Rhinoplasty in Turkey, Istanbul

Rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to alter the shape of the nose. 

The motivation behind rhinoplasty can vary, encompassing aesthetic enhancements, functional improvements in breathing, or a combination of both. This versatile surgery can effectively rectify conditions such as a deviated septum or a fractured nose.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Each rhinoplasty procedure is meticulously tailored to the individual’s unique anatomy and desired outcomes.


During the procedure: Patients are administered medication to induce a state akin to sleep for the surgery, a process referred to as anesthesia. The choice of anesthesia depends on the complexity of the surgery and the surgeon’s preferences. We recommend discussing the most suitable anesthesia type with your surgeon.

Rhinoplasty Recovery Time

Basic recovery from rhinoplasty is around a month. Expect to experience swelling for approximately four to six weeks post-surgery, with gradual reduction over the course of three months. Between three months and one year, your nose will continue to heal, and some residual swelling may persist. The complete realization of your desired results typically occurs after a year, although the exact recovery timeline can vary from person to person.

Male Rhinoplasty

Male rhinoplasty surgery specifically caters to the distinct facial features of men. This procedure is a facet of facial plastic surgery designed to enhance a patient’s facial appearance by masculinizing the nose.


A critical element of male rhinoplasty is the preservation of a masculine nose structure, avoiding any feminization of the patient’s nasal profile. This entails maintaining a straight and well-defined dorsum, typically without a supratip break. Dr. Haliloğlu emphasizes that, as with all rhinoplasty procedures, it is crucial to prioritize both the preservation of nasal function and the attainment of your desired aesthetic outcomes.

Rhinoplasty Surgery F.A.Q.

Patients often have numerous questions about Rhinoplasty, commonly known as nose jobs.


In this concise guide, we have compiled the most frequently asked questions to offer comprehensive answers to your inquiries.

Rhinoplasty is a dual-purpose surgical procedure that combines both functional and aesthetic aspects to enhance the appearance and function of the nose.


As the central focal point of the face, the nose plays a pivotal role in defining one’s unique facial expression. Individuals often seek rhinoplasty to align their nose with their desired self-image, crafting their ideal beauty concept and achieving a profound transformation when they gaze into the mirror.

In essence, female rhinoplasty typically entails the removal of larger sections of the bridge, an increase in tip rotation, and the incorporation of greater tip definition. Conversely, male rhinoplasty may involve minimal to no bridge reduction and the preservation of a more acute nasal rotation.

Rhinoplasty is generally not a highly painful procedure, yet patients can expect to experience a sensation of tightness due to facial swelling and the application of bandages. In some cases, mild discomfort may arise, which can be effectively managed with over-the-counter pain relievers like paracetamol. For patients who require nasal packing, a brief, temporary burning sensation may be encountered.

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure typically favored by young adults. It is crucial to ensure that one’s anatomical growth has fully matured before considering a nose job. For females, it is advisable to wait until at least the age of 17, while for males, a minimum age of 18 is recommended.


The primary goal is to allow for complete physical and emotional development.


In Turkey, the legal age for undergoing such surgery is 18. It is imperative that the individual undergoing rhinoplasty demonstrates the maturity necessary to adhere to post-operative procedures.


Assessing a patient’s readiness for the procedure can be accomplished by asking pertinent questions and gauging their level of preparedness.

Nasal aesthetic and breathing issue surgeries are delicate procedures requiring a surgeon with profound expertise. It is imperative that your surgeon possesses a thorough understanding of facial anatomy. To make an informed decision, it is crucial to scrutinize the surgeon’s prior surgical cases, assessing both the quantity and diversity of procedures they have conducted. Equally significant is your doctor’s approach to your individual case.


The majority of post-rhinoplasty swelling, medically referred to as edema, typically subsides within one month. Bruising, on the other hand, tends to resolve within 7 to 10 days following the rhinoplasty procedure.


It is important to note that patients can expect to see preliminary results within 3 to 4 months, providing an initial glimpse of the final outcome. However, the true final result of the procedure may take at least one year to fully manifest.

Your initial recovery period typically spans about one week.


After this week, you can gradually return to your daily routine, using minimal makeup. However, it’s essential to bear in mind that your healing journey is far from complete.


You may experience slight swelling around the nose and under the eyes, although these effects are typically inconspicuous and will gradually diminish.

Patients must refrain from engaging in any activities that may elevate blood pressure in the head area, potentially leading to bleeding or injury in the nose. Consequently, yoga, pilates, strenuous fitness routines, and all forms of heavy exercise are strictly prohibited for a minimum of 6-8 weeks following surgery.


While your initial recovery typically spans about one week, it’s essential to exercise caution. After this period, you can gradually resume your daily routine with minimal makeup. However, please bear in mind that the road to complete recovery is still ahead. You may experience slight swelling in the nose and under the eyes, although it will be scarcely noticeable and should gradually diminish.

It is crucial to understand that your facial structure is unique, and consequently, the outcome of your rhinoplasty will be tailored to you specifically.


Rhinoplasty is a customized surgical procedure, and the expectations are contingent on several factors such as your desired outcome, the golden ratios of your facial features, any prior surgeries, or pre-existing damage.


Our primary objective is to craft a natural, aesthetically improved nose that harmonizes with your overall facial appearance while addressing any breathing concerns.
