Widening a Narrow Nasal Tip
There are many ways to widen a nasal tip that is too narrow. The specific technique used will depend on the patient's unique anatomy, and in revision rhinoplasty, what has been done to the tip in the past. One of my personal favorite ways to widen a tip involves placing a "subdomal graft" using the patient's own cartilage followed by a number of different tip defining suture techniques. I like the subdomal graft especially on thin skinned patients as one is unlikely to see the graft edges through the skin.
