Abstract

Background: A successful rhinoplasty procedure requires a well-defined and properly projected nasal tip; however, surgical control of the nasal tip is difficult. The aim of this investigation was to assess the efficacy and safety of a modified suture technique, which can be used to fix the caudal septal extension graft during primary rhinoplasty of the Asian population and revision septorhinoplasties of the Caucasian population, and to compare it with those of other commonly used techniques.
