Abstract

The most challenging and instrumental step in achieving harmonious form and function during rhinoplasty is the successful completion of osteotomies. Osteotomies are performed to correct deformities of the bony nasal vault. Successful treatment of deformity of the bony vault is achieved through organized thinking, comprehensive knowledge of nasal anatomy, and thorough preoperative and intraoperative planning. In this review the authors discuss the pertinent anatomy, technical considerations, and complications that rhinoplasty surgeons should be aware of to optimize the correction of deformities of the nasal bony vault.
