Özet

Nasal tip management is the most important and challenging part of rhinoplasty surgery. For nasal tip management, optimal nasal tip projection and rotation must be maintained. For this reason, several methods have been developed to obtain optimal results. In this article, we share with the rhinoplasty surgeons how we use cartilage grafts for nasal tip projection, nasal tip shaping, and maintaining natural and symmetric appearance and avoid "visible cartilage" problem by using a simple and easily applicable method.
