Abstract

Hump reduction is one of the most common reasons patients seek cosmetic rhinoplasty. Spreader grafts or spreader flaps have become a key maneuver in supporting and reconstructing the nasal midvault after reductive profileplasty to prevent long-term functional and cosmetic sequelae. This article reviews the pertinent anatomy, describes indications for spreader graft or spreader flap placement, discusses surgical techniques and approaches for spreader graft placement, and describes complications of spreader graft use after hump reduction.
