Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) Cases

This patient presented with facial volume disproportion. Soft tissue volume absence and a crooked large nose created an aged appearance. She is shown after volume restoration (fillers and fat transposition) to lips, nasolabial folds, and eyelids; upper and lower blepharoplasty; and rhinoplasty.

The combination of procedures help create facial harmony and in this case facial beauty well beyond the scope of any one treatment.

This young man presented with a combination of functional and cosmetic issues. He had chronic airway blockage which led to constant snoring. He lacked tip support and had a prominent wide high bump. His surgery included septal work to straighten the internal passages, a turbinate reduction internally to further open the airway, cartilage supports for the tip, nostril narrowing, dorsal bone and cartilage reduction, and narrowing of the base of the nose.

Overall, an outstanding outcome showed at only 7 weeks post-op. Additional subtle refinements to follow.

This attractive female presented with a nose that dominated her face. A high bony hump with long over projected tip does not allow us to “see” the rest of her face.

Post-operative one year after rhinoplasty which reduced the hump, narrowed the bones, raised and shortened the tip, more fitting to this women’s facial structure.

This courageous woman had her nose bitten off by a dog.  Determined to restore her dignity and self-esteem, she embarked on a series of surgeries designed to use her body tissues to remake her nose.

Top row:  At her initial visit several days after injury

Middle row:  After pre-fabrication of nostrils with cartilage grafts and skin grafts to the forehead, the entire unit was transferred to reconstruct the complex defect

Bottom row:  After inset and fine tailoring, her nose is restored with her own tissues.  This case demonstrates the most complex variety of rhinoplasty surgery and combines both reconstructive and cosmetic techniques.

Severely crooked and over the projecting nose was treated by closed rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and caudal septal extension cartilage grafting to support the tip. A really nice, natural nose that blends into the face properly.
