Rhinoplasty Patient 5
This 37 year old was referred to Dr. Parker by her primary care physician for a secondary rhinoplasty and to correct breathing problems. She had undergone a closed rhinoplasty by another surgeon several years ago. She presented now with difficulty breathing from both sides of her nose and concerns about the external appearance of her nose . She felt her nose was overly large and wide for her face, deviated to the right side and had an asymmetric, broad tip. Using an open rhinoplasty technique, Dr. Parker straightened and reduced the overall size of the nose, sculpted a more defined tip and corrected the internal breathing problems by addressing the deviated septum, inserting spreader grafts and reduced the size of the inferior turbinates. Postoperatively, the patient was delighted with the size, shape and natural appearance of her nose as well as the marked improvement of her breathing.
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.
