Recorded On: 03/24/2021
Speaker: Edwin F. Williams, III, MD - Moderator: Grace Lee Peng, MD
The Endonasal Approach to Rhinoplasty has been used for decades. In the early years this approach was associated with a more reductive rhinoplasty and sequelae resulting in this becoming a less favored approach by those who are advocates for the Open Structure Approach which has its shortcomings. Dr. Williams’ presentation emphasizes the concept of Structural Rhinoplasty using the Endonasal Approach by employing grafting and suture techniques to accomplish the same goals with limited dissection and trauma to the nasal skeleton. Videos are included to show the details of the discussed and relevant surgical maneuvers so as to assist with understanding.
