Female African American patient who desired refinement to her nose. She was mostly concerned by the width of the nose on the front view and the appearance of the hump on the profile view. Rhinoplasty techniques included an open approach with alar base reductions to narrow the nostrils and the width of the base of the nose. Tip refinement techniques included tip support with a caudal septal extension graft, nasal skin de-fatting, and tip onlay graft. Straightening of the bridge from the profile view was not achieved with the lowering of the hump but rather with radix augmentation and tip projection. This allows for the simultaneous straightening of the bridge on the profile view of the nose as well as refinements to the frontal view.
