Antibiotic Prophylaxis in Rhinoplasty (Nasal Surgery) - Clinical Trial
What is the Purpose of this Study?
We are doing this study to find out if it is necessary to treat people with antibiotics after nasal surgery. We want to know if antibiotics are helpful or not during the healing process after surgery.

What is Involved?
If you choose to join this study, you will:
- Be randomly assigned (like a coin flip) to 1 of 2 treatment arms in this study
-- If you are in Arm 1, you will get an antibiotic (either cefazolin or clindamycin) through IV (injected into a vein) during your surgery and not take any antibiotics on your own after surgery
-- If you are in Arm 2, you will get an antibiotic (either cefazolin or clindamycin) through IV (injected into a vein)
About a week after surgery, you will have a follow-up visit to see how you are doing. About 2 weeks after surgery, we will call you to see how you are doing.
