This young man is breathing well and confident 1 month after his cleft rhinoplasty and fat graft to his upper lip.
Not every patient requires a rib graft, or total deconstruction and reconstruction of the nose.
Here, we used a spreader graft on just the left side of the nose, columellar strut graft, and suture techniques to unite, reorient, and reconstruct the cartilage support.
Fat was also transferred to his upper lip to provide a little more fullness to balance with his lower lip.
We look forward to seeing him back again as the swelling continues to improve over the next 12-24 months.
