This is a case of saddle nose where the bridge of the nose was flat and alar base was broad giving an unattractive appearance. Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr S. M. Balaji corrected the saddle nose by augmenting the dorsum of the nose with costochondral graft harvested from the rib cartilage. Dr Balaji has done the entire surgery by closed rhinoplasty technique to avoid scar formation. After surgery the facial appearance was greatly enhanced.
