Rhinoplasty – The Structural Approach – Part 4

Learn how the nasal tip underscores the importance of the structural philosophy in rhinoplasty. The attachment of the tip to the bottom edge of the septum is a very important consideration.

2 – Rebuild things you weaken
3 – Proportion of the nose is more important than the size
