BACKGROUND Osteotomies are required to mobilize the bony pyramid for infracture, outfracture, or realignment. Using traditional techniques and instruments, mobilization of the bony pyramid often results in serious edema and ecchymosis. OBJECTIVE The authors evaluate how the use of micro-osteotomes in lateral osteotomy influence postoperative healing. METHODS A series of 36 rhinoplasties were evaluated to determine the postoperative effect on edema and ecchymosis of micro-osteotomes used in… CONTINUE READING
