History of Rhinoplasty

The origin of the word rhinoplasty is Greek and is formed from a combination of the German words “rhinis” and “plattein”: to shape, to shape, to shape. The origin of rhinoplasty dates back to 600 AD in Egypt and India. The first record of rhinoplasty, especially used to treat broken noses in those years, is found in the Edwin Smith Papyrus of Ancient Egypt. In the 5th century, a famous doctor named Sushruta developed nose reconstruction by taking skin from the cheek and published these achievements as the Sushruta Samhita method.

In the 15th century, rhinoplasty was inspired by ancient Indian practices. It was re-recorded by the Sicilian surgeon Branca in 1442 with a skin shift on the cheeks and forehead. Another Italian nose surgery technique, removing soft tissues in the arm area, is described by Gaspare Tagliacozzi in his book De Curtorum Chirurqia. In the 18th century, German surgeon Carl von Graefe published an article titled "Indische Technik der Nasal Reconstruction" and used the word "rhinoplasty" for the first time in this article. While rhinoplasty was first performed with incisions made by pushing the skin from the outside of the nose, forehead and cheeks, J. Roe started to perform operations inside the nose. In 1898, Jacques Joseph used pieces of bone and cartilage to give rhinoplasty its current shape.
