The History of the Nose Job
Rhinoplasty dates back to the 6th century B.C. The earliest recorded schnoz surgery happened in ancient India. It was developed by Ayurvedic physician Sushruta. The Indian physician outlined the new rebuilding method for a nose which was called the forehead flap. Any patient who may have lost their nose as a criminal punishment then the surgical procedure was performed. It wasn’t till the 16th century a suphilis outbreak hit Europe that left people with a disfigured and rotting nose.
Reconstructive rhinoplasty was then performed in a way of disguising the symptoms and counteracting the disease.
New surgery for reconstructive rhinoplasty was introduced by Gaspare Tagliacozzi an Italian surgeon which was the use of the skin of the upper arm of the patient. This required the patient to strap their nose to their upper arm for 2 weeks. This surgery technique had a lot of downturns as in the colder climate which may have seen the nose fall off or turn purple. This method was not used anymore in turn.
In the late 19th century, aesthetic rhinoplasty came into effect. This method was there to fix noses that were intact instead of replacing them. In 1887, as a patient, if you suffered from stress and emotions from having a pug nose, John Orlando Roe an American otolaryngologist documented the 1st modern rhinoplasty. This technique saw him perform the cosmetic rhinoplasty nose surgery in the inside of the patient’s nose, to eliminate scarring externally and to also ensure his work was done in secret. In Berlin, a German Jewish surgeon called Jacques Joseph performed a similar nose technique.
Many years following, to enhance, improve, and augment facial appearance gave way for many aesthetic services which included paraffin injections from doctors in the beauty industry which would help enhance and fix the nose appearance.
In today’s world, this type of surgery is becoming increasingly popular and getting more common. A nose job is a surgical procedure that can change the shape, function, and appearance of the nose. Depending on a patient’s desired results or circumstances, the rhinoplasty surgery can be performed either open and closed. Open surgery means an incision is made which is small on the underside of the nose which can cause scarring and closed surgery is making an opening on the inside of the nose.
In the US, surgery of the nose is the 3rd most popular type of surgery behind liposuction and boob jobs. Noses are the most recognizable feature on a face.
Previously rhinoplasty, often produced what looked more like nose jobs than actual noses. It is less common now as techniques for surgery have advanced. Patients nowadays want their nose more natural-looking. After surgery, it should look as if they were born with the nose.
