My rhinoplasty experience in Turkey

Finally, I got the shape of my nose that I have always wanted. Here in this article, I would be more than happy to share my experience with rhinoplasty in Turkey with you from the very beginning until six months after my surgery. I hope my experience will be helpful for you if you are interested in rhinoplasty.

How was my nose appearance before the operation?

  • I was not satisfied with the shape of my nose. I used to have an enlarged tip and slight bump on my nose which had hidden its beauty.
  • I knew that my surgery would be simple since I did not suffer that big problem with my nose. So I decided to consult a plastic doctor about it.
  • I visited a plastic surgeon where I live and we started a long conversation about all available options which might be appropriate for me.
  • Indeed, I had no intention to perform my rhinoplasty here in my country due to the high costs, so I began searching for good clinics in countries where they offer good quality services at competitive prices.

Why did I choose Turkey for rhinoplasty?

  • Frankly, Turkey was one of my suggested options to perform my rhinoplasty for two reasons.
  •  First, my friend who did rhinoplasty in Turkey and got wonderful results advised me to visit it to perform rhinoplasty.
  • Also, Turkey was very suitable for me since they offer full package services that include hotel accommodation, transportation, and translation at very competitive prices compared to my country.
  • Finally, I made my decision to go to Turkey and start my new journey with rhinoplasty.

How did I plan my rhinoplasty operation?

  • Once I decided to visit Turkey, I contacted the same clinic in which my friend had done his rhinoplasty.
  • During the online medical consultation which they offered me for free, I sent them my photos so that they could examine my nose and make tweaks to my nose using special software.
  • By this program, they could show me the planned new shape of my nose after the operation. I liked it, so I booked my appointment immediately and I traveled to Turkey after a couple of days.

What type of rhinoplasty did I perform?

  • As I said my nose needed small changes, which are eliminating the humps over the bridge of my nose, besides reshaping the nasal tip.
  • All these changes could be done through closed rhinoplasty which can reshape the structure of the nose through incisions made inside the nostril.
  • My closed rhinoplasty was done under general anesthesia. The doctor shaved down those humps and reshaped the nasal tip by removing some cartilage, giving me a more attractive nose appearance.

How was my recovery from rhinoplasty?

  • My nose was covered with a metal splint to ensure my nose takes its new shape. I experienced some bruising, swelling, and bruising, but they were minimal for me. I got better day after day and everything was ok.
  •  However, I still remember that the worst part of recovery for me was the general anesthesia. I found it difficult to wake up completely from the effects of anesthesia for the first couple of days after the operation, I really was dizzy.
  • Of course, full recovery required time. My nose was swollen and sensitive for months, however, after almost six months everything was ok, the swelling went away completely and I could see my results clearly.

Am I satisfied with my results after rhinoplasty?

  • The results were very good, I am really happy with it. I advise anyone who suffers from a nasal problem and would like to treat it but is afraid of the operation to go ahead and perform rhinoplasty.
  • It is a simple operation that can be done easily and smoothly. It is highly recommended. I would like to thank the doctor and his team for their efforts, they did a great job.

What are the post-instructions which are highly recommended to follow for better results?

  1. I would like to talk about some necessary recommendations which I followed after my operation. It is very important to consider after your operation too.
  2. First of all, your full results may take a year to be seen, so don’t worry if you don’t get it six months after the operation like in my case, it is different from person to person.
  3. Blowing your nose will affect your results negatively, so avoid it for a while after your operation.
  4. Use ice packs that help you feel more comfortable. Personally, it helped me so much.
  5. You should be careful when you wear or take off your clothes a while after the operation.
  6. Stay away from running and swimming and avoid any strenuous activities to maintain your results. For me I love swimming, but I had to avoid it for a couple of months.
