Case #21

This patient was subjected to a nasal trauma. As a result, the nose was deviated (anterior view) and had a “pseudo-bossa”, that is to say, a false bossa caused by the sinking of the septal cartilage in the inferior third of the nose. Through an open rhinosseptoplasty, it was possible to correct the nasal pyramid deviation and to achieve a new profile, by replacing the septal cartilage in its proper place. In addition to the aesthetic component, the functional component was also corrected, allowing the patient to have a good nasal permeability.
