Patel K, Mendonca DA, Skolnick GA, Woo AS. Anatomical study of the medial crura and its effect on open tip rhinoplasty. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery 2013; Oct;132(4):787-93.
Common variations in morphology of the medial crura have been described. The authors’ observation is that changes in nasal tip projection depend on the shape and strength of the medial crura. The authors investigated how differences in medial crura shape affect tip projection after surgical intervention.
