This 37-year-old patient presented to the office for an evaluation after a rhinoplasty. She had a rhinoplasty done for functional and cosmetic reasons in the past and she noted that quickly after surgery, as the swelling was improving, her nasal tip was changing in shape and her dorsal hump was apparently becoming more pronounced. In addition, she was noticing more difficulty breathing.
She met with Dr. Antunes at his Facial Plastic Surgery Practice in Austin, Texas, for a consultation to discuss her options. During the exam Dr. Antunes performed computer image morphing to determine the patient’s goals with her revision rhinoplasty.
The patient is shown here 1 year after her rhinoplasty. Dr. Antunes used a rib cartilage graft during her surgery to improve the support to the nasal tip and improve the cosmetic contour and function of her nose. She is super happy with the results and feels that the procedure made a significant improvement on her quality of life.
