Sacramento Rhinoplasty Surgery
The surgical anatomy behind a nasal reconstruction surgery can be complicated, especially for someone with no knowledge of rhinoplasty surgical procedures. Let’s learn a little bit about how the human nose functions as a sensory organ.
The human nose is complied with three types of tissue:
Osseo-Cartilaginous – this is the basic support framework (skeleton of the nasal area)
Mucous Membrane Lining
These three components create a graceful blend of curves, convexities, and depressions to for the nose.
The nose can be divided into nasal subunits for even further explanation. These include the Midline, the Nose-Tip, the Dorsum, the Soft Triangles, the Lateral Walls, and the Alar Lobules. Please refer to the image below to identify where these nasal subunits rest within the overall nose.
