Patient and Surgical Information
Persian female desiring softening of her ethnic nose and correction of a deviated septum. Vertically-oriented lower lateral cartilages were identified on her preoperative exam, which would cause extreme alar narrowing and nasal obstruction following rhinoplasty if her ala weren’t reinforced by repositioning the cartilage to a more horizontal direction and/or alar rim grafts. Dr. Paul Nassif performed rhinoplasty surgery on this patient in his Beverly Hills office. The post surgery photos demonstrate a petite nose which is what our patient desired.
Post-op Timeline: 2 years
Technique: Primary Rhinoplasty
