Objective: In ptotic noses, it is rather difficult to achieve the intended functional and cosmetic result without modifying the alar cartilage and creating a new nasal tip. The split cartilage resection method was intended to create a new and permanent nasal tip to protect the physiologic and cosmetic appearance of the nose in the presence of long and ptotic nasal tip.
