Performed an Ethnic Rhinoplasty technique through an Open Rhinoplasty approach. The nasal tip cartilages where refined using a cephalic strip technique and a strut graft. The tip cartilages where also refined using a shield graft and defatting of the tip. Nasal dorsal width was reduced with bilateral osteotomies and a custom carved silicone implant, SLUPimplantTM. This patient is 6 weeks post-op and very pleased.
