Options for rebuilding the nose with stem cells, 3-D printing, etc.
reconstructing the nose with 3-D printing iand stem cells is something that I'm sure will be present within a decade. Unfortunately now your way to do this is by selecting a very experienced revision rhinoplasty specialist who can show you many examples of very complex revisions.
Can tissue engineering and stemcells and 3D printing be used for rebuilding exact shape of a nose for severe destroyed cases?
Tissue engineering, stem cells and 3D printing all are promising technologies and may play a role in reconstruction in the future. Currently theycannot achieve what you desire. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. If you live outside of the United States, the surgeon should ideally be a member of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS). You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
