Face analysis before getting your rhinoplasty is very important. Each face has its own proportion. This makes every nose job to be planned in a tailor-made approach. 3-D modelling technology helps patients to visualize how the outcome can look before the surgery.

Another crucial aspect of rhinoplasty is the functionality of the nose after the surgery. It’s a fact that aesthetics is very important to patients during the decision making process. In contrast, a perfectly functioning nose is always on top of Acıbadem’s surgeons’ list.

There are two main techniques that can be applied in Rhinoplasty: open or closed method. Closed rhinoplasty is more commonly preferred today.
