Rhinoplasty – what is rhinoplasty – before / after / prices / risks


What is Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty aims to support facial harmony and self-confidence by improving the proportions and general appearance of your nose to other structures on your face. Although the shape of the nose of the individual is generally a result of genetic / hereditary characteristics, the image may be distorted due to traumas, infections or previous operations. It aims to reach appropriate proportions that will befit the face, beyond the misperception thought only as reduction.

What We Can Change With Nose Surgery:

– The size of the nose, in accordance with the other structures of the face
– Nose width
– Nose Profile; such as the bridge of the nose or collapses
– Nose Tip; large or fleshy, large or disoriented
– Nose wings; large, wide, or disoriented
– Asymmetry and deviation
– Causes that have a negative effect on breathing; enlarged turbinates, valve disorders, septum deviations, etc.

What is the Price of Rhinoplasty Operation

Although it varies greatly from surgeon to surgeon, hospital to hospital, the need for the techniques to be applied, anesthesia fees, etc., the prices vary between 2000 and 20,000 TL, sharing the net prices via the internet and the media is prohibited by the latest laws. In choosing a doctor, it would be more appropriate to consider factors such as your trust in the doctor, satisfactory information, and, if possible, the feedback of the patients who had undergone the similar procedure before, rather than the price.

Does the Health Insurance / State Cover the Operation?

In most cases, although the operation is in the aesthetic category and is not covered, it is paid by insurance if factors such as breathing disorders and severe deformities are covered by health boards.
