Tipplasty (Tipplasty: Minor Rhinoplasty)
It is a procedure only to correct the deformation on the tip (asymmetry, wideness, ptosis, nose tip deformity-narrowness) provided that the anatomic structure of the nasal bone is normal.
In the interview, your complaints about your nose and expectations after the operation are primarily evaluated.
Photos of your nose are taken from 8 different angles and the possible look after operation is demonstrated to you on the computer.
The before and after operation photos of the operated noses are demonstrated.
When you decide for the operation, my assistant plans the suitable day for the operation.
The closed rhinoplasty technique (no scar will form on the outside of nose because the procedure is made from inside the nose) is used.
Since the nasal bone structure is normal, no procedure is applied to the bone.
The cartilages bones and soft tissues forming the nasal tip structure are reshaped (where art meets science). Nasal ptosis, extremely upturned tips or asymmetry, unevenness, nose tip, nostrils are corrected and aesthetically reshaped.
After aesthetically shaping the nose, special tapes are adhered to the nose.
No tampon or splint is used.
Duration of Operation
It changes between 30-60 minutes depending on the problem of the nose.
The patient is discharged on the day of the operation or stays in the hospital for one night depending on the operation.
Hilotherapy mask is applied after the operation. Therefore, pain, swelling and bruise on the face occur rarely. Cooling with Hilotherapy mask is applied between the degrees 15-20 and so the patient is relaxed in the first hours.
It is important that your head is at a high position (i.e. sleeping on two pillows) when lying on the bed for one week after operation.
If a perforates silicone splint (enables breathing from the nose) has been used, it is removed 2-3 days after the operation and you can take a warm shower without heating up the plastic splint put on the nose.
You are given two different nose sprays to spray into your nose (one is used for about 1 week and the other for 4 weeks).
2 days after the operation is the period when the swelling and edema are at the highest level (depending on the structure of the person and the technique applied) and then, they rapidly disappear.
The plastic splint and tapes on the nose are removed 5 days after the operation. And a skin-color tape is put on your nose for one week more and your edema is ensured to completely go away.
About 7 days after the operation, you can go back to your work depending on your recovery period and the work you perform.
It is normal that your nose tip may have little numbness. It decreases within 2-3 months and recovers completely.
If necessary, you will be instructed on how to make a nasal massage depending on your nasal structure.
You can start using your contact lenses 3 days after, glasses with a light frame 1 month after and glasses with a heavy frame 3 months after the operation.
If the concha and deviates septum are intervened due to the difficulty in breathing, nasal blockage is normal after the operation, this will go away in time within about 2 months. It results from the swelling and scabs inside the nose.
2 weeks later you can start doing light exercises that do not force you and you can swim six weeks later.
The nose takes its final shape about 6 months-1 year later.
In the researches, it is seen that the patients have a positive development in human relations and their behaviors after the operation. You’ll notice and enjoy the new shape of your nose after the 3rd week of the operation.
