Abstract

Radix or nasofrontal angle has a special concern in rhinoplasty. Minimal changes in the position of nasofrontal angle can produce a different image of nasal and midfacial length in the profile view. In a patient with high radix, the profile of the forehead continues into the nose in a straight line and the nose appears too long. On the other hand, deep nasofrontal angle makes the illusion of a short nose. The ideal position of this angle has always been a matter of discussion and various methods have been introduced regarding its correction by deepening or augmenting the radix area. In this article, we first review the ideal position of nasofrontal angle and then discuss different procedures used to correct it.
