Can I have my columella are strut removed and also have my tip projected?
A full set of facial photographs and an in-person examination are required to make a determination about a very difficult surgical procedure, such as a revision rhinoplasty. It's also important to identify what was performed in the first procedure, so of copy of the old records would be helpful.
It is possible to preserve tip projection with removal of a collumellar strut often. This is most useful when a strut that is too wide disfigures the nose.
