After all, there’s nothing scary about visiting a foreign country that receives more than 3 million tourists every year. So, if you’re thinking of improving facial features, keep reading on as we inform you about Rhinoplasty.
What is Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that aims to improve the nose's functionality and appearance. From this definition, it's vivid to depict that there are two types of Rhinoplasty: cosmetic Rhinoplasty and functional Rhinoplasty. Cosmetic Rhinoplasty is solely designed to enhance the outward appearance of the nose, whereas functional Rhinoplasty is performed so as to correct a patient's breathing problems.
Whether it's cosmetic or functional Rhinoplasty, this 2015 study concluded that Rhinoplasty is very effective in straightening or reshaping a crooked nose when performed along with facial symmetry. Rhinoplasty has evolved with the advancement of technology, and it has proven to be safe and reliable when performed solo or along with other facial procedures.
Effects of a Crooked Nose to Your Health
Before we get into how crooked nose can affect your health, let’s start by discussing the causes of a crooked nose. There are two different types of crooked noses. The first one results from the complexity of cartilage, or the bones tissues that make up your nose.
This may be due to the following:
- Birth defects
- Infection that is severe
- Injuries that may cause your nose to break
- Unsuccessful surgery on your nose.
From the above situations, your nose can become C, I, or S-shaped.
The second cause of a crooked nose is a result of a deviated septum. A septum is an internal structure that divides your nasal cavity into two passages: left and right. So, if your septum is said to have deviated, this simply means that this internal structure is leaning to one side and it is blocking one side of your nose.
Regardless of the type of a crooked nose or the causes, a crooked nose can affect your health by causing:
- Difficulty and loud breathing
- Difficulty in sleeping on a certain side
- Nasal congestion/headaches
- Sinus infections
There are many reasons why Turkey receives more than 700 000 foreigners who visit the country for medical treatments. Among this number are prominent celebrities from different parts of the world. Below is a list of some of the reasons that make people travel for thousands of miles just to have medical treatment in Turkey.
Internationally recognized doctors
Most of the Turkish doctors had their training in International Institutions, and they are recognized globally for their innovative contributions in the field of medicine. Some of the widely used techniques used worldwide were pioneered by Turkish doctors. The most recent method pioneered in Turkey is a liver transplant technique –that allows people with smaller livers to be donors and also reduce their operational risk, boosting hope for recipients.
Rhinoplasty, Breast Augmentation, Face Lift, Hair Transplant, Liposuction, et cetera are some of the surgical procedures that have a sky-high success rate in Turkey. Online reviews of health tourists who came to Turkey for treatment confirm that the patients were satisfied by the outcome of the surgery.
Technology is at the center of all the surgical procedures performed in Turkey. This is probably one of the reasons why the procedures have a high success rate. Even before the surgery commences, the medical instruments used to examine the patient in the laboratory are technologically advanced –this is done so as to minimize any side effects that can be associated with the surgery.
Most of the Turkish clinics and hospitals are driven by the philosophy of being patient-oriented. This means that a patient’s specific health needs and desired results are the driving force behind all health care decisions made. Regardless of one’s nationality, race and religion, every patient is a partner with the medical staff not only from a clinical perspective, but also from an emotional, mental, spiritual, social, and financial perspective.
Rhinoplasty Cost in Turkey
For over a decade, Turkey has been a premium plastic surgery destination for health tourists from different countries. Patients from as far as the United States, Africa, and the Middle East rely on Turkish clinics and hospitals for their cosmetic surgery procedures. This is not only because of the above mentioned factors but also because of the affordability of treatments. The cost of a Rhinoplasty in Turkey is 2300 EUR, this is a reasonable price considering that it includes transportation within Turkey and accommodation.
Why Before the New Year?
Is there anything screams change and a new start than the New Year? If you have read this far, you’re probably considering having a rhinoplasty –why not go for it before 2019 becomes part of history. This time of the year is always fascinating in Turkey as people await the dawn of a New Year –this makes it an opportune time to experience Turkey and all its goodness while you’re on your medical visit. And if you think about it, it’s much more like hitting two birds with one stone.
