Photogrammetric Analysis of Soft Tissue Facial Profile in Turkish Rhinoplasty Population

The aim of this study was to compare the facial photogrammetric analysis results of the Turkish population who are pleased with their facial appearance with the facial analysis data of patients who underwent rhinoplasty in order to find the most prominent objective facial measurements that lead patients to surgical correction of the nose.
Forty rhinoplasty patients (20M, 20F) and 40 people without nasal deformity (20M, 20F) were included in this study. Rhinobase software was used for photogrammetric facial analysis.
The differences in the nasofrontal angle (NFA), nasolabial angle (NLA), chin projection (CP), middle facial height (MFH), and tip deviation angle (TDA) between the patient and the control groups and between the males and females were statistically significant (P < 0.05).
The most significant differences between the control group and the patient group were crooked nose, obtuse NFA, acute NLA, chin underprojection, and increased MFH.
