Abstract

The decision to perform nasal resection follows a comprehensive analysis of the aesthetic objective depending on the anatomic and artistic criteria. Fear of leaving visible scars leads many surgeons to hesitate vis-à-vis the indications. However, this surgical technique can be very useful during rhinoplasty. The patient should always be informed preoperatively of the possibility of cutaneous resection of the nostrils and the type of scar than can ensue. It is important to know the foreseeable elements of nasal resection in order to provide a more systematic approach to routine rhinoplasty.
