Although many surgical techniques have been introduced, there are few clinical studies investigating postoperative results in nasal deformities. The aim of this study is to discuss the surgical choices for specific deformities and to report the long-term quantitative surgical results of our cases. 25 patients who attended ENT department, Govt. Rajaji Hospital, Madurai from August 2010 to September 2011 were included in this study. Our series includes various deformities such as crooked nose, saddle nose , hump nose & tip deformities. All these deformities were corrected by closed rhinoplasty or combined with external approach when tip plasty is needed. We have analysed the results using pre-operative & post-operative photographs taken in frontal, basal and lateral views. The results were excellent in 45.5% of patients with crooked nose, 54.5% of patients with saddle nose & 66.6% with hump nose. These results are as better as those cases done by open approach but advantageous than it by avoiding external scars & thereby psychologically satisfying the patients.
