The wide nose before surgery did not fit this patients face. Follow the line from the nasal bridge to the tip of the nose in the before and after surgery photographs. Examine the lines at the level along the juncture of the nose and the face, and the lines at the top of the nose. Rhinoplasty required reduction and blending of the various elements to produce a result that better fit her face.

She had some difficulty breathing through both her nose. Narrowing a nose can worsen nasal obstruction unless internal deformities are addressed. In this patient, spreader grafts opened the constrictions along the roof of the nasal passages. Septal deviations that would have obstructed the nose were straightened. Other septal cartilage was used as a donor site for the grafts used in the nasal sculpture.
