Ask a Question
Patient didn’t like the appearance of her nose, in particular the droopy, bulbous tip. Underwent open approach rhinoplasty to re-shape and re-position her tip cartilages with a natural appearing result. After suffering facial trauma, returned for revision rhinoplasty to build up her collapsed dorsum.
Constantly in the limelight, the appearance of his nose was just not flattering to the rest of his good looks. Correcting the tip cartilages through an open structure rhinoplasty and re-setting the nasal bones provided for refinement of the appearance of the nose he desired with a more confident, happy patient.
After being teased growing up, the patient overtime learned to love his nose, but still felt that the size dominated his face. Following his first consultation, the proposed adjustments to his nose felt too extreme, but a subtle adjustment instead balanced his proportions without any major change to his appearance while improving his breathing.
Having lived her adult life unable to breathe- essentially a “nasal cripple” resulting from a teenage rhinoplasty, the patient elected to undergo a major revision rhinoplasty. Her extensive open approach rhinoplasty required ear cartilage to reconstruct the weakened tip cartilages and correct the deviated septum with a huge success both in function and appearance.
