A 22 year old girl from Mumbai visited our hospital with complaint of broad and bulky nose. She was very unhappy with her nose and had inquired about her nose with a local surgeon who referred her to our hospital. She requested for a narrow nose with a sharp tip.
Maxillofacial surgeon Dr.S.M.Balaji examined the patient. She had a broad dorsal base with bulky nasal tip. He planned to correct the nose by closed rhinoplasty technique. The lateral nasal cartilages were removed by transcartilaginous incision. Lateral osteotomy was done bilaterally.
The patient was overjoyed with the results and expressed her joy to the surgeon.
