Revision rhinoplasty is preferred by people who have previously undergone a nose job but are unsatisfied with the results.

Revision rhinoplasty is often a challenging operation due to various reasons. The bone and cartilage structure might not be suitable for the desired result.

The first 3 day care after rhinoplasty are crucially important. It is advisable to abstain from embarking on a lengthy journey until after the tampons have been removed. As Vantage Clinic, we strongly advise our patients against flying for at least five days after undergoing nose surgery (rhinoplasty) in Istanbul, Turkey.

The nose is an organ that continues to develop throughout life. However, since bone development persists until the age of 18, nose surgery for aesthetic purposes is generally not recommended for individuals under this age, unless they have a significant health condition related to their nose. While the best age for rhinoplasty varies from person to person, it generally falls between the ages of 18 and 40. Nevertheless, individuals over the age of 40 can undergo nose job (rhinoplasty) in Istanbul, Turkey, provided their doctor does not advise otherwise.

Patients should avoid blood thinners such as aspirin, caffeine, and herbal teas at least three days before surgery. Additionally, they should refrain from eating or drinking anything in the 12 hours leading up to the surgery to ensure they are fasting for anesthesia. Your doctor or their assistants will provide you with detailed information regarding these guidelines.


On the first day after surgery, hospital staff typically offer the patient the most ideal menu. Generally, on the first day when tampons are still in your nose, it is advisable to consume soup-like, watery, and nourishing foods, while avoiding snacks and particularly hard foods that may strain the teeth. Foods that are difficult to chew can cause movement in the nose, leading to potential bleeding. Therefore, it is important for the patient to steer clear of hard and crunchy foods. They may consume items such as yoghurt, fruit juice, well-boiled potatoes and carrots, as well as broth-like foods. Especially, doctors recommend that patients consume plenty of broth during the first month as it accelerates bone healing.

If you have a history of sinusitis, you can still undergo a nose job (rhinoplasty) in Istanbul, Turkey. However, it’s important to take a two-week course of antibiotics (as advised by your doctor) beforehand. After completing the antibiotics, wait for one week before getting a limited coronal CT scan of your sinuses to assess whether any sinus procedures should be done concurrently with the rhinoplasty.

You should avoid using glasses or sunglasses until your nasal bone has healed. This is because during the first month after surgery, your nasal bone will be quite soft, and there is a possibility that the shape may deform as pressure is applied by the glasses. Although some sources suggest waiting for 6 weeks, most doctors generally advise against using glasses for at least the first 3 months.
