Rhinoplasty Case #6235: 27 year old female with difficulty breathing, large hump, and droopy nasal tip
Rhinoplasty Case #4: Young female with crooked nasal deformity and deviated septum
This patient developed a crooked nose and deviated septum after upper jaw surgery. The crooked nose was corrected by placing spreader grafts. A larger spreader graft was placed on the side of concavity. The tip cartilage was re-aligned because the right tip cartilage was lower than the left. The septum was deviated to the right. On the bottom view of the nose the correction in the deviation of the septum can be appreciated.
Rhinoplasty Case #5569: Male rhinoplasty patient with concern for drooping tip and “hanging columella”
This patient complained of difficulty breathing from the left nostril from a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates. The patient also wanted to address the “hanging columella” and hump on the bridge of the nose. He underwent a septorhinoplasty and inferior turbinate reduction. The hump was removed and the hanging columella was repaired. The septum was straightened and the tip was refined by narrowing and sculpting the tip cartilages.
Rhinoplasty Case #9: 55 Year Old Female Treated for Wide Nostrils
This 55 year old Asian female came in with complaints of large nostrils, droopy eyelids, and under eye bags. She underwent alar base reduction via Weir excision and sill reduction to reduce the size of her nostrils so that they would fit her face better.
She also underwent upper eyelid lift with fat grafting to the brows to accentuate the eyes. Fat was also grafted to the cheeks and tear troughs to rejuvenate the eyes and face.
Rhinoplasty Case #10: Rhinoplasty For Crooked Nose and Difficulty Breathing
This patient had difficulty breathing after suffering trauma to the nose. The septum was deviated and the left nostril would collapse with deep breathing maneuvers. The nose also appeared crooked with the bones deviating to the left, the nasal bridge was widened due to multiple trauma, and the cartilages that made up the tip (lateral crura) were asymmetric. The patient wanted to correct the crooked appearance which required breaking the bones and resetting them (lateral and medial osteotomies), harvesting septal cartilage and putting the crushed cartilage under the skin to camouflage the deflection, and correcting the tip cartilages all via an open approach. Spreader grafts were also used for support to improve breathing and prevent nasal collapse. Cartilage alar batten graft was also placed to prevent the left nostril from collapsing (external valve collapse).
