If the bones of your nose are standing out in an inverted V shape, this issue is known as an inverted V malformation. Considering rhinoplasty? It’s best to do research so you can fully understand the procedure.

Spreader grafts, which can correct an inverted V nasal issue, are made of cartilage that is usually taken from the nasal septum. Sometimes, when there is insufficient septal cartilage, ear or rib cartilage will be used instead.

Plastic surgeons regularly create and implement spreader grafts for rhinoplasty. Speak with Doctors Matthew Romans and Jeremy Silk, board-certified cosmetic surgeons in the Salinas area, to learn more information about inverted V corrective rhinoplasty. Contact our office to arrange an appointment.
