Previous rhinoplasty had left resulted in a concave dorsal profile. A silicone implant inserted through an upper lip incision (lip still swollen in this early photo) provided perfect correction. This technique is less successful at lengthening the nose; we prefer to use cartilage grafts for increasing nasal projection these cases
Subtle technique achieved great rewards in this rhinoplasty. We reduced tip projection while reducing a dosal hump, and achieved a well-balanced result.
Closed rhinoplasty was performed to reduce a conspicuous dorsal nasal hump. This involves the use of a rasp to shave down the bump, then carefully (postage-stamp osteotomy) weakening the bone along the sides of the nose so that the edges of the nasal bones can be pushed together to close the open area that results from removal of the bump.
Open-tip rhinoplasty combined with upper lip lengthening contributed to this appealing result. Columellar cartilage grafting was used to increase the nasal tip projection.
Beautiful results from rhinoplasty do not necessarily require majour operations. With only a few deft maneuvers, we were able to achieve a beautiful and natural result for this patient.
We added support to the nasal tip and released the muscle pulling down the nose to achieve this beautiful result. We often use morphing software at consultation prior to surgery to allow us to best understand the goals of our patients.
In general, a rhinoplasty can be performed once someone is physically mature, and is psychologically capable of making the decision to permanently alter their appearance. In younger patients (16-18), we will always request that a parent/guardian participate in the decision, and often we will obtain a supporting letter from a family doctor or pediatrician who is familiar with the patient. Rhinoplasty can create profound improvements in facial cosmesis and for some, an improvement in self esteem.
