This 54-year-old patient had been self-conscious about the size of her nose for a very long time. She didn’t like that her nose was droopy and bulbous and also made her look older. She was looking for a nose that was overall smaller in size, with a smooth nasal dorsum and a tip that was more refined and lifted.
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 rhinoplasty. Dr. Antunes discussed the challenges of a rhinoplasty in patients with thicker skin and the limitations of how refined the nose can be.
The patient is shown here 1 year after her rhinoplasty and facelift. She is thrilled with the results and feels that the nose is soft and natural looking and complements her other facial features.
