Revision Rhinoplasty Question
Thank you for your question. Your picture is limited in its scope, but it appears you may have a prominent edge of the cartilage graft which was placed on your dorsum. I would recommend that you discuss your concerns with your surgeon. If you are seeking a second opinion, be sure to consult with a board certified facial plastic or general plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty. You may be able to correct this prominent edge with a closed procedure, depending on its severity.
I hope that this helps!
Revision rhinoplasty needed. What is the best technique for this procedure?
A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish shaving down the dorsal hump and straightening the nose with all of the incisions placed on the inside of the nose.. A full set of facial photographs and an in-person examination are usually required on a revision rhinoplasty, since that's more difficult than a primary rhinoplasty. The droopy tip can also be lifted with cartilage grafting techniques. For more information And many examples, please see the link and the video below
You would have to be examined in person to determine what is appropriate. You also only showed one photo with a very limited view.
