Abstract :

Correction of the nasal dorsum ranks among the most common surgical procedures in rhinoplasty. Due to the involvement of nasal support structures such as septolateral cartilage and the key stone area and scroll formation areas, these procedures have both aesthetic and functional impacts. Reduction of the nasal dorsum height is one of the most critical steps in terms of surgical outcome after rhinoplasty. In addition to spreader grafts and spreader flaps, the most important surgical methods currently include the split hump reduction technique, cartilage-fascia transplants and cartilage grafts from rib and ear. In addition to serving to correct deformities, the techniques described here help prevent complications such as inverted V, hourglass and saddle nose deformities, as well as nasal valve stenosis. The basic operative principle calls for reinforcement and reconstruction of the anatomical support structures, while avoiding over resection and mucosal lacerations. In nasal dorsal augmentation, numerous materials including synthetic, autologous, and homologous materials, especially cartilage has been used for dorsal augmentation. Warping remain a primary issue in the use of autologous costal cartilage for nasal augmentation. To mitigate such issues, diced cartilage in fascia has been proposed as an alternative for use in rhinoplasty. Proper preoperative nasal examination and nasofacial analysis are paramount to maintain cosmetic harmony between the nose and the other facial unites, and to achieve optimum functional recovery in aesthetic and functional surgery of the nose.

Later, he has earned the degree of Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeon of Ireland and European Board of Plastic, Aesthetic, and Reconstructive Surgery. In addition, he has earned his Medical Doctorate degree in Surgery after his thesis in self-inflating tissue expanders in the field of reconstructive surgery. Along with obtaining most of the valuable degrees in plastic and reconstructive surgery, he is also a member of several organizations of plastic surgery like ISAPS, European Society of Rhinoplasty Surgery, Mediterranean Burn Club and many more. After close contact with the pioneers of plastic surgery and attending several excessive courses in the field of rhinoplasty, he has gained the advanced fellowship in secondary rhinoplasty from Bergamo State Hospital, Italy. He is an expert in primary, secondary, and tertiary rhinoplasty, and has contributed in different types of teaching and research done in all the hospitals he has worked in.
