On the first day, the patient is relaxed with cold application to the face (Hilotherapy for the first 3-4 hours and then, cold compression) and with painkillers.

Preparing for any surgery can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience. However, with the right guidance and preparation, the process can be much easier to handle.

It is also important to have a clear understanding of the desired outcome of your surgery, and to communicate this clearly with your surgeon during your pre-operative consultation In the weeks leading up to the surgery, you should follow our surgeon’s instructions regarding diet, medications, and lifestyle changes.
After rhinoplasty surgery, taking care of yourself is essential to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery. You should avoid strenuous activities and exercise for at least two weeks after the surgery and avoid blowing your nose for several weeks.You may also experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the days following your surgery.Your surgeon may recommend pain management medication or cold compresses to help alleviate these symptoms. Additionally, it is important to maintain good nutrition and hydration during the recovery process in order to support optimal healing.
The rhinoplasty recovery process can take several weeks to several months, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the patient’s individual healing process. After the initial recovery period, you should be able to resume normal activities gradually, although it’s essential to avoid activities that may affect the nose’s healing process. The recovery process following rhinoplasty surgery can vary depending on the individual patient and the extent of the procedure performed. Generally, patients can expect to wear a splint on their nose for a week or two after surgery, with most of the swelling and bruising subsiding within the first few weeks. However, it can take several months for the full results of the surgery to become apparent. During this time, it is important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions closely, attend all follow-up appointments, and avoid any activities or behaviors that could compromise your healing process. With proper care and patience, you can expect to achieve a beautiful and natural-looking result from your rhinoplasty surgery.

what I see I’m really happy about

I was always not happy with the shape of my nose but never had the strength to change something because I was afraid that it would change all my face. Finally with 41 this year I decide to do it and while I was searching for the right Chirurg I found Dr. Guncel Ozturk. When I saw his work it looks really natural without having a big change I decide to do it.
So far it’s the second week and I still can’t see the proper results but so far what I see I’m really happy about. Dr. Guncel Ozturk was really helpful and professional so I didn’t had any doubts about his work. Rumeysa and the team was very helpful and answered all my questions.

day 5, my nose already looks amazing

Deciding to get a rhinoplasty was a big choice for me. I didn't need one cosmetically, but could use it. My main concern was my breathing, I had a slight deviated septum and I would snore in my sleep. I am also an Athlete so, my breathing is important for performance. Dr.Go had already performed rhinoplasty's on a few of my family members who were extremely satisfied with their experience and results. It made it easy for me to decide to go with him after seeing how great theirs was done. Not to mention, he's literally an Artist. He's not just a Doctor, he's talented and creative, he's wisdom + creativity makes a GREAT plastic surgeon. He is well versed in what is aesthetically pleasing to the human eye. His clinic is beautiful, its like a mini museum. He has his artwork/sculptures all around. I was proud that he was my surgeon when I saw all his artwork. He himself is a understanding, empathetic, and hard working individual. You are not only paying for a procedure, but an experience, you are paying for an Artist, not just a surgeon. That is the difference between him and other Drs. I was really nervous and scared the morning of my surgery, I almost backed out but he came to talk to me, and give me the reassurance I needed. He was very involved in the whole process. Today is day 5, and my nose already looks freaking amazing. It's obviously swollen but, you can just tell the final result will be insanely beautiful. Also, your nose will look 100x better than the 3D simulation, you can only simulate so much. You have to trust the process. I am so glad I came here from California to get my nose done. He did such a great job. I will be recommending him to anyone I know thats interested in a plastic surgery. Thank you Dr.Go and his team. You guys made this worth it. :)

masculine just as I wanted it and looks natural

It was very important to me that my nose remained masculine and natural and harmonised with my face. During the consultation, Dr. Guncel immediately recognised what needed to be done and answered all the questions I asked.

I already like my new nose, it is masculine just as I wanted it and looks natural. The tip of my nose is still swollen but Dr. Guncel said that the swelling will go down after 3 months. I can't wait to see the final result.

The whole team is very helpful. They have always answered my questions after the surgery relatively quickly and even on weekends! Great service. Thank you very much.

Healing has been nice and easy

I am extremely pleased with the whole experience, it has been beyond my expectations.
Initially I got in touch with Dr’s assistant Rumeysa and all my answers were answered and all the uncertainties cleared. Just like all the other reviews here I was very impressed with Dr Guncel’s professional and yet very easy, pleasant approach to his work, and most importantly artistic touch he has to make sure my expectations match the results. There was no need for long consultation as he very quickly understood what sort of change I was after. I must say that the facilities, both- Dr Guncel’s office and hospital where he operates was a top quality! The kind treatment I received from the nurses after I have had the surgery was very comforting and felt in ease. It is 4 weeks for me now post surgery and healing has been nice and easy. I know I have to patient with the final results to be seen ( as it takes time for swelling to go down) but I am already very very happy with the results that Dr Guncel Ozturk has given me. If you’re after a natural and beautiful result and an excellent service- look no further!
Thank you Dr Guncel and the whole team involved! Keep up with the great work!

The result was so satisfying

It's been 10 days since my rhinoplasty surgery. The whole process went so smoothly and the result was so satisfying for me that I would like to thank my doctor Op. Dr. Guncel Ozturk and his team once again. I'm still surprised that he brought a big nose like mine into this form by closed rinoplasty. I'm really curious about the surgery process, I wish I had the opportunity to watch my surgery. I congratulate the whole team

A shape that suits my features

I did rhinoplasty with Dr Guncel Ozturk. I loved my experience and I’m so glad that I chose him.

Starting from answering all my questions, to the amazing treatment at the hospital, to finally the result!

I admired the dr credibility and talent! I asked him for a certain nose shape and he recommended for me not to, instead he gave me a shape that best suits my features and gives an overall natural look.

All my friends and family was shocked how I didn’t get bruises under my eyes post surgery! Apparently he has some magic tricks! ;)

I would highly recommend him for people who’s looking for a great treatment and natural results.

çok te?ekkürler!

P.S. I loved his clinic and his sculptures!
