Özet

Anterior septal height is an important determinant of nasal tip projection. Accordingly, the anterior septal extension technique has proven itself to be a powerful tool for achieving long-lasting nasal tip projection in rhinoplasty. However, anterior septal extension does not protect against postoperative loss of nasal tip rotation unless an additional suspension strategy is used. A tip-suspending transfixion suture is the authors' strategy for supporting nasal tip rotation whenever an anterior septal extension technique is performed.
