Overresection of the nasal tip

Think Michael Jackson, as in so much plastic surgery there's no cartilage left in the nose to remold.

Plastic surgeons have now perfected a technique that grafts seagull wing cartilage to overdone noses, providing new definition to the profile and a new definition to the term 'winging it.' One author of an outcome study published in The Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery noted that 'patient satisfaction was high.' In this series, 92% of the subjects who flew through the procedure were pleased with the lift.
