Patient Guide

Rhinoplasty Surgery Process

  • When Does the Surgery Process Begin and End?
  • Rhinoplasty surgery process begins when the patient contacts the doctor for the first time. However, it is almost impossible to say when exactly it would end. Even though in most cases full recovery is reached within a year, this doesn’t mean that surgery process ends.

    As people get older, their faces also change constantly. Due to its position in the center of our face and being visible all the time, a small change in our nose would be noticed very easily by everybody around us. For this reason, it can be said that rhinoplasty surgery process and patient doctor relationship have no end.

    As both the patient and the doctor, we shouldn’t disregard the length of this process when we make our choices.

Recommendations for Our Patients

  • • At least 3 days before the surgery, it is recommended to stop drinking alcohol.

  • • At least one week before the surgery, using blood thinning drugs such as Aspirin should be stopped. Paracetamol (Parol, Minoset etc.) should be preffered as pain killer.

  • • Since herbal teas have blood thinning effects, it is recommended to stop drinking them at least one week before surgery. You can continue drinking black tea and coffee.

  • • It is recommended not to smoke for one week before the surgery and two weeks after the surgery in order to make the healing process faster.

  • • Eating and drinking including water must be completely stopped 8 hours before the surgery.

  • • Skin care is recommended for the patients especially with the oily skin before the surgery.
