P1. Patient wished to correct droopy nasal tip and to improve overall aesthetic appearance of the nose. The operation was done using closed approach rhinoplasty.
P2. Previous trauma has caused a supratip depressioon, which is accenuated by a dorsal hump. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed to fill supratip region with septal cartilage graft and remove the dorsal hump.
P3. Deviation of the nose with no history of previous trauma. Underlying condition in those cases is facial asymmetry. Those with one side of the face smaller than the ohter will often have their nose lean toward the smaller side. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed to correct the deviation. In addition, small dorsal reduction and shortening of the nose was performed.
P4. Patient wished a smaller nose and a more feminine nasal profile. Combined approach was performed to remove dorsal hump, shorten the nose and raise the tip up. As most women desire a smaller more feminine nose, such reduction rhinoplasty is one of the most common types of nose reshaping.
P5. Severely deviated nasal septum can cause asymmetric nostrils and deviation of the nasal bridge. Endonasal approach was used to restore symmetric nostrils and straighten the nasal bridge.
P6. Patient wished to remove dorsal hump, correct hanging columella and improve aesthetic appearance of the tip. The operation was done using closed approach rhinoplasty. Postoperative photos are taken only 10 days after surgery. Careful dissection during surgery and use of closed approach helps to avoid severe swelling and hematomas.
P7. Patient wished to correct droopy nasal tip and to remove dorsal hump. The operation was done using closed approach.
P8. Patient has combined nasal deformity, characterized by external nose deviation, dorsal hump and droopy nasal tip. The open approach rhinoplasty was performed to straighten the nose, to remove the dorsal hump and to raise the nasal tip.
P9. Posttraumatic deviation of the nasal septum and external nose. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed.
P10. This young woman was concerned with her crooked nose with large dorsal hump. The nose looked too long and she had hanging columella. Her dorsal hump was removed, nose shortened and straightened. The nasal tip was refined and rotated upward at the same time. Open approach.
P11. Nose deformity due to previous septal abscess. Reconstruction of the nasal septum and alar cartilages was performed using rib cartilage grafts, dorsal hump removed and narrowing of the nostrils and bony pyramid was subsequently performed.
P12. Revision rhinoplasty. Patient wished a smaller nose and to improve aesthetic shape of the nose. Open approach.
P13. Deviation of the nose. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed to straighten the nose.
P14. Severe posttraumatic nose deformity. The nasal dorsum was augmented, the nasal tip raised and its projection increased using rib cartilage grafts.
P15. Bony and cartilaginous dorsal hump. The hump was removed using closed rhinoplasty.
P16. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed to remove pronounced bony hump and to raise the nasal tip.
P17. Severe nose deformity due to trauma suffered during childhood. The cadaveric bone graft, placed for dorsal augmentation during previous operation, appears to be insufficient. The reoperation was performed using open approach. Previously used augmentation material was replaced by patient’s own rib cartilage graft. Diced rib cartilage was used to add fullness also to the chin area. In addition, tip surgery was performed to improve its aesthetics.
P18. Deviation of the nasal tip together with small bony and cartilaginous hump. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed to straighten the nose and reduce the dorsaal hump.
P19. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed to remove pronounced hump (mainly at bony part of the nasal dorsum) and to improve overall aesthetic appearance of the nose.
P20. Closed approach rhinoplasty was performed to remove dorsal hump, shorten the nose and rotate upward the nasal tip.
