What awaits the patient after surgery?
After the operation, the patient wakes up with a stabilizer mold on the back of the nose and 1-2 mm thick soft silicone leaves inside the nose. It is recommended to lie with the head slightly elevated and apply a cold compress around the eyes. Silicones are removed on the 1st day after the surgery, and the mold is removed on the 10th day. The result obtained is not the final state of the nose. Getting the nose to its final shape is a slow process. On average, it can take 1-1.5 years.

What are the advantages of ultrasonic rhinoplasty (aesthetic nose surgery performed by ultrasound method) method?
In this surgery, the nasal bones are shaped with controlled incisions. Incisions made with the classical method can cause damage to the soft tissues around the bone. Ultrasonic cutters greatly reduce this damage. Bone incisions in millimeters and exactly at the desired location can be made more easily with ultrasonic cutters. Soft tissues such as vessels, nerves and muscles are protected by ultrasonic method without being damaged. Bone shaping is done in a controlled and rapid manner. Post-operative swelling, pain and bruising are minimized. It speeds up the healing time. It is easier to achieve the desired ideal results in rhinoplasty performed with ultrasonic cutters.
