Reply to: “Invited Discussion on: Video Assisted Septo-Rhinoplasty, the Future of Endonasal Rhinoplasty–a Technical Note”
AbstractWe respond to Gryskiewic and Alameddine ’s commentary on our recent study regarding endoscopic use in rhinoplasty. Highlighting the context-dependent nature of technique superiority, we discuss the alternative approach of Video Assisted Rhinoseptoplasty (VARS) in mitigating visible scarring concerns. Additionally, we emphasize the benef its of comparing closed procedures with and without endoscopic assistance, underscoring the advantages of optical utilization. Our perspective on nasal tip surgery advocates for enlarged marginal incisions to facilitate direct visual control, complementing our approach. Addressing...
