I am considering Rhinoplasty in Missouri. I have met with a few ENT physicians and a few things have come up. I have a severely deviated septum. One is considering ethmoid bone grafts.
If done, the surgery would take five hours. Is this routine? It doesn't seem normal. I do I believe he specializes in revisions. What is the indication for ethmoid bone grafts? What are they for? When are they used in rhinoplasty? Also, why do some surgeons use internal splints and others do not?
I wanted to thank EVERY DOCTOR who submitted a response to my question about ethmoid bone grafts. It was such an immense help and really made me narrow down who I choose to do my surgery. You all are the ones who make this a fantastic place for patients to come to.
