A functional and aesthetic solution for saddle nose deformity: the use of the inferior turbinate bone

Orhan Özturan1, Tamer Erdem, Murat Cem Minan, Rezzan Erguvan

The use of a new autologous material, the inferior
turbinate bone, for nasal augmentation is presented
together with surgical treatment of a 24-year-old male
patient with moderately severe saddle nose deformity.
In the postoperative period, no complications were
observed. Photographs and three-dimensional computed
tomography views obtained 13 months after the
operation showed that the reconstruction area was
highly free of postoperative resorption. The patient’s
complaints disappeared, and he was satisfied with
functional and cosmetic results. Moreover, a histologic
evaluation which was made to assess the depth of the
glandular component showed that the inferior turbinate
bone could be used over the nasal dorsum in a
smoother shape, retaining its overlying soft tissue.
