One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries today is rhinoplasty, or popularly known as nose job. Although it was first practiced as a way to correct or reconstruct a nose which was deformed or damaged by any form of physical trauma and disease. However, when surgeons found away to use this as a way to enhance a personís physical feature, rhinoplasty became even more popular in the practice.

History of Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is considered as the one of the first types of reconstructive or plastic surgeries. It was first seen as a reconstructive surgery in India by Sushruta, the father of surgery. Although there are other types of surgeries that came before rhinoplasty, such as cataract surgery, rhinoplasty was considered as the first popular cosmetic surgery introduced by British physicians who studied in the traditional Indian rhinoplasty.

Modern Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty usually involve making an irregular incision to the columella, the fleshy, exterior-end of the nasal septum; this columellar incision is additional to the usual set of incisions for a nasal correction. In a closed rhinoplasty, the surgeon performs every procedural incision endonasally (exclusively within the nose), and does not cut the columella.

Rhinoplasty in the Philippines
From Asia to the Western Hemisphere, rhinoplasty was reintroduced in Asia, particularly in the Philippines in which many medical groups had specialized into, such as ENHANCEMENTS Skin & Cosmetic Surgery.

According to them, this can even be enhanced for greater augmentation or elevation. It may, however, involve several implants.

Popular implants used in Asian rhinoplasty include silicone, Med-Por, as well as Gore-Tex, which started the practice goretex rhinoplasty Philippines. In addition to that, autologous graft tissues, such as septum cartilage, costal or rib cartilage, as well as the auricular or ear cartilage can also be used for augmentation which will significantly reduce the risk of complications such as infection and extrusion.
