Rhinoplasty

This patient is a woman in her late teens who wanted improvement in her nose. Specifically, she did not like the dorsal hump and wanted the nose to be narrower.

She underwent open rhinoplasty with reduction of the dorsal hump and narrowing of the dorsum and tip.

The most obvious difference after surgery is seen in the lateral view which illustrates the reduction of the dorsal hump. More subtle is the narrowing of the nasal tip and dorsum seen in the anterior view. Because she required an open rhinoplasty, there is a faint scar between the nostrils. Over the next few months, it should fade completely.

Rhinoplasty

This patient is a woman in her teens who wanted the hump in her nose reduced. She also complained of difficulty breathing through the nose.

She underwent open rhinoplasty with reduction of the dorsal hump. Spreader grafts were also placed to open the nasal airway some.

The hump was successfully reduced as evidenced by the pre- and postoperative photos. When pressing hard on certain parts of the nose, she is able to feel a small amount of irregularity were the bones were surgically moved as part of the dorsal hump reduction. This is normal, and although it can usually be felt, it is rarely visible.
