Contemporary Rhinoplasty for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

Rhinoplasty procedures have been primarily developed and studied by other surgical colleagues. Traditional techniques for cosmetic nasal surgery have included open and closed approaches to the intra-nasal structures. Only within the last two decades have oral and maxillofacial surgeons incorporated esthetic nasal surgery into their treatment planning and practice. Most commonly, the rhinoplasty has been performed in conjunction with other maxillofacial reconstructive procedures, such as orthognathic surgery. However understanding correct anatomic relationships of the external and internal nasal structures, one can quickly integrate the rhinoplasty – nasal reshaping procedure – as a stand alone procedure in their facial cosmetic surgery practice. As with most new techniques, a thorough understanding of diagnosis, criteria for patient selection, the surgical techniques, and the prompt recognition and management of potential complications, can lead to very predictable surgical success.
