Nasal Bone Repositioning

The nasal bone makes up the nasal bridge and contributes to the dorsal aesthetic lines of the nose. The bridge may be deviated, too high, too low, too wide, or too narrow due to congenital or traumatic causes. This requires nasal bone repositioning via osteotomies.

Osteotomies refer to cuts in the bone, and these can be done via the internal (no external cuts for access) or external (external stab incisions) routes. They can also be part of closed or open rhinoplasties. The method chosen is dependent on the extent or type of nasal bone movement required, and both internal and external incisions heal well without scarring.

Osteotomies do require skilled hands, as a poorly osteotomized nasal bone can lead to instability, and the nasal root is close to the base of the skull which protects the brain. A consultation and assessment with our board-certified plastic surgeon will help to determine the need for nasal bone repositioning.
