Surgical Treatment of Nasal Tip Hemangioma Using Open Rhinoplasty Approach

Hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of the infancy and its location on the nasal tip poses particularly as a challenge. A recent study published by out group defined an algorithm for surgical approach to hemangiomas.
Nasal tip hemangiomas carry a high risk for growth related deformities and is a usual indication for surgery.
The best approach must warrant a result at least similar or even better to spontaneous involution.
In this video we present a case where an open rhinoplasty approach was designed to remove the tumor, reposition the anatomic structures and reduce visible scars.
