Patients with initial rhinoplasty by the first author were assigned to group 1 (n=102) and the patients who were operated by the other surgeons were in the group 2 (n=90). Data were collected using an author made checklist divided into three parts: overall demographic questions, questions about the patients’ aesthetic and functional complaints and objective evaluation by the surgeon.
Results: The most frequent reported complaints led to their current rhinoplasty were about the nasal tip with 161 cases (83.9%), upper nasal part with 98 cases (51%) and mid-nose (middle nose) with 81 cases (42.2%). Besides, respiratory problem was observed in 58 patients (30.2%). Surgeon's skill was significantly associated with occurrence of these two complaints; so that these two complaints were more common in group2 than group1 (P value <0.05).
