Cephalic trimming of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC) of the nose is often performed to refine a broad nasal tip in the horizontal dimension. The focus of cephalic trimming remains the preservation of the width of the lateral crura and the cartilage remnant at the cephalic end of the LLC is usually left intact, which leads to inadequate cephalic trimming.
