This North Carolina woman in her early 20’s had a rhinoplasty in 2011 and a revision rhinoplasty in 2012 by a very inexperienced surgeon. She came to me for a discussion 2 years later because she was very displeased that her bridge was very irregular and her tip extremely deformed.  Too much cartilage was removed from her tip and what remained was inadequate to support a normal shape.  This led to collapse and also breathing problems.  Many patients like her who have undergone previous surgery, are quite surprised that this type of reconstruction rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty requires rib cartilage to obtain the best result.  Fortunately, the rib cartilage could be harvested at the fold beneath her breast to minimize the scar.  The after photo shows her 10 months after her revision rhinoplasty with multiple rib grafts and temporalis fascia grafts. She is very happy that her nose appears normal and as attractive as her face.  She also finds her breathing improved.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
