Desired Outcomes:
This rhinoplasty symposium will pay special attention to analysis of patient complaints/desires, use of photographs, computer imaging, measurements, and generation of an operative plan.  This course is intended to aid the participants to:

  • Identify the specific needs for the Operating Room.  What instruments are needed, type of anesthesia, sutures, injections, casting and splinting supplies, care of the patient before and after surgery
  • Determine the technical points to the approach to endonasal rhinoplasty.   Incisions, retraction, exposure, dissection, approach to the septum, tip, grafts, etc. should all be discussed
  • Determine the approach to open structure rhinoplasty including indications for the open approach, incisions and exposure, timing of the operation – when to lower the hump, approach to the septum, middle vault reconstruction, and tip support and shaping
  • Discuss the septum as the major structural unit of the dorsum.  Each attendee will be able to focus on the approach to the septum from a diagnostic standpoint and how to manage the septum with regard to creating a functional result in the setting of an aesthetic rhinoplasty
  • Identify the approach to osteotomies and how the osteotomies affect the aesthetic and functional outcome.  Special focus should be placed on the approach as well as the positioning of the osteotomies.  Discuss a variety of problems from wide noses to narrow noses to revision noses
  • Discuss techniques and grafts [spreader, tip, filler, etc.] for obtaining a functional and aesthetic result in rhinoplasty 
  • Demonstrate the principles of secondary rhinoplasty where the patient has had a previous rhinoplasty and desires further improvement.  Each attendee will be able to review key principles to achieving success in secondary rhinoplasty
