This 60 year old former football player had suffered a severe nasal fracture in his youth and subsequent reconstructive nasal surgery. He presented to me with severe nasal obstruction due to complete collapse of his nasal bridge resulting in a saddle nose deformity. Using rib cartilage, I created a caudal septal extension graft, spreader grafts, a dorsal onlay graft and lateral crural strut grafts. He is shown 8 months following this revision rhinoplasty. His breathing is improved tremendously and he is very happy with the aesthetic outcome.
