This young Virginia Beach woman was bothered by the hump of her nose and on the day of her consultation, we also noted together that her bridge was crooked and off to the left side. I explained at the time that there are a number of things we can do to make her nose straighter and it will be equally important to try to maintain her breathing as normal and so spreader grafts were planned. These take a little more time but improve the appearance and optimize breathing. They are also not visible.
At the time of her rhinoplasty, just enough dorsal hump was removed to give a very natural un-operated appearance. Spreader grafts were placed to maintain her breathing as normal. When the bones were narrowed, I was also able to make her nose straighter. She is extremely pleased with the natural, attractive shape of her nose that nicely accentuates her face.
