The Alignment of the Nose in Rhinoplasty: Fix Down Concept


Background:The current literature on rhinoplasty mainly focusses on the nasal profile (sagittal plane); however, the nose is a 3-dimensional structure, and alignment of the nose in consideration of other aspects is important to achieve an aesthetic result. The author aimed to introduce the fix down concept which includes fix down technique and the adjunct maneuvers for achieving alignment of the nose in 3 anatomical planes and improving the results of rhinoplasty in terms of symmetry.

Methods: Between March 2017 and December 2017, a total of 102 patients (78 female, 24 male), (13 revision, 89 primary cases) underwent septorhinoplasty with the fix down concept. The noses were evaluated in coronal, sagittal, and axial planes and classified according to their deformities.

Results:The functional and aesthetic results were satisfactory for the patients, examiners, and surgeon. No revisions were necessary during the follow-up period. In addition to the fix down technique; ethmoid bone grafting (16 patients); fix up technique (8 patients);dissection of the levator alaeque nasi muscle (14 patients); plication of this muscle (4 patients); superior based transposition flap (39 patients); rim grafts (17 patients); mucosa grafts (12 patients); double layer grafts (9 patients); maxillary deepening (5 patients); maxillary augmentationwith cartilage/bone grafts (21 patients); and supratip onlay grafts (7 patients) were employed as adjunctive maneuvers to achieve symmetry in the frontal, base, and profile views.

Conclusions: The presented fix down concept will help to provide 3-dimensional symmetric noses for rhinosurgeons.
