Suture algorithm for the broad or bulbous nasal tip.

The history and current status of suture techniques to correct a broad or bulbous nasal tip are reviewed. General principles for suture techniques to control tip shape are discussed; they include leaving an approximately 6-mm-wide lateral crus. The algorithm presented includes four sutures, all of which are not necessary in every case. These sutures include (1) the transdomal suture (to narrow the individual domes), (2) the interdomal suture (to provide symmetry and tip strength and sometimes to narrow the tip complex), (3) the lateral crural mattress suture (to reduce lateral crural convexity), and (4) the columella-septal suture (to prevent tip drop and adjust tip projection). The lateral crural mattress suture is the newest of these sutures. It specifically controls undesirable convexity of the lateral crus. The four-suture algorithm is principally designed for primary open rhinoplasties. However, it is also recommended for secondary rhinoplasties. A minor modification is suggested for use in closed rhinoplasties. The algorithm is intended to reduce the difficulty of determining which of the currently available rhinoplasty sutures are useful and in what order they should be used. Illustrative cases are provided. The advantages and disadvantages of this particular algorithm, compared with others that have been proposed, are also reviewed.
