Background: The beauty of nasal tip is very important in septorhinoplasty surgeries. Unstable tip rotation may lead some problems in the outcome of this surgery or performing a repair surgery. Hence, using an appropriate method to save the tip rotation for the long term is considered. Materials and Methods: We studied 30 patients who underwent rhinoplasty in Imam Khomeini Hospital Complex of Tehran and Razi Hospital of Tehran and divided them equally into two groups of rein (case) and septocolumellar (control), randomly. Then, we evaluated the rotation and projection of the nasal tip (nasolabial, columellar-labial, and nasofacial angles) after 2 weeks and 6 months of the surgery. Results: In both groups, 80% and 20% of the patients were female and male, respectively. The reduction of the nasal projection (columellar-labial and nasofacial angles) and nasal rotation (nasolabial angle) was significant in both groups during 6 months after the surgery (P > 0.001) that showed reduction in the nasal projection and rotation after 6 months in both group. This reduction was not significant in the nasofacial and columellar-labial angles (nasal projection) among two groups. However, in the case of nasolabial, we found less reduction in the case group that explains significant relation (P = 0.03). Discussion: Using rein flap can be used as a proper way to save the tip rotation in the long term and could be used in the patients with droopy tip noses. Conclusion: Using rein flap in nasal tissue seems to be effective in providing a stable rotation and projection. This method can be considered as a good option for providing proper projection and rotation.
