This patient underwent aggressive reduction rhinoplasty and was left with a very small nose through which she was unable to breath, significant tip asymmetry, an over-rotated nose (points upward excessively), collapse of the nasal valves, an unnaturally lowered nasal bridge (“saddle nose deformity”), and a nose that no longer matched her face and tall frame. Dr. Thompson recommended revision rhinoplasty with rib cartilage harvest to reconstruct the missing and asymmetric components of her nose. Following surgery, the patient’s natural nasal configuration and proportions have been restored, her nose is symmetrical, and she is finally able to breath through it again.
