Because rhinoplastic surgery predominantly deals with the osseocartilaginous skeleton, droopy noses with thick skin remain a problem to be solved. In these noses, neglecting excess skin can impair long-lasting and complete correction of the nasal deformity. As these noses already require redundant dorsal skin resection, surgical manipulations can be executed entirely through the dorsal skin excision window instead of the transcolumellar approach.
