This primary rhinoplasty done via an open approach demonstrates the component dorsal reduction approach to rhinoplasty and it exemplifies the use and role of invisible grafts such as a columellar strut graft to reshape the nasal tip area. Non-destructive suture techniques are used to reshape and refine the nasal tip. Alar contour grafts are used to prevent long term alar rim collapse in the primary open rhinoplasty patient. All these techniques can be used in most primary rhinoplasty patients with excellent reproducible outcomes.
