Really deep radix, can it be fixed?
Doctor Answers 5
Since you have multiple areas of your nose to be addressed, an open rhinoplasty where both the deep radix and tip reshaping can be done. The deep radix can augmented by either cartilage grafts or a radix implant. Which one is better depends on how deep it is and how extensive the augmentation has to be.
Nonsurgical versus surgical rhinoplasty
If you just wanted to address your radix, a nonsurgical rhinoplasty could be done which would help the angle between your nose and forehead. However, if you also wanted to address your nasal tip, a full rhinoplasty including a radix graft and tip work would be necessary.
Cost of a rhinoplasty to fixate deep radix
The cost of a rhinoplasty procedure is directly proportional to the amount of time to perform the procedure under general anesthesia monitored by a physician anesthesiologist, the amount of time in the operating room, and the surgeon's professional fee for surgery to perform the operative procedure in addition to all the postoperative follow-up appointments. Reduction of the deep radix requires a cartilage graft harvested from inside the nasal septum and augmenting that area.
