It is crucial to stabilize the dorsum of the nose . Revision rhinoplasty can address a variety of deformities such as; The deviation on the dorsum may not be corrected sufficiently, so the nose still looks crooked. A small hump on the bony dorsum may still be left and this may not satisfy the patient's dreams. The open roof is another deformity when the nasal bones don’t come together on the 1/3 bony vault after the osteotomies during rhinoplasty. The nose appears excessively wide as a result. An excessive resection of the bony dorsum results in depressed and hollow appearance on the 1/3 bony roof. Aggressive surgery on the septum and the cartilaginous dorsum results in scooped, saddle nose deformity. Inverted V-shaped shadow occurs when the cartilages forming the sides of the nasal bridge are over-resected and destabilized. Irregularities on the dorsum may also come to the surface after the first 6 months of rhinoplasty. These are important defects which require careful and attentional revision rhinoplasty.
