This procedure begins as a typical open septorhinoplasty, with careful separation of the upper lateral cartilages from the septum and without disruption of the nasal mucosa.
This information allows us to determine which type of surgery--open septorhinoplasty, turbinoplasty, external valve surgery with alar batten grafts, and/or internal valve surgery with spreader grafts with or without composite skin/cartilage grafts--is likely to be most successful.
We performed open septorhinoplasty and placed a batten graft on the left and spreader grafts bilaterally.
In those cases when the swelling did not abate after 8 days (and thus the contour of the nose could not be assessed), reduction was ruled out and the patient instead underwent septoplasty or septorhinoplasty at a later date.
