Figure 5: Correction of a deviation caused by a S-shaped deformity of a very narrow cartilaginous dorsum. In addition the bulbous drooping tip is deviated to the right (a). The result four months after surgery was obtained by partial thickness incisions on the concave side of the septum after the triangular cartilages were separated (e: blue), spreader grafts (e: magenta) and a resection of the cranial half of the alar cartilages (f: green) and a transdomal suture.
