The term “dorsal preservation rhinoplasty” refers to the practice of protecting the dorsal area of the nose, or the bridge. This procedure selectively removes small amounts of bone and cartilage located under the nasal bridge. Through this method, experienced surgeons can reduce the height of the nasal dorsum, or nose bridge, while preserving the patient’s bridge contours. This is an innovative technique for patients looking to enhance their nasal contours subtly and naturally. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which often involves aggressive nasal bone removal and cartilage restructuring, dorsal preservation rhinoplasty aims to maintain the integrity of the nasal structure while achieving the desired enhancements.
One of the primary reasons why dorsal preservation rhinoplasty has gained immense popularity is its ability to deliver a more natural aesthetic result. Patients are usually highly satisfied, reducing the likelihood of seeking a revision.
The preservation of the dorsal structure also ensures that the nose retains its strength and support. This is a crucial factor in maintaining healthy nasal function. Patients achieve a refined, harmonious nasal appearance without sacrificing their nasal strength and functionality of breathing.
Compared to traditional rhinoplasty, dorsal preservation rhinoplasty offers a relatively quick and less invasive recovery process. With smaller incisions and less bone manipulation, patients experience reduced swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Most individuals can return to their daily activities within a week, making this procedure ideal for those with busy lives and schedules.
