Rhinoplasty is known to be one of the most difficult procedures in facial plastic surgery. For instance, when the dorsal hump is reduced, we avoid over reducing it so as to strike a balance between dorsum and nose tip. When dealing with bulbous nose tips we avoid excessive removal of supporting structures which result in “surgical look”
These surgical procedures are approximately performed in two hours average. Only a few minutes are needed to reshape or modify the nose; however, so as to make the nose look as natural as possible, we need more time to preserve the nasal structure and prevent the surgical stigmas.
