This 57-year-old patient presented to the office for an evaluation after a rhinoplasty. She had a cosmetic rhinoplasty done many years ago. She noted that over the years, her nasal tip and bridge were changing in shape.
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. Dr. Antunes discussed the challenges related to her case, particularly as it pertained to her thicker skin and the amount of scar tissue.
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 the nasal framework. This improved the contour of her nasal tip and dorsum. She is super happy with the results and feels that the procedure made a significant improvement on her quality of life.
