Abstract

The upper lateral cartilages are instrumental in obtaining optimal outcomes in aesthetic and functional rhinoplasty. Knowledgeable manipulation of the upper lateral cartilages can take advantage of the crucial malleable parameters of projection, width, nasal dorsal shape, and tip rotation. A lucid understanding of the anatomical intricacies in this portion of the cartilaginous framework permits the surgeon to use their unique characteristics to consistently achieve the desired results.
