Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty) in Turkey

More commonly known as a Nose Job, Rhinoplasty is a procedure to change the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasty is an option for anyone who is unhappy with their nose or wants to improve their breathing. Rhinoplasty is often combined with Septoplasty, a procedure that addresses nasal septum abnormalities. Rhinoplasty works for anyone with a bent, crooked, or misaligned nose due to injury or genetics.

Rhinoplasty changes the internal structure of your nose to reshape or improve the appearance of your nose. Experienced oral maxillofacial surgeons or certified plastic surgeons are qualified to perform this surgery. An initial consultation with your doctor allows you to discuss your goals and queries in detail. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular aesthetic surgeries with over 800,000 surgeries in a year. Turkey is among the top 5 countries in the world where most Rhinoplasties in the world are performed. Here is an insight into the details of this sought-after treatment and how to find access to the best doctors in Turkey:

A nose job or Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to alter the shape of your nose. The main aim of the surgery is to fix any shape or contour irregularities for a balanced and symmetrical nose. A straight and well-sculpted nose improves facial symmetry and makes your face stand out. A Rhinoplasty allows you to create a new customized nose that suits your face.

Types of Rhinoplasty

There are 4 main types of Rhinoplasties performed for different purposes. You can choose between the four of these procedures as per your needs. Our doctors will explain everything in detail so you can choose the best possible option:

  1. Open Rhinoplasty
  2. Closed Rhinoplasty
  3. Septorhinoplasty
  4. Nose tip Rhinoplasty

Open Rhinoplasty

The open technique in Rhinoplasty involves making an incision across the columella, the skin between the nostrils. Surgeons prefer this technique more than the others because it gives better access to the internal structures of the nose. It is recommended for patients with a nasal hump or a wide bridge, or those who find it hard to breathe through their nose.

Closed Rhinoplasty

The closed technique in Rhinoplasty involves making incisions inside the nose rather the outside. It is beneficial for cosmetic purposes such as narrowing the width of the nose or reshaping the tip of the nose. It leads to less visible scarring and a limited risk of an infected open wound.


This type of Rhinoplasty is performed more for medical reasons rather than cosmetic. The main purpose of this surgery is to improve your nasal breathing mechanism for better nasal breathing. The surgeon straightens the septum in this procedure to unblock the nasal passage for better nasal breathing. Surgeons recommend this procedure to people with sleep apnea and excessive snoring. More often surgeons also correct the shape of the nose during this surgery.

Nose tip Rhinoplasty

It is the least invasive Rhinoplasty technique that involves correcting the tip of the nose. Most surgeons use the closed technique in this procedure to make changes to the tip of the nose. The treatment addresses various concerns such as bulbous or droopy nose tips, and over-projected or asymmetrical tips.

A Rhinoplasty can solve various cosmetic and medical problems related to the nose. Here are some of the prerequisites to be eligible for this surgery:

  1. You are over 18 years of age and below 60.
  2. You are not happy with the shape of your nose and it makes you insecure about your looks.
  3. You have deformities or irregularities along the bridge of your nose.
  4. You have sleep apnea or a major snoring problem.
  5. You have realistic expectations from the surgery and do not expect it to change your entire appearance.
  6. Your general health is stable and you do not have any serious medical issues.
  7. You are not a smoker or consume excessive alcohol.

Rhinoplasty is a corrective surgery that aims to correct the aesthetics of your nose. Your nose is the focal point of your face and plays an integral role in facial symmetry. Here are the results you can expect after the surgery:

Improved Aesthetics: Rhinoplasty improves the aesthetics of your nose and balances the face structure. It gives you a straighter, sleeker, and sculpted nose that suits your face shape.

Thinner Face: A well-sculpted and balanced nose leads to a thinner and evenly shaped face. It gives a slimming effect to your face and improves facial symmetry.

Better Nasal Breathing: Rhinoplasty also leads to better and more efficient nasal breathing. Septorhinoplasty is a technique that straightens a deviated septum and nasal bone for better breathing through the nose.

Boosts Confidence: If you are insecure about how your nose looks, Rhinoplasty helps you restore that confidence. It adds to your confidence and self-esteem.

The best technique for you depends on your nose shape and how much work it needs. For some, Open Rhinoplasty is a more suitable option because it allows more accurate assessment while Closed Rhinoplasty works better for minor changes. Generally, surgeons prefer Open Rhinoplasty because of better access to the internal nasal structures. Closed Rhinoplasties are better for minor cosmetic corrections such as nose tip correction.
