Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures both by the otorhinolaryngologist who deals with cosmetic nose surgery, and by the cosmetic surgeon. The nasal pyramid represents the outer part of the nose and is formed by two bones and five cartilage intimately connected to each other and covered by a thin layer of skin and muscles. Rhinoplasty is the surgical correction of only the aesthetic defects of the nasal pyramid able to alter its shape and make the nose in harmony with the other components of the face. The surgery should not be confused with the septorinoplasty in which the surgery aims at correcting both the aesthetic and functional respiratory aspects. It is highly advisable to conduct the surgery under general anesthesia, ensuring greater safety for the patient and at the same time, allowing the surgeon to operate with greater ease. In its closed approach, no external cuts are foreseen. At the end of the surgery, nasal packing is carried out and left for at least three days and an external restraint made with band-aids and braces, left on for about a week. Twenty days after unpacking, is the minimum recovery time needed before slowly resuming to regular activities.
