Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
What Could Cause Tip Swelling to Look Ball Like and Be Raised at the Supra Tip Area and Will This Settle to a Smooth Transition?
Revision 8 weeks ago to center tip. Tip was not rotated superiorly,yet it seems lifted and round.Especially where the top of the tip cartilages meet the dorsum.Noticeable mostly on frontal.My cartilage was lowered 1-2mm to allow my tip to be slightly higher than dorsum.When running finger down dorsum it feels like a "speed bump" when I get to tip. Tip is still hard as well.An underlay graft was placed under right tip cart.A columellar strut and spreader grafts placed,projection suture placed.
