Effective control of nasal tip projection and rotation is a key component in modern rhinoplasty. Tip projection is a product of several anatomical factors: length and strength of lower lateral cartilages, the suspensory ligament, fibrous connections to the upper lateral cartilages, and the anterior septal angle. Several cartilage grafts have been described for effectively altering nasal tip projection and rotation. Columellar struts and septal extension grafts are both commonly used in modern rhinoplasty to affect projection and rotation of the nasal tip. Although columellar strut grafts have shown moderate efficacy in maintaining tip projection and unifying the tip complex, their effect on increasing tip projection has been shown to be very limited. In comparison, septal extension grafts have been shown to effectively control tip projection, rotation, and shape by securing the nasal tip to the septum. Varieties of septal extension grafts have been described to support the medial crura and control tip shape, all of which depend on the presence of a stable caudal septum. The type of graft used is dependent on the specific characteristics of the underlying tip structures. The authors’ aim is to provide an updated classification of cartilage grafts for altering nasal tip projection and rotation, and an algorithmic approach for their implementation. Although both columellar struts and septal extension grafts offer the modern rhinoplasty surgeon a way to alter tip projection and rotation, they do vary in efficacy. Understanding which graft to use and in what setting is key in successfully controlling projection, rotation, and shape of the nasal tip.
