Rhinoplasty Case

This young woman felt her nose was too large.  The tip was overprojected and she had long nostrils.  There was also a bump on the bridge of the nose.  She was also noted to have a strong chin.  Photos are shown after rhinoplasty with significant reduction of tip projection and nostril length.  The dorsal hump has been reduced to produce a straight bridge as requested.  It is important that after rhinoplasty the nose fits in better with the rest of the facial features.  In her case as she has a strong projecting chin it is more attractive to leave a stronger nose to match this.  If the nose was over reduced it would appear out of balance with her chin.  There are often times when the chin is augmented with a chin implant or other procedure to increase the projection of the chin to acheive better balance  ( see case 55  ).
