The nose anatomy is a functional and aesthetically important organ because of its three-dimensional structure, visible location in the face region, and its connection with the respiratory tract. Aesthetic and reconstructive nasal surgery requires correction of deformations in cartilage and bone structures as well as preservation of the natural connections between all subunits. The minimal mistake made can result in functional or aesthetically bad results. In this study, the authors aimed to create an experimental nose model that help aesthetic and reconstructive nose surgery operations.
