There are many reasons
that we would want to narrow the nasal bones during a rhinoplasty. Maybe
the bones make the nose appear too wide. Maybe both bones, or only one
bone, has been pushed
abnormally wide in a car accident.
Actually, we narrow
the nasal bones on almost every rhinoplasty. Surprised? One reason
is that if we remove a hump from the nose, we almost always follow up by
narrowing the nasal bones. Since that's an important concept to
understand, I'll explain why in some detail.
