Statement of problem: There is no golden standard in measuring the width of the nasal tip and lobule. In this study we tried to validate the parameters Tip Index (TI) and Lobular Index (LI) as parameters for Nasal Tip Width (NTW) and Nasal Lobule Width (NLW) respectively. Trandomal suturing and lateral crura suturing were used to alter NTW and NLW respectively.
