Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty: Anatomy, Aesthetics, and Surgical Planning
04 May 2010 (online)
Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty (MER) offers a challenging subset of nasal deformities. It has far greater variety in anatomical characteristics than previously thought and requires careful surgical planning. Critical techniques include the following; 1) reduce the specific component of the dorsal deformity, 2) use a balanced approach of augmentation and reduction whenever possible, 3) as reduction increses the need for spreader grafts increases, and 4) achieve tip shape with structural support and not excision.
