Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery
Nose Aesthetics Operations (Rhinoplasty)
One of the biggest determinants of face shape is the nose. Sometimes, excessively large, wide or arched nose shapes can cause aesthetic problems and negatively affect a person's self-confidence and social life. Aesthetic operations performed to change the shape of the nose are called rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can be performed by two different methods known as open and closed techniques. The method to be used is decided by the physician, taking into account the structural characteristics of the person. These operations are performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the needs of the person. Septum deviation, where the crooked nasal bone sometimes makes breathing difficult or obstructs, and turbinate hypertrophy, where the intranasal tissues swell due to allergies-like reasons and cause nasal congestion, can be treated with rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty operations usually take a few hours. The tampons placed after the operation are removed within a few days, and a one-week rest period is sufficient for the patient to return to his/her daily life. It may take a few months for the post-operative edema to subside completely and the nose shape to be fully adjusted.
Breast Aesthetic Operations (Reduction, Enlargement and Lift)
Breast shape and size greatly affects women's daily lives. Breast aesthetic operations can be divided into three headings: breast enlargement, reduction and lift. Excessively large breasts can cause problems such as posture disorders and back pain, as well as aesthetic problems. Breasts that are small or sagging for various reasons can disturb the person aesthetically and negatively affect the psychology. Liquid-filled breast prostheses are used in breast enlargement operations, which is one of the most frequently performed aesthetic procedures. The most preferred of these prostheses are silicone-based ones. These operations are sometimes performed in cases where both breasts are small, and sometimes they are performed to ensure symmetry between the two breasts and with other body shapes. Breast reduction operations aesthetically improve the appearance of overly large breasts, correcting conditions such as poor posture and offering a more comfortable life. Breast lift operations can be performed both together with other breast operations and alone. It is possible to restore the sagging breasts to their former forms over time, due to weight gain or loss or as a result of breastfeeding, with breast lift operations.
Fat Removal Operations (Liposuction)
Excess fat, called regional fatness, seen in certain parts of the body, poses an aesthetic problem. These excess fat can be removed from the body with liposuction operation. Liposuction is applied by vacuuming and removing fat tissues, which are made more fluid by various methods, through cannulas. Liposuction is not a weight loss method. It is important for the person to be at their ideal weight before the operation.
Abdominal tissues may loosen and sagging may occur as a result of rapid weight loss after excessive weight gain or pregnancy. Even if the person is at his ideal weight, these excesses may cause aesthetic discomfort. Operations that remove these sagging tissues and give the abdomen a more aesthetic and healthy appearance are called tummy tuck operations (abdominoplasty). Abdominal stretching operations are not a weight loss method. Therefore, it is important for people to be at their ideal weight before this operation.
Eyelid Operations (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelids, along with the gaze, are of great importance in terms of facial aesthetics. Problems such as sagging, wrinkles, swelling, etc. in the eyelids negatively affect eye aesthetics and therefore facial aesthetics. While wrinkles, skin sagging and fat deposits, which are generally seen due to age in the upper eyelid, create aesthetic problems, under-eye swelling and wrinkles are generally seen in the lower eyelid. It is possible to eliminate various aesthetic problems that occur in the lower and upper eyelids, sometimes due to age and sometimes due to genetic characteristics, with eyelid operations (blepharoplasty).
Eyebrow Lift Operations
Low eyebrows, which are one of the most important components of facial aesthetics, and hanging lower than they should cause the person to look more tired and older. Resolving these problems is possible with eyebrow lift operations. During these operations, the general position of the eyebrows on the face is corrected and the wrinkles in and around the eyebrows are eliminated. Eyebrow lift operations can sometimes be performed in combination with eyelid and face lift operations to give the person a younger and more aesthetic appearance.
Face Lift Operations
Depending on advancing age and time, facial tissues sag and collapse in a downward movement. These sagging and collapses are the most distinctive features of old age images. Restoring the face shape and giving the person a younger appearance is possible with face lift operations. Basically, face lift operations are based on lifting and correcting facial tissues by lifting them, as well as removing excess sagging skin. Face lift operations are sometimes accompanied by eyebrow lift and eyelid operations. Combined in this way, the person has a younger appearance.
The process of injecting fat taken from different parts of the body, especially the abdomen, in order to give a fuller appearance to certain parts of the body and face is called fat injections. Fat injections are mostly applied to facial tissues. The main reasons for its application are to plump the lips, eliminate wrinkles around the mouth, highlight the tip of the chin, and plump the cheekbone areas. Apart from the face, a more aesthetic and fuller appearance can be achieved with fat injection applications to the breasts and hips.
Ear Aesthetic Operations
Ears, which are complementary to facial aesthetics, are important in terms of appearance from an early age. The appearance called prominent ears, which occurs due to insufficiency of ear folds or ear cartilages larger than normal, causes aesthetic problems and negatively affects people's lives. With ear aesthetic operations, the prominent ear appearance can be easily eliminated and the person can be given a better appearance. Ear aesthetic operations, unlike most plastic surgery interventions, can also be performed in childhood.
Jaw and Cheekbone Operations
Chin and cheekbone operations are among the most popular aesthetic operations today. Full and prominent cheekbones and chin tips provide people with sharper and more aesthetic facial lines, making the person younger and more attractive. Various methods are used to highlight the chin and cheekbones. These are generally surgically placed facial prostheses and implants, fat injections where fat is taken from different parts of the body, temporary dermal fillers and suspension methods. Choosing the most appropriate method for the person is decided by the physician, depending on the needs.
Leg Aesthetic Operations
Thin and beautiful legs have had an important place in definitions of beauty since ancient times. Loss of aesthetic appearance due to sagging, protrusions, curvatures, distortions, etc. in the legs creates negativities for people. Elimination of these aesthetic deficiencies is possible with leg aesthetic applications. Fat injections, thigh lift operations, knee aesthetic operations and prostheses applied to thin legs can be counted among the leg aesthetic applications.
