Congenital deficiency of lower lateral cartilages is rarely observed. Moreover, congenital lack of medial and/or lateral crus is extremely rare. Here, a case having nasal tip asymmetry with lack of nasal tip support, hence, the atrophy of medial crus is presented. Reconstruction of the medial crus was appropriately established with a septal cartilage graft. Supportive grafts were also used to enforce the tip and columella. The patient was extremely satisfied from the surgery. The practitioners must be aware of the deformities and deficiencies of the nasal cartilages as well as suitable reconstructions.
