Patient underwent African-American Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery which included reduction of the nasal bony hump using a rasp and cartilage shave technique, and placement of the custom carved silastic implant for bridge augmentation. The nasal tip was re-supported and restructured using a vertical dome division technique and cephalic strip.
