Rinostep to correct the nose

What is Rinostep?

Rinostep is a set of minimally invasive techniques with maximum efficiency aimed at correcting specific nasal problems, beatifying the patient's face while preserving its naturalness.

Rinostep: Strategic steps to correct specific nasal conditions

The nose is one of the most characteristic features of a person's face. The nasal pyramid is the most projected part of the face and is a key piece in the perception of facial beauty. 

Until now, correction of the various defects of the nose required undergoing the surgical procedure of rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is divided into several steps to differentiate surgical times.

Rinostep uses these steps to apply them in isolation or in combination with other minimally invasive techniques to perfect the nose under the following premises:

  • Obtain natural results that integrate the nose in the whole of the face in a harmonic way, according to the facial features of each patient.
  • Apply minimally invasive outpatient techniques.
  • No use plasters or splints.
  • Achieve faster and more comfortable recovery.

Which aesthetic problems of the nose are corrected with Rinostep?

The steps or strategic retouching of Rinostep are applied in the areas of the nose where the aesthetic problems are located:

  • Nose tip: position, width, shape and thickness of the tip.
  • Base of the nose: conformed by the nasal wings and the columella.
  • Back of the nose: upper dorsum, lower or concave.
  • Corrections of the shape of the nose.

Nasal tip corrections

  • Over projected or long tip.
  • Falling or infra projected tip.
  • Deviated tip.
  • Bulbous tip.
  • Fibrous tip.
  • Pinched tip.
  • Tip with extrusion-deviation of the septum.

Corrections of the base of the nose

  • Narrow or very narrow nasal wings.
  • Fallen columella.

Corrections of the nasal dorsum

  • Prominent easel.
  • Deviated nasal dorsum.
  • Sunken nasal dorsum: inverted "v", saddle or parenthesis.

General corrections of the shape of the nose

  • Short nose.
  • Long nose.
  • Large nose.
  • Overtensed nose.
  • Fine skin with marked cartilages.
  • Undefined nose due to thick skin.
  • Aged nose.
  • Ethnic nose: Asian, Arabic, Latin American.
  • Respiratory difficulty.

What are the strategic touches of Rinostep?

The Rinostep techniques are characterised by being very specific, minimally invasive, outpatient procedures. Two factors are required for application:

  1. Advanced technological equipment, such as piezoelectric scalpel through ultrasound.
  2. Skill and thorough knowledge of facial structures.

The beautification and harmonisation of each patient's nose is conducted taking into account the rest of facial structures, so that the therapeutic approach may require a selection of different steps or strategic retouching that the surgeon defines in a personalised and planned way with each patient. Rinostep's strategic techniques or retouching are:

  • Technique with sutures.
  • Hyaluronic acid.
  • CO2 Laser.
  • Polypropylene threads.
  • Infiltrations.
  • Resection, apposition or folding of cartilage.
  • Grafts.
  • Resection or enlargement of nasal wings.
  • Columella anchoring.
  • Temporal fascia filling.
  • Bone liming.
  • Osteotomy.

Technique with sutures

Through sutures that are applied to the cartilage we can remodel the nasal tip, adding or subtracting projection to it.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is an effective treatment to correct very specific defects of the nose, such as the improvement of a poorly projected or fallen tip, the easel, sunken radix or the cleft between the dorsum and the nasal tip.

To obtain the best results, it is essential to choose the proper density of hyaluronic acid, as well as the infiltration depth.

CO2 laser

Bulbous nose or rhinophyma, which presents hyperplasia of the sebaceous glands and thickening of the nasal skin, is corrected with fractional CO2 laser.

Polypropylene threads

By implanting a resorbable suture of polypropylene wires that is inserted at the level of the glabella and up to the nasal tip, we can lift a fallen tip.


To refine the nose skin, which reduces definition of the tip, we infiltrate filler materials at a deep dermal level.

Resection, apposition or folding of cartilage

Nasal cartilages can be reshaped, trimmed, superimposed or folded to increase or decrease volumes and modify the shape of the nose.


Grafts are applied in cases of cartilage weakness or in those in which the structures require very stable anchorage, as in fallen tips or patients with weaker tissue.

Resection or enlargement of nasal wings

To narrow the nasal wings, the skin that covers them is trimmed slightly. If they are too narrow, grafts can be inserted under the skin to enlarge them.

Columella anchoring

When the columella is low it can be secured on the nasal septum, on the cartilages or on the skin of that region.

Temporal fascia filling

In curved dorsum, the area can be camouflaged by grafting the temporal muscle fascia, which is extracted from this region under the skin of the scalp with a minimal incision.

Bone liming

For dorsums which are not overly prominent, gentle liming can be conducted to increase the smoothness of the lines.


Osteotomy is surgical cutting of the bone. When the bones are very prominent or broad, we need to modify their shape by severing them. Traditionally, this has been the most aggressive manoeuvre of the technique, since it is performed with a chisel. With Rinostep, we perform the osteotomy with a piezoelectric scalpel, which achieves better controlled and quality modelling of the nasal bone structures.
