Lecture: Novel Concepts in Contouring the Nasal Tip
Objective(s): Discuss new concepts in nasal tip contouring that focus on favorable and unfavorable shadowing of the nasal tip. Less emphasis will be placed on narrowing the nasal tip and more emphasis will be placed on reorienting existing nasal tip structures and placement of cartilage grafts to create a favorable tip contour. Techniques such as dome sutures, tip grafts and alar rim grafts will be discussed and demonstrated using video and illustrative patient cases. Repositioning the cephalically oriented lateral crura with lateral crural strut grafts will be discussed as well. The objective of this presentation is to convey the importance of creating a normal yet aesthetically pleasing nasal tip that is not overly narrowed or pinched.
