Aesthetic structural nasal augmentation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article addresses the author's preferred technique in the reconstruction of moderate and severe saddle nasal deformities. The prevailing concept is the provision of adequate structural support for the overlying nasal soft tissue coverage for an aesthetically pleasing outcome. All reconstructive efforts are undertaken via the external rhinoplasty approach. Detailed descriptions of the individual steps involved in the reconstructive sequence are included. Representative patient cases are included to demonstrate the versatility of techniques.
