Fig. 6 – 9. (A,B) Hump has been narrowed and tip plasty considered in order to achieve a straight dorsum and tip projection, elevation and rotation.

Fig. 6 – 11. Hump has been reduced and tip plasty performed. In order to reach the hump, we have to perform intercartilagenous and hemitransfixion incisions. This will divide the anatomical attachment of the tip to the rest of the nose resulting in dropped, underprojected tip with wider nares. Therefore, tip plasty is essential to obtain tip projection, definition, rotation, and stretching of the nares
