Objectives: In our study, we aimed to examine the effect of PRP on anti-inflammatory findings in septorhinoplasty (SRP). Method: One hundred sixty patients who underwent open septorhinoplasty (SRP) were divided into two groups: the control group and PRP groups. A total of 3 ccs of PRP was obtained by subjecting the blood through two separate centrifugation processes. At the end of the SRP operation, 3ccs of PRP was injected into the patients' osteotomy sites in the PRP group and the same amount of saline was administered to the patients in the control group. Pain, periorbital edema and ecchymosis scores of the patients were recorded on the 2nd, 8th, 24th hours, 3rd, 7th and 10th days after the operation. Besides, Rhinoplasty Outcome Evaluation (ROE) satisfaction questionnaire was applied to the patients before the operation and at the postoperative third month. Results: In the PRP group, periorbital edema at the 8th, 24th, and third days was less compared to the control group; pain scores were also significantly lower at the 8th and 24th hours. Conclusion: It was thought that PRP could reduce postoperative pain and periorbital edema in SRP surgeries. Further comprehensive studies may support the use of PRP in SRP surgeries.
