How is a “hook” nose fixed with rhinoplasty?
A “hook” nose is usually a term used to describe a nose that has a dorsal hump as well as an underprojected tip. Therefore the surgical goals are to reverse those features. The hump is removed by taking out cartilage and bone. The tip is then elevated using a variety of techniques, but most commonly by using cartilage grafts taken from inside the nose to elevate and support the tip.
