Rhinoplasty at the Global Crossroads

Arch Facial Plast Surg. 2009;11(6):421-423. doi:10.1001/archfacial.2009.90

In Turkey, rhinoplasty is the most common operation in the field of facial plastic surgery and has gained increasing popularity especially within the past decade. There are many reasons for this increase. First, traditional Turkish noses are usually big, with humps of varying degrees. Second, image has become very important, especially among younger adults (those aged 18 to 25 years). Third, the number of surgeons performing this operation in Turkey has increased exponentially within the past decade. Fourth, the costs of the operation have also decreased, so rhinoplasty is no longer an operation only for rich people in Turkey.
