Nose is the organ which principally contributes to our facial expression and beauty. Moreover, as nose is the most protuberant organ on our face, it is defenceless against trauma. If you think there is a deformity in your nose, which is not suitable to your face, due to whether genetic reasons or traumas occurring afterwards, it is possible to get rid of this problem thanks to a nose job. Furthermore, these operations, now, do not cause any pain, bruising and swelling as in the past. Thanks to advanced technology of today’s medicine, it is possible to correct the inner part of nose without applying any tampon in rhinoplasty. Thus, there is almost no complaints of nasal congestion and pain in post-operative period. Orbital swelling and bruising can be decreased to a minimum level thanks to Hilotheraphy mask.

Since our nose is also a functional organ, we diagnose such diseases which affect our ability to inhale and smell as deviation inside the nose ( curvature of the wall consisting of the bone and cartilage in the middle of the nose), inferior turbinate hypertrophy (inferior concha hypertrophy), nasal polyps, chronic sinusitis in the detailed pre-operative examination  and correct all these deformities during the nose job. Therefore, after the nose job, it is possible to inhale more comfortably and get rid of your chronic diseases such as sinusitis.
