Turkey is a hotspot for plastic surgeries, boasting some of the world’s best surgeons. Medical tourists worldwide travel to this Eurasian country to transform their appearance and supercharge confidence. The primary reasons are significantly lower prices, which have nothing to do with quality.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most sought-after procedures at Turkish cosmetic clinics, where patients get excellent results at a fraction of the cost. If you get a nose job in Turkey, you’ll eliminate any impairments or start breathing normally (or both) without burning a hole in your wallet.

Here’s one of the leading clinics to check out.

Dr. Salih Onur Basat 

If you want to get a high-quality nose job, you can’t go wrong with Dr. Salih Onur Basat – Rhinoplasty Turkey specialist.

He’s an expert plastic surgeon with years of experience performing breast aesthetic, body contouring, and facial aesthetic procedures, including nose aesthetic surgeries.

Dr. Basat graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at Istanbul University, where he later received medical training in Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery. He completed his specialty training in the same department at Okmeydanı Training and Research Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey.

He has received the European Board of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery (EBOPRAS) and the Turkish Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery (TPRECD) certificates, which showcase his outstanding skills and expertise.

Dr. Salih Onur Basat currently works at ClinicPlast, a renowned clinic in Istanbul with certified surgeons, physicians, registered nurses, and anesthesiologists. He specializes in rhinoplasty, among other cosmetic procedures, and provides high-quality, natural-looking results.

What is a rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty or nasal reconstruction is cosmetic surgery for reconstructing the nose. It’s ideal for altering the size or shape of your nose to make it more visually appealing.

Another reason for undergoing rhinoplasty is difficulty breathing due to a deviated septum or an injury. The procedure can help fix any structural defects to restore your nose’s function and eliminate breathing problems.

How does it work?

Rhinoplasty includes reshaping your nasal bone, cartilage, or both, requiring general anesthesia and a one-night hospital stay to ensure a seamless recovery.

There are two types of rhinoplasty, depending on the part of the nose you wish to reshape or resize.

Open rhinoplasty is an external method that includes making a tiny incision across the columella between the nostrils to restructure the nose. If you only want to reshape the tip of the nose, your surgeon will only cut your nasal tip.

Open techniques require utmost precision and are best for severe nasal deformities or curvatures, ethnic rhinoplasty, and revision rhinoplasty.

Closed rhinoplasty is an internal method involving incisions inside the nostrils. It’s more invasive than its open counterparts, but most patients prefer it because it leaves no visible scars. Post-op swelling also subsides quicker, and the recovery process is shorter.

Closed techniques are suitable for patients getting a nose job for the first time or coming in for minor corrections.

An innovative procedure is gaining traction these days – ultrasonic rhinoplasty.

Ultrasonic or piezo rhinoplasty involves using an ultrasonic device called piezo that emits high-speed sound waves to reshape the nasal bone without affecting nasal blood vessels and nerves. It’s minimally invasive, minimizing bruising and swelling and shortening the recovery.

Dr. Salih Onur Basat performs traditional and ultrasonic procedures seamlessly, using open and closed methods with both, but don’t take our word for it. Check out his patients’ photos and testimonials to gain an insight into his expertise.

Rhinoplasty costs: Turkey vs. the US

The average cost of rhinoplasty in the US is $5,500, but the price can reach a whopping $20,000 for complex procedures.

Rhinoplasty operations in Turkey are significantly cheaper, ranging between roughly $2,500 and $3,000.

The primary reasons for the affordable prices are Turkey’s devalued currency and low labor and living costs, so don’t worry about quality. Turkish rhinoplasty experts are on par with other top specialists worldwide.

The best part is that Turkish clinics (including ClinicPlast) offer all-inclusive packages to international patients, including hotel accommodation and transfers.

When can you expect the results?

Rhinoplasty has a relatively short recovery time, but you’ll have to wait a while to see the results.

You can expect swelling and mild discomfort for a few weeks, while the swelling will slowly subside within 3-4 weeks after your rhinoplasty surgery.

You’ll notice the final result about a year after the procedure, but you might see it around the six-month mark if you’ve had closed rhinoplasty. Still, it will take approximately 12-18 months to see the final desired outcome.
