Here, a case having nasal tip asymmetry with lack of nasal tip support, hence, the atrophy of medial crus is presented.
It is important to maintain and/or establish the stabilization between the medial crus and caudal septum to prevent a ptotic, underprojected nasal tip, acute nasolabial angle, and/or retracted columella.
In this study, the medial crus deformities were comprised of four divisions, three gaps and one segmental loss.
Congenital deficiency of the medial crus. Turk J Plast Surg 2019;27:87-90.
The results of dissections showed that 92.9 % of the left GSN and 86.2 % of the right GSN were close to the medial crus of diaphragm while 93.3 % of the left LSN and 87.0 % of the right LSN were close to the medial crus of diaphragm when the splanchnic nerves passed through the diaphragm.
It can be explained by the fact that the position GSN passes through the diaphragm is near the medial crus of diaphragma, while the LSN's the medial diaphragmatic crus.

The advancement should be directed toward the anterior edge of the medial crus in order to avoid an unnatural tucking of the nasal sill into the nostril.
Dissection is facilitated by proper retraction with a small, double-prong retractor, which is used to evert the ipsilateral medial crus. The caudal septum is then freed from the anterior maxillary crest (figure 3), and the inferior edge is trimmed 2 mm and swung toward the midline.
