Rhinoplasty is not an emergency surgery and your overall health is always our priority.  During your pre-operative examination, you will be questioned about your medical history, regular medications, allergies and previous surgeries. The tests necessary for general anaesthesia will be performed in the hospital before the surgery and the anaesthesia surgeons will evaluate the results. Our aim is to perform all surgical procedures by minimizing all risks and at the highest-level security.

  • Aspirin and other blood thinners, painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs, vitamin pills, weight-loss pills should be discontinued 10 days before surgery and should not be used for 10 days after surgery as this will cause bleeding during and after surgery.
  • Since herbal teas (green tea, lemon tea, etc.) may increase the risk of bleeding, it should not be used before and after 1 week of the surgical intervention. You can drink black tea.
  • It is advisable not to consume foods containing salicylic acid such as cherries, sour cherries, garlic, fresh and dried grapes, watermelons, which rarely increase bleeding, and have aspirin-like effects within a week before surgery if possible.
  • Smoking and hookah negatively affect wound healing.  Therefore, it is recommended to stop it as early as possible before surgery and not to use it for 10 days postoperatively.
  • Alcohol consumption should be stopped one week before the operation.
  • Please come to the hospital on the day of the operation with comfortable clothing.  Please do not make up and do not apply nail polish.
