OBJECTIVES

During recent years, and for more than a decade, I have been dedicated to achieving stable, accurate, and predictable results in preservation rhinoplasty, inspired by a modification of the Cottle operation (the septum and pyramid adjustment and reposition concept). The Tetris concept (a strategy for the septal wall) performed on indicated noses, is a technique that consistently achieves these goals. The lateral wall is routinelly controlled with a Let-Down technique and a Lateral Split maneuver. It is my belief that the more tools we have available, the better decision the surgeon is able to make, and the more accurate the choice of the technique will be in each individual case. Whenever possible, I would rather use preservation rhinoplasty. Achieving a natural and nonviolated dorsum in the proper position with the right shape is definitely the aim of any surgeon, and by performing the dorsal preservation techniques, we are definitely closer to this goal
