Augmentation rhinoplasty in Patients with Traumatic nasal Deformities.
Kyung Dong Son, Sang Tae Ahn, Sung Shin Wee, Poong Lim
Nasal dorsal suppor may be weakened or lost during the corrective rhinoplasty procedures such as resection of dorsal deviation, osteotomies and reposition of deviated nasal bones, and incision, fracture, resection or scoring of the dorsal septal strut especially in the small flat noses. Partial or total augmentation of the nasal dorsum has an important role in the correction of asymmetry and restoration of aesthetic balance in the considerable amount of traumatic nasal deformities. We reviewed medical records, pre- and postoperative photographs of 53 patients with traumatic nasal deformities, which had been corrected by augmentation rhinoplasties. The majority of the patients were male (70%), ages of twenties and thirties (79%), injection by automobile accident, fist blows, and sports activities (76%), and were operated more than 3 years after injury (74%). Types of deformities were deviation only (47%), depression only (23%), deviation and depression (19%), deviation and hump (8%), and depression and widening (6%). At least two corrective procedures were needed in the deviated deformities and one procedure in the depressed deformities. Materials for augmentation were silicone implants in 55% and autogenous tissues in 45%. In terms of postoperative complications, displacement and/or absorption were observed in 6 of 24 (25%) autogenous augmentations and displacement and/or swelling in 8 of 29 (27.6%) silicone augmentations.
