Abstract

Cosmetic surgery of the nose frequently produces unsatisactory results that require modifications. The surgeon should carefully evaluate the nose and its relationships and determine the patient’s desires before deciding on a surgical procedure. One utilizes the concepts of harmony, balance, symmetry, and proportions. Surgery uses procedures to refine proportions, contours, silhouette, and volume.
