CASE STUDY #1:
This very pretty woman was interested in removing the bump on the bridge of her nose and rotating the drooped tip. She also wanted more tip definition and refinement. She wanted it to look natural and complement the other facial features she has, such as her eyes and lips.
Dr. Miller’s assessment:
For this case, my plan involved reducing the dorsal hump and then rotating, narrowing, and projecting the tip. Specifically, my surgical plan included dorsal reduction and septal harvest for grafting.
Description of surgery:
To ensure the best possible aesthetic results, I lowered the dorsal bridge with a powered instrument to ensure a clean and smooth bone/cartilage transition zone. This resulted in a slight disparity of dorsal width that was resolved using spreader grafts harvested from the patient’s own septum cartilage. The tip was attended to next. Utilizing a tongue-in-groove technique to change the nose’s tip rotation and projection, the patient’s medial and intermediate curral cartilages were slid up and over the caudal (bottom portion) septum. Finally, the ever so subtle disparity in premaxillary projection was treated with a plumping graft just lateral to the right pyriform aperture.
