Revision Rhinoplasty- Repairing Notched Cartilage? (photo)
I had rhinoplasty a year ago. I have "notched cartilage" on the right side of my tip where my tip was narrowed. The "notch" basically looks like the cartilage is protruding instead of laying flat like it should. My doctor wants to repair this by going in and cutting the protrusion out. I told my doctor that I had heard that the way to repair it was through a cartilage graft that would essentially pull the cartilage back into place. What is your experience with repairing notched cartilage?
