Rhinoplasty – Case 357
Surgery on the nasal tip always involves modifying the cartilage. Most often the tip is wider than desired. Sometimes the cartilages are too rounded. When the nasal skin is thin, usually the edges of the plates of cartilage can be seen.
This woman’s changes focused mainly of her wide and round tip. As her tip was able to be significantly narrowed, this allowed narrowing of her bridge to maintain harmony. The size of her nose changed very little, it’s the shape of her nose where the improvements are seen.
These before and after photos show a typical result by the rhinoplasty surgeon Dr Oakley Smith from Toronto.
