Our nose is one of the most important parts of the respiratory system. A nose that cannot breathe is not healthy, no matter how beautiful it looks. This problem in the respiratory system is caused by deformities in the septum area. Patients who have only breathing problems can get rid of the boredom they experience with Septoplasty.
The way to get rid of breathing problems and have a more beautiful nose in an aesthetic sense is through Septorhinoplasty.
In Septorhinoplasty operations, problems such as deviated septum, polyp, nasal flesh that negatively affect breathing in our nose are intervened and corrected and the problem is fixed. During the same operation, the cartilage, soft tissue and bone structure that make up our nose are reshaped. Aesthetic changes are also successfully performed while breathing problems are eliminated by Septorhinoplasty surgery.
WHO CAN GET SEPTORHINOPLASTY?
- Patients over the age of 18 who have breathing problems in their nose.
- Patients in the child age group are also operated on if necessary.
NASAL CARTILAGE CURVATURE / / AFTER SURGERY
HOW IS SEPTORHINOPLASTY PERFORMED?
During the operation, the curved parts of the bone and cartilage are corrected. Parts that are too curved to be corrected are removed. Sometimes some of these cartilage removed is corrected and replaced. Nasal septum deviation is usually seen in patients with nasal flesh swelling. During surgery, the flesh of the nose is evaluated. If necessary, the lower conchae are reduced.
DOES THE SHAPE OF THE NOSE CHANGE AFTER SEPTORHINOPLASTY?
After Septoplasty operations, there are no changes in the shape of the nose, but in patients undergoing Septorhinoplasty operations, there is a change in the shape of the nose.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RHINOPLASTY AND SEPTORHINOPLASTY OPERATIONS?
Rhinoplasty is an operation to change the structure, tissue and appearance of the nose. At the end of these operations, the appearance of the nose is improved, while breathing is also corrected. Septorhinoplasty, on the other hand, is the process of regulating the cartilage and bone structure that separates the nasal septum, that is, the inner part of the nose, to breathe.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SEPTORHINOPLASTY?
- Depending on the patient’s condition, they are discharged on the same day.
- Facial pain, edema, and bruising are less.
- If a perforated silicone splint that allows breathing through the nose is used, it is removed on the fifth day.
- On the fifth day, plastic splints are removed.
- After 2 weeks, light-paced exercises can be started, and after 6 weeks, heavy-paced exercises can be started.
- The nose gets its true shape at the end of 6 months.
