Since the nasal skin, cartilage structure and nasal anatomy of each patient are different, rhinoplasty is a person-specific operation. Rhinoplasty can be performed on every healthy adult who has completed the age of 18. Recent scientific studies have revealed that rhinoplasty can also be performed at 14 to 15 years of age because the development of a person’s face and nose is considerably completed at these ages. The operation takes 1 to 3 hours, depending on the procedure and technique to be performed on the nose.
The most important step in a rhinoplasty operation is to evaluate the nose and plan the intended corrections in consultation with the patient. The proportional harmony between the nose and face, the structure of the nose, and the characteristics of the nasal skin are discussed during the planning process. On the other hand, septum deviation, the size of the concha and the status of the nasal valve are evaluated in terms of functionality.
On the other hand, designing the nose digitally allows for a better nose analysis. The nose image is transmitted to the computer by means of a digital camera, and then changes are made on the photos using the Alter image technology to obtain approximate image that will be achieved after the surgery.
