Dorsal cyst, one of the long-term complications of rhinoplasty, is rare, and very few cases have been reported in the literature. These cysts are mostly mucous cysts and are caused by the transplantation of the mucosa into the ectopic subcutaneous structures or by different materials that cause a foreign body reaction. Here, we present a case of a 28- year-old female patient with a nasal dorsal cyst that developed 10 years after a primary rhinoplasty. Since the cyst, which grew progressively over time, caused deformity and deformity in the nasal roof, it was totally excised and revision rhinoplasty was performed. No complications were seen during and after the surgery.
