Repositioning upper lateral cartilages/mid nose?
When the upper lateral cartilages are inverted, concave, or displaced off of the nasal bones, spreader graft placement is the best alternative for repairing them. Spreader grafts are composed of patient's own cartilage harvested from inside the nasal septum and placed underneath the concave upper lateral cartilage in the mid--portion of the nose. For more information, diagrams of how it's performed, and many before and after examples, please see the link and the video below
