In this video we are going to see how to correct an overprojected nose, by a structural open approach. The nasal structure is made solid and stable by placing a cartilaginous septal extension graft harvested from the patient’s nasal septum, on which the alar cartilages are sutured. To reduce the projection of the tip, the medial crura are anchored to the septal extension graft in a deprojected position and bilateral lateral crura overlay technique is performed. Subsequently two alar extension grafts are placed to ensure the functionality of the nasal valves. At the end, a Weir Resection Technique is performed to harmonize and symmetrize the nostrils shape.
