Narrowing a Wide Nose | Rhinoplasty

This is a patient that we narrowed a wide nose – now she also had a dorsal hump present so I shaved down the dorsal hump. It’s mandatory that you have to narrow the nasal bones to prevent this flattop open-roof nasal deformity so we narrow the bridge line we narrow the nasal bones and the corresponding upper lateral cartilages in the mid portion of the nose and then the tip cartilages themselves can be refined a little bit by just a very conservative removal of cartilage in that tip that can just create a little bit of feminization or a little bit of refinement so it’s not so bulky so wide and so bulbous and that nose then is better fit with their facial features and it just blends in rather than being the most prominent thing on their face.
