A new technique of alar base cinching following maxillary osteotomy


Alar base cinching for the correction of flat and flaring noses was first described about 10 years ago. Its use to correct, without the use of skin incisions, nasal base flaring that results from Le Fort I osteotomy has also been reported. The use of the nasotracheal tube in orthognathic surgery hampers or otherwise affects the use of alar base cinch sutures. A technique is described to effect alar base cinching in a more predictable manner.
