Tip Ligament Preservation and Suspension: Why and How?
This issue of Clinics explores the concept of "preservation" rhinoplasty. At present, this topic is gaining considerable attention. As proponents of preservation suggest, a great number of problems we encounter in rhinoplasty are problems that were not present before the surgery; therefore, they can often be attributable to the deconstruction and reconstruction that took place. Preservation rhinoplasty should be viewed generally as a mindset to limit deconstructive steps in rhinoplasty when possible, understanding that these steps and those to later reconstruct provide the potential to create new problems that did not previously exist.
