Rhinoplasty Spreader grafts
Thank you for your question.Just putting in spreader grafts without first attempting to identify the cause of the nasal deviation or asymmetry is not the correct approach. Causes for nasal asymmetry and deviation are numerous:- septum, nasal bones, asymmetric lower lateral cartilages, large anterior nasal spine etc.A good surgeon would first of all identify the cause for the nasal asymmetry, and then proceed accordingly.Hope that helps.
