Negative Misconceptions About Rhinoplasty

Plastic surgeries are much more affordable in Turkey compared to Europe; That’s why thousands of patients from Europe come to Turkey for rhinoplasty surgery every year.
- “Everybody will notice that I had a nose surgery.”
When a nose surgery is conducted by an experienced surgeon using procedures appropriate for anatomical principles, highly natural results are created and the operation is nearly undetectable by the patient’s surroundings.

After a nose surgery performed with the right technique, the nose is not expected to drop much at the tip of the nose. A decrease of 2-3 degrees occurs after all nasal surgeries, but no further than that
- “I’ll have to have the surgery done again.”
When proper techniques are employed in nose surgeries, the necessity for reoperation is drastically minimized. However, if persons with excessively thick skin, weak cartilage structure, and patients with certain axis curvatures have unrealistic expectations, the rate of revision nasal surgery may rise.
These issues, however, may not improve with a second or third surgery. Such patients should be aware of the risks involved before undergoing surgery, and they should make an informed decision.

- “Non-surgical rhinoplasty is not that effective”
Nasal correction techniques using fillers, commonly known as non-surgical rhinoplasty, have a transitory impact and can only be successful in a small number of nasal components.
As a result, if the individual to be filled with the nose is carefully selected, the outcome may be successful.

Nasal filling is a quick, 10-minute treatment that can be completed in the office. It is, however, not for everyone. Patients with a broad nose, axis deviation, a high radix, or a very low nasal tip should avoid filling injections.
Patients with a slight nasal arch, low or moderate nasal tip, a straight nasal axis, a low nasal radix area (nasal root), and a medium or low volume nasal structure can reach good nasal results. However, these effects only endure 8 months to 1.5 years until the nose returns to its former state.
