Importance: To date, the impact of rhinoplasty surgery on social perceptions has not been quantified. Objective: To measure the association of rhinoplasty with observer-graded perceived attractiveness, success, and overall health. Design, Setting, and Participants: In a web-based survey, blinded casual observers viewed independent images of 13 unique patient faces before or after rhinoplasty. Delphi method was used to select standardized patient images, confirming appropriate patient candidacy and overall surgical effect...

Background: Rhinoplasty surgeons are aware that the nasal profile differs according to body position, namely, the erect position in the consultation room vs the supine position on the operating table. It is not clear whether this difference is caused by an optical illusion or skin laxity due to positional change. Objectives: To evaluate anthropometric measurements of the nose with different body positions and determine whether the supine position affects the nasal profile...

BACKGROUND: Body dysmorphic disorder among patients referring for cosmetic surgeries is a disorder that if not diagnosed by a physician, can cause irreparable damage to the doctor and the patient. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare body image concern in candidates for rhinoplasty and therapeutic surgery. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study conducted on 212 patients referring to Loghman Hospital of Tehran for rhinoplasty and therapeutic surgery during the period from 2014 through 2016...

Background: Synkinesis represents involuntary muscular movements that occur in association with voluntary contraction of other muscle groups. Oculonasal synkinesis is a rare phenomenon. Objectives: In a series of videos, the authors present clinical findings and surgical correction of oculonasal synkinesis. Methods: Two women who underwent surgical procedures to correct oculonasal synkinesis were evaluated in a prospective study. One patient presented with bilateral synkinesis after 2 previous rhinoplasties...

INTRODUCTION: Dome division or vertical dome division (VDD) is a tip plasty technique that is effective when applied appropriately to suitable patients. For 15 years, we have used VDD and made modifications as needed. In classical VDD, the dome area is cut and left to heal, but experience shows that additional components are needed to complement dome division, such as sutures or grafts. In this study, we retrospectively analysed our rhinoplasty patients in whom we used vertical alar resection (VAR) to assess the advantages and disadvantages of this technique...

IMPORTANCE: Severe dorsal deviations in crooked noses are treated by either in situ septoplasty with asymmetric spreader grafts (ISS) or extracorporeal subtotal septal reconstruction (ECS). To our knowledge, except one retrospective study, there is no other that compares the objective and subjective results of these two treatment modalities. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the aesthetic and functional outcomes of ECS and ISS in crooked noses. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: This study was carried out on 40 patients (ISS in 20 patients and ECS in 20 patients) who underwent external rhinoplasty surgery due to crooked noses between May 2014 and January 2016...

BACKGROUND: Alar cartilage can be very useful for tip and dorsum grafts. Depending on its size and thickness, it can be an important alternative for spreader grafts to improve endonasal functional deficiencies, correct deviated noses, and prevent inverted "V" deformities. Caucasian patients with bulbous tips are the most common candidates to achieve such benefits. It is easy to obtain and to frame into a desired graft. METHODS: The authors describe a surgical technique using the alar cartilages as spreader grafts...

BACKGROUND: Dexamethasone and tranexamic acid are used to decrease post-rhinoplasty periorbital edema and ecchymosis. We compared the impact of each medication separately or in combination in this regard. METHODS: A prospective, randomized triple-blinded study was undertaken on 60 patients who underwent primary open rhinoplasty. They were divided into four groups: Group D (n = 15) received 8 mg dexamethasone, group T (n = 15) received 10 mg/kg tranexamic acid, group DT (n = 15) received both 8 mg dexamethasone and 10 mg/kg tranexamic acid, and group P (n = 15) received neither medication and served as the placebo control group...

Importance: Postoperative pain at the donor site is a common morbidity following autologous costal cartilage grafting. Objective: To evaluate postoperative pain at the donor site after the use of a muscle-sparing costal cartilage harvesting technique compared with a muscle-cutting technique using electrocautery. Design, Setting, and Participants: Designed as a controlled trial without randomization, this prospective, comparative cohort study was conducted between January 1, 2016, and March 31, 2017...

The aim of this study was to compare objective and subjective functional results of septorhinoplasty with subjective aesthetic results. A prospective study was performed including global and subgroup analyses (primary versus secondary septorhinoplasty). Three instruments were used to evaluate pre- and postoperative results: rhinomanometry for the objective functional analysis, the Nasal Symptom Obstruction Evaluation (NOSE) scale for the subjective functional analysis, and the Rhinoplasty Outcome Evaluation (ROE) scale for the subjective aesthetic analysis...

The open rhinoplasty technique facilitates accurate visualization of deformities and aesthetic disharmonies in addition to visualization for precise correction. Through a series of videos, this case represents the evolution of the open rhinoplasty technique, demonstrating a wide range in complexity of maneuvers to achieve the desired correction in rhinoplasty. The video demonstrates reduction of the nasal dorsum by way of a component dorsal reduction, reconstitution of the cartilaginous midvault, and suture techniques for reshaping the nasal tip...
