Abstract:   (1471 Views)
The achievement of best outcome in rhinoplasty is very important for both of the patients and plastic surgeons. Since the skin characteristics (e.g. nasal thickness and sebaceous hypertrophy) has clear role on the result, many related interventions have been proposed in recent decades to gain an appropriate result. Accordingly, isotretinoin firstly introduced to treat some type of acne, has been suggested controversially to be used in rhinoplasty. Although the early uncertain studies implied on its side effects, the recent more powerful studies and evidences indicate that isotretinoin is remarkably effective to obtain proper outcome. Nevertheless, its prescription to patients need to be evaluated and personalized. More discussion on this regard are presented in the text.
