Medicina 33 - MAY 2014 Armando Boccieri

"The incongruous and excessive removal of cartilaginous parts of thenasal pyramid, during a primary rhinoplasty, can lead to aesthetic and functional problems. In particular, the functional ones are due to the collapse of the structure, which no longer allows normal breathing.

Through a small incision in the columellar area, we can have a wide exposure of the nasal pyramid and use cartilage grafts taken from the auricle.

The result of revision rhinoplasty looks natural and the patient can finally obtain the overall harmony of their face."
