Over the last few years, our team has systematically utilized exo-rhinoplasty in the treatment of bulbous nasal tips, which are characterized by thick skin, excessively rounded and with bad definition. Initially, only interdomal sutures were performed and it was noticed that the resulting projection using this technique was not long-lasting. More recently, the modified Rethi approach started to be utilized, using interdomal sutures and Peck and Strut-type cartilage grafts; thus obtaining a better definition and projection of the nasal tip with longlasting results.
