Skin Care After Rhinoplasty
After the rhinoplasty operation, a bandage and an external nasal splint are placed on the nose. Especially in patients with oily cit structure, skin oil can accumulate under the bandage after surgery. Patients who previously had a large number of oily pores (comedones) on their nasal skin, with thick and oily skin structures, sometimes require skin cleansing or medical treatment. Especially vitamin a derivative lotion or cit care products are discussed on this issue.
When the first week is completed after the rhinoplasty operation, the nose bandages are removed. As seen in the photo above, when the bandages are removed in the first week, oily areas (accumulated fat layer) can be seen on the nasal skin. Although the material used is hypalgic (3M brown paper tape containing micropores) that allows air transfer, the produced skin oil can accumulate because it cannot come out.

Allergic Rhinitis - Symptoms, Treatment and Precautions

Image
Hay Fever
Allergic rhinitis is an allergic inflammation of the respiratory tract, which includes the air passage in the nose. It is formed as a result of inhalation of an allergen immune system sensitive individual such as hair and skin particles that can be poured from pollen, dust and animals. In such individuals, the production of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies, which bind with allergen to mast cells and histamine-containing basophils, is triggered. These antibodies that bind to mast cells cause the release of inflammatory mediators such as histamine (and other chemicals) and as a result, the appearance of Allergic Rhinitis Disease, characterized by nasal itching, tears, sneezing attacks. "Hay Fever", which is used as a synonym as the word meaning, but no signs of infection, fever and malaise are observed. When allergic rhinitis is caused by any plant pollen, the terms "Pollinosis" and especially if grass pollen causes "Hay Fever" are used.

Open or Closed Technique Nose Aesthetic Surgery!

Image
What are the advantages and disadvantages of open technique and closed technique rhinoplasty?

In the open technique, after the skin incision in the columella, the nose skin is dissected from front to back and the procedure is performed and a visible incision is seen. Complaints such as nasal edema, bleeding under the nose, numbness and pain can be expected more. However; open technique allows easy access and repair of all problem areas present in the nose. The open technique is more suitable, especially in patients with advanced cartilage curvature or nasal curvature. The experience and preferences of the surgeon and the patient's expectations are also important in the selection of the technique. Both techniques are safely applied in experienced hands.

Rhinoplasty is the most common aesthetic procedure performed today to improve the external appearance of the nose and to eliminate breathing difficulties. The operation performed in the surgery is basically the shaping of the bone …

Why Five Corner Columellar Incision is Used in Open Technique Rhinoplasty

Image
Mid-columellar W-shaped incision
In rhinoplasty operations, the cartilage structure of the nose is revealed by lifting the nasal skin from front to back. When viewed from the outside, the middle section that separates both nostrils is called “columella.. In the nose aesthetic techniques in medical history books, the incisions made to the skin of the columella have been modified and the reverse V or reverse W-shaped incision (columellar inverted-V incision) has become the most commonly used open technique rhinoplasty incision today.

In addition, incisions in the form of "Z" and "V" and other forms may also be used.
As the number of corners in the incision increases, fewer scars occur! It was found that as the number of vertices found in the incision to the columella increased, the formation of hypertrophic scarring decreased and fewer scars were left. Therefore, this incision, which has 5 corners in the picture, has become widely used in open technique rhinoplasty a…

Second month follow-up after endoscopic myringoplasty operation
Control hearing test (audiometry test) of a patient who had undergone endoscopic eardrum surgery to his right ear 2 months ago. When the eardrum was closed, the hearing was almost normal. Endoscopic ear surgery does not usually require an externally visible skin incision. The procedure is performed completely through the external ear canal. We also planned endoscopic membrane surgery in the other ear of our patient.

The reddish color of castellani solution, an antiseptic dye dripped into the patient's ear, can be seen in the cartilage graft placed at the site of the closed eardrum.




In endoscopic eardrum surgeries, there are advantages such as making the eardrum visible directly by the endovision prompt and not requiring additional skin incision except the incision in the cartilage graft area. Particularly in incisions made behind the auricle, there are disadvantages such as the need to press the auricle for several w…

Turbinate Reduction Procedures

Techniques For Reduce The Size of Inferior Turbinates
Some terminological information Before starting the article, I would like to share some terminological information:

The growth of nasal turbinates (turbinate hypertrophy) is a condition in which the meats inside the nose become larger than normal and cause nasal congestion.

The lower turbinate (inferior turbinate) is the turbinate at the bottom of the nasal cavity. Generally, reduction operations are performed for this turbinate.

Nasal hyperventilation, turbinate resections, which have recently been brought to the fore, may cause loss of permanent nasal function and is not a recommended method!

Abnormal reduction of the turbinate of the nose or an increase in the rate of intranasal airflow, such as in patients with holes in the nasal septum, and associated symptoms such as dryness of the nose, crusting of the nose and feeling of air hunger.

Empty nose syndrome, which occurs when partial or complete removal of the turbinate of the …
