About the Doctor

In 2014, at the Congress of the Ministry of Health in the city of Duzce, the doctor received the main award “Doctor of the Year”. The experience of the surgeon is 15 years.

 

About Rhinoplasty

  • Hello, Dr. Engin. Our patients are wondering when the final result after rhinoplasty can be expected?

Good afternoon, Maria. The final result largely depends on the type of rhinoplasty performed. After open rhinoplasty, the final result can be expected after 12 months. If the patient underwent a closed version of the procedure, then it all depends on the structure of the skin. If the skin is thin, then the result will be visible within 3 months, if it is dense, a little longer.

  • Do you recommend closed rhinoplasty for patients who have breathing problems or need septoplasty?

There is no particular difference in the indications for closed and open rhinoplasty. However, I take into account the following factor: if the patient has already had a closed rhinoplasty, then during the second operation, I recommend that he perform the operation with an open method.

  • Tell us please how the initial consultation with the patient goes. Do you take into account the wishes of the patient to the shape of the nose?

For me, as a plastic surgeon, it is important to take into account the wishes of the patient. But to achieve a beautiful result, it is necessary to study the anatomical structure of the patient's nose, and the face as a whole and be sure to take them into account. Most patients do not always know exactly what shape they want. Someone wants a straight nose, someone wants a curved one, someone likes a natural shape. It is important for us that the nose is in harmony with the structure of the face. Therefore, we discuss all options with patients in detail and jointly make a decision.

Also, we are approached by people who have problems with nasal breathing turn to us. We also discuss different options for the procedure with them and offer the best solution.

 

  • Do you use computer simulations?

Yes, sure. Thanks to preliminary 3D modeling, the patient has the opportunity to see and evaluate the final result of the operation even before it starts.

 

About face lifting

  • Dr. Engin, many patients of Experts Medical are interested in the facelift procedure. Tell us about this procedure. How do you carry out this procedure and what results can be expected after a facelift?

During the facelift procedure, we perform a deep alignment. This means that we do not only tighten the skin. If you just stretch the skin, after 2-4 years it will sag again and scars will remain. To avoid this, we carry out a deep facelift.

 

  • What is a deep facelift?

Under our skin, there is a strong muscle tissue. During the operation, we lift, tighten and securely attach the skin to the bone. In this case, it will not go down further. Deep lifting gives a well-defined facial contour, especially in the chin and neck area. The area under the eyes, in the area of the lacrimal areas, is also well tightened. Our patients are very satisfied with the result.

  • How long does a clear contour last after a deep lifting?

According to our observations, the result of such a procedure is easily preserved for up to 20 years.

 

About mammoplasty

  • Let's talk a little about mammoplasty. What techniques do you use?

When it comes to breast augmentation, I do it at the same time as lifting. Naturally, we first discuss with the patient her preferences regarding the shape and size of the breasts. We listen to the wishes of the patient but we always take into account the anatomical features of the figure.

 

  • How to arrive for an operation with Engin Okal?
