Abstract

This is a systematic review of the available literature and our own personal experience regarding the optimal management of the rhinoplasty patient. The routine utilization of nasal splinting, casting and perioperative antibiotics is supported. The management of a number of common early complications is also discussed. Meticulous technique based on sound structural principles and coupled with preoperative planning and attention to wound care will result in a favorable outcome in most individuals undergoing rhinoplasty.
