Introduction: Secondary nasal deformities are associated with trauma and secondary cleft nose (after primary cleft nose surgery). Nasal deformities affect esthetic, function, and psychological status of the patient. The goal of the secondary rhinoplasty is to correct both form and function, so that this positively impacts on their facial appearance. Aims: The study aimed to evaluate the patient satisfaction (subjective outcome) by rhinoplasty outcome evaluation questionnaire (ROEQ) preoperatively and postoperatively and esthetic outcome (objective outcome) by surgical team in patients with secondary nasal deformities. Materials and Methods: Secondary rhinoplasty was done in 13 patients of traumatic and unilateral secondary cleft nose through the external approach. Objective outcome was assessed by surgical team with clinical measurement, radiograph (lateral cephalometric), and photographic documentation pre- and postoperatively. Clinical measurements include nasolabial and nasofrontal angle. The patients completed the ROEQ for the subjective outcome evaluation. Results: There was significant improvement of subjective outcome (83.30%) based on the ROEQ and objective outcome based on the clinical measurement. Conclusion: Our study suggests that secondary rhinoplasty in trauma and cleft patients leads to both subjective and objective improvement of the facial appearance.
