This patient had a difficulty breathing after a nasal and septal fracture as well as a change to the outside appearance of the nose. She was found to have a deviated septum obstructing 90% of her airway as well as an acquired nasal deformity from the trauma.

She underwent a open rhinoplasty with septal reconstruction during which the end of the septum was detached and reattached with use of a PDS foil to straighten the tip of the nose and septum. The tip was supported with a columellar strut, the hump was reduced and osteotomies were performed to straighten the bridge. Cartilage grafts were also placed in the tip to improve tip shape.
