Background: The management of deformities of the nasal soft triangle (ST) is a difficult and very sensitive discussion in rhinoplasty. So far, the standard method for correcting these deformities has yet to be introduced. We aimed to introduce a new technique using modified fine graft (MMG) for correcting nasal ST triangle deformity and evaluate the effects of using this method.
Methods: This prospective study was conducted on 20 rhinoplasty candidates who underwent surgery at 15 Khordad Hospital, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran between August 2021 to the February 2022 with the new technique of using an MMG to correct nasal ST triangle deformities. Follow-up was performed immediately after surgery, 3 and 6 months after surgery. Post-operative findings included ST deformity correction, graft exposure, graft visibility, recurrence rate, and the need for revision were evaluated by photography for all patients.
Results: The mean age of patients was 33.65± 11.047 years, 85% of the cases were female and 90% of surgeries were primal rhinoplasties. The ST triangle deformity was not corrected in 2 cases (10%). Both patients were women with primary rhinoplasty, and cartilage was removed from the septum in both. Graft exposure, recurrence, and visibility were not reported in any cases.
Conclusion: MFG was highly effective in correcting the deformity of the nasal ST triangle and did not cause serious complications in patients. This method is a suitable method with high efficiency for correcting nasal ST triangle deformity.
