Rhinoplasty Patient 19
This 26 year old patient, referred by another patient, requested a more refined nasal tip; she requested it be less bulbous and the sides of the nose more narrow. Prior to surgery, Dr. Parker directed his computer imager to show the patient what she should look like after surgery. The patient was quite pleased with the anticipated appearance of her nose. Dr. Parker performed an open tiplasty to refine the tip cartilage and remove the fleshy side walls of the nose, known as the alar bases. The patient recovered quickly from the procedure and is delighted with the look 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.
