What are the limitations of using rib for rhinoplasty?
Rib grafts for rhinoplasty
Apr 15, 2020
Rib grafts can be an excellent source of large quantities of good strong hyaline cartilage and the downsides are relatively few, but include the following: 1) a small scar on the chest, but this can be made pretty inconspicuous. In females, I’ll typically locate the incision in the infra-mammary crease just under the breast so that even bras and bikini tops will hide it. 2) there’s possibility of a rib graft warping over time which can create some asymmetries in the nose, but that depends …
Do surgeons ever usually fix a minor surgery detail (under local, free of charge) if the patient i
Cost of revisions?
Apr 13, 2020
Generally speaking it is customary for surgeons to waive their professional fee and not charge you for their services if they’re revising their own work. Of course, if it required going to a surgery center or having anesthesia provided by an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist, then those people’s fees would typically come out of your pocket. But for an in-office revision by your surgeon, it’s usually free. Your surgeon will NOT be offended if you ask and will probably be happy to put …
Is there any non surgical way (maybe injections) to get my nose (left) to look more like the right
Fillers for non-surgical rhinoplasty
Apr 13, 2020
Injectable fillers can often be used to correct the shape of the nose for problems like yours. I almost always start with a temporary filler (typically Juvederm) to allow the patient to try it on, so to speak, before committing to anything permanent. If they like that result but don’t want to keep having to refill the nose every year forever, I usually then proceed to Bellafill which is a permanent injectable filler. This is done in the office with simple local anesthesia (numbing medicine)…
Is it necessary to lift the tip of the nose?
Tip doesn’t have to change in rhinoplasty if it’s not necessary.
Apr 13, 2020
The easiest way to figure this out is to have your prospective surgeon(s) do some computer simulations of what your nose might look like after rhinoplasty. The surgeon should be able to show you what it would look like with and without additional tip rotation to see which version you prefer. It’s a great way to make sure you and your surgeon are on the same page aesthetically.Controlling the tip is perhaps the trickiest part of rhinoplasty, but there are techniques to control rotation…
Would I be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty and/or lip lift and/or chin filler?
Lip filler, rhinooplasty, chin.
Apr 1, 2020
Since you already have filler in the lips, it’s impossible to assess what might be ideal for any next step, but I think a lip lift is probably NOT indicated. Such a procedure is more useful for the older patient with a vertically long upper lip. The chin appears to be fine for a female chin.As for rhinoplasty, a good candidate should have specific concerns about what he or she doesn’t like about their nose. From the pictures, you appear to have a small hump and a little too much fullness at…
What are the risks of rhinoplasty/septoplasty with rib and is ear grafting better?
Rib cartilage versus ear cartilage for rhinoplasty
Apr 1, 2020
Rib cartilage and ear cartilage are actually very different types of cartilage (hyaline vs elastic). Ear cartilage is often limited by its shape (it already has some curves), size, and strength (it’s often a bit too soft or even crumbly!) but it’s useful for certain tip grafts, alar grafts, etc. Rib is usually better for patient who need more material or who needs stronger or straighter cartilage than ear cartilage will allow. This assumes, of course, that not enough usable septal cartilage…
Uneven ears after otoplasty? Need doctor advice. Do you think it can be fixed easily?
Otoplasty revision
Apr 1, 2020
Perfect symmetry is impossible, but I do think that there is room for improvement with your current results. Revision otoplasty to bring in the superior pole of the ears (that’s where I see the greatest issue), is a little trickier to do, but is still a fairly minor procedure. If you don’t feel comfortable with your current surgeon, meet with a couple of other doctors to see what they think can be done. These are, however, generally fixable problems.All the best,

Revision rhino recommendations? I can’t breathe, can’t smell and my left nostril is collapsed (Pho
Left alar collapse?
Apr 1, 2020
Because you’re also experiencing problems with the function of your nose as well as its aesthetics, you should consider seeing a surgeon who’s trained in both facial plastic surgery as well as otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat surgery). Such a surgeon should be able to determine why you’re having the headaches, obstruction, and altered sense of smell in addition to helping you with the appearance of the nose. Make sure to bring to your appointment the op notes (the surgical notes) from…
Rhinoplasty concerns. Will my long upper lip and high radix cause problems?
Deepening the radix
Mar 18, 2020
You’re right that your radix is a bit too high and anterior. This can (and probably should) be deepened during rhinoplasty, but be aware that there are anatomic limits on how much a radix can be deepened. As for the upper lip, no, it shouldn’t end up looking longer and in fact it might even look better if the nasal spine were reduced a bit. Your surgeon should be able to simulate for you on the computer what might be possible given your anatomy. That’s important to make sure you and your…
Are these rhinoplasty expectations realistic? Follow up to an earlier question
Realistic tip rhinoplasty
Mar 18, 2020
From the provided photo, this seems like a very reasonable possible result. Of course, the frontal view would also be important to see when discussing a bulbous tip. Just be sure that your surgeon has adequate experience in rhinoplasty and not just functional nasal surgery (like septoplasty).All the best,–DCPPearson Facial Plastic Surgery®
When do infections and necrosis usually occur after rhinoplasty?
Tip necrosis after rhinoplasty–almost unheard of.
Mar 5, 2020
Surgical infections typically occur between 4 and 7 days post-op. Infections and tip necrosis, while possible, are almost unheard of in rhinoplasty, especially in primary (vs. revision) surgery. In nearly 20 years of practice I’ve never had a rhinoplasty infection or tip necrosis.All the best,

Is this a collapsed valve after Rhinoplasty? Advice?
Nasal valve collapse?
Mar 5, 2020
From the photos it looks like there is some alar collapse. This can often be reduced with revision surgery and can include placing alar batten grafts and possibly rim grafts as well. The fact that there’s some variation with certain foods also suggests that the turbinates may be too large or too reactive (these are folds of tissue in the nose that congest or decongest). Make sure to see someone who understands nasal function as well as nasal anatomy such as an ear, NOSE, and throat surgeon …
What type of intervention do I need to correct the shape?
Ear scars
Mar 5, 2020
Correction would likely involve two stages. First would be revising the scars so that they are not as depressed at the skin surface would help significantly. This might also require revising the cartilage edges underneath as well. Once that had healed, any remaining contour defect of the underlying cartilage could be minimized with injectable fillers (temporary or permanent).All the best,

Suggestions to get a more feminine nose?
Feminine rhinoplasty
Mar 5, 2020
Your nose isn’t terribly masculine, but it could be softened a bit to look more feminine. Taking down the knuckled bumps at the bony-cartilagenous junction of the nose would help as well as reducing the height of the bridge slightly to create a better supra-tip break (a small scoop just above the tip…NOT an overly scooped nose). Additionally, reducing some of the bulbosity at the tip would help.These are precise and delicate changes so make sure you see someone who’s primary surgical focus…
I’d like to avoid invasive surgeries in general if possible? Would a filler help?
Filler rhinoplasty
Mar 5, 2020
Fillers can help problems similar to yours by building up the upper part of the bridge of the nose. This creates a longer line from the brows to the tip, which can increase the appearance of narrowness simply by altering the relative proportions. If you want to try fillers, I suggest starting with a temporary filler like in the Juvederm family of fillers. If those results were satisfactory, then a more permanent filler like Bellafill could be used so that you wouldn’t have to keep …
