What will you find in this inspirational rhinoplasty course?
RADIX: The first anatomical site to look at while analyzing the nose should be the radix. Any surgical intervention failing to bring a low or high radix into its ideal position may lead to dorsum or tip problems in a chain reaction manner. The objective of this session is to have a deeper understanding of the radix and to review alternative surgical techniques targeting problems associated with it.
DORSUM: In contrast with the view “who is master tip master”, perhaps the real mastery lies not in the formation of the tip, but an ideal dorsum. How to achieve this mastery? How to avoid from irregular dorsum, poly beak deformity, inverted V deformity, and how to deal with them when they occur. All addressed in this session.
BROW-TIP AESTHETIC LINE: A beautiful face means a good brow-tip aesthetic line; unfortunately, this line does not get the attention it deserves, as we see that not enough mention of it is made in many professional meetings. In this session, the maneuvers to create an ideal brow-tip aesthetic line will be reviewed.
TIP: Is it possible to form a tip using sutures only? Is the “dome integrity” really a holy thing? Alar malposition, according to whom and what? Can malposition be corrected without transposition? In this presentation the pros and cons of different surgical maneuvers will be discussed, in addition with a discussion regarding the specific types of maneuvers for achieving ideal outcomes.
ALAR BASE PANEL
Does alar base reduction represent a maneuver to be dreaded? Which site should be preferred, and in which conditions?
DEVIATED NOSE PANEL
Symmetry is beauty. Therefore a beautiful nose should have symmetry. To resolve issues associated with asymmetry, each problem in each nose segment should be analysed separately and appropriate solutions should be implemented. But which solutions?
RHINOPLASTY AND SKIN
“To enlarge a nose to reduce its size” Believe your ears. If the patient has a thick integument, perhaps we may achieve an elegant nose appearance using all grafts we know. How? Answers in this session.
The four components of this profile include the chin, forehead, maxilla, and the nose. It is not possible to assume absence of interactions between these components. For instance, a posteriorly located chin may result in a bigger-than-actual nose appearance. In this session, the effect of non-nasal profile problems will be reviewed systematically.
LET’S KNOW ABOUT SECONDARY NASAL DEFORMITIES
A thorough understanding of deformities due to previous surgery and to predict underlying causes forms the basis of revision surgery. In this session, each deformity and the corresponding anatomical problems will be considered.
A major dilemma associated with live surgery is the ultimate inability to conceive of the postoperative outcome and the inability to envision the long-term outcome of the surgical maneuvers that are being watched.
The reward of watching a presentation which includes peri-operative videos of previous surgical cases is that it allows us to see the long-term results.
REVISION TIP PROBLEMS
Pinched nose, over-rotated nasal tip, over-projected nasal tip, asymmetric tip, hanging columella, just a few of the problems that will be addressed in this session.
REVISION DORSUM PROBLEMS
Saddle nose, inverted v deformity, irregular dorsum, solutions and ways to avoid them. All in this session.
In some patients undergoing septo-rhinoplasty, a worsening of functional problems is observed, contrary to expectations. What is the cause? What is the error? What can be done? All will be addressed in this session.
How to retrieve and prepare costal cartilage, auricular cartilage, or cadaveric cartilage? Which to use where?
This session aims to enable all participants to perform these procedures.
