In the Rhinoplasty procedure, you will need to stay in hospital during the period recommended by your doctor. This period can be up to 7 days.

Discomfort in the nose and burning sensation in the throat will occur. You will not be able to use your nose at the very beginning because of the gauze placed on the nose to prevent blood flowing through the nose. The first 3 days the swelling level will be high, then it will begin to decrease.

From the second week, bruising and swelling will begin to ease. During this period, you can start light activities.

What are the steps of a rhinoplasty procedure?

Step 1 – Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

Step 2 – The incision

Rhinoplasty is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.

Through these incisions, the skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages is gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.

Step 3 – Reshaping the nose structure

An overly large nose may be reduced by removing bone or cartilage. Sometimes surgery of the nose may require the addition of cartilage grafts.

Most commonly, cartilage from the septum, the partition in the middle of the nose, is used for this purpose. Occasionally cartilage from the ear or rarely a section of rib cartilage can be used.

Step 4 – Correcting a deviated septum

If the septum is deviated, it can be straightened and the projections inside the nose reduced to improve breathing.

Step 5 – Closing the incision

Once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, nasal skin and tissue is redraped and incisions are closed.

Additional incisions may be placed in the natural creases of the nostrils to alter their size.

Step 6 – See the results

For a few days, splints and gauze packing may support the nose as it begins to heal. Get more information about rhinoplasty results.

Why Is Rhinoplasty Cheaper In Turkey?

The Rhinoplasty costs in Turkey are much more attractive than in the US and EU countries. There are different reasons for this situation. The reasons for cheaper rhinoplasty in Turkey which is performed at the EU standards with a high success rate are generally as follows:

  • Supports and incentives provided by the government to health tourism
  • Competition due to the presence of many clinics in Istanbul where rhinoplasty is performed
  • The lower value of the Turkish Lira compared to currencies such as €, $ and £
  • Lower clinic expenses and doctor salaries compared to Europe
  • Lower cost of medical supplies compared to Europe



Recovery after rhinoplasty

There is a fast recovery period after rhinoplasty. In the first week, a splint and a silicon nasal tampon are used. At the end of the first week, this splint and tampon are removed, and the patient can quickly return to daily life. Edema and bruising will be almost over after 10 days. 

It is very important not to take any impacts on the nose during the first 3 weeks. The application of ice for the first 48 hours after the procedure is very important for bruising and bleeding problems. It is possible to see the final shape of the nose within 6 months. 


Recently, the process has become more comfortable thanks to the different methods used in Rhinoplasty. The silicone pads do not cause problems with breathing. Surgical intervention for the patients who have bone and cartilage deformities is necessary. However, minimal problems can be overcome with temporary fillings.

There are two main reasons why a patient will want further nasal surgery. First, he or she may be unhappy with the appearance of the nose. This is the most common problem, since most people undergo rhinoplasty in the first place to change the nasal appearance. Second, the patient may be experiencing nasal obstruction after surgery. Sometimes the obstruction was present before the first surgery, and did not improve enough. Other times, obstruction can be caused by surgery. So if you are experiencing or you will experience one of these reasons you are likely to undergo a second rhinoplasty surgery.

In the open technique used in rhinoplasty, a small incision is made between the nostrils to perform the procedure so it is likely that a very mild scar is left in this part of the nose. Since wound healing varies from person to person, this scar does not appear to be the same in all patients. In open rhinoplasties performed by cutting at the right site, there will almost be no scar.

It is strictly forbidden to blow in the first week. From the second week on, you can clean your nose by rinsing with saline water. During this period, you can blow it lightly.
