What is Rhinoplasty?Genel @en
Nose is a unit/organ which is located in the centre of our face nd which has a irreplaceable aesthetic importance. As well as being the most dominant, effective and memorable part of facial image by itself, it is also perceived together with other organs nd units of the face.
A nose, which seems obtrusive itself, will not seem that obtrusive nd big when the flat image of the cheekbones is corrected. These perception mechanisms that define how our brain perceives and records things are called gestalt perception principles.
Thus, Rhinoplasty evaluation is conducted in 6 phases that differ from each other but also complete each other. In the first phase the length, angle and ratios regarding the nose itself such as bone structure, location nd sizes of cartilage structures, harmony of nostrils and nose tip are taken into consideration. Second phase consists of the relations nd positions of soft tissue structures neighboring nose such as cheeks, lips, brow lines, eyelids etc. In the third phase, rigid structures such as chin tip, chin contour, forehead, cheekbones and teeth and their combination with nose is evaluated and whether or not does a perceptional nd/r physical cohesion or contradiction exists is determined by measurement.
In the fourth phase, skin structure, characteristics, scars, acne marks, acquired suture scars of facial mucosa in general and nose mucosa in particular are evaluated as a whole with location nd depth. In the fifth phase, as they are located near nose, apparent deep cracks (under eye bags and nasolabial cracks between nose verge and lip verge) are evaluated in detail. Sixth phase consists of functional breathing capacity nd sufficiency and conchas, septum, valve angles etc. of the patient. Seventh phase is the evaluation of tissues lost as a result of accidents, traumas and previous nose operations, asymmetries, and such structures nd determination of tissues lost in previous operations.
