Differences in rhinoplasty surgery for thin or thick skin

Rhinoplasty is considered one of the most complex operations in plastic surgery, where there are no trifles. There are many nuances to consider when planning the nose treatment, including the characteristics of the skin. Getting a result that satisfies both the patient and the doctor is vital.

Is It Better To Have Thin or Thick Skin for Rhinoplasty?

The skin on the nose has different thicknesses, which requires a unique approach of the plastic surgeon to work with the patient who applied for help. Dr. Kadir Kilimcioglu takes a personalized approach to each patient and considers the skin type when planning rhinoplasty

Thin Skin

A small amount of subcutaneous tissue allows for an attractive relief with precise contours and graceful shapes. A beautiful tip of the nose will emphasize the impeccability of the plastic surgeon’s work. With age, thin skin can shrink a lot, making the tip look angular. Dr. Kadir considers the possible contractility when performing rhinoplasty surgery for thin skin.

Thick Skin

The thickness of subcutaneous tissue directly affects the thickness of the nasal skin, making it impossible to achieve a sharpened nasal tip. Another problem with thick skin is high density, stiffness, or low elasticity. Even after removing a significant portion of the underlying tissue, such as correcting a hump, you can find that the skin tends to retain its usual shape. Rhinoplasty surgery for thick skin requires significant surgeon skill and experience in similar cases. For thick skin noses, recovery may take longer due to the skin’s ability to tighten and repair. For the recovery process to proceed correctly and the result to show its best, it is essential to follow all the recommendations of Dr. Kadir.

Medium-thickness Skin

Best suited for rhinoplasty, allowing Dr. Kadir to use the full range of existing techniques to correct nasal defects in any part of the nose. Easily contracting, thin, and elastic skin during rehabilitation in the postoperative period perfectly fit the bones and cartilage. The plastic surgeon can shape any contour. The optimal density quickly hides the irregularities that appeared after the doctor’s work.

The thickness of the nasal skin is determined by palpation and visual inspection. In any case, Dr. Kadir can perform rhinoplasty on any skin type.

Can Thick Skin on the Nose Become Thin?

Thick skin during rhinoplasty is challenging to make thin. Dr. Kadir has special techniques and skills to work with thick skin. Thick skin, like a carpet, covers the new structure of the nose, as if smoothing and hiding it. Dr. Kadir uses a method of thinning the thick skin of the nose from the inside by trimming and removing excess fatty tissue, which improves the result of rhinoplasty and emphasizes the new structure of the nose.

Is Turkey a Good Country for Rhinoplasty?

Turkey is considered one of the best countries for a nose job, and Istanbul is the most popular city to undergo rhinoplasty. Here you can find the clinic of Dr. Kadir Klimcioglu, who has over 25 years of experience in the field of ENT and nose surgery. By choosing to undergo rhinoplasty surgery in Istanbul, you will combine aesthetic surgery performed by a professional doctor in the best clinic with the highest level of service, as well as an unforgettable vacation in the stunningly beautiful city of contrasts, Istanbul.
