Binder`s syndrome(maxillonasal dysplasia) is a disorder characterized by midface hypoplasia, flattened nose, convex upper lip, broad philtrum, crescent-shaped nostrils, acute nasolabial angle, absent anterior nasal spine and Class III malocclusion. Three defects(short maxilla, perialar flattening, and the hypoplastic nose) should be considered for appropriate correction method. A 25 years old man visited for correction of saddle nose deformity. The authors designed simple method for correction by using a silicone rubber and porous high density polyethylene sheet, Medpor(R), for nasal dorsal augmentation and the result was excellent. The most important part of Binder's syndrome correction seemed to be the correctioning the hypoplastic nose and it was highly effective only by simple correction of nasal augmentation with implants.
