Tongue and Groove Technique for Rhinoplasty?
Hello, I had a primary where the tongue and groove technique was used. This left me with a retracted columella, a flat infra-tip lobule, and the curve of my upper lip has been diminished. A revision surgeon I consulted with recently said that this technique is not one that is used very often for this reason and all of the surgeons that I have consulted with intend to release it as part of the revision. My question is this: if this technique has so many drawbacks, why use it at all? Thanks.
