This fact has become increasingly evident within the past decade, during which the principle of tissue conservation has permeated the surgical philosophy of reductive rhinoplasty. 1,2 Tissue conservation has been primarily adopted within the domain of dorsal reduction surgery, yet the same principles hold true in tip modification, or tipplasty. 3 For instance, emphasis was once placed on tip reduction techniques that achieved short-term and cosmetic goals often at the expense of harm to the support mechanisms of the tip.

Recently, clinicians have reported on various surgical techniques that maximally preserve alar cartilage integrity, unlike the earlier popular methods of tip reduction surgery. Objectives: The authors compared the effects of 2 rhinoplasty techniques: a cephalic trim (CT) of the lateral crura (LC) and a horizontal resection with cephalic hinged flap (HRCH) of the LC of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC). Methods: Fifty-two patients who presented with a bulbous nasal tip deformity were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 groups and underwent either CT of the LC or HRCH. Effects of the procedures were evaluated by both acoustic rhinometry (AR; first and second minimal cross-sectional areas [MCA1 and MCA2, respectively]) and by subjective scoring on a global nasal obstruction visual analog scale (VAS). Assessments were made before and after rhinoplasty. Results: MCA1 and MCA2 were increased after both CT and HRCH. This increase was significant on the right side for both CT (P <.001) and HRCH (P =.001), but the increase on the left side was significant only for HRCH. Conclusions: The improvement noted in breathing quality by VAS and AR suggests that a hinged flap may be effective in reconstructing the internal nasal valve.

2 688 Aesthetic Surgery Journal 34(5) Despite normal conformation of the septum and turbinate, many patients exhibit some nasal obstruction after rhinoplasty. This generally has been ascribed to either postreductive narrowing of the midvault or dynamic collapse due to insufficiency of the lateral wall. 4,5 The internal valve region refers to the area between the caudal end of the upper lateral cartilage (ULC) and the cartilaginous septum and includes the circumferential neighboring structures in the nasal airway. Narrowing at this location can lead to compromised airflow. Lateral wall insufficiency is caused by weakness of the lateral nasal wall, which collapses during negative pressure generation from inhalation. 5-7 The intervalve region refers to the area between the external and internal valves, immediately superior to the lateral crura (LC) of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC) and corresponding to the supra-alar crease. This area is naturally devoid of cartilaginous support and therefore is subject to collapse after tip maneuvers. 1,8,9 Recently, many clinicians have reported on a variety of surgical techniques that maximize the preservation of tip structure Unlike earlier popular methods such as cephalic excision of the LLC, separation of the LLC and ULC, creation of an interrupted strip, and formation of loose or free cartilage edges, these newer techniques have been applied in an effort to reinforce LLC durability and to simultaneously provide aesthetic correction. In the present study, we introduce new modifications for tip-plasty. Instead of reduction surgery, we focus on conservative measures aimed at stabilizing and reorienting the cartilaginous structures and support. 15,17,18 With this technique, the cephalic portion is turned inward as a hinged flap in various ways (rather than cephalic excision of the LC of the LLC), as determined by the specific type of tip deformity, and subsequently is stabilized with nonabsorbable mattress sutures. The cosmetic and anatomic results of these techniques have been presented in earlier studies 15,17-19 ; however, potential effects on the nasal valve area (NVA) warrant additional investigation. In this study, we demonstrate the effects of the hinged flap in the horizontal resection with cephalic hinged flap (HRCH) technique on the NVA, based on subjective (patient self-assessment of global nasal obstruction with a visual analog scale [VAS]) and objective acoustic rhinometry(ar) measures. MEthods This randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial was conducted at Vali-Asr Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Iran, between March 2011 and February The study design was approved by the Institutional Review Board and Ethics Committee of Tehran University of Medical Sciences. Fifty-two patients, each of whom provided informed consent for the procedures, were selected for study participation based on inclusion and exclusion criteria by each of the authors in the clinics. All patients were white, and no other ethnicity was represented in this study. Patients with a bulbous tip deformity, defined as an angle of diversion >30 and/or a tip-defining point distance >4 mm, were included in the study and were randomly assigned to receive either cephalic trim (CT; n = 26) or HRCH (n = 26). In all cases, correction of the deformity was performed during open rhinoplasty. Excluded from the study were patients who had undergone revision rhinoplasty, patients with additional deformities (such as saddle nose, rhinosinusitis, and nasal polyposis), and patients with any local or systemic disease that affected the nose and/or paranasal sinuses. Also excluded were patients with more-than-mild septal deviation or deviations that involved the NVA. Surgical Techniques Surgical techniques for both patient groups included routine open rhinoplasty maneuvers such as ULC spreader grafts, medial and lateral osteotomies, and dorsal hump reduction. As previously described for the HRCH technique, 15 the LC and ULC were not separated in the scroll area. The LC and middle crura were demarcated horizontally by 2 lines, and at least 7 to 8 mm of cartilage was preserved caudally. Two horizontal excisions were planned, the width and shape of which were determined by the anatomy and degree of the deformity. A 3- or 4-mm horizontal excision was usually sufficient. The cartilage was incised with a No. 15 scalpel blade, and the cartilage between the 2 cuts was excised and the remnants of the LC of the LLC were preserved. Unlike other techniques featuring turn-in flaps, the skin and mucosal lining inside the ala were not undermined beyond the area in which the cartilage was excised. Next, the cephalic portion was turned in as a hinged flap and stabilized with 5-0 nonabsorbable mattress sutures (Ethicon Endo-Surgery GmbH, Norderstedt, Germany). Three mattress sutures were sufficient to fix the rotated cephalic portion. For the CT technique, the LC and ULC were separated in the scroll area. The cartilage was incised with a No. 15 scalpel blade, preserving at least 7 to 8 mm of cartilage caudally, and the cartilage of the cephalic part was excised. Evaluation AR was performed preoperatively and at least 1 year postrhinoplasty with an A1 acoustic rhinometer (GM Instruments, Kilwinning, Scotland) by 1 physician (A.A.). The patient was seated in an upright position in a quiet room. The temperature in the room ranged from 20 C to 25 C. A round plastic nosepiece with a 13-mm inner

3 Amali et al 689 diameter and a 7-mm opening was placed. Each side of the nose was measured separately, with care taken to fit the nosepiece tightly to the nostril without distorting the anatomy. Four measurements, obtained at half-second intervals, were taken on each side. The measurements were considered valid if the 4 curves showed no deviation from each other, from the nostril to the end of the C-notch, with a divergence of 20% maximally from the middle curve to the curves posterior end, and no crossover. The data calculated by the A1 acoustic rhinometer software (GM Instruments) were then documented. The physician (A.A.) who performed the pre- and postoperative AR was blinded to which tip-plasty technique was performed on each patient. The first and second minimal cross-sectional areas (MCA1 and MCA2) were measured for all patients. Both preoperatively and 1 year postoperatively, patients self-scored their global nasal obstruction on a VAS from 0 to 10 (0 = no obstruction, 10 = total obstruction). Data Analysis To determine the study s sample size, we consulted a professional biostatistics expert. The sample size was calculated with the power of 80% to include at least 26 subjects in each group. Data were presented as means (± standard deviation [SD]). For each study group, measurements were compared before and after surgery with a paired sample t test. To compare the 2 different surgical techniques, postoperative measurements were subtracted from preoperative measurements, and the differences determined for each group were compared with an independent t test. An adjusted comparison was performed via analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) with SPSS version 18 (SPSS, Inc, an IBM Company, Chicago, Illinois). Significance was defined as P <.05. REsuLts All 52 patients completed the study (26 in each group). There were no statistically significant differences between the study groups with respect to age (t = 1.618, P =.112) or sex (χ 2 = 0.746, P =.338). The mean (SD) age in the CT and HRCH groups was 22.8 (5.4) years and 25.5 (6.2) years, respectively. The CT group included 18 (69.2%) women, and the HRCH group included 15 (57.7%) women. The mean follow-up period was 15.7 months for the entire study population, (range, 12-20) months for the CT group, and (range, 12-20) months for the HRCH group. No patient experienced complications postoperatively. (Clinical photographs are shown in Figures 1 and 2.) First and second minimal cross-sectional areas (MCA1 and MCA2, respectively) increased after CT and HRCH. This increase was significant on the right side in both the CT (P <.001) and HRCH (P =.001) groups (Figure 3, Table 1). However, on the left side, the change was significant only in the HRCH group (P <.001; Figure 4, Table 1). As shown in Table 2, MCA1 of the left side increased by 6.27% and 37.08% in the CT and HRCH groups, respectively (P =.013). On the right side, MCA1 increased by 13.39% and 44.56% in the CT and HRCH groups, respectively (P =.028). MCA2 of the left side increased by 31.08% and % in the CT and HRCH groups, respectively (P <.005). On the right side, MCA2 increased by 77.76% and % in the CT and HRCH groups respectively; the difference was not statistically significant (P =.138). Based on preoperative and postoperative patient self-assessments with the VAS, both groups experienced decreased nasal obstruction following the surgery (Table 1). This decrease was not statistically significant between the 2 surgical methods for the left side (P =.336) or the right side (P =.831) (Table 2). discussion The results of this study indicated improvement in both subjective assessment of breathing quality and objective measurement of cross-sectional areas (especially on the left side) following tip-plasty in which a cephalic hinged flap of the LC was placed (Table 1). As suggested by our initial hypothesis, this technique may provide satisfactory clinical and aesthetic outcomes. The improvements noted in breathing quality and AR measurements suggest that hinged flaps may be effective in reconstructing the internal nasal valve (Figure 5). In the past 2 decades, clinical application of acoustic rhinometry (AR) has expanded. Clinically relevant studies are now available for septoplasty, turbinateplasty, sinus surgery, and facial cosmetic surgery AR provides an outline of the cross-sectional areas within the nose and the volume of the nasal cavity. The advantages associated with AR include time efficiency and the need for only minimal patient cooperation. Researchers have correlated a crosssectional area measured by computed tomography with a cross section measured by AR. 24 In addition, views obtained by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been correlated with cross-sectional areas as measured by AR in the decongested nose. The hinged flap, first introduced in 2010, is believed to reduce nasal tip volume while maintaining support and strength in the nasal tip. 15,17 The preserved cephalic portion of the LC, when rotated and secured with sutures, provides additional tip support to the tripod. (The conjoined medial crura forms 1 leg of the tripod, and each of the lower lateral crus forms the other 2 legs.) In a crosssectional cadaveric study, Sazgar et al 19 showed that hinged flaps prevent posterior and caudal displacement of the LC s caudal portion. Applying a practical classification

Separation of the ULC and LLC, and consequent destruction of the scroll area in combination with wide mucosal undermining, is a common technique of previously studied rhinoplasty approaches However, we did not apply these maneuvers in the hinged flap technique. Compared with other LLC flaps, such as turn-in, turn-out, and sliding flaps, the orientation and position of the hinged flap have differed in our hands. 19 There is evidence that the hinged flap effectively improves the airway. Data from our cross-sectional cadaveric study 19

(A, C) Preoperatively, this 29-year-old woman presented with a bulbous droopy tip for rhinoplasty involving horizontal resection with cephalic hinged flap of the lateral crura. (B, D) The same patient, 1 year postoperatively. indicated that the hinged flap prevents posterior and caudal displacement of the LC s caudal portion. The space beneath the alpha angle formed by the connection of the hinged flap and the caudal part of the LC of the LLC was added to the valve area on the hinged flap side (Figure 5). Our present study demonstrates that this new surgical intervention for management of the LC does not adversely affect nasal airway function. According to both subjective and objective measurements, nasal airway patency was improved postoperatively in both the CT and HRCH groups. The fact that the increase was not statistically significant on the CT group s left side may relate to the small sample size. The percentage of increase was larger in the HRCH group for both MCA1 and MCA2. However, the difference was not statistically significant on the right side for MCA2, which also may be attributable to the small sample size. Another reason for the

Comparison of Surgical Results After the CT and HRCH Techniques MCA1 difference between the right and left sides might relate to septal deviations. It is noteworthy that bilateral ULC spreader grafts or flaps are routine procedures for all of our rhinoplasty patients. de Pochat et al 25 demonstrated that open-structure rhinoplasty with placed spreader grafts is effective in reconstructing the internal nasal valve, with significant improvement of a mean MCA on AR. Because all patients in the present study underwent this procedure, the statistical significance of the difference between the HRCH and CT groups may relate to the difference in the technique applied to the LLCs.

CT, cephalic trim; HRCH, horizontal resection with cephalic hinged flap; MCA1, first minimal cross-sectional area; MCA2, second minimal cross-sectional area; VAS, visual analog scale. a Percentage of change was not calculated for VAS assessment because some patients selected 0 preoperatively (on a scale of 0 to 10). An obvious limitation of this clinical study is the small study population. Because our study was performed in an academic teaching hospital, finding patients who fit our specific inclusion criteria was a challenge. We believe that future studies with larger sample sizes may help to confirm the results of this study. As with all studies involving AR, concerns about intraobserver variability exist. We attempted to address this potential limitation by having a single otolaryngologist (A.A.), who was blinded to the patients study group assignments, perform all AR tests.

Note each side s position of the caudal part of the LC. Also shown are the nasal septum (S), upper lateral cartilage (ULC), caudal part of the LC, the hinged flap, the angle between the hinged flap and ULC, and the angle between the hinged flap and caudal part of the LC. (Illustration by Christine Gralapp, MA, CMI, chrisgralapp.com) conclusions Most postrhinoplasty tip abnormalities occur secondary to loss of tip support and to excessive LLC resection. Because the hinged flap procedure can be performed in individuals who have weak cartilage and wide LC, such complications may be avoided. The hinged flap is an option in nasal tip reduction surgery that may improve long-term aesthetic and functional outcomes through NVA preservation. Future studies with longer follow-up periods and larger sample sizes are warranted to further elucidate the effectiveness of this technique as a replacement for LLC CT.
