Distortive effects of short distance photographs on nasal appearance: The selfie effect
(Rutgers University) Nasal distortions in selfies taken at close range are prompting people to seek out surgeons to make their noses smaller. Such was the experience of Rutgers facial plastic surgeon Boris Paskhover, who worked with a Stanford mathematician to develop a model to show patients how much their nose becomes distorted in close-up photos. The model is published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.

We present 2 cases of lacrimal injury after osteotomy in rhinoplasty and present the steps to managing such an injury. These cases were finally treated with endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy. We concluded that osteotomies must be at least 3 mm from the medial canthus or medial to the line from the medial canthus to the alar base. Also, it is recommended that osteotome blades be sharpened before each osteotomy.
