Aesthetic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Specialist Op. Dr. Okan Morkoç gave information on the subject. Snoring is not just a noise, it is a serious health problem that affects even the cardiovascular system. Sleep apnea is also an important disease that is briefly referred to as 'breathing arrest during sleep'. The number of people experiencing these problems that negatively affect health and social life and turn nights into nightmares increased during the pandemic period.
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, or commonly known as sleep apnea, is a syndrome characterized by recurrent upper respiratory tract obstructions during sleep and accompanying decrease in blood oxygen value. It is generally seen in middle-aged and overweight men. It can happen at any age, but it is most common between the ages of 40-65. It is two to three times more common in men than in women. In women, it increases after menopause. It has been reported that the incidence of sleep apnea is 4% in men and 2% in women. Since it is a syndrome that is not well known both by the public and among physicians, delays in diagnosis are common. "
About 10-20 percent of those who have nasal surgery may have breathing problems. We investigated the importance of repairing the cartilage cut during surgery. Repairing this means that the bonds and functions there are fulfilled. During the surgery, we cut the skin inside the nose and perform the surgery, after we have done, we need to repair the cuts again. Is there anything to repair there? It is necessary to look at it.
With detailed operations performed in the nose area, all complaints of the patients are eliminated. With nasal operations that completely redefine the symmetry of the face, people's self-confidence is also refreshed and increased. Patients who feel extremely safe in social environments may prefer this operation for many different reasons.
Rhinoplasty is the surgical correction of congenital or subsequent deformities in the nose. As long as there are no serious functional disorders and deformities, it is performed after 18 years of age when the nasal development is completed. Along with the aesthetic correction, the difficulty in breathing through the nose, which many people suffer from, can also be corrected during this operation.
The nose is one of the most important organs in the body and allows breathing. For this reason, patients should be able to breathe healthy again after the operation. The more successful the operation is, the more healthy it will be for patients to breathe.
Before Nose Aesthetic Surgery
Before the aesthetics performed in the nose area, the patient is provided with a detailed examination and a deep examination is performed on the face area.
This physical examination is carried out in the company of surgeons and in the meantime, the patient is informed about the ideal nose sizes of the patients.
