Background: Osteotomy is one of the major parts of a rhinoplasty operation Edema and ecchymosis most commonly appear as a result of this surgical manipulation. Different authors use different techniques to perform osteotomy The external perforating approach and the internal continuous technique are the 2 main ways of doing osteotomy in rhinoplasty In our study, we tried to compare the effects of these 2 techniques regarding edema and ecchymosis.
