Abstract

"Collapsed nasal tip," one of the most characteristic features of cleft lip nose, resembles the effect of pushing the nose tip with a finger and is especially noticeable among Asians. The authors examined a rhinoplasty technique for improving collapsed nasal tip. Using an intercartilaginous incision, the distal nasal framework, including the alar cartilages, and the caudal septum were widely exposed. A septal extension graft was fixed to the caudal septum, and the alar cartilages were precisely sutured to the extension graft using markings transferred to the extension graft. This procedure was applied to 15 Asian rhinoplasties, with all patients having substantial improvement in the shape of their nasal tip. Comparing those with and without a history of rhinoplasty, effecting a projection of the nasal tip was more difficult in patients with a history of previous rhinoplasties. The advantages of this technique include inconspicuous scarring and versatility in the modification of the nasal tip. Rhinoplasty during the growth period should be planned with consideration of future augmentation rhinoplasties.
