Patients contemplating undergoing rhinoplasty may use the internet to search for information. YouTube (http://www.YouTube.com) is the most widely used video platform on the internet and is increasingly used to disseminate health information by educational institutions, for-profit companies, and others. Individual users posting videos of their experience of health conditions or surgical procedures on video blogs, or vlogs, have become a popular and influential presence on the website. This study aims to objectively assess the quality and reliability of information on YouTube pertaining to rhinoplasty.
