Background: The effect of a columellar strut graft on final nasal tip position has been a subject of ongoing debate. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively analyze a series of 100 consecutive primary rhinoplasty cases performed without the use of columellar strut grafts, with a specific focus directed toward comparing preoperative, morphed, and actual postoperative changes in nasal tip position.
