Septorhinoplasty – Cleft Nose (2)

This patient was born with a cleft lip and palate. Frequently, the changes of the nose – both in shape and function – become more evident after puberty. Corrective nasal surgery may be performed at about 18 years of age and older. Dr. Gassner performed an endonasal rhinoplasty approach in this patient. He placed a „foundation graft“ – a technique that he developed and that has found use in centers around the world.
