Annual Meeting | President's Message
Dear Members of the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe,
we wish you all the best in these difficult times and trust we will soon be able to communicate to you the new dates when the Annual Meeting of the Society will be held.
Who We Are
The goal of our society is education and exchange of experience. The intention of the Founding Members was that the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe acts as an educational platform for its members, to allow specialized members who have a strong clinical, teaching, and research interest in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic rhinoplasty to exchange and develop their ideas and to work out problems in a common forum of mutual respect and collegiality.
What we offer
The Rhinoplasty Society of Europe mission is to provide education in aesthetic and functional rhinoplasty The Annual Meeting provides a forum for invited and submitted papers in a peer-reviewed format

Primary rhinoplasty involves removing excess bone or cartilage, augmenting deficient areas and altering the internal nasal structures, thereby improving the structural support of the nose. The final changes may be subtle or dramatic, depending on the needs of the patient. Rhinoplasty can be considered one of the most complex and challenging procedures in cosmetic surgery. The trends over the past decade have shifted away from reduction or division of the cartilage framework of the nose to conserving the native anatomy and augmenting deficient areas to restore balance and structural support.
Primary rhinoplasty refers to first – time nasal surgery, whether for cosmetic or functional purposes, as opposed to secondary rhinoplasty, which indicates the patient has had one or more previous rhinoplasty surgeries.
Primary Rhinoplasty has two major approaches : CLOSED (internal approach) and OPEN (external approach).
In the Closed Rhinoplasty, the nose is approached via an internal incision ( no external visible scars). The surgeon works on the internal nasal structures through this approach. In the Open Rhinoplasty, a very small external incision is made on the columella to open the nose. Most scars resulting from the open rhinoplasty are usually favourable, very rarely conspicuous. This technique allows the surgeon to visualise most areas of the nose and facilitates the procedure, especially in secondary and difficult cases. This approach gives the surgeon a three-dimensional view of the nose, which helps to reorganise the nasal structures.
Rhinoplasty (commonly referred to as a “nose job “) is a cosmetic surgery that involves resizing or reshaping the nose. Airway problems due to the deviation of skeletal structures are also be corrected at this operation. Over the past decade, rhinoplasty has become one of the most commonly performed aesthetic surgeries in Europe and the world.
