This busy Dallas resident had a previous rhinoplasty surgery done by another surgeon in 1987. This patient’s nose acquired deformities since then including an obviously upturned nose. This issue not only caused the tip of her nose to turn up, but also caused other aesthetic issues that left her nose looking thin and pinched in. Visually you might think her entire nose was collapsing. More importantly than the aesthetics, which had become severely compromised, her airway had also become impacted as well. She suffered significant breathing issues leading us to perform a secondary reconstructive rhinoplasty, which included rib cartilage grafts which were used to construct a stable foundation on which to rebuild her nose. Addressing the cosmetic and medical issues are both important considerations in nearly all rhinoplasty cases, and it’s critical not to sacrifice one for the other. Both the cosmetic and medical issues were corrected in this secondary rhinoplasty procedure and in the past 5 years since that surgery, the patient is still very pleased with the outcome and the patient’s nose remains completely stable.
