Abstract

Asymmetry of the nasal tip is a common finding in the setting of primary and revision rhinoplasty. Careful preoperative analysis is imperative to identify the anatomic etiology of the asymmetry to develop an appropriate surgical plan to correct it. This article describes the anatomic structures that affect the overall appearance of the nasal tip, explains how intrinsic asymmetries can alter nasal tip appearance, and offers a menu of surgical techniques that can be used to correct these asymmetries.
