Aesthetic reconstructive rhinoplasty.


Aesthetic reconstructive rhinoplasty by definition means the creation of a nose that blends happily with its face and enjoys patent bilateral airways. This goal requires the construction of a delicate but dependable support to the bridge and tip, adequate viable lining, and cover of the correct color and texture. All this should be accomplished without distracting donor scars. It is important that the bridge and tip stand proudly, the alae an columella contours be sculptured, and the scars lie unnoticeable in the regional unit lines camouflaged by light and shadows.
