Chisels, Surgical, Nasal, Rhinoplasty
Definition : Nasal surgical chisels designed to cut and shape cartilage of the nose during plastic surgery procedures (i.e., rhinoplasty). These chisels are typically a handheld, manual, flat-blade instrument with a cutting edge that is ribbed, guarded, and beveled on one side at the distal end and an integral cross (T-shaped) handle. The flat part of the instrument between the distal and proximal end is frequently serrated to provide good finger grip. A variety of rhinoplasty chisels of different sizes and shapes are available, including chisels to remove the bony dorsal hump.
