Nasal anatomy: the muscles and tip sensation.


The author stresses the importance of columellar sensation, nasal tip sensation, and the role of the nasalis muscles in determining the postoperative results of corrective rhinoplasty, especially as these have an influence on the "drooping tip" and the columellar base. Specific anatomic details of this area are emphasized in order to help the plastic surgeon understand better the "normal" anatomy of this region and the effects that operative procedures have on successful results if the surgeon understands especially the role of the nasalis muscles.
