Rhinoplasty Procedure

The surgery can take from one to three hours and is performed under general anesthesia, local anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Incisions are made either in the area between the nostrils or inside the nose. The skin covering the nose is raised and the bone and cartilage reshaped according to the desired outcome. In some cases cartilage grafts obtained from the septum, ear or rib cartilage are added.
Patient profile
Rhinoplasty is usually sought by patients seeking to improve the appearance of their nose or correct any defects in structure which might impair normal functioning, most often by obstructing the breathing. One of the most common causes for this is a deviated septum, which can be corrected through nose surgery.
You should be healthy, have a fully developed face and ideally a nonsmoker in order to have a nose surgery.

Rhinoplasty Costs

Costs of rhinoplasty can vary widely according to the surgeon’s experience and the exact type of procedure. Costs of nose surgery in Turkey, along with many other cosmetic procedures, are much lower compared to Europe and the US.
Insurance usually covers the costs of nose surgery only when it is considered reconstructive, i.e. not performed exclusively for cosmetic purposes but for alleviating any form of impairment.
Always inquire about the full price which takes into account not only the price of surgery, but additional costs such as anesthesia fees, operating room facilities and hospital costs, examinations, second procedure cost if necessary, etc.

During rhinoplasty consultations, the following is discussed: surgical goals; medical history; substances used currently, including medications, supplements, alcohol, drugs and tobacco; current health status; the expected outcome; postoperative care and potential complications.
The face is examined and measured. Photographs are taken and options for the nose surgery are discussed, after which the surgeon recommends an appropriate course of treatment.
It is advised to make full use of the consultation appointment in order to make as informed of a decision as possible. It is important for the success of the nose surgery to honestly answer to all of the surgeon’s inquiries and openly ask about anything requiring clarification.

Before the surgery

The following might be asked of you before having your rhinoplasty:

  • Getting tests for medical evaluation
  • Abstaining from nicotine
  • Abstaining from aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements
  • Taking specific medications or adjusting current medication

Postoperative care & recovery

After the surgery, a nasal splint or packing can be placed inside the nose and a splint or bandages are placed over the nose as it heals. You are instructed on how to handle the treated area and what medication to use for healing.
Any form of physical straining should be avoided for three to six weeks after your rhinoplasty.
Two to three weeks are needed in most cases to return to normal activities without any conspicuous signs of having had the surgery. The results of the nose surgery are noticeable immediately after the first few weeks during which the swelling goes down, but up to a year is needed for the final results.
Swelling might continue to reoccur periodically during the first year after the nose surgery.
It is advised to make inquires with your surgeon concerning the period immediately after the rhinoplasty and during recovery. You may have questions about where you will be placed after the surgery, what medications you will be given, and when to arrange an appointment for follow-up care.


In some cases, multiple surgeries are needed for the best results.
The results of rhinoplasty are permanent, but can be influenced by aging. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and using sun protection are recommended in order to preserve the results of your nose surgery.
