Daria Hamrah, DMD, FAACS, FADSA
NOVA SurgiCare, PC, Tysons Corner, VA

This presentation describes the concepts of septal extension grafts versus columellar strut grafts in aiding the nasal tip projection and long-term stability of the nasal tripod. This is particularly important for the patient with tip ptosis and a dependent tip as well as external nasal valve collapse. Proper choice of the above grafts is crucial for both function and aesthetics of the nasal tip and its congruence with the nasal dorsum and columella. Further, it affects nostril show, alar width, and columellar show from an aesthetic standpoint. The audience is given a clear overview of the decision-making process based on anatomic and aesthetic guidelines.
