20-30. They can peacefully enjoy their new ears.
What are the Conditions that Trigger Sinusitis?
Conditions that trigger sinusitis are primarily affected by structural changes in our nose. If there are some bone curvatures and flesh growths in our nose, it will trigger sinusitis.
Again, some congenital anatomical conditions that narrow the mouth of the sinuses trigger sinusitis. Apart from this, it is one of the conditions that triggers sinusitis. Also, allergic conditions trigger sinusitis severely.
All of these need to be controlled. In addition, smoking is one of the most important conditions that trigger sinusitis. We can see sinusitis very often in people who do not smoke, but who are exposed to cigarette smoke too much.
Is Permanent Treatment Possible for Sinusitis?
Permanent treatment of sinusitis is possible. We can prevent sinusitis with the medical treatments and some allergy treatments that we will do first.
However, when these are not effective, the sinusitis surgery will help you get rid of sinusitis permanently. If care is not taken, sinusitis can recur and we may not be able to achieve an effective success as a result of our surgery.
What is Bone Formation (Otosclerosis) in the Middle Ear? Who Is It Appeared?
Otosclerosis is an ear disease that causes hearing loss in the ear. It manifests itself as calcification in the middle ear, in the ossicles behind the eardrum, and in some specific areas.
It has symptoms such as hearing loss and tinnitus. Otosclerosis can be seen in men and women. But it is a disease that is more common in women. It is a disease that can occur from early adulthood to the age of 40s.
What is Ear Cleaning, Is There Any Damage?
One of the most frequently asked questions to us is about ear cleaning. Ear cleaning is not harmful. If an ear is very dirty and the ear canal is blocked and sound transmission is blocked, it is necessary to clean the eardrum. In fact, this dirt is produced in the ear canal of all people. However, this dirt is removed by the special cleaning mechanism of the ear.
But in some people, because this mechanism is broken, it can accumulate in the ear. The biggest concern of patients is that after cleaning the ear, does this dirt repeat more intensively? Actually, such a thing is not possible. Since the earwax is cleaned, it does not form intensively again. Such people should go to a check every 6 months and have their ears cleaned.
However, people who do not have ear congestion do not need to be cleaned. Again, one of the best answers to this question is, if your sink is clogged, is it harmful to open it? If that sink doesn’t open, you won’t be able to use your sink.
If you don’t open it in your ear, you won’t be able to use your ear. Therefore, ear cleaning has no harm. In order to eliminate the hearing loss, you must have it cleaned. However, if there is no blockage, there is no need for cleaning.
