Rhinoplasty Patient 13
This 22 year old, referred to Dr. Parker by another patient, was concerned about the appearance of her nose. Specifically, she did not like her dorsal hump or drooping nasal tip when she smiled. Dr. Parker performed an open rhinoplasty in which he removed the bony and cartilaginous hump, performed infractures to appropriately narrow the nasal dorsum, removed the depressor septi muscles to avoid the tip from pulling downward with smiling and elevated and shaped the nasal tip cartilages under direct vision. The patient healed quickly following this procedure. She is very pleased with the attractive appearance of her nose.
A nose out of harmony with the rest of the face can be significant to a patient and alter their self image. The goal of nasal surgery is to achieve an improved but natural contour while correcting any internal deformities that may be causing breathing difficulties.
