Before and after an ethnic reduction rhinoplasty for a large nasal bump (dorsal hump) and a severely droopy (ptotic) tip. Please note the changes that were desired in the blue tracing. The tip was lifted to a degree that would still maintain a masculine profile, but not too much to make the nose look feminine.
The tracing on the right is made from the preoperative computer imaging done during the consultation. Dr. Pontell creates this tracing which he uses as a guide during surgery to accomplish the patient’s goals. This allows Dr. Pontell to get as close to the desired result as possible. Please compare the desired profile in the tracing to the actual “after photo.”
