Alar Spreader Grafts Still Used to Correct Nasal Pinch and Alar Collapse?
I am researching revision rhinoplasty and want to make sure I have the correct procedure done to fix my pinched tip, noticeable alar creases and breathing problem. My original nose had a wide nasal tip, no hump. Tip has been reduced too much. Am I correct and is this problem called "external valve collapse"? I found two techniques to fix this: 1) alar batten grafts 2) (older technique?) alar spreader grafts (see pic). Which one is the best to correct my problem?
