Rhinoplasty – Case 387
This pleasant woman desired a smaller nose and her bump gone. Typically a bump can be seen best on a profile view, however in her case it is most evident on the frontal and three quarter views.
Because her skin is not thick, her incision under her nose (called the open approach) is difficult to find.
Her nostrils have changed in shape due to the de-projection of her tip. Although they usually become shorter on profile view, they can also become wider, although this fortunately shows up only on basal (or worm’s) view.
These before and after photos show a typical result by the rhinoplasty surgeon Dr Oakley Smith from Toronto.
