Revision rhinoplasty columella strut; I have no clue what to do?
Doctor Answers 1
Thank you for your question, and I'm sorry you're having a difficult time.The phenomenon you're describing can certainly happen with a columella strut. Look for a surgeon with significant experience in revision rhinoplasty. In Manhattan there are multitude.Shortening the strut can certainly cause the tip to drop, but there are some methods to secure the strut so it doesn't move as much. I would consider that a minor revision, but one that certainly requires skill and great understanding of rhinoplasty.
Best of luck!
