First Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

Rhinoplasty was first recorded by an indian physicain  Sushruta in 500 BC. He used rhinoplasty to reconstruct noses that were amputated as a punishment for crimes. The first intranasal rhinoplasty in the West was performed by John Orlando Roe in 1887.  It was later used for cosmetic purposes by Jacques Joseph in 1898 to help a patient who felt that the shape or size of his nose caused embarrassment and social discomfort. Joseph's first rhinoplasty patient was a young man whose large nose caused him such embarrassment that he felt unable to appear in public. He also employed the first nasal tip suture.  Dr Joseph is considered the father of modern facial plastic surgery.
