Correction of a high deviated nasal septum often requires the placement of a spreader graft to straighten the dorsum. Rib grafts allow an ample amount of sold cartilage to keep the deviated nasal septum straight and buttress the internal nasal valve. When these maneuvers are performed, they improve the airway as well as improve the aesthetic contours of the nose. Tip defining sutures and lateral crural strut grafts can help provide improved tip definition.
