In the appropriately selected patient, septorhinoplasty can benefit a pediatric patient presenting with significant nasal trauma, abscess, or mass that will likely result in a progressive deformity in the growing nose or with negative functional or psychosocial effect. Clinical and experimental observations support a conservative approach to cartilage scoring and resection in pediatric patients in which septorhinoplasty is deemed necessary.
