Difference Between Open Roof and Inverted V Deformity
Open roof and inverted V deformity in rhinoplasty
- It sounds like you may have an open roof, which is the gap that you would feel when you move your finger from the area between the eyebrows and down toward the tip, in the middle of the bridge
- An inverted V is something that you would feel along the sides of the nose as well as the middle of the bridge of the nose
- The good news is that you can perform an osteotomy with a spreader graft
- Sometimes, when an osteotomy is incomplete, it does not move inwards completely (which is another cause of an open roof)
