The beauty of the nose has become very important because all the components of the face must fit together. The importance of this beauty has increased in recent years, and therefore we are witnessing a growing number of rhinoplasties. But nasal surgery has not been so modern and advanced from the beginning. You may be interested to know the history of rhinoplasty; in order to understand how science has advanced to this point in rhinoplasty.
The history of rhinoplasty dates back to more than a thousand years ago! It can be said that the origin of rhinoplasty can be the ancient India. At that time, the punishment for those who stole was to cut off the tip or the whole of their nose! For this reason, a person named “Sushrota” repaired their noses with the help of forehead skin. At that time, events such as biting the nose by wild animals, war, etc. also caused the person to lose his entire nose. This Indian doctor operated on their noses with this technique.
Later in the 16th century, an Italian surgeon implanted the skin of his arm into a nose for someone who had lost his nose in the war, so that blood could flow through the skin into the nose. Although this method seems very harsh and even multiplier; but at that time a great change took place in the field of medical science. Many people consider this Italian surgeon to be the father of rhinoplasty in the world.
In the 19th century, an American ENT physician named John Orlando Roe in New York succeeded in operating the nose in the modern way for the first time in the world. Until that day, all nasal surgeries performed were due to defects and amputations of the face. But Dr. Roe was able to operate on the nose of someone who had lost his self-confidence due to his greatness and could no longer stand up in public. That is why this American surgeon has been officially called the father of the world’s rhinoplasty.
As you know, Iran is very popular in this field, and many people call this country as the capital of rhinoplasty in the world. So now, let’s find out about history of nose surgery in this country.
