Removing Dorsal Hump Without a Tip Strut or Graft?
Once the hump has been removed will my tip droop more, or is it possible to do without a columella strut to hold the tip up? What are the benefits either way?
Tip struts are used if tip has poor support
Hump reduction alters the nasal profile
No columellar strut is probably needed
Tip and strut grafts are not always necessary.
It's about balance
Columella struts are used to support the nasal tip
