Does videoendoscopy provide three-dimensional vision in closed rhinoplasty?
Summary Rhinoplasty is a common procedure in cosmetic surgery all over the world. Patients desire enhancement of their facial beauty by the correction of preexisting nasal deformities. Precisely performed operations lead to better results, and enhancing technical accuracy accordingly results in more successful outcomes. Endoscopy helps us visualize the closed parts of the body with the aid of an illuminated optical device. The objective behind the present case series was to bring the advantages of open and closed rhinoplasty together by using endoscopic vision systems. A total of 312 patients with unoperated nasal deformities from private practice were operated, and videoendoscopic closed rhinoplasty was performed on each patient. Postoperative patient satisfaction was assessed using the Rhinoplasty Outcome Score; the level of satisfaction was found to be excellent. In the present case series, it was hypothesized that trocar mobility under the skin flap allows virtual binocular vision that eventually leads to stereoptic depth perception. This allows virtual three-dimensional (3D) vision on the screen of the endoscope with a regular trocar. The mobility of the tip in the transverse axis created a virtual 3D appearance. Our experiences with videoendoscopic closed rhinoplasty are shared in this report.
