Rhinoplasty (Nose Cosmetic) Rhinoplasty (Nose Cosmetic) Surgery is a type of plastic surgery performed to reshape any disfiguration in the nose. Viewing the nose as a whole, its vital breathing function should also be taken into consideration as well as its appearance. Therefore, rhinoplasty operations also correct bone and cartilage irregularities obstructing the patient’s breathing (deviation surgery). In other words, achieving a functionally breathable nose is as important as achieving an aesthetically pleasing one in rhinoplasty operations. According to patient need, rhinoplasty operations are grouped under two techniques: open and closed rhinoplasty operations. In open rhinoplasty an incision is made on the skin in the middle of the nostrils, also known as columella, then all the connective tissues and soft tissues underneath are lifted and all interventions are performed while the dermis is held open. Open rhinoplasty surgery has a probability of scarring; however, these marks are almost invisible. In closed rhinoplasty the skin on middle line of the nose is not incised. All interventions are performed through the skin on the internal surface of the nose, the mucosa tissue. All connective and soft tissues of the nose are maintained since the operation takes places under the nose membrane. Our surgeons who perform these surgeries are very successful and experienced in both techniques.
