BACKGROUND
One of the most common cosmetic surgeries is rhinoplasty. Iran has the highest rate of rhinoplasty, worldwide. The aim of this study was to compare the demographic characteristics of patients’ undergone rhinoplasty during two-time-period with a 10-year-interval in a single surgical center in Isfahan, Iran.
METHODS
In a retrospective study, data of the patients who were scheduled for elective rhinoplasty including their age and gender in two-time-period (2005 and 2015) were collected and compared.
RESULTS
Data of the 470 and 472 patients’ undergone elective primary rhinoplasty during 2005 and 2015 were collected, respectively. In 2005, the age range of patients was 16-51 years. Frequency of patients aged less than 20 years and more than 40 years was 27.1% and 3%, respectively. In 2015, the age range of patients was 16-59 years. Frequency of patients aged less than 20 years and more than 40 years was 12.9% and 5.6%, respectively. Patients in the two studied periods were similar regarding gender, but the mean age of patients had a significant increase during the time.
CONCLUSION
Most of our patients were female and the female to male ratio was similar in two studied periods, but it seems that rhinoplasty request is higher in older age in recent years. It is recommended to plan a trend study and more studies considering other factors to be effective in epidemiologic feature of rhinoplasty in our community.
