What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance and functionality of the nose. Plastic surgeons perform this operation to change the structure, shape, or size of the nose, which can significantly enhance both your appearance and breathing function. Rhinoplasty surgery, which Dr. Erman Ak specializes in, aims to achieve a more harmonious balance in your face and a natural beauty.

Rhinoplasty surgeries are usually done with two main techniques: open and closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty involves making a small incision under the skin of the nose, which gives the surgeon a better view of the nasal structures. This method is used in particularly complex cases and when more extensive changes are required. Closed rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is done through incisions made inside the nose, which leaves no external scarring.

Dr. Erman Ak carefully evaluates both techniques based on the patient’s existing nasal structure and their wishes. This helps determine the best method for each patient. Rhinoplasty surgeries help patients achieve their facial aesthetic goals while also improving their respiratory function.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty Surgery

Rhinoplasty surgery isn’t just about looking better it also boosts self-confidence and makes social interactions easier. Dr. Erman Ak’s rhinoplasty operations really enhance the overall look of the face, allowing patients to get a nose that better matches their facial features. Aesthetic Developments:
  • Face Symmetry: Since the nose is the center of the face, a nose with ideal proportions increases the overall symmetry and attractiveness of the face.
  • Rejuvenation in Appearance: Rhinoplasty, especially with techniques such as nose tip lifting, provide a younger and more dynamic appearance.
Functional Improvements:
  • Solving Breathing Problems: Rhinoplasty isn’t just about making you look better. It’s also a pretty important health intervention that can improve your breathing function. This operation can correct problems like septal curvature, which can be either congenital or acquired.
  • Improving Sleep Quality: When breathing problems are addressed, problems affecting sleep quality, such as sleep apnea, are also reduced, which has a positive impact on overall health.
Psychological and Social Benefits:
  • Increased self-confidence: An aesthetic nose increases self-confidence and allows a person to feel more comfortable in social environments.
  • Improving Social Perception: In addition to achieving an aesthetic appearance, it provides a positive effect on interpersonal communication, because people usually attach great importance to facial aesthetics in their first impressions.
Dr. Erman Ak is all about making sure his patients are happy after rhinoplasty surgery. He plans and implements every detail to ensure that patients are both aesthetically and functionally satisfied. By understanding the unique needs of each patient, he offers customized solutions.

Who Can Have Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty surgery is a good option for people who want to improve their facial appearance and functionality, but it isn’t for everyone. Dr. Erman Ak runs a thorough evaluation process to make sure that candidates are both physically and psychologically ready for the operation.

Physical Fitness Criteria:

  • Age: Generally, rhinoplasty surgery can be performed at the age of 18 and above for men and 17 for women. The reason for these age restrictions is that the development of facial bones must be complete.
  • General Health Status: Patients should have the capacity to receive anesthesia and have a smooth post-operative recovery.

Psychological and Emotional Preparation:

  • Realistic Expectations: It is important that candidates have realistic expectations about the results of the operation. Dr. Erman Ak takes the time to understand patients’ expectations and clearly explain the potential outcomes of the operation.
  • Personal Motivations: Aesthetic operations should be performed in line with personal wishes, without being under pressure or under the influence of others.

Health History and Previous Surgeries:

  • Health History: The conditions of individuals with previous operations or chronic health problems, especially in the nose or face area, should be evaluated in detail before the operation.
  • Medication Use: Some medications may increase the risk of complications before and after surgery. Therefore, all medication use should be reported to the doctor before planning the operation.

Dr. Erman Ak takes into account each candidate’s individual characteristics and offers the best solutions to meet their health and aesthetic goals. This individual approach is aimed at ensuring a high level of patient satisfaction after the operation.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty surgery is a detailed process that provides aesthetic and functional improvements. Dr. Erman Ak tailors the process to each patient’s needs and aesthetic goals. Here are the basic steps of this process:

Consultation and Planning:

  • During the preoperative consultation, Dr. Erman Ak evaluates the patient’s nasal structure, facial features and expectations. This stage is critical for the personalization of the operation.
  • Using detailed medical images and sometimes 3D simulations, the patient’s expectations of the outcome are clarified and an operation plan is created.

Surgical Techniques:

  • Open Rhinoplasty: In this technique, a small incision is made in the skin between the nostrils and the structure of the nose is exposed. This makes more complex changes possible.
  • Closed Rhinoplasty: It is performed through incisions inside the nose and leaves no external incision marks. It is preferred for simpler corrections.


  • This surgical procedure is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes between 1 and 3 hours.
  • Dr. Erman Ak reshapes the nasal cartilage and bones, lifts the tip of the nose or straightens the bridge of the nose if necessary.

Aftermath and Recovery:

  • After the operation, patients can usually return home on the same day.
  • The healing process varies depending on the general health status of the patient and the size of the procedure.

Dr. Erman Ak is all about planning and executing each step so that patients get functional improvements and aesthetically pleasing results. With a follow-up plan specific to each patient, he provides maximum support throughout the healing process.

Preparation Before Rhinoplasty

If you’re getting a rhinoplasty, it’s important to prepare for the surgery. Dr. Erman Ak and his team can help you get ready for the big day. Here’s what you need to do before the procedure:

Medical Evaluation and Testing:

  • Before the operation, a comprehensive medical examination is performed to assess your general state of health.
  • Important tests such as blood tests, chest x-rays and ECGs provide the necessary information for suitability for anesthesia.

Medication and Nutrition Regulations:

  • At least two weeks before surgery, medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen that may increase bleeding should be avoided.
  • It is recommended not to smoke or drink alcohol until the day of the operation, as these factors can negatively affect the healing process.

Prohibition of Eating and Drinking after Midnight:

  • On the morning of the operation, you should come to the hospital on an empty stomach. This is to prevent possible complications while you are under anesthesia.

Psychological Preparation:

  • Rhinoplasty can be a major change, both physically and emotionally. Being mentally prepared for the operation helps the process go more smoothly.

Operation Day Preparations:

  • Before coming to the hospital, try to spend a comfortable night at home.
  • Be at the hospital at the recommended time for the operation and it is advisable to take a relative with you.

Dr. Erman Ak is there for patients every step of the way, making sure they feel safe and supported before, during, and after surgery. These preparations increase the chances of success and help patients heal faster.

Postoperative Recovery and Care

The success of rhinoplasty surgery depends a lot on proper care and follow-up in the postoperative period. Dr. Erman Ak and his team provide comprehensive support and guidance to ensure that patients recover quickly and effectively. Here are a few things to consider during the recovery process:

First 24 Hours:

  • In the first hours after surgery, patients may often feel mild dizziness and pain. This is normal and your doctor may prescribe painkillers.
  • After a short period of observation in hospital, most patients are sent home the same day.

First Week:

  • Swelling and bruises may occur on the face, these conditions will subside within a few days.
  • Keeping your head in an elevated position helps reduce swelling and bruising.
  • It is important to avoid heavy exercise and to be careful not to use too many facial expressions.

Recovery Process:

  • The recovery process varies from person to person, but most patients can return to normal activities within a few weeks.
  • Nasal splints and facial bandages are used in the first few days; this is necessary for the nasal structure to adapt to its new shape.
  • Stitches are usually self-resorbing or can be removed within a week.

Long Term Care:

  • During and after the recovery process, it is important to avoid smoking and maintain healthy eating habits.
  • The nose can take up to a year to take its final shape, during which time it is necessary to be patient.

Dr. Erman Ak keeps an eye on his patients regularly to make sure everything’s going well and to make sure they’re comfortable. He puts patient satisfaction and comfort first at every step.

Risks and Cautions

Just like any other surgical procedure, rhinoplasty surgery has certain risks and considerations. Dr. Erman Ak explains these risks to his patients and takes every possible step to minimize them with the highest level of safety measures. Here are some potential risks of rhinoplasty surgery and things to consider:

Surgical Risks:

  • Infection: The risk of infection is minimized with sterile conditions and appropriate surgical techniques.
  • Bleeding: Bleeding that may occur during and after surgery can be controlled with experienced surgical intervention.
  • Asymmetry: In some cases, unwanted asymmetry in the nasal structure may occur after surgery, but this can be corrected with revision surgery.

Aesthetic Risks:

  • Dissatisfaction: Each patient may react differently to the results of the operation. Dr. Erman Ak conducts extensive interviews in advance to manage patients’ expectations realistically.
  • Breathing Difficulties: Due to structural changes, some patients may experience temporary breathing difficulties. This usually improves during the healing process.

Long Term Thinking:

  • Revision Surgery: After the first operation, some patients may require a second operation because they have not achieved the desired results.

Dr. Erman Ak talks about these risks before the operation and takes the right precautions for each patient to make sure everything goes well. Patient safety and satisfaction are always a priority for Dr. Ak, and this is one of his main goals in all surgical processes.
