Rhinoplasty is always associated with bruising, nasal swelling, nasal block and pre-orbital edema in the short postoperative period affecting the quality of life of patients negatively. Platelets play an important role in wound healing which has been proven by previous researches in other medical conditions for example: diabetes and wound healing. Those raised my interest to assess the use of PRP in rhinoplasty to assess its effect on wound healing. Platelets rich plasma (PRP) is claimed to fasten healing process reducing postoperative edema, bruising and bleeding.
