Nasal Augmentation

  • Michael Perry


Collapse and deformation of the nose are common consequences following midface trauma. These injuries can be difficult to precisely restore primarily, particularly following high-energy impacts. Secondary correction is frequently required. This chapter focuses on providing additional ‘volume’ to the underprojected nose.
