Level: Comprehensive                    Organization: Didactic
Desired outcomes:
The following principles embody my rhinoplasty philosophy and will be covered in the course by lecture and video demonstration:

  • The most common patient motivation for secondary rhinoplasty is an iatrogenic deformity from previous surgeries, the primary surgeon must therefore use techniques that minimize the chance of creating secondary deformities
  • Secondary rhinoplasty deformities are not limitless: they form only three patterns
  • All key planning decisions can be made preoperatively from the nasal surface
  • Only four common anatomical variants determine the success of any rhinoplasty, these four variants directly explain all three secondary deformity patterns
  • Airway maintenance and correction should be part of each nasal surgery, and there are only three proven techniques to solve airway problems in most patients
  • The great majority of rhinoplasty deformities can be corrected with only one of two operative strategies: radix, spreader, alar wall, and tip grafts; or dorsal, alar wall, and tip grafts
  • Effective patient selection is mandatory: Body image is complex and can be impacted by a history of childhood trauma (abuse or neglect)
