Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji skillfully performed the reduction rhinoplasty technique. Vertically nasal septal cartilage height was trimmed and dorsal bony hump reduction was done by medial osteotomy to reduce the height of the nose. Width of the nose was also reduced by lateral osteotomy technique. Resection of cartilaginous and bony hump was done with wide chisel. Thus bulky nose and size of the framework of the nose was reduced from inside the nose to avoid any scars on the face (closed rhinoplasty technique).
A balance between the nose shape and facial profile was achieved for a more pleasing appearance. The patient was very happy to have a narrower, shapely nose that enhanced his facial profile with absolutely no scarring.
