Inverted V

When people come in for a revision rhinoplasty consultation, the physician will perform an evaluation to find out what the exact nature of the issue is. One common issue is an inverted V deformity.

Removing too much cartilage from the bridge of the nose can weaken it, making it structurally unsound. When the middle vault area becomes too weak to support the nasal skin, it collapses, causing the surrounding nasal bones to appear more prominent.

Plastic surgeons often address an inverted V deformity with spreader grafts during a rhinoplasty. Discuss this procedure with Doctors Lawrence Chang and Joseph Thornton, board-certified plastic surgeons with years of experience. To arrange a consultation, contact our office today.
