Before and 3 months after an augmentation rhinoplasty for a nose that had a low bridge and an over-rotated nasal tip. The bridge was augmented with an ePTFE nasal implant that was custom carved to give a higher bridge and to de-rotate and lengthen the tip. A septal cartilage graft was placed beneath the tip to help de-rotate it. On the front and base views, please note that the tip was narrowed and the nostrils were narrowed also.
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.”
