Rhinoplasty by Dr. Ahmet Dilber
Plastic surgery has become increasingly popular over the past decade. Nearly all physical complaints people have can now be fixed. Among all types of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty is by far the most common. As a highly complex and difficult operation, it requires attention to detail and an experienced team to produce good results.
Being able to trust a doctor with a feature as important as the nose can be quite difficult. Dr. Ahmet Dilber however, has all qualities of a good rhinoplasty surgeon. Years of experience, compassion and attention to detail is what makes him one of the most prominent rhinoplasty surgeons in the world. But how does rhinoplasty work?
- What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a type of plastic surgery that can resolve issues of the nose. These issues may be deviation, breathing difficulties or visual appearance. There are two main types: open and closed rhinoplasty. In open rhinoplasty, a Z-shape incision is made between the nostrils to lift and seperate the skin from the nasal bone. This allows for precision and a more comfortable environment for the surgeon. Whereas in closed rhinoplasty, the only incisions made are on the inside of the nostrils and doesn’t leave any visible scarring. In comparison, open rhinoplasty has become the old, traditional way after closed rhinoplasty became popular. Dr. Ahmet Dilber’s preferred method of surgery is closed rhinoplasty. This method is also preferred by patients because there is very minimal swelling and scarring afterwards.
- Consultation and Operation
There is a consultation stage before every operation where patients can meet with Dr. Dilber to consider exactly what they want. As nose jobs can be performed for many different reasons, it’s important to discuss expectations. A majority of rhinoplasty operations are focused on changing the appearance of the nose. One of the main reasons Dr. Dilber is highly sought after is that he doesn’t stick to a fixed nose shape for every nose job. Taking into consideration the facial structure and ratio between facial features, he designs the perfect nose for every patient while keeping their wishes in mind. Consequently, the result of the surgery is always a brand new nose that is harmonious with the face.
For the operation, patients are put under general anesthesia. Typically, it can last for 2 to 4 hours depending on the case. As previously mentioned, incisions are made inside of the nose to reach the nasal bone. Then the nose is shaped according to the discussions made prior to the surgery. The operation is finished with stitching up the incisions in the nostril. The nose is then covered with a case which is removed by the doctor in one to two weeks. Resting is highly recommended for at least 14 days post-operation.
Another challenge of rhinoplasty is that results can vary in the coming months. Usually it takes 6 to 12 months for the nose to settle completely and take its final form. If the results change too much in the next year or so, patients can be dissatisfied and look for revision. However with Dr. Dilber’s work, the nose keeps its general shape for years to come and the results last for a lifetime.
- Revision Rhinoplasty
In addition to primary rhinoplasty, Dr. Dilber also performs revision rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is a corrective secondary surgery to fix or adjust the previous operation. Sometimes, patients can end up with droopy or rounded nose tips several years after the surgery. Revision is a more challenging type of operation compared to primary and as such, finding a trusted revision rhinoplasty surgeon is even harder.
Despite the challenges of such a rigorous surgery, Dr. Dilber has made a name for himself in the international arena. His online presence has brought in hundreds of people from all corners of the world. He gives detailed explanations of operations on social media, which allows people to gain insight on the subject.
