ISTANBUL (AA) – Facial expression in rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, should be protected, according to a Turkish expert on otorhinolaryngology.

In a statement, Erkan Soylu, an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist at Medipol Mega University Hospital, said facial structure is the most important element that determines the physical appearance of the person and everyone is unique and different.

“Since we cannot change the whole face of the patient, of course we must make the nose compatible with the patient’s face,” he noted.

Saying there were examples of surgeries in the past that would completely change facial expression to make “ideal facial expressions,” Soylu highlighted that in modern rhinoplasty, it is essential to preserve facial expression while improving the patient’s nose aesthetically and functionally.

“So approaches like trying to equalize the nasal bases to the distance between the two eyes in all patients, trying to equalize the nose length to the forehead distance without considering the facial features of the patient are a huge mistake,” he said.

Each patient’s nose should be designed in harmony with their own face, Soylu stressed.

“I must say that the definitions of the ‘ideal face’ in some books (in the rhinoplasty field) are completely utopian. Each face is unique, and the nose to be made on it should be unique and different as well,” he added.
