Abstract:
In this article, we give an overview of safe and consistent techniques for nasal tip surgery. A change in the morphology of the tip has an impact on the profile of the face. A knowledge of facial proportions is therefore important when performing rhinoplastic surgery. We prefer an external approach because it provides the best overview and because the possibility of bimanual working makes manipulation of the lower lateral cartilages easier. The techniques described here can be used to alter the nasal tip in a controllable way.
