Case of the Month – September 2018 – Rhinoplasty Results Evolution

The patient is a young woman who had external valve collapse (her nostrils could not support strong inspiration) as well as a dorsal hump.  She had a rhinoplasty with septum harvested for cartilage grafts to support the tip and nostrils like  a tripod.  She had improved breathing with a structurally stable nose as well as less deviation and reduced dorsal hump.

Her 6 month results were initially presented as a case of the month.  She is now 18 months post op and demonstrates improved aesthetics as the result matures.  This is consistent with many nose surgeries.
