Rhinoplasty/Nose

PATIENT 18-N

  

  

  

  

This is a 22YO lady who desired some subtle improvement of her nose.  Her nose tended to project interiorly a little too much making the nose look a little large for her face frame.  The tip of the nose was somewhat widened also.  She underwent a subtle rhinoplasty which improved the appearance of the nose.  It did not change her appearance enough that anyone would even know that anything has been done to her nose. 

We tried to perform our rhinoplasties so that they do not give the patient an operated appearance to their nose.  I want the nose to appear natural and fit the frame of the patients face because there is not one specific type of nose that fits everyone.  A rhinoplasty has to be tailored to fit the particular patients face. 

This procedure is done as an outpatient procedure at the hospital.

PATIENT 17-N

  

  

  

This is a young lady that sustained a severe fracture to her nose. The nose has a saddle deformity where it has been crushed deeply. It has left a large hump on the nose. Also, the nose is deviated towards the left. I have done reconstructive rhinoplasty and septoplasty on her. The nose now is much straighter. Her tip was extremely wide prior to surgery due to her injury. Now I have the tip narrowed and it has a much better shape. The lateral profile of the nose looks much better. Overall, she is breathing much better.

This was done as an outpatient procedure. Insurance covered most of this procedure.

This is a 21YO lady that had a hump on her nose as well as widening of her nose. She also had breathing problems. She underwent a rhinoplasty and septoplasty. Now she breathes better and the nose looks much better. Girls have a much attractive appearance if they do not have a hump on their nose. She had some drooping of her nose just a little and I tipped the nose up some also. Postoperatively, you can see that the nose does not have the hump that it had preoperatively and it is slightly tipped up.

Insurance will pay for the non-cosmetic portion of this procedure. Thus, this saves people several thousands of dollars.

This is a 20-year-old lady who desires some cosmetic improvement of her nose. When you examine the nose preoperatively on the frontal view, the nose is quite wide both at the level of the lobules of the nose and in the middle portion of the nose. On the side view, her nose droops some, she has a dorsal hump, and it projects too much. Postoperatively on the frontal view, you can see that we narrowed the nose and made the nose much smoother. On the side view, we have taken down the hump, tipped the nose up, and pushed the nose back towards the face.

Now the nose is more harmonious with her face. This is a procedure that is done as an outpatient. Insurance will often pay for a portion of this if breathing problems are treated at the same time as the rhinoplasty.

This is a 34-year-old lady who has been self-conscience about the hump that she has on her nose. She has always been reluctant to let people look at her profile pr have pictures made in profile because of the disfiguring hump on her nose. After a rhinoplasty, which was performed as an outpatient, she is now confident about her face and her nose. She can now have pictures made in any position without fear of having the deformity of her nose exposed.

This is a 24-year-old lady who had problems breathing through her nose and had a dorsal hump on the nose with some irregularities on the nose.  She underwent a rhinoplasty as well as some inside work in the nose to improve breathing.  Postoperatively, we have tipped her nose up, taken down the hump, and smoothed off the nose.  The nose now does not have the knots that she had in the upper portion of the nose and it is not indented in the middle portion of the nose.  We now have her looking better and breathing better.  Her nose has a very natural appearance and not an appearance of an operated nose.
