The human nose is located in the center of the face and it's cosmetic importance is high. The contour of the nasal dorsum and side walls play a major role in the shaping of the nose, and even a slight distortion may results in significant variance of the human facies. However, in the case of patients with wide nasal bone, augmention rhinoplasty can make nasal planes look wide, resulting in bulbous appearing noses or lateral borders of the nasal implant may be visible after the surgery making the final cosmetic results unsatisfactory. To solve such problems, from march, 1999 to march, 2004, the authors have performed augmention rhinoplasty in 36 patients. The cause of operations were as follows: flat nose 20, hump nose 5, deviated nose 4, secondary rhinoplasty 7. Paramedian osteotomy was performed at a distance that was the same as the width of the implant from the midline(5 mm+5 mm). To prevent it from connecting to the roof at the lateral osteotomy line, intentional green stick fracture of the roof was performed. Agumentation rhinoplasty was done with either Silicone or Gortex and ear cartilage as a supplement. The follow up period was 2 weeks to 13 months with an average of 5.5 months. There were no infections and postoperative bleeding. As a result, the nose was augmented higher and narrower than before which we and the patient both found highly satisfactory.
