After developing an understanding of treating the framework/septal layer of the nose, attention is turned to treating the superficial canopy layer of the nose simply in a complementary fashion. Using the same stages described in Chap. 7, approach, release, re-size, and reposition, the alar cartilages, tip, and skin layer are discussed at length in regards to matching the previously restructured framework layers.
